California Stupidity Installment #32: Paying for Sex-Change for Convicted Murderer

How do you describe the abject insanity that comprises what is just another day in California?

In addition to funding free college tuition and free healthcare for illegal aliens, now California has funded it’s first sex-change operation for a convicted killer in prison serving a life sentence.

According to a Sacramento News station,

“California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole.”

If this makes no sense whatsoever to you, you’re not alone. California is dumping dangerous and violent felons back onto the streets due to a lack of space thanks to Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s so-called reforms—AB109, Prop 47 and Prop 57, which are nothing more than early release programs.

Farida Baig, whose father was kidnapped, held for ransom and murdered by the transgender murderer, Shiloh Heavenly Quine, puts it in perspective.

“My dad begged for his life,” said Farida Baig, who tried unsuccessfully to block Quine’s surgery through the courts. “It just made me dizzy and sick. I’m helping pay for his surgery; I live in California. It’s kind of like a slap in the face.”

This is a slap in the face of every California taxpayer. And it’s despicable for California prison officials to waste public dollars on making a cold-blooded murderer more comfortable simply because the prisoner pulls the transgender card. After the operation is completed, they’re going to transfer this 57-year old murderer to a women’s prison.

I’m sorry, but since Shiloh Heavenly Quine murdered a 33-year old father of three as a biological male, doesn’t it make sense for that same person—a male—to suffer the consequences?

Quine told a prison psychologist who recommended her for the operation that it would bring a “drastic, internal completeness.”

And prison officials have trotted out the 8th Amendment claiming the sex reassignment surgery is justified by a diagnosis of “gender dysporia”.

Seems like a clever excuse to avoid the punishment of living in a violent, dangerous world of his own making. Using transgenderism as the rationale for a state-sponsored sex change in order to move to a less violent environment is simply the excuse du jour.

Only in California.
