Charges dropped against man who ‘flipped off’ Colorado state trooper


The Colorado State Patrol dropped a harassment charge against a 35-year-old man who allegedly displayed his middle finger to a Colorado State Patrol trooper while he was driving.

FOX31 reported that Shane Boor was charged with criminal harassment after flipping off a state trooper who had pulled another driver over to the shoulder of the road.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado had planned to provide Boor with free legal defense.

“Our client engaged in peaceful, silent symbolic expression that is protected by First Amendment,” said Mark Silverstein, ACLU Legal Director.

 In that case, Temper Bay, try extending the little finger, which indicates that you do not care enough to "send the very best."

 Such conduct (flipping off a cop) has already been ruled a form of political free speech - strange though - courts don't consider it such free speech if a judge is flipped off.  Judges are sooo silly.
