Dana Rivers to stand trial on three accounts of murder

But when will the trial happen? It's been a year and a half since transgender activist Dana Rivers killed a lesbian couple and their son.

According to the article, this is a special circumstances case, death penalty case, so it will be some time before she goes to trial.

At least they respected "her" pronouns in the article.

Ugh. Sickening on so many levels.

The female pronouns used for him is disturbing...as if it’s possible for a man to be a woman. But it’s a sign of the times. Men can “legally” become women. Because it’s a man’s world...

No. A man did this. Perhaps a man who wants to be a woman. But a man nonethless. Doing what men have been doing to women for eons.

Seems to me men should lose their transgenderism card when they murder women.

It has been happening since time began without female hormones, R17.

Feeling bad for the jokes about MichFest when scary dudes like this were involved. He got it shut down and still could not stop until he had killed the whole family in cold blood. He is a dangerous man who should receive the death penalty and who should not be given the opportunity to prey on more women in the meantime.

R9 is the one who's politicizing. Referring to and treating males as females is a political travesty of Orwellian doublespeak.

And while women may sometimes be as violent as men, they commit far fewer violent crimes as a whole.

Women can be violent too, but they are statistically less likely to be violent than men are. And anyway, it's a moot point in this instance, because Dana is a man.

The state is complicit for enabling all this jenn-durr crap.

by Anonymousreply 2704/22/2018

No, r9, Dana Rivers is a man who violently & viciously murdered a lesbian-led family.

The victims made a huge mistake when they accepted him as “female.” They trusted him as if her were a woman. They let down their guard...and now they are dead. And the LGB community has done nothing to memorialize or honor them, or prevent such violence against lesbians.

Females just are not as violent as males...in any species. Hens can live together fine, but roosters kill one another.

Males aren’t bad people....they just have violence in their dna. The days of needing to be violent to survive are over. It’s time to evolve past it & the way to do that is to BALANCE male power & energy WITH female power & energy.

When half the world comprises female leadership & power, we will have peace on the planet. But men infiltrating womanhood is not helpful to women, children, the earth or even other men. Women need to be valued, respected & appreciated which has not happened yet and apparently suggesting so is an affront to some men.

But appreciating women will also help gay males, who suffer from adjacent misogyny just for being homosexual.

Dana Rivers and so many other M2T murderers, rapists & pedos prove that M2Ts are just as dangerous if not more so than regular males. They want women to just accept violence as a normal part of life. But violence is not acceptable, and not even one victim of M2T violence should be accepted.

We are either against the global epidemic of violence against women, or for it. And allowing men to claim they are women increases violence against women. It defeats the entire purpose of feminism, and strengthens misogyny.

by Anonymousreply 3204/22/2018

Thank you for the update, OP.

For motive r22, see r18's post. Dana Rivers was among a group of trans women who were angry about being excluded from the Michigan Women's Music Festival (MichFest) which was limited to "women born women." And for good reason as it turns out. The murdered women (only one of whom was black BTW) were participants in MichFest. The poor son just had the bad luck of being there and probably trying to save his mother and her wife.

It will be interesting what sort of motive the defense lawyers offer up but there's really no excuse for the foot dragging when Rivers was found at the scene with the murder weapon in his hand and was said to have made "spontaneous utterances" to police.

This is going to be a very messy case. If I understand correctly Rivers actually did have the full sexual reassignment surgery including "bottom surgery" which will open a very nasty can of worms on many levels. I understand why no one and especially the GLBT community want to get anywhere near this but it's a huge injustice to the murdered family to turn a blind eye to what really happened here.

May they finally get their justice and rest in peace.

A normal defendant would probably plead guuilty in a case like this. But this is probably a preening narcissist and he will love being on stage during trial.

Since cops are mostly male, they might buy it.

R32 is right. Charlotte Reed, Patricia Wright, and Benny Diambu-Wright - remember their names.

Rivers is a violent, murderous narcissist who got a women-only festival shut down because they didn’t believe he was a woman. I loved the MichFest threads and laughed my socks off at them but I really never thought of the Michfesters as misandrist or hateful in any way. I was disappointed when they got shut down but of course the wishes of hundreds of women must be subservient to the hurt feelings of a man.

