    Let’s hope the sentence is at least as long as the one given back in September last year.

    1. The courts need to make an example of him and not a lenient sentence which would give the impression that we are worth far less than other members od our society

  2. Let’s hope the court takes violence against a trans person as seriously as against any other minority

    I hope this man is tried and convicted to the full extent of the law, and with the maximum sentence for this hurtful and disgusting crime.

    I wish the friends and family of Destiny the best, and Destiny will be sorely missed. We love you Destiny x

    1. I saw Destiny on guilty being berated by her friends. She was beautifull. RIP

  4. Thank God there is justice for our trans brothers and sisters.

    Calling all Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Transsexuals Of the world unite My Brothers and Sisters and take to the streets in a blazing path of destruction in order to get the rights and freedoms we deserve. For far to long our kind been treated as inferior and worthless It is now our time to rise and show them at we are not inferior!!! Make no Mistake, They are trying to wipe us out just because they see us as not normal.

    THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A REVOLUTION!!!!!

  6. I hope this sick b*astard gets jailedfor life, then raped by the nonces every day he serves. There is no excuse for this crime, none what so ever.

    We are slowly being killed off one by one, does nobody care what happens to us, will no one help us!!??

      You are correct Melanie.
      You see, THIS is why I get angry everytime I hear some little twat opine that there’s no need to have politics in Pride.
      Step outside the cozy little world of Compton St, and the walls of the bar you’re in, then it’s not so easy to be who your are. It can be a bloody hard life not being heterosexual.
      We do need to fight and we do need to support each other, instead of sneering and whining at those who are trying to streer for political changes.
      If we turn our backs, there are lots of people who’ll haul our rights away just because they don’t understand…or want to.

    He deserves to be executed for such a horrible crime… It’s a crime this creep will one day walk free.
