    Default Teen gang-rape filmed and posted on Facebook

    Police say they can't stop the spread of Pitt Meadows gang rape video - Yahoo! Canada News

    METRO VANCOUVER -- RCMP officers issued an appeal Thursday for the public to stop downloading and file-sharing graphic photos made early Saturday morning showing a 16-year-old girl being gang-raped by a group of seven men at a Pitt Meadows rave.

    "I've been involved in investigating sexual assaults for many years. In that time I've never experienced anything like what is occurring in this investigation," said Sgt. Jennifer Hyland who is leading the investigation.

    She said copies of the images have been "spreading like wildfire."

    "The very public discussion about this victim and the taking and subsequent sharing of photos depicting this rape is disgusting, morally corrupt and criminal," she said.

    Hyland was clearly upset and frustrated that the police have been unable to prevent the girl, who required medical attention following the rape, from being re-victimized by the distribution of the photos.

    The images were taken by a youth who's facing a number of charges for his alleged part in the rape and the subsequent production and distribution of child pornography.

    The images were posted on YouTube within hours of the assault and were removed when police became aware of them Sunday.

    However, copies had been downloaded and have since gone into circulation.

    "I want to be clear about this. What happened after this incident and continues to happen is beyond disgusting. Those photos are child pornography. They have been viewed, shared, saved and re-posted numerous times. This is an offence and is so socially corrupt it is sickening. The posting and viewing of photos is continuing to victimize the young girl and her family and needs to stop," she said

    Hyland said police were desperate to help her overcome the effects of the rapes and the dissemination of images showing what happened was preventing this. Asked how the victim was, Hyland said she wasn't doing too well.

    Police report that they've received complaints from a number of parents whose children had been shown the images and had come home crying and upset.

    The rapes in a field behind a house in an isolated rural area known to police as a party house occurred at about 1 a.m. Saturday during a rave attended by hundreds of youth and adults.

    The victim had become separated from her friends and was believed to have been given a date rape drug, said Insp. Derren Lench.

    "This was a gang rape by several males who took advantage of a female who couldn't consent, was drugged and had no opportunity to defend herself. She was taken to a field by several males who raped her. It was an horrific act," said Lench.

    The girl suffered significant injuries from what police described as an aggressive series of assaults involving between five and seven males that lasted 20 minutes.

    Tickets to the rave had been sold online and there is confusion about whether the police were informed about the rave in advance.

    According to Lench the police had no information the party was going to occur that night and they received no complaints Friday night "that would lead us to attend the property."
    He said police had believed the rave was set for Saturday night and patrols visited the house during Saturday evening but found nothing going on.
    "On the Saturday night we did get a call that a party might occur and our members made numerous patrols and determined there was no party going on. It wasn't until a few days later that we found out the party occurred on the Friday when the rape occurred," said Lench.
    Police only discovered details of the rape after a person who recognized the victim came in and told officers that images of her being raped were on YouTube.
    Officers went out and found the victim Sunday. She was receiving medical care for her injuries.
    Const. Aaron Lloyd said the images of some of the rapists would allow police to identify them.
    With the exception of the photographer, no one else involved in the rape has been arrested although police said they have leads on some of the alleged participants.
    Police are in the process of tracking down anyone who attended the rave.
    Lloyd said the response for information was mixed. Some of the persons who were at the rave were cooperating with police while others were not.
    Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward, he said.
    As for the owners of the property, they were not being cooperative and have so far refused to return phone calls, he said.
    Likewise, the two males police believe organized the rave have not come forward, he said,

