Olivia Moody: A Bullying Case Of Self Defense or Murder?

By Posted on 108 2 m read

Olivia Moody has always been an exemplary student and individual and from an early age she understood that education was the key to success. She was entering her last year at University of Arkansas Pine Bluff as a Criminal Justice Major. Her list of achievements demonstrates the high regard she has for education. Unbeknownst to her family, Olivia was bullied for quite some time by the same group of girls, yet she persevered and continued to maintain her honor roll status, a part-time retail job, and an internship with Judge Berlin Jones.

One faithful night in June of 2011 the night in which she took the life of Vanessa Bearden in front of a crowd of onlookers in a Pine Bluff apartment complex. According to Olivias account she was fed up with being bullied and bothered by Bearden (An associate of her ex boyfriends new mate) and purchased a gun for self defense. The night of June 11th Bearden and some friends had attacked Moody and followed her home; After the attack Moody confronted the girls and pulled out a 9mm pistol that she had gotten from a friend for protection. Moody fired a single shot at the group hitting Bearden in the shoulder; Bearden later died from the single gunshot wound.

After being arrested Olivia Moody’s family and friends raised 10k for her defense and to help Moody finish school (She graduated in May with a 3.6 GPA and a degree in Criminal Justice). Moody was sentenced a week after her graduation to 30 Years in a Arkansas prison where he daily routine is picking Okra and other random vegetables no different then the cotton her grandmother had picked years ago.

Do you think that this is a case of self defense or a premeditated murder?

    I know both the victim & the [VICTIM] personally. The whole story is not being told. Not only did this group of girls bully her about a man but they have bullied others as well. & not once have they been held accountable for their actions. Murder is murder no matter how or why you did it. But I feel her punishment is too much. We all know when we are fed up we are capable of anything. She didnt kill over a man, she killed because she feared for her safety/life. If the police in Pine BLuff, AR take people’s calls to them more seriously then this wouldnt have happened. If those girls would have been punished like Olivia is being punished then maybe they would have seen that the bullying and running people over with cars is unacceptable. They never take action before hand. The PBPD always wait until someone is killed to take actions smh.. THIS IS DEFINITELY A CASE OF SELF DEFENSE..

      No the whole story is not told. Bearden was there just to jump Olivia. She didn’t know O & O didn’t know her. It wasn’t behind a guy. It was behind Alisha kept messing with her cause she was dating O ex boyfriend. She just wanted to show out in front of here friends that Dey. All this was entertainment for the 8 girls who jumped my bestie boo. She was just walking to the store cause her car broke down. Minding her own business. Alisha was just trying to act tuff running around her saying she hang banging (crip) when she not. Smh just trying to prove a point to her friends that she was quote on quote HARD. To ME she was intimidated of O because she was cute, in school, working, apt, car, & ect. She was trying to be messy. FREE MY BESTIE BOO TIL I C MY BESTIE BOO!!! #TeamO

      It doesn’t meet the legal definition of self defense. Olivia went looking for them. She approached them. She went to looking for a fight and ended up taking a life.

      It’s not premeditated murder. She didn’t know Vanessa. If premeditation could have been proven they would have charged her with first degree murder! It is neither self defense or premeditated murder. It is second degree murder. So let the girl do her time in peace. There is still hope for her. She still has many avenues available to her but she took away all options and possibilities from Vanessa!

      Sometimes I just don’t get it. When people who should be sentenced ‘justily’ (according to their past criminal records and their “regularity dealing with cops/justice systems”) are not sentenced enough, then when someone just doing it on the self-defense reason kill, he/she gets the ‘maximum’.
      Yes, we can say each state has their own systems, but I still don’t get it. The way Olivia talks is so well-educated. You can definitely differ her way of talking with those who are “crime regulars”.
      30 years is totally ridiculous! She should not even be jailed for self-defense killing!! Maybe if she gained the gun without permit, yes, she should get some justice for that, but other than that? Makes me tempered to see stupid judicial system.
      That’s what happened when God is no longer part of our lives:(

      who wrote this? a shoulder wound? more like shot in the back and the bullet went through her chest! and it was not a purchased gun. she went and got it from someone after the fight was over! and how could they follow her home if she never went there after the fight?

