Hawaii law allows undercover police officers to have sex with prostitutes
Fox News ^ | 3/21/14

Posted on 03/21/2014 11:53:50 AM PDT by lifeofgrace

Honolulu police officers have urged lawmakers to keep an exemption in state law that allows undercover officers to have sex with prostitutes during investigations, touching off a heated debate.

Authorities say they need the legal protection to catch lawbreakers in the act. Critics, including human trafficking experts and other police, say it's unnecessary and can further victimize sex workers, many of whom have been forced into the trade.

So in Hawaii they can't make a case against prostitutes unless they catch them in the act (with their own selves). Hmmm....I wonder who this law benefits?

Baltimore Detective McNulty paved the way several years ago on The Wire.

He went undercover to a high end brothel and one screw up after another delayed his team to make the arrest while had to proceed to protect his cover.

At first glance it seems to be a bad thing to allow this exemption. However after thinking about it, it might not be a bad thing to allow this. If you ever want the police to make any prosecutions you might have to allow it. I can think of a number of scenarios. If a cop is undercover trying to take down a prostitution ring, he might have to have sex with a prostitute to prevent two to the back of the head, or his cover and the case being blown.

Hawaii relies on tourism to the point where any loss of such trade would devastate the islands. They’d dang well better not eliminate prostitution or that place would become a ghost town.

Oh wait, they are only targeting independent prostitutes that aren’t giving their 25% to the local police benefit society. Never mind.

I understand the humor and all, but I do not think many police officers are going to volunteer to go undercover among homicidal maniacs just to get a piece of ass.

Has to be a tough assignment for the guys working the male prostitute side, or do they subcontract that out to the SFPD?

Yeah, seems like a fairly easy way to figure out if someone is an undercover cop or a legitimate scumbag. ‘Have sex with this trick, or we will know you’re a cop.’

If it was a male prostitute ring, I bet they’d change their tune about that “exception”.

They should just legalize prostitution, then it’s OK for everyone not just the cops.

Not only legal but remember the cops get to spend your tax money paying the fees to screw these whores. And they get full job pay for their time and “service “ too. Hmmm -—Two or three or more people having hard passionate ( and probably very kinky) sex all day in a fancy Hawaii beachside view resort hotel suite, All Paid to have these orgies by— guess who? Yup, us poor taxpayers. Gives a whole new new meaning to “screwing the stupid taxpayers “

Hawaii law allows undercover police officers to have sex with prostitutes

So what? It also allows kenyans to pretend to be born in Hawaii, and issue fake birth certificates.

They should be required to do stings on 50% men and 50% women, otherwise it’s discrimination.

Its still not okay for the prostitutes.
We should perhaps just legalize usury.
Exact same thought processes, and exact same callousness.

Often wondered. How can a law apply only to non-LEO’s?

Truth: any such law is invalid.

When I was stationed in the Army in Germany back during the Cold War, as a physician, my sergeant was required at times to accompany some of the physicians when they inspected local brothels to assure against venereal diseases. (I wasn’t one—let me hasten to say.) “After the inspection,” the sergeant told me, “we lost a few of the doctors for a while.”

“Cops should not be allowed to break the law to enforce it.”

The same goes for this instance on the TV show COPS.

In south Florida on one segment, undercover cops were selling crack, and then arresting the individuals who bought crack from an undercover officer.

If it’s illegal to buy crack, shouldn’t the cops get in trouble for selling crack?

As one who frequently visits Honolulu and lives part time on Oahu I feel sorry for any of the cops there that actually would have sex with a prostitute. one doesn’t have to wonder why Obama goes out on his own when 6’5” 250lb mahus are all over the place.
