    The guy is a rapist he had 7 other cases of rape where woman testified against him. And they had DNA evidence from 96 that proved his guilt. Come on people have a better look at the facts before you come to conclusions. By the way the the police officer (the victims boyfriend and fiance)at the time had no motive whtaoever to rape his future wife.

    At the end of the story they comment that there will be more to investigate once the cop/boyfriend gets out of prison!

    I don't trust the victim's "ex cop rapist fiancee" at all.
    Even, if her family says and thinks otherwise, but racism sadly was and likely still is a thing in Texas, so their personal opinions and impressions might be somehow clouded...

    Evil racist liberal scums defending reed just because he’s black when he is clearly guilty, he raped seven other women as well including a 12 year old. His DNA was found on some of them.

  • Wow Legend

    DNA matched this evil black POS, he also raped seven other women. This is a fact but the racist anti white liberal media defends him because he’s black.

      I was thinking it was closer to Forest Witaker if he got beat for 2 weeks street out of the womb, but I guess he could just be the love child of them both.

      Well, he's black so he's guilty of SOMETHING. Throw the switch.

    • SsSs RoBbSs
      SsSs RoBbSs 16 days ago +1

      You should be praying for real justice instead because its still EXTREMELY likely hes guilty. If you care about Stites, or any of the 6 other people accusing Reed of raping them (including the 12 year old girl) you'll be hoping for the ACTUAL truth, not Reed's name to be cleared.

    • FBI 1987
      FBI 1987 15 days ago

      Apparently not, cause you think he is innocent.
      Explain, if you will, something for me:
      His saliva was found on her chest. Assuming that his claim is true, the only way his saliva could still be present on her chest was if she didn't bathe for a minimum of at least a day, ignoreing that he said it was multiple days since they had been together, and kept her chest wet for that same period of time, while both working, and living with her fiancee.
      Remember, he said they had been together only a few days prior, meaning for that entire time, she did everything she could, going well outside of reason, to keep his saliva on her chest.
      Do explain the how, and why.

      Maybe, maybe not. But they most certainly should stay in jail if they murdered a woman, and raped more than half a dozen more including her and a child...
