As NYPD Officers are Charged with Rape of Teenager, Advocates Call for End to Mass Sexual Violence

In New York City, two police officers have quit the New York Police Department after they were charged with rape, kidnapping and official misconduct. Prosecutors say former NYPD detectives Edward Martins and Richard Hall arrested an 18-year-old woman after stopping her car and finding a small amount of marijuana and a few anti-anxiety pills in her purse. Testing shows the DNA of both officers was found on the teenager. The former police officers are claiming the acts were consensual as their defense. “Violence is learned,” responds Mariame Kaba, an organizer and educator who works on anti-domestic violence programs. “Of course people exposed to violence all the time will use it.”
