The Olathe police officer had given Schaper a ticket for running a stop sign when Schaper expressed himself with the one-finger salute. He was promptly given a citation for the obscene gesture.
The city will now pay Schaper $4,000 and pay another $1,000 for the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas and Western Missouri. It has also agreed to train its officers on such confrontations, which I assume involves having officers stand as instructors flip them the bird.
