Virginia Shooting Unfolds On Facebook Live

Makana Milho, a 21-year-old woman from Hawaii, has been minding her own business.

She is complying with her probation and completing her six days of community service.

Unfortunately, she has struggled to do this because sexual harassment by her supervisor has been interfering with her ability to do her work.

Her attorney, Myles Breiner, said Milho's supervisor drove her to a park when there was no one else around and asked for sex.

Milho, thinking quickly and fearing for her safety, turned to Facebook Live to secretly record and broadcast the situation:

In the video, you can hear the man promising her that she can go home early in return for sexual favors.

She said she was inspired by the actions of Philando Castile's girlfriend, who streamed her boyfriend's death on Facebook Live.

Milho had to take the video down after she faced even more harassment from victim blamers.

"The universe was spinning," Milho told The Daily Beast. "I thought he could do basically anything to me. I felt my power was stripped away from me."

She said people were making fun of her and she couldn't stand having a punchline made of something serious that happened to her.

Breiner said he agreed to advocate for Milho, a transgender person, because the judicial system has a tendency to disregard claims of sexual assault from other transgender people.

The man in the video, Harold Villanueva Jr. was charged sexual assault this week.
