She's the government forensic expert who was assigned to handle the DNA evidence in the case of former OCPD officer Daniel Holtzclaw. </p> <p>Taylor is also the mother-in-law of Det. Rocky Gregory, who co-led the police investigation of Holtzclaw from the outset. Det. Gregory collected and submitted DNA evidence items to his mother-in-law; their biased and unprofessional conduct regarding DNA evidence collection, testing and analysis has come under international scrutiny and public criticism from at least seven scientists and DNA experts. The familial relationship between Taylor and Gregory, which I first reported on Dec. 5, 2017, was not disclosed to Holtzclaw's trial defense team or to the public defenders on his appellate team. The city's litigation division head has shrugged off the failure to disclose this key information and dismissed any actual or perceived conflict of interest.</p> <p>I did not know of Taylor and Gregory's relationship when I first reached out to Taylor about the Holtzclaw case last year. Here was the full text of my Dec. 6, 2016, email to Taylor (which I also sent to her supervisor, Campbell Ruddock, as well as to the OCPD public information officer at Taylor's request):<p>Updated: Thu Jan 04, 2018</p> 89a565272997281fa59736dcb0db7de4 An Unfond Farewell to Un-statesman Orrin Hatch for 01/03/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/01/18/an-unfond-farewell-to-un-statesman-orrin-hatch Wed, 03 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p></p><p><p>Updated: Wed Jan 03, 2018</p> 7855425102ce758258c27fa0ecee7aaf Honoring 2017's Bulldogs for 12/27/2017 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/12/17/honoring-2017s-bulldogs Wed, 27 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800 <p>There are talkers and doers, sowers of dissatisfaction seeds and agents of lasting change. Much of my column work over the year is dedicated to exposing the worst crapweasels in politics, pop culture, media and the policy arena. But to ring out 2017, I'm raising a toast to some of my favorite bulldogs &#8212; vigilant citizens, independent journalists and bloggers, and dedicated activists who work tirelessly to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.</p> <p>Angel Moms and Dads: These brave parents of victims of illegal immigrant crime keep the legacies of their lost loved ones alive by fighting for secure borders and immigration enforcement to prevent more needless suffering. After President Trump spotlighted several members on the campaign trail in 2016, liberal journalists attacked them as a "hate group" &#8212; never mind the fact that many are legal immigrants and naturalized citizens themselves. As open-borders lobbyists fight hard this coming year for amnesty, sanctuary cities, and border wall sabotage, look for the Angel Moms and Dads to step up and speak for the voiceless.</p> <p>Terri LaPoint: An Alabama-based writer and investigative reporter, Terri runs MedicalKidnap.com for Health Impact News. She exposes the dangerous alliance between child welfare bureaucrats and elite medical institutions that undermine parental rights and separate sick kids from their families in the name of saving them. While the Justina Pelletier and Charlie Gard cases prompted international outrage, most medical kidnappings go unnoticed and unreported on a chillingly routine basis. LaPoint is the go-to resource for families under siege for defending their medical autonomy.<p>Updated: Wed Dec 27, 2017</p> 959fc743169297a656ad68999750660c Time for Trump Makeover of Lib NPR and PBS for 12/20/2017 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/12/17/time-for-trump-makeover-of-lib-npr-and-pbs Wed, 20 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>At the close of 2017, no less than seven prominent male hosts and editors of influential government-sponsored radio and television shows are out of work amid claims of sexual harassment.</p> <p>According to their accusers, the alleged Malevolent Seven are powerful pervs and creeps who've been running wild at NPR and PBS for decades, sponsored and subsidized by taxpayers and corporate donors.<p>Updated: Wed Dec 20, 2017</p> d22c86e0349279f5a161da305740a7c2 Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part 2 for 12/18/2017 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/12/17/pyongyang-on-the-prairie-part-2 Mon, 18 Dec 2017 00:00:00 -0800 <p>In Oklahoma City, words don't mean what they plainly mean.
