Ant: Mid_mo_mad_man: It annoys me that Fark thinks the victim is blameless in this.

So she forced him to get her drunk, rape her, and leave her passed out in the freezing cold where she could've died of hypothermia? He has no self-control? Is he incapable of understanding informed consent?


Either he's a troll or a genuine red pill rape-apologist psycho.  Neither is worth any more of anyone's time, but boy, look at what a giant asshole he is.

gja: irreverence: gja: irreverence: Mid_mo_mad_man: GoldSpider: Mid_mo_mad_man: Was he convicted of rape? No he wasn't. Only accused of rape.

I see, that's what distinguishes a "crime" from a "consequence".

Actually I was trying to say innocent to proven guilty. However it seems Fark has already found him guilty.

That's because he even confessed to the activities, you obtuse apologist.  You think guilty men have never gone free?

CERTAINLY NOT!
Just like innocent men have never been thrown in jail for decades.

/have to go pick up my eyes from floor now as they rolled right out of my sockets.

THE SYSTEM ALWAYS WORKS YOU GUISE.

There tends to be a huge outcry when the system fails a child on a deeply disgusting level.  I'm not sure why this f***head seems to be focusing on the misguided actions of a child rather than the deliberate, overt and shameless actions of an adult.  Even if the rest of us held the insane belief that the child deserved any blame, SHE has been punished many times over in ways that the adult sh*thead can never imagine.

I actually don't care if these guys are considered adult or not. At certain levels of criminal activity I feel there needs to be no distinction between a teen and an adult. Things like rape, murder, homicide, etc.. need to be punished fully or what you end up with is a system that becomes marginalized in value by it's very nature.
There needs to be equality in meting out justice. Right now, as things stand, things are pretty off in that respect.


Fair points, all of them. I am trying too hard to drive home the hard points of this particular case, but this type of attitude carries over regardless of specifics. The fact that overwhelming evidence was summarily dismissed is the biggest sore spot here. Justice has not been served, and that is not unique to this case.

You just made my point about the shiat people say on the internet. You would not,, in fact, personally be capable of dousing these unpleasant young men with gasoline and burning them alive. You might want to see them prosecuted, and convicted, and punished for their crimes - but you do not, in truth or in fact, wish to see them burned alive.

"Full bar" and "great for kids," a rapist wet dream. WTG Matt!!!!!


--------------

The food is great but there's a rapist on the staff.  So if you are an underaged girl or have an underaged girl in your party better check that drink, it's probably spiked. Alcohol is his favorite method of incapacitating his victims. 

Although if you do like a side of forcible rape with your entree, bring an extra pair of underwear, he likes to keep the ones he strips off you before he rapes you and dumps you on the lawn in the freezing cold barely dressed.  His friend will even shoot video of it!!  But don't worry he's politically connected so any and all charges will be dropped. Oh you'll also be run out of town and your house burned to the ground.  See, fun for the whole family!!

But hey, every woman wants him, just ask him, he tweets all about it.

Maryville MO, where rapists are just good kids acting like typical teenagers and victims are whores that asked for it!!

------------------------------------

I for one, like my gyros to come with a side of rape.

----------------------------------

If I could give this zero stars i would .certainly not a family friendly establishment considering they employ of a known rapist . Disgusting

---------------------------------

Top notch establishment. Fantastic clientele - so glad the good people of Maryville kicked those Coleman harlots right outta town. It's their OWN fault for getting raped, after all! And that one employee, Matt? Quality guy. Truly the best guy ever. Don't blame him for any "criminal" acts you may have heard about- it's not illegal, just real men doin' what the lord done intended *spits into spittoon*

---------------------------------

I ate here with my great waiter MATT BARNETT.  I brought my 13 and 14 year old teenage daughters here one night last week.  The food is fine but you HAVE to try the rapeburger with rapefries and the nightly drink special "rape on the beach".  If you order from MATT BARNETT he'll even make you apologize for ordering from him after the meal because his g-pa owns the place.


-------------------------------

Make certain you don't get over-served or Matt Barnett might have consensual sex with you.

He described himself as AG's biatch on his Facebook page. I'm glad people know AG employs this man. If people know where he is, they can avoid him.

--------------------------------

Matt Barnett  told me this great joke about how it doesn't matter what letter a girl's name starts with, they all want the "D."  Get it?  It means all girls want him all the time, so it's not really rape.

He's a great waiter, and, from what I've read, it sounds like he's an even better rapist (allegedly). 5 stars.

I know that here in Oz electoral boundaries are based on numbers of people - so city areas are pretty small in relation to some of the HUGE country ones - but still about the same amount of people.  Did not know that this was not the case in the USoA, but it does explain to me certain problems in your country (namely how the fark did soooo many stupid farks get soooo much power ... too say nothing of Bush TWICE!?!?!)  Oh and I have had a problem with your electoral college for a long time - seems like it was put there to stop 'undesirable' outcomes and nothing else.

