I CANNOT understand how someone can say that they only wanted to ‘hurt her’ when this person shot at her. I believe that the Jury would not have come to the manslaughter charge if that person had not been a trans person!
May she rest in peace. How many more trans victims must there be before trans people receive equal protection under the law?
RJ…It doesn’t matter what we believe in a trial what matters is what the prosecutor can prove and how well the defense attorney does their job in proving reasonable doubt.
I hope the judge included the manslaughter option to ensure a conviction for something. The jury may not have gone for murder and the crim would have walked free….
