This summer Ocean City has been a hot bed of conversation by many that have visited the resort town. The topic you ask? the unruly hoard of street performers that have descended since the 2012 ruling brought about by a lawsuit from the ACLU that took away the ability of the local leaders to regulate street performers.
This has led to a boardwalk full of anything and everything. With no ability to police the performers you have a wild west happening up and down the boards. People are simply buying Halloween costumes and standing out trying to make money getting pictures taken. The problem you ask? how do we know they aren't a sex offender? a child predator? the answer is we don't because OC has no power now to find out more about the performers.
The way it is now is every man for themselves hustling for the best spots. OC needs to get back into the business of selling spots on the Boards for performers which would allow at least some basic knowledge of who the people are that are performing around families. This would bring in extra revenue for the town as well.
Regardless of what the ACLU wants, you simply cannot allow an anything goes mentality out in the public eye.

When the victim went to the book bag to count the money, the victim was struck in the head from behind and fell to the ground.
