Black Trans Woman Merci Mack Shot to Death in Dallas
Merci Mack, a 22-year-old Black transgender woman, was found shot to death Tuesday in Dallas.
A passerby called police and emergency personnel after noticing Mack lying unresponsive in the parking lot of an apartment complex about 6:15 a.m., TV station KXAS reports. Dallas Fire-Rescue workers pronounced her dead at the scene. Neighbors had heard gunshots in the area about 5 a.m.
Dozens of Mack’s friends posted messages of sorrow and remembrance on her Facebook page. “My heart is very heavy, Merci you will be truly missed, I am going miss arguing with you, laughing, singing dancing and mostly watching them fine Men!” one wrote.
Over the last five years, more trans people have died by violence in Texas than in any other state, according to The Dallas Morning News, and almost half of those homicides have been in Dallas. Nationwide, Mack’s death is at least the 19th homicide of a trans person this year, with most of the victims being Black or Latinx.

Brayla Stone, Black Trans Teen, Killed in Apparent Hit
Local police in Arkansas are treating the death of a 17-year-old transgender Black woman as a homicide. The body of Brayla Stone was found in a car on a walking path in the Little Rock suburb of Sherwood last Thursday, and a person on social media later claimed he was paid five thousand dollars to kill her. Stone is the eighth trans person violently killed in the last seven days.
“Brayla Stone is the 8th transgender person killed in the last seven days,” David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, said in a statement. “Brayla Stone was seventeen years young when someone murdered her because we live in a society where it is not yet explicit that when we say BlackLivesMatter we mean all Black lives, which includes Black trans women and girls.”

5 retired priests arrested after allegations they sexually assaulted minors
The abuse is alleged to have occurred while the men were teachers at a high school in Rigaud and at two institutions in Matane and Pohénégamook.
In 2016, the religious order agreed to a $30-million payment to students who attended the Montreal Institute for the Deaf.
In 2012, a number of former students said they were sexually assaulted by priests who worked there.
At least 60 deaf students were assaulted by members of the religious community and lay people working at the school between 1940 and 1982. The school changed its name to the Institut Raymond-Dewar in 1984.
About 270 alleged victims have joined a class action lawsuit against the order.

Jayne Thomas, Trans Woman Killed by Police, Is 15th Violent Trans Death
Jayne Thompson, 33, was gunned down by a Colorado State Patrol trooper in May, making her the 15th known violent death of a transgender or gender non-conforming person this year in the United States, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
News of her death wasn't known to queer media until recently due to several local outlets misgendering, deadnaming, and outright underplaying the manner in which she died.
According to the Denver Post, one of many outlets to have misgendered her, Thompson was shot by trooper Jason Wade after he responded to a report of a person exhibiting “odd behavior.”
'Who will protect you from rape without police?' Here's my answer to that question
As uprisings have spread through American cities in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a once fringe leftwing position has become rapidly mainstream: abolishing the police. Police abolition means different things to different people, but to most activists “abolition” means a radical shrinking, defunding and disarming of police forces.
The call to “abolish the police”, then, amounts not to a wholesale abandonment of the state’s enforcement of criminal law, but rather to a reimagining of the nature and responsibilities of that enforcement. Many abolition advocates imagine a future in which the police no longer constitute an armed group that surveils peaceful minority neighborhoods or uses force in non-violent drug and traffic cases. The police, if they exist at all in an abolitionist future, would be smaller, disarmed and just one of many community interventions to foster public safety.
But as calls for police abolition have entered the mainstream, some feminists – as well as commentators invested in the status quo – have raised a question: without police, who will defend women from male violence? Who will investigate and arrest rapists? This is often a well-intended and good-faith concern, especially from feminists who believe that the prevalence of sexual violence and the failure of the justice system to prosecute and punish rapists is a result of societal indifference to women’s suffering. To them, this failure calls for more, not less, state intervention.
The notion that abolishing the police will have negative repercussions for women radically misunderstands both American policing and sexual violence
But the notion that abolishing the police will have negative repercussions for women radically misunderstands both American policing and sexual violence. Police abolition need not be considered an abdication of the responsibility to protect women, but rather a way to fulfill it.

Former Dodgers star Carl Crawford is arrested for 'choking his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint and slamming her head into a wall' in attack just days before two people drowned in his pool
Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford has been arrested after his former girlfriend accused him of assaulting her during an argument over a man she had begun dating.
An arrest affidavit filed Wednesday by Houston police states that the ballplayer-turned-record producer went to the home of Gabriele Washington on May 8, produced a handgun from which he unloaded the ammunition in her presence, then demanded information on her latest dating relationship.
Washington told investigators Crawford pushed her to the floor, slammed her head against a wall and choked her after she told him that she had not had sex with the man she was dating.
