An email sent to KGW took credit for the bomb. It read in part:
"This action has been committed in solidarity with CeCe McDonald, a trans woman of color who rightfully defended herself from assault and has been sentenced to 41 months in a men's prison, despite her gender and valid safety concerns, as transgendered women face high instances of physical and sexual assault in men's prisons."
McDonald was sentenced to prison this week in Minnesota for a bar killing. She was found guilty of killing a man in a bar in Minneapolis.
Before being sent to prison, McDonald, who is making a male to female transition, said the incident was fueled in part by the fears generated by going through the transgender experience.
