Women in Missouri were denied equal protection of the law by the U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 15, 2013. In the case of Snider-Carpenter, et. al v. City of Dixon, et al 13-5780, the Supreme Court left intact an absurd federal court precedent that a landlord could sexually assault his female tenants, demand sex in lieu of rent and try to buy the teenage daughter of a tenant as a new sex slave without violating the law or the rights of these women. The District Court stated, “It is undisputed that, …. Ron Mayo offered $100,000.00 and a bank account for her daughter.”
