According to multiple news sources, Matthew Barnett, a football player from a politically connected family had intercourse with a drunk and incoherent 13 year old girl. And of course it was consensual. Barnett then dumped his date's limp body onto her parents' front lawn in 22 degree weather with nothing but sweatpants and a t-shirt to protect her from the cold.
Uuuuuh...here...I'm done with this...heh...heh...
What a man.
The victim's mother found her three hours later. In my book that's attempted murder, but I've found nothing in the news that suggests anyone else feels the same way. After filing charges with the police, the small town rapist fan club harassed her family so badly they had to move to another community...then the good Christians of Maryville, Missouri burned the victim's house down. Wonderful people those Christians are.
Did I mention that the prosecutor mysteriously dropped the charges? It sure must be nice to be politically connected.
Matthew Barnett is currently a student at the University of Central Missouri.
They like mail. Send them some. A copy of this post would make a fine addition to the student newspaper...or possibly any on-campus rape crisis types would appreciate a copy. Do your best. The bought and paid for prosecutor certainly did.

and here too... Goodness he's very popular with the media.
Matthew Barnett's family claims that he is the real victim in all this...Please stop...I'm peeing my pants.
Imagine being someone like Timothy McVeigh. You want to do something "big" but you're not sure...
And then the good citizens of Maryville come along and help you make up your mind. I can't say it often enough. Every time an American community displays the customary depraved indifference toward victims of violent crime...every time they put a rapist or some other violent animal on a pedestal, they make it very easy for criminals to rationalize that demolishing a building full of people, or spraying bullets into a crowded theatre or school, or committing some similar act of mass murder is no worse than what good American Christians do every day.
Enjoy the game...and don't forget to buy a $60 t-shirt on your way out.
