Woman refuses to remove crude anti-Trump message from pickup

Woman refuses to remove crude anti-Trump message from pickup

In a post on Facebook, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy E. Nehls said he had received numerous calls about the offending sticker.

The owner of the truck with a "F (expletive) Trump and f (expletive) you for voting for him" sticker has been arrested for an outstanding warrant out of Rosenberg.

Hours after the post continued to rack in more comments, Nehls ultimately chose to schedule a press conference to address the issue at hand - he took a step back from the idea of even filing charges.

A Texas sheriff wants to charge a local woman with disorderly conduct for putting a giant anti-Trump sticker on her truck - but prosecutors say he's spinning his wheels.

Owner of the truck Karen Fonseca said she was a former employee of the county jail and that she and her husband custom-ordered the sticker just after Trump was inaugurated in January, the Houston Chronicle reported.

"It would be unsafe to our freedoms if you start going that route where a sheriff has the right to start censoring people about what might be offensive", said Philip Hilder, a Houston criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor. "They're like, 'We wish that we could do this and we had enough guts to do it, and you're doing it, '" Fonseca said. "I don't want to see anything happen to anyone".

"I've seen this truck, and I would pleased if the owner of this vehicle was prosecuted for disorderly conduct".

And the Internet responded swiftly as thousands of commenters flowed in offering relentless trolling, thoughtful defenses of free speech, and cutting rebukes of partisan hypocrisy.

Whilst both Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and Tenth Doctor David Tennant were both fans of a trench coat . Throw in some sturdy boots , and this Doctor means business (and, we may add, is rather stylish).

Sheriff Troy Nehls said, "The Facebook post accomplished its objective and now we know who owns the truck". He later said he supports freedom of speech rights.

"The sticker has attracted attention many times before, Fonseca said".

The mother of 12 said she and her husband stand by the stickers and don't plan on taking them down. "Now you have a breach of the peace", he told KTRK.

In response to the critics, Nehls posted the disorderly conduct law.

Profanity is sometimes, but not always, protected under the First Amendment's right to free speech.

Nehls later shared the Texas statute he was thinking of, which prohibits language that "tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace".

"According to the case, the Supreme Court overturned a conviction for the crime of disturbing the peace for wearing a jacket in the courtroom that displayed the phrase "F*** the draft".
