Default The ethics of on-duty cops

Interesting you mentioned 'police.'

Here's a very recent article pertaining to two on-duty Chicago cops having consentual sex with an intoxicated woman, but then it got out of hand at her apartment - which led to a sexual assault case. There's no denying they offered her a ride home because she was walking alone at night near Cubs Wrigley Stadium. There's no denying she slept with each of them, and there's no denying a neighbor saw one of them running out half naked but forgot to take his cell phone with him.

Does that make her a slut? Some of the media says yes (based on how they word their stories.)

Does she have a sexual assault case? The neighbor reported she was running from her apartment, screaming. Plus, the cops have been stripped of their powers for having participated in sexual acts on-duty...

Just a few posing questions - just a continuance of this interesting topic...
