A San Antonio police officer is in jail and accused of sexually assaulting a “transgender man,” according to WOIA.com.

i've read the article 3 times. what am i missing? did the assualt happen in san antonio (TX?) or in denver, CO?

was the cop a san antonio cop, or a denver cop? the article calls the assailant a san antonio police officer, yet the photo shows a denver PD badge.

i guess it doesn't make a difference, wrong is wrong no matter where it happens.

as for the san antonio media screwing up terminology and using improper pronouns... that's not a surprise. helloooooooo.. TEXAS!!
