Security Guard Arrested For Removing Man From Women’s Bathroom

Update: Metro PD confirmed to The Daily Caller that they are treating the incident as a “suspected hate crime.”

A female security guard working at a Washington, D.C. grocery store was arrested Monday afternoon for physically escorting a man out of the women’s restroom after he refused to leave because he identifies as a woman.

The shopper — a young, African-American male who identified himself as Ebony Belcher to local news outlets — reportedly passed the security guard on his way into the women’s restroom at a Giant grocery store in Northeast D.C.

After seeing Belcher walk into the women’s restroom, the security guard followed him in and ordered the man to leave. When he refused, the security guard had to physically escort him out of the women’s restroom.

Upon leaving the store, Belcher called police to have the security guard arrested. D.C. police confirmed to NBC4 Washington that the woman was arrested and charged with simple assault. D.C. police told TheDC that they are treating the incident as a “suspected hate crime.”

Belcher told NBC4 that the security guard told him: “You guys cannot keep coming in here and using our women’s restroom. They did not pass the law yet.”

He told WJLA that he believed “the woman had no reason to put her hands on me,” adding that he was emotionally traumatized by the incident. “I’m hurt by this. It’s terrible… I’m distraught,” he said. “People should not be discriminated based on their gender identity.”

At least one woman was grateful for the security guard’s actions. Shopper Deana Chisholm told WJLA: “If you was born a man go to the men’s bathroom. You got a penis go to the men’s bathroom. If you are born a woman go to the woman’s bathroom. Period!”

While I agree with David as well, it's just funny how so many people throw out God and the Devil to deal with everything that we as people can't handle.

I don't condone men using women's bathrooms but I do use my common sense. This is what bothers me. We, humans have be dealing with ailments of mental and physical natures since we came to be. How, for the sake of religion, people refuse to believe that we, human beings can be born with no legs, one eye, terminal illnesses, magnificent mental capabilities yet cannot be born with the attraction to the same sex, or the feeling that you don't fit in the skin that you were born in is freaking stupid.

If a child is born with a physical or mental handicap that we have deemed worthy or acceptable, we nurture then and treat the with delicate gloves. Yet, if a male child is born with a vagina or a female born with a penis, we condemn them in the name of God. How in the hell is the Christian like? How is this God like? Why do we teach this kind of hate?
We teach our children to hate anything and anyone that we don't understand or that society deems unworthy of love.

Now, please explain how we are living in the last days again? I have been hearing this stupid saying since I was a kid and I'm 43 years old now. If, the teachings of Christ are in fact true, not the Bible, because that is not God at all, then we do not know the day nor the hour of his return. How you so called Christians keep condemning everyone to hell and trying to end the world is beyond insane. Each of you on this forum, including me lives your life the way that you want to and doesn't want anyone telling you otherwise. Yet so many of you are quick to jump on the Bandwagon when it comes to the choices of others. You idolize, fornicate, steal, cheat, gamble, etc., etc, all behind closed doors. Then you walk outside and bash those who are brave enough to live a transparent life, despite what others may say or how they may judge.

Our laws are not meant to help our people. The bible teaches of stories from the biblical days. It also condoned the rape of women, slavery, having multiple wives, murder and spoke of homosexual men.
So, would you Christians agree that those were the teachings of a loving or forgiving God?

Why don't we allow God to be our judge and stop trying to take his place?

The bible says so was it in the days of Noah's so shall it be in the end. They will reap what they have sown. Speaking of Revelation, do you know that we are living in the third Chapter of Revelation??? If you want to have an idea what will take place read the fourth Chapter all the way to the end of Revelation.

the article stated that the security guard said,

“You guys cannot keep coming in here and using our women’s restroom. They did not pass the law yet.”

I'm a little confused.  If her statement is correct, meaning the law has not been passed as yet, then what law did she break?

Can someone enlighten me?

This is the Devil at work. What sense do it make to change yourself and then want everyone to change who they are. I'm a Woman! I share my bathroom at home with the males in my family, but the public restroom, NO WAY will I share with a strange Man! Now That's a Violation of All Women's Rights! Come on People, when do you think it's ENOUGH!!!

Many people don't beleive in GOD anymore , they just do what makes them feels good without any morality. Revelation: the last book in Bible, teaches us of the mark of the beast...666 the brand, either you are with them are agains them. This is truly the new with men and women with are they going to produce children? Whats next!! Testtube babies for the new race. The devil always tries to tear apart what GOD put together. My opinion to all those people who are living a feel good lifestyle is to take a plane ride...go up beyond the clouds then look down out the plane widows, then you will get a good perspective of how small we are and you may come to the realization that there is something in this world that is far mush greater that I, and that something is my hevenly Father, for it is he that made us and not we ourselves and we all are his sheeps. Some sheeps stray, but we must find our way back in his good grace.

Still think we are not in the last days? If they can make a law like that and have the police enforce it, what law will they pass next time? I'm just waiting to see when Americas mother (England) does the same.

They arrested the Guard for assault on the trans that called the DC Police. The store "GIANT" supermarket won't back the Guard, apparently someone/customer has to complain. Unlike shoplifting or assault, where the Guard could make a citizens arrest.

The people wanted change and this is the change we unfortunately got. Eight years of degrading the moral fiber of the land and four years of the same promised by Hillary.
