I just don't think that it would have ended in an arrest if the concerned taxpayer were a female.
Perhaps if she were also asking for cash, because its prostitution.
But its hard to tell in this case if the problem was that Curtis Lee was asking for sex or whether he was demanding that the cops lose their pensions.
I know you were trying to give the class a chance to chime in with the right answer, but sometimes you just have to spell it out.

Hot young lady offers a "favor" to a cop? Favor granted, no one gets shot (other than figuratively). (How often do cops target young hotties for speeding "violations"? )

In fact, this reeks of entrapment and character assassination. premeditated.