    This is such a sad situation. I don’t know either of these ladies, but I have been following the story. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I strongly believe that this was an act out of self defense. I am from Pine Bluff and have been stalked and harassed by ex-boyfriends and polices didn’t do anything about it. I experienced them breaking in my home and waiting around for me to come home. I would call the police and they would say, if you didn’t see them break in, we can’t do nothing. I am a single mom with three kids, working, and finishing up my Bachelors in Computer Science. My home had been vandalized several times, 5 times to be exact. I moved so they wouldn’t know where I was, just to get peace and protect me and my kids. He paid someone to find out where I live. Once again, my home was being broken into, him following me around, chasing my sister with a gun, yet and still police did nothing. I decided it was time for me to protect myself. Enough was enough. I took the class to get my concealed handgun permit and purchased me a 9mil. I carried it faithfully because I have kids to protect. He came to my house one day, parked his car somewhere else, and knocked on my door betraying to be someone else. I knew the voice. I told them to hold one second real nicely. I went to go get my gun. I said a prayer while walking to my room, I said lord if it ain’t his time to meet his maker, take control of me and this situation. I came back, opened my door, and had that 9 all up in his face. He was like I just wanted to talk, please don’t shoot. I told him how tired I was, I was fed up, and enough is enough. I didn’t have no fear in me. I told him he didn’t have not one more time to come to my place or bother again or I will aim and shoot without asking any questions. I was never bothered again. I would see him and he would just look. Sometimes you get put into these situations without asking for it. When you doing the right thing, minding your own business, and someone continuously bother you, you get pushed to take these type of actions. She only did what any other human being would have done. The police are part of the reason why we take matters in our own hand. I do not like guns nor did I ever want to purchase one, but I had to protect myself. Its not fun living your life in fear, being tortured, bullied, and jumped on. I hate the fact that this woman life was taken, but I know how Olivia must have felt. I could see if she just randomly went on a shooting spree, but this lady was probably fed up, and when she stepped outside of herself, she took action. This young lady had a child of her own, why she was out with a group of girls trying to fight. Her friends wasn’t her friends. Who ever these group of girls is, need to be punished as well. Trust and believe, god isn’t done yet. We may think they have gotten away, but god will deal with them. I pray this young lady keep fighting for justice, because justice has not prevailed. She didn’t deserve this. I know someone who is very very close to me, shot a women between the eyes and a man in the jaw with a tek-9 and got 10 years, 6 years suspended, and ended up with 4. This took place all because of drug money. They did a total of 19 months. My point is this lady was defending herself and got 30 years, this man served 19 months and took a life and wounded another because they owed him. Where is the justice in Olivia case. To god be the glory. I pray god bless this lady with a second chane at life. She deserve it. Just contine to pray and look to the hills, give this battle to god and he will handle the rest. It rains on the just as well as the unjust, but when god step in and take control, just trust him, he will show up and show out. Everything happens for a reason, even though we might not understand his reason, but trust him. Lean on god because he hasn’t forgotten about you, he just want your attention. Let him use you and work through you. You got the victory when you learn to just trust in the lord. People may think this about you and that, they may think you got what you deserve, but hey it don’t matter what they think. Hold your head up high, smile at your enemies, and trust god. He will never leave you or forsaken you. I will continue to pray for this young lady. It’s just a minor set back for a major come back. Just believe and trust god.

      From watching the video i strongly feel like this girl is innocent. I don’t know her or her situation but I can clearly see that her attitude shows that she is not capable of murder. I live in New Orleans Louisiana and i see alot going on. If the girls wouldnt have been bullying her then I don’t think she would have shot anyone. Olivia please keep your head up. If you keep trusting in God he will never let you down. I feel like you will be home soon to your family and all of this will be behind you. The devil is trying to attack your life but God has come to take over your your life. The devil has no power so he used those girls to bully you so you could act out. Don’t give in and whatever you do please don’t give up. You will be back to your life shortly and those 30 years will surely fade away. I have faith that God will turn those 30 years around and you won’t be in prison long. You are a very beautiful young woman and seems like you have a great head on your shoulders. Write your book so that other people that’s being bullied can see what you went through. Stay strong and hold on cause your battle is already won. YOU WILL BE SET FREE MS. MOODY YOU WILL BE SET FREE. SO START REJOICING AND CLAPPING YOUR HANDS CAUSE YOUR VICTORY IS ALREADY WON

    Olivia appears to be a victim of our society and a victim of poor choices. Victimized by society because she chose to do what “THEY” do instead of what She knew was right. There does seem to be mitigating circumstances that should have been taken into consideration when she was sentenced. May God have mercy on all those involved….C…

      Hello,

      I know that Olivia acted out of self-defense. You get tired of being bullied and always having to worry about who is behind you at night or if you’ll see them and what will they do to you. Society is really crazy. Olivia was completely sick of it all and knew that nothing was going to change with these girls jumping on her. I am in college, working, I have a 3.9 GPA and I am focused on my future. I have found Olivia’s address via google so I can write her and tell her not to lose hope because the Lord works in mysterious ways. I will fight on for her and her dream so she can finish on with her journey. GOD knows that she needed a break from the street life, he’s only letting her rest for the rest of her future. I’ll keep her in my prayers and will continue to write her through-out my last year in college.

