Seattle Hate Crime (USA)

we front

Seattle police have arrested Artega Jackson and have a warrant to arrest Marjorie Marple for allegedly attacking a woman they thought was transgender. The victim told police she was photographing a garbage problem on 3rd Avenue and Virginia Street around 2 a.m. on June 11.

She said Jackson and Marple accosted her because they thought she was photographing them. The victim started recording video on her iPhone and one of the suspects started yelling. Court documents also said the suspects pulled the victim’s wig from her head and then called her a man and a transsexual.

Sgt. Sean Whitcomb of the Seattle Police Department said the suspects became more aggressive when they thought the victim was transgender. The victim told police she was kicked and punched, but was eventually able to retreat into a nearby apartment lobby.

Washington State’s malicious harassment law provides that a person is guilty of malicious harassment if he or she maliciously and intentionally commits one of the following acts because of his or her perception of the victim’s sexual orientation (which includes gender identity):

(a) Causes physical injury to the victim or another person;

(b) Causes physical damage to or destruction of the property of the victim or another person; or

(c) Threatens a specific person or group of persons and places that person, or members of the specific group of persons, in reasonable fear of harm to person or property. The fear must be a fear that a reasonable person would have under all the circumstances. For purposes of this section, a “reasonable person” is a reasonable person who is a member of the victim’s race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation, or who has the same mental, physical, or sensory handicap as the victim. Words alone do not constitute malicious harassment unless the context or circumstances surrounding the words indicate the words are a threat. Threatening words do not constitute malicious harassment if it is apparent to the victim that the person does not have the ability to carry out the threat.

Query what happens to women who feel that they are being filmed by a man (or threatened by a man) and take action in response. It seems that the women here took action against the victim not because they perceived her to be transgender, but because they perceived her to be a man filming them without their consent. Washington State bans voyeurism; it is unclear that this statute would apply as it appears the women were out in public.

  1. I don’t know enough about this particular incident to make any comments. Having said this, why aren’t females included in hate crimes legislation, and why does it only go one way?

    Didn’t this happen in Washington State? In the spirit of fairness, hate crimes should be tacked onto the Douglas, “Donna”, Perry three first degree murder charges. The three women were murdered based on their gender.

    If we carefully read the Affidavit in the Perry murder case, it should be clear to any rational person that Douglas Perry has some serious issues with women. He has repeatedly made statements about how much he hates women. It’s an irrational deep seated hatred.

    If found guilty, there was no reason why he would murder these women other than his deep seated hatred of women. Was this a hate crime? Absolutely. Since transgender activists constantly tell us that sex and gender are the same thing, it could be construed as a hate crime. Isn’t “gender identity” included in hate crimes legislation in states that have these laws? If sex is the same thing as gender as we have been told, then this definitely could be viewed as a hate crime. So, in the spirit of fairness, hate crimes should be tacked onto the three murder charges.

    In the Affidavit (see the link above), a detective interviewed someone who talked with Douglas Perry.

    “Perry explained to (Blanked out) that the reason Perry killed these women was because Perry couldn’t breed and the women had the ability to have children and they were wasting it being ‘pond scum’.”

    This is also in the Affidavit,

    “A consent search of his vehicle revealed…”attorney papers which said that Douglas R. Perry had a gender psychosis disorder where he does not like females”. There were other papers found in the vehicle showing the proper steps in getting a sex change”.

    Please keep in mind that Perry underwent sex reassignment surgery in Thailand. I don’t think the surgeons there really care if the patient has a letter from a therapist or not, or if the individual has been thoroughly assessed and diagnosed. Anyone can fly to Thailand for surgery as long as he or she can come up with the necessary money. I doubt if a thorough psychological assessment of Perry was ever carried out prior to the sex reassignment surgery. People are making the false assumption that Perry “always felt like a woman”, whatever this is supposed to mean, instead of looking at the facts that show that Douglas Perry was a seriously disturbed individual who harbored a deep seated hatred of women. His peculiar sexual fetish of viewing himself as a “woman” couldn’t hide his underlying hatred of women. I would go as far as to say that his belief that he is “Donna” is part of his deranged overall mental state. It sickens me to no end when Douglas Perry is referred to as “she” or “her” when Perry describes women and their reproductive capacity to give birth to children as “pond scum”.

    If three transgender identified persons were killed because the accused said they were “pond scum” who needed to die, hate crimes could possibly be tacked onto the charges. As I understand it, there is no statute of limitations on murder. Does this include hate crimes associated with murder? I’ve always supported the inclusion of transgender identified people in hate crimes legislation along with gay men, lesbians, and people of color. If Washington State has hate crimes legislation that includes “gender identity”, then I firmly believe that hate crimes charges should be added to the three Douglas, “Donna”, Perry murder charges.

  2. Washington State’s malicious harassment law provides that a person is guilty of malicious harassment if he or she maliciously and intentionally commits one of the following acts because of his or her perception of the victim’s sexual orientation (which includes gender identity):

    (a) Causes physical injury to the victim or another person;

    (b) Causes physical damage to or destruction of the property of the victim or another person; or

    (c) Threatens a specific person or group of persons and places that person, or members of the specific group of persons, in reasonable fear of harm to person or property. The fear must be a fear that a reasonable person would have under all the circumstances. For purposes of this section, a “reasonable person” is a reasonable person who is a member of the victim’s race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation, or who has the same mental, physical, or sensory handicap as the victim. Words alone do not constitute malicious harassment unless the context or circumstances surrounding the words indicate the words are a threat. Threatening words do not constitute malicious harassment if it is apparent to the victim that the person does not have the ability to carry out the threat.

    If sex is the same thing as gender identity which we have been told time and time again, then additional charges should be added to the Douglas, “Donna”, Perry triple murder charges. If found guilty, there was no reason to murder these women. They were murdered based on their gender and ability to have children. Perry is rather candid about why he felt compelled to murder these women and dump their bodies on a river bank. In the Affidavit (see the link above), a detective interviewed Perry’s cell mate.

    “Perry explained to (Blanked out) that the reason Perry killed these women was because Perry couldn’t breed and the women had the ability to have children and they were wasting it being ‘pond scum’.”

    The way that these women were murdered leaves no doubt in one’s mind as to how Perry felt about these women, and women in general. One victim had several blows to the head and had three broken ribs. They were all shot from close range. If three transwomen were murdered in cold blood because the killer thought they were “pond scum”, trans activists and their attorneys would be all over it.

    Again, I support the inclusion of transgender identified persons in hate crimes legislation, but it shouldn’t go only one way. That is, it’s only a hate crime if the victim is a male who ‘identifies as a woman”, but it’s not a hate crime if the victim is a female.
