WATCH: If Someone Yelling “Tranny Faggot” Before Shooting You in the Arm Isn’t a Hate Crime, We Don’t Know What Is

Even though the entire country of Canada happens to have a lower crime rate than any Wal-Mart parking lot, hate and homophobia are still present, and Elle Noir has the shot wound to prove it. The transgender performer is the victim of what Halifax police aren’t calling a hate crime.

Noir claims that the two men who shot her in the arm came to her door impersonating police officers and demanding to be let in by yelling “tranny faggot.” Police are weary of labeling it a hate crime because they have suspicions to believe this may have been a drug-related crime, something Noir denies.

“The area that I live in, yes, it might be drug infested. Yes, it might be a bad area to live in. But just because you live in a bad area it doesn’t mean you are the bad person,” Noir told CBC in a video interview.

      Weary: feeling or showing tiredness, esp. as a result of excessive exertion or lack of sleep.

      So… the police are tired of calling it a hate crime?

      (sorry, but I can’t resist)

      Yep, it’s the old transgender-person-assumed-to-be-drug-addict-or-prostitute-and-therefore-ignored routine again.