      Difficult people are a part of life. She had options that she chose not to utilize. It is ridiculous to suggest that we ignore the fact that she took a life. Do we then ignore the next time she acts out negatively or dangerously because she feels trapped or afraid? Where do we draw the line? We can’t prove bullying because it wasn’t reported but we can prove the murder she was convicted of

      I went to college with Olivia I met her at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in the year of 2008! The day we met was the first day of a beautiful friendship… We have never argued never had to fight and Lord knows we never carried guns or talked about shooting people. But one thing about Pine Bluff that I HAVE LEARNED is that when you are BEAUTIFUL and have GREAT things going for yourself these lil females around here want you dead seem like! And most of the time the way its done over here in the BLUFF CITY is if a girl have an issue with you … She not gone just let it be between you and her she gone call ALL her ratchet ass friends with GREEN and PURPLE hair in the heads drving cars with BIG 99 inch rims on it… I mean what kind of WOMAN with class and respect about her self would want to even go out like that? And you got to be BOLD to come to fight a person you DONT EVEN KNOW. You dont know what this person is capable of doing to you while you tryna come fight for your homegirl! THIS WAS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHAT CAN HAPPEN THOUGH!! In Olivia case she wasnt from around here and all her family lives in Chicago so they thought they could whoop her ass everytime they saw her! And my thing is the day she killed the girl was not the FIRST TIME these females approached her… I recall her fighting with these same girls for about 1year or 2… Dont know why that NEVER came out in court. But all that is irrelevent now… Gettn a lawyer and gettin this appeal BACK INTO the courts is where we at right now! AND WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS!!! One thing I know we have on our team is some PRAYER WARRIORS!!! Oliva said to tell yawl this “ALL THE GREAT PEOPLE NAMES START WITH AN O… OPRAH GOT HER CHANCE … OBAMA GOT HIS CHANCE NOW ITS TIME FOR ME OLIVIA TO GET MY CHANCE… FREE ME TIL YOU SEE ME”

    I think this is a sad situation all the way around. While I don’t think that 30 years is a justifiable punishment it was murder no matter how you slice it! She knew what she had done by the letter of the law. she was able to inform the lead investigator that it was second degree murder. She may not have been thinking clearly but by her own admission she approached the group of girls, which takes away any basis of self defense. She brought a gun to a fight that most likely would have been only fists. She had outlets and options and chose to do something illegal. Her education does not weigh in her favor. She could have reached out to a professor or the judge she interned for or a police officer. She could ha e used the knowledge she acquired in the classroom to her advantage. She rejected a plea that would have kept her out if jail. She rolled the dice and lost. Her family can visit her or write her letters. All mine has is memories.

    I’m sad she has to spend part of her life in prison but at least she still has a life to live! Let’s not forget that she took a life.

      Them following her home is legally irrelevant because she chose to leave her home and go find them. Her going to find them. She initiated the confrontation that resulted in murder. If she stole because she was hungry there would still be a sentence.

      Wow, you truly are pathetic. “Murder is murder”. LOL. What a fucking joke. There are millions of people on this planet that deserve to die this very instant for being worthless malicious pieces of shit. These people make life hell for the “normal persons” who have to live on normal streets. The rich people get to live in gated communities and use their money to avoid all these problems. Why shouldn’t “normal people” be able to defend themselves?

      NOBODY has the right to make some random person feel uncomfortable in their home, or walking down the street.

      I’m glad this bully is dead and it’s only a shame all her friends didn’t die with her.

    Every since I have seen this story my heart has went out very strongly to Olivia and it bothers me so much that this girl got sentenced to 30 years for defending herself, I am deeply sorry that the Vanessa loss her life, but they were there to cause harm to this girl, and she simply defended herself, instead of Vanessa being out with friends trying to jump on this girl maybe she should have been at home being a mother to her 2 kids attempting to set an example. This sounds like a classic case of intimidation gone wrong, those girls sought out to bully and cause harm to another individual and got dealt with, because I can’t say with confidence if I was in her position I wouldn’t have done the same, in a sense its like since the girl lost her life, what she was doing at the time was supposed to be excusable, she was just as much in the wrong.. #freeolivia

      Olivia chose to be judge jury and executioner for Vanessa. Olivia received a fair trial and a sentence after that trial. You sound like you are sayng because she may have been bothered that day she should get away with it. The legal system works. Other wise she would not have wanted to be a part of it. She committed a crime. The reason is not important.

