    Nightmare in Maryville

    Didn't see this already posted but delete if so.
    Grew up very close to Maryville and not too surprised but this has now grown into way more than Nodaway county Missouri can handle with all the social media now covering this.



    Nightmare in Maryville: Teens’ sexual encounter ignites a firestorm against family - KansasCity.com

    Few dispute the basic facts of what happened in the early morning hours of Jan. 8, 2012: A high school senior had sex with Coleman’s 14-year-old daughter, another boy did the same with her daughter’s 13-year-old friend, and a third student video-recorded one of the bedding scenes. Interviews and evidence initially supported the felony and misdemeanor charges that followed.Yet, two months later, the Nodaway County prosecutor dropped the felony cases against the youths, one the grandson of a longtime area political figure.

    Our justice system is so broken.

    I read this earlier today. Sickening. Tired of reading about stories like this.

    If they were cousins, no one would care. It's illegal if it's outside the family.

    Re: Nightmare in Maryville

    Seems pretty gutless of a prosecutor to at least not pursue charges on some level. It seems to be increasingly easy for prosecutors to throw their hands up and say "lack of evidence", knowing that the public will never really know what evidence they had at their disposal. It also seems crazy to suggest lack of cooperation from the victim, as I can't imagine she would be less-than-forthcoming with the police, only to then take her story to national news agencies. To me, this reeks of police and prosectuors just chalking this awful incident up to "boys being boys", and now the national media has caught wind of it and they look like fools.

    Let's not let the legislative branch off the hook. Clearly the House Rep Grandpa intervened in some way...

    As broken as it may seem, it's still one of the best, fair in the world as a whole.

    Disgusting.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Nightmare in Maryville

    If I'm that girls brother, that kids football career would come to a screeching halt. I'm not a tough guy or violent person but that **** would be dealt with if the legal system wasn't going to do it. ****, I might not even have to be her brother. What a piece of ****. It's one thing to get away with it but to then rub it in her face and for others to rub it in her face is awful.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.
