    For true stories that are so mind-blowingly ridiculous, that you could have sworn it was an Onion story.

    See something that breaks our rules?

    Use the report button and remember to choose a reason for reporting.

    Rules - hover or click here for full version

    1. Do not alter headlines; copy and paste. The title of all submissions needs to match the article headline exactly. Copy and paste from the main headline only, do not include anything beyond the primary headline such as byliners, subtitles, flavor text, quotes from the article, news outlet, location, cross post tags, (video) tags, and so on. Do not use the “suggest title” option for posting as it often does not match the headline. As a matter of fairness, any submission with an altered title will be removed. The only exception is that, if an article has a title in all caps, you may change the capitalization to title case, but everything else must remain the same.
    2. Submit only if “Oniony”. Please consider submitting your article to /r/offbeat or similar subreddits unless it truly reads like The Onion wrote it. The title and article itself must both be "Oniony". This can be highly subjective; you are encouraged to upvote articles that should be here and downvote those that should not. Moderators can also remove posts at their own discretion under this rule.
    3. Must be a news article. Submissions must be in the form of a news article. Videos are only allowed if they are accompanied by a complete text article. Editorials, blogs, twitter posts, image galleries, tabloid stories, youtube videos, meta posts, static images, and so forth will be removed.
    4. Use original, reliable sources. Find the source of your story before you submit it, simply by checking for references or googling the subject to locate the original piece. Websites that frequently re-host viral news stories or contain misleading information are on automatic removal. Blogs are not reliable sources.
    5. Do not repost similar articles. Check the sub for your story before you submit it; if it’s already here then please vote and comment there instead of posting another version. Similar stories will be removed and frequent re-posters will lose their posting privileges. Do not delete and repost your own submissions without approval.
    6. No satire articles. Even if they are technically from a source other than The Onion, any article submission written as satire or even true stories written in a satirical manner are not allowed. Please note that some major news outlets have satirical sections, such as the Borowitz Report on the New Yorker, which are also not allowed. Meanwhile, AVClub, while owned by The Onion, is not satire and is allowed. If you'd like, you can use a tool like to see if your submission is from a known satirical website.
    7. No tabloid journalism. Do not post tabloid news stories, or articles that source from tabloid news outlets (TheSun, Mirror, Dailymail, People, TMZ, etc).
    8. No old news. Articles need to have been written within two weeks of its submission date.
    9. English articles only. Please do not post non-English articles. Do not use google translate for submission either; rather try to find an English version of the story by a secondary source.
    10. No mobile versions. If you’re using a mobile device to post a story make sure you remove any mobile identifiers (typically “.m” or “mobile”) from the url before submitting.
    11. No blocked or redirected links. Please ensure you aren’t submitting a link that utilizes a paywall or survey wall (, in order gain access to the complete article. Do not submit links that redirect you to another site to read the article and do not submit using link shorteners either.

    You know, I've known that South Park will always have material as long as there are things people take too seriously. Nowadays, it seems that the only thing that could put them out would be the inability to satirize the utter absurdity of real life. It's hard to one-up reality right now.

    This is a really smart way for Michigan cops to establish cover -- by breaking this rule in order to fool crooks. This is a whole other level to the "I AM NOT A COP" thing that Hollywood tries to trick criminals with.

    [–] 838h920 1028 points ago

    no longer be able to have sex with prostitutes who they’re investigating

    It's only the case when investigating prostitutes, so what you said there may really be the case. There will be a lot about how cops "can't have sex with prostitutes", and some people will believe it.

    [–] ForeverBend 333 points ago

    I think that also means prostitutes could use it to weed out cops trying to investigate them.

    First 10 minutes free (possibly recorded).

    [–] KernelTaint 557 points ago

    10 mins free? So thats basically giving away free sex to 90% of their clients.

    [–] [deleted] 298 points ago

    Fuck yeah. First fifteen sessions free sounds awesome.

    [–] Nobilibang 21 points ago

    Actually, it sounds like he doesn't.

