Cop disciplined after ‘mis-gendering’ trans person

One Fort Lauderdale police officer is facing disciplinary action after he “mis-gendered” a transgender person on a reckless driving ticket issued in late January.

Four days after being pulled over for drag racing a Ford Mustang in a Chevrolet Camaro, Shelby Kendall, who was born male but began identifying as a woman in 2014, filed a complaint with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department’s Internal Affairs, according to The Sun-Sentinel.

The ordeal took place when Officer James Brinton noticed the Camaro drag racing the Mustang down a four-lane public road. He followed the black Chevy into a Winn-Dixie parking lot, where Kendall was ticketed.

“I wasn’t really contesting why I was pulled over,” Kendall said. “I was more contesting how I was treated.”

Brinton went before the Citizens Police Review Board on Monday after referring to Kendall as a male on a reckless driving ticket, despite the fact that the real estate agent’s driver’s license features female pronouns.

“If I’ve done everything I need to do for the state of Florida to recognize me as a female, he doesn’t have a right to purposely mis-gender me,” Kendall said of the police officer. “It was inappropriate and kind of bullying and sends a message to the transgender community.”

But according to Brinton, he wasn’t trying to bully the 48-year-old Fort Lauderdale resident. Instead, the officer said he believed the driver’s license information showing Kendall as female was a mistake, so he listed Kendall as male.

    The cop should be thanked for pulling the racer aside, no matter what ‘it’ was. If this person is a Realtor, his license should be suspended. If just an agent, they are not held to higher standards of ethics.

    HE. SHE. IT. Put an X for gender. Was the plumbing changes or just the state of mind. Howmany lives were saved from this speeding X.

    Now i see.. Trannies become immune to the law simply by claiming “it was the other me, I’m going to sue for ticketing or charging “this’ me””

      you got it. Obummer put into effect the last 2 alinsky steps and now we are going to have one hell of a time correcting it.

  • Ruckweiler

    Transvestites are sick puppies. The officer was probably as confused as the rest of us.

    • mousekiller

      Look around. every where you go it is getting harder and harder to tell the difference between the sexes. Long hair, skinny jeans, ear, nose rings and they call themselves men. Really?got the gear man up. Do not expect me to take even 5 seconds to figure out your sex.

      • Juanita

        This is a NWO strategy to destroy identity. It is also the attempt by males and females wishing to be the opposite gender to force the rest of the world to tell them what they want to hear. They would not be so insistent if they believed that they had really “changed” their gender.

  • jim jones

    Too bad the perverted asshole didn’t reach for something; so the officer could have justifiably put it out of it’s misery!

    • whoda guy


  • Kurt Kruse

    This crap about these type of assholes is beyond stupid.If you look like a male,act like a male,but choose to mentally self identify as a female,that’s on you! The rest of the world does not, nor should
    it be forced to join in with you and your personal mental issues. Not only do the members in the LBGT community and their enforcement arm the Rainbow Mafia.,want 99.9% of our planet to bend to their nonsense? If these misguided individuals are to win with their bulling tactics? Who’s to say that next bit of crappola we will face,is pedophiles demanding that their mental delusions have a place in our communities,and that of our children’s safety and welfare, are now incidental to the mentally
    challenged individual will attack their youth and their innocence.So what we as a planet of mixed races,interests, ambition,actual physical gender identifiers, now must also give credulous to those who look like females /.males but wish to mentally identify as a different sexual gende, and they want us to do so as well, Really?

  • John Wolf

    Beat the hell out of a innocent person for simply jay walking and get a pay raise but label a mentally ill man that is speeding and putting lives in danger a male you get disciplined. He should have gone for the pay raise.

  • valleevue

    OK! Chill out now…….Reckless driving is the issue…the primary issue.

  • ch

    This Drag Queen/King was Drag racing. That means whatever was behind the wheel gets a ticket, end of story. If you want to be a toaster and someone calls you a different appliance because you look like a microwave, that is YOUR problem.

  • Samuel Stephens

    This has to be the most stjpid thing I have read in some time, disciplined for misnaming a sex gender! God made 2 genders male and female, she, him not a question mark or I’m a man but today I feel like a women. Thats garbage.

