NYC cops acquitted of rape

Two NYC police officers illegally entered the apartment of a drunk woman, and one of them admitted getting into bed with her and wearing a condom. Today they were acquitted of rape, but convicted on minor charges related to police misconduct. One of the two said it was just a "cuddle." If you'd like to not have on-duty police officers "cuddle" you when drunk, remember to get so plastered as to be unconscious by the time the cuddle condom comes out: the NYT reports that "Defense lawyers pointed to surveillance footage of the woman walking on her own" as evidence she could not have been drunk enough to be unable to consent to sex. Update: There will be a rally to protest the trial's outcome. [The Awl]
