So Much for Freedom of Speech in the United States

A woman has been arrested for the foulest of crimes!  She actually had the gall to text the word ‘jerk’!

Police say a Pennsylvania woman was arrested Monday for violating a police order to cease contact with her ex-boyfriend, reports the Morning Call.  On Saturday around 2:30 a.m., 45-year-old Kimberly Bush sent a text to her ex. The text read “jerk,” according to the arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper.  Normally, such a text message would not seem out of the ordinary between exes, but in this case, it left ex-boyfriend David Gosnell, Sr., a little spooked.  Police say that Gosnell was worried after receiving the text and that he felt Bush was lurking outside of his home that night, reports the Morning Call.

That’s so ridiculous.  If people were arrested for saying nasty things I could have a whole boatload of commenters arrested for saying far worse than jerk!

America, when did you get so messed up?  [Story tip from Tom Verenna on the FB].
