Cop Accused Of Raping 7 Black Women Finds Support, Donations On Social Media
Social media sites Facebook and Twitter as well as a GoFundMe page have been created in support of Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, the Oklahoma City police officer and former Eastern Michigan University football player accused of sexually assaulting seven black women. So far, $7,390 has been raised on his behalf on GoFundMe.com.
[su_center_ad]Holtzclaw allegedly committed several sex crimes while serving as an on-duty officer in an Oklahoma City neighborhood.
Charges expected to be filed later this week include first-degree rape, rape by instrumentation, three counts of forcible oral sodomy, two counts of sexual battery and two counts of indecent exposure. His alleged victims are seven black women ranging in age from 34 to 58, MLive reports.
Raw Story reports, “Friends and family of the three-year veteran of the Oklahoma City Police Department have created a Facebook page called “Justice for Daniel Holtzclaw.” They insist the criminal allegations against him are false, and have been using the page to try to sell shirts that read, “Free the Claw” and “#JusticeForDanielHoltzclaw.”
The Facebook page has garnered 551 ‘likes.’ Fundraisers for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Missouri police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, brought in $500,000. Money also came pouring in for George Zimmerman after he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
