  1. FREE BARRY BEACH. HOW WOULD THE JUDGES LIKE TO SET IN PRISON FOR OVER 30 YEARS FOR SOME THING THEY DIDNT DO…WHERE IS JUSTICE….

    • brutally honest

      Montana, Wolf Point and the Poplar area is a corrupt place. I have firsthand knowledge and have had to deal with the corruption. A single mom who raised two sons, not from who came to work in the oilfield. I was hit, thrown out of a vehicle, had over 15000 dollars worth of belongings taken from me and so much more. I now have health issues. I will never take another step into this dirty crooked town. I was a victim of a domestic violence and the Justice system. I will be writing my story blogging the whole thing. and I do believe 100% Barry Beach is innocent without a doubt in my mind after what I experienced.

        barry is where he needs to be! great job to all of the law info`rcement and prosecutors in this case! let him serve the sentence handed down

  2. Bob Thornton

    The “free Barry Beach” community seems to be nothing more than an echo chamber. Has anyone actually read the entire 93-page state Supreme Court ruling from May? Beach has provided nothing more than a theory, and a theory doesn’t get you a new trial. Imagine if we re-tried everyone in Deer Lodge who was able to cook up an interesting theory and whip up public support?

    Beach is in jail, and there he’ll stay unless Steve Bullock pardons him. What are the odds of that? Slim to none. Steve was attorney general, so he knows the truth. Beach knows his federal appeal options are limited and unlikely to produce results.

    Get a life, folks. Saying “Barry Beach is innocent” over and over doesn’t make it so.

    • Free Barry

      Well it must interest or worry you because your taking the time to come here and read this. Maybe you should get a life besides troll around a site that is exposing the corrupt so called justice system and politics. We are the people and community these snakes represent and we are tired of lies and corruption. While Barry was in the community he did a lot and gained the trust of many upstanding citizens of my community. I for one and I know thousands more will stand beside Mr. Beach until the truth comes out. Those involved on the so called justice side are just afraid they will have to admit to being wrong. Go get a life Bob!!

    • Dana

      We want to see the evidence and you people wont’t allow it! What are you afraid of? It was a cohersed confession and you know it!!

    • Marise Headdress

      Echo chamber my ass! prove BEYOND ANY SHADOWS..ANY DOUBTS THAT HE IS GUILTY & we are fighting for the life of an innocent man, wouldn’t you want someone to do the same for you?

    • Alan Foos

      You clearly haven’t studied the matter much yourself, nor do you know anyone involved. Barry Beach isn’t innocent because of a theory, he’s innocent because there’s no evidence that says otherwise, and plenty of good evidence that someone else did. Go away, Bob.

    • born and raised on ft peck and i can tell you that people in poplar know who did this and it was NOT barry beach. also, racicot is a completely corrupt political buttlick.

      • Shar

        I agree with you on that one for sure. He is a snake in the grass.

    • Maureen Irigoin

      Thornton! The “Barry Beach is a murderer” seems to nothing more than an echo chamber of the Montana Justice system. Saying he is a murderer over and over does not make it so!

    • Seeker after Wisdom

      Steve Bullock does not decide if Barry Beach will be pardoned or not. Almighty God decides that, and He will move in the time and in the way that will most bring glory to His name.

      • No Mark Racicot is the reason Barry Beach is not free. he and his corrupt cronies.

    • brutally honest

      You need to shut up. After what happened to me, they are dirty I don’t lie. I will now be an advocate. Thank you Montana

    • B woods

      Yes it does,did you read the case? The fact that you don’t give a damn has nothing to do with all that do care about innocence and injustice for any American and for the death of Kim Nees. Governor Bullock did write a wonderful letter to the stunted board to have Barry Beach released, there isn’t one intelligent person left that thinks he is guilty or deserves jail because of the prosecutors lies, false statements, lack of evidence and an ego the size of Montana,he actually writes about himself, he had a 95% conviction rate and only lost 2 cases in 12 years that’s all anyone would need to know to prove he is corrupt and more innocent people were sent to prison for Racicot’s bio. The only thing we all know for sure is he will meet the devil after he’s gone, you and he might not think Barry Beache’s life was important but God does.

  3. Deb Derks

    Mr. Thornton,

    I am a college graduate (4 year degree from a very reputable college), happily married, mother of 3 (yes, gainfully employed as well). When my teenage daughter and I watched the 1st Dateline on Barry Beach we were both very moved to help him, as we both truly felt he had been wrongly convicted. Our family has become firm believers in his innocence, and do what we can to help spread his story. His supporters are a group of great people with a common cause that they truly believe in.

    Get a life? that’s what we are trying to do for Barry Beach, as we all have lives and know he deserves one too.

    Maybe you should take your own advice, Mr. Thornton, using your time to talk about a man who means nothing to you, speaking to a group of people who don’t care what you have to say?

