Duanna Update

Remember Duanna Johnson, the trans prostitute beat down by police in Memphis? Well, since the video tape emerged, Johnson says she’s received a “tremendous” number of phone calls from trans folk people who claim cops beat them, too. Official records indicate a total of forty reported incidents, but Johnson and others suspect there’s more where that came from. Meanwhile, Johnson informed police officials that she’s filing a civil lawsuit, but will settle for a cool $1.3 million. [Bilerico and WREG]
