PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Gonzalez,

DJ and producer Jasmine Infiniti suffered a fractured jaw after she was allegedly attacked by a transphobic group. One member of the group reportedly pulled a knife and cut her friend. We demand justice for this innocent woman.

The assailants reportedly verbally attacked Infiniti with transphobic statements before punching her in the face and stealing her friend’s shoes, forcing her to run away barefoot. Infiniti stated that the group threatened to do worse if she did not leave with her friends.

This disturbing crime cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Hate is showing its ugly face again. Live and let live. How does someone’s sexual identity threaten another’s? You don’t have to change your life to fit another’s life. Best advice I ever received was “You don’t have to like your co-workers you only have to work with them.” We would all do well to apply that attitude to life.
