Teonna Brown Sentenced To Five Years In Prison For Her Part In The Beatdown Of White Transgendered Female Chrissy Lee Polis In Maryland

Remember Chrissy Lee Polis? She's the white transgendered female who was assaulted by two black females at a McDonald's restaurant at 6315 Kenwood Avenue in the Baltimore suburb of Rosedale, Maryland in April 2011. A white woman who intervened to stop the attack was punched out; a black McDonald's employee who filmed the attack was fired. I previously discussed this case on April 22nd and on April 23rd, 2011.

One of Polis' assailants learned her fate on September 13th, 2011. Teonna Monae Brown, 19, who pleaded guilty in August to first-degree assault and a hate crime, was sentenced to 10 years in prison (five years suspended) plus three years of supervised probation, as prosecutors sought. She could have received a maximum sentence of 35 years. Meanwhile, the other assailant, a 14-year-old girl charged as a juvenile, also admitted her responsibility back on July 1st, but has not been formally sentenced. She remains in a juvenile detention facility. And a civil case is just beginning; Polis has filed suit against McDonald’s for failing to stop the beating and because it was its employee, Vernon Hackett, who videotaped the incident while laughing about it. Report from WJZ Channel 13 also available (embed removed because of erratic behavior).

Although 55-year-old Vicky Thoms, the courageous bystander who was punched in the face when she tried to stop the beating, was present at the sentencing, Chrissy Lee Polis was not. In a statement submitted to the court, Polis wrote that she did not forgive Brown and her companion for the attack. She described a demeaning attack in which Brown and the younger girl spat on her, called her names, kicked her and pulled out her hair. She said that after the beating, her epileptic seizures, which had stopped for a year, started again and became more frequent. She further stated that she lost her job and cannot go anywhere without the fear of getting hurt again. She also noted that she has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and suffers from sleep problems, anguish, fear of being alone, and bouts of crying and anxiety; twice she's been admitted to a crisis center.

For her part, Teonna Brown turned on the crocodile tears, apologizing and asking for a second chance. Her lawyer, Timothy Knepp, criticized the sentence as being too harsh for a first-time offender, and characterized the case as "a tragic set of circumstances that was really overblown by the state's attorney's office".

Baltimore County Circuit Judge John Grason Turnbull II called Brown's attack on Polis absolutely outrageous, and said the prosecutors' sentencing recommendation was more than reasonable. Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger said that it was very important that even though this defendant has no criminal record, that the sheer barbaric savagery of the assault warranted substantial time in jail. Meanwhile, the Equality Maryland Foundation thinks the sentence is too short, explaining that the incident demonstrates the lack of knowledge and understanding, and exposes the fundamental level of discrimination against transgender people.

For once I might agree with the Equality Maryland Foundation, albeit for different reasons. Most posters on this Stormfront thread are willing to see the bigger picture and overlook the fact that Polis is transgendered because of the black-on-white issue, although some believe there would have been no hate crime charge had Polis not been transgendered. This, of course, constitutes NO ENDORSEMENT of transgenders or homosexuals; instead, it's merely the sensible acknowledgement that ghetto blacks have essentially declared open season on Whites -- ALL WHITES -- in major American cities with a significant black presence.

As usual this negro savage was not charged with a hate crime.

Had this been a case of a white man beating a black in a McDonald's restaurant, he would have been given the full 10 year sentence and then have it doubled to 20 years for being a hate crime.

Here is a correction to my above post. This violent Negress was charged with a hate crime against a transgendered person but not with a hate crime for committing a racially based hate crime against a white, despite the fact that the victim was white.

It is interesting that the victim in this case was afforded more protection by the courts for her sexual orientation then for her race. This suggests that a tranny has more rights for being a tranny than a white does for being a white.