    I hate what happen to Vanessa, but regardless of the fact, why was she even there? If that many girls was trying to jump me, I would have done the same thing. Enough is enough. I’m not go say that Vanessa got what she deserve, but the devil will use you and then laugh at you because you fell in his trap. I strongly believe that if them girls wasn’t bothering this young lady, she wouldn’t have done what she did. If them girls would have been minding there own business instead a of acting like they are Pine Bluff Gangsters, then they friend would still be alive. You know what the side part is, Vanessa was there to help a friend, but the friend is yet alive. To be honest, her butt need to be locked up too, for initiating this whole mess. Her education will not work in her favor at this point, but when she return she got a weapon/tool to fight with to get a descent job. You other sick friends who was there to jump this lady, what you got? Y’all need to be on your knees thanking god and counting your blessings. They thought they were go be able to jump this lady like they previously did and get away with it!!!!! Ohhh but Olivia had a surprise for them. If people would follow the rules we learned in school, keep hands, feet, and all other objects to yourself. They shouldn’t have been bothering this young lady. I fell like if you want to live the life of a thug, you will die like a thug. I just hope these so called friends who got together to jump this woman and put they friend life in danger is working hard everyday to take care of Vanessa kids. I know god doesn’t make mistakes. Olivia Moody, hold your head up, the victory shall be yours. God got some work for you to do. He need you to seek him, to get through this. Trust and believe him, he will get you through this. You most definitely want do them 30 years. Keep fighting baby girl for your victory. I will be writing this young lady, so that she will stay encourage. I’m all the way for Free Olivia. Sorry about your friend Or family member death, but her friends didn’t care to much about her, to put her in a predicament like that. Friends don’t put friends in harms way. Yes Olivia took a life, but for what reason???? Not because she went out and decided she want to bully some girls and follow them around, she did it because they was doing that to her. These people need to get somewhere at sat down or get an education like this young lady was doing, so she could do better for herself. I hope people learned from this. You can’t predict how a situation is going to turn out, never go fight someone elses battle, you see the original gang leader still out free and the friend is dead. All day every day free Olivia and let the friend who initiated the fight do the time!!!!

She studied.it.in school and.now she is getting first hand experience. Sad but true. She has time to get it together, but legally she should not go free and.she knows.that whig is why she corrected the lead detective and told him it was murder 2. Olivia knows what she did.

      She free yet? It amazes me how family and friends put logic in the backseat even when their own are wrong. Your know different then the mother of a serial rapist who states “he just needs to find a wife and he will stop.” Ignorance at its best! The criminal justice system she studied could have worked for her if she called the police instead of arming herself with and illegal weapon and becoming a vigilant murderer. Just incase you don’t know even a father with a murdered child can’t murder the man who took that child’s life. That would be a crime of passion that still would result in time behind bars. Just because this girl went to school and her childhood was difficult doesn’t mean she deserves to walk away from the poor decision she made that day. There are several educated individuals in prison today that make fatal decisions that cost them their lives or time behind bars. Stop using the “bullying” term as an excuse. She is exactly were she decided to be when she decided to pick up a gun instead of a telephone. I have lived in Pinebluff and I know how hard it is for young girls there but it is no excuse for shoting someone in the BACK! Back means this person by law was fleeing. Free Olivia my a**.

    Sometimes when you are being bullied and no one is helping to resolve the situation you have to ask God for help. I think Olivia should have let God handle the situation, and put it in his hands. It seems to me she just snapped. And she was tired of the abuse that this girl was dishing out. So she handled the situation the best way she could. But I know that she regrets doing what she did. Whether some approve of it, or not. God said it best in the Bible. “Thou shalt not kill/murder”. I hope that she asks for forgiveness from God, and continue her education, and truly find herself.

      I hear what you are saying, but Olivia did not know Vanessa! They met that day. She was upset that Vanessa had a video of her being jumped. She called for that group of girls. Olivia went looking for a fight. She got close enough to them for them to see the gun; and when they starting running she decided to shoot. She has to own her garbage.

      Although taking a life is wrong, 30 years is to much! All sides need the blame, especially the police. May that girl rest in peace, but nothing gave her the right to bother that young lady! Either way it should not have been murder 2! She is going live the rest of her life knowing what she has done! She did what any other human being would do. She protected herself the only way she knew how at the time. The situation is a lose-lose because everyone lost someone. To me its self defense because they followed her home to her area with the intent to do physical bodily harm! But that’s just my opinion! It don’t matter if she went in and came back out, they were still in the vicinity ready to hurt her! Even if she would have left the house with the gun on her and they attacked her the situation would still be the same! So you can’t put all the fault on Olivia because she was tangling with more than one! Wow a shot to the shoulder resulted in death! I pray that God works it out on both ends because in the end Society is the real one to blame for a situation that could have been avoided if only the police would have done there job.

