West Palm Beach Considers Imposing Heavy Fines for Hateful Messages on Buildings
The West Palm Beach city leaders are set to vote on an ordinance that would make it a crime to leave hateful messages on buildings in the city.
If passed, violators could face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine, the maximum punishment allowed by the city ordinance.
The new law would also make it easier for building owners to sue offenders in civil court.
Meanwhile, State troopers are still searching for the driver who shot a man on the turnpike.
The incident occurred near the West Palm Beach Service Plaza on Friday night when the driver of another car tried to merge into the victim’s lane.
The driver then pulled up alongside the victim’s car and fired several rounds into it.
The victim is expected to recover.
