14-Year Old FL Boy Pleads Not Guilty in Violent Murder of 13-Year-Old Cheerleader Tristyn Bailey

14-year-old Aiden Fucci pleaded not guilty to the vicious murder of 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey. WJXT in Jacksonville, Florida reported the boy’s public defender submitted a written not guilty plea on Thursday. Fucci was accused of murdering Bailey by allegedly stabbing her 114 times.  Prosecutors had already upgraded charges and filed a motion in order to charge Fucci as an adult with premeditated first-degree murder.

In a press conference last week, state attorney for Florida’s Seventh Judicial Circuit, R.J. Larizza, stated “I hope that parents will learn something from this, this vicious and brutal murder, and that is that you need to know what your kids are doing and what they are saying…Because while we might not be able to stop these brutal and vicious murders from happening, we ought to at least try.”

During a previous press conference on May 28, Larizza said Fucci “had told friends that he was going to kill someone and that it was imminent – within the next 30 days or within the month.” Apparently the young boy “indicated to witnesses that he was going to kill someone by taking them in the woods and stabbing them, which are certainly the facts of this case” added Larizza.

Bailey was reported missing by her family on May 9. On May 10 she was discovered by police in a wooded area near St. Johns, Florida. Fucci was arrested the very next day. According to a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office press release, Fucci was taken into custody after “admissions during questioning” and the discovery of Baily’s body.

After the boy was taken into custody, police looked into his social media posts, which eerily included a photo he took of himself from the back of a deputy’s car with the caption, “Hey guys, has inybody (sic) seen Tristyn lately.”

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
