DC police officer Kenneth Furr has been indicted for the August 26 off-duty incident in which he discharged his service weapon at a transwoman who refused his inebriated advances at a northwest DC CVS store.
There was a report that a possible plea bargain was in the works, but looks like those negotiations broke down.
Furr was charged with nine counts that include intent to kill while armed, six counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of solicitation.
However, I did not appreciate the Washington Post’s characterization of the shooting victims in their article about this indictment as trans prostitutes.
But back to the story. Furr is facing 30 years in prison if he is convicted and is scheduled to appear in court Friday before Judge Ann O’Regan Keary.
