Transgender ‘Rights’ vs. Common Sense

Posted on | July 17, 2022 | Comments Off on Transgender ‘Rights’ vs. Common Sense

Say hello to Demetrius Minor, who was 16 when he was sentenced to 30 years in prison after a plea bargain on manslaughter and carjacking charges in 2011 in Camden County, New Jersey:

A Gloucester Township teenager has admitted to killing his foster father in July.
Demetrius Minor, 16, pleaded guilty Friday to aggravated manslaughter in the July 11 death of Theotis Butts. Minor also pleaded guilty to carjacking in connection with a May 29 incident in which he ordered a couple out of their Pontiac Grand Prix at gunpoint and drove away with their vehicle . . .
The May carjacking incident began shortly before 5 p.m. when Minor approached a couple as they entered their vehicle near their Gloucester Township home. Minor approached the couple and pointed a Glock .45 in the face of the woman. The couple’s infant child was in the car at the time of the incident, and they were able to get the baby out of the car before Minor sped away in their car. The woman’s husband tried to chase Minor in another vehicle but lost track of him. About two hours later in Bridgeton, local police officers who had been alerted to the car theft spotted the Grand Prix and pursued. That pursuit ended when Minor jumped out of the vehicle and escaped.
A warrant had been issued for Minor’s arrest in connection with the carjacking when he broke into Butts’ home on the first block of Hemlock Drive in Gloucester Township on July 11. Butts, a 67-year-old retiree, had taken Minor in from the foster system, though Minor was no longer living there. According to township police records, Minor had burglarized the home numerous times after moving out. Minor stabbed Butts several times and fled to New York City.

These are truly heinous crimes, and this background should be kept in mind when you read about the self-declared “transgender” inmate now calling himself “Demi” Minor:

A transgender woman behind bars at a New Jersey women’s prison impregnated two fellow inmates, prompting officials to move her to a different facility, a report revealed Saturday.
Demi Minor, 27, was moved last month from the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women to the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility — a prison for young adults in Burlington County, a New Jersey Department of Corrections spokesman told
Minor, who is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter, is in a vulnerable unit in the new facility where she is the only woman, the spokesman said.
Minor wrote in a blog post on the website Justice 4 Demi on July 15 that she was placed on suicide watch at the new facility “due to the fact that I had hung myself in the van.” She claimed guards denied her request to be strip-searched by a female DOC officer.
“[NJDOC] have violated my right to be safe and free from sexual harassment, by putting me in one of the most violent youth Correctional facilities,” Minor wrote. “While living here at GYSC, I have found my self (sic) under attack by young inmates who are immature and just plain ignorant towards a person like me.”
She said she was briefly transferred to New Jersey State Prison, where she “was called he and him well over 30 times,” adding, “this has not happened to me in years being referred to primarily as a man.”
An earlier post stated that Minor was forcibly removed from the female prison and beaten during the transfer. The DOC declined to comment on the accusations but told it was investigating.
“NJDOC cannot comment on any active investigations,” the agency said. “The Department has zero tolerance for abuse, and the safety and security of the incarcerated population and staff are of critical importance.”
Minor’s move comes months after it was revealed that she had impregnated two inmates while locked up at the female prison after engaging in “consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person.”
In 2021, New Jersey enacted a policy to allow prisoners to be housed in accordance with their preferred gender identity. The policy, which must be in place for at least a year, was part of a settlement from a civil rights suit brought by a woman forced to live in men’s prisons for 18 months.
The DOC told it still operates under the policy but “the department is currently reviewing the policy for housing transgender incarcerated persons with the intention of implementing minor modifications.”
Housing decisions, the spokesman said, “are made within the parameters of the settlement agreement which requires consideration of gender identity and the health and safety of the individual.”
Minor will be eligible for parole in 2037, according to the outlet.

Notice that New Jersey did not defend the “civil rights” lawsuit in court, but rather reached an out-of-court settlement, so that the prison policy is not guided by any actual court ruling. There is no judge’s decision we can cite as responsible for this lunacy. Instead, it seems, New Jersey officials simply outsourced their prison policy to the ACLU and, gosh, who could have foreseen that this would produce bad results? Unexpectedly!
