The cop is accused of assaulting 8 women while on patrol.


Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure.

Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Holtzclaw’s defense attorney, R. Scott Adams, said Friday that his client “denies he ever did anything inappropriate with anyone.” He declined further comment.[su_sky_ad]

    Thirty years to LIFE for “Mr Macho Man”…

      If he’s tried and convicted, wouldn’t they have to put him in the prison version of witness protection? If the cons found out he’s a cop, he becomes someone’s bitch.

        He deserves that “bitch” tag!

        • Larry Schmitt August 30th, 2014 at 11:21 am

          If he’s guilty. Don’t jump the gun.

          ” ” that’s going to be his name going forward…

        Sorry but I don’t feel sorry for him at all. Put him in the general population and see how much of a “man” he really is…

        • Larry Schmitt August 30th, 2014 at 11:50 am

          I didn’t say I felt sorry for him. If he’s guilty, he deserves whatever he gets.

      • Spirit of America August 30th, 2014 at 11:58 am

        If he’s guilty, in all honesty, in my view, that would be fine. He’s missing something that makes just a male sapiens into a human man.

    What does his being a “former stand out football player” have to do with anything? For all we know he may have been raping and sodomizing back then as well. This didn’t start when he became a cop.

    • mfr4 August 30th, 2014 at 1:10 pm

      It doesn’t mean anything but it does emphasize that he’s a big strong guy and can probably force and intimidate most women into doing what he wants. Especially as a cop. What a prick (even if it is very small).

    • tiredoftea August 30th, 2014 at 1:17 pm

      It’s only relevant to show him as a guy who has long been immersed in a culture of violence and degradation towards women. His purported actions prove that he’s been well trained.

    What part of “to protect and to serve” do these lawless, rogue cops not understand?

    • Cosmic_Surfer August 30th, 2014 at 2:04 pm

      I believe you answered your own question with the use of “rogue”

    Its Oklahoma after all
