    LAPD will put transgender inmates in their own separate holding facility

    the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) announced Thursday major changes to the way the police will interact with the transgender community, including a separate holding facility where transgender inmates will be able to receive male and female clothing and special medical treatments like hormones, KTLA reports.

    Other changes include:

    Officers will be instructed to address transgender inmates by their preferred name if it's different than their birth name and to use gender pronouns appropriate to the inmate's gender self-identity.
    Requests to remove prosthetics and clothing that conveys gender identity, wigs, and cosmetics will only be made if it is also being asked of non-transgender inmates.
    Police will also no longer be permitted to pat down a transgender inmate for the sole purpose of determining his or her anatomic sex.

    In other news, LAPD will also require officers to immediately cease the use of the term "Alias", substituting it instead for "Nom de plume."

    I guess I don't have a problem with this. You put TGs in the general pop and you may as well draw a target on their backs. Yeah, they screwed up and are in jail, but doing that would be a short, brutal sentence that would end in a body bag.

    The only problem I have with this is the "hormone treatment" angle. If it's medically required, sure. But if it's just because Steve wants a pair of boobies, it's a waste of taxpayer money.

    Amen! It's simple. If they want to keep taking the drugs, stay out of jail.

    Only part of this I really have a problem with is that they won't require removal of "prosthetics". BS. Give a crook ANY method of sneaking a weapon or contraband in, they'll jump at it. Soon you'll get all sorts of inmates ordered by gangs to say they're "transgendered" with a "prosthetic" which is hollow and smuggling all sorts of stuff into the jail
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.
