Just responding to the Ocean is CLOSED thread. I too live in Long Branch, NJ and the same thing happened to me. After arguing with the guy for awhile, he said he was trying to protect me. I asked the cops why they don't ticket people for eating at McDonalds. He gave no response. Take this as a warning. If you haven't noticed, this country has become a Facist nation. Stop crying about it, educate yourself as to what is really going on, and TAKE ACTION! Otherwise not being allowed to swim after hours will be the least of your worries.
