Description

A lesbian couple was arrested in Hawaii last year for kissing in a store. They sued the city of Honolulu and won $80,000. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "Honolulu has agreed to pay $80,000 to settle a lawsuit from two gay women who allege a police officer wrongfully arrested them after seeing them kissing in a grocery store. Details of the settlement were announced Friday in federal court in Honolulu. It is still subject to city council approval. The council is expected to consider the settlement at a 6 July meeting, said Nicolette Winter, a Honolulu deputy corporation counsel. Courtney Wilson and Taylor Guerrero were visiting Hawaii from Los Angeles last year when, according to the their lawsuit, they were harassed and arrested because the officer didn’t like their public displays of affection in a Foodland store on Oahu’s North Shore. They were walking through the aisles holding hands and at one point hugged and kissed, the lawsuit said. Officer Bobby Harrison, who was shopping in uniform, “observed their consensual romantic contact and, in a loud voice, ordered plaintiffs to stop and ‘take it somewhere else’.”* The women complied and continued shopping, the lawsuit said. When Harrison again saw them being affectionate with each other, he threatened to have them thrown out of the store.”* Read more here: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/21/lesbian-couple-hawaii-settlement-kissing-arrest Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
