  1. “She had reportedly been involved in an incident that started when she was harassed and physically assaulted at a gas station, and allegedly ended when she hit one of the attackers with her car while she was fleeing from them. The arrest report the Chicago Police Department ( CPD ) filed says she told the arresting officer, “I was the one that was in the car accident.” The police used her birth name of Darveris and male
    pronouns in the arrest report that charged Love with aggravated battery, driving on a revoked license and driving without insurance.”

    I don’t know enough about this case to make an informed decision as to innocence, or a claim of self-defense.

    I’m assuming Love was in the car alone when he was leaving the gas station. If Love was in the car, how could he say that he was in immediate danger? Why couldn’t Love lock the doors and use a cell phone to call for help?

    Why was Love driving on a revoked license and driving without insurance?

    1. Lots of poor people drive on revoked licenses and/or without insurance. Those facts aren’t invitations to be attacked and don’t indicate one if guilty of attempted murder.

  2. This is what the linked article says,

    “While on the city of Chicago’s West-side, she and a friend were accosted by a barrage of slurs and epithets at a nearby gas station. Two neighborhood men violently harassed the young woman and company, yelling that she was not welcome in her own community because she is transgender. Refusing to be berated by speaking up for herself, Eisha was struck in the face by one of the men. She proceeded
    to fight back, the result: the accompanying man called for back up.”

    If this happened, then it was wrong. I agree completely, but isn’t it true that Love got into the car. Why not lock the doors and use a cell phone to call 911? Did Love have to run over a man as a means of self defense, or as a way of escape? I don’t know the answer. Does anyone know the answer?

    I don’t agree with the trumped up attempted murder charges. To me, this is outrageous. It doesn’t appear as if Love intentionally planned on running down a man, and Love finally turned himself in. It was a heated argument, and Love panicked. By the way, the man who was struck by the car driven by Love lost his leg.

    “At the urge of her mother, she eventually turned herself in. Here, she was to discover that her attacker was not only injured during her attempt to escape, but the injury cost him his leg. It had to be removed. ” Instead of stepping on the gas pedal, Love could have tried to slowly drive the car away.

    Were charges ever filed against the person or persons who allegedly hit and assaulted Love? If not, why not? Did Love receive any injuries? This is strange to me.

    As to, “Lots of poor people drive on revoked licenses and/or without insurance”, it’s still illegal. Since Love didn’t have any insurance, the man who lost his leg is S.O.L. unless his insurance covers the medical costs. Why was Love’s drivers license revoked? Most states don’t do this unless the driver has a long history of driving impaired, or doing something that could endanger other drivers.

    Again, what were Love’s injuries? I don’t know what to think about this case.
