These are just the cases reported. It is unknown if there are other cases, and if there are, how many. And there is no way to tell from just a one month snapshot, whether this is consistent, or that this is average. But, the problem here is just like the “missing” data on Police shootings, which cover up the fact that Police are shooting and killing nearly 1,000 people  year. Most of which are probably justified – but some which we know are not. So somewhere, at some time, the decision was made to sweep all of this under the rug, allowing the miscreants if not anonymity, then escape from Justice.

Hundreds Of Cops Kicked Off Force For Committing Sex Crimes

The number is unquestionably an undercount because it represents only those officers whose licenses to work in law enforcement were revoked, and not all states take such action.

Flashing lights pierced the black of night, and the big white letters made clear it was the police. The woman pulled over was a daycare worker in her 50s headed home after playing dominoes with friends. She felt she had nothing to hide, so when the Oklahoma City officer accused her of erratic driving, she did as directed.

She would later tell a judge she was splayed outside the patrol car for a pat-down, made to lift her shirt to prove she wasn’t hiding anything, then to pull down her pants when the officer still wasn’t convinced. He shined his flashlight between her legs, she said, then ordered her to sit in the squad car and face him as he towered above. His gun in sight, she said she pleaded “No, sir” as he unzipped his fly and exposed himself with a hurried directive.

“Come on,” the woman, identified in police reports as J.L., said she was told before she began giving him oral sex. “I don’t have all night.”

The accusations are undoubtedly jolting, and yet they reflect a betrayal of the badge that has been repeated time and again across the country.

In a yearlong investigation of sexual misconduct by U.S. law enforcement, The Associated Press uncovered about 1,000 officers who lost their badges in a six-year period for rape, sodomy and other sexual assault; sex crimes that included possession of child pornography; or sexual misconduct such as propositioning citizens or having consensual but prohibited on-duty intercourse.

The number is unquestionably an undercount because it represents only those officers whose licenses to work in law enforcement were revoked, and not all states take such action. California and New York – with several of the nation’s largest law enforcement agencies – offered no records because they have no statewide system to decertify officers for misconduct. And even among states that provided records, some reported no officers removed for sexual misdeeds even though cases were identified via news stories or court records.

“It’s happening probably in every law enforcement agency across the country,” said Chief Bernadette DiPino of the Sarasota Police Department in Florida, who helped study the problem for the International Association of Chiefs of Police. “It’s so underreported and people are scared that if they call and complain about a police officer, they think every other police officer is going to be then out to get them.”

Even as cases around the country have sparked a national conversation about excessive force by police, sexual misconduct by officers has largely escaped widespread notice due to a patchwork of laws, piecemeal reporting and victims frequently reluctant to come forward because of their vulnerabilities – they often are young, poor, struggling with addiction or plagued by their own checkered pasts.

In interviews, lawyers and even police chiefs told the AP that some departments also stay quiet about improprieties to limit liability, allowing bad officers to quietly resign, keep their certification and sometimes jump to other jobs.

The officers involved in such wrongdoing represent a tiny fraction of the hundreds of thousands whose jobs are to serve and protect. But their actions have an outsized impact – miring departments in litigation that leads to costly settlements, crippling relationships with an already wary public and scarring victims with a special brand of fear.

“My God,” J.L. said she thought as she eyed the officer’s holstered gun, “he’s going to kill me.”

The AP does not name alleged victims of sexual assault without their consent, and J.L. declined to be interviewed. She was let go after the traffic stop without any charges. She reported her accusations immediately, but it was months before the investigation was done and the breadth of the allegations known.

She is one of 13 women who say they were victimized by the officer, a former college football standout named Daniel Holtzclaw. The fired cop, 28, has pleaded not guilty to a host of charges, and his family posted online that “the truth of his innocence will be shown in court.” Each of his accusers is expected to testify in the trial that begins Monday, including one who was 17 when she said the officer pulled down her pink cotton shorts and raped her on her mother’s front porch….Read the Rest Here Which has quite a bit more to the story

Damon Wayans Steps in It…Big Time

Not sure why Wayans wanted to go there…Talk about a “career limiting” conversation.

Damon Wayans Defends Bill Cosby, Calls Accusers ‘Un-Rapeable’

The actor also called the women who’ve come forward “b**ches.”

Damon Wayans is the latest celebrity to jump to the defense of Bill Cosby.

The actor appeared on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Friday, where he said that he doesn’t think Cosby is a rapist. Wayans went on to explain his theory about the 51 women who’ve come forward with their stories of being drugged or sexually assaulted by the comedian.

First, he provided a little bit of advice.