    First Off Let Me Start By Saying This. Whoever Ril Vanessa Is Really Needs To Shut Up Because Reading Your Comments Are Pissing Me Off. But Anywho I Know What It Feels Like To Be Bullied, Lonely,Scared,etc. I Was Just Like Olivia My Mom Did Drugs&She Was A Prostitute. My Dad Was A Pimp&He Did Drugs So I Ended Up Being Adopted. When My Adoptive mom died I ended up living with my adoptive moms niece but she was wayyyy older than me. Her and her kids treated me like trash. They always said I was Gne end up with three or four kids before I graduated high school, that I was Gne end up just like my real mom(a prostitute and drug addict), told me don’t nobody want me or give a f abt me, used to gain up on me and make me feel cornered. I was alone and afraid. One day her 19 year old son I was just 17 started picking with me she had left the house and went idk where. I was on the computer and I had left from the computer room to go get something out of the kitchen and before I made it into the kitchen he ran in the computer room and jumped in the chair and started scrolling thru my fb so I went in there and said I’m still using the computer he started getting all loud and calling me out my name so I just said let me log out my stuff and i got the mouse and he snatched it out my hand and I snatched it back so he pushed me and I got the mouse again and he got up and pushed me on the floor and started hitting me and choking me where I couldn’t breathe then he got up and walked off acting nervous and called him mom saying we had gt into a fight and I started it which I didn’t. She called me and asked me what happened while I was telling her what happened he got in my face and started calling me a b and snatched the phone outta my hand and I said give it back and he said b I’m not giving u shit so I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror I had bruises everywhere. So when I went into the kitchen to fix me something to eat he started back to calln me all kind of names and just kept tlkn shit. And while he was talking I was thinking abt every little thing they had ever done to me to hurt me physically mentally or emotionally and the next thing I know I was running down the street with a bloody knife in my hand and from thre to interrogation and from there to a court room with an attempted murder charge including a 500,000 bond which turned into sec. Degree batt with a 50,000 bond after evidence showed that I was abused. I didn’t kno what I had done bc I blacked out but after they told me I knew I was wrong but I had taken all I could take. I prayed and left it in the lords hand and when I made bond I continued to go to court over a year and they pulled his records and mines. mines was clean his records on the other hand had the same exact stuff Vanessa had on hers(robbery and aggravated assaults) the threw my case out. My play brother killed a boy because he was being bullied by a group of boys way older them him because hes popular,handsome, smart,and gt his own records.they came over to his moms apartment complex picking a fight and the boy that lost his life lost it because he was try a fight his friends battle(same thing Vanessa was doing) & the question is where are they friends now kicked back and relax &waiting to find somebody else to put in danger because of the mess they cause. What some people fail to realize is that bullying is not what it used to be when we were in elementary and high school when we could tell the principles, teachers, or our parents. Most people don’t have that protection now and the police always say they can’t do nothing but put a report on file because the action wasnt committed in the sight of them and when a tragedy do happen those reports dont mean nothing.People need to stop all this hating and stop try a be thugs because that shit Gettn millions of people hurt every single hour of every single day. To Olivia keep your head up babygirl& just pray to the man upstairs I promise you he won’t put more on you than you can bear.everything happens for a reason maybe this is just a lesson from him telling you to put your trust in him no matter what or how hard the situation is. JUST SEEK YE THE KINGDOM OF GOD &HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS&ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. I’m praying for you sweetie! & To her family don’t worry yourselves &cry your loved one will be home soon god just needs you all to trust in him.

      Sounds like you an your “play brother” had a different situation. You both attacked the people that had been causing you continual problems. Olivia shot a woman she had no prior dealings with before that day….again I say she shot someone she met that day! So a defense of bullying for years was not appropriate because she just met her, I.e. she didn’t know her for years.

      And lastly Vanessa had no criminal record so please stop propagating lies.

