Boston Globe: Three weeks after being freed from the jail where he was being held on rape charges, Level 3 sex offender Shawn McClinton faced new allegations Thursday that he kidnapped, beat, and raped a woman he met walking along a Quincy street. The new charges against McClinton, 39, sparked immediate criticism of the Massachusetts Bail Fund, the group that posted the $15,000 bail to set him free.
The new allegations against McClinton are similar to those in the open 2018 case in Suffolk Superior Court. In the older case, a woman told police she was attacked in a McDonald’s bathroom, where McClinton ordered her to perform oral sex on him at knife-point. He allegedly slapped, choked, and threatened to kill her. He was awaiting trial on those charges when the Bail Fund posted his $15,000 cash bail, according to Assistant District Attorney Michael Glennon, the prosecutor in both cases. McClinton, who was convicted of rape in 1994 and 2007 and has a pending rape case in Suffolk Superior Court, was ordered held without bail Thursday by Judge Lisa Grant of Dorchester District Court.
In the current case, police allege the woman met McClinton on Tuesday in Quincy and went with him to his home in Dorchester. When she tried to leave, she told police, he accused her of being an undercover police officer. He became enraged and started beating her. He allegedly strangled her and forced her at knife-point to perform oral sex. He said, “Do you know what I could do to you?” according to the police report. She lost consciousness. After she woke up, she fled and wandered the streets, where a bystander found her 40 minutes later. She had significant cuts and scrapes and bruising around her neck, Glennon told the judge.
Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said he was “absolutely appalled” that someone with McClinton’s history would be freed. “We’re getting to a point in society where we’re giving more credence to criminals than victims. We’re talking about violent offenders. Why would you bail someone who committed rapes?”
The group has existed for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic and the killing of George Floyd by police in Minnesota have spurred a massive infusion of donations to bail funds nationally. As recently as January, it was posting bails of up to only $500, but in recent weeks the group has paid as much as $85,000 to free a defendant who was accused of shooting someone in broad daylight. This week, it bailed out 30 defendants in Boston, a court official said.
“Aggravated rape, kidnapping for the purpose of sexual assault, strangulation and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon are not low-level misdemeanors. They are violent felonies,” Rollins said. “And the person they bailed out is a sexual predator that hurts and rapes women and children. The Bail Fund posted $15,000 and set McClinton loose on our community … They have no responsibility to or compassion for the victims and survivors of his crimes, or the families that he has destroyed. I do.
“You talk about a violation of constitutional rights? Women aren’t free to walk around because of this predator, and the Bail Fund wants to bail someone like that?” Gross said. “The Bail Fund folks are not from the inner city. I don’t know who they think they’re helping. They’ve proved they are a detriment to the community.”
In early July, the Bail Fund put up $85,000 to free Karmau Cotton-Landers, 25, who was accused of shooting someone in broad daylight on Boston Common in early April. Other defendants recently freed by the Bail Fund include Walker Browning, accused of robbing five women, two at knife-point; David Privette, facing charges of holding up a gas station at gunpoint; and Otis Walker, who had been held since late 2018 on three counts of child rape. These three were being held on bails ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.
Remember when Barstool Sports Ellie Schnitt used her Twitter account with over 500K followers to raise money for this bail fund, but insisted that the money only went to the “peaceful protesters”?

Bro. The money is for the peaceful protesters who have been wrongfully arrested. This is lazy. You’d know this if you read even one of the fund descriptions. There are more pressing topics to be using your loud mouth for.

Turns out a bunch of white women bailing rapists out of jail so they can rape some more is a bridge too far for even the Boston Globe and Rachael Rollins. “Don’t bail out rapists” seems like a common sense creed to live by, but thanks to the good white folk over at BLM they’ve come to believe that literally every black person in jail is in there for getting caught with an ounce of weed. Barstool Sports and every other media outlet that raised money for this organization helped this man rape another woman violently at knifepoint. They did it because they were brainwashed by the media into thinking that what happened to George Floyd was a common occurrence. They did it purely out of white guilt because they wanted to seem like they were helping. But they didn’t want to bother themselves with researching the organization because although they care about ending racism, they also didn’t want to waste too much time on it.
Guess who made $12,000 for the bail fund a couple months ago?
Monica Cannon-Grant. AKA Monica “gimme that” Grant. The woman who invented and monetized white guilt like no person in the history of humanity.
According to the AGO’s office every person involved in this profitable non-profit is a white woman, which is exactly the kind of person MCG preys upon. Their current President is Norma Wassel form Cambridge, and the treasurer is Muriel Kramer from Hopkinton.
They look exactly how you imagined they would.
Muriel lives in Hopkinton, which is about as far away from black people as you can possibly live in Massachusetts. She often participates in Zoom calls where not a single black person is present.
She lives in a community in which animals like Shawn McClinton are not a threat because they don’t go there after getting bailed out. Instead they unleash these monsters on black and brown communities so they can rape black and brown women. White suburban liberals are the biggest racists on earth, and they do everything in their power to use their “privilege” to hurt black people.
Atara Rich-Shea is another wealthy Cambridge woman who serves as Mass Bail Fund’s executive director. She of course hasn’t commented on why she chose to help bail a rapist out of jail with $85K worth of donated money that donors thought was going towards Antifa looters.
Probably too busy getting her Karen hair cut, giving another speech on how important she is, or printing free muh boi t-shirts.
The there’s this guy.
Michael Cox, Bail Fund Administrator, is an advocate for LGBTQ and HIV positive people who are impacted by the criminal legal system. After serving a prison sentence he noticed that the prison system is both counter-productive and abusive. Since his release, he has worked to change that. He earned his A.S. in business management from Bunker Hill Community College and his B.A. in political science from Clark University.
Mike Cox was featured on TB Daily News in February after meeting with State Senator Jamie “Captain Planet” Eldridge so they could blame corrections officers for being attacked in a riot. Mike Cox knows a lot about jail since he spent some time in one after he beat a 59 year old gay man with a dumbbell in P-Town.
Michael Cox, 23, of Worcester, was sentenced to six years in prison on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, mayhem, armed assault to murder and attempted murder. Cox attacked the owner of Dorian Studios in his home above the store at 322 Commercial Street on May 28, 2007. Police and rescue workers responded and found the 59-year-old owner unconscious and bleeding from a head wound. Cox was also on the premises, in possession of a bloody dumbbell. Cox has a criminal record in Massachusetts that includes a 2004 assault and battery conviction, and 2005 convictions for possession of marijuana and crack cocaine.
- Entirely white non-profit run by wealthy white women and a violent criminal who tries to murder people with dumbbells sees a black guy in Minnesota get killed and makes a ton of cash off it
- Monica Cannon-Grant sees this, doesn’t want to be left off the money train and latches onto it by pocketing $12K in unreported income
- Antifa bailed out of jail for rioting and looting with donated money
- Lots of cash left over so violent rapists also get bailed out of jail so they can continue to rape more women
P.S. This is not the rapist, he just looks like him and has the same name but lives in Chicago. It would be so awesome if it was him though after reading his thoughts on BLM and riots.
