Inmate Admits Sex Assaults at Women’s Prison… ‘She’ Used to Be Named Steve


Reported By Malachi Bailey | September 12, 2018 at

3:50pm

An inmate in a British female prison sexually assaulted multiple fellow inmates, and it turns out the predator is actually a man, formerly known as Steve, who “identifies” as a lesbian woman.

These days, according to The Telegraph, the 52-year-old is officially known as Karen White, but was born with the name Stephen Wood. At the time of the assaults, White was undergoing sex reassignment, but had not had surgery, The Telegraph reported.

White didn’t hesitate to prey on the female inmates. Within weeks of arriving in prison, he began making lewd comments toward another inmate before he forced himself on her, according to the Telegraph.

That was not White’s only victim. He was accused of four sexual assaults in total between September and November last year, according to The Guardian. He confessed to at least two of the attacks.

He was finally moved to an all-male prison, according to PJ Media.

It’s good that he won’t be able to assault any more women in his new prison, but he should have been in the all-male prison to begin with.

The female prison where White committed his assaults did not only have female prisoners. It also had children. The prison contains a mother-and-baby unit that can accommodate up to 10 infants aged under 2, according to The Times.

This fact becomes even more shocking considering White’s past convictions. White is a convicted pedophile who was previously jailed in 2001 for an attack on a child, according to PJ Media.

Putting a convicted male pedophile into an all-female prison with infants and toddlers is not just a simple mistake. This is an example of negligence in the name of being “progressive.”

Social media users were disgusted at the news.

The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Justice claimed that it made a mistake by not looking at the predator’s history when he was transferred to the female prison, but said the offender’s history is typically taken into account. Considering the number of transgender sexual predators in prison in the U.K., it’s a mistake could easily happen again. A government survey found that there were 125 total transgender inmates in England and Wales, and 60 of them were serving time for a sexual offence, according to BBC News.

It is likely that there are even more because the list doesn’t include those who already have a gender recognition certificate.

As long as men are moved into female prisons, it is inevitable that human error will allow another case like this one to fall through the cracks.

In the United States, President Donald Trump’s administration has taken steps to avoid something similar here by sensibly relying on an inmate’s biological sex to determine what facility the inmate will be house in, according to a report in The New York Times in May. (Naturally, The Times didn’t like that one bit. The headline was “Federal Prisons Roll Back Rules Protecting Transgender People.”)

But U.K. prison officials are finding out what the Trump administration already knows — and liberals and The New York Times will never accept.

Men shouldn’t be put into women’s prisons at all.

After UK-Russia Fight Escalates, Haley Issues Bombshell Warning at UN

While critics have slammed President Donald Trump over his perceived initial equivocation in response to evidence that Russian operatives staged a poisoning on British soil earlier this month, many in his administration are unambiguous in their condemnation of the act.

As Fox News reported, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made the case this week that the U.N. Security Council must react swiftly and decisively in response to what she called an “atrocious crime.”

Following the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, which left them critically ill and threatened the health of hundreds in the vicinity, the U.K. released a joint statement by the leaders of that nation, the U.S., Germany and France condemning the attack in stark terms.

The use of Russian nerve agent novichok “constitutes the first offensive use” of such a chemical in Europe since World War II, the statement indicated.

“A British police officer who was also exposed in the attack remains seriously ill, and the lives of many innocent British citizens have been threatened,” the world leaders wrote.

The joint statement went on to offer sympathy for those involved, as well as “admiration for the UK police and emergency services for their courageous response.”

In Haley’s comments Wednesday to the U.N. Security Council, she made it clear that America “stands in absolute solidarity” with the U.K. in the wake of an incident she warned could easily strike closer to home.

“If we don’t take immediate, concrete measures to address this now, (Britain) will not be the last place we see chemical weapons used,” she said.

Haley explained similar agents “could be used here in New York, or in cities of any country that sits on this council.” 

Haley struck back directly at Russian allegations that Western nations “criticize them too much,” adding that if “the Russian government stopped using chemical weapons to assassinate its enemies,” then those critics “would stop talking about them.”

In addition to her harsh rebuke of the poisoning, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced this week the nation’s decision to impose a range of punitive measures. A total of 23 Russian diplomats have reportedly been kicked out and the U.K. canceled several intergovernmental contracts between the two nations.  In announcing the decision to expel nearly two dozen diplomats, May told British officials that the move would “fundamentally degrade Russian intelligence capability in the U.K. for years to come.”

She also signaled the initiation of further probes into the attack and additional action against Russia. The White House expressed support for those measures in a statement from press secretary Sarah Sanders. She confirmed that the U.S. is “working together with our allies and partners to ensure that this kind of abhorrent attack does not happen again.” 

Sanders also denounced the public poisoning in her comments this week, asserting that the “latest action by Russia fits into a pattern of behavior in which Russia disregards the international rules-based order, undermines the sovereignty and security of countries worldwide, and attempts to subvert and discredit Western democratic institutions and processes.”

As UK Slams Trump for “Islamaphobic Tweets,” Their Terror Levels Hit Record High

Despite complaints from U.K. officials about President Donald Trump’s decision this week to retweet the allegedly “anti-Muslim” video posts of a British anti-Islam activist, evidence suggests both Trump and the activist he retweeted have valid points about radical Islam’s presence in Europe — and especially the U.K.