    Get a life, Bob.

  4. Dana

    Yea Bob, What are you afraid of? The truth? Grant the new trial and let’s actually see all the evidence other than the coerced confession of which two others where coerced to confess to also and they let them go. Let’s get the real killer or killers!

    • Actually there were 10 coerced confessions from this sheriff. All the others have been freed except Barry Beach.

  5. Donna

    Everyone in the AG’s office is afraid. They’re afraid of Marc Rosko p cole train! (Didn’t care for him so never cared to learn how to spell his name). Why are they afraid to admit they may have made a mistake? We all make mistakes but only the honest ones admit we did!!! I wish they would get over themselves!

  6. It never fails to amaze me how days and months after the fact the ONLY whispers around the school and town were girl names. NEVER once was the name Barry Beach mentioned…. Yet not ONE of those girls were ever convicted… {could it be that it was [who} they happened to be related to that had more than a little to do with it??} I saw how the cops handled the crime scene, most of the {fingerprints} belonged to cops themselves. No curtained off area ~~~It was a free-for-all and I made the statement at the time…. “Good Lord don’t the cops watch crime shows on tv, so they know how its done?” Granted, Barry was young and stupid enough to try and prove how tough he was while in a jail cell….and his comment ended up with him becoming their scape-goat, but all these years later they STILL don’t have the balls to admit they screwed up, and he should be freed.
    May God have mercy on your soul!

  7. Steve Bullock is a man that needs to stand up take responsibility for his state and do the honorable thing and pardon this man. You will meet your maker someday and its time to make it right now.

  8. Steve Bullock needs to stand up and take responsibility for his state and pardon this man! You are a family man and how do you look in the mirror each day knowing that he deserves a trail and you will in fact stand before the Good Lord and be judged one day and now it the time to get right with him!!

  9. Bob Thornton

    Like I said, an echo chamber. Nary a free thinker among you, it seems.

    A jury convicted Barry Beach of a murder to which he confessed. The Board of Pardons and Parole Unanimously rejected his shifting conspiracy theories and “evidence.” The State Supreme Court has twice said he hasn’t met the legal bar for getting a new trial.

    Unless the ranks of the brainwashed storm Deer Lodge and bust him out, Barry Beach is going to spend the rest of his life in prison.

    But everyone needs a cause to champion, I suppose.

    • Donna

      Bob T.,
      Did u watch any of the dateline special a couple years back? Do you even want to know the truth? Do you know what truth is? The only evidence presented in his case proved it was NOT his fingerprints, blood…absolutely no evidence proving him to be guilty, no evidence of him even being there. He was forced to say he did it. It wasn’t a confession, it was torture!

    • Too bad you weren’t doing his time. Then you would know how it feels to be imprisoned for something you didn’t do and see how that goes for you. Then, have people like you who don’t care. Maybe you are friends with the ones who actually did this crime?

  10. Diana

    Echo chamber? No, those of us that believe in Barry’s innocence have studied the case, FBI reports, crime scene reports, etc. and we know the facts. Bob, can you explain why a police officer (the father of one of the girls) broke into the judge’s chambers and tampered with evidence? Said he got lost looking for the bathroom? Come on! He never even had his hand slapped! Important evidence has been destroyed, palm print not followed up on, witnesses called not credible because they were Native Americans, four of the girls admitted in an affidavit that they had at one time had Kim’s necklace in their possession, etc. How much do you need to see? Those of us that support Barry will continue to do so, in spite of naysayers like yourself. Just pray that if you are ever accused of a crime that you did not commit you will have backers that would fight for you. And as for that coerced false confession, don’t you ever read how many false confessions are obtained every year? If you don’t believe in Barry no one is forcing you to be on this page!!!!

    • Not only did Maude Grayhawks dad steal evidence, sissy atkinson’s brother was in on clean up of crime scene. really people. the atkinson’s are some of the dishonest people i know.

  11. Hey thanks for using my photo of Barry. I was the main person at the Helena event that took the photos and also the video that you can all find on youtube of the very same Helena speech. Now this guy Mr. Thornton on here ranting and raving claims that he read the 93 page Supreme Court decision. If he did in fact read it and claims to be so intelligent and all as he assumes, let us all see him provide an analysis of the decision instead of a few sentences. He cannot because he lives in a glass house and throws rocks at the pubic and at Barry.

    Truth be told, if the opposition to Barry was their relative, they would be doing the same thing over and over again trying to get him freed upon his innocence. Point blank; So there is no need to sit on here and argue with the ignorant blind sheep. Think about it, the majority of people in Montana are close-minded and lack the mental capacities to comprehend I-N-N-O-C-E-N-C-E.

