Indiana Trans Woman Shot In Face; Suspect Arrested

5 posts in this topic

Hate crime or not, I am glad the son of a sea slug has been arrested!!!.   I am more outraged over the line that a news paper in the area had alluded to sex work of any sort.  I am glad the victim's brother is supporting her as he is.  I have a Trans* friend who is a Deputy District Attorney here in CA, and we have talked about the Hate Crime problems that she would have and while this looks like a hate crime in the news here it could be very difficult to prove and could backfire on the original charge with many juries.

Unless those two had a relationship, and there's no evidence of that, that defense would be a tough fit.

You know that and I know that, but this case is not over yet.
