Misinformation Coming From Facebook #OpMaryville #Justice4Daisy

A Facebook page called Justice For Daisy Coleman is spreading misinformation about Daisy’s rape.

This is what was in the “about me” portion of the page:

image

I personally have never heard Daisy say she was drugged. The only thing close was “she drank a clear liquid.” Alcohol (Bacardi) was recovered from the Barnett residence.

She made it clear to her knowledge she was not drugged.

image

Also here:

image

This was brought up to the admins of the page and they did take the “drugged” portion out.

image

This was part of the Kansas City Star article:

Bacardi was recovered from the Barnett home with other bottles of “clear liquids”
image

Drugs weren’t found. Her BAL at 9am the next morning was still 0.13.
image

Please disregard misinformation going around. If it’s not confirmed with science or the words of Daisy, her mom, Paige, or her mom it’s misinformation.

We don’t need all the rumors stated to be taken as facts.

Please follow @justice4daisy or @opmaryville for current and correct information. None of the actual facebook pages are legit. Only the Justice4Daisy Event Page

To also be clear: I’ve never lived in Maryville.

 

Fox News Blames Rape Victim? #opmaryville #justice4daisy

Image

The Fox News Channel may have taken its “Fair and Balanced” motto a little too far on Thursday when it invited criminal defense attorney Joseph DiBenedetto to make case for why an alleged rape victim was asking to be assaulted.

Following the news that a Missouri county prosecutor had asked for a special prosecutor to review the charge that a 14-year-old girl was raped by an older high school student in 2012, Fox News host Shepard Smith turned to DiBenedetto for a counterpoint.

“There’s no denying that from the surface it appears to be some sort of cover-up,” the defense attorney said. “But when you look at the finer details, there are telltale signs of this girl actually lying. She is leaving her home at 1 a.m. in the morning and nobody forced her to drink. And what happens? She gets caught by her mom, she’s embarrassed and the easy way out here is, ‘Mom, someone took advantage of me.’”

“But what did she expect to happen at 1 a.m. in the morning after sneaking out?” he asked. “I’m not saying — assuming that these facts are accurate and this did happen — I’m not saying she deserved to be raped, but knowing the facts as we do here including what the prosecutor has set forth, this case is going nowhere and it’s going nowhere quick.”

Smith noted that DiBenedetto’s interpretation of events was a “far jump.”

“What you’ve done, Joseph, is taken an alleged victim of rape and turned her into a liar and a crime committer,” the Fox News host pointed out. “That’s a far jump from a 1,000 miles away.”

“That’s one way to look at it,” DiBenedetto replied. “Assuming that is the case, she wouldn’t be the first and she wouldn’t be the last.”

#OpMaryville #Anonymous Press Release

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-

Sheriff Darren White Under Fire After L.A. Times Article #opmaryville #justice4daisy

794336-nodaway-county-sheriff-darren-white

Sheriff Darren White, Nodaway Co. Sheriff is coming under fire for his comments to the L.A. Times.

First his comments about Daisy Coleman not cooperating with the investigation:

“The prosecutor went after this with a fervor,” White told The Times. “It was only when the victims refused to cooperate and assist in this case that he ultimately had to drop the case.”

Before the charges were dropped, White said, Daisy twice invoked her 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination and declined to answer questions about the alleged rape. A 13-year-old girl who also was allegedly raped during the same incident “never showed up any time,” White said.

Melinda Coleman, Daisy’s mother called this “a total lie.” Adding:

Coleman said the sexual assault and videotaping charges were dropped before her daughter ever gave a deposition about the alleged rape. She said her daughter never invoked her right not to incriminate herself–to the contrary, she said, Daisy refused to sign a document saying she planned to invoke her 5th Amendment right.

Coleman said her daughter testified at a June 2012 deposition on a separate charge unrelated to the rape case, but the prosecutor, she said, spent two hours grilling the mother not about the incident, but about a woman who had publicly criticized the prosecutor’s handling of the case.