Zik-Zak: Mid_mo_mad_man:I never said I didn't think he did it. I was saying he might have know the juror would never convict the boys. Looking at the town's reaction that's the most likely outcome.

This actually makes sense. Is it possible to get a change of venue, or does he have to go to trial in that town?

/clearly not a lawyer


Change of venue happens all the time. It would have been the right move in this case.

GoldSpider: fiddlehead: The vast majority of rape victims are raped by family members, friends, dates, and SOs/spouses. What teaching moment shall you mansplain to them, avoid all men?

Yeah, better to just accept that if it's going to happen, it's going to happen.  The sooner our daughters learn that, the better, I suppose.


Did I just find Clayton William's FARK handle?

A town like that is a real American treasure. Farkers should all get together and let them know how much we adore and appreciate such solid, upstanding examples of Americana:
 Their City Council

City Staff
Their "Request Center", which has been set up to provide an open dialogue!

jso2897: Son of Thunder: jso2897: Son of Thunder: dpaul007: Mid_mo_mad_man: People like you scare me more then this Matthew gentlemen. You read one article and get your lynching rope. The DA didn't think he could get a conviction. End of story.

Whereas you read the same one article, and you get the white armor out of your closet. Two sides, same coin, end of story.

TFA: sheriff's records include his interview, in which he said that although the girl said "no" multiple times, he undressed her, put a condom on and had sex with her.

Given the choice, I'll take "rope" over "armor" and not lose a moment's sleep over it.  Burn these guys and the idiots defending them.

You just made my point about the shiat people say on the internet. You would not,, in fact, personally be capable of dousing these unpleasant young men with gasoline and burning them alive. You might want to see them prosecuted, and convicted, and punished for their crimes - but you do not, in truth or in fact, wish to see them burned alive. Nor do you actually wish that on their defenders.
You said something really ugly, that you didn't REALLY mean. And, I know you - and it is not out of character for you.
Or did you? Are you going to "back it up?"
If you don't, shall I call you a "liar", or a "coward"?
In short, lighten up, Francis - and get over it.

So when you falsely accused me of being a racist and sexist, you were not in fact accusing me of being a racist and sexist?  No, your apple looks nothing like that orange.

You are the only person here who thinks jso2897 is an interesting subject. I am going to go talk to the people who think that the subject we are actually discussing here is interesting. Have a nice day!


Troll and roll

A change of venue for the DA's office? Lol. The DA would have to ask the circuit judge for a change of venue. They are much rarer for the Prosucuter to get then the defense. Just because you couldn't get a conviction doesn't mean you can't get a fair shake

Because I happen to be involved indirectly with this situation and probably shouldn't say anything, aw fark it, here we go.

1. Know the father of the video taping child personally, does not own a restaurant.  Works at a local factory as a supervisor of IS and a local grocery store. night stockman  Apparently getting an amateur child pornographer of of a sentence is expensive business. which causes you to go bankrupt and take a second job.  Also there is the matter that his other son was involved with drugs and had to be moved around in order to keep competing at sports because of *trouble*

2. Many of the people involved are in the local Mason's lodge.  There was a conspiracy and the Sheriff and Prosecutor are both members.  There was even some change in leadership of some of the things that transpired.

3. Matt Barnett, - The Rapist (tm) was also pulled over at that time for a DUI(a month or so).  He has been rumored to be involved in dealing drugs as well, but his grand daddy made some calls and Football continues.

4. Various people in the town have acted as if, these teens were just being teens.

5.  The parents in this matter were never brought up on charges for distribution to minors.  Apparently the alcohol magically appeared and the kids distributed liquor to each other.  This also happened in their house where no one was paying attention to the children below as they got drunk and rapey.

6. The iPhone with said video apparently lost the video.  This was after 2 months analysis when the normal waiting period for those kind of crimes is 3 to six months.  Also read up on wear leveling of flash drives.  Files do not disappear from iPhones unless they have been filled up and destroyed.  The way this video was said to have been distributed around school says that said video is still out there and exists.  So perhaps someone might be able to find it.

7. As someone else said, "I can't apologize enough for my town."  Not everyone from that town is a piece of shiat.  Although there are a lot of them.  Part of me wants to stick around and try and change the tide of how things are.  Other parts of me wants to leave and abandon all hope for the place.

vudukungfu: Football player with a Republican politician daddy?
I'm sure he has an alibi.


I am sure political party has everything to do with it.  I keep thinking about how the lives of women involved with Bill Clinton (or any of the Kennedys) are going and how they were treated by Democrats.

I think this happened because, for the first time in his life, the young man was exposed to a girl who wasn't already his sister/cousin/aunt/niece, and the exotic thrill was too much for his little simian brain to process. But then, he realized that "Iff'n she ain't good enuf fer paw and granpappy, she ain't good enuf fer me."

Is there ANYBODY in small-town Missouri with a family tree that forks?

When a local population's biases create an impossibly high standard of proof, a change of venue is a perfectly reasonable request.
