There is a man roaming Western avenue from Hollywood to south Los Angles thought to be on foot or bike attacking targets of opportunity.
Who is the easiest target? Gay cross-dressing transvestite prostitutes. Not quite worthy of empathy from even the larger transgender and transsexual community and in this day of gay.com assimilation by acceptability, the easiest ignored and forgotten by LGB people as well.
This man researches his targets carefully. These are not all random acts of violence.
Lets make our LGBTQI family a little less inviting to him. Note to LAPD: Gender expression is what defines trans people, not sexual orientation. Might need to know that while forming a M.O. on this man.
The Western bandit is currently associated with the murder of one transgender woman an attempted armed robbery of one other and undefined violence against another. At least two of those incidents were within a few miles of numerous gay bars including one drag bar, GLAAD and the LGBT LA Center
The person who was murdered was at the the below google map picture location. She was misgendered diminutivly by the LA Times in this 2011 Homicide Report as:
