Cops are so sensitive.  Call one a dirty pig and they get the vapours.

I seem to remember the Supreme Court ruling that this type of speech is protected.  So fark the police.

So we have a judge who issued a warrant without probable cause and a DA who just makes shiat up about speech having to have "a legitimate purpose."  This is going to be good!

BarkingUnicorn: That is most definitely protected speech.  Hope the  ACLU sees this.


Glad that was already the first thing in the thread. This is about the officer getting revenge and not about the good of the public... but mostly, it is a clear case of someone's right of expression being trampled. Don't the police read the news? This is exactly the kind of case that gives the ACLU a raging hard on.

You have the right to say anything that doesn't offend those who enforce the rules.

basemetal: Meh, that's going to cost the taxpayers of that town a bit.


I can speak for personal knowledge and say that whatever they make the town pay, it doesn't have it.

The officer who the message was directed toward, Maury County Sgt. Rob Wagonshutz, filed a complaint about the message, which led to the charge.

Wagonshutz said that the message crossed the line of free expression because it used vulgar language and "created a physically offensive condition by an act that serves no legitimate purpose."

 Oh God, I hope this either gets thrown out or runs all the way up to the Supreme Court.
