We look at a training video from the US Department of Justice meant to educate law enforcement on the transgender community so they can become sensitive to our issues. Good idea, but will it work?
My first reaction was “wow, they really went a long way to produce this video. Well done.” Then my cynicism popped up and I had to allow that prejudice to subside before realizing that this video will not only help cops become more sensitive to the Trans community’s issues, it will probably create more favorable - i.e. respectful - encounters between police and transgender people.
