CityBeat: Drunk, With Power
If the first incident with the two police officers and Ms. Linthicum happened on a college campus, it would have been called rape by nearly everyone. I call it rape. If someone is clearly drunk, and a police officer is a good judge at determining intoxication, then these police officers would have knowingly had non-consensual sex with such a drunken person.

Both cops are gone, but these cops should have been put on trial. It is strange that this issue did not get the rise from the boycotters that other police misconduct produced. I wonder if the boycotters got a look at Ms. Linthicum and lost interest. I applaud City Beat for following up on this story and giving the victim a chance to speak her side of the story.
