THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — I’ve been following this story since the incident first occurred. Kenneth Furr, a Washington DC police officer who was convicted of assault last October in a bizarre incident which found him standing on the hood of a car firing though the windshield at the trans occupants of the car, was recently sentenced.

Full background story on the shooting incident here: http://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/update-guilty-verdictdc-cop-who-opened-fire-on-transwomen-while-standing-on-hood-of-car-to-begin-shortly/

D.C. Superior Court Judge Russell Canan sentenced Furr to time served, but he does face a number of probation conditions and is currently out of jail. Furr has apparently been suspended for a while now, and the DC police say there is a process for firing cops with felonies, but didn’t comment further.

My previous comments that he was no longer a DC cop may have been premature. Apparently Furr was just suspended from the force pending a final court decision.

I’m not so sure much justice was served here, but on the other hand no one was killed and we have a convicted cop from an area where trans people have been getting the short end of the justice stick.

  1. Disgusting, just a wrist slap. Anyone else (who isn’t wealthy) would be locked away for years.

  2. Another misogynist ass macho bully with a gun and the law backing him. If he had not been a police officer and these were not ‘trans*women’ the court would have thrown the book at him.

    Justice is *not* served.

  3. well, I really have no words to express how i feel about abusive law enforcement and correctional officers having been the subject of their abuse over the years so I will just say this as long as we have a judicial system where the concept of justice is JUST US the socially marginalized and disenfranchised citizens of this country will continue to be abused by those in power. This decision is the Judges fault. The officer should have been charged with attempted murder!

  4. Thanks for the comments. The outrage expressed here is understood.

  5. Fck cps
    All gender-cops are bastards AGCAB!
