    Rehtaeh Parsons, Teen gang raped, no charges, commits suicide

    Yet another sad, sad story. These bring me to tears, I have 2 teen girls and well, just can't imagine having to watch either one of them suffer so much.

    Heartbreaking!

    Mr. Parsons said individual teachers tried to help her but police and the school authorities did little to deal with the harassment, Mr. Parsons said, even though the family complained that the photo constituted child pornography.

    “They said it was out of their control,” he said.

    He said the RCMP told the family that that they had retraced the picture to one of the boys’ mobile phones but could not prove who had snapped the photo. No charges were laid.

    An RCMP spokesman, Corporal Scott MacRae, confirmed that the force has an on-going probe into the sudden death of a young person and had previously completed an investigation into a sexual-assault complaint.

    “In consultation with the Crown, there was insufficient evidence to lay charges,” Cpl. MacRae said.
    Insufficient evidence? They had a picture of the sexual assault. What more did they need - a video? Perhaps they could've believed the girl and brought the 4 boys in for interrogation? Seems LE dropped the ball on this one. As did the school, for not putting an end to the bullying at school. "Out of their control"??

    And another child is dead....
    This post is my opinion only unless supported with a link.

    WHERE IS SKY METALWALA?

    MISSING SINCE 6 NOVEMBER 2011 when his mother ALLEGEDLY left him in a locked car.
    She has been uncooperative with law enforcement and has seemingly moved on with her life.

    What a horrible message to send to other victims. The justice system won't help you.
    Sick to my stomach.

    It's not completely clear what the picture was of. It was her, in a sex act with a boy, but it's not clear the photo appeared to be an assault vs. a consensual act.

    Once again, as this is usually the case, this incident happened at a party with drinking kids. The water becomes very, very muddy when there is no lab evidence of what happened, and there is one possibly blurry picture and all of them are underage and drinking.

    This crap has to stop. Yet another case where a victim does not get any justice and instead is revictimized. No charges for the photo or it's distribution again. RIP brave young woman.

    There is VERY little information here to go on, Matou. We don't know what happened other than what her mother says, who wasn't there and didn't learn about what happened until several days later when it was too late to do forensic evidence.

    What we do know is there was a photo of some sex act that LE declined to press charges about, all the participants were minors.

    We also know that after her family moved her to a new school to give her a fresh start she was STILL receiving messages - often from strangers - asking for sex.

    How did THAT happen is what I'd like to know. How was she made to keep the same phone number, the same internet/social media ID, where there is no where on the globe she could go and not keep accessing this abuse?

    That harrassment, in my opinion, is black and white.

    The sexual behavior - I don't know.

    And that is why so many sexual assaults go unreported. MOO

    Not that it matters, but I did not see any reference to it being a "party" with drinking kids. I read that her and a friend went to another friends house - and these boys were there.

    Well, actually, it does matter. When you see stories posted on the internet, check it out further. You rarely get the whole story on a forum.

    Sometimes when you see an article posted on this board, it's helpful to google it to get the full story.

    Takes less than a minute.

    So what if they were drinking? Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, of teenagers around the world drink together, even get absolutely incredibly drunk together, without raping someone and taking pictures.

    i meant, it doesn't matter whether or not she had a drink with these boys. my DD was at a friends house last weekend with some others - she is same age, 15 - she was offered a drink but did not come home raped by a bunch of her school buddies...

    that link is a memorial page, it's not her mother's - it states that in a post from yesterday afternoon and refers people to this one, the original one started by her mother:

    I just saw the mother on HLN and Vinnie Politan discussed this story.
