Attorney for murderer Rasheen Everett asks for light sentence saying transgender woman Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar's life didn't matter

The callous heartless lawyer for Rasheen Everett appealed to the judge at the sentencing hearing hoping that the judge shared his and his clients belief that all people are human, except transgender people.

New York Post: In a bizarre courtroom speech, a Queen defense attorney said the life of a murdered transgender prostitute wasn’t worth much — and argued that her convicted killer shouldn’t be punished as if he had killed someone “in the higher end of the community.”

“A sentence of 25 years to life is an incredibly long period of time judge,” John Scarpa said Thursday as he asked a judge to go easy on his client, Rasheen Everett, for killing hooker Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar in 2010.

“Shouldn’t that be reserved for people who are guilty of killing certain classes of individuals?”
Then, taking callousness to a new level, he said: “Who is the victim in this case? Is the victim a person in the higher end of the community?”

New York Post reports that Everett snickered during the emotional testimony by Amanda's family even winking at friends as he was led out of court..

Queens Supreme Court Justice Richard Buchter scolded Scarpa as he sentenced Everett to 29 years in prison.



VIVIRLATINO : Remembering Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar : “She Wasn’t a Loner, She Wasn’t a Throwaway”

The "bone headed attorney"
So who is this John Scarpa a man who would throw us away like trash?

During the trial he asked Everett's ex why she broke up with him. She told the jury it was because he tried to choke her, beat her up and imprisoned for a week before she got away and she had pictures to prove it with her.

The jury gasped and shook their heads at Scarpa's ineptitude. The New York Post summed up it nicely when they reported about the "Bonehead attorney outs client’s ‘assault’"

Video: Ten year old reacts to being told that some "blame" her parents for her being transgender

"I'm taking a stand. It will not happen here without a change in plumbing," said Delta School District 50J board member Kathy Svenson this week.

Svensons isn't backing down. She's demanding that 10 year old girls like Harriette Cunningham be castrated and 10 year old transgender boys be sterilized before she would allow them to attend her Delta Colorado school.

Forced sterilization amounts to nothing less than genocide

Kathy Svenson take a good look at this video. Rethink your morality.

ABOVE: Ten year old Harriette was born a boy “Declan”. Never wavering in who she is, Harriette knew early on she was meant to be a girl.
“I’ve always been a girl, even when I was considered a boy,” says ten-year-old transgender child, Harriette Cunningham. “In my dreams I was never a boy.”

Two and a Half Men: Alan falls for a Transgender Woman who used to be Paul

Synapse: Alan accompanies his niece Jenny who just came out to a gay bar where he unexpectedly meets Paula, who reveals she's a banker. After drinks they find themselves turned on and have a sexually charged conversation about banking and well, early withdrawals.
So far so good. Pretty much like lots of hook ups that most of have experienced?

But with talk like the outcome is inevitable. The next scene finds the two in bed after sex with Alan looking ever so satisfied, but inexplicably Paula has a perplexed look on her face.


Click here to watch the clip

Paula explains her trepidations "well there was something that I should have told you before we slept together" What a husband or herpes? gasps Alan "Well" Paula explains "there was another guy, Paul. You see for the first forty years of my life I was a man named Paul."

Que the transpanic ewww laugh track......

...the perfect set up for transpanic outrage......

Alan: Wow, you don't look forty.

LOL! Classy. Very very classy and funny.

According to reviews Alan is enamoured with Paula and her being trans isn't a factor in upcoming episodes. Of course we know they'll be treading the fine line between trans sesitivites and comedy.

cartermatt.com "Jenny decides to take Alan to a gay club to pick up women and he meets a woman named Paula that he clicks with. He brings her home and after sleeping together, Paula tells Alan that she used to be a man named Paul. We initially thought that Alan might be weird about the situation, but they have such a great connection that he decides to keep dating her. Paula quickly shows that she’s the alpha in the relationship, but Alan really doesn’t seem to have much problem with it."

Yes I know, another cis woman playing a trans person. WHY? And I know some trans peeps will say its up to us when or even if we divulge or trans history but this is a TV show and hopefully they will keep the show classy and forward looking.

We're still fine tuning society.
