transgender

A transsexual male was shot and killed in College Park, GA. Troy Dangerfield was shot while sitting in a car outside an apartment complex about 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, AJC.com reports.

His death brings the list of murdered trans persons in the United States in 2017 to 23.

College Park police Maj. Lance Patterson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that police found Dangerfield suffering from multiple gunshot wounds outside the South Hampton Estates on the 3100 block of Godby Road early Wednesday.

Dangerfield, affectionately known as “TeeTee, was pronounced dead at Grady Memorial hospital.

Police are not investigating his death as a hate crime.

“At this time we have no information that points to the shooting being the result of our victim being transgender,” Patterson told The AJC.

Transgender is a catch-all term used to describe people who suffer from Gender Dysphoria, a condition that causes discomfort or distress with one’s existing sexual/physical features.

To avoid the mental illness stigma attached to the term transgender, many trans males refer to themselves as transsexuals.

According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), there were at least 22 transgender people killed in the United States in 2017.

Most of the murders remain unsolved.

    This is truly getting out of hand, but nothing good ever happens sitting in a car at 4.30 in the morning. Just saying.

    Nevaaaaahhhh

  • Platoon

    The LGBTQ propaganda machine is in full affect.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Ain’t it!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    One question and please don’t be mad at me !
    Why are Trans people extremely promiscuous ?
    My question is based on the few I know and some ID shows.

  • MookieFly

    Thats the only way a lot of them can make money for sex change drugs and surgery. Plus many have troubled past from being kicked out of the home at a young age that makes it hard for them to acquire regular jobs.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Was he a transvestite or a transsexual because his face is still very mannish?

    Maybe his hormones hadn’t taken effect yet.

  • MookieFly

    Aww come on Bobby V…you can’t go on a killing spree cus you got caught

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I the the can get a job and work!!! They may not make it fast enough but selling a** ain’t the only way a lot of them have drug habits and don’t want to work

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Just when I thought we would make it a whole day without…. nevermind ::scrolls back up to read:::::

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I find that to be true for Gay men as well.

  • JerseyMom

    Watch these mentally ill people blame Lil Duval and the Breakfast Club for this young man’s murder.

  • MookieFly

    That might be true. I just know a lot of jobs simply won’t hire the trans community, especially if they don’t have an good education. I had a friend who worked in HR say its not worth the hassle *shrug*

  • Greatgrape37

    That’s really sad

  • Nessa

    Ha..

  • Pamela

    Chilling in his car at 4.30 in the morning and somebody gone come and fug with him. Not right.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    OK. Are we looking for patterns in these murders? I know that a lot of people are murdered while hoo/king. Is this the case? Because the ones who are murdered “SEEM” to be the ones that are in the streets doing their thing.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    They are still men. Men view sex, as well as society “different” for them. I stand by that.

  • Harley
  • Harley

    MENTAL ILLNESS!!!!!!!

  • SDot

    ITs sad, but why is it happening? Are they being mean, fighting back, Not telling ppl they’re really a man? Why?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    True story, last time I chilled in a car at 4:30 in the morning I was definitely up to no good!

  • Pamela

    Ain’t that the truth! The devil is active at that time of the night!

  • Justlooknout

    Truly sorry for the senseless loss of a life.

    May God Keep the family.

  • Justlooknout

    The pattern of taking someone’s life is crazy people. In my opinion, some folks like and don’t tell the truth about their sexual history and or preference. It leaves the other party helpless and or angry.

    Take for example in Ushers case, Let’s say he didn’t know that he didn’t know (highly unlikey) he had STI and passed it on. The young lady he passed that disease onto was left helpless and sued, fortunately she didn’t have any mental illness and didn’t kill him.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    True…I used to work with a transfemale and she stopped and started escorting. She be on IG taking trips and getting gifs…got her nose and boobs done up next is the kitty….

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Sad news and my condolences go to him and his family!
    BUTTTT!!
    Sandra I really wish you would gather more information before posting stuff. Why should we spend all this time speculating when you can just wait one additional day to post this and we will have more info. You know what auntie im not bout to play with you today.

  • FOR COMMENT

    DL thugs don’t want to be exposed or they are lying about what they really are..

  • FOR COMMENT

    yep..I hope he continue to stand his ground!

  • kennedy campbell

    from the ones i’ve worked with ( ive been trying to film a doc) most were kicked out at 14, 15, 16 etc for being gay. they didn’t have anyone where to go..didn’t know anything about social services..or didn’t know what to do. there’s a heavy drag/trans population where they would go to in my city and a lot of the other trans/drag kids/adults would take them in and teach them how to turn tricks on the streets…now of course this isn’t all of them…remember they are men and to me men seem to always be horny…some would say because they were gay it was hard for them to identify other gays…to be in a relationship with…they found that when they started dressing as females..the men came..and with that the taste for sex…we could go on and on

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Get the nut then kill the trick. Is this the new solution. These guys are not being deceived.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Kennedy are you in Atlanta? How far along are you in your documentary?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    He looks like Marsha Ambrosius from Floetry. Maybe the killer was an obsessed fan with a deadly case of mistaken identity.

