The Federal U.S. court of appeals ruled that every citizen has the right to show the middle finger to the address of the police officer.
It is reported NPR. It is known that the reason for this trial was the incident that occurred in 2017 in Michigan.
A policeman stopped a girl for speeding. The man was gracious and fined it for a lesser violation. The girl did not appreciate such a gesture. She showed the officer the middle finger when I left.
A police officer stopped her again to be fined for speeding. The girl sued him in court.
The judge stated that “any officer would know that a citizen who raises a middle finger protected by the First amendment”. He also noted that the officer did not have the right again to stop, because she did not break anything.
