if you cuss at or flip off police officers can you get into trouble?

Yes, if you did it. Oooo your in trouble!

cussing at someone, especially a police officer is considered verbal assault.

why would someone want to be disrespectful that way towards a police officer?

If you get a police officer/teacher/security guard/etc. angry with you, trouble will find you! Action - reaction.

I've flipped off a cop before, because he almost ran me over. Then the sum ********* pulls up beside me 5 minutes later (had to wait in line for his coffee) to ask if I had a problem with him or all police officers. I ignored him, and kept walking. He drove off

What you should do is take your shoes off and sort of flip your toe at them..........

Here in FL, it's illegal to do that.

Title XLVI
CRIMES Chapter 843

843.02 Resisting officer without violence to his or her person.--Whoever shall resist, obstruct, or oppose any officer as defined in s. 943.10(1), (2), (3), (6), (7), (8), or (9); member of the Parole Commission or any administrative aide or supervisor employed by the commission; county probation officer; parole and probation supervisor; personnel or representative of the Department of Law Enforcement; or other person legally authorized to execute process in the execution of legal process or in the lawful execution of any legal duty, without offering or doing violence to the person of the officer, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

all i can say is dont do it...there is such a thing as "profanity Ordinances"..in certain city's..ever tried just talking to them? asking them how they are doing?...or are you intent on just offending them?...they have rights to ya know?...

If you don't do it, then you don't have to worry about the possible consequences, now do you?

Well, I did that in my intemperate youth. I was pulling into a parking place at a mall (I was 16 or so), and went to straighten my car out, but a car had pulled up behind me, I rolled down the window and said something like "move you A$$hole!!". He then flashed his unmarked cop lights at me, beckoned me over to his car, and told me that if he WEREN'T a cop, he'd a probably cleaned my clock.

So, long story short, you probably won't get in trouble but you'll get a talking too.

deservedly so.

DUH!!! Of course! Don't even think you will get away with that one! What are you thinking?? or maybe not!!!

Cardinals fan
lol i have a friend that did that in highschool. they never bothered him but they followed him everywhere he went i mean everywhere, he had to get another car after awhile

true story

if you just yell i dont think you can but if u threton or hit the cop yea but theyll prob find a way 2 arrest u if u yell but idk


you need to sit down and watch cops. :)

disturbing the peace. it can be taken as a threat.

Especially if he's already stopped you for something else. Go on, keep poking that hornet's nest with that stick!

disorderly conduct, or disturbing the police.

nas88car300 Carl E wins !!!!!!
yes you can...you are more likely to get a ticket if they pull you over and disrepect them

Ya it would be real smart to cuss or flip off a police officer. If you do you could be pulled over (if your in a car) or if your walking you can be arrested. cussing or flipping off a police officer is disturbing the peace and can and will be arrested. only an idiot would do that.
