Insult to Injury: Tyler Media Reopens Wounds for Holtzclaw Victims

On Tuesday, Tyler Media posted an electronic billboard on behalf of CRTV.com, featuring the image of disgraced former police officer and convicted rapist Daniel Holtzclaw, and posing the question “WHAT IF HE DIDN’T DO IT?” The billboard was located at I-44 and Kelley, on Oklahoma City’s east side.

Review: Quentin Moore – An Old Soul Reincarnated
