Seems there’s more to the story about the “transgender teen” allegedly assaulted in an anti-transgender bias attack at an Arizona pool party. Turns out the “victim”, white male legal adult (18 years old) Dakota Kern had posted a Facebook video three days prior which showed him beating up a teenage black girl and dragging her around by her hair – apparently in retaliation for calling him “dude”.

Sandra Rose has the receipts:

“A gender confused teenager was attacked by a group of people at a Phoenix, Arizona pool party after he uploaded a video of himself beating a young black girl for calling him a “dude.”

Police say a group of about 20 people attacked 18-year-old Dakota Kern at a pool party on August 16 — about a week after he uploaded the video to his Facebook page.

Kern, who is white, is seen dragging a young black girl by her hair across the pavement and pummeling her about the face with his closed fist.

“This is what happened when b**** try me,” he captioned the video on his Facebook page.

“Tell yo’ mama to come my way. I’ll do that to yo’ mama too, b-tch,” he tells the girl in the video.

About a week later, Kern was spotted at a pool party by the girl’s family members.

Kern told a local news outlet that he was surrounded by people who yelled homophobic slurs at him.

He said he decided to leave when a man yelled, “Get it! Get it!”

“Then one of the guys, he ends up grabbing me by my head, grabbing me by my hair and then he hit me a few times,” Kern told CBS 5 News.

Kern was hospitalized with neck injuries after the attack. He has since been released.

A video shared on Facebook.com shows Kern being assaulted at the pool party.

The local media quickly portrayed Kern as the victim.

But Facebook users refused to take pity on him. “Well u beat up my granddaughter last week Karma ain’t no joke,” wrote one woman on Facebook.

In another post on Facebook, a man called Kern a coward. “U a whole man fight on a female & gon [sic] threaten her momma but not her dad…”

Many users questioned why Kern wasn’t arrested for assaulting the adolescent girl

Police say a 15-year-old boy was arrested and at least two others are being sought in the pool attack.”

While Kern has taken his Facebook post down, one of his victims uploaded receipts today. The poster states:

I would like to tell y’all that this transgender dude name Dakota Kern aka queen red have been harassing me for a long time and he legally drag me across the street by my hair calling me a bitch and hitting me in the head and told me my mama can get it too bitch and have my mama come her way bitch , but just let y’all know I’m only 17 years old and this transgender is 19 years beating me up calling me bitch and he littray slam me on the floor calling me bitch while he was hitting me in The face and funny thing is I was on my way to work and he decided to drag me and hitting me in the face calling me bitch like and comment if you think its fair for a grow man to be beating up a young black girl 🤘😣😫

Here is her video:

More receipts. In this one you can hear Dakota Kern threaten to beat up the victim’s mother:

From Dakota Kern’s Facebook page (now deleted):

It is very interesting that none of the mainstream media reports covering this “hate crime” mentions these very pertinent facts. Hmmmm.

An adult white man can batter a black female minor with impunity, posting and publicly celebrating the crime, and it’s not a hate crime as long as he “identifies as” a transwoman and claims the girl “misgendered” him  by using the generic term “dude”. Okayyyyy.

Turns out this creep was arrested two weeks ago on some other charge.

What a scumbag.

It’s hard to have sympathy for a guy who got roughed up at a pool party after committing these actions. File this one under “Don’t start none, Won’t be none.”

Pink News CEO Benjamin Cohen [ITV News]

Benjamin Cohen, CEO of Pink News, announced on Twitter that he believes any transwomen who has visible facial hair – even those who are legally “female”- should be charged and prosecuted as sex offenders if they use female change rooms.

The surprise announcement took place in an exchange with NewStatesman editor Helen Lewis, in response to her op-ed in The Times titled “A Man Can’t Just Say He Has Turned Into A Woman”. Lewis wrote the piece addressing the feminist backlash against UK’s proposed “self identification” Gender Identity process, which would allow any man at the stroke of a pen to be legally regarded as “female” to access women’s change rooms, scholarships, hospital wards, sports competitions, abuse shelters, jail cells, etc.

