I wonder if this Nurse would get the same ticket, if she had a bumber-sticker saying:

Are the stickers offensive? Do they have any obvious use of profanity? I'm not saying she should get a ticket, but whenever someone get's a ticket for violating the law or whatever...they can fight the law, but why go after the cop?

This entire issue comes down to one thing. Define profanity?
I noticed that no one posted the actual text on the bumper sticker. Maybe the text violates the ATS rule on profanity? Georgia's law was against profanity.

Georgia's law on profanity has been overuled 5 times already as being unconstitutional. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I disagree. I believe the police ticketed her because of the bumpersticker and her political beliefs.
I'm just glad he didnt turn her into the FBI for investigation as a potential terrorist.

NO I would not.
I also would not rush to judge the Policeman either.
I hope said cop tickets everyone with a $*** HAPPENS! bumper sticker, then. And everyone wearing the t-shirt or cap...
He really wouldn't like the one floating around that says UNFCKNBLVBLE, would he...
As for nasty...there's something wierd about a country that lets you depict the deaths of dozens of people on film, but doesn't like a little blue-tinged language that couldn't light a cigarette, let alone strip paint...
Her ticket was offensive and had profanity - but there was one little problem; the sticker was NOT PATRIOTIC! And non-patriotic sticker-users will probably get punished, just beacuse they can! There are probably several vehicles with stickers I posted driving around America - how many of them get a ticket for that?

Let me see if I've got this straight; the cop does his job and enforces the law; citizen doesn't like it so even after the ticket is tossed she sues the cop for doing his job. I wonder would she sue that cop for responding to her house being broken into? Or does she only sue when it's an easy way for her to get money. Ruining a cops career over him doing his job; what's next
A DeKalb judge threw out the ticket in April because the state's lewd decal law that formed the basis for the ticket was ruled unconstitutional in 1990.
