Raped in a small town? Donít just rely on the cops: call Anonymous

http://bluntandcranky.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/raped-in-a-small-town-dont-just-rely-on-the-cops-call-anonymous/


Snips:
Once again, a small town police force sides with the rapist and abuses the victim. Once again, the rapist gets off scot free. Once again, Anonymous targets the rape-loving locals. And once again, suddenly, the ďjusticeí system starts prosecuting the rapist:

Short form: A young girl got drugged and raped by a high school football star in Maryville, MO. The locals covered it up, dismissed the charges, abused the victim and her family, and generally acted like the rape-loving mother***ers that they are. Indeed, they got the victimís mother fired, ran the family out of town, and burned down their house. When the family objected, the local pig lawman said that they should just ďget over itĒ. Meanwhile, the scumsucking child-molesting rapist s***head is off at college, making rape jokes on Twitter.

Then, Anonymous got pissed off. And just like in other crappy little rape-havens across the country (like Steubenville, Torrington, et.al) people from outside of the pisspot little towns (like, say the Attorney General) started pressuring the locals to do something about the crimes except jerk off while watching the incriminating videos of the rapes. The locals have, true to form, refused to put down their puds and enforce the law, so the Staties are stepping in. Hopefully itíll end up like Steubenville, with the rapists in jail and the whole town under criminal investigation.

3. Credit should go to the Kansas City Star, not Anonymous.

 

They did a major story on this on October 12 that started stirring things up:

Anonymous came in a few days later.

And Blunt and Cranky sure hurls a lot of invective. I get the feeling he/she must be an urban dweller, where everything is peachy keen.

7. The Star does deserve kudos. But that doesn't mean Anonymous deserves no credit. Nt

5. Maybe we need a federal SVU if states won't do their jobs.

 

These closeknit communities are Good Ole Boys clubs that sweep things under the rug and continue the victimization of the victim.

8. And anonymous basement dwellers hundreds if not thousands of miles away are the ones to call.

 

I realize people are looking for heroes but we should not elevate those of who know no more than what they hear on other Internet news sites and message boards.

The Sheriff said no one wanted to cooperate. Maybe that's the case, maybe it's not. But it's certainly premature to automatically ASSUME that someone or some group calling itself Anonymous knows any more about the case than anyone else.

9. Anonymous doesn't usually provide much court-grade information.

For example, much of what they posted during the Steubenville imbroglio was either inflammatory, or at least tendentious.

What they do well is to elevate visibility, increasing pressure on law enforcement to do their jobs.

And having seen the Local Yokel on TV saying that the victim and her family needed "to get over it", I'd say there is no reason to assume that they did their jobs properly. Thus external pressure. Thus outside media and anonymous.

10. it was the prosecutor, not the cops

The cops did their jobs and took the case to the prosecutor as they're supposed to, and it was the prosecutor who refused to do anything.

Glad to know that the state is stepping in on this one.
