Indiana police officer, Rodney Vawter, used to have a vanity license plate that read, “0INK,” as a sort of homage to the stereotype of a cop being a pig.
It was his way to be funny and to show his police pride.
He had the license plate for three years before Indiana decided it was inappropriate. He sued. He won.
Now Indiana is trying to get his case overruled so that they won’t have to give out “offensive” license plates. The Resident discusses.
