Prosecutors say a police detective in Kansas, City, Kansas preyed on vulnerable Black women, raped them and told them no one would believe their stories. Decades later, he’s facing federal charges.
During two decades at the Kansas City Police Department, Detective Roger Golubski was always on the lookout for his next victim, someone pretty, poor and Black, someone no one would believe over the word of a white man with a badge, prosecutors say.
Golubski found one of them as she was walking home from the grocery store, another while sifting through booking photos. Others he came across while serving search warrants or arresting their husbands or sons, according to detailed accounts in court records.
