Anonymous Seeking Justice After Charges Dropped in Brutal Killing of 2-Year-Old

People associated with Anonymous, the collective of Internet activists, have their eyes on Phoenix.

A press release from Anonymous introduces "Operation Justice4Savannah," which points out that murder and child-abuse charges were dropped against the two people accused of being responsible for the brutal death of 2-year-old Savannah Cross.

Police said a couple that run something of an unlicensed babysitting service was responsible for Savannah's death, in December. Ryan Reed, then 27, admitted to abusing the girl, and his wife, then-28-year-old Allison Clement, knew that the abuse was happening, yet didn't do anything about it.

Yet, just a matter of weeks ago, the charges against Reed and Clement were dropped.

Court filings indicate that the medical examiner's office was very slow to get some tests done, and a deputy Maricopa County attorney assigned to the case repeatedly told the judge that these tests would be in any day -- which turned out to not be true. The Maricopa County Attorney's Office, in subsequent court filings, referred to this as some grave miscommunication.

Either way, the charges were dismissed -- for now, at least.

This obviously doesn't sit well with anyone who's heard about the case.

Court documents indicate Savannah sustained "extensive trauma to include deep tissue bruising, pattern bruising, swelling and abrasions from head to toe, front to back."

"The medical staff described the bruises as 'too many to count,'" a probable-cause statement said. "These bruises appeared to be in different stages of healing, and could not have been caused by a single traumatic event."

Reed and Clement had been watching Savannah full-time for several weeks leading up to her death. A Phoenix police spokesman told us last year that Savannah's mother simply "needed the help." The mother would show up at the house occassionally to pay Clement and Reed, police said.

Meanwhile, Reed took to what he called "discipline" of Savannah, by smacking her and flicking her. According to court documents, Reed said he tripped and "stomped" the girl right in the abdomen on one occasion, which apparently turned out to be the fatal blow.

"The victim immediately curled up with her arms around her abdomen and spent the rest of the evening in this posture," according to the probable-cause statement. "Reed said that he ultimately picked her up and placed her in her playpen that evening and heard her making groaning sounds throughout the night."

Reed and Clement sought medical attention, but not until the next morning, when they found Savannah unresponsive.

Investigators eventually discovered that Savannah was sexually abused too, according to court documents.

I love Anonymous and all that they do. I only wish they had more of a militant wing. So many issues would be permanently solved with an 'anonymous' bullet to the back of some peoples heads. I know there is a huge debate about dispensing justice. But in some fashions, thats what they are doing. How many other problems could have been solved if they would have taken out the key members of the %?. They are two guns away from becoming the boondock saints as is.

Ug. I hope she gets called out anytime she tries to peddle herself as a 'loving' anything. I'm sick at her having the legal right to do this.

It's because that sh*t bag of a DA we have in Maricopa is more worried a bout his next tea bagger post. He's to worried bout the sedation of laws passed by the people. He's to worried bout giving anyone not GOP a black eye. The Justice system in the County is run by money grubbing scum. He sets the standards and it's his house. This falls on his head.

Are you positive this is the same Allison Clement? Have you followed up on this childcare posting i.e. called, e-mailed her? If it's her I hope this puts a huge spot light on her attempts to even be in the same room with children. Have more to say about that 'waste of space', but it's not very lady like ;).

Maricopa County, miscommunication... Hmmm, this seems to be so familiar for this office. Do you think anyone in that office is capable of honesty? Integrity? Truth?

How can a sub-human admit to tripping a baby then stomping the baby in it's abdomen!  The baby dies  and no charges are filled!!   Work your magic Anonymous.  This is beyond the craziest thing I've heard.  Let someone smoke a  Blunt in their home and see how quickly charges will be filed.

I cried :( The brutality of this story is sickening... where was this girl's MOTHER!? I am 99% of the time against mob mentality "justice" especially when they have their facts wrong, but the facts in this story are true according to police reports so I can't say I'm against anonymous jumping in. My heart just hurts for that little girl's suffering. :(

Anonymous dudes ride into town, and you in big trouble. Monty should start packing his trash now, since it takes him so long to get things done.

Fry their asses!!! Now!!!

MontyPug you better do your Goddamn job and get justice for Savannah or I guarantee you will NOT have a job as County Attorney for Maricopa County.

@Alicia Hopkins THe mom should be charged with abandonment here. This is not the first child she abandoned. She had a son in NC that she used to drug up so she could go out and she would leave him with the babysitter for days on end.  Fortunately the state took him away before anything really bad happened.  Sadly Savannah did not share the same fate.

@MaskedMagician1967 There are so many ways to smear Monty with the truth that I doubt he could be re-elected in any case. And whoever runs against him will be in full attack mode. Monty will just have to take it. Lying won't do him any good. Even the geezers in Sun City are going to reject him.

You're probably right about the blue hairs rejecting MontyPug. This story has my blood boiling.

Then again, those same people continue to support and elect Arpaio. So I wouldn't be surprised if MontyPug does get re-elected.
