Desiree Young Organizes Public Demonstration in Front of Terri Horman's Current Residence / Re: Kyron Horman
Last weekend, Desiree Young and some friends or associates staged a demonstration in front of the Moulton residence in Roseburg. This is, as we all know, the current residence of Terri Horman. Carol Moulton, mother of Terri, called the police and reported acts of vandalism and trespass. The police responded, but no arrests were made.
The apparent vandalism consisted of writing with chalk on the sidewalk in front of the Moulton house. No significant trespass was noted. Generally speaking, the demonstration was peaceful, but troubling.
I’ve been thinking about this. It’s hard to generate sympathy for Terri – all things considered. Kyron is gone. I, personally, think she knows where he is. Say what you may, but Terri Horman has not conducted herself as an innocent person might.
On the other hand, I feel Desiree Young’s behavior is inexplicable and inappropriate. I think law enforcement should talk to her about her conduct, and make it very clear that her conduct could lead to repercussions, even violence. This latest action is in my opinion kind of silly, even childish. If she wants to demonstrate, perhaps she should do it in front of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. After all, were they not the ones who dropped the ball?
Desiree can’t actually believe or expect that her actions will cause Terri to confess. If anything it will harden Terri’s position. It appears that Desiree has decided that it is her duty and responsibility to punish Terri. I really think Roseburg PD should tell Desiree to back-off.
Furthermore, Desiree Young had an opportunity to gain a lot of information on this case by pursuing her civil suit. As I’ve said before, she should have named the Portland School District as a co-defendant in the civil suit. It would have been her opportunity to investigate the entire disappearance – publish her findings, and keep the matter in front of the public on a continuing basis. But, she and her attorney decided to discontinue the suit – with no good explanation offered. I think that Desiree was not prepared to face the counter-scrutiny of Steve Houze et al.
Herein lies the predicament. How do you expose all the facts, without exposing the facts you don’t want exposed?
