DC Cop Begins Weekend By Drunkenly Shooting Trans Women

Washington, DC, police officer Kenneth Furr decided to kick off this past weekend by allegedly driving drunk, having a minor collision in front of a CVS and then shooting at two trans women, all while off-duty.

“This is the second case where an off-duty police officer has attacked a member of the transgender community,”  Jason Terry of the DC Trans Coalition told Metro Weekly, adding that the District has the highest number of murders of trans people in the country, based on statistics gathered from the Transgender Day of Remembrance Project.

Though Furr has been charged with driving while intoxicated and assault with a dangerous weapon, authorities have yet to figure out why all this went down, and bias-crime charges could still be filed.

Seriously, what’s going on with DC cops giving LGBTs such a hard time?
