"CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — If a New Hampshire man thinks cops lie, he's free
to say so on his license plate, the state's highest court ruled Wednesday.
In a unanimous decision, the state Supreme Court agreed with the
arguments of David Montenegro, who wanted the vanity plate reading
'COPS LIE' to protest what he calls government corruption.

State law prohibits vanity plates that 'a reasonable person would find
offensive to good taste.' But the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union
argued that the law is unconstitutionally vague and gives too much
discretion to a person behind a Department of Motor Vehicles counter. ..."

@OmSigDAVID,
Interesting....I recently found out if someone is arrested a mugshot is posted all over the internet. If the person is exonerated of charges the picture remains. The police department posts a mugshot ( it ruins professional, personal, business reputation ). How is this legal?! People pay thousands of dollars to have a mugshot taken off the internet....even if charges were dismissed. The people posting these photos, are the same charging to take them down. WOW...even if provided proof of charges dismissed, These websites refuse to take the photos down.. Several states are fighting this issue....it's called extortion!
