Oh those poor police officers, forced to expose themselves to that conduct. You can see why the investigation was protracted - clearly they needed time for counselling...

Who knows, perhaps the officers involved in the investigation were all 100% gay men (or 100% straight women) who derived zero pleasure from the task.

Yes, let us salute these courageous officers who put their very lives on the line for months in order to quash this grievous menace to the continuation of our civilization itself. They bravely put aside terrorist investigations, white-collar crime costing billions and street thugs maiming and killing indiscriminately in order to ensure that puritanism lives on. Well done !

Body cameras on all officers, of course?

And the video is public record, yes?

Wishful thinking, but no.

Reminds me of the "Hot Coffee" glitch in GTA San Andreas.

Except you didn't pay her in the game.

And she did a lot more to you.

And you never got the coffee.

Serve and Protect

I am sure the residents of Everett, Washington will sleep soundly tonight knowing their public servants are willing to go to such lengths to protect them from caffeine related depravity. Though how does the above investigation not fall foul of entrapment laws?

Re: Serve and Protect

Entrapment laws? In this day and age? Surly you jest. We still need to keep the 'For Profit Prisons' full, to extract the proper revenue to keep the owners happy.

What was the game called?

"customers threw wadded cash and baristas caught it in underwear or bikini bottoms."

Was it a "Dunk 'n Donuts" type of deal?

Because first there are hot thighs and breasts, but all you're left with afterwards is a greasy box to put your bones in.

In the hope of finding a humorous reply to your comment I googled "naked baristas".

Top hit was youtube video of said "bikini baristas" in Washington State.

If you're going to be pedantic and want pictures then I guess you'll just need to screen cap

But to be fair (and yes I did watch it) they gave a warning first. The comments in the front are worth it (probably not on a work machine)

Re: miaow

Google internet search "Trump models". Far too many articles to link to, but I have yet to find one saying the girls were locked into a pizza restaurant basement. (The usual story they get to stay in an expensive hotel. Each pays the full rent but dozens share the same room).

a $20 “whip cream show”

Are they sure it wasn't a "whipped cream show"? There's a big difference...... or is there? I can't figure things out anymore. Did the bikini barristers wear those old-fashioned horsehair wigs?

There used to be quite a famous one in Dresden. Some of my Japanese ex-pat colleagues there were rumoured to have the cleanest cars in Germany, to the extent that if they visited any more they'd be down to the bare metal...

WTF?

WOW, a real danger to the community shut down. Vicious criminals beware.

They need to change the signs on the cop cars to read, To Protect and be Serviced I guess they were 'on the job', while being on the job.

With all the real crime going on, this is the bet they could do to protect their community. What a joke. I bet the real reason they barista ladies were charged was because they didn't serve real cop food, you know, donuts.

Re: WOW, a real danger to the community shut down. Vicious criminals beware.

Probably not. I know a bit about that sort of busybody. They usually operate through a local organisation or mailing list. Only one of them has to actually encounter the offensive material. That person then writes up a description of it and sends that out to the group, and the group members in turn use that to get offended second-hand and write up their demands that law enforcement Do Something. So most of the complaints may well be from people who have never had any first-hand experience of the activity are trying to stop.

The FRC actually has a leaflet on their website advising people on how to get offensive businesses shut down. That's one of the strategies they suggest. They actually advise that people refrain from looking at the material before writing their complaint, as it may be spiritually dangerous.

They long ago changed the motto on the side of the LAPD cars to "Obey & Survive".

I don't understand how they could even begin to charge prostitution when clearly no such offence occured?

I could imagine indecent exposure as the place was probably not licensed for such a thing and/or the idea that some people might not be expecting it when they go to get coffee. But prostitution?

In the US, the definition of prostitution varies by state. In some of them it is very broad.