    RCMP Insp. Derren Lench opened the news conference Thursday with the following opening statement about a rave in Pitt Meadows on Friday, Sept. 10:
    Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating complaints that stem from a RAVE that occurred on Friday September 10, 2010 on a property in Pitt Meadows. The complaints include allegations of a sexual assault on a young female by a group of individuals. It also centers around postings of photos of the sex act on the social networking site, Facebook. The photos, are child pornography, and our investigation is aimed at those aspects, as well as the sex assault.
    We already know about the party goers having to purchase tickets in advance. This event was publicized on Facebook, and involves a number of youth in our communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. On Tuesday September 14, 2010, our Serious Crimes Unit arrested a male youth for his alleged part in the sex assault, and production of child pornography. This young man has been released, and we're pursuing criminal charges against him. We also have leads on others, and are actively investigating those leads.
    It has now been brought to our attention that people are passing out the photos of the sex assault that are very graphic, and constitutes the distribution of child pornography. We are now investigating those allegations. We're appealing to the parents of the youths, or the youths themselves, who attended this RAVE to contact our office, so our investigators have a clear picture of what transpired at the event, as well as what occurred afterward.
    Police also want to alert all parents of young persons about these types of events. RAVEs are connected with the over consumption of alcoholic beverages, as well as illegal drug use. Many young people have become very ill after attending these events, and often require urgent medical attention. Incidents of 'Date Rape' drugs, such as GHB and Rohypnol, have often been alleged to have been used. 'Date Rape' drugs refer to a drug that can be used to assist in the commission of a sexual assault, such as date rape. Drugs used to facilitate rape may have sedative, hypnotic, dissociative, and/or amnesiac effects, and can be added to a food or drink without the victim's knowledge. After consuming this type of drug, they would have the outer appearance of being quite intoxicated, but conscious, when in reality the victim is not able to function normally, and quite often will pass out into a state of unconsciousness. When under the influence of this type of drug, a victim would not be able to give consent to any requests, such as consenting to have sex.
    We would like parents to be aware of these events, and to notify the police agency having jurisdiction where the RAVE is supposed to take place so we can take a proactive approach against the organizers, and better help protect our young citizens.

    Sgt. Jennifer Hyland, who is in charge of the Ridge Meadows RCMP's Serious Crimes Unit and one of the lead investigators on this file, made the following statement at the same news conference:
    I have been involved in investigating Sexual Assaults for many years. In that time I have never experienced anything like what is occurring in this investigation. The very Public discussion about this Victim and the taking and subsequent sharing of photos depicting this Rape is disgusting, morally corrupt and Criminal.
    Make no mistake, this Girl was Raped, likely drugged, and abused by numerous people. Speaking as a woman, I cannot even imagine what this young girl is going through and has to live with, it is beyond words.
    What happened after this incident and continues to happen is beyond Disgusting. These photos ARE child pornography. They have been viewed, shared, saved and re-posted numerous times. This is an offense and is so socially corrupt it is Sickening. The posting and viewing of the photos is continuing to Victimize this young girl and her family and needs to Stop.
    This was a large party attended by a significant number of people- we know there are many eye witnesses to this sexual assault. These people need to come forward and do the right thing and ensure that those who did this are held accountable for their actions. Regardless of what some people Believe they were watching- This was a Rape.
    This girl could have been anyone's sister, daughter, or friend and that's why I am appealing to anyone with information to come forward to Police.

    Sickeningly, many do as evidenced by the mention that this video was downloaded and spread before it was taken off.

    They need to burn for this, along with anyone who helped distribute it. I hope the Karma Train hits them hard enough to splatter them for a 20 mile radius.

    My big concern now is whether the scum who did this will try and claim that the widespread publication of the images means that they won't get a fair trial. Fucking filth!

    I want to know why this was not reported. Did the girl not tell her family? Did she tell but they decided to not report the assualt? It sucks that the police had to go to her. Would she have gotten any help or medical care if others did not alert the authorities?

    It could be a number of things. If she was drugged, she might not have remembered what happened. She could have thought it was her fault, or that her parents would get mad, or that she asked for it by being drunk. Apparently many of the witnesses said she consented (which we know is bullshit). One of the comments posted on Facebook said "If you knew the true story, you would find it funny". I don't know what page this is, it was in one of the articles. The police said there were many comments that were not printable.

    There is a special place in hell for these kids.

    Such cruelty at such young ages. There's absolutely no regard for human life. That poor girl. How do you ever get over something like that - especially when you never know when a video might pop up and you and many others get to live it again and again? I can't image this happening to me and then watching a video of it.

    Disgusting. I saw the video posted on 4chan this morning. I didn't watch it, but that's just vile.
