NOTE: I don't generally change the titles. I can't help but find this title offensive and the story is sad. Nothing like a transsexual to help sensationalize a news story.

From what I read this incident is more widespread. There are more bigwigs involved. My condolences to Brenda's family and friends.

I agree Gennee,let's hope no information is with-held for some reason or another.Considering hearing incidents like this every so often including government officials,it's time governments worldwide admit the diversity the world has and has laws in place protecting everyone.

I feel it to be another injustice with the media as well as the goverment, they seem to always turn things like this into some sort of justice for this persons way of life, they will sweep this under the rug like so many in the past due to the political ties i am affraid for this because when they do such things they simply justify the vilinisation of citizens and glorify them selves.. Maybe a change will happen and it will all come out into the light and those involved will be brought to justice , maybe...

It seems to me this is another example of how (almost) everybody needs to WIN. So often, winning is so important that morality/ethics/fairness/justice aren't considered.

I think your absolutely correct we all would like to win but if winning means taking anothers life and crushing others in the process I think I could use the defeat to my advantage in an more benificial manner... No one deserves to die for my bennifit.

Politics, Italian style . . . though not as stylish as in days gone by. How is it that the europeans get all the really juicy sex scandals, whereas most of our scandals involve someone's hand in the cookie jar? Our few sex scandals generally result in embarrassment more than anything else.
