(H/T to The Daily Kenn):
This one’s pretty cute:
When the brick crashed through her bathroom window and somebody began kicking in her front door, the 19-year-old single mother of two in Milwaukee dialed what are supposed to be the most trustworthy three numbers.
“I called 911 for help,” she later said in court. “I didn’t call 911 to be the victim.”
Within minutes, two police officers responded. One took her 15-year-old brother outside to speak to him. The other cop, Police Officer Ladmarald Cates, gave her boyfriend $10 and told him to go the store and get some water. She told him that he was welcome to chilled water from her refrigerator.
“I only drink bottled water,” Cates said.
Her boyfriend has a pronounced limp and set off with no promise of returning soon. Cates asked to see the broken window and she led him down a narrow hallway to a bathroom in the back. She felt sure that jealous neighbors had attacked her happy home because she dared to defy what seemed surely to be her fate as an inner-city teenage single mom.
She now stood on a floor littered with broken glass and pointed to the brick. The cop she had summoned to protect her instead chose this moment to grab the back of her head by her hair and sodomize her. Then he raped her.
Her revulsion in the aftermath was so visceral that she vomited as she ran outside. The cop’s partner had become concerned when he did not immediately see Cates and called for back-up. Other cops began arriving and saw a woman screaming incoherently about being raped.
Cates appeared and grabbed her by the waist, spinning her around. Her swinging feet may or may not have struck the partner. She was handcuffed and taken in, told at the stationhouse that she was being charged with assaulting a police officer.
The predictive power of race, again. Abuse of power, sex crime, screams “NAMs in charge.” The pro-White commenters at TDB missed the dog-whistle of “inner city single mother” and assumed the victim is White, when she’s probably Black.
Kudos to TDB for printing the ‘boon’s name and photo (after reading the piece all the way through, I’m pretty sure what we’ve got here is an “inner city” journalist reporting rape by “inner city” cops on an “inner city” woman – a real preview to journalism in Idiocracy – but honest is honest).
Question of the day: is there any doubt whatsoever in anyone’s mind that this would be national news if the perp was White? The networks would be all over this for days, at the least. They’d have been all over Andrew “Assassinate 0bama” Adler if he was White, too, but that’s for another post.
