“An investigation has been launched into a police officer in Hawaii who allegedly arrested a lesbian couple for kissing in public.
Courtney Wilson and Taylor Guerrero are a Los Angeles couple who were vacationing in Honolulu in March when they were confronted by off-duty Officer Bobby Harrison in a Foodland supermarket. According to a federal lawsuit that the pair has filed in Hawaii's US District Court, they were holding hands while shopping and at one point hugged and kissed when Harrison "observed their consensual romantic contact and, in a loud voice, ordered plaintiffs to stop and 'take it somewhere else.'"
When they made it to check-out, Harrison confronted them again after witnessing similar consensual contact.
"He said, 'You girls don't know how to act. You don't know the difference between a motel and a grocery store,'" Guerrero said.”
