    Middle finger protected by the constitution - US court

    Middle finger protected by the constitution - US court

    When it comes to the middle finger, police might need a thicker skin.

    A federal appeals court says a Michigan woman's constitutional rights were violated when she was handed a speeding ticket after giving the finger to a suburban Detroit officer in 2017. The decision means a lawsuit by Debra Cruise-Gulyas can proceed.

    In a 3-0 decision on Wednesday, the court said Taylor Officer Matthew Minard "should have known better", even if the driver was rude.

    At its core it actually is an important issue. Can cops fine or harass someone for not arbitrarily curling their fingers the way the cop wants them to?

    iLOL Irrelevant attempt at rebuttal and my opinions are what they are.

    You on the other hand, through your avatar, are purposely flipping everyone off. Which is offensive, uncivil, impolite and bypassing the word sensor.