“Tell the truth. If I was him, I would divorce my wife — wink, wink — give her all my money, and then I would go to a deposition. I’d light one of them three-hour cigars, I’d have me some wine and maybe a Quaalude. And I would just go off,” he said.

“I don’t believe that he was raping, I think he was in relationships with all of them,” Wayans continued. “And then he was like, ‘You know what, it’s ’78. It don’t work no more. I can’t get it up for any of y’all. Bye, bitches. And now they’re like, ‘Oh really? Rape!’”

Wayans also questioned why the accusers waited so long to come forward, but co-host Angela Yee was quick to point out that some women came out with their claims decades ago.

“But if you listen to them talk, they go, ‘Well, the first time…’ The first time? Bitch, how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying,” Wayans responded. “And some of them, really, is un-rapeable. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!’”

Attempting to make his words sound less offensive, Wayans then added that his “heart goes out” to the women who were actually assaulted, insinuating that not all the women who’ve come forward are telling the truth.

“For anybody who was raped by Bill Cosby, I’m sorry and I hope you get justice,” he said, only to then call out “all the other bitches” who just didn’t take responsibility for their actions.

Sheriff Blames Police KIlling on “National Rhetoric”

Or “Not wanting to jump to conclusions”, this Sheriff and Prosecutor certainly lay out a lot of “conclusions” not yet borne out by evidence. The assertion that this was about “anti-cop rhetoric” and BlackLivesMatter being the most egregious. As the shooter has not been identified, much less apprehended, we have no idea what motivated him. The fact the Police Department is having a hard time getting witnesses to step up would seem to indicate a disconnect between the Police and the community.

Sheriff links ‘national rhetoric’ to killing of deputy in Houston

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman described the killing of a deputy sheriff at a gas station as a “cold-blooded assassination” and angrily condemned the “very dangerous national rhetoric” about police officers that he said was out of control.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was fatally shot late Friday while filling his patrol car in northwest Harris County.

The suspect, whose image was caught on surveillance video, approached Goforth from behind and shot him several times in the back. He continued to fire even after the officer had fallen to the ground.

The suspect is shown in photos as a dark-skinned male wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts and apparently driving a red or maroon-colored Ford pickup.

Rickman said an intense manhunt was underway and that officers were speaking to several people in connection with the shooting, but that no arrest had been made yet.

Hickman said the killing was unprovoked and that Goforth was apparently singled out only because he was wearing the uniform of a law enforcement officer. The sheriff made it clear he felt the shooting was tied to a national backlash over several recent killings of unarmed black people by police officers.

“When rhetoric ramps up to the point where cold-blooded assassination has happened, this rhetoric has gotten out of control,” he said. “We heard ‘black lives matter.’ All lives matter. Cops’ lives matter too, so why don’t we drop the qualifier and say all lives matter and take that to the bank.”

“Black Lives Matter” is the phrase of a national activist group aimed at addressing the shootings by police officers.

His remarks echoed comments in the same new conference by Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, who said the criticism of police had gotten out of hand.

“It is time for the silent majority in this country to support law enforcement,” she told reporters at the news conference. “There are a few bad apples in every profession, that does not mean there should be open warfare on law enforcement.”

Earlier, sheriff’s office spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland said officials were speaking with a person of interest in connection with the shooting and had obtained a search warrant for the person’s home.

Perhaps the Sheriff’s rhetoric might be based on the publicity involving his department and this DWB stop…

And this one…

Which apparently wasn’t the first Harris County Law Enforcement Officer to be accused, indicted, or convicted of rape. Just a few weeks ago, Harris County Deputies strip searched a woman by the side of the road.

This country appears to have some serious and deep problems…The current Chief being one. It doesn’t seem impossible that the “hundreds of women” raped or coerced into sex by Law Enforcement in the county might just be the cause of the current problems.

Jill Scott Drops Cosby Like a Hot Potato

Jill Scott had been one of Bill Cosby’s biggest defenders along with Whoopi Goldberg. Yesterdays revelation that Cosby admitted in a Court Deposition buying drugs to give to women so he could have sex with them blew all of that away. There is now no doubt left as to Bill Cosby’s guilt, which is a true tragedy because of the many things he has accomplished.

Bill Cosby Admitted To Drugging Women In 2005 Deposition

Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 that he secured quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and other people, according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

Cosby’s lawyers insisted that two of the accusers knew they were taking quaaludes from the comedian, according to the unsealed documents.

Nevertheless, attorneys for some of the numerous women suing Cosby seized on the testimony as powerful corroboration of what they have been saying all along: that he drugged and raped women.

The AP had gone to court to compel the release of a deposition in a sexual-abuse case filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, the first of a cascade of lawsuits against him that have severely damaged his good-guy image.

