sorry that is where u are completely wrong right here because GOD does not hate anyone and he doesn't want any of his children too go through anything tragic like this ! so i believe you should just rethink about what you just said..
It's was called sarcasm. You do agree tho, she/he is becoming a lifetime victim? I have never or know of anyone with such bad luck, unless of course they brought it onto themselves. If the area is so bad to and for she/he then the logical to leave right? Then she/he is someone else's problem.

You are right on this part God doesnt hate anyone. So really this is just karma biting her in the butt for all those years of being a crooked cop and for all the bad things she has done to people.
I still think it was staged, I guess we will find out if charges are ever filed and a trial held, or she/he settles out of court. Then has the same thing happen again, after the settlement runs out.

I think the crazy bitch just walks around all day just looking for a lawsuit. To be the man she thinks she is her female side sure shows alot because she sure likes to be surrounded by drama.

Wow, what a wonderful way of putting it. So she supposedly lied about some tickets and she deserved to be raped? That's pretty harsh karma, don't you think? I could see if she went out and molested little kids or raped someone herself, but she DESERVES to be raped? Whether this rape is real or not, a woman does not deserve to be raped! It's a horrible and violent crime. I believe in eye for an eye, but that is going overboard by saying bad things as a crooked cop and deserves to be raped. Jerry Sandusky deserves to be raped. If Beth did some things as a crooked cop, that does not justify someone raping her. Our society is completely screwed up when someone says it's karma for being a crooked cop and turns their head! Rape is rape! Totally sickens me that someone would take so light of it! Have you ever been raped? I have and I didn't deserve it and I am sure millions of others didn't either. So think before you speak and think about all the women you are downgrading by saying it's karma! I don't agree with lying and covering things up, but that punishment certainly doesn't fit that crime and I can tell you firsthand how awful it is and how degrading it is and how no one should have to go through that.

This whole thread reminds me of the Jody Foster movie where she was raped and she was put down because she was loose or she hunt out in a bar and there were a million excuses trying to make it okay for her to be raped. The downplaying of rape sickens me! I know there are false accusations and they sicken me as well, but rape is rape. No one should have to be humiliated or questioned if they are a true victim. I've been there and it was nothing I asked for or ever would have wanted and I think it is horrible for anyone to throw up things a person has done and say they deserve it and make light of it. Again, anyone who makes a false statement of rape to gain anything sickens me completely, but I've been a victim and it's nothing I asked for or ever would have wanted and to act like it's nothing or that it should be okay for someone to be raped is just plain horrible.

ATTEMPTED IS NOT RAPE!!! You stupid people!! She is looking for another pay out!! Thats all she does looks for the next victim!! Mike should have beat the hell out of her, I wish someone would!! And not by falling drunk in her bathtub and blameing someone, because she could'nt go to the next counsil meeting! So many many lies!! People wake up to the bullshit!! Really!!

Well said, I agree if they are a true victim. Not faking it to get their next settlement.

I think Socrates, meant if she/he commented a corrupt act before, how many other had she/he gotten away with? Also you do know she settled out of court with the city, because she/he filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her/his fellow cops, I think she/he has no morals, also is gender confused and very very greedy, which is all ok, unless you do corrupt stuff like staging a crime for profit.

In this case karma has nothing to do with this, she brings this on herself. Karma hasn't acked her in the face yet. But it's coming count on it!!

