Anonymous investigates teenage suicide, forces police to reopen case

Here’s the sequence:

  • Fifteen-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons of Nova Scotia gets drunk at party, gets raped
  • Classmates or rapists take pictures of the assault and pass them around
  • Rehtaeh is bullied and harassed at school, family moves to new town
  • Harassment continues
  • Rehtaeh commits suicide
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police closes case saying there was “insufficient evidence to proceed with charges.”
  • Anonymous gets involved, threatens to expose the rapists unless RCMP brings charges
  • RCMP — surprise! — reopens case, saying they now have new information

HA!