Cosby’s lawyers had objected to the release of the material, arguing it would embarrass him. Ultimately, a judge unsealed just a small portion of the deposition.

“The stark contrast between Bill Cosby, the public moralist and Bill Cosby, the subject of serious allegations concerning improper (and perhaps criminal) conduct is a matter as to which the AP — and by extension the public — has a significant interest,” U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno wrote.

Cosby, with his oft-espoused views on topics including childrearing, family life, education and crime, “has voluntarily narrowed the zone of privacy that he is entitled to claim,” the judge wrote.

As Shorty Long said in “Here Comes the Judge”… “Man Guilty!”

Jill Scott no longer supports Bill Cosby, ‘completely disgusted’

Singer Jill Scott, who defended Bill Cosby despite countless allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted women, says she no longer stands by the comedian.

On Monday, Scott tweeted that she defended Cosby because there was no concrete evidence against him. She said after reading newly released court documents, she can no longer support the comedian.

“About Bill Cosby. Sadly his testimony offers proof of terrible deeds, which is all I have ever required believing the accusations,” Scott said in a tweet.

Don Lemon Gets Crude With Cosby Accuser

Wow! I can’t believe he asked her that!

Methinks Lemon needs some time-off to come to grips with the real world where folks under the stress of the moment don’t always make perfect decisions…

And perhaps in her case – wound up beaten and abused, as well as raped.

Don Lemon Asks Bill Cosby Accuser Why She Didn’t Bite His Penis To Stop Her Rape

CNN’s Don Lemon is no stranger to tense and uncomfortable interviews, but a conversation with Bill Cosby’s latest rape accuser Tuesday night took a particularly shocking turn for the worse.

Speaking with Joan Tarshis, a woman who recently accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her 45 years ago, the CNN host asked his guest why she didn’t use her teeth as “a weapon” while being forced to perform oral sex on the comedian.

Lemon at first apologized for sounding “crude,” and then pressed further: “You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it,” he said.

“Biting,” he later said more directly.

“I didn’t even think of it,” Tarshis replied.

Read the full exchange:

Lemon: Can I ask you this, because — and please, I don’t mean to be crude, ok?

Tarshis: Yeah.

Lemon: Because I know some of you — and you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said “I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.”

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: And you said he made you perform oral sex.

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.

Tarshis: Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn’t even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.

Lemon: Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?

Tarshis: Yes, that’s what I’m thinking you’re —

Lemon: As a weapon.

Tarshis: Yeah, I didn’t even think of it.

Lemon: Biting.

Tarshis: Ouch.

Lemon: Yes. I had to ask. I mean, it is, yeah.

Tarshis: Yes. No, it didn’t cross my mind.

Another Bill COsby Accuser Come Out!

Yet another woman has come out publically about Bill Cosby raping her…

Damn! There goes America’s hero…

Janice Dickinson details Bill Cosby sexual assault accusations: He raped me

Bill Cosby’s legacy in limbo as NBC cancels project amid mounting sex assault allegations

The avalanche of sexual assault claims coming at comedian Bill Cosby in recent weeks may have ended his career.

Both NBC and Netflix have scrapped projects with the 77-year-old icon after long-forgotten rape claims from more than a dozen women were brought back into the light by comedian Hannibal Buress.

The network had previously announced a sitcom starring Cosby would debut next year but said Wednesday the project, which had not yet been named, was to feature him in a family setting similar to the wildly successful “Cosby Show.”

The cancellation came one day after Netflix announced it was postponing the launch of a Cosby standup comedy special. It was set to debut on Black Friday.

Both blows may prove to be fatal to the aging icon’s showbiz career. He is not known to have had any further projects on the table.

At least 14 women claim Cosby sexually assaulted them in claims dating back to 1969, an attack detailed Sunday in an op-ed in which Joan Tarshis claims she was drugged and raped when she was only 19-years-old.

The most recent accusations came from model Janice Dickinson, who explained during an “Entertainment Tonight” interview aired Tuesday that Cosby assaulted her in 1982.

Now 59-years-old, Dickinson’s timeline of events paralleled many of the other claims.

Dinner, drinks, then waking up dazed the next morning in different clothes than were worn the day before.

“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out thinking that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she told ET.

“Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me,” she continued. “And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”

A Cosby attorney called Dickinson a liar in a Wednesday morning statement. Previous claims were also shot down by spokespersons or lawyers.

A dozen other women have made similar claims against the legendary television and stage star after Buress brought attention back to Cosby’s sordid past during an October appearance at a Philadelphia standup club.

“You rape women, Bill Cosby,” Buress told a wide-eyed crowd. “You’re rapist.”

All I can say is “Why?” Over a dozen women are all saying the same thing…
