ezs note:  Maybe I'm being too harsh, Ms. Calgaro. I do believe that you love your child.  But if your love is of a true kind, you must love your daughter, not a fantasy land.

ezs note:  Crap... on the one hand, I feel so badly for Ashley's friends and family.  On the other hand, if I had gotten to her in time, I would have said there's hope.  There's always hope.

I can't do anything for Ashley now, but I can do something for you.  If you live in New Zealand, there's a whole host of people you can call. They are listed at the end of the article. If you live in the United States, you can call Trevor Lifeline at 866-488-7386.  If you live in another country, type in "suicide hotline". Look first for a government agency - this way, you won't be duped by a "conversion therapy" line.  (Yeah, these are quacks.)

If you feel despair, get help!!!

Santa Ana transgenders speak out on police treatment (voiceofoc)

(more above)

ezs note:  There are a few police persons who treat victims rudely, unfortunately.   In this case, complain to the chief of police, or failing this, to a newspaper/newsblog.  The police will get all antsy over this, but, well, good.  Maybe they'll start doing their job for a change.
