    Wandering Eye: The trans community reacts to the NSA deaths, meet one of rock's great drummers, and more
    Meet "Mykel, Shannen, Buttacup, Esha" in The Washington Post as former Sun reporter Peter Herman goes back to his old beat. The trans women hanging around 22nd and North Charles streets knew and mourn the two who made national news last week at the National Security Agency, ramming a police car with a stolen SUV and getting shot. "Mya, on the streets since 2009, was killed and a newcomer, Brittany, was injured," Herman writes. Mya, who died and whose legal name was Ricky Hall, had a long record of theft, robbery, and violence. "She had violated terms of her probation four times since an assault conviction in 2012 — piling up a steady stream of arrests and convictions for punching a woman and stealing her methadone in Old Goucher, shoplifting skirts from stores in the Hampden neighborhood, hitting a jail guard with a stick and soliciting a male undercover police officer for a $40 sex act on Charles Street," Herman writes. "She failed to pick up a court-ordered electronic monitoring bracelet that would have required her to live in a transitional housing facility that helps people recover from drug abuse and other problems." An arrest warrant had been requested hours before she stole the SUV and made that fateful turn down the ramp to the NSA. The trans women says they're unhappy with their lives. They wonder what happens now: "Asked Buttacup, a tear running down her cheek, 'Will she have a proper funeral?'" (Edward Ericson Jr.)
