Like I mentioned on my last blog post featuring a transcription of a video on Katie Joy's YouTube channel, Without A Crystal Ball, I find this to be a very useful tool when looking at information spoken in videos.
My biggest problem with Katie Joy's sexual assault allegations is not her claim of sexual assault. I believe something happened and it was likely sexual assault, and probably by the person she claims assaulted her that night. I don't believe many women lie about sexual assault, let alone lie to the extremes of filing a police report and telling the world on social media. I realize I could be wrong, but honestly, it feels more right to be wrong believing her than it does to possibly be right in disbelieving Katie's story. Regardless, my issue with her version of events sets solely on the claims she makes regarding the Saint Louis Park Police Department, and the investigating officer who interviewed Katie a couple days after the alleged assault.
Rather than me spend this time explaining to you what I mean, I'm just going to provide a partial transcription for Katie's YouTube video titled, The Night That Changed My Life Forever - No One Believed Me, uploaded to YouTube on September 7, 2020. The part I am posting here is the part where Katie describes her experience reporting her assault, and the alleged horrible treatment she claims to have received from law enforcement as a result. Now, mind you, this is a man's career she is shitting on with these accusations. I realize officers are not without fault, I mean, they are only human like the rest of us after all, and I do find it to feel very odd to be on this side of a discussion regarding behavior from law enforcement, but there is no way Katie is being honest in her recollection of events with this detective. The biggest reason for my saying this is her unbelievable story she told in her video, nothing else.
The section I transcribed, without break, begins at the 28:15 mark of the video, and ends at the 40:20 mark. I urge you to take a moment and read what she had to say before you come to a conclusion. Her accusations regarding the officer are ridiculous.
I have uploaded the video in question to the following Dropbox link since, as usual, Katie privatized this video after her publishing it had a less than desirable affect.
The transcription is as follows:

The following is a transcription of a video Katie Joy streamed on September 7, 2020 titled "Thank You for Helping Me Use My Voice." Here is a link to the video, though I believe Katie has since made the video private. I will be uploading the video, and any other media I find likely to be deleted by Katie and worth preserving, to a media hosting site that is able to host long videos such as this as soon as I find such a site. I'm told Imgur can now host long videos like this, it was my belief they couldn't in the past, if this is the case then I will upload the video there under the account SlayerUtica.
**EDIT Imgur can't host big video files like this so I just settled on using Dropbox. Here is the video link.
I'd like to add that the timestamps I've included are not for any reason other than to make it easier to find specific texts in the video. I tried to break it up according to pauses to the best of my ability. Though the timestamps may look as though I did (they do to me anyway), I did not omit any part of her video in my transcription besides the usual uses of verbal fillers like "um."
The transcription for this video is as follows:
