Transgender Activist Dana Rivers Arrested for Brutal Murder of Lesbian Couple and Their Son

Noted transgender activist Dana Rivers was arraigned Tuesday on charges of committing a brutal triple homicide in Oakland, California in the early hours of Friday, November 11. The victims have been identified as lesbian couple Patricia Wright and Charlotte Reed and their son Toto “Benny” Diambu-Wright.

Rivers allegedly stabbed and then shot the victims in their home, which he then set ablaze in an attempt to destroy evidence. Rivers was apprehended while attempting to flee the scene of the crime on Reed’s motorcycle. He was covered in their blood.

Police state Rivers made statements confessing to the crime. He was arraigned without bail on charges of triple homicide, arson of an inhabited dwelling, and possession of metal knuckles. He faces life without possibility of parole, and potential death sentence.

Rivers’ motive is unknown. The Mercury News reports: “Authorities have not released a motive but have indicated it might have been a dispute over some property”, while Fox Channel KTVU News reported: “Sources said the case is an isolated incident involving a domestic dispute.”

Dana Rivers (formerly David Warfield) rose to national prominence in 1999 when he was removed from his tenured teaching position as an IT instructor at Center High School in Sacramento following allegations that he inappropriately over-shared personal information with students following his on-the-job gender transition.

Rivers was subsequently featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, among other national media. He planned on writing a book and selling a movie version of his life story. With the help of an ACLU attorney Rivers negotiated a $150,000 buy-out of his tenured position and resigned.

A vigil was held yesterday for Benny Diambu-Wright at Berkely High, where the nineteen-year-old graduated from high school last year before enrolling in nursing school. Over a hundred people burned candles and shared memories of the young man and his mothers. Patricia Wright, a special-ed teacher, had worked for the same district for a decade until her retirement last year.

At time of publication, GenderTrender is the only LGBT website to report.

(And if you do a Google search, most news outlets are referring to Rivers as a "woman.")

Wow. DL's issue with trans aside, women don't do things like this. I accept that some people feel like they were born in the wrong body and make efforts to change themselves physically, but unless you're socialized from a young age, certain things and characteristics will always remain male or female; this was a horrific crime committed by someone socialized as a man.

From R27:

[quote]A male victim identified by Berkeleyside as Benny Wright, 19, was found stabbed to death outside the home, and cops then heard another loud bang inside a garage. The officers watched Rivers walk out of the home, covered in blood, and toward a victim's motorcycle to escape, according to the East Bay Times. Wright’s adoptive parents, Patricia Wright, 57, and her wife, Charlotte Reed, 56, were found fatally shot inside the home.

We live in a scary world, she deserves a life sentence for this. That said, she'll get free medical care for life in a woman's prison.

The Trans 'community' have an odd attitude to T violence. They either keep totally silent - such as when males who identify as T tell lesbians online to slit their throats, or , they stand outside jails and courts with placards proclaiming 'T hatred' in support of some wig-wearing male who has raped women and is demanding a spot in a female jail, or, they speedily distance their precious 'movement' from the perp, and pretend that T was never really a big cheese - see: Stefonknee - he was on T committees and stuff, despite being a full-on lunatic who lives as a 'little girl' with an asshole BDSM male+ female couple who act as his 'parents', but when it broke that he had been arrested for threatening to set fire to his ex wife and his kids' home, the 'community' kept silent.

There is a catalogue of murders and rapes and other sexual offences that have been committed by males who identify as transwomen, R50 - that is just a fact, and given they are a small minority in the population, the rates of violence are higher than in the general population.

What's the source for your statement about the FBI? Obviously 25 murders is too many - I'm not meaning to downplay it - but how does it compare to the general population? Even if you account for the fact that trans people are a very small minority, 25 in one year doesn't sound all that high. I've never seen any evidence that trans people are at a disproportionate risk of murder in comparison to the rest of the population. I'm willing to be proved wrong, though.

This is what I can't stand. The "LGBTQ" media suppresses any reporting that holds trans people in a bad light but almost seems to take delight in demonizing gay men, in particular, gay white men. They have ZERO problem reporting about the crimes of gay people when they occur. The only content that seems to be approved by certain well known gay news sites and portals that has anything to do with gay white men that doesn't revolve around some kind of criminal activity is exclusively about prostitution or kink/BDSM shit or "here's another gay guy whose in the closet or fucking us over". It's pathetic. If I see another article titled "How To Select Your Johns" or "My Journey Into The BDSM Leather Scene" or "The Life Of A Hooker" I think I'm going to put my fist through my screen.

'I couldn't rape them if I wanted to.' As for the three murders, Rivers points out that the allergy medication she was taking reacted badly with her HRT. 'If cis doctors did their homework before treating trans patients,' she said, 'none of this would have ever happened.'"

