HONOLULU, HI – Hawaii 5-0’s are urging island legislators to keep a controversial law on record that allows undercover cops to have sex with prostitutes. Yes, you read that right! Sex with prostitutes in order to catch them in the act! In other words, to make their jobs easier, Honolulu police want to ‘Protect and Serve’ and get serviced as well.
This interesting exemption in state law legally protects police when they suspect someone is hooking when officers just want to make sure before busting them. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. The debate over this law stems from a recent bill that attempted to do away with this indecent investigative technique. But Honolulu’s finest fought to keep the penal code on the books.
Critics of the clause think it’s crazy, saying it further victimizes sex workers who may have been forced onto the streets. In their eyes, they see it as: boys will be boys. Even if they are in blue. As of now, Hawaii is still keeping a “hang-loose” attitude to policing by allowing their cops to copulate.
