An opinionated bumper sticker is different than one that is just blatantly inappropriate. I agree with the cop's actions.

If they are going to ticket for that, then they need to ticket those trucks that have nut sacks hanging from the hitch. I think it's offensive to sit in traffic and see testicles.

The bumper sticker was obscene and broke the law, end of discussion. Quit trying to make it into something it isn't. There are ways to voice an opinion that don't involve using language that might be offensive or hurtful to others. I cuss like a sailor but I'm not going to plaster my vehicle with it. It's called being considerate.

the Confederate Flag did not stand for slavery get your facts right before you post something like that. do your research you will find out the real meaning behind the Confederate Flag. I'm so sick of hearing that it stood for that.

The Supreme Court has never interpreted freedom of speech to include obscenity. Ever.

You can sue anybody. I could sue my neighbor for being ugly. Doesn't mean you're going to win.
