While Carissa Pinkston has modelled for brands such as Prabal Gurang, Edie Parker, Coach and Marc Jacobs, the 20-year-old really made waves when she linked with Rihanna for her Savage X Fenty collection. Carissa became relatable to some and probably even a role model since she identified as a transgender woman but unfortunately, it was all lies.
Things started to crumble with Carissa got exposed for past tweets she made that came f as disrespectful to the LGBTQ community. “Being Transgender does NOT make you a woman. It makes you simply Transgender,” one post read, Paper Magazine. “Being Transgender does not make you a woman in a Transgender context according to gender and sex ….] This is how they want to be perceived. In a biological context there are Females and Males. This is the world in 2019.”
Carissa apologized for her comments in an ficial statement but still clung to the lie being a transgender woman, detailing how she transitioned at a “very young age.” Finally, seemingly after the death threats continued, Carissa finally told her truth:
“I apologize for any transphobic remark I’ve ever made towards the Trans community,” she wrote in a post that has since been deleted. “I panicked and I thought if I came out as Trans that I could somehow make things better for myself but it appears I’ve only made things worse. I’m truly sorry. I’m only 20 and I’m human. I make mistakes but I refuse to let them define me. I hope you all can forgive me and move on from this because I’m so much more than this incident and I’m not a coward.”
Apparently, there’s no age limit to commit murder. Albert Flick, 77, was convicted murder in 1979. 40 years later, he was convicted a near-identical crime after a judge decided against giving him a longer sentence. He was convicted murder in 1979 and sentenced to 25-years in prison. After being released, he was locked up once again in 2010 for assaulting a woman. The judge decided against giving him a longer sentence, as recommended by the prosecutors, because his age.
“At some point, Mr. Flick is going to age out his capacity to engage in this conduct, and incarcerating him beyond the time that he ages out doesn’t seem to me to make good sense from a criminological or fiscal perspective,” the judge said during the trial, according to the Lewiston Sun Journal.
However, the judge’s decision resulted in the death another civilian at the hands Flick. In 2014, he was released and subsequently moved to Lewiston where he developed a relationship with a homeless woman named Kimberly Dobbie. He proceeded to “stalk her,” prosecutors allege. But after he found out she had plans to leave the town, he then murdered her, stabbing her eleven times in front a laundromat.
The judge is undoubtedly hitting herself in the head over her initial decision but with his sentencing set for August 9th, it seems likely that the judge won’t oppose the prosecutor’s proposition for a life sentence.
