Honolulu Police Department Asks State Legislature
To Allow Officers To Have Sex With Prostitutes

In what is proffered to be helpful in the combat of prostitution
and the underlying organized crime that often promotes this,
members of the Honolulu, Hawaii police department have
requested legislative authority to engage in sexual relations
with prostitutes in order to further infiltrate the illegal profession.
This was an amendment to a bill that would expand the enforcement
and prosecution of sex industry players that has passed the state
House and is coming before a Senate committee.
Authorities say they need the legal protection to catch
lawbreakers in the act, and strict internal controls prohibit misconduct,
but is this a novel idea to break up the sex traffic industry or one that
may lead to exploitation of its vulnerable members?
