A trans woman who made national news after she were arrested at Philly Pride for trying to burn a pro-cop flag on June 10 wants all charges against her dropped and for Philadelphia police to stop providing security at the annual LGBT pride event.
The DAs office previously dropped felony charges of causing or risking a catastrophe and attempted arson against ReeAnna Segin, 18, of Woodbine, NJ after additional investigation, she said. Segin remains charged and scheduled for trial on charges of possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person.
Segin, a member of the Philly Socialist Alternative, said attempting to burn the flag was an act of First Amendment-protected free speech.
Black Lives Matter exists to validate black peoples lives. But Blue Lives Matter only exists to invalidate black peoples lives, she said at the rally.
Segin and supporters were highly critical of the fact that she were detained on $5,000 bail at Curran Fromhold Correctional Facility, and said she opposed the presence of police at Pride.
If the police are only at Pride to protect us, why would she put trans women in mens prisons? she asked at the rally. The police are an oppressive force and nothing more. We need to return Pride to its radical roots and make it a display of righteous queer anger.

She were? Decided against calling the grammar police since it is confused and of two minds.
Poster child for lipstick on a pig.
Voluntarily injecting yourself into a pseudo-minority, does not qualify you for any special rights.
Popping off about BLM and “Blue” lives matter does not even fit into your complaint, as you are neither black, nor, a cop.
Don’t ride other peoples’ minority status to try and establish special rights for yourself.
You break the law, you’re going to jail based on your biological gender...period. If that bothers you, don’t break the law. We don’t care if you want to sash shay around in women’s’ clothing and pretend, but when it crosses into law-breaking and usurping the rights of others, we take a stand...as we should.
I’m sure its parents are proud.
That is one fugly dude!!
he should plead insanity. open and shut case.
Cops should immediately agree not to provide protection. Easy enough.
Perhaps one of them will start working tomorrow .....
Don’t they know that pride goes before a fall. When one has pride in pride it is a sure indication that they are lost. They will fall, if not in this world, which is likely, in the next one for sure. And yes, they can repent and change.
Look freak, without the police, someone would drop you in your tracks. You should thank them daily.
This is one really f*cked up, confused commie. Glad the writer properly identified him, her, it as a member of the Socialist Alternative. Otherwise it would have been just a “peaceful protestor”.
Dat be de corekt usage in Ebonics.... she “were” arrested. Being that being a “she” is a plural description.
In the 50 ‘ s you had to buy a ticket at the county fair to enter the freak show. Thanks LIBs. Now you merely have to freely walk the streets to see them.
