Driver says ‘COPSLIE’ is free­dom of his speech

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

CON­CORD | A New Hamp­shire man told the state’s high­est court Thurs­day that deny­ing him a van­ity li­cense plate that reads “COPSLIE” vi­o­lates his po­lit­i­cal free speech rights

David Mon­tene­gro, who last year legally changed his name to “hu­man,” said he wanted the plate be­cause it high­lights gov­ern­ment cor­rup­tion.

The New Hamp­shire Civil Lib­er­ties Union, which joined the case, said the DMV reg­u­la­tion is un­con­sti­tu­tion­ally vague and gives too much dis­cre­tion to a per­son be­hind a counter.
