“Rehtaeh Parsons, Canadian Girl, Dies After Suicide Attempt; Parents Allege She Was Raped By 4 Boys
A 17-year-old Canadian girl died Sunday following a suicide attempt last week. The family of Rehtaeh Parsons said that their daughter never recovered from an alleged rape by four teenage boys in November 2011 that left her deeply depressed and rejected by her community.
In a Facebook memorial page, the girl’s mother, Leah Parsons, wrote that Rehtaeh had been shunned and harassed after one of the boys allegedly involved in the rape took a picture of the incident [while she was leaning out a window vomiting, certainly a sign that she not only had no interest but was drunk past the point of any possible consent – PW] and distributed it to their “school and community, where it quickly went viral.”
“Rehtaeh is gone today because of the four boys that thought that raping a 15-year-old girl was okay, and to distribute a photo to ruin her spirit and reputation would be fun,” Parsons wrote.
According to Canadian news outlet CBC, the alleged sexual assault happened at a small gathering at which teenagers consumed alcohol. One of the boys in attendance reportedly took a photo of another boy having sex with Rehtaeh Parsons and sent it to friends.
Gawker writes that the bullying got so bad after the photo circulated that the family was forced to relocate.
“She was never left alone. She had to leave the community. Her friends turned against her. People harassed her. Boys she didn’t know started texting her and Facebooking her asking her to have sex with them. It just never stopped,” Leah Parsons told the CBC.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/09/rehtaeh-parsons-girl-dies-suicide-rape-canada_n_3045033.html
“Police concluded there were no grounds to charge the four boys after a year-long investigation, according to the CBC.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Scott MacRae said the investigation was completed in consultation with prosecutors and said there was insufficient evidence to proceed with charges, the network reported. Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry said he has no plans to review the case because he has no reason to doubt the integrity of the police investigation.” http://www.cbsnews.com/news/rehtaeh-parsons-canada-teen-kills-herself-after-rape-and-bullying-mother-says/ [PW: MacRae and Landry should be required to prove they are not psychopaths. I recall a psychopathic judge letting a rapist off with a slap on the wrist, saying rape (in general) amounted to little more than a slight jostling and bruising. For psychopaths there’s no ‘soul involvement’ in sex / no full adult psychological ‘echoing through the psyche’ aspect to it (more commonly referred to as romantic love) / no emotional intimacy.]
“While she was out the window the two males debated who would go first (this we know from a letter sent to Rehtaeh’s mother from one of the youth following Rehtaeh’s death). When the second male raped her he asked for a photo to be taken. He smiled for the picture and gave a thumbs up. This photo was shared and spread to hundreds of students throughout the Halifax school district.” http://glencanning.com/rehtaeh-parsons/ [This is her father’s website.]
I became acquainted with the criminal tragedy that befell the Parson family from the documentary, No Place to Hide, on rt.com. https://www.rt.com/shows/documentary/321257-no-place-to-hide/
Many aspects just scream of psychopathic involvement and motives. Complete with a photograph of the crime. We’ve seen this in other rapes and in attacks on the homeless. This is consistent with psychopaths’ arrested development, they don’t have the personality development to be self referential (the degree varies widely). They need outside attestation to confirm the purpose of the crime, ‘Wow, that was really wicked, look how you beat, humiliated, etc. the vic’.
In my opinion, the main causes of suicide in young people are, first, the false belief that the sexes are the same psychologically and emotionally and act on the same motives, and, second, being blindsided by psychopathic evil through actions of psychopaths that they didn’t even know existed. Both befell Rehtaeh.
I don’t think the attack was a spur of the moment, a taking advantage of opportunities event. I suspect they had a scenario that they were following. Young male groupings with a rape culture (such as some fraternities, sports clubs, gangs, schools, etc.) have histories of actions, details of which are handed down over the generations of students. They sit around and compare stories, details and ideas for future attacks, just like con artists and career criminals. Elements of the possible scenario here include having a female neutral party, a “girlfriend”, issue the initial invite, bringing Rehtaeh to the planned scene of the crime, and then leaving. Having only two males there at first, with the other two showing up later. Perhaps one of the first two was a disarming psychopathic charmer putting her at ease. The use of alcohol, here vodka, which is close to tasteless in drinks, the inexperienced would have very little idea how fast they could get drunk and lose the capability of self protection. It’s easy to see why they picked Rehtaeh Parsons, she was happy and innocent — two qualities that psychopaths hate, since they can never experience either.
The bullying and harassment went even further. I believe it’s conscious purpose was in fact murder by suicide. Certainly to further their ‘jollies.’ Psychopaths love ‘kicking dogs when they’re down’ — witness the attacks on homeless individuals ‘just for fun’.
After her suicide and the ‘bad publicity’ for the four boys, one of them, it seems, went to social media to malign her memory and threaten her family (under the name iamkarma902). This is classic psychopathy. Psychopaths believe they are fully entitled to do whatever they can get away with and believe that being called on their actions afterwards is hideously unfair.
“On one hand it [iamkarma902] could have been the male in the photo giving a thumbs up and smiling as he rapes Rehtaeh. It was his YouTube account the threat was associated with and the IP went to his house, but was he the one who typed it? Maybe? Maybe not?” http://glencanning.com/2015/06/death-threat-charges-dropped/
