Driver facing charges for writing “F*ck Trump And F*ck You For Voting For Him” on his truckBy Mason White 12:40 PM November 16, 2017
A prosecutor in Texas said that a driver who displayed offensive remarks against President Donald Trump and those who voted for him is facing charges.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office announced on Facebook that they wish to speak with the truck driver who wrote “F*ck Trump And F*ck You For Voting For Him” on the back window of his truck.
Sheriff Troy E. Nehls wrote: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359.
“If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. 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 said that the disorderly conduct charge against the owner of the truck is appropriate because the offensive display meets the definition of “abusive, indecent, profane, or vulgar language in a public place, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace, makes an offensive gesture or display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace.”
Linzi Bee wrote: “I’ve seen this truck, and I would be pleased if the owner of this vehicle was prosecuted for disorderly conduct. My children saw this, and I was infuriated they were subjected to this offensive display.”
46-year-old Karen Fonseca, whose husband owns the truck, said that he won’t take off the sign anytime soon because he is just exercising his freedom of speech.
She confirmed that her husband did not mean to cause hate or animosity.
