For No Good Reason_Marcia
Description: Marcia has been living in the city for the past 15 years. She says that police have stopped her numerous times, with three times ending in an arrests and tickets. She says that one time “the cops told me I was being arrested for disorderly conduct, but I do not believe I was doing anything wrong. I had just walked outside of a nightclub and I was heading home, but I was not doing anything bad. They gave me a $200 plus ticket and arrested me for disorderly conduct and I believe that is unjust. I believe I was arrested for being a trans woman walking down the road. When you are a transsexual and you get arrested you are automatically accused of prostitution, but when you go to court and with the lawyer they do not charge you with prostitution, but instead they charge you with disorderly conduct and loitering in some cases.”
