' Binney was convicted on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor because he sexually assaulted his infant daughter so forcefully that she suffered massive internal injuries. In closing arguments Thursday afternoon, Gowdy showed jurors a graphic color photograph of the damage Binney had done to his daughter. He reminded the panel that Binney had told investigators he killed Southern because he didn’t want to go to prison as a child molester and suffer sexual abuse by other inmates. “Child molesters are weak in prison,” Gowdy said. ”(Binney) wanted to go out with a bigger bang. He wanted to go as a murderer or a rapist because they’re strong in prison.”

Prosecutors also told the jury that Binney was obsessed with child pornography and dark sexual fantasies involving children and adults. Amanda Simmons, a State Law Enforcement Division agent who conducts forensic examinations of computers, testified that she had found more than 20,000 images of adult and child pornography in Binney’s computer.'

'After hearing of Binney’s arrest, Don Thompson (Thompson), Public
Defender for Cherokee County, went to the jail to talk to Binney. Binney told Thompson that he wanted the death penalty, and Thompson told Binney not to talk to the police. Thompson met with Binney again a few days later, and Binney was still determined to get the death penalty '

'He explained that before he was tried for the CSC charge, Bannister, Binney’s lawyer at the time, told him that, if convicted, he would be sentenced to ten years, at the very least. The potential for substantial, future jail time made Binney very anxious. He went to a local shopping center and found a friend who sold him a handgun. He then went to the victim’s house and hid just off the property line and watched the house and looked for activity. Binney never met the victim before the day of the murder. He stayed in the surrounding woods overnight thinking about whether he should just go into the house “to commit suicide or rape someone, or to just shoot all of them and kill [himself].”

'The next morning, he waited until the victim and her husband left the
house and then entered the house through an unlocked window. He cut all the phone lines in the house and put kitchen knives and other possible weapons out of reach. Late that afternoon, the victim came home and found Binney in her bathroom. The victim startled Binney because he did not hear her enter the house. Binney fired the gun in her direction and then chased her out of the house. Once outside, he shot in her direction again to “keep her scared and running” and then ran in the opposite direction into the woods. He ran home and hid under his house, where he was later found by police. In his June 14 statement, Binney requested that he be given the death penalty: “the crime I committed definitely warrants it.”

Anyway, suffice to say after raping his daughter & murdering a woman with the intent to be executed, he's had a change of heart and is now a transwoman called Taylor Alex Cross, and has won a reprieve from the death penalty.

'Through a written contract signed by multiple parties, Binney/Cross agreed to never again appeal the 2002 murder conviction or punishment if sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Binney/Cross also agreed never to seek parole, even if state law is later changed.'

'Reflecting that Binney/Cross identifies as transgender and given the legal name change, defense attorneys used ink pens to correct the typed legal contract between “The State of South Carolina and Taylor Alex Cross, aka Jonathan Kyle Binney” to change all references of “he” to “she.”'

It’s RODRGD: Rapid Onset Death Row Gender Dysphoria
grin that's sick

DpWm Sun 17-Mar-19 07:22:27

It pisses me off that they've rewritten history, changing the name and changes "he" to "she" in the case despite the fact the person committed the crime as a man.

I can indeed get worked up about this whole shit parade. It'll be recorded as a woman's crime and this disgusting human has received a lighter sentence now.

It's a way of controlling everyone around them it's nothing to do with having gender dysphoria.

I’ve been calling this POGD - Prison Onset Gender Dysphoria.

It’s surprisingly common on both sides of the Atlantic.

If 50% of female prisoners were in for sexual offences, you might actually have a valid point, Skyzalimit

Update: An earlier version of this article relied on information contained on the Ministry of Justice website, which wrongly stated that Rye Hill houses "any prisoners". In fact, G4S, which runs the jail, has confirmed that it now has only sex offenders as inmates. We have corrected the article - it now makes clear that “only five of the eight prisons house only sex offenders” (the earlier version referred to “only a few of these prisons house only sex offenders” and contained an erroneous reference to Rye Hill). Fair Play For Women have also asked us to add that in May 2018, a freedom of information response from the Ministry of Justice, indicated that – based on data from the Annual Offender Equalities Report 2016/17 – there were 125 transgender prisoners in UK jails, 100 in male prisons and 25 in female prisons. The MoJ’s response in full can be seen here and are glad to clarify matters. 18/10/18

Oh dear, someone didn't get their facts straight 🦉

I despair at a court spending the time and effort to change pronouns for this pos

TheInebriati Fri 19-Apr-19 08:14:21

Imagine defending the rights of sex offenders over those of their victims, and then trying to paint yourself as progressive.

