Couple at odds with Texas sheriff over anti-Trump sticker

The photo Nehls posted to Facebook shows a GMC Sierra with a sticker on the back that says "F*ck Trump and f*ck you for voting for him".

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Sheriff Troy E. Nehls said he wants to speak to the owner of the truck, who was at that time not identified. "If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you".

"People have called and are offended by this language", the sheriff said at a news conference Wednesday.

A Texas sheriff wants to charge a local woman with disorderly conduct for putting a giant anti-Trump sticker on her truck - but prosecutors say he's spinning his wheels.

"It would be risky to our freedoms if you start going that route where a sheriff has the right to start censoring people about what might be offensive", said Philip Hilder, a Houston criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor.

But Nehls, who is considering a run for a seat in Congress as a Republican candidate next year, says the sticker is inflammatory.

"A lot of females say I wish I had the balls to do that", she said.

"It's not to cause hate or animosity", Fonseca told the Chronicle.

"I've seen this truck, and I would pleased if the owner of this vehicle was prosecuted for disorderly conduct". "Hey truck owner, feel free to contact the ACLU of Texas".

There are many different opinions about not only the decal but about freedom of speech.

In response to the critics, Nehls posted the disorderly conduct law.

"I drive it all the time on a daily basis", Forsenca said, adding that she shares the truck with her husband. "Now you have a breach of the peace", he told KTRK.

A California judge ruled in a 1971 Supreme Court case, Cohen Vs. California, that a "Fuck the draft" jacket didn't break any statutes because it wasn't likely to incite violence.

Fonseca told the newspaper she and her husband were just exercising their freedom of speech and did not plan to remove the sticker.

"Hey Sheriff Snowflake, how about you get out and fight some real crimes?" wrote a commenter. Days later, the charges were dropped after police attorneys conceded that the stick-figure display was protected by the First Amendment.

"Anybody traveling down the road that is behind that truck may have voted for Trump [and] that is where we might see a breach of the peace", the sheriff explained.
