Lucas Jewell was Pulled Over by Florida’s Camoflaged Cops for Flipping the Bird
While we don’t recommend flipping off the police while driving, if you’re in a hurry, it is still a First Amendment protected right. Lucas Jewell found himself in the sights of militarized police after insulting Alachua County Sheriffs. but he knew his rights, confirmed by a recent court ruling that flipping the bird isn’t sufficient reason to initiate a traffic stop by police. Now this Florida man, a Navy Veteran and former Gainesvilly city commission candidate says he’ll file an internal affairs complaint with the Alachua Sheriff’s office and possibly a lawsuit in the courts too.
