Accused serial rapist Kentucky cop faces disturbing new allegations from two more women

Published

on

A Kentucky cop is now facing six lawsuits alleging that he raped women, including while he was on duty.

Former Louisville police offer Pablo Cano, who resigned after several of the lawsuits were filed, is accused of having raped women in his patrol car and in uniform.

“I couldn’t believe it was happening,” one of the alleged victims told a Kentucky TV station. “A police officer in uniform was doing that to me.”

Cano started with the Louisville department in 2015. That year, he faced a complaint over shooting a homeowner’s pit bull after the homeowner called to report a break-in. Cano was reportedly rejected by four Florida police departments. Miami reportedly passed him over because he said he’d used psychedelic mushrooms.

The first allegations against Cano were made in July 2017. In September, he resigned. The city opened an investigation into the allegations, which is “ongoing.” Cano has not yet been charged with a crime.

Attorney Shannon Fauver, who is representing the victims, has told harrowing stories of the alleged rapes, some of which began with a traffic stop. In one case, a woman with a bench warrant was pulled over and allegedly solicited for sex.

“He wanted to know if she wanted to be arrested or perform services,” Fauver explained. “So he followed her, he took her phone number first and followed her. They actually went to the store and got condoms.”

Because the officer was on the clock, in uniform and in his marked police vehicle, the alleged victims were afraid to come forward.

“They all waited a while to come in because he’s an officer,” Fauver said. “They were all afraid to report it because they assume officers cover for themselves or each other. I don’t think that’s true, but that is what the general public sees on TV and stuff.”

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
