Fight for Greg, Against Jana, and Kim, and Lindsay, and Charlie, and…

Standard

Sometimes standing up for what you believe in puts you in the line of the opposer’s fire, depending on how you go about taking your stance. If you are kind and quiet, people tend to disregard what you have to say. If you’re loud and in-your-face, you’ll most likely be labeled crazy, irrational. So we must find some place in the middle, to logically present our opinions in such a way that everyone will hear and respect our point of view. Am I right? Well, that would be awesome if it were possible. But the fact is, no matter what you believe in and how humorous your presentation, someone is going to believe the exact opposite and it’s completely out of your control how they react to you.

Yesterday, Jesse Mahan of Mahan Home and Commercial Services in Round Rock, Texas, along with Jake Brydon of Generations Church and Heritage Construction, posted the following, a complete falsehood regarding myself, my daughter, and my son-in-law, on a political Facebook page, all because I left Jana Duty a comment about her campaign signs being turned backwards in Cedar Park. I’m not sure why Jesse would take so personally the fact that I reported her signs being tampered with. No, really. I have no idea why. It’s not like he was the one who tampered with them.

Justice Served – Truth about the Greg Kelley Case Part 3

Standard

On September 15, 2014 Justice Served (JS) posted their first Facebook status. Who is Justice Served? It’s simply one person who was heavily involved in the #FightForGK movement, who watched it fail and thought he could do a better job at spinning the facts than Jake Brydon did. Justice Served is a man by the name of Doug Douglas.

While I have my own opinions of why Jake Brydon has decided to take on the leading role to free a child rapist, I’m quite unclear why Doug is doing this. Even he admits that he doesn’t know why he’s defending Kelley other than that he’s just acting on a gut impulse. I for one am thankful our legal system relies on facts.

JS was formed as a front for the GK Movement, passing itself off as a separate movement designed to ensure that justice prevails in Williamson County. Though Douglas repeatedly states that the page is not a Greg Kelley page, its clear intent is to give more legitimacy to the legal aspects of obtaining a new trial for Kelley. The few random posts regarding other cases on the JS page are merely tossed out there in an attempt to convince you that their focus is not solely on the Greg Kelley case.

#FightForGK Movement – Truth about the Greg Kelley Case Part 2

Standard

Greg Kelley was convicted on two counts of Super Aggravated Sexual Assault of a child on July 15, 2014. This conviction came after a jury of twelve members listened to the testimony presented by both sides. What the jurors used to base their decision on included the following key points:

  • A detailed, eyewitness account of the rapes by the child who identified Greg Kelley as the abuser, and also identified “Greg’s room” as the location of the attacks. The child also described the lotion Greg Kelley used during the abuse, pointing out that it wasn’t white like the lotions he’s seen before. The child said Greg’s lotion was yellow (a detail too small for a child to make up).
  • The daycare owner initially told Detective Dailey that Greg did not have access to the children because she said he was never there when the children were there, and she insisted that the boys were lying. She also said the children were not allowed to go upstairs where the bedrooms were.
  • The daycare owner changed her story to Detective Dailey several times, finally admitting that Greg Kelley actually was there at times when the children were there. She also admitted the children did have access to roam all over the house, including upstairs, and that it was possible that Greg Kelley could have been alone in his room with the children.
  • A witness testified that Greg Kelley had told him on several occasions that he was a Marine Sniper, and that he would be deployed to Afghanistan within the next few weeks.

The Truth about #FightForGK, GRKFoundation and #JusticeServed Part 1

Standard

Several months ago I did something I rarely do, I turned on the news. I prefer to live in my little bubble where the world is sunshine and roses, so typically when my husband turns it on I slip away to my room with a good book. But one particular night I stayed and watched, and learned of a local high school student who’d been charged with sexually assaulting two four year-old boys in my city. It’s heartbreaking, but its not unusual to hear of pedophiles being convicted…another reason I steer away from the news.

But there was something different about this particular story. A group of about 100 or so people, mostly high school students themselves, were gathering at the school of the accused, Greg Kelley. The anger and passion I saw in their faces and heard in their voices was something you’d naturally expect in a child molestation case, however, the anger wasn’t directed at Greg Kelley. The anger was directed at those who “unjustly accused him” — the children. I was shocked, and for a moment it was as if the television had sucked the breath from my lungs. How was it possible that so many could doubt these children, and how could they be so cruel to doubt them so publicly?
