Drunk D.C. Cop Shoots Transgender Woman

Why do D.C. cops have such problems with the LGBT people? First they refuse to report a vicious attack on five lesbians, and now a drunk cop shoots a transgender woman. Is there something in the water?

Officer Kenneth Furr started his weekend by getting into “a confrontation” with a transgender woman and two other people, which led to a “minor collision” and Furr shooting the transgender woman. The two other people there with her also sustained injuries, but it seems the police haven’t been able to figure out how yet. They’re also not sure whether charges should be filed, because y’know, it’s all fun and games because no one lost an eye, someone just got shot.
