Danyelle Dyer of Oklahoma is joining the harassment sign train (exposing her hypocrisy)

What a difference a day makes. When this first popped into my newsfeed, I ignored it as news of nominal value. That is, until I was invited to discuss this case on TV. Now I see there's a real serious problem with this person, Danyelle Dyer [FACEBOOK]. I've even made a new category this year, Dumbest Signposter, because of her.

So here's the list of facts based on a couple of reports:

  1. Why make a fuss if the arrangement is only temporary?
  2. A hundred yards is farther than 100 feet, which is Alabama's law. Just saying...
  3. Posting her grandmother's name and address is putting her grandmother in danger. So if granny gets murdered, guess who is culpable, Danyelle?
  4. Guess what? Danyelle wants to name a law after her. 
  5. How can Danyelle discuss working with vets/ amputees? What if her patient is a registrant?
  6. Girl, you're 21. Grow up! Posting threatening statements and passing the pitchforks on social media just makes you look like a fool. 
Danyelle, you and your supporters are all idiots. 

Convicted sex offender moves next door to his victim. And it's perfectly legal

(CNN)Fourteen years ago, Danyelle Dyer was molested by her step-uncle.

Now, the man has moved next door to Dyer's parent's house in Oklahoma -- and legally, there's nothing they can do about it.
Sexual offenders laws are in place to keep predators away from children. Like many other states, Oklahoma law bars sex offenders from living near schools and churches.
But what Dyer and her family discovered is the state doesn't have a statute that prevents a sexual predator from moving next door to his victim.
Dyer, who's now 21, is fighting to change that....

Dyer is now studying for a degree in kinesiology and wants to eventually work with amputees and veterans. She comes back to her parents home every weekend and spends most of her summer there.
Two weeks ago, English was released from prison and he moved in with his mother -- Dyer's grandmother -- who lives right next door.
"If I look outside, I can see my grandmother's entire house. We are maybe 100 yards from her house," Dyer said.

The action
At first, her parents told Dyer not to worry.
"Legally, we didn't think he could," she said.
Her parents called lawmakers, the police, the prison system. Each assured them the law barred English from living so close to his victim.
But then, each called back to say they were wrong. There was nothing that legally prevented English from doing so.
"My mom called and told me that we can't stop this from happening," Dyer said.
At first, Dyer said she felt let down by the state. Then she decided to do something about it.
"I don't want anyone else to ever have to go through the feelings of reliving the trauma from something like this," she said.
Her first step: Post a picture of her abuser on Facebook.
"Meet my abuser and my new neighbor," it said.

Her dad put up signs in their front yard alerting people that a sex offender lived nearby. First, he went to the neighbors to make sure no one would object.
"They were very supportive and most of them have children and they don't want him around," Dyer said.

The other side
Dyer says she has a strained relationship with her grandmother because she continued to support English even after the abuse.
Right before English was released from prison, Dyer wrote her grandmother a letter.
"I felt like it was a very heartfelt letter explaining my feelings," she said. "I don't think it affected her at all."
CNN called the grandmother, Betty Dyer, and she defended her decision.
"The only thing I have to say about this, I don't agree with what my son did. But I gave him a place to stay temporary until he could find a place," she said.
"I think Danyelle is okay for trying to get a law passed. But she shouldn't blame me for what happened because this is my son and I just give him a place to stay until he can find a place on his own."
The grandmother said English was sitting next to her as she talked to CNN on the phone. But he declined to speak himself.
The fight
Now, the Dyer family is working with Oklahoma State Rep. Kyle Hilbert to introduce a new bill protecting victims.
The legislative season begins again in February. So they have roughly six months to write the bill.
"I'm doing everything I can to try and help and do something statutorily to prevent this from happening to anyone else in Oklahoma," Hilbert said.
Will the bill be named after Dyer? Hilbert said that's completely up to her.
"It would be an honor for the bill to be named after me," Dyer said. "It's because of my father that I am strong enough to fight this battle. He has always taught me to take a negative situation and turn it into a positive one to help others."

Aren't the worst folks always claiming Christianity?
ADDENDUM: I was informed that this wacko sent me a message via Facebook. If I actually used FB I suppose I would have seen it sooner. Since she's addressing me directly, I'll share her stupid remarks first:

In response, I first have to laugh. You calling me crazy is the classic case of Pot v. Kettle, you whack job.

Second, it doesn't matter where his hometown is, he is staying with a family member, and it is none of your business. You have no right to dictate ANYONE'S legal rights. Your rights end where others begin.  

Third, you're just as stupid as Assleigh Banfield (she'll be joining you on the Shiitake blog) because dozens of studies have proven recidivism rates are low. Again, you've proven your bias clods your personal judgment. 

Lets get real, your actions betray your words. Vengeance is placing a big sign pointing to grandmother's house. If you are willing to risk having someone MURDERED [like THIS PASTOR not far from you] then you better accept responsibility for your actions. Your own words as evidence: “If I can’t make him move, I want to make him as uncomfortable as possible.”

No, I DO NOT trust you to uphold your Hippocratic oath. You have proven to be someone willing to place human lives in danger. Since you think my past is fair game, then your future is fair game. I'm enjoying something you don't believe I should not have, meaning equal rights. 

Bottom line: Danyelle Dyer is just another Shiitake-worthy idiot.

I agree. Residency restriction repeals would be a good place to fix the flaws in the law.


  1. Here we go again

    1. I do like the responses, though. It seems Quora doesn't attract as many dumb fucks as Facebook does.
