Cops frequently exempt themselves from laws that us commoners are forced to obey, like speeding, DUI, window tint, etc.. However they are now going for The Full Monty; cops want to make it legal for them to have sex with prostitutes. Seriously.
Of course this license for sex will be solely reserved for "investigative purposes," and the pleasure experienced by these cops will only be had to "protect your freedom."
After all, how else are they going to be able to catch prostitutes if they don't sleep with them first? </sarcasm>
According to KITV, 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 over the provision.
Authorities say they need the legal protection to catch lawbreakers. 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.
It's not immediately clear how often - or even if - Honolulu police have sex with prostitutes, and authorities assure legislators that internal policies and procedures are in place to prevent that scenario.

Those opposed to the bill say that it leaves the door open for abuse. That's the understatement of the year. Requesting an exemption to ANY law is an act of abuse in the first place!
"We need to have sex with prostitutes to save 'murica!"
This type of blatant hypocrisy is typical of corrupt governments. We should expect nothing less as the federal government is a bastion of Pharisaism. The prime example of this is the waging of war to "spread peace worldwide." After all, peace is not attained unless we drone bomb minivans full of women and children, right?
The hilarity of this legislation is that these dolts think that participating in prostitution will prevent prostitution. Huh?
These cops want to bust men and women for victimless and consensual interactions that they deem illegal, while at the same time doing the exact same thing but passing the bill to the taxpayers!
Mad yet? You should be!
