Peter Laing, a 23-year-old transsexual, is now known as Paris Green. Paris was imprisoned after being found guilty of helping to torture a man to death after a disagreement over a bag of “chips.” S/he received an 18-year-sentence for this brutal crime.
Originally, Paris was housed in at a men’s prison, as she had not undergone any gender reassignment surgery, so was still anatomically a man. However, after much hullabaloo, she was moved to the women’s side of another prison, as she claimed that she would feel more comfortable around other “women.”
While in the women’s wing of the prison, Paris (or should we now call her Pete again?) starting having sexual relations with a number of the women there. Despite warnings from the authorities at the prison, Paris’s behavior did not stop, so she was pulled from the female population and sent him back to the men’s section of the prison.
According to an article on Breitbart.com:
“It’s costing the Prison Service a fortune moving him from jail to jail,” said the sister of the man that Paris murdered.
“The whole thing is a joke. We don’t believe he really wants a sex change. He’s just trying to manipulate the system and the tax payer is footing the bill.”
The case follows the high-profile case of Tara Hudson, a biological man who was imprisoned for a series of violent assaults in 2015.
He was moved to a female prison after several Conservative MPs spoke out and 150,000 people signed a petition calling for him to be transferred.
Following the case, it was revealed that guidelines pertaining to transgendered people in prison are being rewritten.
