That’s the message I got from this week’s declaration of emergency in Puerto Rico. The emergency, which lasts until June 30, was in response to “a wave of killings targeting women and transgender people.”
What they don’t tell you is that there were 529 murders in Puerto Rico during 2020, which was a 16 percent reduction from 2019. Of those 529 murders, 54 of them were women and 6 of them were trannies. So, about 1 percent of Puerto Rican murder victims were trannies, and ten percent were women. The 89 percent who were men? No declaration of emergency for them, which screams to me that killing Puerto Rican men is just fine and dandy with the Puerto Rican government.
