It Is Deadly Out There

The odds are still in our favor that we will come back home at night in one piece but there is always that chance that hate will find you. Most of us live our lives in peace but there are people out there that hate our guts and want to do bodily harm to us. But all it takes in one bigot set on violence.

Two brothers in upstate New York have been charged with third-degree assault as a hate crime after heckling and beating a 19-year-old transgender woman.

Police say Cody Thomas, 18, and Shane Thomas, 27, of Oswego County shouted slurs at the unnamed teen for weeks leading up to the assault.

On Wednesday, the brothers allegedly saw her riding a bike and pulled up alongside her and got out of the car. According to reports, Shane proceeded to assault the teenager. An hour later, after seeing the same woman again, Cody pulled over and assaulted her, as well.
The article says they both have been released from custody and it doesn’t say why or under what circumstances they were.

Another article this time in Syacuse.com said,
State police announced the arrest of the Thomas brothers Thursday evening. They were arraigned in the Town of Volney Court and released on their own recognizance, troopers said.
Another article also in the Syacuse.com said,
FULTON, N.Y. -- One of the brothers accused of assaulting a transgender teenager in Oswego County has been charged with sending a nude photo to a child.

Cody A. Thomas, 18, of 312 S. 7th St., Fulton, was arrested Thursday afternoon by the Oswego County Sheriff's Office. He used Facebook to send a naked photo to a child younger than 17 years old, deputies said.

Thomas was charged with second-degree disseminating indecent material to a minor, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. He was arraigned in Volney Town Court and released.
I can’t believe that they were only changed with third-degree assault when they have been harassing the woman for weeks and then they stopped and beat her, they then came back and beat her again! This was premeditated.
