The defenders of Alexandria Goddard and the horribly false Anonymous smear campaign repeat one lie, over and over and over…
If we weren’t involved nothing would have happened!
This is completely and demonstrably false.
They added NOTHING of value to the case or the story. They brought attention to a false story and ginned up an atmosphere that spun out of control. They threatened innocent people and caused people to not want to cooperate. They caused the victim’s name to be released.
If they had never gotten involved, there would have been exactly the same guilty verdict.
And everyone–especially the victim--would be a lot better off.
