Four teens have been arrested on investigation of assault and hate-crime charges after authorities say they beat a legally blind, transgender woman who had pepper-sprayed them as she exited a Metro bus in Tukwila.
Katie HerzogThis story is insane. Teenagers make fun of a trans woman, she responds by pepper-spraying them (on the bus), they beat her (badly), get arrested on hate crime charges, and she is off the hook. WTF?
Every year, an anonymous, wealthy businessman, travels the country giving money to strangers. This year, he decided to recruit some Milwaukee bus drivers to help his mission. Steve Hartman has their story on the road.

What a DICK.
