Has anyone watched the documentary Audrie & Daisy about the Maryville rape case?
What were your thoughts?
I am ENRAGED at this Sherriff he deserves to be fired and charged with some kind of crime.
And the video of the interrogation when the detective HANDS THE PHONE WITH EVIDENCE ON IT back to the kid to have him turn it off?!??! WHAT? Then you clearly see him going through the phone probably deleting evidence or doing a reset. I was furious. Everyone knows you just hold down the power button to turn off a phone. Plus there really is no reason to turn it off or let someone who knows how do it not the person you are interrogating!!!!
there* was enough evidence sorry just so angry right now

overall I think they did not handle the case well. Like you said, the chain of evidence. Also, I find it hard to believe they couldnt retrieve the video. They caught them so soon after the crime. There has to be a backup somewhere or a record where it was online.
Its so hard without the video, DNA evidence, etc (which did they ever say if there was a rape kit done on Daisy??) to convict someone. At that point its just he said she said. I also hate how the community treated her. Like she asked to be raped. Why did they side with those scumbags?!

I watched this a couple months back & I still can’t believe my eyes and ears. My husband watched it with me and was furious. The fact that they did nothing about it was probably the worst part of the whole documentary. I do believe that they couldn’t find the video, however you don’t have to find it when you have thousands, upon thousands of students telling you they had SEEN the video and what happened. What are the chances that everyone was at that party and saw what she was wearing/ what she looked like? Bullshit.
This is a very typical thing to happen tho. The victims are often blamed for the actions that were taken against them. The worst part is that these boys found nothing wrong with their behaviour because nobody shamed them for doing what they did. They shamed the GIRLS for being at the wrong place at the wrong time and being taken advantage of by peers they trusted.
This isn’t shocking to me though. Apparently not saying “No” is enough grounds for them to do whatever they’d like. I guess not being able to say you’re own name means it’s ok too?

I just can no get over that smug piece of shit Sherriff… Absolutely disgusting.
Going on about how the boys have moved on and the girls are living in the past. Well yeah, I imagine someone who got away with rape while everyone shames your victims is probably pretty easy to do vs being the victim of a sexual assault and trying to move on while everyone is calling you a lying whore and making death threats against you.

I believe they maybe couldn’t get their hands on the ORIGINAL but like PP said many other students saw it. I don’t for a moment believe that there was no way that NO ONE had it after it had been passed around.
And the sentencing for Audrey Pott’s case was a slap in the face to her and her family.
