The ACLU sued the police in May 2010 on behalf of a woman ticketed for yelling "asshole" at a motorcyclist who swerved close to her.
The civil liberties group said such profanity is protected speech under the Constitution
...Officers will receive mandatory training in free speech, and will be told that "obscene" does not mean profanity, indecent speech, or gestures, the ACLU said.
This is pathetic, this is sad, this is unbelievable deceit. How far out of touch with the minds of the Founding Fathers can you get and still claim the title of defender of the Constitution? They should really be called something like the (Anti) American Constitution Demolition Union. It's criminal that they are allowed to go on their destructive course as they do. What's the matter with our justice system that the ACLU wins cases on the basis of their misuse of the Constitution?
Oh I don't want the woman prosecuted for such a word, that isn't the thing that matters. What matters is the perversion of the First Amendment. THAT matters! If you want to change the profanity laws, fine, but leave the First Amendment alone! Such laws do not violate it!
Doesn't it ever occur to anyone that the US had anti-profanity laws going back to the Founders and THEY didn't consider it a violation of the Amendment that THEY wrote?
We also had religious expressions in public and on government property going back to the Founders and they didn't consider THOSE a violation of the Amendment that THEY wrote either.
So we're liberating all the evils of Pandora's box and claiming they are protected by our Constitution. America is taking a long time to go down but down it will go in the end, and perhaps the very end will be quite the noisy crash.
