White cop who assaulted Black women wants job back

Officer Daniel Holtclaw

Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw wants his job back. The problem is that he has been accused of sexually assaulting at least 13 women, all of whom were Black.

Holtzclaw was arrested last August and is facing 36 different charges, including rape, sexual battery, oral sodomy, indecent exposure, stalking and burglary. If convicted on all counts, he could face life in prison. Holtzclaw targeted women in the predominantly Black Springlake division of Oklahoma City.

But Holtzclaw was not officially terminated until Jan. 8, 2015 and was still getting a paycheck while in jail.  In the letter announcing Holtzclaw’s termination, Oklahoma City Police Chief William Citty wrote, “Your offenses committed against women in our community constitute the greatest abuse of police authority I have witnessed in my 37 years as a member of this agency. These violations more than warrant your termination from the Oklahoma City Police Department.”

So he did what many police officers do when faced with trouble and turned to the police union. Holtzclaw requested assistance from the local Fraternal Order of Police in getting his job reinstated.

A committee of the F.O.P reviewed the facts that related to his dismissal and unanimously denied his request. Mark Nelson, VP OKC Fraternal order of police stated, “Based on what we heard we felt that there was enough reason to sustain the department’s decision of termination.”

In addition to his police paycheck, Holtzclaw had a GoFundMe donation page that received more than $7,000 until it was shut down due to complaints. The family also maintains a “Justice for Daniel Holtzclaw” Facebook page.  Holtzclaw is out on bond and under house arrest while awaiting trial.

    He should get his job back, but not receive a check until he has paid restitution to every woman he assaulted. If it takes 20 years – GOOD. He can have his pension and whatever he paid in SSN wages up until he lost his job in his old age.

    No apologies for this guy – no “we forgive you”, no “he has suffered enough”. Only WE WILL NOT FORGET what you did to our women! Now get your butt back to work.

      You think “restitution” is the only punishment this rapist cop should receive AND he should get his job back?! NO. He should be fired from the police force and placed in a mental health facility at the least because it’s obvious that he’s sick and surely does NOT belong in a position of authority.

    First Jason, fuck you and your sick ass devil mine. This ass hole is why people of color don’t trust the police. How about if the satanic ass hole had raped your mom, sister, child or grand mom? – Would you be saying -give him back his job? No, jason the jack ass- so I say fuck both of you – kkk, nazis, and satan mines bitches. No apologies here. Fuck you forgiveness- bitch made coon.

    He’ll have more that enough jobs to do in prison. A rapist, racist cop will have his hands and colon full in the big house.
