JUSTICE FOR KANSAS CITY TRANSGENDER MURDER VICTIM!!!



Today there was a verdict in one of the most tragic murder cases in Kansas City last year. A person was in the process of getting their life together and overcoming incredible odds but was tragically gunned down on a local street following a confrontation.

Today there was a guilty verdict

An important statement:

From The Kansas City Anti-Violence Project:

"Today, Kenyon Jones was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the murder of Dee Dee Pearson on Christmas Eve of last year. In an effort to get his sentenced reduced, the defense attorney attempted to argue "trans panic", stating that Kenyon James shot Dee Dee because they had a relationship and he was unaware that she was a transgender woman. The judge was not swayed by the appalling, victim blaming tactics of the defense and issued a sentence 5 years longer than the initial proposed sentence of 25 years."

The reporting of the incident created a firestorm that's best summed up in this CampKC article:

Media Should Show More Respect in Reporting About Killing

I was at the vigil following the murder and I learned a great many things . . . Mostly that Kansas City is often home to horrible cruelty but can also be a place of great compassion that crosses demographic lines.

Tony? Being a cross dressing prostitute does not make a person "transgender".

Really? No mercy, not even for a dead person?

That's a pretty tough game you're running @ 7:15.

Sorry for the dead Trans or Cross gender. Sometimes bad things happen to really confused people.

The punishment is not death. We should hope that KC offers some mercy for this city full of sinners.

"Transgender" is an umbrella term that covers people from fetishistic transvestites to transsexuals. Dee Dee was living as a woman and had for some time. Finding employment as a transgender person is very difficult - and, although there are laws in KCMO and Jackson County about discriminating in employment based on gender identity and/or expression, there aren't any penalties for do so.

According to some of Dee Dee's friends, Kenyon Jones knew that Dee Dee was a transgender woman.

Darnell "Dee Dee" Pearson was a cross dressing faggot who sold his body illegally for sexual services.

Darnell died as a direct result of his deception and illegal activities.

And 9:08? There are NO laws against discrimination against cross dressers. I can tell you 100% of the time that I will not hire someone who is a cross dresser, and there is not a damn thing that anyone can do about it.

10:49, you need to read the laws. In the City of Kansas City, there are very specific laws. Maybe in whatever toothless hick town you hail from there aren't. In which case, it's your right to do as you please.

KC rids itself of one queer and one coon. Natural selection for the WIN!

Damn shame that lawyers made money off it and taxpayers had to foot the bill.

Moral of the story: If you think your sex organs hurt your feelings just try being dead.
