The Justice Department's Community Relations Service released a training video for law enforcement last week. Its aim is to "ensure that interactions with members of the transgender community are respectful, professional and safe for all involved."
Transgender Americans, like all Americans, deserve to be treated with courtesy and respect by law enforcement officers. The information provided in this video will help strengthen the relationship between police and the transgender community, allowing for more effective investigations and safer encounters for officers and citizens alike.

The video was created with support and assistance of the National Center for Transgender Equality, and PFLAG.
Rightwing news sites are, of course, appalled at this evidence of more transgender agenda from the Obama Administration.
The federal video fully endorses the transgender ideology, which insists that the government should force all Americans to accept and endorse each person’s claim about their sex, no matter what biology or logic or civic rules say. “Transgender people are just trying to be their true selves … we must make every effort to collaborate and learn from the transgender community,” claims the presenter, a D.C.-based policeman, Sgt. Brett Parson.
This federal demand for acceptance of the transgender ideology goes far beyond a request for good manners, for example, asking cops or the public to ignore transgender people quietly using a public bathroom or asking people to refer to transgender people by the names they choose.
