America, meet the new Steubenville rape case.
Rape tolerance culture has claimed yet another victim, 17-year-old Nova Scotia teen Rehtaeh Parsons, who committed suicide after being gang raped and bullied. Now, the infamous hacker group Anonymous is urging an in-depth investigation into the assault.
If authorities do not comply, however, the hacker group is threatening to release the names of the teens who cyber-bullied Rehtaeh.
According to Jezebel:
Just as in Steubenville, the vigilante internet activists are on the scene, and say they have the names of two of Parsons’ attackers — and that they’re close to identifying a third and fourth.
Anonymous is using this information to spur investigators and attorneys in Novia Scotia to take action on Parsons’ case. Some are calling it an uncharacteristically restrained move from them — and one that will hopefully pay off — but the group has proven that in the past, they will take action if it’s required.
Here’s the group’s full press release via The Daily Dot:
Anonymous engaged [#OpJustice4Rehtaeh] this morning in response to the suicide of Rehtaeh Parsons. Justice Minister Ross Landy says that it is important for Nova Scotians to have faith in their justice system.
Mr. Landy, justice is in your hands. Anonymous has confirmed the identities of two of the four alleged rapists. We are currently confirming a third and it is only a matter of time before the fourth is identified as well.
Our demands are simple: We want the N.S. RCMP to take immediate legal action against the individuals in question. We encourage you to act fast. If we were able to locate these boys within 2 hours, it will not be long before someone else finds them.
We do not approve of vigilante justice as the media claims. That would mean we approve of violent actions against these rapists at the hands of an unruly mob. What we want is justice. And That’s your job. So do it. The names of the rapists will be kept until it is apparent you have no intention of providing justice to Retaeh’s family. Please be aware that there are other groups of Anons also attempting to uncover this information and they may not to wish to wait at all. Better act fast.
Be aware that we will be organizing large demonstrations outside of your headquarters. The rapists will be held accountable for their actions. You will be held accountable for your failure to act.
In other words…Anonymous plays ZERO games. Law enforcement should know that by now. One word. Steubenville.
Let’s hope justice comes fast.
