Cops strike over hooker sex ban

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

UN­DER­COVER cops are set to go on STRIKE over plans to BAN them from shag­ging hook­ers while on sting op­er­a­tions.

Leg­is­la­tion near­ing Michi­gan gover­nor Rick Sny­der’s desk for ap­proval would re­move the le­gal im­mu­nity of of­fi­cers who have sex with pros­ti­tutes while deep un­der­cover.

The state Se­nate unan­i­mously ap­proved a bill last week, and the House is ex­pected to pass a sim­i­lar one later.

Both cham­bers had voted for the bills ear­lier this year.

Michi­gan is the last US state that gives po­lice of­fi­cers im­mu­nity from pros­e­cu­tion in such cir­cum­stances af­ter Hawaii made a change in 2014.

One cop raged: “It’s one of the few god­damn perks we get in this job. I’m vot­ing for strike ac­tion!”
