Cop punches woman in face for lesbian kiss

How can you ever trust the police with being protectors of the public?

In the United States, how you trust the police with your 'civil rights'?

The real answer: You can't?

So what happens when you kiss (your lesbian partner) in public?

You get punched in the face and arrested in Hawaii.

Note to self:  Do not go there, they might even start attacking hetero couples.

From the news.com.au article on 30 Oct 2015 of the headline:

A LESBIAN couple on holiday in Hawaii claim they were arrested by a cop who didn’t appreciate their public display of affection.
The New York Post reports that Courtney Wilson and Taylor Guerrero were holding hands and at one point “hugged and kissed” each other while strolling through the aisles of Foodland on Oahu’s North Shore, a lawsuit said.

Officer Bobby Harrison, who was shopping at the store in uniform, witnessed the canoodling and warned them to “take it somewhere else,” the suit states.

The eagle-eyed officer then spotted the two hugging a second time and allegedly cornered them at the check-out line and grabbed Wilson by the wrist.

“He was bumping his belly against Courtney,” Guerrero said. “He said, ‘you girls don’t know how to act. You don’t know the difference between a motel and a grocery store.’”

A scuffle ensued and Wilson said she was “punched in the face” by the cop.

Both women were charged with felony assault on an officer and spent three days in jail. The duo were forced to stay in Honolulu as a condition of their release and at one point lived in a homeless shelter.

The charges against them were later dismissed.

The Honolulu Police Department said that they launched an internal investigation into whether the women were wrongfully arrested.

Officer Harrison, a 26-year- veteran, remains on full active duty.