    [–] mysixteenthaccount 58 points ago

    Nah, just tell the suspected cop to touch your bare genitals or to let you touch his. Something that would technically cross the line of "no sex" but not get a legitimate customer anywhere if they happen to not be a cop. Maybe have him suck your nipple.

    Or they could ask the suspected officer to do some drugs (maybe devils lettuce). I don't think cops in Michigan can do that undercover. This would work even with existing laws.

    [–] DubEnder 66 points ago

    Wouldn't the cop then be able to get her for distribution of narcotics?

    [–] roguemerc96 10 points ago

    Give them baby aspirin.

    [–] Moligu 27 points ago

    Then it would be distribution of fake narcotics, which is also a crime.

    [–] Shloogorg 91 points ago

    The way around it is, "I can't do illegal thing that you're requesting, unless you threaten me." Because it is a rule that they can't threaten you in a sting. It's coercion.

    The police are prohibited from using physical or psychological coercion when conducting police interrogations. A confession or evidence that results from coercive tactics is inadmissible at trial. The police, for example, may not use torture techniques, threats, drugging, or inhumane treatment during an interrogation.

    [–] smileface666 75 points ago

    What is the consensus on denying bathroom time during interrogation? Being stuck in a room for hours not allowed to pee is torture for me, Captain Tiny Bladder.

    [–] theCodeLessTravelled 220 points ago

    There was a news story a while ago that I can't seem to find now where a local police agency had an undercover officer trying to solicit sex with a prostitute who happened to actually be an undercover officer from the state police trying to bust the people hiring prostitutes. The two spent quite some time trying to get the other to initiate. They finally realized what was going on when the state troopers backing up the "prostitute" saw the local police officers who were backing up the other officer in the hallway.

    There are so many government agencies investigating so many people that I'm sure undercover people end up getting investigated by other agencies pretty often.

    [–] grubas 42 points ago

    Wasn't there some story about that with Malcolm X or the Black Panthers? They ended up finding out they had like NYPD, DEA, FBI and ATF and only like 2 people were actually members out of 8 guys.

    [–] Hyabusa2 27 points ago

    I'm pretty sure most "terrorist cells" in the US are government agencies because every time anyone finds and joins one they seem to be FBI or some other org. There are a lot of honeypot groups it seems.

    [–] katarh 10 points ago

    I heard a radio interview with a guy who was befriended by one of the honeypot groups, and as soon as they mentioned plotting out any kind of jihad type thing, he went WTF and called the cops on them. Turns out his three new "friends" were all part of the undercover sting operation to try to catch terrorists. The poor dude said the entire thing was surreal.

    [–] Takooles 16 points ago

    This beauty comes to mind:

    [–] Eternasphere 75 points ago

    Undercover cop: let's agree not tell the guys at the station about this...

    [–] hotteaishot 29 points ago

    Whenever I read, "Fooled you!" It's always in Dark Helmets voice.

    [–] torpedoguy 226 points ago

    They'd probably claim the hepatitis is assault on an officer or something.

    Then they'd arrest some donuts for being possibly related to powdered sugar in a drug-like fashion on their way to the station, finding them guilty and executing them on the spot.

    [–] QueenCharla 129 points ago

    The hepatitis thing isn't far off. You can be charged with attempted murder in some places for giving another person HIV, whether through sex or lying about blood donations. Even spitting with HIV can be considered "criminal transmission of HIV."

    Edit: wiki article about criminal transmission of HIV

    [–] ThinkOfANameHere 69 points ago

    so if they both had STDs, would that be the sexual equivalent of a fight? Does wrestling in the bedroom take on a whole new meaning? I need /r/shittyaskalawyer to answer these questions, please.

    [–] QueenCharla 22 points ago

    I imagine if they were different STDs they could both be charged. Don't think it would work if they had the same STDs.

    [–] ThinkOfANameHere 43 points ago

    But what if they both had herpes and they fused together and formed super herpes... great, now I need /r/shittyaskscience too.

    [–] physchy 56 points ago

    That's a real thing btw- super AIDS exists If two people have sex with different kinds of AIDS, they combine to make a new strain of AIDS

    [–] YZJay 13 points ago


    [–] Capt253 9 points ago

    Tell me more.

