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.