Trans-worshiping Autostraddle calls him a “former” LGBT activist, of course, and goes on to say:

“Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists and other anti-trans activists have seized this opportunity to shout loudly at news outlets and on social media that Dana was ‘really a man’ and should be labeled as such. (In many cases such shouts are unecessary as most media has successfully mis-gendered Dana when discussing her past and used other incorrect terminology.) Although there’s nothing but rage in our hearts towards Dana Rivers, it would be tragic if this case was used to marginalize and stigmatize other trans women, especially if said stigmatization comes from other LGBTQ women…”

I looked u dl fave Jazz Jennings on GenderTrender and came upon an article about trans kids and was so struck by this:

Ryan entered second grade as a boy testing at a kindergarten level and exited as a girl named Rachel testing at a fourth grade level. Because school administrators would not let Rachel wear a dress to school, Guinan worked to get a dress code of khaki pants instituted so that other girls would at least be wearing the same clothing as her daughter.

This boy's mom fucking changed the grade school dress code so her kid wouldn't feel "left out"? Yeah you guys don't ask for much at all. Fucking meddling parents of special snowflakes. It's kids who have shit shifted around and done for them by their parents and never learn the word "no" who grow up to murder said parents when they do finally say no.

I think r132 has hit the nail on the head. The general public think the T are gay. I have lost count of the people who've told me that T is a sexuality.

In reality the closest it comes to that is being a fetish but of course the shrill T whiners deny that any of them are merely fetishists, they deny that they get herections when pulling on their bizarrely overly feminine lingerie when we've all SEEN the fetish pics. Just being plain old men who get their kink on by dressing in womanface doesn't fit the eternal victim status.

We really need to separate the T from the acronym and make it very, very clear that playing dress up is NOT a sexuality and neither is having a personality disorder or four.

r168 there are transgender people-they do exist. It's just that they are in much smaller numbers than the current media coverage would suggest. The news has turned into a fetid, clickbait cesspool. They are pushing this as an issue because it is tentpole clickbait, i.e. it gets a wide cross-section of the public angry for different reasons, thus guaranteeing high page hits.

The fetishists have, like the SJWs, jumped on this cause in order to heighten their own SM profiles to make them look popular and important. A small minority of the autogynophiles are also using this as a chance for sexual gratification and general harrassment of women.

In the beginning, before people really understood the difference between gender and sexual orientation, genuine Ts were lumped in with the LGBs because they were seen as drag queens, who are e-fem gay men. It made sense that a) they needed protection and an advocacy group, and b) this was the best place for them.

Now that transgender has become the new autism, it makes no sense to have them with us. I do feel sorry for all the genuine Ts who are trapped in the middle of all this bullshit.

by Anonymousreply 16911/18/2016

You're right r169. I've spoken here before about two trans women I know who are both horrified beyond belief at how things are going. They both have lived for a long time completely as women since their twenties, now one is 60 something the other 50 something.

They both accept that they are not biological women and have made peace with that. They both accept that the problem is in their head not their physicality. They both have walked a hard road, lost jobs and been disowned.

They both have never experienced hatred and threats like they have in the past two years, all from other trans. They are attacked as "tru scum", they have been doxxed and have both been put in fear for their lives by crazies that don't like being told the truth. Men cannot become women. They both don't understand why this is now being taught as gospel that you are whatever you say you are regardless of reality and anyone who doesn't want to be forced to play along is a bigot.

If you are truly dysphoric the best you can hope for is some measure of comfort from living as a woman but that isn't a cure all. A very small number are truly dysphoric. The majority are autogynephile and that is NOT the same thing. The autogynephiles are just plain old fetishists and they've tricked the public into thinking it's OK for them to impose their fetish on other people and force them to take part.

Not sure if you've heard but there's been a change to the Canadian Human Rights Commission

[quote]This enactment amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination. The enactment also amends the Criminal Code to extend the protection against hate propaganda set out in that Act to any section of the public that is distinguished by gender identity or expression and to clearly set out that evidence that an offence was motivated by bias, prejudice or hate based on gender identity or expression constitutes an aggravating circumstance that a court must take into consideration when it imposes a sentence.

Referring to someone with the wrong pronoun constitutes a hate crime. Google Jordan Peterson for more info about this since he's notorious for refusing to accept preferred pronouns at the the University of Toronto.

by Anonymousreply 21212/21/2016

Yes, r212.

I wonder what they think of Dana Rivers, their fellow MichFest hater.

Such hypocrites. For all of their fake activism...they wasted no time throwing women and girls under the tranny bus.

We should put them out of business. Just like they did MichFest

Burn in hell Dana Rivers!

[quote][R210], the Indigo Girls, who owe their decades long career to lesbians, boycotted MichFest and participated in the Transparent show that compared rad fems with nazis.

Now I can finally admit I can't stand Judith Light in anything where she's not the villain. She's like one of those women whose pussies freeze men's dicks off, or like your least favorite person at the synagogue.

I'm curious. Rivers was arrested on the same night he killed them, and confessed to police. What's the point of delaying every step of the legal process since then? It's been well over a year now. Does playing up "mentally unfit for court", better his chances of Not Guilty by reason insanity? Or is he hoping to wait until people have cooled down their anger, grief and shock, for jury reasons?

