“Supporters of an Oklahoma City police officer who was charged with raping or sexually abusing eight black women have raised more than $7,000 for the 27-year-old cop. Daniel Holtzclaw was arrested in August on charges of rape, forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery, and indecent exposure for allegedly sexually assaulting women while on patrol. He is being held on $5 million bond. 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.” Read more from RawStory here: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/09/01/oklahoma-cop-accused-of-raping-black-women-finds-supporters-on-social-media/ Ana Kasparian (http://www.twitter.com/anakasparian) and Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) of The Young Turks discuss the story.
