'F--- Trump' graphic on pickup stirs controversy in Texas


The Fort Bend County sheriff's Facebook post about a pickup driver with a F_K Trump sign on his window has blown up.

Couple defending profanity filled anti-Trump sticker.

"We're not going to be arresting anybody, and we're not going to be releasing the name of the person who owns the truck, either", his office says. "Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it, ' Nehls wrote in his message, issuing what could appear to be a thinly veiled warning." .

Healey, the district attorney, told the Chronicle that his office was not contacted before Nehls posted the photo to Facebook.

Along with almost 20,000 comments, the sheriff's post was shared more than 10,000 in less than 24 hours. "Due to the hate messages he has been receiving towards his wife and children, the Sheriff will not be commenting on the matter further". Fonseca is passionately opposed to Trump's presidency, particularly on the subject of his proposed border wall, and people reportedly tell her that they "wish they had the guts" to post similar anti-Trump messaging on their vehicles.

"It's hard to believe that a simple sticker could cause so much arousal", Fonseca said Thursday before her arrest.

However, The Houston Chronicle did name one of the truck's drivers - Karen Fonseca, whose husband reportedly owns the truck. "It makes people happy". "They want to shake your hand". "I think this is more a problem with political speech than actual language". The law says someone is being disorderly if they are intentionally or knowingly using "abusive, indecent, profane or vulgar language in a public place". "Now you have a 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".

In a press conference on Wednesday, Sheriff Nehls appeared to back down from the idea of pressing charges, acknowledging his support for freedom of speech. "We have not written any citations", Nehls told reporters. However, Nehls also specifically cited the "offensive language" on the truck as a cause for concern.

In Fort Bend County, southwest of Houston, Hillary Clinton won the majority of the vote in last year's presidential election, with 51 percent vs. 45 percent for Trump.

Both Healey and Nehls are Republicans, the Chronicle reported.

Even the ACLU Texas chapter got in on the frenzy.

They say everything's bigger in Texas, and that apparently includes truck decals. A day later, the driver said the sticker would not be coming down.

A few states still have laws specifically prohibiting offensive bumper stickers.

The sheriff said his concern was that the language on the sticker could cause a risky confrontation. He filed a lawsuit against the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, claiming the sticker does not meet the Constitution's definition of obscenity.
