Mississippi man rapes woman after locking her inside jury-rigged hidden storage unit chamber

Published

A Mississippi man allegedly constructed an elaborate hidden compartment and raped a Kansas woman in it when she asked to end her date with him.

According to KAUZ, the 28-year-old woman told police that she ended up at A-American Self Storage while on a date with 34-year-old Toby Wayman Brown Jr. in September.

The woman described a series of modifications that Brown had made to the storage unit, including a hidden door which led to back living area with couch, chair, TV and table. She said there was also a small loft area that contained a mattress.

The victim said that a surveillance monitor in the loft was connected to a video camera that allowed Brown to watch what was happening outside the storage unit.

She said that Brown refused to take her home when she repeatedly asked him, and he told her to lie down in the loft area. After she entered the loft, she heard him screwing the hidden door shut so that she was locked into the storage unit. He also removed a ladder, making it difficult for her to climb down from the loft.

Brown joined her in the loft area, while monitoring the surveillance camera, the victim said. He then sexually assaulted her, and held her throat to prevent her from screaming.

The manager of A-American Self Storage later confirmed to investigators that he had observed the modifications to the storage unit that the woman had described. Brown reportedly rented a U-haul truck from the storage company, and cleaned out the unit. The truck was later found abandoned in Houston, Texas.

Brown was being held at the Wichita County Jail on sexual assault charges, and an outstanding fugitive from justice governor’s warrant from Mississippi.

Here’s a major risk for coronavirus spread that everyone seems to be overlooking

Published

A public health expert warned that the coronavirus can linger in the air and infect others.

Joseph Allen, director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization are overlooking airborne transmission and focusing instead on COVID-19's spread through droplets and surfaces.

"This is why you clean and disinfect surfaces, but they've ignored airborne transmission," Allen said.

Central Park incident just one more example of white women using their status to terrorize black men: NYT’s Charles Blow

Published

on

Amy Cooper is just the latest example of white women using their privilege and femininity to terrorize black men, according to a new column from Charles Blow.

The New York Times columnist explains that a video recording of an incident involving Cooper, an investment manager, and Christian Cooper, a science editor, has a long and shameful historical precedent.

"This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic," Blow write. "Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted."
