New Report Exposes 'Widespread Failure' of US Police to Protect and Serve Transgender People

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

A new report published Tuesday exposes the "widespread failure" of police forces across the United States to adequately protect and serve transgender people, and offers model policies and best practices to rectify this "systemic neglect."

There is a widespread failure of American police departments to protect and serve the vast majority of Americans.

They protect and serve white people just fine - and let them off easy for all kinds of stuff. I know, because I’m white.

police in this white supremacist, racist, bigoted nation have never served the whole public from the beginning. read your history, the real history of this white man’s nation. no surprise here. First they slaughtered native peoples who had cared for this beautiful land, then they brought over black people to enslave and build for them only, then they served the needs of elites by protecting their corporations from the working men and women of all colors in this country, so why should any thinking person ever believe that they serve and protect us, does not matter who the us is. the latest book to read to really get a look at how ugly it has forever been is Greg Grandin’s THE END OF THE MYTH. ugly folks and we are still letting it go on. why are we not all in the streets to bring this rotten dirty empire down?
