Why would Moore risk HER life. I agree with you, but your pronoun use is incorrect and extremely offensive — Moore is a woman.

Why would a prostitute pepper spray a guy who turned her down? Is his story just that she’s irrational and randomly violent?

Or her story — that her unreleated arrest was for “walking while trans” (a common occurance for trans women assumed to be prostitutes on the basis of being a trans woman) and that he got violent when realizing she’s trans. As to whether a cop would ever beat a trans woman out of transphobia, then charge her with assault to cover it up? Why don’t you ask Officer Bridges McRae.

why would an officer risk his job and shove sombdoy for no reason…

And why would Moore risk his life by pepper spraying a cop, for no reason? Cops have been known to push people around with a sense of impunity.

Not every woman who is trans is a prostitute, and I say good on her for knowing enough to defend herself against a guy who approaches her in such a manner.

November 20th was transgender day of remembrance, for those who have died because people attacked them for simply being trans, or have killed themselves because people have made it impossible for them to live a proper and healthy life.

This guy wasn’t on duty, therefore he had no reason to “take down” this woman and if he got sprayed it’s for a reason. It usually is anyways.

What country do you live in? Cops are just as prejudiced(if not more) as everyone else. And, yes, they act on it.

She’s been accused and she disputes that. If I accuse you of stealing, are you a thief?

The story says that the two people (referred to as witness 1 and witness 2) with the officer agreed with the officer. Two others, one the person with Moore and an independent party recounted the same story as Moore; and obviously, someone with no personal stake is probably more reliable as a witness.

And one reason for an officer assualting someone? A bit of a power trip and thinking they can get away with it. That he might lose his job doesn’t really enter into it; it’s not exactly uncommon for people to commit a crime that might lose them their job.

Why did you not quote the two witnesses that were with the officer? It seems that the officers acount made more sense considering that the Moore was wearing short dress walking the street and is an admitted hooker. Soliciting an officer is against the law. why would an officer risk his job and shove sombdoy for no reason…

Trans people seem to piss off cops simply for being who they are. Physical descriptions of the people involved in this incident would have been helpful to determine if Ms. Moore actually had reason to be carrying pepper spray.
