Robert Robinson, a juvenile probation supervisor, was recently fired for repeatedly sexually assaulting a minor child in Harris County’s juvenile detention facility. The news coverage describes his actions as “engaging in a sexual affair”, as if to minimize or provide some sort of justification to Robinson’s actions. Let’s be clear, according to the laws of Texas, Robinson sexually assaulted this minor child while she was defenseless in state custody. Community Activist Quannell X asks a very important question: “How did Robinson have any opportunity to have sex with a detainee in a facility full of people?”

As a community, I believe we all deserve and should demand an answer to this question!
