Did local vice cops cross the line?

`Lynnwood police concede they engaged in “rarely used” tactics during an undercover investigation into a suspected prostitution ring.

Those tactics, which included officers allowing prostitutes to masturbate them in exchange for cash, have raised questions among law-enforcement officials, legal experts and the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office. [..]

On April 27, an officer entered the shop and paid $60 for and received a full “body shampoo,” which included genital and anal touching. The officer returned two other times for massages that also included masturbation one session with two prostitutes and again paid for the service.

A second officer also received a massage and was masturbated, according to charging papers.’
