DO THE CONVICTED GET A FINAL CIGARETTE BEFORE THEY'RE SHOT?:

See a smoker in Omaha? Dial 9-1-1: Nebraska city imposes toughest enforcement policy in nation (10/22/06, WorldNetDaily)

Omaha's tough new anti-smoking ordinance banning the practice in nearly all public places comes with an even tougher enforcement policy.

The Nebraska city's elected leaders and police department are urging residents who see violations to call the 9-1-1 emergency system for an immediate response.

Omaha banned smoking in public Oct. 2. Penalties are $100 for the first offense, $200 for the second and $500 for the third and subsequent infractions.


The accompanying photograph shows Sean Penn and says he could be in hot water the next time he's in Omaha. Anybody here have a problem with that?

Look out behind you it's the nanny state come to punish all bad boys and girls. Lock them in the sauna and seal the door.

I see it as a brilliant ploy to keep Sean Penn out of Omaha. Some things are worth the price, after all!
