      I signed this petition because “a nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” If we do not stand up against injustice, what does that say about us?

      Nobody deserves to be attacked, be you female, male, homosexual, transgendered, black, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, or different in any way. Now if this were a white male who acted in self defense and killed a black transgendered female, he would probably do no jail time, and they would hold a parade in his honor. The racism, sexism, homophobia, and hatred of anyone is is different in the United States is appalling! It would send a message of, we will not tolerate hatred of any kind, to the public, if you were to do justice and pardon CeCe, for acting in self defense!

      Defending yourself from attack, or that of your friends, should not be punished. Rather arrest the instigaters who harbor the hatred, before they kill another one of us.

      These proceedings are deeply, fundamentally wrong. On the heels of the Trayvon Martin case, this is disgusting. Zimmerman can kill a teenager armed only with skittles and iced tea under the guise of self-defense, but when a trans* woman of color is the victim of a hate crime, she suffers brutally at every turn at the hands of a system meant to help her. This injustice must not stand.
