Tahreem Zeus Rana, an Atlanta police officer who allegedly murdered Vernicia Woodard, 26, a woman that he met online, was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Thursday as he was attempting to escape to Mexico, reports CBS46.com.
Police allowed Rana, who had been placed on a no-fly list, to go through airport security to ensure that he wasn’t armed, then arrested him.
Rana, who has been with the Atlanta Police Department for 3 years, will face kidnapping, murder and arson charges.
This is that shit that drives me to complete and utter rage.
This despicable piece of a human being, Atlanta police officer Tahreem Zeus Rana, shot, multiple times, murdered, and then set on fire, Vernicia Woodward, a 26-year-old black woman who he met through Craigslist.
This scumbag obliterated this woman, the mother of an 8-year-old girl, and you know what most of the mainstream press does?
You got it.
Talk about how great a person Rana seemed to be and how HIS family must feel about these “allegations.”
You know what, “free press”?
Fuck you down to your mitochondria.
They are no longer “allegations” when the bullets have been traced back to his police department-authorized weapon STILL IN HIS POSSESSION, when the shell casings found at the scene are identical to the shell casings found in his apartment, when he was caught trying to flee the country, when he refuses to cooperate with authorities.
You talk about “let the justice system do its work” like that work hasn’t been to grind black people into dust.
Get all the way the fuck out of here.
We give ZERO fucks about how “wonderful a person” Rana was, how “shocked” all his friends are, or how when he was a little boy, he wanted to be a police officer when he grew up.
We only care about Vernicia.
We want to know what will become of HER family now.
We want to know who will take care of HER daughter now that this shit puddle took her away for no earthly cause.
We want to know about the endless sadness HER absence will wreak on those whose lives she touched.
We want to know which jail you will be burying Rana under for the rest of his natural-born life to ensure that no black woman is ever in danger of knowing him.
We want you to not dig into Vernicia’s life to use the time she kissed somebody, the time she stepped on a roach, the time she stayed out past 10 p.m., or whatever else you fucking bottom-feeders scrounge around for and promote in order to make it seem like a black victim can never be a victim.
We want you to know that it doesn’t escape us that the photo you’re using for Rana is his police officer head shot with the bloody-ass American flag sagging brightly in the background like he’s some kind of fucking Superman. But the photo you used for Vernicia appears to be a mugshot.
For that, may you choke on your own bile.
You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to find a justification for what Rana did to her because, as any human being with an ounce of sense or compassion would know, THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR WHAT WAS DONE TO HER.
VERNICIA WOODARD IS THE VICTIM HERE.
And we won’t let you forget it.
