Are you kidding me? Absolutely not. Not legally, not in the U.S.

Now he might get AWAY with it, but that wouldn't make it legal.

Policemen are no different then you or I in my opinion. They shouldn't be able to do anything to you that any other citizen would. Again, the law is there job, they are not the law. If I cannot beat the crap out of someone legally for flipping me off then they should not be able to either. As a matter of fact they should be held more strictly to the letter of the law then the common man because they know the laws better.

no reason physical harm should come to you by law enforcement unless you harm or threaten harm on them first.

that aside, i can take a flipping off, no problem...but disrespect my family and i may have to cut ya...i'm not a cop, tho. go ahead, call one.

Oh Yeah... I guess I was wrong about that.

It's not legal for him to do it.. but you would have a hard time prosecuting him.

As a general rule of thumb,

I don't flip the bird to people who are armed!

I'm not sure I'd hold up Germany as an example of law and order...not just yet! It wasn't all that long ago that they had some (ahem) difficulties handling authority in a responsible and just manner.

I think that comment puts me in the running for the "Understatement of the Year" award!!

Legal or not flipping off a cop is a real stupid thing to do. No matter what type of situation you're in. He's probably lucky they didn't drag him in on some kind of protective custody charge.
