California Agrees to Fund the Country’s First Inmate Sex-Reassignment Surgery

shiloh-heavenly-quine

The murderer can finally feel complete. Don’t think I can say the same for his victim and the family members.

From Yahoo: A 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence in California became the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner’s attorneys confirmed Friday to The Associated Press.

California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole.

Quine’s case led the state to become the first to set standards that will allow other transgender to inmates apply to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery. It also prompted a federal magistrate to require California to provide transgender female inmates housed in men’s facilities with more female-oriented items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces.

“For too long, institutions have ignored doctors and casually dismissed medically necessary and life-saving care for transgender people just because of who we are,” said Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine and other transgender inmates. Completion of the surgery not only fulfills a landmark legal settlement but marks a victory “for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need,” Hayashi said.

Quine will be moved to a women’s prison after the operation, which was performed at a hospital in San Francisco, her attorneys said. Quine told a prison psychologist who recommended her him for the operation that it would bring a “drastic, internal completeness.”

She He expects it will end a dysfunction and depression so deep that she he tried to cut and hang herself himself in prison five times, most recently in 2014 when she he was initially told she he could not have the operation. Quine said she he tried unsuccessfully to amputate her his genitalia when she was about 19, three years before she he went to prison and roughly the same time she he tried self-medicating with illegally purchased female hormones.

She He and an accomplice are serving life terms for kidnapping and fatally shooting 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig in downtown Los Angeles in February 1980, stealing $80 and his car during a drug- and alcohol-fueled rampage. Baig left behind two young daughters and a son.

Joyce Hayhoe, a spokeswoman for the federal court-appointed official who controls California’s prison medical care, said the cost of sex-reassignment surgeries could approach $100,000, including procedures and medications before and after the operation. Attorneys at the Oakland-based Transgender Law Center said that figure is exaggerated.

A portion of the state’s expense will generally be reimbursed by the federal government, Hayhoe said. The percentage varies depending on individual circumstances, but it can cover up to 95 percent of allowable charges.

Banned Worldwide: Princess Diana Documentary ‘Unlawful Killing

My dear Christian friend in the UK sent me this film to watch, and she commented on the Royal Family, “They are a horrible mean family Kelleigh. So cold and soul-less. The film was very good. I have also read that Diana was groomed to be a sacrifice from a child, even her name was no coincidence. She was no angel, but she was more human. A human sacrifice. They are above the law, but not Gods law.”

I hope you’ll watch the film and comment on it.

Unlawful Killing, the 2011 Keith Allen film that the British Crown establishment has suppressed worldwide for more than two years, surfaced and was screened at the Sydney Underground Film Festival on 7-8 September. The British documentary on the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in a car crash in Paris in the summer of 1997, and on the 2007-2008 inquest into it, leaves any viewer with indelible questions about the role of the British Crown: unmistakeably involved in shaping the inquest, what was its role in the killing itself?

The Crown’s suppression of Unlawful Killing has been so complete, that its two Sydney screenings were the first anywhere since it premièred at the Cannes Film Festival and a festival in Galway, Ireland, both in 2011. Not only the film itself has been suppressed, but also any public reporting of its actual content. Instead, where the international media has deigned or been forced to mention it at all, they have uniformly denounced the documentary as “grizzly” and “salacious”, usually citing a single, 3-second grainy black and white image of Diana in the back seat of her car after the crash, while excluding any coverage of the entire rest of the 78-minute film.

The “rest of the film” leads inexorably to chilling, still unanswered questions about a British Royal Family hand in orchestrating Diana’s murder. Its title, “Unlawful Killing”, refers to a type of verdict rendered under English law when a death is determined to have resulted from murder or manslaughter, but the perpetrators are unknown. Media coverage has left most people unaware that “unlawful killing” was the official verdict of the inquest concluded at the Royal Courts of Justice in 2008—the longest such hearing in British history.

Unlawful Killing is a 2011 British documentary film, directed by Keith Allen, about the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed on 31 August 1997. It was financed by Mohamed Al-Fayed and Associated-Rediffusion and shown in Cannes while the 2011 Cannes Film Festival was in progress.

Wayne Allyn Root on 9 Dead Bankers

Wayne Allyn Root 

By Wayne Allyn Root

Something very big and very bad is happening. Prominent bankers are dying in droves. Have you ever heard of 8 bankers committing suicide in a matter of just a few weeks?
http://intellihub.com/8th-international-banker-die-month-jumps-building-china/

A 9th banker was found dead only days ago. What is driving successful bankers with families to kill themselves in droves? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-24/another-successful-banker-found-dead

Here’s the tipoff that this is a very big story: the mainstream media is not covering it. There’s 9 dead bankers (and counting) and the story isn’t even mentioned in the national news? That itself is a major news story.

Bankers are dying so fast, you’d think they were all dentists. You get the joke, right? Dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession. Sometimes you need a little humor to brighten up a very dark story. But keep in mind at no time in history have 9 dentists all died under mysterious circumstances in a matter of a few weeks.