Why should anyone care what happened. We are talking about the lowest forms of life when talking about Beth Rist or an Ironton City council member. Just take a look at the current adminastration and this joker that we elected as president and then look at our own local goverment and city council. Can you see much diffrence?????? Is there such thing as a good honest person with any kind of morals out there any more??? Its very sad and just makes me want to go live on the moon or something.
So Much Hate

I can't believe how much hate that is directed at one person. I have never met the lady in question, but I am praying for her. It seems like the bullies come out real fast to post the most ugly remarks. How many of their are you who are Christians, or at least claim too be? Is your judgement biblical based? If so, you really should brush up on reading the Bible. Yes, it can be dusted off and read, I too, have been guilty of that myself before. From what I have read on here, she never murdered anyone, molested a child, abused the elderly or anything like that. Is all this hate really from a traffic ticket that I am guessing she was wrong on? Was it that lawsuit? People have talked about her drinking as if she committed vehicular manslaughter too. I think if I had people saying so many hateful things about me I would want to drink some of the pain away myself, if the drinking is true. I know drinking solves nothing, but I think I would try it. How many more painful things have to be posted to make so many feel better about themselves? Like I said, I have never met her and I don't know her personally, but I do have compassion for anyone that is going through what she obviously is. People, not one of us are saints without sin in our lives. To her, I hope that you have strong support from your family and friends. People as you know full well by now love to hate, but they will have to answer to God some day too. It just never ceases to amaze me how they think that they get a free pass, especially the ones who are front and center in their church pews every Sunday. I hope that you realize not everyone is fooled by the real reason behind the hatred. Hey, maybe (likely) they will trash talk me for a while and give you a break. Lol, what a crazy world we live in!

Except for a couple posters theres not a lot of hate going on just a lot of questioning whether or not you can trust a crooked cop. She has proven to be a liar and money hungry in the past so this time may or may not be different. Someone mentions her past and how that shouldnt be held against her, but lets face it her credibility will be the first things a lawyer goes after. We all know she isnt very credible and her lifestyle will be judged also. Remember these are only allegations so far nothing concrete has been or not been proven. No charges filed against the supposed attacker.

I agree, I don't feel hate or anything for her/him. I know I wouldn't trust anyone who has repeated over and over again, they can't be trusted. I could care less about her/his lifestyle, or her/his fans. It just seems like every time she/he is involved in any altercation, the city of Ironton's water bill goes up. Who is paying for it? I wouldn't want her/him living within a 10 mile radius of me, not because of her/his lifestyle, because I don't want to pay for her/his free ride. As Socrates has pointed out, charges have yet to be filed against anyone. I guess each town has a few, financial vampires. I'm cool, with you burying your head in the sand as someone stages a crime and gets paid for it, with the money out of your pocket. Socrates, I, and a few others have our eyes open and doubts about this new allegation. I don't live in Ironton or pay it's high water bill, when this corrupt police person's piggy bank runs empty. I feel sorry for those paying for others free ride. If you folks in Ironton like paying for it, more power to you. If this person gets away with it, there will copycats wanting a free ride also. I will sit back and watch and see how much of a load Ironton can really carry. God might not give you more then you can carry, but funding the rides of financial vampires, just might be the straw that breaks Ironton's back. So enjoy, bury your head in the sand, and defend in the name of compassion all you want. A few of us will be watching and see the real truth, we shall call ourselves The Talamasca, the name has a certain irony.

I'm sure our outstanding prosecuting attorney and the great assembly of detectives and honorable servants of the public will not rest until the truth is discovered and justice is served like the many crimes they haves solved. No stone will be unturned. We have complete faith. Oh yell by the way REWARD: Bag of coke gettem BJ

If coworkers had not harrassed Beth or if her complaints about the harrassment would have been properly handeled there would not have been a lawsuit or judgement in her favor. If her firing was justified there would not have been a descision in her favor or another settled lawsuit. Beth keeps being blamed, but the ones that harrassed her and the ones that discriminated against her are the ones to blame. She didn't cause all the fees on the water bill. That is just stupid! As for the alledged attempted rape you people that have said such terrible things will feel like real jackasses if it is also proven to be true. If the injuries are as they are saying then something happened only as to what that is only Beth and the man know the truth and hopefully the BCI will get the evidence to prove one way or the other beyond a doubt. Prayers go out to Beth for healing and peace in her life and for all involved guilty or not.
