Denise Grier, an Atlanta nurse, was ticketed for driving with a bumper sticker that read, "I'm tired of all the BUSHIT." Accused of brandishing "lewd" material, the officer approached her with his hand on his weapon and dispensed a $100 fine. Grier reportedly has no intention of paying the ticket, saying "I am so appalled at the officer's attempt to squash my freedom of speech. It's not just a Democrat/Republican issue. Y'all need to get beyond that. It's my right to speak, and yours." Stay tuned for her court date, April 18.
