    WeHo Sheriff’s Station to Address Hate Crimes at Trans Quarterly Meeting

    - Advertisement -

    The City of West Hollywood and West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station are hosting a Transgender Community Quarterly Meeting on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, from 2pm-4pm at the West Hollywood Aquatic & Recreation Center, at 8750 El Tovar Place.

    The session will be a crucial discussion on “Addressing Hate Crimes and Law Enforcement Responses” with special guests from the FBI and LASD Hate Crimes Taskforce. Guest speakers will include Victoria Sanchez (Special Agent, FBI) and Det. Emmanuel Cortez (Major Crimes Bureau, LASD). The meeting is an opportunity to Explore the unique challenges the transgender community faces from hate crimes and examine law enforcement’s targeted strategies to combat these injustices.

    Last week, the TransLatin@ Coalition (TLC), a prominent advocate for Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex (TGI) Latinx communities, reported that they have become the target of a series of bomb threats and hate mail directed at its members and facilities. Representatives are calling it reprehensible acts marking a dangerous escalation in the ongoing violence and discrimination faced by TGI communities globally.

    The organization reports that last Thursday, bomb threats directed at the trans organization were reported to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), prompting swift action. The LAPD conducted a thorough security sweep of the TLC offices the following day. Alarmingly, the threats extend to specific dates into June, raising concerns of sustained harassment.

    In a disturbingly connected effort, their offices have also been bombarded with hate mail. The organization’s leadership, including President/CEO Bamby Salcedo and Vice President/COO Maria Roman Taylorson, have received hateful messages disseminating anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, criticizing the Democratic Party, and employing religious language to vilify the TLC’s mission.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in this important conversation. If you have any questions, please contact Lt. Lapkin at (310) 855-8850.

    The LASD West Hollywood Station provides law enforcement services for the City of West Hollywood and the unincorporated Universal CityWalk.

    The West Hollywood sheriff’s station is located at 780 N. San Vicente Blvd. To learn more, visit: https://lasd.org/west-hollywood/.

    Will crimes (allegedly) perpetrated by certain trans persons, one of whom is out of custody on a felony, be addressed?

    Seriously❓ Minor hissy fits do NOT rise to the lever of well planned & organized potentially lethal hate crimes perpetuated by professional criminal terrorists❗ Right-wing terrorists like the proud boys have already come to West Hollywood & San Francisco in the past and have committed violent hate crimes.

    A certain trans “activist” has been charged with felony assault. A few days later AJ Vicente spoke at a City meeting and lied about the incident in which she was involved on February 15. Vicente and accomplice assaulted a black man. Once the video of the incident that contradicted the claims Vicente made was released to the public she not attended West Hollywood City meetings to bully anyone.

    It would be nice if you cited some credible sources like I’ve done in the links. I’m NOT the least bit surprised to system is on hair trigger to charge unpopular minorities with serious felonies. They’ve done it to me numerous times with ZERO convictions. In stark contrast the proud boys have committed numerous hate crimes and violence including the January 6th riot that should rise to the level of domestic terrorism