      • Venessa killed herself and Olivia
        June 23, 2015

        Right! Olivia didn’t know her and she didn’t know Olivia. Therefore, why was she there. She should have been at home with her children. I feel sorry that Olivia had to lower herself to such low standards. God has a way of sitting you down. This was his way. I feel the Lord is going to release Olivia when the time is right. I thank God that no one else will have to face the girl who passed and I pray her children turn out better than she did. Bullying and fighting got her killed. Also, being jealous and envious cause her to die. The girl and her friends clearly knew they were not going anywhere in life and they saw someone who was, became upset bc they would never be or have what Olivia had. I pray that Olivia uses this journey as her platform to encourage educated women dealing with these two timing men who deal with these third, to let them go! I have to ask myself what would you do? No I wouldn’t get a gun and no I wouldn’t try to confront them but I do know when you’re trying to better yourself you don’t want your employer and people you work with to know u are having personal issues so I understand why she didn’t ask them for help. Venessa and her friends should have left that girl alone. It’s venessa’s in the world that make it hard for black women. Olivia thank you because now the world is better. It’s just said that Venesssa won this round but God has the last say so.

    I truly believe that this is a self-defense case. The young lady was just tired of the bullying regardless if vanessa was there for all of it or just this one time she was caught up at the wrong place at the wrong time. She should have been at home with her two little children instead of out trying to bully someone with her friend (just foolishness). I am a firm believer that a gun does not have anyones name on it so regardless of who it hit God had plans for that bullet. He knew who was going to die and he knew Olivia was going to pull that trigger. This all could have been avoid if the group of bullies would have went home instead of waiting for Olivia at her apartments. The thing that is bothering me is that RIP Vanessa refuses to admit vanessa faults like she did have a record and she did have a knife on her so they were planning to harm her so either way it went it would have been a tragic outcome. So maybe you should re-evaluate this whole situation and put yourself in Olivia place as well as vanessa

    Olivia Moody, was doing her best to ignore the abuse and carry on with her life in Arkansas where she only needed to finish up degree. The bullies came after her to beat her up and possibly kill her. She was a victim of repeated harassment.

    First of all it was indeed a fateful night (not a faithful one). She showed some incredibly poor judgement in having a gun. That decision has been at the cost of her youth. Being bullied is not the end of the world, people learn ways of dealing with it as an adult. The group of girls were acting like 10 year olds, but in a few months they would have been in the past and this young lady would have been starting her life. Instead she is heading to prison.

    HOW LONG WAS THIS YOUNG LADY SUPPOSE TO ENDURE THE MESS N DRAMA. PEOPLE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND UNTIL U WALK THAT ROAD. SOME PEOPLE DO HAVE A REASON FOR LIVING AND DOING GOOD IN LIFE. WAS SHE SUPPOSE TO KEEP GETTING BEAT UP I MEAN GOOD GOD SOMETIMES ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I AM SORRY THAT IT WAS A DEATH. BUT IF IT WAS HER THAT WAS KILLED BY THE YOUNG LADY THEN WHAT. LIFE IS NOT FAIR. I AM PRAYING FOR OLIVIA AND HER FAMILY AS WELL AS THE OTHER FAMILY.GOD IS GOOD AND I TRULY BELIEVE THAT OLIVIA WILL BE FREE SOON.WE AS PARENTS NEED TO RAISE OUR KIDS TO RESPECT OTHER. AND TEACH THEM THAT YOU CANT HAVE EVERYTHING AND ANYONE YOU SEE. I HAVE TWO KIDS AND IF THAT WAS MY DAUGHTER DOING THE BULLING I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE HER TO GOD. BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT RAISED TO ACT LIKE THAT. WE ALL MOST REALIZE THAT THINGS LIKE BULLING STARTS AT HOME WAY BEFORE COLLEGE. AND I AM SURE OLIVIA IS NOT THE FIRST.I AM TRULY SORRY A LIFE WAS TAKEN. BUT IF YOU CHECK THE YOUNG LADIES BACKGROUND THINGS WILL BE ALOT DIFFERENT. WE ALL GET TIRED AND FED UP. AND WHEN YOU ARE SCARED WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO KEEP RUNNING OR STAND YOUR GROUND. GOD PLEASE BLESS AND KEEP BOTH OF THESE FAMILIES WRAP IN YOUR ARMS AND GIVE SOME UNDERSTANDING AND PEACE. IN YOUR NAME FATHER I PRAY.

      This young lady had options that did not involve murder. Why is it that she couldn’t start with the least brutal option? You shot someone in your lawn in Arkansas and you don’t go to jail because they trespass so why is it that Olivia is in jail? It is because she followed a group of girls and gunned one down! She was not getting beat up or in danger at the time that resulted in her drawing a weapon and firing. She is not a victim. She is a youth that made a stupid decision that she will need to live with the consequences.

    From what I have been reading since this story has been shared with me is an absolute nightmare. My suggestion would be hire an appeals lawyer, one not from Arkansas and file an appeal, the reason is she has never been in any trouble, she had complained repeatedly about her situation and lastly her obtaining her degree despite her being in trouble. It has been my experience that 1st offenders usually do not receive the maximum penalty below capital murder. At best her lawyer should’ve went for manslaughter in which a person unintentionally kills another person.

