The woman who made headlines last week after her run-in with a local sheriff who objected to the large “F*CK TRUMP AND F*CK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM” decal on the back of her truck has found her revenge.
A photo of Karen Fonseca’s truck went viral last week when Sheriff Troy Nehls of Fort Bend, Texas posted it on Facebook with a message seeking information on the truck’s owner whom he wanted to arrest on disorderly conduct charges. After angry Facebook users schooled him on the concept of First Amendment rights and free speech, Nehls deleted his post, but apparently not before getting the information he needed.
The sheriff then proceeded to arrest Fonseca in front of her six-year-old daughter on felony charges related to possession and use of a fake ID. Fonseca posted a $1,500 bond and was released shortly thereafter.
Fonseca is convinced that the decal was the real reason for her arrest, but she remains defiant about protecting her rights to freely express her political opinions. Not only has she kept the “F*CK TRUMP” decal, but she has now added a second decal:
“F*CK TROY NEHLS AND F*CK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM”
Fonseca posted a photo of the updated decal on her Facebook page so you can now see the truck in its full free-speechified glory.
Revenge is sweet. As for Sheriff Nehls, he told an interviewer from KPRC, the local NBC affiliate, that he’s not surprised by Fonseca’s action and that he “thinks it’s disgusting.”
