Women’s Rights Group Asks Newsom To Stop Transgender Mixing Of Prisoners

The group says the law allows biological male criminals to “prey on women”

A California law allowing transgender inmates to choose the gender they are imprisoned as has received backlash from a women’s rights group which has pointed out that it allows biological male criminals to “prey on women.”

In a letter to Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom, the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) wrote, “The State of California is violating the civil rights of incarcerated women and subjecting them to serious physical, psychological, and emotional harm.”

The letter adds, “SB 132, which went into effect on Jan 1, 2021, has already resulted in dozens of male inmates being transferred to women’s correctional facilities at CCWF and CIW, with hundreds more on the way. On behalf of these incarcerated women, WoLF demands that the State of California and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation take immediate action to protect the women in its custody.”

“Under the law as written, there is no method to screen out males who genuinely self-identify as transgender from those who are using the system to prey on women,” the letter continues. “Even if sincere self-identification was the criterion for transfer, however, it would not mitigate or remove the danger posed to women. A 2009 report found 20% of trans-identified men in California are sex offenders, and 50% have committed crimes against persons. Based on the known criminal histories of the men who have been transferred thus far, this study appears to understate the problem. We’re informed that at least one of the trans-identified male prisoners is on death row, and a considerable number of the others are serving life sentences for brutal crimes.”

WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said, “We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions. He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”

According to WoLF, “Those running the prison system know how dangerous conditions have become for the women in California state custody. Many of the correctional officers have openly acknowledged that they expect the women will be raped and assaulted, there will likely be pregnancies, and, in general, the environment will be ripe for exploitation of the women and challenging to control. Some COs have privately expressed concern and have reportedly urged leaders to take immediate action to right this wrong. Conversely, at least one CO has used this situation to torment the women in his care, threatening to put men in their cells to rape them. The LA Times even reported that prison officials are already aware that men are pretending to identify as transgender so that they can access women’s facilities.”

California currently has 273 transfer requests, 266 are men at male institutions requesting transfer to female institutions, and only 7 are women at female institutions requesting to be transferred to male institutions.

A spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections told the Washington Examiner the transfer process includes “a thorough review of the incarcerated person’s history prior to and during incarceration, their crime, arrest and criminal history, trial and sentencing documentation, medical and mental health needs.”
According to Adams, however, many of the male transfers have been convicted of forcible rape. In their letter, WoLF states, “We demand the following:  Immediately halt transfers of male inmates to women’s facilities, and remove all-male inmates who have been transferred thus far; Halt the processing of applications for transfers pending a safety assessment and proper notice and comment period, and Barring that, segregate male inmates together and allow women to refuse sharing housing with male inmates.”

    These politicians have lost the common sense God gave them. You need to go to the prison that matches your body parts.

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
