The CeCe McDonald story: was she fighting back or committing murder?

In June, 2011, transgender woman CeCe McDonald and her friends were walking past a bar, when a group of patrons smoking outside shouted anti-gay slurs at them. A fight ensued, which left a man dead and CeCe with a deep gash on her cheek. CeCe was charged with his murder and, if found guilty at trial, faced 40 years in men’s prison. She took plea deal and continues to receive outpourings of support from the LGBT community.
