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.

CNN mixed up Nigeria and Niger. Not surprising if you watch western news regularly. They use Nigerian and Nigerien like it’s interchangeable.
I’ll never forget when a reporter was on location and said “reporting from the capital, Niamey…” and the anchor in the studio started talking about what people in Lagos and the rest of Nigeria think of the latest developments in the capital, Niamey.
These are the people discussing Africa on the news.
