It's a remarkably positive development that Donald Trump's extremely anti-LGBTQ AG Jeff Sessions has sent a federal hate crimes attorney to assist in prosecuting a man accused of shooting dead a gender-fluid high school kid in Iowa ... but the victim's mom is nobly calling for more than just help for her own case.
Katrina Johnson, whose 16-year-old child Kedarie was shot and killed in 2016, is reacting to the Trump Administration's out-of-nowhere assistance in the wake of the DOJ's other, aggressively anti-LGBTQ moves ...
In an interview with Huff Post, Katrina Johnson said:
I love the fact that they have intervened... [I]t shouldn’t have taken for a child to lose his life, and for everybody to think it was a hate crime, for them to step up and do something. They need to continue to do something, even after this case is over.
Federal lawyer Christopher Perras has been dispatched to Iowa to help on the case, even though Sessions has directed an iminous rollback of LGBTQ rights.
