Driver speaks after 'F*** TRUMP' truck sticker photo goes viral

The owner of the truck, who KPRC 2 identified as Karen Forsenca, said the sticker would stay up as it has for almost a year, according to the local news station. "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." .

"It's not to cause hate or anonymity", she told the paper.

"No Sheriff Nehls, you can't prosecute speech just because it contains words you don't like", ACLU said.

The vehicle owner, Mrs Fonseca, told local media she has no plans to speak to the sheriff, telling the Houston Chronicle: "It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it". People shake their head. "They smile. They stop you", said Fonseca. "My kids can read, and I don't want this garbage in front of them".

"It is important to respond to calls from residents, yes". The law says someone is being disorderly if they are intentionally or knowingly using "abusive, indecent, profane or vulgar language in a public place". The driver could also be in violation if it's determined he or she made "an offensive gesture or display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of peace". A California judge ruled in a 1971 Supreme Court case, Cohen Vs. California, that a "Fuck the draft" jacket didn't break any statutes because it wasn't likely to incite violence.

Comments on Nehls' Facebook post were varied.

"We have not threatened anybody with arrest; we have not written any citations", Nehls said. It doesn't matter what people think'.

Fort Bend County narrowly voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election by 51%, with 45% for Mr Trump, according to the Washington Post.

Nehls said he wants to avoid a potential confrontation on the road, where another driver might take offense to the profane anti-Trump display.

"I think it could be a fine line", adds Sheriff Nehls. "With people's ... mindset today, that's the last thing we need, a breach of the peace". The Root Everything is bigger is Texas, even bumper stickers.

Barry Klopfer wrote: 'It's called political speech and it's protected by the First Amendment.

"I'm offended that a sheriff in the United States would harass an American citizen over political speech", comments Jason.