Why are so many bankers dying? Is the media asleep at the switch? Afraid to dig deeper? Ordered not to investigate? By whom? The government? Or is the media perhaps afraid for their own lives if they dig deeper? You think that sounds a bit absurd? Well not really. A Wall Street Journal reporter named David Bird, who covers the commodities market, is missing. As in gone. As in never seen again. He left his home on Jan 11th and never returned. Was he working on this story?

Something smells rotten in Denmark. Because 9 dead bankers and a missing reporter should be a huge headline story.

And if anyone has been watching closely- 5 other major bankers died in either suicides or mysterious circumstances in 2013. That’s 14 dead bankers.

Someone is going to win a major journalist prize for investigating a high-profile story like this. But for some mysterious reason, no one in the mainstream media seems interested. Doesn’t that alone make you nervous?

This story is real. The dead are:
William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG.
Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director.
Gabriel Magee, 39-year-old JP Morgan banker.
Mike Dueker, 50-year-old chief economist of a US investment bank, and former Vice President of the St. Louis Federal Reserve.
Richard Talley, the 57-year-old founder of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado.
Tim Dickenson, U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG.
Ryan Henry Crane, 37-year-old executive at JP Morgan.
Dennis Li Junjie, 33-year-old Hong Kong banker.
James Stewart Jr., former CEO of the National Bank of Commerce.

James Stewart? You know something very bad is going on when a bank CEO named Jimmy Stewart is found dead. I guess it’s not such “a wonderful life” afterall.

How they died is strange and mysterious too. Two of these successful bankers jumped off the roof of their high-rise office buildings. Just like that bankers decide to take a stroll off the top of their office buildings? One of the bankers was ruled a “suicide” after being shot 8 times from head to toe with a nail gun. http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/02/another-banker-commits-suicide-by-shooting-himself-eight-times-with-a-nail-gun-2893666.html
Am I the only one who finds this creepy and worrisome? Do you know anyone brave or insane enough to commit suicide by nail gun?

So what’s going on? I’ll give you two theories.

My first educated guess is we are headed for an epic economic collapse. The mainstream media has fed the public lies about a non-existent “recovery” and dutifully reported the government’s manipulated economic reports (filled with fraud). But these bankers are smart guys who know the truth. What’s coming is very, very bad. As I argued in my national bestseller “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” we are entering the Greatest Depression of all-time.

What caused this economic Armageddon? Spending, entitlements and debt. Who caused it? Government, led by corrupt, ignorant and reckless politicians. If I were the lead detective on this case, I’d be investigating who had the most to gain from a cover-up. My investigation would start and end with government collusion, corruption, bailouts and bribery.

Governments all over the world have taxed, spent and printed us into oblivion. America’s debt crisis will make Greece look like a walk in the park. This is too big to “paper over.” When America collapses, the entire rest of the world crumbles with us. Even creative and corrupt government bureaucrats making up fraudulent economic statistics can’t cover this one up. There is no way out from the coming crash. I’m guessing that knowledge might cause a banker who sees the writing on the wall to take a walk off the roof of his high-rise.

But that still doesn’t explain shooting yourself with a nail gun 8 times from head to toe. No one wants to die that slowly and painfully. That sounds more like torture to me. And torture is what leads to murder. Perhaps some or all of these bankers were murdered. Perhaps they didn’t walk off their high-rise buildings. Perhaps they were pushed.

Perhaps the Colorado bank CEO was being “questioned” when the nail gun went off…8 times. I guess the interrogators didn’t like his answers.

But why would someone murder bankers? My educated guess is these are smart guys who knew too much. Perhaps they knew about government manipulation and fraud. Perhaps they knew their banks were not in the wonderful shape their manipulated balance sheets showed. Perhaps they had information about government collusion and corruption in the banking system. Perhaps they were threatening to expose government’s lies and fraud. Perhaps they knew about the trillions in derivatives held by banks and Wall Street firms about to implode and take world economy with it.

I’m just making educated guesses. But something is very wrong. Something bad is coming. 9 dead bankers is a very messy start, of a very big story the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know about.

George Zimmerman found not guilty of murder in Trayvon Martin’s death

By Greg Botelho, CNN

updated 10:18 PM EDT, Sat July 13, 2013

(CNN) — George Zimmerman is not guilty of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, a Florida jury decided late Saturday.

The fact that Zimmerman fired the bullet that killed Martin was never in question, but the verdict means the six-person jury had reasonable doubt that the shooting amounted to a criminal act.

The verdict caps a case that has inflamed passions for well over a year, much of it focused on race and gun rights.

The six-person jury — all women — had three choices: to find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder; to find him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter; or to find him not guilty.

The jurors deliberated for 16½ hours total, including 13 on Saturday alone, before delivering their verdict.

When he learned his fate, a subdued Zimmerman had little visible reaction. His face was mostly expressionless. He turned and shook one of his attorney’s hand before sitting back down. His parents, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, were seated nearby, but Martin’s parents were not in the courtroom.