They seem to have put him in a women's prison and are saying he may (eventually, one day, perhaps) be sentenced to the death penalty for murder so therefore his lawyers need untold YEARS to prepare for the trial. He's 63 and already has lived three years longer than his 3 victims but it's looking like he may get to live out his natural life in a women's prison because actually holding him accountable for the brutal murders he committed would be bad optics for T's. For fucks' sake, he was caught red handed at the scene of the crime with the murder weapons and tried to escape the police on his motorcycle after setting fire to the house. It's an open and shut case. But they won't put him on trial.

On a similar note, the second Colorado STEM school shooter from earlier this week is reportedly a 17 year old FtT but the media is protecting her identity and her trans status because, at 17, she's a helpwess wittle baby minor. I heard NPR refer to her as an "underage person" because they seem to be afraid of misgendering her. ALL the media spotlight is put on the 18 year old male shooter because he's a "man". Will his FtT accomplice be named and her trans status be at all discussed when she turns 18 in, presumably, the coming days/weeks/months? I suspect there's a media blackout in the US regarding any coverage that could cast T's in a bad light or cause the general public to ask questions, so it'll probably slide under the radar indefinitely.

Bonus! If she finally does get identified by her legal female name and sex when she turns 18, she can choose to fully transition and change to a male name. Future employers, college classmates, dating partners etc will be none the wiser because they'll be kicked off of social media and no-platformed if they deadname her in an effort to warn others of her criminal past.

Truly, if you want to commit mass homicide you should identify as trans first because you'll never be questioned, criticized, or even tried and sentenced for your crimes, and you can live in a women's prison regardless of whether you're a MtT or FtT. You're probably extra-protected by Big Pharma hush money if you're on crossX hormones at the time you're doing your stabbing and shooting, because heaven forbid we ever question the practice of taking mentally unstable people and injecting them with synthetic testosterone or estrogen.

This was a hate crime, & should be prosecuted as such.

But most people don’t even know it happened.

This is why I’m done with Gay, Inc.

If the “gay community” does not look out for gays, then it’s worthless to gays.

We obviously still have people who hate us just because of our sexual orientation, which is nobody’s business but our own. Even people on the left can’t fully accept us as humans...they assigned us to the slur “Queer” against our wills & without our input.

Transgender "women" in the US have a 19-65% incarceration rate. General population has a 3%, and women have a way less than 1% - approx 0.0013% of women are incarcerated

Far from the harmless, effeminate, "just want to pee" eunuchs transgender "women" are popularly portrayed as, the autogynephiles who are the Trans Activists in charge now, are primarily heterosexual (attracted to women), white fetishists who get sexually aroused by the idea of themselves as women.

90% of transgender "women" keep their male genitalia and 63% are attracted to women.

Transgender "women" also have a higher rate of autism and personality disorders, most prominently Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which is probably why all these trans athletes don't give a shit about the women whose careers they're destroying, and why trans in general seem not to care that men in women's spaces put women in danger.

Didn’t California get rid of the death penalty?

That should have sped up her trial date.

by Anonymousreply 6805/09/2019

The incarceration rate for transgender "women that I quoted is from an article from the journal Prison Health on the US govt website itself. The range is because different studies have reached different rates.

The oddest thing about the various studies done on transgender incarceration are that they are meant to be SYMPATHETIC to the trials and tribulations of transgender "women" and bends over backwards to explain why so many are locked up.

And it's true, the transgender "women" of color, whose statistics the wealthy white autogynephile transgender activists piggy back on, have a very high % of prostitutes or drug addicts and get in trouble with the law that way, but those incarceration rates are still staggering.

This fall (November 2020), it will be four years since Benny, Charlotte, and Patricia were gunned down in their home. Charlotte and Patricia were stabbed repeatedly as well as shot. A family wiped out by white male violence. Dana Rivers was arrested at the scene, covered in blood and making spontaneous statements about his crimes to the police.

When will Dana Rivers be tried in court for these crimes? Is four years a normal amount of time to wait for justice, while Dana Rivers sits in a women's prison? What is with the media blackout on this case?
