Profanity-laced Biden sign legal, officials say

The Daily Sentinel: While displaying banners or flags that include foul language may be obscene to some, it isn’t illegal, county officials told a Grand Valley resident this week.

In a letter to Mesa County Sheriff Todd Rowell earlier this month, resident Jim Hutton wrote to complain about a banner hanging on the side of a home on Rosevale Road that says, “(Expletive) Biden.”

“Is this behavior of displaying blatant and purposeful obscenity and profanity legal in Mesa County,” Hutton asked. “If it is, then I have no further comment on the matter. However, if this action is in violation of law or ordinance, then my question is, how does this matter go unnoticed or ignored for over a month by the deputy sheriffs that patrol that road on a regular basis.”
