Transwoman Hate Crime Victim Needs Our Help
After an unidentified transwoman tried to use the bathroom at a Baltimore McDonald's, two patrons started attacking her in full view of other customers and employees.These employees can be heard on the video shouting words of encouragement to the attackers. Its time we DEMAND that justice be served and that EVERY McDonald's employee on duty at this time, be terminated AND charged with accesory to a Hate Crime ( at the very least ).
The April 18 assault, took place at a McDonald's location in the 6300 block of Kenwood Avenue in Rosedale, Maryland, a Baltimore suburb, according to the Baltimore County Police Department. A 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile in connection with the assault, charges are still pending against an 18-year-old woman. "The incident remains under investigation and the State's Attorney's Office is reviewing the case," added investigators. McDonald's has release a statement on their website concerning this incident which can be viewed at http://www.aboutmcdonalds.com/mcd/media_center/Media_Contacts.html .
This is not enough! The employees that stood by ( and encouraged! ) this attack should also be terminated immediately and face some type of criminal charges...this was a HATE CRIME, after all. Please sign this petition in hopes that justice can and will prevail for this transwoman.
Also please contact the Maryland States Attorney's Office - Violent Crimes Division at 410-887-6610 and express your concerns in this matter.
