Hawaii law lets police have sex with prostitutes

HONOLULU (AP) -- 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 could further victimize sex workers, many of whom have been forced into the trade.

Police haven't said how often -- or even if -- they use the provision. And when they asked legislators to preserve it, they made assurances that internal policies and procedures are in place to prevent officers from taking advantage of it.

I guess if the DEA gets to sample the drug they confiscated why can't they sample their perps ?

I think it's perfectly alright as long as it's done during "coffee break".

Would this not be entrapment?

Only if she gets pregnant

It could be, but whether or not the cop has sex with the hooker is irrelevant to entrapment.

Prostitution is the illegal act of agreeing to exchange sex for money. (Don't get me started on the hypocrisy of this).

In the U.S., entrapment occurs only when the defendant can prove that she would not have thought of engaging in the illegal activity without the enticement of the government.

Hawaii law lets police have sex with prostitutes. If this is true, it is just sick. Police intimidation at it's worst.