“I don’t remember him asking anything about the case at all,” Coleman said, adding that at one point Rice told her daughter she was “lying.”

Sheriff Darren White asserted Melinda Coleman refused to answer questions after their house burned down.

Coleman vigorously disputed Sheriff White’s assertion that she had refused to answer questions from fire investigators about a fire that destroyed the family’s home in Maryville after they had moved away. (The cause has not been determined.)

Coleman said that officials from the city of Maryville, Nodaway County and the Missouri State Highway Patrol came to oversee the scene of the blaze.

“I called Highway Patrol, because I was honestly afraid of the sheriff and what they might do, so I wanted to have someone else there,” Coleman said. “I talked to all of them, answered questions from all of them, and the fire chief as well, and I called my insurance company for an additional forensic specialist to look at it.”

Sheriff Darren White’s comments about Anonymous getting involved:

Press Release On Behalf Of Matthew Barnett? #opmaryville

image

Request The Missouri Attorney General Get Involved #opmaryville #justice4daisy

 daisy-coleman
To:
Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, Missouri Attorney General

attorney.general@ago.mo.gov

—————-

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?

Sincerely,
[Your name]

Prosecutor Making Excuses? #Opmaryville #Justice4daisy

#opmaryville Missouri family becomes target in small town after teen says she was raped

daisy-coleman

A Missouri woman says her family was run out of a small town and their home burned down mysteriously after her teen daughter accused a high school football player from a prominent local family of rape, according to a local report.

Melinda Coleman moved to Maryville from Albany, Mo., three years ago looking for a fresh start after her doctor husband was killed in a car wreck in 2006.

But the new life she was building with her four children in the rural, tight-knit town turned into a nightmare after her daughter Daisy, a 14-year-old freshman at Maryville High, accused a popular football player of raping her while she was drunk, the Kansas City Star reported in a bombshell story written with the family’s cooperation.

Press Release:
 
Greetings, World.
 
We are #OpMaryville
 
Two young girls have been raped in the town of Maryville, Missouri. Another high school football star, the grandson of a Missouri state official, has walked free. The people of Maryville turned their backs on these victims and one family has been forced to flee the town. Their house was later burned to the ground.
 
On January 8th, a 14-year-old girl named Daisy Coleman and her 13-year-old friend were both raped in Maryville. Evidence of this assault was captured on film. Daisy’s unconscious body was later dumped into her family’s yard, left alone for hours in freezing weather. One of Daisy’s attackers was initially in police custody, where he admitted to having sex with her while she was under the influence. He claimed it was consensual. The hospital states the young girl’s blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit and they discovered three tears inside of her body, 2-4 inches in length. When asked if a crime occurred, the Sheriff told the press, “Hell yes, it occurred… And did these boys need to be punished for it? Absolutely.”
 
One suspected rapist is Matthew Barnett, a student at the University of Central Missouri. He’s the grandson of Missouri state Representative, Rex Barnett. At 17, Barnett was legally considered to be an adult. All charges against him have been dropped.
 
We demand an immediate investigation into the handling by local authorities of Daisy’s case. Why was a suspect, who confessed to a crime, released with no charges? How was video and medical evidence not enough to put one of these football players inside a court room? What is the connection of these prosecutors, if any, to Rep. Rex Barnett? Most of all, We are wondering, how do the residents of Maryville sleep at night?
 
We have heard Daisy’s story far too often. We heard it from Steubenville, Halifax and Uttar Pradesh. In some cases, it was too late. Both Amanda Todd and Rehtaeh Parsons, girls not much older than Daisy, took their own lives after the adults, the police and the school system, failed to protect them. If Maryville won’t defend these young girls, if the police are too cowardly or corrupt to do their jobs, if justice system has abandoned them, then we will have to stand for them. Mayor Jim Fall, your hands are dirty. Maryville, expect us.
 
We Are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Join us.