BlytheSpiritsSpirit Fri 19-Apr-19 08:54:40

The point is, we've been told over and over (and over) that our fears would never come to pass, that we were hysterical, that this never happens.

And yet, here we are. It does happen, it will happen more often - ever heard of prisoners converting to Islam for jail perks?

BettyDuMonde Sat 20-Apr-19 08:38:17

If you had bothered following my link you would know that the Independent settled out of court, compensating Fair Play For Women for the wildly inaccurate story they published by Owl (Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir).
Y’know, the one you just tried to use as a rebuttal...


Ereshkigal Sat 20-Apr-19 08:43:28

Also if she'd bothered reading to the end of her own link, Betty. I posted the correction the Independent made below.

BettyDuMonde Sat 20-Apr-19 08:47:20

Eresh grin

In fairness, the Independent shoulda probably made that correction a bit more prominent, y’know, especially for those people that can’t be arsed to read the entire article 🤣

Here's another convicted criminal celebrating his records being sealed now he has changed gender :

Who knows what he did? sad

Thanks Betty. So a man with a 16 year criminal record which includes forgery, deception and drugs offences, can get his record wiped clean just by declaring himself a woman?

Nope, no criminals are going to take advantage of this, no siree hmm

mathanxiety Sat 20-Jul-19 04:35:49

Skyzalimit what do you mean by "bad" here - hopefully no implication that the brutal rape of a baby and the murder of a woman are nothing short of evil?

And as to the comments about tarring with the same brush - women are routinely treated as a class of harpies who are assumed to be 'asking for it' when raped.

Women were as a class treated as inferior for thousands of years and given the legal status of chattel) still are in many parts of the world). Women were denied the vote, denied the right to have control over their own money, to work, to say no to sex if they were married, to control their own fertility.

I saw this case on forensic files and that episode ended with him being sentenced to death.. he asked for death also. His motive for killing this stranger was because after he was charged with raping his 3 month old daughter giving her internal damage he didn't want to go to prison. As a child molester because he didn't want men raping him in prison. So he murdered a lady he didn't even know. What I find amusing about this story is he didn't want to be raped yet he is now living as a woman, well good luck with not getting raped cause even in protective custody inmates still get raped. They wouldn't let him be housed with woman unless he had a sex change. I doubt the state would pay for that? What a weird case🤔

chopper357 Thu 19-Dec-19 02:49:33

responding by "I don't believe in the death sentence" is the most stupidest, uneducated responses for a human on this earth. We all believe in justice; let one of your loved ones die at the hands of another and your'll entire argument will fall apart. Outrageous. Waist of gravity comes to mind.

Bezalelle Thu 19-Dec-19 08:02:24

* We all believe in justice*

Not everyone's idea of justice is the same.

OnlyTheTitOfTheIceberg Thu 19-Dec-19 08:22:42

We all believe in justice; let one of your loved ones die at the hands of another and your'll entire argument will fall apart.

I’m sure if one of my loved ones was murdered I probably would want their killer to die, in my grief and rage. Which is why we don’t have our justice system defined and administered by grieving relatives of murder victims, but by those who can (ideally) apply justice rationally, fairly, proportionately and with due regard to all relevant facts.

@chopper357: Justice and revenge are not the same thing.

Michelleoftheresistance Thu 19-Dec-19 09:31:10

This wasn't a 'trans person doing something bad', this was a man who in every way identified as a man, brutally murdering a baby girl and a woman in the most self serving possible way.

Who has now, purely by identifying as trans, gained a major reduction in sentence. Thus proving how useful the trans narrative is to sexually offending males. There are numerous other examples of this.

Tar who with what brush? Do I believe that other violent and abusive men guilty of abhorrent crimes may use the 'now I'm a woman' card to gain privilege, attention and quite possibly access to more female victims? Yes. I absolutely do, because of the gaping loopholes around the law and the trans narrative.

Do I believe it's unutterably offensive to people born female that this appalling male who destroyed two females can put on woman like a costume and be pandered to? Yes. Abhorrently offensive.
