    Link: Giving Cops A Middle Finger Is NOT A Crime - NY federal court rules flipping off a cop is not a basis for reasonable suspicion. So you have that in your arsenal now.

    Sounds like this judge uses common sense. Nice to see that.

    Making an obscene gesture at a cop is usually against a local ordinance but, I`d say it`s also free speech.

    Freedom of expression taken to the extreme?

    Also remember you CANNOT do this if an officer gives you an instruction. Even if is a very simple one.

    @codejockey, nope it is NOT free speech. You really should read up on what that actually means.

    If you`re so thin skinned that somebody flipping you off makes you throw your cop weight around you should be looking for a new line of work.

    It`s actually illegal for police to have a blacklist like that. The NYPD has a database of everyone who receives a summons and keeps the information (even if the persons case is dismissed) as a part of their "stop & frisk" policy. The ACLU found out and is going after them because, in keeping this list, the NYPD is actually violating state laws concerning privacy & sealed records.

    I was told it wasn`t illegal if you do it from inside your car, but if you put your arm out the window they can nail you for improper signaling or something dumb. Cops are A-holes tho. Flipping one off may not give one the right to come after you, but my guess is they will find a reason to arrest for something.

    Go ahead, flip them off.
    You always want to draw the attention of the police in a negative way. Be sure to piss them off early. Good idea.

    not
