Federal authorities have launched a criminal investigation against a recently fired Milwaukee police officer accused of sexually assaulting a woman after he responded to her 911 call in July.

Former officer Ladmarald Cates admitted to internal affairs investigators that he had sex with the woman, who called police because teenagers were trying to kick in the door of her north side home, according to police records obtained by the Journal Sentinel.

The woman says she told officers on the scene that Cates raped her. It appears that a sergeant responded two hours after the initial 911 call, according to dispatch records. But no one from internal affairs or Sensitive Crimes took a statement from the woman on the scene. Instead of being taken immediately to the hospital for treatment and evidence collection, she spent approximately 12 hours in jail before speaking with a sergeant or being interviewed by internal affairs. Only after that did she receive medical attention.

Besides Cates, no officers have been disciplined for violating those practices or for any other conduct connected with the incident, according to Milwaukee police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz.

This comes only months after Michael Pena, and off-duty cop raped a teacher in Inwood,  two other NYC pigs  Franklin Mata and Kenneth Moreno were acquitted of entering a woman’s house with her and raping her in her bedroom – see previous post, and also the response some people took in putting up pictures of Moreno in his neighborhood reading “Police Rapist Kenneth Moreno is your neighbor” and “Police Rapist Kenneth Moreno lives in park slope”.

Police will continue not only to make false arrests and brutalize people, but to RAPE AND ASSAULT WOMEN, TRANS,  AND GENDER NON-CONFORMING PEOPLE. We want to push the discourse to understand how sexual violence must be thought of as internal to the logic of American policing, the state, and capital. As they said in a recent action in the Bay Area DISARM COPS–ARM FEMINISTS.
