After making headlines with her anti-Trump truck decal last week, Karen Fonseca found herself sitting in jail. But, not for the reason you might think.

Fonseca traveled around Houston in her white pick-up truck, proudly displaying her dislike of President Trump. She claims she is not trying to cause problems with the divisive message,  “It’s not to cause hate or animosity,” Fonseca, 46, told the Houston Chronicle.

Fort Bend County Sheriff, Troy Nehls, caused more controversy over the decal on social media. He posted a photo of the profane sticker on his Facebook page last Wednesday, threatening to charge Fonseca with disorderly conduct. He said he has received thousands of complaints from the community.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas responded to Nehls’ post, with a picture of case law dealing with free speech. “@SheriffTNehls, you can’t prosecute speech just because it has the word “f*ck” in it. (And the owner of the truck should feel free to contact @ACLUTx),” they wrote.

Of course, the mere suggestion that the anti-Trump message was inappropriate, also had Trump-haters outraged. Nehls subsequently took down the post, after receiving death threats against his wife and family. Because, you know, violence is their answer for dealing with anything they don’t like.

Afterwards, Fonseca taunted police over their inability to arrest her for the obscenity-laced decal. “There’s no law against freedom of speech, nothing in the law book here in Texas,” she told KHOU-TV in Houston. “I’ve been stopped numerous times, but they can’t write me a ticket.”

Unfortunately for her, the Constitution doesn’t protect criminal activity. 

Just Desserts

According to records, police took Fonseca in to custody around 2 p.m. last Thursday. As it turns out, she had an outstanding warrant. The warrant, issued by the Rosenberg Police Department for fraud, dates back to August. Not surprisingly, Fonseca is denying that the charges are legitimate.

She has been suggesting that her arrest is a conspiracy and that authorities are trying to punish her for bashing President Trump. “People abuse the badge, and in my opinion, money talks,’ she said. “When you’re in politics, people know how to work the system.”

Her husband and owner of the truck, Mike Fonseca, posted the $1500 bond and she was released the same-day. The sheriff’s department is declining to discuss specific details about the fraud investigation. The family says they have no intentions of removing the decal any time soon.

    From garbage you get garbage.
    Nothing new with the foul-mouthed filth on the left. And since she’s been charged with fraud, I hope she gets the max allowed. And in a just world she’ll have a jury of 12 that’ll do just that.
    That hole in her nose apparently leads to the other side of her head.

    Her husband must be as stupid as she is. He bailed her out. I would have taken that garbage off my truck and left her to rot.

    People think they can do anything & get away with it; if the police have a fraud charge against her, I believe them. People have no respect for God & persecute our President, but when we had a radical islam terrorist, traitor, Obama, he was ok. Now that we have a decent, honest, hard working pres. (who does not accept a salary), they want to bash him; they should remember that our God says in his word, vengeance is mine; thus says the Lord, I will repay & that goes for all people coming against God’s choice for our nation, Donald John Trump.

    Stupid is what stupid does. That family is obviously without common sense and morality. Ethics and morality seem to be absent with the socialist folks today.

    Regardless of what criminal activity she has been involved in, the sticker is obscene and she should be ashamed to be displaying it. Having similar problems with law enforcement, I am not surprised that the police now have conjured up additional allegations against the woman. She, being a grown woman, should know better than to display the form of vulgarity that obviously was causing an uproar in her community. Remove the F K and feel free to enforce your freedom of speech as much as you like. Children should not be exposed to such profanity. PERIOD! I’m in agreement, that hole in her nose must lead to another in her head!
