|Keep Ayla Reynolds' Name Out There|
I know I said that I would no longer cover anything on the case of Ayla Reynolds, but Shannie is slacking and it just so happens I came across an article last night that had some rather shitty comments from peanut gallery. I stepped away from this case when my opinion created a shitstorm on Justice for Ayla, but that doesn’t mean I ever stopped caring about Ayla or wanting her to come back home. I’m still not apologizing for my comments because they are my honest opinion, but I should explain them. Or explain at least why I made them. I didn’t bring up Trista Reynolds’ past mess-ups to “drag her through the mud” or make her feel like shit. More than anything, it was me thinking “out loud” and wishing things had not happened the way that they did. When something so spectacularly tragic like the disappearance of Ayla Reynolds happens, it’s natural to question things or wonder why things worked out the way they did or wish someone had slapped some sense into everyone involved. I didn’t toss out insults about Trista or say she kidnapped Ayla or make up a bunch of bullshit. I said it how I see it from an outsider’s perspective and if a couple zealots can’t handle that, tough shit. It was the blunt truth.
Every so often, I do a lookup of missing kids to see if there are any updates, if anything is happening, if investigations are getting anywhere. So I did one on Ayla because she’s part of a group of missing chrildren’s cases that I follow and I hadn’t done one recently, and what came up was an article from the Kennebec Journal from three days ago. If you follow the case of Ayla Reynolds, you know not a whole lot of anything significant is happening. There is a lot of drama, a lot of bullshit and way too much covering ass. In this article though, Trista Reynold’s was interviewed and said some items found down in the Kennebec River that were thought to be connected to Ayla actually weren’t. That’s disappointing because even though something being found in the river leads to a sad conclusion no one wants to entertain, it also may have meant this case was leading in the direction of some closure and some answers. It wasn’t the article itself that got to me, though I was disappointed that the discovered items weren’t relevant to the case. It was the comments below the article that bothered me.
Below this article, where the mother of a missing child is giving out information and keeping her daughter’s name in the media, anonymous douchebags had the shitty callousness to bitch that Trista Reynolds is doing interviews at all. They complain that she needs to get the fuck off welfare and become “self-sufficient”. They give her shit for saying she thinks investigators could be doing a lot more than they are. Even the Department of Public Safety Spokesman, Steve McCausland, understands that this comes from frustration, but a toilet full of assholes don’t get that? It’s unfortunate that Ayla Reynolds case, the case of a missing girl that has touched so many from all over the world, has spiraled into nitpicking and busting on people who weren’t born into better circumstances or didn’t have the drive to become a successful dickstain that gets to look down at those less fortunate. I may have an opinion of Trista and her family that they don’t agree with, but I have never thought they weren’t trying as best they can to bring Ayla home now and get her justice. Trista, her family, her friends, strangers on the internet, assholes from Texas that slather the obvious in bullshit, a lone blogger that never knew Ayla….All these people need to talk. The more they talk, the more they keep Ayla’s name out there, the more people learn about this little girl that needs to be found.
Saying that Trista Reynolds should stop releasing information, that she should stop talking, is one of the most counterproductive loads of crap I have seen vomited in keystrokes. As long as Ayla Reynolds’ name is out there, still being searched, still being brought up, not being forgotten, who cares if it came from her mother, her grandmother or someone you will never meet? As long as it’s out there, as long as Ayla is still being talked about and remembered, that’s all that should matter if you give a shit about this child being found. The drama that surrounds this case should be the least of anyone’s worries, but I would think that those who care about Ayla Reynolds getting justice would be more inclined to wonder why the whole other side of her family, the paternal side and all their friends and fans, aren’t speaking out as eagerly. At least not about what matters most, Ayla Reynolds. Just something to think about.
