A transgender woman says she was kicked out of a Giant bathroom by a security guard. News4's Jackie Bensen spoke with the woman who said her privacy was invaded.
D.C. police have charged a security guard at a Giant grocery store with simple assault after a transgender woman said the guard forced her out of the women's restroom.
Ebony Belcher, 32, said she went to the Giant in northeast D.C. with a friend to pick up a delivery from the Western Union.
While at the Giant, she asked a store employee to point her to the restroom and passed a female security officer standing in the hallway.
The officer came into the restroom and told her to get out, according to Belcher.
"She opened the door and came in and started calling me derogatory names," Belcher said.
She said the officer put her hand on her shoulder and arm, grabbed her and pushed her out of the store.
Belcher said the guard told her, "You guys cannot keep coming in here and using our women's restroom. They did not pass the law yet."
She said she called police and reported the incident after she left the store. According to a police report, officers arrested the guard at the Giant after the confrontation.
D.C. Police arrested a security guard at a Giant in Northeast Wednesday. Sources tell News4 the guard is accused of assaulting a transgender woman who wanted to use the women's restroom. News4's Jackie Bensen reports.
Belcher said she suffers from Parkinson's disease and almost fell while the officer was shoving her. The guard, who has not been identified, is a special police officer at a Giant store near Third and H streets in northeast D.C.
NYC Ad Agencies Engage in War of the Post-It Notes Giant issued a statement, which read: "As this matter involves a third party that provides security services for Giant and there's an ongoing criminal investigation, all inquiries related to the incident at the H Street Giant should be directed to the local police for a comment at this time."
President Obama recently issued a directive to public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice.
A controversial law in North Carolina has also brought the issue to the forefront. The law says transgender people must use public bathrooms, showers and changing rooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. The Justice Department has sued North Carolina, saying the law violates civil rights laws.
The Libs call national attention to this sort of thing thinking it would help “their cause” when instead it is raising public awareness of existing under the radar perversion thus bringing it “out” into the light...
They only have themselves to blame.
Yeah... not buying that.
Ebony Belcher??? I’ll bet she sure has a lot of boyfriends.
Looks like pansies are in charge of Giant.
The only person with a brain and sense in this case seems to be the $5 an hour rent-a-cop.
D.C. police - no
Giant management - no
D.C. city politicians - no
U.S. president - no
It seems the guard needs a GoFundMe page and other support.
OK, but “she” looks a lot like Mike Obama.
I am confused. A transgender woman is actually a male - right??
What are the charges - throwing a mas out of the woman's bathroom?
I would bring a lawsuit for false arrest and sue the police force and city for millions.
I’m lost... So is this person a biological women trasngendering to a man or vice versa. If its the first one then why can’t it use the women’s room?
Shouldn’t it be transgender man?
as in man who “transgendered” into a whoahman? (sic)
Now they have their foot in the door, the LGBTQIXYZ will use intimidation and threats to force their way in.
Next, the pedophiles. . . .
I can see why, it looks like Moochehell.
Ebony Belcher is a man.
See? YOU'RE not confused. The male pervert who likes to pretend he's a woman is confused. The morons at NBC-4 are confused. The DC government is confused. But you're doing just fine.
He is a transvestite man, or a cross-dressing man. The words "woman" and "she" are incorrect.
A way for unemployable trannies to make money - suing supermarkets and other retailers.
