VIDEO: Former Oklahoma City Officer Convicted of Multiple On-Duty Rapes

Former Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw was convicted Thursday night of committing numerous rapes and sexual assaults while on duty and faces a possible life sentence in prison.

In a racially charged case that attracted national attention, Holtzclaw was accused of committing sex crimes against 13 different African American women while patrolling a low-income neighborhood.

The disgraced ex-officer sobbed in court Thursday — his 29th birthday — as Oklahoma County Judge Timothy Henderson read the verdicts.

Facing a total of 36 counts, Holtzclaw was found guilty of 18 of them — including four separate counts of first-degree rape, the Washington Post reports.

And the Adam Henry cried like a baby when the verdicts were read. Enjoy your time with Bubba. You tarnished the badge and now you have to pay.

I agree Percy, as a retired LE, I am sickened by the stupidity of some of our officers. It is unfortunate that the few bad apples cause all of us who wear/wore the uniform to suffer.

This is probably the only time in history I have agreed with the Percy Troll. This man was a result of lowered hiring standards so the department could be truly representative of the public it serves. In the old days this idiot would have never been hired. When the profession began to lower its standards, it gained the same proportion of criminals that the general public has. Let's hear it for "Diversity in hiring" and all the other failed liberal experiments with law-enforcement.
