I have no words, only tears.
Tears that women like Angie are killed just for existing.
Tears that the defense spent the entire trial trying to make it a matter of "deception" by misgendering her and using her birth name.
Tears that the jury saw the person beyond the spin and sent a murdering bigot to prison for the rest of his natural life.
Tears that I did not expect to see justice done.
Tears that it is a surprise.
