Cops in Alaska continue to arrest sex workers after having sexual contact with them

You may not be aware that police officers across the country are currently able to have sexual contact with sex workers before arresting them. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone if you weren’t privy. Apparently 90 percent of people in Alaska didn’t know either. Which makes it all the more shocking that police in the northern-most state are fighting for their “right” to continue the practice.

Glamour reported that state lawmakers have been in an ongoing battle with the state’s police force over a proposed bill that would outlaw what many sex worker’s rights advocates consider to be traumatic sexual assault.
