    Arrests Made in Baltimore McDonalds’ Beating of a Transgender Woman (Baltimore)

    A Baltimore LGBT group, called Equality Maryland, confirmed that the victim of the Baltimore McDonalds’ beating is a transgender woman. Lisa Polyak, vice president of the board of directors for Equality Maryland commented on the video. “It does appear that the victim was a transgender woman, and she was brutalized while people stood by and watched,” “There’s no excuse for that violence under any circumstances, but we would encourage police to investigate as a hate crime.” Equality Maryland called on state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler to investigate the case as a hate crime.

    Police said a 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile for the assault while charges were pending against an 18-year-old woman. It seems that the fight was over “using a bathroom”. Sadly this could get messy also for the victim, legally. The Baltimore Legislature recently shot down a “bathroom bill” which would have given transgender people the right to choose which bathroom they would like to use.

    If this is a case of a 22 year old man entering a bathroom while a 14 year old girl was using it – get ready for a legal showdown. Any sleazeball criminal defense attorney will have enough facts to argue for a dismissal. I am sure the two girls have already been called by attorneys willing to take the case pro bono, trying to make a name. LGBT rights will spend more time on trial during this soon-to-be circus than the girls will. Still, all must agree that the assault, without a doubt, is heinous.

    Wait a minute. A man in drag decided to use the ladies room? I'd have kicked his ass as well.

    FreeRepublic has become quite an interesting forum to read ever since this story popped up....

    Because a gay man who wants to be a woman is a real big threat in the ladies room right?

    Would you be more comfortable with "it" in the men's room?

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Funny how all the sympathy for the victim dried up when it became known that she was a transsexual.

    I'm sympathetic, believe me. No one should have the ish beaten out of them like this... but, I got a question, it's not a gotcha, but it'll help me understand what happened. Was this one of those all in one room bathrooms, or the kind with stalls in it? If it was an all in one, then I could see how they would find out that the girl was trans. But if it's the kind with stalls... if the feet are turned wrong, just roll on, because you can't see anything, and you're just being an asshole at this point.

    Trans people are like bats... they are more afraid of you than you should be of them.

    That would be the question, wouldn't it?

    If they beat this person up because he/she was in the women's restroom, that does sound like a crime.

    If they beat this person up because he/she exposed male parts to a 14 year old girl, there was a crime on both sides...especially if the girl was in any way threatened or propositioned...(these are just 'what if' statements. This seems to be a case that can't be fairly judged without all the facts.)

    That said, I have a 14 year old daughter, and would react pretty strongly if a he/she exposed anything to her in a public restroom. Just saying...

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    I think a lot of these what if questions are moot. Evidently, one of the attackers accused the victim of trying to pick up her man....which we would lead me to believe they didn't even know about the transgendered part.