Earlier in the day, the jury had asked the court for clarification on its instructions regarding manslaughter. The jury couldn’t have even posed such a query a few days ago: Judge Debra Nelson ruled Thursday, over the defense’s vehement objection, to include manslaughter as an option for jurors, in addition to a second-degree murder charge.

To convict Zimmerman of manslaughter, the jurors would have had to believe that he “intentionally committed an act or acts that caused the death of Trayvon Martin.” That charge could have carried a sentence of up to 30 years in prison, though the jury was not told of that possible sentence.

For second-degree murder, the jurors would have had to believe that Martin’s unlawful killing was “done from ill will, hatred, spite or an evil intent” and would be “of such a nature that the act itself indicates an indifference to human life.”

Ultimately, they believed neither. And that means Zimmerman can walk free.

How long other juries deliberated for in other high-profile cases

George Zimmerman Probably Won’t Be Convicted of Murder or Manslaughter — Here’s Why

Interesting analysis from Dan Abrams. I just found on Drudge. Good read.

————————————————————————————————-

ANALYSIS by DAN ABRAMS

July 7, 2013        http://abcnews.go.com

I drew a legal conclusion on “Good Morning America” Saturday that would have surprised the Dan Abrams who covered the George Zimmerman case leading up to, and shortly after, his arrest.

Now that the prosecution‘s case against Zimmerman is in, as a legal matter, I just don’t see how a jury convicts him of second degree murder or even manslaughter in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

So what happened? How can an armed man who shot and killed an unarmed teen after being told by the police that he didn’t need to keep following him, likely be found not guilty of those crimes?

I certainly sympathize with the anger and frustration of the Martin family and doubt that a jury will accept the entirety of George Zimmerman’s account as credible. But based on the legal standard and evidence presented by prosecutors it is difficult to see how jurors find proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it wasn’t self defense.

Prosecutors are at a distinct legal disadvantage.

They have the burden to prove that Zimmerman did not “reasonably believe” that the gunshot was “necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm” to himself. That is no easy feat based on the evidence presented in their case. Almost every prosecution witness was called to discredit the only eyewitness who unquestionably saw everything that occurred that night, George Zimmerman.

The essence of Zimmerman’s account is basically as follows:

He spotted Martin, became suspicious, called police, was told he didn’t need to follow him, was only out of his car to give the authorities an address, was jumped and then pummeled by Martin and as he was being punched and having his head knocked into the ground, Martin went for Zimmerman’s firearm and Zimmerman shot him once in the chest.

The prosecution, on the other hand, called 38 witnesses to try to show: Zimmerman was a wannabe cop who regularly reported black strangers in his neighborhood; initiated and was at least at one point, on top during the encounter; that Zimmerman’s injuries were minor and that many aspects of his accounts to the police and media were inconsistent and/or lies.

For a moment, lets put aside the fact that many of the prosecution witnesses seemed to help Zimmerman in one way or another.

As a legal matter, even if jurors find parts of Zimmerman’s story fishy, that is not enough to convict. Even if they believe that Zimmerman initiated the altercation, and that his injuries were relatively minor, that too would be insufficient evidence to convict. Prosecutors have to effectively disprove self defense beyond a reasonable doubt. So what exactly would that mean based on the facts as we know them?

Let’s take a hypothetical, but realistic, scenario whereby jurors don’t believe Zimmerman when he says he wasn’t following Martin (the lead detective who seemed to find Zimmerman’s account credible had a problem with this part of Zimmerman’s account).

Let’s also assume they believe Zimmerman approached Martin and it is only because Zimmerman was tailing Trayvon Martin that a fight ensued. First of all, the fact that there was a fight at all makes a murder conviction difficult. To win a murder conviction, they have to show he had the intent to kill and did so with “depraved mind, hatred, malice, evil intent or ill will.”

Zimmerman trial; Michael Savage is a Horse’s Patootie

Don't Know His Arse From His Elbow

Don’t Know His Arse From His Elbow

FOTM’S  poetpoet has brought to my attention that Savage has said that Zimmerman was “Guilty”. So I did a little checking and sure enough the schmuck does declare him guilty.

Ummm, well there are a couple of problems with his explanation. I will give you a link to an Audio File (About 3:00 Min) It’s Savages Reasoning. Then Below that is Transcript of part of 911 call and actual recording.

Savage says Zimmerman guilty

Savage says  “OK Sir, Stay in your car do not pursue him.” He says Zimm got out after being told to stay in. Read the transcript and listen to dispatcher tape.

This has been one of the biggest misunderstandings of whole case. He was out of car. He then called 911, they said “are you out of car and he said yes” They said “go back to car ” and Zimm says “OK”and he did. He did not stalk Martin.

Zimmerman 911 call transcript

Zimmerman: He’s running.

911 dispatcher: He’s running? Which way is he running?

Zimmerman: Down toward the other entrance of the neighborhood.

911 dispatcher: OK, which entrance is that he’s headed towards?

Zimmerman: The back entrance. [Under his breath, ‘F-ing c**ns’]

911 dispatcher: Are you following him?

Zimmerman: Yeah

911 dispatcher: OK. We don’t need you to do that.