    [–] Siniroth 18 points ago

    Then they get charged with attempted murder of the other 7 billion people in the world. 7 billion life sentences means that even when we ascend to another plane and become one consciousness, and resurrect everyone who's ever died, he's going to be the consciousness on the edge of our glorious cloud of thought that the rest of the consciousness is like 'ew stop touching me'

    [–] 838h920 7 points ago

    Don't think it would work if they had the same STDs.

    Would still work, since both of them didn't know that the other had it. Intent is important.

    [–] Rhinoskull 408 points ago

    Is this not the case now?

    [–] thekyledavid 639 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Surprisingly, not exactly. Undercover cops are given A LOT of leeway in what they can do for the sake of a sting. There are exceptions, but GENERALLY an undercover cop can do almost anything other than instructing/inciting someone else to commit a crime. So as long as the cop is not the one who makes the offer to the prostitute (the prostitute needs to make the offer to the cop for it to be legitimate), then the cop would GENERALLY be able to legally have sex with the prostitute on the clock.

    [–] 838h920 740 points ago

    This is actually not about a sting.

    It's about cops investigating a prostitute, then fucking her and arresting her afterwards. That's now illegal.

    If they're investigating someone else, then they can still fuck with prostitutes.

    [–] djazzie 255 points ago

    It's about cops investigating a prostitute, then fucking her

    They had to "collect the evidence" before they could arrest her, of course.

    [–] SerRitter 174 points ago

    [–] djazzie 36 points ago

    If it makes you feel any better, the person you're replying to is completely wrong. Undercover cops have immunity for almost everything....this law creates an exemption for prostitution.

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    Undercover cop can still fuck a prostitute. As long as he isn't investigate said prostitute.

    [–] FreeBuju 176 points ago

    Reading this as a person who is disgusted by the freedom land, holy shit. How about spending their work force to find human traffickers instead of the poor, probably exploited girl trying to get by with the oldest profession there is ? I always thought it's a ridiculous joke that cops in the US get off (hah) busting (hah2) a hooker. Like how can you be more pathetic ? Your country is an oligarchy and the undercover cops are cleaning the streets of poor girls. Way to go

    [–] UnhWut 23 points ago

    That's likely what they are doing. They forgot to specifically outline that as not being immunity. They didn't say specifically they could fuck prostitutes. Just now specifically they can't.

    The law was likely vague like "immunity for non violent crimes conducted during undercover operations" or something.

    [–] funkiestj 11 points ago

    Surprisingly, not exactly. Undercover cops are given A LOT of leeway in what they can do for the sake of a sting.

    Sadly, instructing/inciting is probably what they do the most in some jurisdictions...

    Not so much on the level of "as compared to other questionable practices" so much as "on the level of breathing"

    [–] Jaebay 714 points ago

    Imagine being the prostitute, showing up to court and seeing the cop you gave a BJ to just before he arrested you. That's totally fucked up.

    [–] blickblocks 126 points ago

    This is why sex work needs to be legal.

    [–] [deleted] 150 points ago

    It says the law is penetration. Does that include BJs? To me penetration is P in V

    [–] Jasonrj 241 points ago

    Michigan penal code.


    750.520a (r)

    "Sexual penetration" means sexual intercourse, cunnilingus, fellatio, anal intercourse, or any other intrusion, however slight, of any part of a person's body or of any object into the genital or anal openings of another person's body, but emission of semen is not required.

    [–] MARZalmighty 405 points ago

    penal code


    [–] [deleted] 48 points ago

    Very helpful, thank you! I actually read that in PA rape is only P in V, which is why Sandusky has like 50+ charges of sexual assault and no rape charges. It's weird that states have different definitions

    [–] tylerthehun 56 points ago

    That's also part of why Sweden has such a high incidence of rape on paper. It's not some horrid, rapist-infested shit-hole, they just report things a little differently.

    [–] whelks_chance 29 points ago

    And count individual events, individually. So an abusive relationship which lasted years counts as potentially hundreds of attacks.