In a stunning report published Wednesday, The Guardian revealed that “the number of people arrested for terrorism-linked offences (in the U.K.) rose by more than two-thirds to a record 379 in the 12 months to June — one of the most intense periods for terrorist attacks in recent history.”

Of those 379 suspects, nearly a third were eventually charged with terrorism offenses, while nearly 18 percent still face further investigation.

The publication of this report occurred on the same day that Trump retweeted three video posts from British activist Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of British First, a reportedly “far-right” political party that opposes mass migration.

One of the video posts showed radical Muslims pushing a teenage boy off a roof and then beating him to death, while the second video showed Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. According to The Daily Wire, the first video was shot in Egypt five years ago, while the second video was shot in Syria one year later. In a third video retweet, a Dutch boy could be seen beating up another Dutch boy, though Fransen mistakenly claimed one of the boys was Muslim.

Following the U.S. president’s retweets, a number of prominent British officials condemned Trump, including Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London.

British Prime Minister Theresa May chimed in as well, decrying Britain First as “a hateful organization” that “seeks to sow division and hate and mistrust in our communities,” according to ABC News. “It stands in opposition to our fundamental values we hold as a country.”

But as noted by Robert Spencer, a Fox News contributor known for his criticisms of Islam, those castigating Trump seemed more focused on whom he retweeted versus the actual content of the tweets.

“I have not seen any Muslim spokesmen say, ‘There is a problem (in Islam) we need to deal with,’” he said in a statement to Breitbart. “They are all just criticizing Trump. … (Former President Barack) Obama did everything he could to whitewash the image of Islam — Trump is calling attention to atrocities that are committed in the name of name of Islam.”

As well as the rise of radicalism across the world, but especially so in the U.K.

Socialism at Work: British Feds Ban Surgery for Smokers and the Obese

Socialized medicine is a wonderful, compassionate system that brings important care to everyone… at least, that’s what leftists in the United States and Europe keep insisting.

As the United Kingdom is finding out, however, everyone is not actually equal under health care socialism. As soon as the system starts running out of other people’s money, people are quickly pushed out… and you’d better hope that you’re not one of the unlucky ones who gets thrown aside!

That’s exactly what happened this week in Britain, as the socialized National Health System announced that patients are being banned from important surgeries if they happen to be a bit overweight or smoke tobacco.

Yes, oh-so-caring socialism is now discriminating against its subjects and deciding who receives surgery and who does not based on personal lifestyle decisions.

“The restrictions — thought to be the most extreme yet to be introduced by health services — immediately came under attack from the Royal College of Surgeons,” explained the U.K Telegraph.

“Its vice president called for an ‘urgent rethink’ of policies which he said were ‘discriminatory’ and went against the fundamental principles of the NHS,” the British newspaper continued.

Many British patients have already seen long delays for care, with some operations being put on hold for months as the socialized system struggles with financial instability.

Medical experts bashed the government’s decision, and made it clear that the bureaucracy was not helping patients.

“This goes against clinical guidance and leaves patients waiting long periods of time in pain and discomfort. It can even lead to worse outcomes following surgery in some cases,” declared Ian Eardley, senior vice president of the Royal College of Surgeons.

The national health system insisted that the surgeries being delayed were non-urgent, but patient advocates were not convinced.

“The new rules increase the amount of weight the heaviest patients must lose —  and crucially, they mean those who fail to lose weight or give up smoking could wait indefinitely,” reported the Telegraph.

In other words, a patient who is overweight and not able to drop the exact number of pounds dictated to them by the government might never receive surgery he needs.

Conservatives were routinely mocked during the run-up to Obamacare when they warned about “death panels” and the dangers of giving the state complete control over health care. Who’s laughing now? Telling one segment of the population, “Sorry, you don’t qualify for the surgery you need, too bad” is precariously close to health panels and yes, even “death panels” that Americans rightly fear.

If socialized health systems keep losing money — and they will — then where is the limit? What prevents the cost-cutting measures from increasing to the point of a nightmare?

Every single person is unhealthy in some way. Almost every part of life, from driving a car to eating red meat to riding a motorcycle or downhill skiing can all be labeled “risky.” Will those disqualify patients from surgery soon?

If the government can cut off a patient’s access to surgery based on a weight number, why can’t it do the same for an age number? One of the biggest strains on the health care system is the elderly.

What happens when an accountant in London or Washington decides that trying to extend the life of an 80-year-old grandfather just isn’t worth the cost?

If you don’t think that is on the horizon, then take one look at the Charlie Gard case, where a sick child was denied possibly life-saving surgery by the government, even though doctors were willing and ready to take a chance for the young boy.

Nobody disputes that being overweight or smoking are poor health choices. However, a free country should focus on maximizing personal liberty and allow individuals to live their lives as they wish, in as many ways as possible.

Under a free market health care system, those who make unhealthy choices may face higher insurance expenses, but they are free to live life on their terms. They can choose to smoke and pay for it, or quit and reap the benefits, but it’s not the government’s decision.

A “Big Brother” state that tells every person how to live is the opposite of American tradition.

The more we ask the government to give us “free benefits” paid for by others, the faster we wrap chains around ourselves and give up our own freedom to live life as we wish.
