…calls for swift justiceFollowing the killing of yet another member of the lesbian, gay,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) has decried the killing and called for swift justice for what it deems “cold blooded murder”.Nephi Noel, a sex worker,Wholesale Jerseys USA, was shot to death early Wednesday morning following a confrontation with a disgruntled customer.SASOD executive Joel Simpson emphasised that the body is doing as much as it could to help bring Wilson’s killer to justice.Simpson explained that SASOD is working along with Guyana Trans United to get witnesses to come forward. He explained that Wilson had been a member of the GTU. Simpson said that reports reaching him indicated that there were a number of people around at the time of the killing.“We’re trying to rally persons who have information to give statements to the police to cooperate as much as possible so that the police can bring the perpetrators to justice,” Simpson said.He went on to say that as far as he is aware the LGBT community has been very cooperative with the police thus far.“We hope that the eyewitness evidence will lead to the police tracking down the perpetrators and to a formal arrest.”He emphasised that both SASOD and the GTU will be “tracking” the matter every step of the way.“This is a case of cold blooded murder; Nephi was shot with the intent to kill and the perpetrators must be brought to justice,” Simpson stressed.According to Simpson,Wholesale China Jerseys, a number of factors are fuelling these types of attacks.

According to the SASOD executive, perpetrators of crimes against the LGBT community are rarely prosecuted and, “when they are prosecuted, there’s rarely any conviction.”In Wilson’s case, Simpson stressed that there are witnesses to the crime and this should aid in bringing justice for the slain youngster.“The onus is on the state apparatus to ensure that this murder is properly dealt with and that we don’t have a situation where it’s lost even before it gets to court,” Simpson emphasised.Simpson said it was too early to determine what SASOD will do in regard to this latest killing. In the past, SASOD has held candlelight vigils for slain members of the LGBT community.“Right now we’re focused on getting evidence.