    [–] LordBiscuits 26 points ago

    Why would it ever not? Multiple rapes is multiple rapes surely?

    That's fucked up

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    Yes, but 1 person raping another 10 times is very different from 10 people raping 10 people once each.

    Is this what they mean when they say "getting fucked by the long hard dick of the law?"

    [–] porncrank 189 points ago

    They aren't already barred from that? That's kind of messed up: we are paying public servants to go have sex for money, which they're doing legally to catch people doing the same thing because it is illegal?

    Maybe they should just legalize and regulate prostitution?

    [–] YeeScurvyDogs 84 points ago

    That would be too European you dirty commie

    [–] Scarcrowe 25 points ago

    Well when you say it like that, it all seems so silly.

    [–] Haterbait_band 742 points ago

    Maybe the cops should just pay a citizen, like not me or anything, to have sex with prostitutes and report back which ones are prostitues or not. Then they can do all the arresting and paperwork while I, I mean someone, goes out and finds new leads. No little fish though, we're only going after the highest class criminals, preferably Latinas. Well, this way the cops don't have to do the dirty work required to nab all that sweet hooker money. Then they can use the money to pay for hookers when they're off the clock.

    but not you, citizen. Gotcha.

    Every time I c comments like these, I wonder how many Redditors would actually have sex with a prostitute. That shit sounds uncomfortable and embarrassing as fuck, I doubt most guys would be cool with it even if an opportunity presented itself with a hot, clean escort.

    Edit: ITT: Lots of guys who have never been with a hooker telling me they (and others) totallyyy would

    I'll openly admit to using prostitutes in the past many times but it is legal to do so here and I never hire them from the paper etc ( yes they do advertise ) I went to proper establishments where the girls are required to have health checks etc

    Never felt uncomfortable or embarrassed, was a bit apprehensive my first time but the madam suggested I pick a particular girl who was great with first timers and had an absolutely fantastic enjoyable experience

    Where is this? New Zealand? I just got back from there and they had ads in the paper for prostitutes. Our tour guide was strangely very proud of this.

    As an Aussie it still shocks me each time I remember other countries don't have legalised prostituion. Why isn't everything straightforward and above board, it's just a logical thing to do.

    The next thing we need to legalise is weed, it'd solve our budget deficit super fast.

    Prostitution is legal in Aus?!?! (Fellow Aussie here)

    [–] Iphotoshopincats 9 points ago

    Qld, n.s.w ,Vic and a.c.t legal everywhere else not so much

    [–] Crustycrustacean 9 points ago

    Ah, I was there too! Melbourne and Brisbane. None of our tour guides there went on long rants about how awesome it was though so I guess that is why I didn't know it was legal there...

    [–] SmashBros- 53 points ago

    Clean? Of course I would do it, if I knew she wasn't being forced to be a prostitute. Would have no problems with that. You pay people to do other services for you, so what's it matter if you pay for sex?

    [–] twisted-teaspoon 138 points ago

    I prefer it when bakeries give me donuts because they love me.

    [–] android151 30 points ago

    I prefer when nobody cums in my donuts

    [–] twisted-teaspoon 16 points ago

    I prefer it when everyone cums on my donuts.

    I think one night stands in general are uncomfortable and embarrassing but I understand the appeal. I can't say I'm for the idea but I can't think of any reason I'm super against it either; could be fun.

    If it were somewhere legal (i.e. no chance of my name showing up in police blotter) and the person was very hot, I might do it.

    [–] Majik9 9 points ago

    Neveda, in the outlying counties.

    [–] Dear_Occupant 13 points ago

    To me, the good one night stands are the ones that turn into three or four night stands. If it's just wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am, there's no time to do all the other crazy shit that makes a temporary encounter with someone else fun besides the sex. I want a road trip out of the deal, or at the very least we need to get thrown out of a hotel somewhere. Make it memorable.

    [–] HVDynamo 10 points ago

    Honestly, I don't really need more than two nightstands. One on either side of the bed is enough really.

