Outting bullies, Supporting Victims, and Serious News Stories all in one

The following is a message from Daisy Coleman’s mother, Melinda Coleman, who has asked that this be publicized in efforts for their feelings toward the Maryville community be made.

We would just like everyone to know that Maryville is NOT a terrible town.  We love so many people there and really were happy there until 1-9-12.  Some families there are truly great friends!!!  The school was incredible and tried so hard to protect my children…..above and beyond the call of duty.  The coaches….even of those boys…..were great and supportive of us.  In fact, the wrestling coach and his wife are the best people you could ever know!  Truly protected us the best they could.   Our horrible experience included a few bad ones that just aggressively went after us……and some people in power that didn’t do their job or protect us.   A lot of people did support as much as they were able.  To those people I am so grateful!  And  to the people who tried to defend us but were also terrorized and threatened……I’m sorry you suffered for us but I love you dearly for trying to help us.  We wanted to stay in Maryville.  We would have stayed if there was a fair investigation and I had felt my children could be safe.  I left for fear for our safety from the family that thinks it’s a little mafia….their threats were very violent.
I would never condone an violent protest and all of the protestors have been asked to simple carry a daisy or daisies.  A reporter told me innocent people in Maryville were being threatened.  I checked in to that and found out that the only “threats” have been people sending daisies to the courthouse.  I think that sounds nice and not very threatening.  I do NOT condone violence in our defense.  I don’t want others terrorized as we have been.  I want everyone to have peace.  I also believe that having only Matt Barnett’s mother speak at the press conferences after Sheriff White and Robert Rice, the Prosecuting attorney, clearly illustrates the connection of their family and the powers to be.  It was a press release……not a pep rally.

Thank you and God Bless!
Praying for justice, no more cyber bulling or rape and fairness for all!
