Alleged rape victims speak to CNN

#OpMaryville — For Immediate Release

Greetings, World.

We are Anonymous.

Over the past few days we have witnessed the internet unite around a single cause, justice for Daisy Coleman, her friend Paige, and their families. Netizens from around the world have come together, not only to defend victims of rape, but to attack a system that has continuously failed to punish rapists for their crimes. We have been horrified to discover the extent to which police and state officials are willing to go to protect themselves, and their allies, at the expense of these victim’s honor.

– First, we address Maryville’s Sheriff Darren White:

Dear Sheriff, what could we possibly have done to offend you? It was obvious to us at the onset of our campaign that your role in this travesty of justice was minimal. You’re just a small town guy, with no where near the authority required to effectively cover up the rape of a 14-year-old girl. We know you couldn’t if you tried. There are important people that need to be held accountable for this, not you.

Also, please don’t patronize us for being economically challenged. Our parents are decent, hardworking folk. They weren’t really using the basement anyway, except to store this old ping-pong table and it’s not in the way or anything. So, if we have to stay down here for a while with a bunch of rusty old tools and 30-year-old stacks of Playboy magazines (don’t tell mom) until we can get back on our feet, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Since you brought it up, if for instance one wanted to, saaaay… apply for a job with the Maryville Sheriff’s Department, how would one go about doing that?

Thanks for reaching out.

P.S. I’m sorry we haven’t broken any laws. We know that would really help you out of this.

– Next, we’d like to address prosecutor Robert Rice:

Bob, can we call you Bob? Bob, we had a statement prepared earlier. And frankly, we wish we could hand that document over to you, but unfortunately, those records have been closed. Really sorry about that. I guess we’ll just have to continue to speculate about our intentions.

In spite of how brutal and gruesome the sexual assault of a 13 and 14-year-old girl really is, let’s take some time away from focusing on that aspect of this case and discuss how truly awful this entire ordeal has been for you. We understand that you have high expectations for your career and your reputation is very important to you. We just want to apologize, you know, in spite of this whole rape thing, if you feel some sort of… umm, injustice has taken place here. At any rate, you’ve clearly gone through a traumatic event and if you want to take some time off, perhaps a term or two, we’d totally understand.

Just to clarify one thing… did you just tell the press that in order for a sexual assault to occur the victim needs to prove it? Damn. Maybe you and Guy of Gisborne can take a fishing trip together. The Sheriff should have some free time coming up anyway, you know, with rape victims now being responsible for investigating the crimes against them.

– To Attorney General Chris Koster:

It must have been so disappointed for you, having become Attorney General of an entire state, to find your position so limiting. Truly, if there is any injustice here, it’s that your hands are tied. You’re the ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MISSOURI and you have no ability to exercise influence over the actions of a small-town prosecutor in your state? That’s astonishing, almost completely unbelievable. And it’s unfair, really, when you think about it. In some other circumstance, a person in your position could cowardly hide behind one law, while refusing to enforce another, the laws against raping 14-year-olds, for instance. Ironic, really. We hope one day you have the power you need to actually do you job.

To the people of the Internet:

We are not conducting this operation, you are. It is you who will find justice for the real innocents in Maryville. Please continue to support the actual victims of unspeakable crimes. Don’t let a knuckle-dragging cop, an unscrupulous attorney, or a some spineless state official provoke you into losing control or forgetting why you started fighting back in the first place. These people reek of fear. Daisy and Paige are winning. We love you. Don’t back down.

That’s all for now.

We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect Us.

Robert Rice held a press conference in the last hour announcing he’s asking for a special prosecutor to look over the case and look into re-filing charges against the 2 boys. 

Here’s the press conference-

Investigate actions of Robert Rice, Sheriff Darrin White, and evidence used

17 year old Matthew Barnett was charged with sexual assault against a 14 year old girl, and 17 year old Jordan Zech was charged with felony sexual exploitation of a minor for filming the assault of 14 year old Daisy Coleman, as well as another assault that occurred at the same time where a 15 year old assaulted a 13 year old girl, the filming occurred with a cell phone.

The assaults occurred January 8, 2012. On March 13, 2012, felony charges against Barnett and Zech were dropped. Barnett only faced a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.

Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice was interviewed by St. Joseph based TV station on March 14, 2012.

“We did have all the medical, and all the information where we could make a decision based on the evidence, and I am absolutely convinced it was the right call to do, and it was the right decision to dismiss it,” he says.

However, the rape kits performed on both the girls hadn’t even come back yet for investigators to see. There was video evidence, also the 15 year old boy plead guilty, confession to his part of the assaults, as well as possibly details pertaining to what Barnett and Zech did.

Matthew Barnett is also in a very influential family in Maryville. His grandfather is (former) Missouri Representative Rex Barnett, and Rex served on at least one committee with Sheriff Darrin White.

The conduct of Robert Rice and Darrin White is at the very least, questionable in this case. These assaults occurred in the Barnett home, while family slept upstairs, yet the charges were dropped before the rape kits even came back. The girls have been taunted, and cyber-bullied, the Coleman family had to leave town. Has the Barnett influence reached Rice and White?
