white Oklahoma City cop Daniel Holtzclaw accused of raping multiple black women, gets all white jury

Many women reported that he forced them into his squad car and drove them to strange places, fields, empty lots, driveways. The GPS data backed up each claim. Other women reported that he insisted on taking them to their home and actually raped them inside of their home. Yet more women reported that Daniel Holtzclaw came back to their homes on multiple occasions to assault and intimidate them. GPS data obtained from his vehicle backed up those claims as well.

Holtzclaw has been charged with 36 crimes including first-degree rape, sexual assault, indecent exposure, stalking, burglary and more.

One of the women who have accused former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw of sexual assault is pictured in silhouette from February.
On Tuesday, the final jury was selected and many in the community where the victims come from hoped that it would have some degree of diversity on it. Unsurprisingly it did not.

Every eligible African-American juror was removed from consideration and the final jury selection was composed of eight white men and four white women. Not one black woman even made it into the final larger pool of jurors. Three black men made it into that pool, but were each removed. Not even the alternate jurors were black.

1. Coleslaw stops 57 year old driver and puts his penis in her mouth

 

The woman — identified in court documents as J.L. and in local media reports as a 57-year-old grandmother — said she was driving home after playing dominos with a friend, according to detective Kim Davis, who recounted J.L.’s story at length during a hearing at the Oklahoma County Courthouse.

When Officer Holtzclaw approached J.L.’s car, she couldn’t roll down her broken driver’s side window, Davis said. So Holtzclaw directed her to the rear passenger side seat of his patrol car. He asked if she had been drinking — he had noticed a Styrofoam cup in her front seat. She said no, according to Davis, and that the drink was Kool-Aid. He continued questioning her, and she suggested he go taste it. He walked over to her car, but J.L. couldn’t see what he was doing. When he came back, Holtzclaw asked if J.L. had anything else on her.

“If you have something on you and you tell me now, then I won’t take you to jail,” he allegedly told J.L., according to Davis. “But if you don’t tell me about it now, and I find something, then I’m gonna take you to jail.” J.L. said no, again. She was still sitting in his patrol car.

“He opens the door and he tells her, ‘I’ve got to check you,’” Davis said. “And he says, ‘Lift your shirt.’”

She lifted her shirt to her stomach, and Davis motioned. “He goes, ‘I can’t see that. There might be something in your bra.’ And so she grabs the bottom of her bra, she said, and just shakes it … And he goes, ‘Nope, that’s not good enough.’”
J.L. lifted her shirt and bra, Davis said, and Holtzclaw shined his flashlight on her exposed breasts.

“She said about that time, she noticed that he started playing with his penis,” Davis said. “Then he tells her to stand up … and he says, ‘Pull down your pants.’”
J.L. lowered her pants but left her underwear up, and Holtzclaw turned his flashlight to her “vaginal area,” Davis said. Holtzclaw then told J.L. to sit back down. She planted her feet on the concrete, sitting sideways in his patrol car.
When J.L. looked up, Davis said, Holtzclaw’s penis was in her face.

“She started begging him, ‘Please don’t do this. You’re not supposed to do this.’ … She kept thinking in her mind, OK, this is a police officer, and if he’s gonna do this, he’s gonna kill me. And I’m not gonna make it out of this alive …”
“And he put it in her mouth, and she pulled away. And she said, ‘Please, please don’t do this.’ And he put it back in her mouth. And she said for about 10 seconds. Then he pulled it out and stopped, and he told her, ‘I’m gonna follow you home.’”

J.L. went back to her car, Davis said. She pulled into what she thought was a driveway, then did a U-turn. Holtzclaw pulled his car around her and unexpectedly took off.

At home, J.L. and her daughter did what middle-class people in Oklahoma City do when they’ve been the victim of crimes: called the local police station. When no one answered, according to Davis, they went to report the alleged assault in person.

2. To steal an idea from John Grisham...



... how would society react if a black man, accused of raping many white women, found himself facing a jury of 12 black men. Imagine the outrage. How could our courts let such a "travesty" occur.

It would run as "breaking news" every 30 seconds on Faux and "society" would demand that he be tried by a just of 12 white women.

White privilege at it's finest on display in Oklahoma.

4. How does the prosecutor let something like this happen?

6. They may not have "let" it happen

 

They may have made it happen by striking any minority jurors. It's illegal, but hard to prove when prosecutors do so.

I'd like to believe that even an all white jury would find this guy guilty (all of the publicly available evidence like his gps data says he's guilty) barring some sort of as of yet unknown evidence.

7. Prosecutors and police officers are too cozy

Remember the prosecutor in the Darren Wilson grand jury? I don't know how seriously they prosecute police officers.

5. People should be looking at the DA.

Defense and prosecution both pick the jury. This is also a good reason to not skip out on jury duty. I'd like to see the actual original jury pool.
