CeCe McDonald Pleads Guilty to Man 2

jellyfish-dance:

CeCe McDonald took a plea deal. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it. 2nd Degree Manslaughter with a recommended 41-month sentence. The judge told her that she “unlawfully endangered” her attacker. You better believe that anyone who slashes my face with a bottle is going to get “unlawfully endangered.” I’m so tired of queer and trans* people (especially queer/trans* people of color) being punished for defending themselves.

Note she will almost certainly spend her sentence in a mens prison.
