Time to repeal all nanny state restrictions and make new laws like this one

(KRON) - Authorities in the city of Guadalajara have approved a law that allows sexual relations in public, unless someone files a public complaint.

This means the police will no longer have the authority to sanction public sex acts as long as there isn’t a complaint from a third party, according to Mexican newspaper El Universal.

“Having sexual relations or committing acts of exhibitionism of a sexual nature in public places, vacant lots, inside vehicles or in private locations in public view will be considered administrative offenses, as long as a citizen requests police intervention,” according to the modification to article 14 of the Bylaws of Good Government.

The measure was drafted by council member Guadalupe Morfin Otero, who says it’s being done to prevent police from extorting “people ‘giving each other’ in a consensual manner, especially young people.”

The law also hopes to allow police to focus on fighting crime rather than people who perhaps may not be able to afford a hotel.

Otero cites a survey conducted among college students of whom 90 percent say they had experienced extortion by police who threatened to take them in for committing “immoral acts of exhibitionism.”

Some citizens are citing this as a moral issue in a city that is considered one of the most conservative in Mexico.

Vague law. Should i fear i may maybe offend someone when having intercourse in public? Is this a “maybe” crime?

In Mexico the cops just make laws up…This law is designed to stop corruption, police harassment and extortion . In America there are so many laws that we all break them everyday. We should get rid of all nanny state laws…


The homeless and criminals don’t obey laws anyway.

All the pesky laws like smoke detectors child care seats, speed limits in rural areas, strict dui laws, rent control, zoning, building permits just make life miserable for the rest of us. We should remove all laws put in place after 1945. We would all be freer and happier.

Deregulation is the magic to solve our problems. We need a good leader in California

I was thinking about dumb laws moving out of the apartment. The parking garage has sprinklers. It’s literally concrete. Any fire would take a long time to spread beyond 1 car if it spread at all. Why does it need sprinklers and how much is that adding to the cost? There’s so many regulations that are just adding cost without actually making us safer.
