You would think that after that incident in Md a year or so ago, in which the two black girls got 5 years for beating up the white trans girl in a fast food resturant. When do they ever learn? They learn when they get hurt for starting the incident! Will the police and prosecutors actually go after the three perpetrators?

Hi - you might want to do some reading up on the correct terminology for reporting on transgender issues. It's unclear from your story if the victim is a transgender woman or a transgender man. If the victim is a transgender woman (sex was assigned male at birth but identifies as a woman) she should be referred to as a woman (not "he" or "him").
