WHEN IS A WOMAN GOING THROUGH HER PURSE SUSPICIOUS?
NY Post ^ | June 21, 2006 | LAURA ITALIANO

Posted on 06/21/2006 7:04:56 AM PDT by Great Communicator

A Chelsea transsexual is simply too masculine-looking to sashay his way out of charges of possessing a stolen purse, four state appellate judges ruled yesterday.

Cops had busted manly tranny Stephen Lomiller - an admitted homeless crack addict - three years ago, after noticing him sitting on a doorstep on Second Avenue and 28th Street.

He was "rifling" through a Fendi shoulder bag while looking nervously up and down the street, cops said.

On his face was what one arresting officer has described in court as "like, a three-days' growth of beard."

Still, Lomiller claims that cops never should have stopped and questioned him, because "transgendered" guys like himself often carry a purse, so there's nothing suspicious about it.

The argument worked - for a while.

A lower-court judge, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice James Yates, actually agreed with Lomiller, and dismissed the purse-possession case.

"While he might not have been fully dressed as a woman, he unquestionably is a person of transgender appearance," Yates said at the time.

"He had on a feminine earring; he had a woman's sweater on, he had eye-liner and makeup on, and he had a distinctive hairstyle," the justice said.

"Seeing that person holding and looking inside a handbag is not something that justifies focused inquiry.

"Were that true, the police could make the same approach to a vast number of people in that area of Manhattan," Yates added.

But in overturning Yates' decision yesterday, the appellate panel unanimously agreed that Lomiller was obviously no lady to the arresting officers, who, therefore, had good reason to stop and question him.

"The defendant looked like a man when he was arrested," the panel ruled, noting that in his mug shot, Lomiller displayed "what seems to be two to three days' growth of beard."

It's a pity that society and government has to waste so much time and resources on pointless crap like this.

Little Stephen is all about his pathetic, self-indulgent, narcissistic ego, "needs" and "feelings". We get stuck with the bill.

What decadent, stupid self-indulgence.

Incidently, from what I have come to understand (and it makes me sick that I am comfortable with these terms) precious Stephen appears to be a "transvestite," not "transgendered."

Well, whatever this creature is, I'll let someone else do whatever needs to be done to verify it!

He stole a purse. Stealing is against the law. Police arrest people who break the law.

I would be very, very suspicious of (rather, cautious of arresting) any woman going through her purse looking for Midol.......

At that point in time, she is already, after all, a concealed weapon.

Forget Stephen. He's a freak, not impacting anybody else other than the woman whose purse he had stolen.

But Yates - the original judge who freed him, and was causally blamed away by the writer - THAT MAN scares me.

Cross-dressers aren't transgendered or transsexuals. They're transvestites. Transsexuals have had or are undergoing a sex change.

Pretty fine distinction, I'm aware.

A transgendered homeless crack addict. A perfect description of the rat party voter base.

Not to mention an acceptable candidate to adopt children in the skewed mind of the liberal.

I'm sorry I didn't communicate well what I meant or was talking about.

I thought the perp was suing the city for damages. I misinterpreted the article.

But I was also reffering to the insanity of this having to have been appealed so high up and wasted so much of the governments and taxpayers time and money.

The guy was guilty, the arresting officers knew it, the perp should have just been jailed without all the malarkey of multiple appeals, etc.

Yes, if the perp was guilty of theft, throw him in the slammer.

OK?

ROTFLMAO!

When I was in court, the best "walkers" from lock-up were the transvestites. Dang, they made Mae West's "walk" look as if she were a gorilla!

Sex changes are just mutilation. There is no change of
the genotype. They gotta get the other sexes hormones,
and they get phony surgical prostheses, or structures,but
it's all mutilation in the long run. It's the ambiguous
genotypes (the XXY's, or the XO, or the XYY's) that are
the ones with the confused "sexualities".

If anything you soundly understate the reality.

"Unstable freak creating a public disturbance" comes to mind as well.

Sad they have to pick on the cop for doing the obvious in the public interest.

"Sex change" surgery changes sex like amputating a foot does.

Like stepping on a land mine does.

A person who wants "sex change" surgery is capable of anything.
