This thread has information about the person charged with indecent exposure at Wi Spa in June, doesn’t show a sexual predator. Rather it shows someone being criminalized for being unhoused, trans, and a sex worker.
Darren Agee Merager was charged Monday with five counts of indecent exposure, relating to an incident inside the Wi Spa on July 23, according to a news release issued by the Los Angeles Police Department.
A group of protesters who showed up outside a Los Angeles spa on Saturday were met by a large police response resulting in more than a dozen arrests.
The protests stemmed from a video that showed a customer of the Wi Spa in Koreatown angrily confronting a staff member complaining that a disrobed transgender woman had entered into the women’s section.
The video, which was shared on social media earlier this month, quickly went viral in far-right and anti-transgender websites, but its veracity has since been put into question.
Police suspect the viral L.A. Wi Spa video is fake—but it still got two people stabbed.
