I love this law because it falls into the category of crimes against
chastity, morality, decency and good order.
Needless to say, disorderly conduct is the number one crime to be applied by the police whenever they wish to simply arrest someone.
Say one wrong word and you'll violate this law. If the police officer is not treated with respect that (s)he feels (s)he is due, the trumped up charge of disorderly conduct will be applied.
Police officers like Gregory Reardon, whose behaviour towards me leaves me to believe that he is an active supporter of the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC) love this law and use it very frequently.
The police officer does not care if the charge sticks or not. It is merely a tool to arrest us and make our lives miserable.
This particular charge against me was dropped before trial because it was applied in a frivolous manner.
