Domestic Violence Is Not a "Nuisance"

Domestic Violence Is Not a "Nuisance" | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Lakisha Briggs was nearly evicted from her home for involving the police one too many times when her boyfriend tried to beat her.

 

That’s because cities and towns nationwide are passing "nuisance ordinances." These measures force landlords to evict tenants who are involved in disorderly behavior – even if they are victims of domestic violence.

 

No one should face homelessness for calling the cops to stop domestic violence! Sign our open letter calling for the repeal of nuisance ordinances so that women like Lakisha aren’t punished for calling the police.

An Egyptian court has acquitted the first doctor ever brought to trial in Egypt on female genital mutilation charges that resulted in the death of 13-year-old Sohair al-Bata’a.

The doctor and Sohair’s father were both referred to trial after Sohair died in June 2013 at Raslan Halawa’s private medical clinic while undergoing an FGM operation at her father’s request.

"A private, family-requested autopsy shows that Michael Brown was shot at least six timestwice in the head — with all of the bullets striking him in the front."

...

“The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,” Mr. Crump said. “We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist

Better Treatment of Trans Women by Philly Police Could Have Averted Brutal Murder, Says Activist | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"We always seemed to really click together, personality-wise," Aamina Morrison says of Diamond Williams, whom she first met in a Philadelphia LGBT youth group 12 years ago. “Like the issues of oppression we shared or things that came up in her own transition. She didn't realize those little things she did for me right there helped me see the possibility for who I am today."

Williams was brutally murdered last month, her body dismembered and thrown in a field. A 43-year-old Philadelphia man named Charles Sargent, who has previously been charged with rape and aggravated assault, confessed to the crime and led the police to Williams's remains. He will be tried for murder.

Morrison is now co-director of the peer-led Trans-Health Information Project, which, along with other LGBTQ and social justice groups in Philadelphia, is demanding justice for Williams. They believe Williams was targeted because she was transgender and working in the sex trade. Bringing Sargent to trial isn’t enough, they say; they want changes to how police and the media respond to violence against members of the transgender community.

Morrison has her own reason to believe that if Philadelphia police treated transgender victims of violence better, the friend she remembers from her youth group would still be alive. She says that when she saw Sargent’s photograph in the press after his confession, “it immediately took me back to an incident I had with him."

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot Mic Such an infuriating issue should attract the ire of the feminist community, but so far there are mostly crickets.


Recent legislation regarding the forced sterilizations performed on incarcerated women in California prisons evokes a muted time in U.S. history when sexist, racist, classist and ableist eugenics policies were orchestrated by the state.
