    Judging by the number of responses in this thread, nobody on RJ cares, either. icon_confused.gif

    just an odd story all the way around. she's out there having a casual conversation at 5:15am? Then gets shot b/c she's transgendered? then cops just walk away? it's sad she lost her life, but it's just very odd.

    Any murder in Oakland is usually judged not newsworthy. There is a tremendous under-reporting of violent crime in the Bay Area, particularly the East Bay.

    Explain how authorities know she was murdered for being trans. The witness only said the man became angry, nothing more. There is no discussion of the suspect(s) or if they were apprehended, and the analysis provided by the far-left Daily Kos seems based on pure speculation. Also, bringing race into it is unnecessary as Oakland has a very high percentage of people of color and black-on-black crime is quite common there.

    I'm seeing a coincidence, not a hate crime.

    I am also seeing a pattern, but I dont think this was a hate crime.

    I'm assuming that it was based on the witness account as they heard the conversation.

    Guy: Hey hot momma, you lookin' to have some fun tonight?
    Girl [in a deeper/manly voice]: Yeah baby.
    Guy: OMG you sound like a dude!
    Girl: Uh, I used to be, but the doc took care of that problem.
    Guy [pulls gun]: Bitch ima fuck you up!
    *bang bang*

    Ok that's NOT a direct quote of the event, but it's probably not far off.

    How many murders come to pass in the USA everyday, and never get much news coverage, or any at all.
