Trans Woman Sues Cobb County Police For Sexual Harassment
A transgender woman is suing Atlanta-are Cobb County police department for sexually harassing her and outed her as transgender to the other inmates according to the AJC.
Sierra Castle says Cobb County officers refused to put her with female inmates, denied her her medication and ignored her requests for medical attention while in custody.
“I was afraid. I was embarrassed. I was humiliated,” Castle told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Peep how f**ked up this is.
Sierra went to the police station to file a report about a traffic accident that damaged her car. While at the station her license plate was run and it was revealed that there was a warrant for her arrest for a $15 seat belt fine.
While on the way to jail, Sierra says she got nervous about her gender and told the transpo officer that she was trans even though she has had full reassignment surgery and legally changed her name.
“I honestly don’t think I should have even said anything, but I was nervous,” she recalled. “I’m not someone who goes to jail. I was scared.”
Sierra says that when the officers at the station were told they began to laugh, pat her down inappropriately, changed the gender on her wristband to “male” and altered her records in the system.
Dirty game. Sounds like Cobb County is about to either settle big time or pay out a LOT of money.