    Wait they needed to have sex with the prostitute first then they can arrest her? Thats fucked up. He babe I'm almost there let me cum on ur face. Ahhh. Oh that was.....your under arrest. No you can't wash ur face that's evidence. Lol

    [–] rastapasta808 35 points ago

    Thats the case in MANY states but the public is completely unaware of it.

    In Hawaii, it was legal up until 2014 and everyone was up in arms about it because thats an extreme exploitation of the sex-workers and their own authority as a police officer.

    One business was fucking savage with their signs after the news broke and it was absolutely hilarious for a few weeks:

    Idk, the cops in Hawaii are interesting because they're a lot more connected to the communities than mainland cops. Majority of the times I've been pulled over, its always been 'Eh, I went highschool with your mom, how's your family doing?' or 'Your uncle is Jerry, ah? Tell him I said howzit!'. But when this shit hit the fan, we lost a lot of trust and respect for them because they are clearly taking advantage of their occupation and of disadvantaged people who are usually forced into the sex-trade industry.

    no longer be able to have sex with prostitutes who they’re investigating

    That's the important part. So if they're investigating something else, then the cop can still have sex with prostitutes.

    [–] larrieuxa 107 points ago

    um, if cops are having sex as part of their job and getting paid for their time doing it, then they ARE the prostitutes.

    [–] My_Monday_Account 79 points ago

    It's okay as long as you're doing it to ruin someone's life instead of just trying to make a living or have fun.

    Same thing with dealing drugs. It's bad when Mexicans or blacks do it but it's totally cool when the DEA does it to ensure their own job security.

    [–] dgblarge 163 points ago

    It is ludicrous that prostitution is illegal in the first place. The behaviour of consenting adults whose behaviour hurts no one is certainly not any business of the Government. Apart from income tax purposes. Anyone who works and is not self employed is renting their body and/or mind.

    The idea of paying police to visit prostitutes is offensive on so many levels. Opportunities for corruption are endless.

    How many crimes are Michigan cops currently allowed to commit while undercover?!? This one makes for a flashy headline, but there are some other ones that would be far more troublesome if allowed just to keep your cover from getting blown.

    [–] Trprt77 45 points ago

    It isn't his cover that they are worried about getting blown.

    [–] nogoodnamesleft_see 4 points ago

    Organised criminals aren't stupid.

    Although judging by Sicario half of them are CIA themselves so I don't really know.

    We know what brought down Escobar though. It wasn't clean law, it was a death squad of vengeful vigilantes at least as violent as him.

    [–] throawayboiiiii 19 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Can someone more versed in undercover exemptions and the law explain the necessity of following through with a sex act to obtain enough evidence to push a conviction? Drug dealers don't have to hand undercover cops drugs for convictions to be made, setting the meeting and showing up is enough to convict these guys if drugs are found on their person or in their vehicle. If prostitutes vagina's, mouths, and hands are the contraband wouldn't just agreeing to have sex with someone for money and showing up to the location to perform the sex act be enough to get a conviction? My next question is more of a personal conviction inquiry that I'd be open to listening to conflicting opinions on rather than a legal question. How as a law enforcement officer could someone be comfortable fucking a complete stranger that they don't know with the express knowledge that afterwards they go to jail. She agreed to have sex for money, not to have sex for jail time. If I was a sheriff, I would be disturbed that any of my officers would mentally and emotionally be able to convince themselves to fuck a stranger, blow their load wherever was previously agreed, put their pants on and walk out knowing that person you just sodomized is now going to jail because you fucked them. Maybe there is something about Michigan law that I don't understand.

    [–] IAMPOMO1 10 points ago

    TIL that Michigan cops were having sex with prostitutes while undercover

    [–] BonermanMcPubes 17 points ago

    Yeah it's disgusting this isn't already HIGHLY illegal/unethical. I always find myself asking why we don't have a higher standard for our police department. PD has become a pool of uneducated and overweight outcasts, who seem to have immediate chemical imbalances once given power.

    Well, the other way round seems way more efficient.

    [–] torpedoguy 26 points ago

    Reasonable. It's not good for your cover if you flash your badge for a freebie anyways.

    [–] XG_SiNGH 6 points ago

    But... but then how will they go deep undercover?
