How did I know you were gonna say that
This woman is going too far. I can understand her fighting the ticket, personally I wouldn't want to pay it either and I would not give someone a
ticket for having one. But, imo, that is not the issue.
According to the article, the cop does not have a history of targeting people with anti-bush bumper stickers.....so why is the ACLU along with Denise
Grier trying to ruin someone's career over a 100 dollar ticket for a bumper sticker? A bumper sticker that according to state law is
The state law prohibited lewd or profane stickers and decals on vehicles.
The cop was carrying out state law, so why seek punitive damages on him? If you really wanted to make a difference shouldn't you go after the
law....not the cop who is enforcing the law?
Grier, a nurse who works at Emory University and other hospitals, also is seeking punitive damages against the DeKalb police officer who gave her
the ticket because he "acted with reckless disregard" of her rights, the lawsuit said.
What is enough? She wants a letter stating that her sticker is constitutional, she wants the state law changed.....hell, let's not stop
there....let's F%^& over the cop who doing his job. He didn't make a bad judgement call, he gave her a ticket for displaying a prohibited bumper
Grier is seeking damages from the county for "emotional distress," according to the lawsuit.
Wether you agree that the bumper sticker should be displayed or not, I think everyone can agree that the cop should not be targeted for carrying out
state law. Target the state, go after the law, if you want. That's what will make the difference.
