While Tropical Storm Edouard was bearing down on Texas, a woman in a Wal-Mart in La Marque, TX had the audacity to use the word “fuck” while speaking with her mother. (Telling her that there were no more batteries).
“I looked at my mom and said, ‘They’re all —-ing gone,” Fridge recalled.
Suddenly, Capt. Alfred Decker, the La Marque assistant fire marshal, appeared from around the corner, dressed in a fire department uniform. “He said, ‘You need to watch your mouth,’ ” Fridge said. Perplexed by who the man was — his badge said “fire department” — Fridge offered a scant apology. “I was like, ‘Oh, OK. Sorry?’ ” she said.
Fridge walked away, but said the man ordered her to come back. She then protested, telling him she was having a private conversation with her mother that was none of his business. When the man ordered her to come to him and she refused, she said he pulled out his handcuffs.
Rogier van Bakel has some great commentary on the story.
The worst part is that Decker’s boss not only backed him up, but said that Decker “had to act.” Yep, “FUCK” is such a threat to freedom that this inbred fucking moron felt the need to arrest a woman for saying the fucking F-word. Fuck Alfred Decker.
The greatest threat to our freedom is not a bunch of dipshits hiding in caves and slums in the middle east — it is repressed and sad little men like Decker.
