Statement from Governor Martin O'Malley on Baltimore County Hate Crime Case

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor Martin O'Malley issued this statement today following the hate crime charge in the beating of Chrissy Lee Polis last month in Rosedale:

"I want to commend Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger for using every available means to prosecute the heinous beating of Chrissy Lee Polis last month.

"Even with Maryland's 'hate crimes' law, it is clear that more must be done to protect the rights and dignity of transgendered people. In the struggle for justice and equality for all, I'm committed to working with the Maryland General Assembly during the next legislative session to increase awareness and provide even greater protections for transgendered people.

"As some have noted, out of this awful beating has come a moment to foster a deeper understanding and respect for the dignity of all persons. We should not allow the moment to pass without greater action."