    The show is re-airing on Tuesday, September 23, at 2:03 AM E.T., or very late Monday night, depending on your perspective!

  13. As a retired cop of 32 years this is amazing. I have seen arrogance, power trips, but never in my life would I imagine this goes on in America. Not the injustice. But the stance of the Montana attorney general. And as a black man this compares to the racism, and hate people of color experienced in the south. That shows that mean hateful self righteous A Holes have no since of what’s right or wrong. The A.G. Should be immediately removed and evaluated for competence. But that will never happen because we give these idiots too much power. In this case to decide life or death, regardless to a JUDGE rendering a fair and impartial decision. I am embarrassed for once being a part of executive government. Sad day very sad.

    Thank God for Centuion Ministries, and other groups that reach out to make our wrongs as a society, right. keep hope alive, and Barry in our prayers. God bless us and keep us all. Barry could be one of us.

    • Ealine

      I feel so bad about what has happened to Barry. He seems like such a good man and he did well while he was free.

      He is also a very strong man to deal with all the injustices done to him over the years and still being able to smile.

      It says a lot about his upbringing and him as a person.

  14. Jessielynn

    Facts you mean no DNA evidence? Or fact like someone else confessed to multiple people? Or fact like none of Kim’s family believe he did it and are on his side?

  15. Jessielynn

    Corrupt people always defend one another. One of the girls uncles was an officer at the time. They covered it up the very second they knew it was their own families doings

  16. Jessielynn

    Many of Barry’s supporters like myself are from montana. But thank you for calling me close minded and pointing out my lack of mental capacity,. Your complete judgement on an entire state of people (a state in which more than not support Barry) reflects your “lack of mental capacity” in which you would reply to a rude judgemental person by making yourself just that. On a side note I am curious to know where you are from bob? I have not met one person in Montana that does not believe Barry is innocent, except of course government officials and at that, not all.

  17. Corina

    I do not live in Montana I live in Canada ,Nova Scotia ,But from what I’ve seen and heard about this case I’m so glad I do-not live in such a corrupt city as Montana where the evidence shows clearly that this man is innocent,and yet because of the pride of these official’s and their racism that this man Berry is to be locked up for life over a murder he did not commit .I’m so sorry to his family and what they are living with each day. I must say also that my heart goes out to this young girl and her family ,they too have lost so much. I feel the authorities should get their act together, forget about themselfs and solve this case.

  18. jennifermm

    This is sad and hurts my heart to see a man be in prison for 30 years, then claim his innocence, finally got to smell the fresh air, eat real food, feel real happiness and peace then have someone just say “oh just kidding Berry and lock him in a cell once again. He got the feeling of having a real job, and a paycheck in his name to spend on what he wants, gets to decide what HE wants for the first time. He deserves to know what LIFE really is. I’m sorry Berry, if I was in your position I don’t know what I would do. I’m free in this world, and I will fight for you to be free. We support you!
    FREE BERRY BEACH NOW!

  19. jennifermm

    And to those who decided Berry’s life, wouldn’t it be more of a “win” to find the real murderer? Or is it enough for you to say that Berry did it? My uncle was murdered 15 years ago, they know who did it but won’t lock him up because the can’t find my uncles body to match his DNA. The man that murdered my uncle and took him away from his 2 year old daughter is a MONSTER but that’s not what were worried about anymore the murderer will get what he deserves in his next life. We’re worried about my uncles body so we can lay him to rest, put his soulife at peace. This story touches my heart. Let’s find the real killer and let Berry go. Cause from the sounds of it. They haven’t even looked more into the murder they matched Berry to it and they thought their job was done. WRONG! I support our system but not anymore it’s like they don’t give a crap about us anymore.

  20. Lana

    This is one of the most heart wrenching stories I’ve ever heard. I watched the story on Dateline. This man is clearly an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted. With so many supporters that believe in his innocence and the fact that he turned himself back in I believe says volumes of his Word and Character. The authorities that put him back in prison after the judge had set him free clearly don’t have a conscience.
    Please Free Barry Beach!!!!

    • Elaine Brutosky

      I feel the same way. I would not have second thoughts about having Barry live or work with or near me. I don’t know how the poor man keeps his sanity!

  21. i watched the dateline program and was riveted – its obviously small town politics – because people are accused of murder and they don’t ever serve a full 30 years – so its obvious theres some example or some reason – for the “no parole..” it begs the question why no parole ?? and the second thing is which i can not find anywhere – no motive for the supposed murder – from barrys side – there was never a motive established – why ?? if he did it then why did he do it ?? why would he do it ?? there is no motive from barrys stand point – however I totally believe that the towns “Mean girls” did have motive as the dateline program said….Id follow the absence of motive -

    This could happen to you or me. Shame on those responsible people. They may be able to lock up his body but not his soul! Let’s pray for Barry Beach.
