An Open Letter To The White Teachers Who Wore NYPD T-Shirts To School, Despite Being Told Not To

An Open Letter To The White Teachers Who Wore NYPD T-Shirts To School, Despite Being Told Not To

The night of the alleged assault, Moreno and his partner were called to the 27-year-old accuser’s apartment after a cab driver called the police because the woman was highly intoxicated and having a difficult time climbing the stairs. The officers helped the woman into her apartment and then took her keys, returning multiple times throughout the night.

“I woke up to being penetrated from behind,” the woman said in a 2011 interview. “I woke up because the action of his penetration was so hard that my head was moving toward the window [at the head of her bed] like it was going to go through it.” Keep reading »
