Memphis police Caught on tape beating transgender woman

A newly released video shows two Memphis police beating a transgender woman with hand cuffs wrapped around their knuckles. One “officer” is seen holding the woman down while the other repeatedly struck her in the face causing a bleeding gash to open. This violent assault occurred while the woman was in police custody.

The fact that the victim is transgender sends a crystal clear message. Pass the hate crimes bills that would severely punish these two criminals.
