Hawaii police officers accused of making man touch urinal

Yahoo News

HONOLULU (AP) — The FBI is investigating four Honolulu police officers who are accused of forcing a man to place his mouth on a urinal inside a public restroom, according to the police department’s top official.

Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard said another officer reported the suspected misconduct after the officers responded to a complaint Sunday afternoon of a person trespassing in the restroom.  

“If true, these allegations violate the core values the HPD stands for,” Ballard said. “Our officers are sworn to uphold the right of all persons, and I expect every officer to treat every member of the public fairly and with respect. Personally, I am appalled at the behavior, if it is true, and appropriate action will be taken.”

The department conducted an initial internal investigation and then contacted the FBI on Wednesday. Because the case involves potential abuse of police power, Ballard said the case was referred to the federal agency.

All four officers, who were not identified, have been placed on restricted duty.

The officers have between three and 16 years of law enforcement experience, according to the department. They were all assigned to patrol a district that covers downtown Honolulu.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell commended Ballard’s decision to hand the case to the FBI for review.

“Although these officers are presumed innocent, we need an independent agency to investigate exactly what occurred and whether these officers engaged in civil rights abuses,” Caldwell said in a statement. “Chief Ballard has promised to transform the Honolulu Police Department from a warrior mentality to a guardian mentality, and this is an approach to community policing that I wholeheartedly support.”

    “….police officers who are accused of forcing a man to place his mouth on a urinal inside a public restroom…”

    Why didn’t the headline say “kiss urinal” rather than “touch urinal”?

    Yahoo news is trying to downplay their sadistic enjoyment of this abuse of power, and because a lot of people scan headlines until they find something important to read, this story will be by-passed by many.

    “If true, these allegations violate the core values the HPD stands for,” Ballard said. “Our officers are sworn to uphold the right of all persons, and I expect every officer to treat every member of the public fairly and with respect. Personally, I am appalled at the behavior, if it is true, and appropriate action will be taken.”

    Your “Officers” Violate our Bill of Rights on a daily, continual basis, from the same day they are sworn in, and they Pin on their courage and Strap on their balls, they Take an Oath to Support and Defend our “Bill of Rights” and then immediately go out and break that oath….

    So yeah miss dykie, I’m not sure what “Rights” you are referring to in your statement, but it sure ain’t our rights, now is it?