  • srw

    Police hve enough going without this ….

  • bob breglio

    Just call all these confused persons Tinkerbelle and that should be the end of the problem. If this idiot hadn’t been breaking the law he/she/it would NOT have been pulled over to begin with.

  • BudBob

    Check his pants and chromosomes and both would find the officer to be correct !

  • Ed Forney

    Any Captain that gives this officer any kind of discipline, is not going to be liked by the rest of the force !

  • Duane A. Fisher

    This is plain BS. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say Special Class have special rights! And this THING thinks it is special. Yea ,Special Ed.

  • Brandy

    Who knows what these freaks of nature are, If this thing was born a male then it is a male and the Police Officer was correct and should demand an apology and sue !

  • Donald Johnston

    How absurd! If he/she still looked enough like a man or was dressed like a man how is anyone supposed to know the difference? I’m fed up with this whole LBGTQ nonsense. If they don’t know what they are how are we supposed to know?

    • whoda guy

      just look in the mirror. if you see nads. . .your a man so act like it.

  • Dan Williams

    Whoever is to discipline the cop, should be severely disciplined themselves for being incompetent in human resources and internal affairs.

  • Philomena

    God Help us all.

  • Older Than Dirt

    Let’s do away with gender – neuter everyone and in a few years there won’t be any country left to fight over such things. The problem is that regular people are being bullied and told that being
    straight in now wrong ! I don’t have a problem until I am told that I HAVE TO BOW to them as
    a PC response. That then makes them MORE EQUAL than me violating my rights making me less
    equal because of the choice they made. I believe that the Constitution says that “all men are
    created equal” – not some minority being MORE equal because they demand it ! and the PC peo-
    ple want to show how liberal they are at MY expense. Most of the libs I know are more bigoted
    than I have ever been and they revel in their “fake goodie two shoes” attitude ! Bet you will see
    it in their replies : )

    • whoda guy

      The liberal vermin is spreading their garbage all over the TV, Movies, internet. and are influencing people that their sick life style is the norm. Screw PC, look where it got us.

      Vote all liberal agendas out of office. Look what they have done to the U.S. in such a short time. It only takes 1-generation to brainwash a nation.

    should have listed IT as a failed science project or just plain FREAK

    To prevent any confusion just mark shim on DL so that it covers everybody!

  • A. Jay

    Where is the problem here? Give the cop an award for putting its true identity on the ticket. The individual regardless of what it claims to be is the screwed up one here!

  • jjmcl431

    B.S. he is no more a woman than a apple tree is. he is just a screwed of faggot.

  • whoda guy

    less than 4% of the population is queer. Who’s the fools?

  • Bimu

    Simple question…”If the police are to protect and treat everyone equally, then why are the police not given that same respect.” It is as though in today’s screwed up America that everyone has exact equal rights and when that logic is carried out to the end, both positive and negative, why is this person of changed sexuality given special preference ? Today’s society has become not much more than manipulated con jobs !!!

  • Old teacher

    And how do we jail these people? Males in female confinement because they identify that way? My county lock up here where I live does it solely by your anatomy….No other questions asked.

  • Paul

    Stop the press. More inane and trivial news about hurt feelings. Grow up.
    Lets focus on real issues like the exploding cost of health care.

  • Ron Allen

    Was “she” appropriately dressed? They want to mentally change but physical appearances stay the same. How are we to know? Bunch of crap.

  • blackwingA520

    If I get stopped for speeding I’m going to say “I identify as a Cop today” and the cop will just let me go because I’ll be one of their own.

  • Charlotte Deneice Windham
  • Joyce White

    Shelby, you should see a psychiatrist. your condition is a mental disorder. You are a male from birth. You are what your DNA says you are, not what your head says you are.Get some help.

  • Janis

    Somebody should tell “Ms” Kendall that it is totally unbecoming of a 48 year old Real Estate Agent “Lady” to be drag racing. That type of aggressive behavior is almost exclusively performed by testosterone-laden males.

  • Jeannette K. Miller

    Transfruity needs to be out into place the cop should call it and it.
