She is not only a child but an extremely damaged and troubled one at that. She is being treated like a murderer.

I'm signing this because this young woman has been abused and abandoned by the system that was meant to protect her. She has been neglected, segregated from positive human contact, and left open to numerous threats and harm while in the care of the state, and is now ensconced in horrible circumstances and under the looming cloud of future danger. This is the United States; we are supposed to be a people of tolerance living in a land of laws! Free this young woman, so that she might find a measure of both herself and the happiness she so richly deserves.

This is an injustice! Shame on the state for its continuance policing of transgender youth of color! This youth needs community support NOT continuance trauma and victimization by the state.

I have seen how being able to live as needed, according to their own recognized gender, can heal transgender people. It is ethically and morally wrong to imprison and treat such a person abusively, and will do nothing to change the situation - as she has stated, she needs therapeutic treatment help and support. Anything less is a failure of our system, and a failure of the compassion necessary for all peoples, including the most diverse among us.

I fail to understand how this is even legal. It violates her Sixth Amendment rights.

This child needs to get the right help and be placed in a safe environment. Sending her to an adult male prison will only turn her into what she/he is supposed to be protected from.
