Does free speech cover "flipping off" someone, including a police officer? The Doctors discuss the case of a man who gave the middle finger to a state trooper after the officer allegedly cut him off at an intersection while pursuing another motorist.
The man received a ticket for provocation of an officer, but reportedly fought the ticket claiming he had the right to use the middle finger and that his free speech was violated. A first court ruled that he was responsible for the ticket, but he appealed the case and an appellate court ruled in his favor saying he had the right to express himself, even if the other person is offended.
"This was the right thing to do... this is America, if we don't like something, we can use the finger," Attorney Areva Martin says, explaining that she feels individuals should be allowed to express themselves in this manner even to police officers.
As for your health, plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes, "While you're driving, what is best for your health is don't flip anybody off."
