Texas Woman Adds Sheriff's Name To Decal After Arrest

Postby toucana on November 21st, 2017, 7:19 am 

A Texas woman in Fort Bend County has added the local sheriff’s name to a " “*** TRUMP AND **** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM” decal on the back of her white GMC Sierra pickup truck after the sheriff tried to arrest and prosecute her.

Sheriff Troy Nehls had posted a picture of the truck online and asked for information that might identify the owner claiming that “Our prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it."

Ms. Karen Fonseca was subsequently arrested on an unrelated warrant relating to an alleged fraud after an anonymous tip-off, even though she claims that her recent background checks all came out clear. She remains convinced there was a connection “I’m almost certain it does have to do with this. People abuse the badge, and in my opinion money talks. When you’re in politics, people know how to work the system.

State Rep. Ron Reynolds subsequently came to her defence, and said:
We have to protect people’s First Amendment Right to Free Speech. A difference in political views does not give Sheriff Nehls the right to target citizens. These actions by Sheriff Nehls could be an abuse of his law enforcement authority.

Sheriff Nehls quickly deleted his original post and according to local radio station KPRC 2 wants to pretend he didn’t say exactly what he said.

Ms. Fonseca meanwhile has widened her brand and added “**** TROY NEHLS, AND **** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM” to her rear-window display.
