The last time I mentioned this case it was still on-going. Since then the monster has been sentenced to 263 years behind bars and will be serving them consecutively. Thank you Father God!
However, the scars he left behind on his victims are not so easily healed. The 17-year-old and 50 plus year-old both describe how fear of police and being assaulted again has left them paralyzed. While they are survivors and courageous, they are also hurting in ways I cannot imagine.
I truly hope that monster rots in prison and enjoy his time there, while getting the same treatment he dished out. You can read the article below, but these two comments stuck with me and it makes me glad that someone sees the end game in all of this. I pray that these women receive the support and help that they need in this trying time.
“Benjamin Crump, a prominent civil rights attorney representing several of the women in planned civil litigation against the city, said the convictions and sentence should send a message to the rest of the country that victimization of black women won’t be tolerated.”
“Every one of these women, from the 17-year-old teenager to the 57-year-old grandmother, … they survived a horrific experience,” Crump said. “Hopefully, this is an example for the rest of America to follow, right here in Oklahoma. We stopped a serial rapist with a badge when everyone else had doubt.”
While the past abuse and exploitation of Black woman was ignored, it will no longer be accepted or ignored. I don’t give a flying f**k your race or gender you hurt or endanger Black girls and Black women, we will get you.