    • RIP Vanessa

      She received the maximum penalty because she declined the plea that would have kept her out of prison. This story doesn’t tell you that though ..

    I have read on this story many times. Firts of all, RIP Vanessa – I hear you. I hear you clearly. I am sorry for your lost and will pray for you and your family. Of all the stories I have read, it appers as though this young lady Olivia really was bullied. Vanessa may not have known Olivia and she may have very well been in the wrong place at the wrong time. But, there is an old saying: If you want to know who I am, watch the company I keep. Why was Vanessa there if she has a child at home? Why was she recording the fight or even showing it around? You expect that of high shool kids, but not grown adults let alone when they have children. Olivia is guilty of murder because she took a life. I do not believe she deserves 30 years, but I do believe that she has to serve some time and should not walk free. On the same note, the girls who jumped her, their families, and the family of the Vanessa need to really take a look at the situation and see where they went wrong. You don’t go out there bullying and jumping people. We are humans not animals. That guy that all of this stemmed from will be leaving his life and on to th next while these stupid girls still out there with the same drama. May God Bless Olivia, Vanessa, and both their families because this is the tragic truth of our African American people. Nobody won, everybody lost.

It don’t tell you dat doe. One of the girls admitted IN TRIAL THAT THEY DID IT FOR ENTERTAINMENT. OLIVIA admitted that she was wrong in her video(TRUE). RIP NESSA you make it seem like NESSA was so freaking innocent(LIES). Just face da fact that she shouldn’t have never been there tryna fight Alisha Fight. Child Alisha ain’t even messed up. Instead of tryna Comment behind every comment that’s begin made, you need to be talking 2 ALISHA. Yea Olivia pulled da trigger but NESSA PLACED herself there. NESSA new from jump she going to go jump somebody. Hell NESSA was picking with my cousin hunny…before she died she cut my homegirl cuzn with a knife boo.

      September 5, 2012

      I am sticking to the reality of the story. If bullying for years is your reason for shooting someone you didn’t know then that’s why Olivia is in jail….it doesn’t make legal sense. If Vanessa lost her life as a result of her choice to be there then by the same logic Olivia lost her freedom as a result of her choice to shoot. And yes Olivia may not have had a record but let’s stick to the facts she has one now. She had an opportunity to take the plea. She wasn’t done wrong, she chose the trial and since by your logic it’s all about choice then prison is where she belongs.

    That jury should be ashamed of itself. This is a case of dumb people (all the morons who live in these fly-over states) being conditioned to think “all killing is bad” as a method to control the public.

    Think of how many cases where a victim ends up being killed by their stalker/bully because they DIDN’T take action.

    If the girl didn’t want to die, then she should have NOT walked outside her house to bully someone who was completely innocent.

    The world would be a better place if more of these bullies and harassers were shot dead on the spot. Women can’t even walk down the street these days without getting harassed by creepy ass men. Oh how lovely would it be if all of those assholes were killed.

    So much bitterness. This is bothersome. I understand the upset of losing a loved one to violence. However, I do warn and try to talk to anyone I know out of their bad habits and actions. When something like this happens, how can you be mad? Same thing for knowing my loved one was packing a gun. You can go in to the police station and file a report. That doesn’t put up an invisible shield but it is something put down on paper. Don’t look for trouble. Should trouble approach you, then go from there. I know things can happen so fast that one reacts w/o thinking clearly…I’m jusSayin…don’t let satan have his way in your lives.

    Seems to me that something is very wrong when you’re willing to die for a friend instead of living for your kids.(I gave up lots of things when I became a parent) You picked, bullied, fought and was packing a weapon. It’s kill or be killed. That seemed to be Vanessa’s mentality. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Where I’m going with this is that you can’t walk on hot coal and not get burned. Eventually, you will be served consequences. Had Vanessa stood and not run, she may still be alive today. All that the devil had fueled her with was gone in an instant. He left her and took her courage. God will never leave your side.
    I pray that since she didn’t die immediately, that just maybe she got prayed up with God. When all the dust settles, God gives us life and He takes it away. The only right you have to make is with Him.
    As for Olivia, she should be in prayer as well. I can see doing the same thing in this situation. It’s because “we” let things go for so long. During that time we should be turning it over to God.
    Don’t hold on to a problem we think we can handle. Give it to God in prayer, immediately. You broke the law, you broke a commandment, you’re where you’re supposed to be at least for now.The media only want a story. Not one of them are trying to contribute to your appeal. Stay off the camera, get a bible, stay steadfast in prayer and meditation.
    It doesn’t matter what the judge says, just like it didn’t matter what your books showed. You can get time w/o having priors.

