I recently watched a documentary on netflix called "Monnique, Behind Bars." In this documentary the host, who is a comedienne, goes to a women's prion in Ohio to understand why women are the fastest growing prison population. I thought the show was going to be a comedy routine when I decided to watch it. It turned out to be serious study of abuse and neglect survivors, a lot of whom were sexually abused, and end up in prison in OHIO! The first interview was even an inmate who was incarcerated because she didn't go to the authorities when her ex-husband was sexual molesting a child in their home! I am very close to the survivors in this case and I truly think that stumbling upon this program was too much of a coincidence to be random. It really made me think and I feel compelled to say a few things about Bev Copley's situation.
Like I stated, the first inmate interviewed was an older woman who was serving time because she had ignored the fact that her now ex-husband was molesting a child in their home. She explained that she was abused by this person, was scared, and had been basically brainwashed by this man. She also admitted that she knew keeping quiet was wrong, even back then, but she did it anyway and knew that her prison sentence was just.
I think Bev Copley was and is probably in this same situation. Don has probably manipulated, if not abused, her their entire lives together. To Bev: This does not make your inaction, and the laws you broke by keeping quiet excusable, but it does give the outside a better understanding. I say to you that it is still not to late to do the right thing. You still have a chance to stand up for these victims and speak the truth of what has been going on in your life for all these years. And by right thing I don't just mean legally, but morally and spiritually, as well. You claim to be a christian woman, and maybe you are and just in deep denial about what is right in this instance, but lying and defending molestation cannot sit right deep within your heart if it is truly in tune with the spirit of God. I plead with you to separate yourself from Don for a few days and spend some quiet time really praying and meditating with God about the right thing to do. Perhaps also spend some time with a close girlfriend, someone you feel safe with, and lean on them for support. And finally, see your lawyer, any lawyer, by yourself, and tell them the truth and go from there about what would be the best move for you legally. They are bound by law to keep it a secret. Don has manipulated you for a longtime and having a lawyer who is working for him doesn't represent your best interest. His crimes are not the same as your crimes. But again, most importantly, remove yourself from the situation, get some help from some friends, or perhaps a therapist, and spend some alone seeking answers from God, "seek and ye shall find."
And to Bev's friends who may be reading this: I know that some of you absolutely don't believe these allegation, regardless, if you are truly someone who cares about her, I implore you to reach out to her. Things are not always as they seem, and I guarantee that she is internally struggling with things that you do not know about. She needs your help to be free of this and to make things right in her life. Reach out to her with and open mind, compassion, and a gentle spirit.
That being said, I do feel the need to state that I still hope and strongly believe Bev deserves to spend time in prison for allowing children to be sexually abused. I just think she deserves a chance for her heart to be opened to do the right thing, legally, morally, and most importantly, spiritually.
Very well put!

So here we have our answer about "Vanessa" whoever it really is. The below is a previous post challenging her to reply directly to it, and the above quote is the is the next thing she has had to say.

To vanessa/don and bev/ family or friend who is covering for them or maybe just now found out how sick they are when the news broke and can't believe it, whomever you are:

Stop ranting about nonsense to take the focus off don and bev. You only respond to posts that have nothing to so with the facts of the case, you just pick fights over bad language or grammar or shelia or something else stupid. I think you are doing this on purpose. Let me put things back on course. I challenge you to directly respond to the following

Some of us on here either

A.) were molested/raped/beaten by Don while bev did nothing. For example, the brave person who posted under "another copley victim"
OR
B.)Have first hand knowledge of the case and have for years because we have had a loved family member or friend who was a victim of these monsters. We don't need to "wait and hear the evidence in court" because we already know what will be presented! We have known and witnessed this for, again, YEARS. I know some people on here are bound by the case to not say certain things, and others have had a child that was hurt by don (and it isn't just family members my dear), so they want to protect their children's identity, but neither of these situations applies to me, so bring it on. Would you like to hear about a time when Don molested a child and bev saw and did nothing. Or perhaps a conversation I heard where guilt was admitted. And redneck is right, how about when don first heard that the police had been alerted he said he was going to a mental institution to get help, on the advice of his lawyer, I heard, to aid in a defense. A guilty defense by reason of mental defect. These are some of the FACTS, but I have more and can go into some details if you like, they would give you real sweet dreams tonight.

So I challenge you, make your next post a direct comment on these facts, not some stupid fight picked about grammar or shelia, or a potty mouth. And we want facts, not "you're stupid, or a liar, or they helped build a church." That is irrelevant. FACTS,FACTS,FACTS. If you don't post or you comeback with some irrational argument or skip over this post to reply to one of your many haters, then...case closed. We will all know that you are either one of THEM or you know nothing, just like to stir up trouble, perhaps are mentally unable to be logical, and want to redirect the attention off the monsters that ARE don and bev. We all look forward to hearing from you soon with some facts about the case! This goes for all the other sh*t talkers as well.

Guess we know what you are now. Proceed with your stupidity we will all just dismiss it.
