OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.
Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!
Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoBLolqUaNg
Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman? No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?
(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
My name is Charley and I am a 20 year old disabled trans artist. I have been trying my best to save up for a much-needed chest surgery which would majorly improve my quality of life, but being disabled and trans makes it very hard to find work even if I was physically able. I am doing my best to get by every day, but the possibility of affording this surgery at my current time seems nearly unattainable and hopeless. I am hoping that with this campaign, I can finally make this goal a reality, or at least get much closer to affording it!
If even half the people who liked and reblogged this post donated a dollar I’d be over a thousand dollars closer to a life saving surgery. Please spread this, not everyone can donate but reblogging and sharing makes it visible to more and more people who might be able to donate
