India's police response to LGBT activists cries for mercy “Stop us if you can.”

According to the Human Rights Watch there is a crisis in India's Girinagar neighborhood of Bangalore. GLBT activists are being detained without being allowed to rest, access to food, water or the use of bathrooms. GLBT activists are being verbally, physically and sexually assaulted by police.

On October 20, 2008, police arrested five hijras (working-class, male-to-female, transgender people), detained representatives of a nongovernmental organization trying to negotiate their release, and subsequently attacked a group of peaceful demonstrators protesting the arrests. A total of 42 people were detained. The negotiators later informed Human Rights Watch that police officials told them higher-level authorities had ordered a campaign to arrest hijras on serious charges.

The response by police is "Stop us if you can"

We will stop you.

Whip me, Beat me, Chain me for 20 years, give me $50,000.00

Where does rational thought end and fantasy begin?

HRC's version of reality is spoken by one of the newest popularly acceptable model of transgenderism, a Trans-male spokes model Deigo Sanchez. According to Diego's version everything is cool with HRC and trans folks ever since HRC provided the Massachusetts Political Coalition with $50,000.00!

The ENDAblog however takes very strong exception to this claim in a post titled "LIAR".

Lets assume transgender people are actual living breathing human beings for a moment, with hopes, dreams, religious convictions, jobs, homes and partners. HRC gave that money to the MTPC for a smoke screen because Vermont passed gender inclusive protection laws in spite of it's proximity to Barney Franks Massachusetts.

That's reality. HRC has been screwing us and they have you to announce that all is well. No All is NOT RIGHT.

Thank you ENDAblog.
