Adults conspire to commit hate crimes against 12 year old transgender schoolgirl (Achille, Oklahoma, USA, 10 August 2018)

Multiple adults plotted physical violence against a pre-teen transgender schoolgirl attending a rural elementary school in Oklahoma.

Via a closed Facebook parents group,  Achille ISD Parent Group, several people explicitly abused the pre-teen transgender girl for using the girls bathroom at the Achille's Elementary School and suggested that she be physically attacked by children of some of the parents participating in the comments. Comments included suggestions of specifically attacking her until she quit attending school because of fear and using a knife to castrate her as well as dehumanizing references to her as, 'the transgender', 'maggot', 'it' and 'thing'.

The posting and comments were leaked by a concerned parent and triggered a school closure for two days for the safety of all students, an emergency protective order being issued against one of the parents after they confronted the mother of the child in person, and investigation were started into whether a hate crime had been committed by both local police and the FBI.
