Where has common sense gone?. No one seems to think any more and when was laughing out loud a crime?. Whistleing ,singing, laughing what can you do in public any more with out being hauled in?.

Sounds like this has little to do with someone laughing.
Would hate to have a neighbor who hated me, or whom I hated...

Not for nothing, but some people do laugh uncommonly loud and obnoxiously at all hours of the night, it should be legal to stuff a gag in their mouths or pepper spray them.

thought: there are many ordinances on the books about noise levels... be it music/tv/party/argument
laughing is noise from you or a tv ...

neighbors have an equal right to some peace and quiet as well in reason of course , the general rule of thumb is noise must be reasonable , here within the confines of 50ft of your property

Papa used to get beat up by neighbors for his late night farting.
Didn't help...
He still sounded like one of those "War of the Worlds" machines doing their battle calls.
