Serial Rapist Daniel Holtzclaw has been found GUILTY.

Daniel Holtzclaw was an Oklahoma cop who raped and sexual assaulted 13 women... Black women. Many of them didn't speak up because they didn't think anyone would listen to them. One woman said that she's Black, so she knew no one would care.

Many of us watched in fear as the case came together, especially when the court chose an all White jury. I have to admit, like the hopeless woman, I thought the same thing. Black women in these type of cases never win and usually get blamed for everything.

But this time, she and I was wrong (Thank somebody's God). Daniel was found guilty of 18 counts of rape - first and second degree, which includes burglary, stalking, indecent exposure, sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy. Daniel face up to 263 years in prison. Sentencing will take place next month.

I imagine that, in those moments that the verdicts were read, he felt a little bit of the same kind of terror and horror and fright, that his victims felt.
And it's still not enough.
Lock him up. Throw away the key.

Interesting how you made an assumption about that jury based on race.
