Transgender Woman Says She Was Jailed With Men, Assaulted
NBC News "Out" ^ | November 7, 2017

Posted on 11/07/2017 1:00:20 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

PITTSBURGH — A transgender woman was physically and sexually assaulted during stays at a Pennsylvania jail, because staff refused to place her with female inmates, the woman said in a lawsuit filed Monday.

Jules Williams, 37, has identified as female since she was a teenager and is in possession of a birth certificate and state ID reflecting that identification, attorney Alec Wright said.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which is also representing Williams, said she was raped multiple times over four days by another inmate in 2015 and was also physically and verbally abused during several periods of incarcerations from 2015 to this year.

The ACLU said it is standard practice at the jail for transgender women to be housed with men, which the organization said violates their constitutional rights.

The lawsuit names Allegheny County and jail administrators as defendants.

Much better to have the women in the women’s jail be violated instead, right?

So, this freak will end up getting millions of dollars, care of the tax-payers, due to refusing to accept his anatomy as provided by God. Probably should make a point to stay out of jail, if you can’t decide whether you are male or female.

You’re supposed to figure that the only reason anybody goes to jail is oppression or something.

If this person wins, that means women masquerading as men (and likely still having unmaimed genitalia) will be placed in the men’s prison. That would NOT be pretty.
There is something wrong with a prison system where assaults on other inmates (including those convicted of no crime yet) happen commonly enough as to be almost expected.

Transvestites are normally housed separately. Either by themselves or with other "men" of questionable sexual "identity". I would be surprised if this thing was housed in general population. They probably put him in "gay" housing, with one or more of his type.

Gays will rape other gays and maybe this guy was real pretty. Putting him in general population would be a bad thing and they jail would most likely lose a lawsuit. It is their mission to protect prisoners from each other as best they can.

I'm sure there's more to this story than they have reported.

Trust no journalist.

This is stupid, because it is not infrequent for MEN to be raped and assaulted in men’s prisons.

What’s different here?

Just curious, what does SCIENCE say about this person’s gender?? And isn’t that what really matters here? SCIENCE!

Or is the ACLU officially taking the position of Science Denier?

Didn’t want to give NBC a hit so I looked for another source.
http://triblive.com/local/allegheny/12918759-74/lawsuit-alleges-transgender-woman-repeatedly-assaulted-in-allegheny-county-jail
Previous charges also not specified other than “nonviolent”. My guess, prostitution. Photo at source.

So the constitution says if you wake up in the morning an “feel like a woman” and get arrested that day, you’ve got to be housed in the chick jail?

I Learn something new every day. Our constitution is awesome! /s

Silly you! Science is “fluid” when it comes to penis/vagina rules. The only place science is not fluid is when it pertains to evil white people heating up the erf.
