Consider This My Olive Branch For The Sake Of Ayla Reynolds


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. 
Think what you want about Trista Reynolds, but the girl has more balls than the guy whose sack Ayla came from.

  1. You go, Boo! What's up with Shannie? I'd hate to see this blog crash, it's really good and heart felt.

  2. I agree with Luvs. Keep up the good work Boo and Shannie! You may want to go around and read up on some of the shit slinging that you have missed. And, in case you haven't seen it yet, Peters latest post at Statement Analysis is very promising!

  3. Amen amen and amen Boo! I am right there with you. My personal opinion is that a whole lot of people failed Ayla is some way or another. Should they hide in their shame or go out and do whatever it takes, go through whatever is dealt, to get their little baby girl back? I think they all should do exactly as Trista Reynolds has done. You haven't sat by and let this baby girl disappear. I haven't sat by and let her disappear. Why do the DiPietro's and supporters want her out of the limelight so badly? Is it because they think she is just fine where she is and, really, there is no need for LE at this point, just give the perps immunity and someday they will bring her home? HOW FUCKING LIKELY IS THAT?

    PS. I love your blog. I read it everyday. Even when you don't post anything new, I just sit and re-read the front page. After the craziness of the Ayla blogs, your "shit" is like a breath of fresh air!

    JUSTIN DIPIETRO YOU LYING SACK OF SHIT!!!! WHERE IS AYLA?

    Glad to see you back speaking up for Ayla, Bookat. We've missed you! I'm glad that you are able to get past people's over-reaction to your thoughts and honestly. They have been so used to seeing people come on J4A and bash Trista that they saw insult in your posts where there were none. I'm glad you understand why and have worked it out or are moving past it. Ayla needs you, and you're awesome!

    Grace, I agree! Justin, where is Ayla?!!!

    I am very happy to see you back helping Ayla, Bookat! I am a grammie of 5 and I am watching a girl that had very low self-esteem going thru the worst nightmare any mother could have. My heart aches for her. Her family was not there for her to help her with alot of decisions, rather it was them turning away or her. BUT now they are all reunited in their fight for Ayla. I pray everyday that they will continue to help her. She now shows a maturity that wasn't there before. Justin has a whole lot of evil within him. And Ray does too. Any man who would set a apt. building on fire with people inside, also has evil inside. It does not matter that he was a good dad to Ayla and Lil Ray- the evil still exists in him. Move on Trista-be more cautious- I truly pray that Trista can turn her life around and become the person who is self-sufficient, stable, proud of herself and her accomplishments. A person who has a strong loving family backing her all the way. I too pray for Ayla everyday. And Trista is in those prayers also. From the bottom of my heart I wish for Ayla to be found.

  6. I agree, Boo! Side note, though: Only one set of items found at the River were unrelated to the case; they have not discussed the other set of items, which has me hoping that they were related. I can't recall which items (the late April items or early May items) were not related and which set were the ones that received no comments on.

  7. Nice olive branch. Police are holding a news conference tomorrow @ 1:30 PM in Waterville, hopefully there will be a break in the case.

    1. I hope it's for something more than just talking about the same old, same old. Justice is dragging here and it's not fair to this little girl at all...