    God has the final say.
    Be encouraged, all of you.
    May God add blessings to both females’ friends, and families.

    What a crazy story. Moody did make the mistake to arm herself with a gun. It would have been more reasonable to arm herself with some friends to stay at her place. Also she should have learned how to use the gun. It may be second degree murder but it is surely first degree stupidity. To fire a gun without aiming properly. At the same time, how unlucky for the girl to bleed out because of a shoulder wound. I think the friend who gave Moody the gun should also go to prison. I hope Moody will get out after seven years or so. And that she never touches a gun again.

    I can’t believe some of the things I’m reading, great comments and maybe NOT so great comments. Somebody said the girls were just there to jump her, is that suppose to be a defense? So they weren’t there to kill Olivia……just jump her? Well lets see, how many times has someone been killed accidentally in a fight with no weapons? Maybe not a lot, but it happens. You have that 1 person that carries a fight too far….and someone gets killed. Olivia shot her gun and it hit ONE of the girls. Meaning there were several girls there. Point is, if these girls weren’t there stalking Olivia , which “Stalking” I believe is breaking the law, no harm would of came to any of them. Yeah I said it. It’s like a burglar breaking into your house, getting shot, then suing you for his injuries. If he didn’t break the law, no harm would of came to him.

    But the fact is, the girl was in constant fear of her life, you can’t protect yourself from several people by yourself, she knew this, everybody should know this.

    When you live in a constant fear you go into a certain state of mind where you will go to extremes to protect yourself and stop the threat. Olivia just wanted it all to stop, who can blame her.

    I too empathize with the girl who was killed, then again she was only fearful for a few seconds when she saw the gun, how long was Olivia fearful for her life? The girl should of never been a part to stalking/bullying and this never would of came to this sad conclusion.

    Hopefully some decent lawyers will take Olivia’s case and get her an appeal. The sentence was wayyyy to harsh, like a previous comment stated, there are worst crimes than this and people walk away with low low sentences.

I am also outraged that Olivia has to serve 30 years. This is a young lately who had a great future in front of her. She indeed made a bad choice in having a gun but what about a mob of women jumping her. They could have just as well killed her. Are any of them being charged with attempted murder??? I believe that Olivia was scared and hurt and didnt intend on murdering anyone. She didnt take the plea because she felt in her heart that it was self defense. No one can ever say if they were put in shoes what they would have done. You only know how you will respond when it happens. Tragic situation…………

Good people don’t go get illegal guns from others and fire randomly into crowds. I’m a good person and I have been in bad situations and never have I ever not thought of the consequences if I put a gun in my had with the intent to do harm to others. That’s what good people do! They think first before they selfishly choose to harm others.

    While I understand that someone may want to see Olivia free. The justice system is here for a reason. You can not kill someone and then tell police by the way they bullied me. is it actually bullying if you become a willful participant. People may say and think that this was Olivia’s god given right but it was not. She never saw the victim with a weapon so she could not reasonably conclude her life was in danger. With that being said anyone who was in court that day had to hear Olivia testify that she went to “talk” to her victim ( with a weapon in tow).

Right, I beleive 8-9 females jumping you photos don’t exist. Olivia is not more important then Vanessa because she selected college. Maybe if Olivia stayed focused on her studies instead of boys and the street like she admitted she wouldn’t have ended up in prison. Olivia reached a fork in the road and selected the wrong path and she is now a murderer. She may be smart, funny, helpful and all the other titles I see posted here but one of her titles is murderer. In the eyes of God there is no self defense. She is a murderer.

    Olivia became the best friend I ever have had when we worked side by side in prison in the law library. She was my “other arm” so to speak. I loved her like a sister we both worked our butts off together and it broke my heart when I had to leave her there. She is a victim of bullying- she deserves to be free. She’s young,smart, dedicated and completely hilarious she kept me laughing even when I felt like crying. If anyone can help support her and her freedom please step up., my name is Chris Blackerby and Olivia Moody changed my life

    I have been following this story from the beginning and first off may I say RIP Vanessa. As a mother of two she should have been with those kids. Her so called friend Alisha has moved out of state and doing her. She started this mess because she could not fight her own battle. Now two women lives have changed forever. Olive I don’t know u personal but my cousin speaks highly of u and said u was the only one to sign his yearbook. I will be writing u soon. To that bitch Alisha she luckily she ran out of state because she got ass whippings lined
