ezs note:  One thing that transgender women and men might want to try is self-defense classes.  (See the previous day's article, "Kelly Herron slams group using her attack in anti-transgender bathroom campaign".)  Yeah, it might be nice to have the police around, but we must be realistic.  Some larger cities and towns offer classes at a very low or no cost to you.

2 Transgender Women Killed in New Orleans Within 48 Hours: Police

Chyna Gibson and Ciara McElveen

ezs note:  Sadly, yet another transgender woman has been murdered.  Her name was Ciara McElveen.  While I have no doubt that members of the New Orleans Police Department do their work very hard, it all seems so bootless.  Transgender women do have a right to attend  concert, go to a bar, restaurant, or coffeeshop, or just enjoy an evening stroll without suffering the, ahem, annoyance of being raped or murdered.  Can we see what might be done more proactively?  Thanks.

ezs note:  New Orleans police caught a break by capturing a picture of the vehicle involved in the killing of Chyna Gibson.  However, the person remains at large.  Please, look at the car carefully.  It's a black sedan, (possibly a Camaro).  It's hard to tell from the angle, but the car might have tinted windows.  If you see it, please call the New Orleans Police Department at 504-658-5300. C'mon, let's put this vermin behind bars!
