Anti-Trump truck window decal causes controversy for sheriff

He wrote: "I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359".

In Nehls' now-deleted post, which was saved and shared by the ACLU, the sheriff asked anyone who knows the owner of the truck to contact his office.

Even with the negative backlash, Sheriff Nehls says he does not regret the post, but did seem to back away from considering the disorderly conduct charges.

It's unclear whether or not the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department will proceed with disorderly conduct charges now that Forsenca and her truck have received national attention.

"I don't think people are offended, and if they are, they just need to take a deep breath, change the channel, drive by the auto, and get on with their lives", Wice said.

"Unless [Nehls] can show me where it says that in the law book, it's not coming down until the weather takes it down or I replace it with something else", he told local station KHOU.

"I did not believe it was a prosecutable case based on the definition of disorderly conduct", said Healey, who is also a Republican but is not seeking re-election, according to the Chronicle.

Houston-area sheriff goes after driver with 'offensive' anti-Trump decal
Driver speaks after 'F*** TRUMP' truck sticker photo goes viral

"F*** TRUMP AND F*** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM" reads the decal in bold white letters. The owners, Karen and Mike Fonseca, however, were stunned to learn they could soon be charged with misdemeanors.

So far, he hasn't received almost as much help finding the owner as he has comments about free speech, the First Amendment, negative decals from the past that had no legal consequences, drinking the Kool-Aid, and suggestions on what law enforcement could be working on instead.

Healey, the district attorney, told the Chronicle that his office was not contacted before Nehls posted the photo to Facebook.

The driver of a pickup displaying a profane message to President Donald Trump and his supporters in the Houston area says she won't remove the decal.

In a Twitter post, the ACLU told the sheriff, "you can't prosecute speech just because it has the word "f*ck" in it".

The U.S. Supreme Court in 1971's Cohen v. California said that a law on disturbing the peace violated the Constitution when it was applied against a man who wore the phrase "f-k the draft" on a jacket.

But Fonseca says she's just exercising her rights. New Hampshire that certain "fighting words", which would tend to incite violence, are not protected under the First Amendment.
