Bible Belt copper puts woman on trial for truck testicles

The police chief of a small South Carolina town will ask a jury to decide if a woman broke the state’s obscenity laws by driving a pickup truck with plastic testicles hanging from the back.

Bonneau Police Chief Franco Fuda ticketed Virginia Tice, 65, in early July at a local convenience store after spying the adornment dangling from her truck.

South Carolina law considers a bumper sticker, decal or device indecent when it describes, in an offensive way as determined by contemporary community standards, “sexual acts, excretory functions, or parts of the human body…”

The Charleston law firm Savage & Savage will represent Tice for free, attorney Scott Bischoff said. The trial had been scheduled for next week but was delayed because the defendant will be out of town.

“She’s such a sweet lady and she just says ‘I don’t want to pay the fine.’ We’ll let a jury decide whether this is really criminal behavior. I don’t want to take away from the importance of free speech, but it’s really comical,” he said…

Fuda said if the fake testicles were a free speech issue, “I don’t know what they would be trying to express.”

I think what they’re trying to say is that a certain segment of the American population has the sense of humor of a horse’s ass.

The fact remains it isn’t up to the local commissar in blue to decide what your free speech is saying or laughing about. You have the right to decide, think and speak – or laugh!

    It must be nice to have such a wealthy town that they can afford to have a trial on something that will definitely be overturned by the Federal Courts.

    But bibble thumpers only care when money is being spent on things they aren’t interested in.

    I personally don’t approve but put these in the same category as the yahoos that put Confederate Flags in the back window of their pickups. Stupid, but free speech allows the world to see how stupid they are.

    Really? That stupid? Really? Does he know what those silver naked ladies with the bent knees that show up on trucks’ rears express?

      What is Fuda trying to express with Superman plates on the Bonneau Town Police car? He has Superman under shirt, poster, etc. He has a juvinal facination or does he really think of himself as Superman?
