To protect and serve, huh? Oklahoma City police arrested fellow cop Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, yesterday for rape and sexual battery against seven Black women.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty said that an investigation by the sex crimes unit found Holtzclaw assaulted the women while on-duty between February and June of this year, according to KOCO news. A three-year veteran of the force, Holtzclaw stopped women while they were walking in their neighborhoods or during traffic stops; he then searched and threatened them. He forced some of the women to perform oral sex on him, while others were forced to fondle themselves or expose themselves. One victim was raped.

“We kind of anticipate there may be more victims out there because this goes back to February,” said Oklahoma City District Attorney David Prater, as quoted by Michigan Live. Authorities are urging any other potential victims of Holtzclaw to come forward. Keep reading »

Beth Davis Went After The Pervert

Meet Beth Davis of Tulsa, Oklahoma.  She ran by Walmart to run and errand and stopped first in the women’s restroom.  There should found a man, standing in front of the mirror partially clothed, jerking off.  So Davis whipped out her cameraphone and started filming him as he tried to leave the store, while she yelled for someone to stop the man because he’d been masturbating  But Walmart being Walmart, did nothing.  In fact, as Davis told KJRH News, only one person — a vendor — tried to stop the man but was told by an employee not to touch him.

Oklahoma Tornado
"This was my second prayer."

I didn’t sleep at all last night after reading about and seeing the horrific aftermath of the deadly tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma. Such gruesome images and unbelievable destruction. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was affected (if you’re looking for specific ways to help, check out this list). In the midst of all this horror, there are always little bright spots, one of which is this interview with Moore resident Barbara Garcia. Even though her home was completely destroyed, Garcia survived the tornado by hunkering down in her bathroom with her beloved dog, who was tragically ripped out of her arms by the high winds. As Garcia is recounting the story to CBS News, the reporter spots a dog buried in the rubble behind her, which turns out to be — you guessed it! — Garcia’s missing dog. After being dug out and reunited with its owner, the dog seems scared but miraculously unharmed. You’ll definitely need a couple tissues to get through this one. [CBS News]

Monday afternoon a mile-wide tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, a suburb on the outskirts of Oklahoma City. The tornado’s deadly path tore through a hospital and two schools, and while rescue crews still aren’t sure about the exact number of victims, the county medical examiner confirmed that there are at least 24 dead.

As search crews continue to look for any remaining survivors amid the rubble, we wanted to let the people of Moore and its surrounding communities know that we are thinking of them, and want to give you, our readers, the opportunity to help out.

After the jump, a list of charities you can donate to, that will help to rescue, recover and restore the people of Moore. In most cases, due to time, space and administrative costs, these charities are asking for financial, rather than material, donations. Generally, whenever possible, it’s good to donate to local organizations and charities first, as they typically have a better idea of what’s need in their communities and are more invested in recovering and reviving affected areas.
