    Appeals court: Motorist cannot be stopped for giving police the middle finger

    A motorist cannot be stopped for “giving the finger” to a police officer, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.

    In a lawsuit against two police officers, the court held the insulting gesture did not constitute “reasonable suspicion that criminal activity or a traffic violation was afoot.”
    Why would a cop even be allowed to? Giving the cops "the bird" is a First Amendment right.

    Of course cops generally are tyrants anyways.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The cops are legally empowered to pull you over for no reason whatsoever, throw you down on the hood of their car, forcibly take your blood, subject you to a full body cavity search and hold you in jail for at least 24 hours without charges. All they have to do is mention the word "drugs" and they can go so far as to confiscate your car without a conviction. Unless you have money and/or status, there ain't **** you can do except take it up the ass and say, "Thank you, officer."

    Flipping the cops the bird is just as smart as wearing a confederate flag t-shirt, putting on blackface and going into the ghetto.