Good question r216. I can't see any possible defense here. I'm guessing the courts just can't figure out WTF to do with Rivers once convicted so they're dragging their feet for that reason.

This will be a very messy case once it goes to trial that will open up a huge Pandora's Box that I think a lot of people would prefer stay closed. That's very unfair to the victims and their families but I doubt they have the money or power to do much about it.

Maybe they're considering an insanity defense.

by Anonymousreply 21801/23/2018

Oh I assumed all along he'd be going for "NG:RI". What else has he got? Are there any elections coming up? I ask because maybe the fact that with multiple murder, he qualifies under "special circumstances" to possibly face a death penalty. Is anyone running with a policy of banning capital punishment? Could his defence be delaying with this in mind?

Sorry, that, R219, was me, R216.

They better reject that. He knew damn well what he was doing.

Update.

CBS: Transgender Activist Ordered To Stand Trial For Oakland Triple Murder

A transgender activist and former teacher was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on three counts of murder for the shooting and stabbing deaths of a teenage man and two women in East Oakland in November 2016.

Rivers, a former Sacramento schoolteacher, gained national attention when she had a sex change operation and became a woman in the 1990s.

In addition to the three murder charges, at the end of a preliminary hearing Alameda County Superior Court Judge Allan Hymer ordered Rivers to face a jury on the special circumstance allegation that she committed multiple murders and on charges of arson of an inhabited structure or property and possession of metal knuckles.

She’s accused of killing 19-year-old Toto M. Diambu, who was also known as Benny Diambu Wright, 57-year-old Patricia Wright and 56-year-old Charlotte Reed.

Dana Rivers, 63, of San Jose, is scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court on March 21 to have her trial date set...

A motive for the three homicides wasn’t disclosed during Rivers’ preliminary hearing but prosecutors said it will be revealed at her trial, which may not take place for several years since she could face the death penalty and the attorneys in the case need time to prepare...

[the shooting and stabbing deaths of a teenage man and two women...]

Odd wording. How about "the shooting and stabbing deaths of two women and their teenage son" or a "married couple and their teenage son" rather than making them sound like they are all random people.

And "teenage man"?

Wow, it's like they're shelving the trial to protect him and by extension the T movement from the bad press they deserve. If I ever murder three people in a violent homicidal rage and face the death penalty I'll have to remember to use the Trans Plea because that'll apparently buy me "several years" before I even have to stand trial.

Justice for Benny, Patricia, and Charlotte!

This is disgusting OP. No different than racist trolls on Fox who try to give as much publicity to every murder of a white person by a black person as possible to increase racial hatred in the world. No different than someone trying to elevate stories of young gay men on drugs or living on the streets. A truly morally bankrupt person you are OP. It's never too late to change but you are doing evil work trying to increase hatred and drag people a part. I sincerely hope you see that one day.

r226 WTF are you talking about? Are you aware these murders happened 16 months ago and got virtually no press coverage or publicity even at the time they happened? Since then the case has been delayed at every turn until last Wed. with Dana Rivers finally being ordered to stand trial for the murders but now even that might take a few more years. Where's the justice in that?

I'm really not seeing the hateful voices trying to divide people that only seem to exist in your own head.

These two innocent women who were also part of the GLBT community themselves were brutally murdered along with their young son.

Did you miss the part that they were LESBIANS and, if you read between the lines, they were also MichFest participants where Rivers was one of the transwomen protesters demanding to be let in and angry because they were denied by bio women? It will be very interesting to see what sort of motive the defense attorney can spin out of that.

In what possible way can you compare this to racist trolls on Fox who try to give as much publicity to every murder of a white person by a black person as possible to increase racial hatred?

Neither mainstream media or GTBT media want to touch this with a ten foot pole and I suspect r224 has the correct reason why.

So now he's been ordered to stand trial, what penalties are available in California for a man like him? A man who beats up, stabs, shoots and kills a family of three, then tries to burn down their home with their bodies inside.

[quote]And "teenage man"?

Media/PR spin. "Man" elicits far less public knee-jerk sympathy, is not as emotionally manipulative as "son", "boy" or "child".

by Anonymousreply 22903/13/2018

Nevermind, I've been told that multiple murder puts his offences within "Special Circumstances", meaning he could face death penalty. Or, I assume, the rest of his poxy life in a prison.

Now watch Twanztastic activists spin this as evil cis-lesbian terfs deliberately "provoking" poor vulnerable twanz girl , therefore deserving to be shot & stabbed, and can now be blamed by everyone on the Right Side Of History for the tragic death of a trans woman!

Not sure whether the arraignment hearing scheduled for March 21 took place. There's nothing in the news about it. I used the Alameda County Inmate Locator to find that an "Attorney and Plea Hearing" will happen on April 16 at the Alameda County Courthouse. I hope soon there will be justice for Benny, Patricia, and Charlotte.

I'd appreciate any local news updates at all about the case after the hearing. The mainstream media is keeping eerily silent about this vicious triple murder and arson.
