A man was charged with murder in three recent killings in Dallas, Texas, including the murder of Muhlaysia Booker, a black transgender woman whose death made national headlines last month, police announced Wednesday. Dallas Police Department major Max Geron said in a press conference that they arrested 34-year-old Kendrell Lavar Lyles in the murder of Booker, and a man and woman, both unnamed, in three separate cases.0 He also was named a “person of interest” in the murder of another transgender woman, 26-year-old Chynal Lindsey.(Snip) The arrest comes in the heels of a series of killings

Comments:

How many statues would be pulled down if a white person was caught targeting Trans Women of Color during Pride Month? The killer is a black man, so the "trans community" will make no hay about living in fear.

"Muhlaysia ". is that like "Muh Russia"? So if a black man in a dress is killed by another black man, then it's just a 'nothing to see here' moment. Now if the perp had been WHITE.....

So kids the race of a victim is relevant enough to make the headline but the race of the perpetrator is not?

Our local news station reporting the story has an interview with a cousin of one of the victims. They gave a warning to the viewers that the cousin refers to victim in terms of birth gender. Glad they gave a warning because hearing the cousin refer to him as a he would have been horrific...Hey NBC him is a he.

Why do they emphasize that the victim was black in the headline? Hoping that readers won't go any farther, concluding that the killer was white (he isn't) and that this was a "racist" murder?

Homosexual They are not necessarily gay, but homosexual. 2 Guys, homosexuals, not necessarily gay homosexuals. 2 women, homosexual, not Lesbians unless they are from a remote Greek island. Transgender Gender is a linguistic construct not a biological one French has LE Chat (the cat) and LA Table (the table). Le chat is make gender. La table is female GENDER. Biologically we have sexes From plants to fish to retiles to mammals one o EACH in combination reproduces. Homosexuals cannot reproduce. Lately they can adopt (take) children. they will never produce their own. I get exercised when I see that by replacing the word "homosexual" with gay, lesbian. and now another 10 letters they are allowed to teach 6 year old children that homosexuality etc. is as normal as Mom and Dad. I formally challenge Pete Buttgeig (pronounced Boot Judge I am told) to go to every debate he is part of and claim to be the FIRST openly HOMOSEXUAL presidential candidate and hug his so called husband. Just TIRED of the deceit.

It's tough being a transgender when the majority has a clear understanding of what normal is.

An undocumented immigrant day laborer who has admitted to bludgeoning an elderly socialite to death at her New York mansion was sentenced this morning to 22 years to life in prison after telling the court he wished he could trade placed with his victim. Esdras Marroquin Gomez, 34, learned his fate after reading a letter through a Spanish interpreter, in which he expressed remorse for taking the life of 83-year-old Lois Colley, the wife of millionaire McDonald's franchisee Eugene Colley, at her 300-acre North Salem estate in November 2015.(Snip) Gomez never provided a clear motive for why

Let your freak flag fly, New York! New York is coming out in a larger-than-life way this Pride Month, unveiling the biggest pride flag in the city’s history on Friday. But it won’t be a traditional cloth flag. Instead, the normally gray, concrete steps at Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park will be painted to resemble the iconic rainbow symbol for the gay rights movement. The fitting hashtag: #AscendWithPride. The location of the massive 12-foot-by-100-foot display of equality is no coincidence either. Four Freedoms State Park was established as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt

One of the suspects wanted in the shooting of David Ortiz is also being sought for a 2018 attempted murder in Pennsylvania—while the baseball slugger’s admitted triggerman may be connected to two New Jersey robberies, according to reports. Luis Alfredo Rivas Clase, 31, one of the four remaining suspects still at large following Sunday’s attempted hit on the former baseball slugger, is also one of the suspects wanted in connection to an April 2018 shooting in Reading, Pennsylvania, according to NBC 10. The victim in that shooting, a man, was hit in the back and survived.

Venezuela is releasing new banknotes for the second time in less than a year, the central bank said on Wednesday, after hyperinflation eroded the effects of an August 2018 monetary overhaul meant to improve availability of cash. Venezuela’s president, Nicolás Maduro, last year cut five zeroes off the currency and prices.(Snip) Banknotes of 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 bolívar denominations will begin circulating on Thursday to “make the payment system more efficient and facilitate commercial transactions”, the central bank said in statement.

A German boat captain faces 20 years in jail in Italy for rescuing 1,000 migrants in the Mediterranean after being accused of colluding with smugglers. Pia Klemp, 35, could be tried and imprisoned for helping people enter Europe illegally from the North African coast. Italian authorities allege that she colluded with smugglers to collect migrants at Mediterranean rendezvous points and stage rescues at sea. Undercover officers took pictures that allegedly showed human traffickers “escorting” vessels full of migrants before they were transferred to aid boats. Human traffickers in Libya are known to be extorting thousands of dollars from migrants who arrive

Federal law enforcement agencies knowingly invite foreigners, often with lengthy criminal records, into the U.S., sponsoring them for visas on the hope they’ll help out with an investigation. But in dozens of those cases the government has lost track of the people and agents were slow in reporting them to Homeland Security, allowing the trail to go cold in efforts to track down, according to a Justice Department inspector general’s report released Wednesday. From 2015 to 2017 the Justice Department sponsored roughly 5,500 immigrants for deferred deportation, an S visa or parole into the U.S. In about 20% of those cases

The FBI released the file it maintained on Playboy founder and editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner two years after the legendary publisher passed away — and it’s revealing. The bureau interviewed Hefner in the late 1950s and 1960s over what is described as “obscene material.” The file also contains a memo written to then-Director J. Edgar Hoover in which the agent in charge pitches putting Hefner and his photographer Edward Oppman under surveillance to see if either was transporting “pornographic images” across state lines. However, the investigation didn’t turn up any crimes. “Persons interviewed advised that Hefner too clever to violate

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott signed Monday a sweeping no-limits abortion bill, creating a “fundamental right” to the procedure as a bulwark against the Supreme Court’s 5-4 conservative majority. Mr. Scott, a pro-choice Republican, signed the bill in private, a marked contrast from the splashy celebration that accompanied New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signing of legislation in January clearing the path for abortion through 40 weeks’ gestation. Afterward, Mr. Scott posted a statement saying that the legislation, H. 57, “affirms what is already allowable in Vermont—protecting reproductive rights and ensuring those decisions remain between a woman and her health

The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you. Because the country agrees that what happened to the Gibsons should not happen to anyone, but could happen to everyone.”
