A black man is facing possible murder charges after he savagely beat a transgendered "woman" into a coma before "she" was finally taken off life support
Islan Nettles, 21, was hanging out with a group of other transgendered "women" along Eighth Avenue near 147th Street when "she" was approached by a group of men. Paris Wilson, 20, is said to have made a pass at Nettles and was shocked to learn that she was not born a woman. Humiliated in front of his crew, Wilson then got into a heated argument with Nettles and the other "women", hurling derogatory slurs at the group. The two eventually came to blows, but Wilson eventually overpowered Nettles, beating "her" to a pulp. Nettles died after being taken off of life support at Harlem Hospital and Wilson has been bailed.
