SOUNDBITES —“I hope like hell some good comes out of this. We’ve had to deal with threats as we leave the courthouse and messages on my phone. People act like we took something from them. They took something from us! I want DeLee to get life without parole. Transgenders are human beings like anyone else. Who are we to say that people shouldn’t be who they want to be? Parents need to realize you can’t turn your kid away. You’re all they have and I knew that with Lateisha. If felt like as long as I supported her, she would know we were there for her and that’s what matters.” —Roxanne Greene, mother of transgender murder victim Lateisha Green, on the death of her daughter [Essence]
