For No Good Reason_Lorena
Description: Lorena, originally from Mexico, has lived in Jackson Heights, Queens for 30 years. She says cops harass transgender women regularly, about 4 or 5 times a day. She also says she herself has been stopped by the police a number of times. [I remember] last one especially because I believe it was unjust because I was walking on the street and the officer followed me all the way home so I asked him why he was following me. And he responded by asking me if I lived there and if I had ID. I told him that this was my borough and I live here and I believe I have the right to be walking around freely. He responded by saying that if I did not have ID then what was I? I told him I am a man but I am transsexual so he asked for ID. I told him I did not have any with me at the time so he told me I could be arrested. I told him if he allows me to go to my house I can get him my ID and he said he did not have time and told me to put my hand behind my back and we will fix this issue at the station (110th Precinct).
