"Police officers driving by in Dinkytown cited him for spitting, which carries a hefty fine. According to the city ordinance if you spit on sidewalks, bus or public areas it's a $115 misdemeanor."

There is either far more to the story or there are too many cops in Mpls.

I seriously doubt there are too many cops in Mpls.

Target Field is a public area in Minneapolis. The cops should start handing out citations staring at the end of March.

This law has been on the books for at least a few decades.

I am thinking that this became law back when Minneapolis had wooden sidewalks to walk on. When they tried to make Minneapolis a more civilized area to be in.

While the spitting has become a sort of epidemic in our culture, it pales in comparison to the lack of consideration displayed by the pigs who spit their damned gum wherever they feel like.
