Re: “Anonymous' next target: Maryville, Missouri

To the idiot ( probably a friend of Barnett), who believes that a fourteen year old child should be held responsible, even minimally, for what happened to her, the laws are designed to protect minors from people with your back ass mentality. First of all, it is irrelevant that the minor snuck out of her home or that she consumed alcohol. The fact that she was intoxicated and that she was served alcohol at the party and home of her rapist, only exacerbated Barnett's culpability.

A minor cannot ever consent to sex. That's the law. Why? Because the legislators ( unlike the commenter and Barnett) recognize that a child lacks the sufficient mental and emotional capability required for consent. Additionally, the law in Missouri, as in most states also deems an intoxicated person unable to form the requisite intent needed to acquiesce or consent to sex. The laws are there protect minors, mentally challenged, and others who do not have the ability to consent. A High school senior boy who either encourages or helps a minor child sneak out of her bedroom window and then provides her alcohol and has sex with her is committing a crime against that minor - he is raping her. I am very curious and would love to get my hands on the minor's toxicology report, because it would not surprise me to discover that Barnett and his friends hurried the minor girls state of inebriation along. Did they spike those girls drinks with a date rape drug? Does anyone know? And another thing ... why in the hell does Mr. Popular senior jock have to chase after a 14 year old child? Why can't he make it with someone his own age, someone who has the legal ability to consent to having sex with him, if she wanted to. I'm most disturbed that the district attorney took no action against the boys for leaving a traumatized, intoxicated minor outside in freezing temperatures. She could have died.

Am I the only person wondering why the hell the local district attorney had anything to do with this case, given his close and personal relationship with the accused's grandfather? Can you say " CONFLICT OF INTEREST"" Hello?? Prosecutorial misconduct. This case has far more than just the appearance of impropriety ... It reeks of dirty politics laced with rancid Swiss cheese holes. He had a duty and an obligation to his constituents, the victim and her family's and the entire county to immediately recuse himself and ask the Attorney General to appoint a neutral, non biased special prosecutor to handle the case..

Best of luck to Daisy and her family. I am a mother and if this happened to my daughter I don't know what i would do . I also have a son and would do anything in the world to protect him, but we must teach our children to accept responsibility and that there are consequences for their actions. This Barnett kid may get away with this, but he's a predator and his family has never taught him about consequences ( way to go and create another sociopath to turn loose on the world), he will do it again to some other unsuspecting girl ( the Future of that girl is now in jeopardy because of this massive cover up), but predators don't stop and eventually his crimes will escalate to a level they even old pops can't finagle out of.

I am most ashamed of the people of the town of Maryville, for allowing Daisy and her family to be tortured and for standing behind an admitted rapist. What lesson are you teaching your sons and daughters. God help you.
