A transgender woman, known in scientific terms as a man, has been arrested and charged with the violent stabbing death of a cab driver in Portland, Oregon over the weekend.
According to the Post Millennial, the cab driver, whose name hasn’t been publicly released but who was identified by his company as one of their longtime drivers, was brutally murdered by his passenger while giving a cab ride on Easter Sunday. Local reports say the fare for the short drive was only about $8, but ended up costing the man his life when his rider suddenly stabbed him in the neck with a knife, seemingly for no reason at all.
A spokesman for the cab company said footage from the car’s onboard camera proved the attack was “Vicious, senseless and brutal, adding, “There was no conversation. No altercation. Nothing.”
The company confirmed the driver was a 30-year-old musician who worked the night shift.
After arriving at the scene of the crime, police say 30-year-old Moses Jacob Lopez was found standing outside the car covered in blood. He was quickly arrested and has since been charged with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
And if only someone could have seen it coming. Lopez, who presents publicly as woman according to his social media profiles, apparently has a well-documented history of making violent threats, having once posted to social media in 2015 that he wished he were a woman so he could assault other women without facing the same consequences. According to his photos, Lopez is heavily involved in LGBTQ activism, with pictures showing him participating in the leftist "No H8" campaign meant to push radical LGBTQ ideology in the name of "inclusivity."
But apparently, "no hate" only applies to certain people. On April 3, Lopez was charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of weapon and two counts of menacing in Coos County, Ore. The charges came after he allegedly threatened another person with a weapon, only to be released on bail and then failing to show up to his next court date.
The Post Millennial also notes that Lopez was fired in 2021 from his job at a nursing facility after two years of displaying “abusive and threatening behavior towards co-workers,” according to a probation order.
Lopez has pled “not guilty” to murdering the cab driver.
