Only in Hawaii…
“Giving cops a “get out jail free card” to have sex with the very prostitutes they’re investigating – hey, what could go wrong?
A lot, say critics of the unusual Hawaiian law. State legislators included language to end the practice in a new bill cracking down on prostitution this week, though the change was removed following police testimony that claimed the protection was essential for undercover operations.
The amended bill passed the state house and is scheduled to go before a Senate committee Friday. However, some local advocates seek to get the ban reinstated at that Senate reading.”
