    Default Transgender jail treatment

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...ints-1.2564367

    I wonder how the government is going to deal with this as more cases like this arise?

    If it is indeed solitary does it matter? I think not.

    They can't be deprived of their rights. If they have followed the rules within the prison, how can they be subjected to solitary?

    They CAN and should be deprived of their rights in this instance, so that they don't get killed.

    Tha's just the way it is in jail.

    Then keep the undertakers on speed dial.
    Poor joke sorry. Igor raises an excellent point I had for what I suspect would be seen as myopic and bigoted not thought of.

    It is beyond me how anyone identifying as transgender can live in the Sault.

    And now you are comparing all the residents of Sault Ste. Marie to the jail population.

    It's a bit of a novel idea, but if you know you are a transgender person, and you know jail will be particularly brutal for you, there is a simple solution, that fits for all situations; just don't break the law!

    well I did leave the hole of Ontario but I do still hate the place, I hope the city of Sault Ste. Marie burns to the ground, it is a poison that continues to infect the rest of the world.

    Wow! You really do have a problem! I can't believe you would say such a thing. You are just mean!

    Stop beating around the bush, man. What are you really trying to say?
