This was one of the best documentary I have seen (6/25/06 Lifetime) regarding Transgender. No one regardless of what or how they choose to live should be killed for it! I have several transgender friends and just because I do not agree with their life style, I still respect them for their courage for living how they want to be, a man or woman. This is a free country and who are we to judge! If we let people get away with such "hate crimes" which is what happened! Put an end to idiots that have no respect for life! These are worse than "animals" that torture, kill, mock others and enjoy it at the expense of taking a life. What if it was one of their loved ones that was/is a transgender? When will we learn? When will we stop living in the dark ages? What does it take for teachers, administration, others to put a stop to this and not turn your eyes away and act like this problem does not exist. What does it take, more lifes? There is enough hate in this messed up world to contiue feeding it more! Make a difference, grow up! Live your life and LET OTHERS LIVE THEIRS!