  • Justlooknout

    Folks on this very blog, got family that look like men, but yet ya;ll be like he knew.

    Often times folks are meeting online and make excuses for not meeting up right away and then they meet. have drinks and or drugs and then…it goes to

    1st
    2nd
    and right at 3rd base the paynus smacks them in the forehead.

    It’s not right, but folks gotta start doing the back ground before they become head over heels for someone they know little to nothing about.

    “At this time we have no information that points to the shooting being the result of our victim being transgender,” Patterson told The AJC……. it could have been any reason

  • kennedy campbell

    a lot of times the drug habits from what i’ve seen with the ones i’ve worked with came from trying to cope with being kicked out to the streets at a young age…and the people coming to save them aren’t always the best people to look over you…with the drugs came turning tricks..and then getting caught by the police..and their records start to fill up with charges..some minor and some not…and then no one wants to hire you…and then you can’t get a pell grant for school…it’s a domino effect..i used to work with one from highschool age to his/her early 30s and his record is a mess…the police target some of them too. if there is a sidewalk and he wasn’t walking on it and the cops saw him…that’s an automatic prostitution charge..(police can pretty much say what they want) they took it as he was walking over to a john to hook up…they had a few other silly things too that would turn into a more serious charge

  • kennedy campbell

    you are right..a lot of the muggings/killings i hear about in the area that I live all seem to happen in that early dark AM

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), there were at least 22 transgender people killed in the United States in 2017.”
    —-
    The way the media reports this stuff, you’d think it was more like 250.

  • Ni Ni

    So transvestite is what they’re called pre hormones?

  • LurkerGuest

    with respect to the deceased Godby Road is not an area you want to be in at that time in the morning; s/he might not have been killed because of being transgender.

  • FOR COMMENT

    This is how you know–that this is not of God!!..Satan’s work.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    There have been 414 murders in Chicago alone this year.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • imright

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    OK you better be tucked in well before then. That not a pun about being trans LOLOLOLOL. But this could have easily could of been a wrong place at the wrong time situation.

  • SDot

    That’s sad to me the do men are so scared they’re dangerous and is killing ppl left and right. Super sad

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I know Sandra is gonna comment so I will for her. Please read the headline again. Transsexual shot and killed it says nothing about him being shot and killed because hes trans.

    You’re welcome auntie.

  • Lisa daniels

    Sandra, why was Transgender removed as a mental illness?

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Your manager just called me and said you can leave for the day. BYE LOLOLOL

  • Karen Brady

    Okay now you gots to go. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

  • Karen Brady

    Tee heeee… whatuwazdoin? Take yo butt in the house. Too many fools running around these streets.

    In the early 90s, I met a guy through a chatline. We spoke for approximately two months before we arranged to meet downtown.

    I didn’t show up for the first date and he was a no-show for the second meeting. On our third attempt to connect, I gave him my address but for some odd reason, I gave him the wrong apartment number. I started to correct myself but instinctively, I decided to let it go.

    About an hour past our scheduled encounter, I heard a commotion in my hallway. When I looked through my peephole, I saw seven or eight black men standing outside my door.

    One guy said, “man, that f@g don’t live here. He gave you the wrong address. Ain’t nothing but old, snotty white folks in here!” Another male, outside of my line of vision, responded, “What’s that f@gget’s number? I’m finna call him!”

    I immediately ran across the room and unplugged the phone from the wall. If the phone had rung while they were standing outside my door….

  • Banka

    Funny not funny yeah kinda funny….. ouch!!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    I would love to see a Doc about it , it would answer many questions .
    I still feel bad for them , can’t be fun :/

  • MsPam

    Thanks, I needed a good laugh today!???

  • Banka

    Plus it seem like a lot of them are involved in the prostitution world.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    So another black man was killed , OK. So 23 additional black man were killed since 2017 started? Ok .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Good point .

  • MsPam

    You are on roll today!??

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Thank you for your answers , I have a better understanding of the situation , I might not like it but I don’t judge ; I can only imagine if I grew up like them … lord!

  • pure_rachet

    And what exactly were you doing, hmmm? ??

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Some gays are promiscuous because they are trying to feel the void of love and acceptance from their families, with endless sexual partners. Their value is connected to the number of men they sleep with. The other issue is that most homosexuals are self-loathing and self-destructive.

