STOP THE HATE! – Transgendered Woman Attacked By Mob At 7-11 In Fredricksburg, VA

32-year old, transgendered Julie Carey was ganged up on, attacked, and beaten by a group pf at least four people outside of a 7-Eleven in Fredericksburg, VA on Saturday.  The attackers backed Julie up against a wall and began to beat her, with fists, kicks, and a metal broom handle.

Throughout the beating t her attackers shouted slurs because of her transgender status. All because she had an argument with one of the attacker’s relatives about a dog.

The attack was broken up by neighbors, who came rushing to Julie’s defense in the parking lot where the The Carey’s next door neighbor laid her body over top of her, to shield her from the blows.

When is this madness going to stop?
