Two Seattle women arrested following transphobic rampage

Artega Jackson Marjorie MarpleLEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — After being videotaped attacking and chasing down a woman they thought to be transgender, Seattle police arrested Artega Jackson and put out a warrant for the arrest of Marjorie Marple for an attack that occurred on June 11th according to a report on KIRO-TV.

The unnamed victim captured the attack on her phone after Jackson and Marple accosted her on a Seattle street. After the victim began recording, one of the women pulled off the victim’s wig and then began getting physically aggressive, kicking and punching her, calling her a “man” and “tranny”. The victim did manage to get away from the women.

Both women have an extensive felony criminal history.

While it was not disclosed if the victim was actually transgender, the perpetrators should be charged with a hate crime because their intent was to harm a trans person.

  1. Great, not only did they arrest the two for hurting a transgender person, the two have records that will pot them behind bars for a long while. Glad to hear it.

  2. YO TAMBIEN ESTOY DE ACUERDO QUE ESTOS DELINCUENTES SE LES CASTIGUE, NOSOTRAS LAS MUJERES TRANS, SOMOS PERSONAS, SERES HUMANOS.

  3. Have they both been arrested.