  • Coco17

    It’s alot of trans prostitutes in that area. Hopefully that wasn’t the case

  • i troll it like i see it

    Sorry for the loss of life?

  • PlayerP

    Sad.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!
    No a transvestite is a cross-dresser. Most transvestites only dress like the other gender in private, but in public you would never know.
    A transsexual wants to be the other gender/sex with our without the surgery.

    Shortly after that, a friend met a guy online who beat him with his own iron, tied him up with the iron’s cord, wrapped him up in a sheet, and threw him from a second floor window. As a result of his injuries, he wore a backbrace for several years.

    Another acquaintance met a guy on the street, drove to a secluded spot near a hospital and the guy shot him to death and dumped his body in a nearby alley.

    I have a million stories like this.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    All of this killing is too much. My heart goes out to the family

  • Jay

    Pople don’t need to be killed. They need your help and understanding. I don’t agree with this way.

  • On the radar….

    I know I do. Used to go to family reunions. There is always that one old Auntie trying to get you to meet your project relatives and she would be like ‘this yo cousins Sheniqua and Cookie’ with Kool aid grins and shit, like I was supposed to be proud. Manly looking bitches was trying to beat me up with their hating asses.

  • kennedy campbell

  • dontgetblocked

    This is sad but many transexuals live a dangerous life…turning tricks, drugs, lying to men.

    Those chat lines in the 90’s were just as f’n crazy as social media these days. The worst story I remember was my cousins neighbor posing as an 18 yrs old and was only 13. She invited the guy she was chatting with to her house while her mom was gone and this guy rapped her with a broom handle.

    Those same predators have migrated to the internet. Some gay men are easy targets because they are still in the closet. If they’re the victim of a gay-relate crime, they may not report it to the police.

  • FallenOne

    So you were pretending to be the opposite sex?

  • FallenOne

    This one guy i knew of was killed in an alley hooking up with a guy on the chat line. The story was the straight guys were trapping “fags”. Your story just gave me the heads up about meeting people. Thank you for that seriously

    I thought I could trust him because we had been speaking on the phone, for months. Some psychopaths are very patient and extremely cunning.

  • Solo

    one can say the same of the common prostitute. just because you’re trans doesn’t mean you turn tricks, do drugs, and lie to men. I get your point but generalizing comes off a bigoted and discriminatory.

  • PK

    Exactly

  • the guest

    Thank the good Lord, your intuition protected you and you were not harmed by dangerous people.

  • the guest

    No offense intended whatsoever, considering these dangers, are there men in your community who choose celibacy.

    There are many heterosexual women who choose celibacy because of the risk of physical harm, date rape, and STDs in dating.

    People are duplicitous and devious in today’s society.

    The term “Transgender” was coined in the 1960s and popularized in the last 20 years. It’s basically a made up catch-all term for transsexualism or gender dysphoria, which is still in the DSM manual.

  • bhavana

    I don’t condone that lifestyle, but people have a right to live.

  • Malcom Flex

    SO?? Women get murdered more than anyone they want to be women…

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A transvestite is a heterosexual cross-dresser who has a sexual fetish for feminine clothing and accessories. They used to sneak and try on their mother’s underwear when they were boys. Think Bruce Jenner.

    Transsexuals are homosexuals who wish they were born female. Transgender is a made up catch-all term to describe transsexuals and transvestites as if they were one and the same.

    You’re talking to a gay man who has been celibate for years. It’s difficult, because there is a LOT of temptation. However, working in healthcare and having ties to law enforcement, are extremely sobering factors. Not to mention all the friends I have lost to predators.

    Heterosexual women find celibacy safe as well especially if they have children. I read your posts. You are wise, insightful, and honest.

  • the guest

    That was your sixth sense inner voice that knew there was danger.

    Years ago before marriage I cried over a break up with a guy I really cared about at that time. A friend said something back then that stuck with me “Rejection is God’s Protection”. I believe that saying.

    Good thing that man didn’t show up and when there was a second chance for him to show up your sixth sense protected you. Amen.

    I had a front row seat to the AIDS epidemic. I watched a lot of beautiful people die a slow, ugly death. One of them was my friend, James, whom I met when I was 16.

    He was my first living encounter with AIDS. Prior our introduction, AIDS was just a scary four-letter word dominating the headlines.

    When James told me he was sick, it felt like someone had punched me in the gut! James made me promise I would always take care of myself and never take risks with my health. One of the last things he said to me was, “everything that looks good to you, ain’t good for you.”

    A few short months after disclosing his painful diagnosis, he was dead. Like the first snowflake in an avalanche, his tragic ending was the beginning of many more to come.