Benjamin Cohen, a gay anti-feminist activist who has used his platform to lobby against the rights of lesbians to hold female-only events on the grounds that they discriminate against the sexual rights of heterosexual males, initiated the exchange after publishing the following article on his Pink News site:

 

Benjamin Cohen’s Pink News article

Cohen then tweeted at Helen Lewis from his @benjamincohen account, asking “Why do people like @helenlewis always turn trans rights into “someone with a beard exposing their penis in the women’s changing room?” He included a screen cap with the following quote from her article:

“What the government proposes is a radical rewriting of our understanding of identity: now it’s a question of an internal essence- a soul, if you will. Being a woman or a man is now entirely in your head. In this climate, who would challenge someone with a beard exposing their penis in a women’s changing room?

That’s why feminists have raised the alarm over the move to self-identification, along with some older trans people who fear that “trendsters” will erode the goodwill they have worked hard to aquire.”

Helen Lewis responded, “Hi Ben, as a man I don’t expect you to get how much women value single-sex spaces for safety reasons. But I would expect you to listen.”

The Twitter exchange

Benjamin Cohen responded in no uncertain terms: he believes transwomen with visible facial hair should be prosecuted as sex offenders. He stated: “Your example” [of a male with facial hair disrobing in women’s change rooms] would still be indecent exposure, so why link it to trans rights?”

Legally female transwomen like prominent trans rights activists Danielle Muscato and Alex Drummond stand to be prosecuted for indecent exposure under Pink News CEO Benjamin Cohen’s views.

Danielle Muscato, legally “female” male who identifies as a transwoman.

 

Alex Drummond, legally “female” male who identifies as a transwoman.

 

People hit back after Cohen’s statement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Benjamin Cohen responded to comments by disappearing from Twitter. The title of his Pink News article was also changed:

GUILTY !!!!!!!!!

June 29, 2017

From the UK Daily Mail

From Jonathan Glover of the Spokesman-Review:

“More than 27 years after their bodies were first discovered, a Spokane jury found Donna Perry, 65, guilty on three counts of murdering Yolanda A. Sapp, Nickie I. Lowe and Kathleen A. Brisbois.

Perry, who has sat quietly throughout the two-and-a-half-week-long trial with headphones in, scribbling on a piece of legal notepad, stared forward silently as Superior Court Judge Michael Price read the verdict aloud. She spoke briefly with her attorneys before being handcuffed and taken from the courtroom.

Family of the three slain women released tears of joy and hugged one another as they walked into the court house hallway.

Prosecuting attorney Sharon Hedlund praised the hard work of her staff and police officers involved in the decades-long investigation.

“We know it was a tough case, and we are obviously pleased with the verdict,” she said. “We hope this gives the (victim’s) families some closure.”


   “Sentencing is set for 9:30 a.m. on July 24. Since Perry was also found guilty of the aggravating circumstance that the three murders were part of a common scheme or plan, she faces up to life in prison on each charge.”

Yolanda Sapp, Kathleen Brisbois, Nicki Lowe.

The Donna Perry serial killer trial started on the 9th. I’ve been posting updates in the previous post thread here:

After some regional coverage at the start of the trial, the last week has passed with no media coverage whatsoever (!) .

Tom Clouse of the Spokesman-Review finally posted an update last night:

“Attorneys have spent a week questioning retired police detectives, reviewing lost evidence and recounting raids that netted guns not connected to the killings of three women in 1990. But on Tuesday, prosecutors brought the fingerprint and DNA evidence that is the crux of the serial killer case against a transgender woman.

The triple murder trial of Donna R. Perry, 65, reached the point where witnesses began talking of the decades-old evidence that prompted prosecutors in 2014 to charge Perry with the killings of Yolanda A. Sapp, Nickie I. Lowe and Kathleen A. Brisbois.

The three women knew each other and lived in the same motel off of East Sprague Avenue, which has been Spokane’s traditional working zone for prostitutes.”

I will be posting daily trial updates as available in the comments below for those who are following the case.
