Help Rayne with Bills from Cop Assault

TW/CW for photos listed below

I have a friend who’s name is Rayne Dominic Valentine. I need to tell you what happened to him as he was leaving work Saturday 5/30/2020 at the hands of the NYPD.

Rayne is a man. A transman. A black transman. A black transman who is also a US Marine veteran.

Before COVID-19, he was a chef. When all the restaurants shut down, not only did he get a new job to help support himself, but the job he took is one that most couldn’t or wouldn’t do. Rayne got a job helping to stack COVID bodies. On his first day on the job, he and his coworkers loaded 45 bodies within just the first few hours, not even by day’s end. He is a healthcare hero.

Last night while on his way home from work, he had 2 choices: walk the long way around the protests near his apt or peacefully walk by said protest. He chose the latter, because honestly, who wants to walk father than they have to after working a full day’s shift. Unfortunately for him, because he, like many, thought it was right to video the cops beating people with their batons, he became a target for police. He was cracked in the head and required staples.

A BLACK, US MARINE VET TRANSMAN DOING NOTHING BUT FILMING THE BRUTALITY BECAME A VICTIM OF THE VERY BRUTALITY HE WAS FILMING.

WHY? Because he didn’t walk fast enough for the cops.

Please donate to help Rayne with any medical, legal, or life expenses as he recovers.48438872_1590960497579382_r.jpeg48438872_1590960509479359_r.jpeg48438872_159096052699653_r.jpeg48438872_1590960662207463_r.jpeg
