Every Encuentro, as students and youth across the country build student, youth and community power for collective liberation against oppression, my heart soars and I’m overwhelmed with inadequately described joy and a love that feeds my soul. A feeling that includes struggle, sadness, love, laughter, chosen family and solidarity is all that encompasses the wondrous community. A community that ebbs and flows with changes of students and youth but consistency in its being a home of hearts and passion as we bring forward to our futures, a message of justice and dignity with us across the world. Till next time, Immokalee. #2014Encuentro #nofilter #latergram (at Immokalee, FL)
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.
