Town Pushing for Policy that Will Allow Cops to Accept ‘Sexual Gratuities’ from Citizens by Matt Agorist for The Free Thought Project
Over the years, TFTP has reported on utterly asinine requests for special privilege for law enforcement. We’ve seen departments exempt themselves from sex with prostitutes so they could turn around and arrest prostitutes as well as dozens of states that allowed cops to have sex with people in their custody. Now, a town in New York is taking this ridiculousness to the extreme by proposing legislation to allow officers to receive ‘sexual gratuities’ while on duty. Seriously.
As if figuratively licking the boots of an authoritarian state wasn’t good enough, citizens of Tonawanda, New York are pushing the Town Board to change its policies to allow cops to receive literal sexual favors from worshipful citizens.
When this report came across our radar, we originally thought it was satire. However, the Buffalo Chronicle is not The Onion and according to report, this is actually happening.
The push to allow citizens to “tip” cops with sexual favors comes amid sexual misconduct allegations against a popular career police officer, Brett Rider, 46.
According to the Chronicle, the Town of Tonawanda is planning to discuss the possible termination of Rider, a veteran public safety dispatcher, after an internal investigation found he committed misconduct on the job. On Monday, the Town Board passed a resolution to let the town supervisor or police chief to discipline dispatcher Brett Rider.
The Board would not explain what Rider is accused of doing, but it is widely rumored that Rider is accused of having sexual intercourse with a married woman, age 56, while on duty. The department also stepped up sexual harassment training after the allegations.
“We want all of our departments to educate their employees and get good training on a variety of topics, harassment being one of them,” said Joseph Emminger, Town of Tonawanda Supervisor.
Apparently, some citizens are upset about Rider’s accusations of sexual misconduct so they are pushing for legislation to allow cops to engage in sexual misconduct without repercussions.
The Chronicle notes that the policy would not allow officers to request sexual gratuities under any circumstance, but in the event that such a non-monetary gratuity is offered, the officer would not be punished for accepting it, so long as the encounter is less than 15 minutes and the officer declines to take his next scheduled 15 minute break.
Residents are advocating for offering up sex tips to cops as a way to boost morale.
