    This angers me on so many levels. If I said exactly what I thought, I would be put on a permanent vacation.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Extremely disturbing on many levels. My heart breaks for those two young girls as well as their families and I hope justice will eventually prevail for them.

    Unbelievable. Let me guess the rapists were on the football team, popular guys, etc etc.

    And the "twitter storm" will begin at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. A good start.

    "...Coleman's daughter Daisy, then 14 and a high school freshman, was hosting a sleepover with a girlfriend at the Colemans' home. They were drinking alcohol, according to a report from the Nodaway County Sheriff's Office.
    Daisy had been texting with a football player, a senior, who was then 17. They decided to meet up.
    Mom: 'They're still lying about it' Family: Retaliation ended new start Rape victim's family: I want justice
    "We snuck into his house through his basement window, and I went to go sit on the couch, and he gave me a big glass of a clear liquid. And that's all I remember..."

    "...Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White told CNN that his office and the prosecuting attorney were ready to prosecute. They did not move forward because the victim and her family refused to cooperate, he said.
    "The only people's stories that have been inconsistent throughout this whole thing are the Colemans -- are the victims in this case -- and I don't know why that is," White said...." end quote


    Really do not like the tone of CNN's article as it looks like they (CNN) are siding with the perps instead of the victims.

    It's also confusing why LE in that town are saying the victims' family isn't cooperating ---when clearly they HAVE cooperated.
    Those poor girls did nothing wrong , they are truly victims in the truest sense of the word.

    Could this possibly end with a prosecution? Thoughts?

    Small towns seem to have problems with that. So parochial. It seems when people have few things to do, the center of life becomes like a "holy ground" whether sports team, organization, or religious institution. They think they cannot do wrong and are infallible.

    Shades of Steubenville and Penn State. :stormingmad:

    I don't do twitter, but read it.

    Indeed, shades of Steubenville... with the "my grandpa is a former congressman so I am immune to prosecution" twist... sigh.

    I saw this story on the morning news, tezi, and saw red! I've never gotten a T/O here and don't want one now or I would have plenty to say about this one!

    This is so, so wrong.

    That's a town where no one should want to relocate. The girls would have been safer with "ghetto" street boys.

    This is a travesty. They need the feds in there investigating. I hope Anonymous goes after the people involved with everything they have and I don't normally believe in vigilante justice
