THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Dee Dee Pearson’s killer was sentenced by a Jackson county (Mo.) judge to 30 years in prison. Kenyon Jones shot Pearson following a sexual encounter. Pearson died outside the building she was staying at.
Unidentified Pearson family member: “I have forgiven the young man, so justice do what they need to do. But I’m — just thank God that it’s over and I just hope that at this point we can stop killing one another.”
Jones said he killed Pearson during a sexual encounter after discovering she was transgender.
Although Pearson’s death is tragic, I’m happy to see that the judge handed down a severe sentence for the killing of a person of color — a group not always getting real justice for the disproportional violence and deaths occurring to them.
