What’s most important is that we take a moment to honor the loss of a community member who sadly her incident with this fool shined light on who he was and what he’s capable of doing!
RIH Muhlaysia Booker
It hasn’t even made 2 years since his conviction and this fool is now on trial for murdering a Black CIS woman 🤦🏽♀️.
“He wouldn’t hurt anyone and he only did it because he was provoked!” Just one of the things that were said about this waste of DNA by Black folx following the brutal attack on Muhlaysia Booker back in April of 2019.
One month following the attack Muhlaysia was found shot to death on a street in Far East Dallas. Although it wasn’t Thomas who murdered her, the suspect in that case is Kendrell Lyles. Lyles is being charged with multiple murders including the murder of Chynal Lindsey.
Edward Thomas was charged with misdemeanor assault for that attack on Muhlaysia and was only sentenced to 300 days in custody by a jury that didn’t think he deserved to get the felony charge unfortunately.
The case brought a large amount of hate and transphobic attacks to many of Muhlaysia’s friends and chosen family, specifically a local radio show called Trans-Fusion which each of the ladies on the show knew Muhlaysia. The hate continued on to her immediate family, loved ones and of Muhlaysia as she and community members advocated for #JusticeForMuhlaysia. Sadly many of our CIS brothers and sisters forget that this is nothing new and that Black men have been murdering Black women for decades just the same as Black trans women.
Some of Thomas’s supporters said ridiculous things like “he was fighting like a man because she was one” referring to Muhlaysia Booker as a man or that “nothing was wrong they was both men” . So much so that his attorney Andrew Wilkerson, was arrested for disrupting the court, making side bar comments, arguing with the court and refusing to abide by the Courtroom decorum rules. Which was simply to refer to Muhlaysia using female pronouns.
Oh how I’d love to see their faces now!
On this weeks show we will invite a special guest on from Trans-Fusion
Back to the present moment, the report says that in the early hours of Sept. 20, police responded to a call of a shooting at the Williams Chicken on the 2800 block of East Ledbetter found LaShanda Wilson 41 dead in the parking lot behind the restaurant with a single-gunshot wound to the chest.
Security video shows Thomas handing one of the women a stun gun to use on Wilson.
The arrest affidavit says that after hearing her friend scream for help, Wilson pulled out a handgun and may have fired twice. At that point, according to the affidavit, Thomas got a gun from a nearby car and shot Wilson with one bullet hitting her in the chest.
Side note while this is going on Thomas was out on a $10,000 bond for a case he picked up back in April for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon!
Thomas showed his true colors when he attacked Muhlaysia Booker and looking at his behavior I’m sure Muhlaysia wasn’t the first to encounter an attack from the 6’7 Edward Thomas.
Sadly it’s a reality that we Trans folx know far too well, that if he hits on a CIS woman he’ll possibly hit us too. So to those that were defending Thomas after the attack on Muhlaysia Booker and painting him to a withstanding Black man in community pick your jaw up and before you say one word, allow me to say 3, SHUT UP FOOLS!
We’ll be following this trial and hoping for justice for the young lady LaShanda Wilson that was murdered.
Although it’s not justice for Muhlaysia we at TransGriot hope it’s an eye opener for folx that followed the case and supported him but most importantly he is taken off the streets and won’t hurt, harm or murder anyone else’s daughter or child.
