Police in Portland delayed the release of details surrounding the horrific murder of a cab driver on Easter Sunday because the subject is a transgender individual, according to conservative reporter Andy Ngo.
Police found the cab driver dead after officers responded to a report of a stabbing near Southeast Washington Street and Water Avenue, Oregon Live reported.
The suspect was transgender individual Moses Lopez, 30, of Portland, who was arrested by police at the scene and charged with with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
Radio City Cab confirmed the victim was a long-time employee with an impeccable record.
Ngo said it was suspicious that barely any details about an apprehended suspect were provided in the press release.
However, it was only until Monday afternoon Portland Police Bureau identified the attacker.
Ngo also notes how Lopez was booked days before for threatening a different person with a weapon, but was released without bail.
The journalist also noted how the individual was previously fired from working as a certified nursing assistant for engaging in abusive and threatening behavior.
Portland police are still refusing to answer when asked if Lopez is transgender.
The incident comes just weeks after the horrific Nahsivilel shooting carried out by a trans individual, which claimed the lives of six people.
It appears both law enforcement and the media are doing everything they can to protect the LGBTQ community.
As we reported last month, CBS News executives sent out a memo telling staff to refrain from mentioning the shooter’s gender identity.
The bizarre move by CBS to ban its reporters from using the word, seemingly to appease the woke mob, came despite the fact that police admitted the transgender identity of the Nashville shooter was a motivating factor in the horrific rampage.
A CBS memo from the network’s executives, obtained by The Post, said: “CBS News has not confirmed the shooter’s gender identity.”
“As such, we should avoid any mention of it as it has no known relevance to the crime. Should that change, we can and will revisit,” it continued.
