Over the last few days we’ve gotten a number of messages from turtle riders about a Facebook post that involves a Worcester resident and show promoter named Tony Scavone. The allegations made in the post are pretty serious.
Normally we don’t jump into Internet rumors, but there were thousands of comments made on that post, and many women came forward with serious accusations, so it merits investigating.
With that said, I’m putting this blog out there to let Tony Scavone know that we’re more than willing to hear his side of the story in the name of fairness. We have no interest in a hit piece, we only care about truth and justice.
With that said, a woman from Philadelphia named Amanda Rivera has appointed herself in charge of the investigation.
She appears to have no background in law enforcement or law in general, and she works as a “Judge and Organizer at Camp Bisco Color War.” According to their Facebook page this is what they do:
Before there were tough mudders or Spartan racers, there was an even crazier group of vividly-dressed, eccentric sports enthusiasts doing ridiculous things in the sun for just one day of the year. 13 years ago, the first Color War exploded on the scene at Camp Bisco in a wave of green, yellow, purple and orange, and the madness has only grown with each passing year. This ain’t no game of thrones — Color War is alternately a Clash of Chess Kings, a Storm of Dodgeballs, a Feast for Bacon-lovers and a Dance-off with Dragons. Where else but here will you find such feats of strength, guile, intelligence and funkiness, all with a backing soundtrack featuring some of the greatest live acts of 2018?
I’m still not sure what any of this means, or what she does for a living, but she’s obviously the natural choice to be in charge of a rape investigation/story.
When I saw that she was collecting statements from alleged victims I reached out to her and it didn’t go as planned. (I thought we were Facebook friends, but I was mistaken)
Well, there she is – the most self-important person on the Internet. Obviously she’s never heard of Turtleboy if she believes the mainstream media outlets she’s “speaking” with are going to cover this story in the way it needs to be covered. Don’t worry, people said the same thing about Greg Bates, Franklin Baxley, Juicin Jeremy, the State Police, and countless other stories we’ve broken. She’ll know who we are soon.
For the record, dozens of women came forward with credible, detailed allegations of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault on that page. We’ve screenshotted all of them. Contrary to popular belief, Facebook is not your diary. When you post something like that on a public post it becomes public testimony. You are legally responsible for it, and we are under no obligation to keep your name a secret.
While we were speaking I messaged the guy who made the post and he has since taken it down. He doesn’t look like he’d be a typical turtle rider.
His virtue signaling and flat brimmed game are on fleek though. Did I say that right?
Anyway, we would like to invite anyone who would like to give us any information on this story to message Clarence Woods Emerson on Facebook, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Bristol, South Shore Turtlegirl, and I will be working on putting this story together, even though we don’t have permission to do so from the hot air balloon judge and organizer in Philly. When we publish it it will be on TBDailyNews.com, so subscribe to that blog if you’re not already. And again, Tony and any friends of his are more than welcome to share their side of the story as well.
