Depending on whether or not you get stopped, and what that officer's politics may be, free speech could cost about $100. At least that's what it's costing a GA nurse.
On March 10, she was driving home from dinner when a Dekalb County police officer pulled her over.
“At least initially, I was just surprised because I hadn’t done anything wrong,” she says.
“When he approached the car, he had his hand on his weapon, and I was in my nurse’s uniform with a stethoscope around my neck. He asked for my license, and then said, ‘Any idea why I stopped you.’
“I said no.
“ ‘You have a lewd decal on your car.’ ”
You've got to read the rest, as there are some important issues, other than politics, that surround this case. Particularly the fact that the GA Supreme Court put an end to the "lewed bumpersticker" crapola some 15 years ago, and yet police officers are still ticketing people for the same.
