Daniel Holtzclaw, a white policeman, raping disadvantaged black criminal women. The perfect PC narrative. This stacks all odds against him. The usual anti-racist race mongers
Daniel Ken Holtzclaw (born December 10, 1986) is a former Oklahoma City Police Department patrol officer who was convicted in December 2015 of multiple counts of rape, sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy, and other charges.
Of the thirteen women whom Holtzclaw assaulted, several had criminal histories such as drug arrests; all of the women were black. According to the police investigators, Holtzclaw used his position as an officer to run background checks to find information that could be used to coerce sex. During the trial, the defense questioned the victims’ credibility during cross-examination, bringing up their criminal records. However, the prosecution argued that victims were deliberately chosen by Holtzclaw for this very reason.
Holtzclaw pleaded not guilty to all charges. On December 10, 2015, an all-white jury convicted him on 18 of 36 charges, and on January 21, 2016, he was sentenced to 263 years in prison. [Wikipedia]
36 charges of rape, that must be true. Backed by DNA evidence. One DNA evidence in one case caused the jury to lend credence to all other cases. Who would defend such a slime bag, he must be guilty. Dozens of women can not lie.
Actually, multiple unproven uncorroborated accusations can all be wrong. Add to that jury intimidation, jury misinformation, shoddy falsely explained DNA evidence.
According to Michelle Malkin, police hunted for accusers, and picked especially drug addicts, prostitutes and convicted felons. Investigators strongly suggested to potential victims what the crime was, forgave blatant errors like "victims" describing tall Caucasian Holtzclaw as short and black. Witnesses were still believed after being found blatantly lying. They did not tell the jury that at least one of the witness was convicted of perjury, that many witness stories were so outlandish and blatantly false that they had to be dropped. While Wikipedia claims that feminists and race activists were not active, Michelle Malkin shows photos of Black Panther activists in full military garb inside the court room and says Jury was exposed to screams "give him life" from street protesters.
