R.I.P Rehtaeh Parsons
Rehtaeh, like many other sexually assaulted young ladies across the globe, has become another statistic in the ever increasing crimes against women. Apparently the Canadian police insist they have no grounds to reopen the case in spite of the fact that Rehtaeh was ‘gang raped’ and a photograph of her half naked was posted on the net by one of the rapists.
The hacker group Anonymous has announced that they will reveal the identity of the four boys (rapists) accused in the affair if the Canadian police don’t reopen their investigation….maybe Anonymous should reveal their identities and let them face the same horrible fate like Rehtaeh…maybe it is time that justice is done!
Ottawa: Another Canadian teen’s suicide after months of harassment and circulation of an image of her alleged rape by four boys has reignited concerns over cyber bullying, and led hacker group Anonymous Thursday to call for a new investigation.
Rehtaeh Parsons, 17, died in hospital on Sunday in the port city of Halifax in easternmost Canada after a suicide attempt that her mother blames on the alleged November 2011 sexual assault and a subsequent barrage of taunts by schoolmates calling her a “slut.”
Parsons was said to have been passed out drunk at a party when she was raped. One of the suspects later posted a photo of the incident online.
Police investigated but no charges were made. Parsons meanwhile moved cities and schools, but the harassment persisted.
The girl’s father Glen Canning echoed the public’s frustrations. “My daughter wasn’t bullied to death, she was disappointed to death. Disappointment in the people she thought she could trust, her school and the police,” he said.
But police insist they have no grounds to reopen their investigation
