New girl blamed to teen bullying suicide case

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A new classmate has been implicated in the death of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide after saying three boys sexually assaulted her and circulated photos of the abuse online.

Audrie Pott hanged herself in September, about a week after passing out drunk at a party at a friend’s house in Northern California.

The 15-year-old said boys she had known for years took off her clothes and sexually assaulted her, including writing and drawing on intimate parts of her body and taking cellphone photos of their actions, according to authorities. Full Article

    All I can say is WTF… 15 and drinking…

    • td777

      Welcome to high school?

      // 15-year olds drinking alcohol. WTF! And lying to their parents and sneaking around! Shocking!

      I hear in the next town over they have some new devil music – Rock and Role they call it, I believe. Who knows what that might lead to. Dancing?

      And… unthinkable, but yes, these precious angels might even be – gasp – fornicating! The horror! // sarcasm off

      bluewall, you do not seem familiar with teenage girls (maybe not a bad thing). And I am guessing you never were one…

      In all seriousness, harassing and tormenting anyone is wrong. Be that a young girl or a person forced to be on a registry. Brubaker is right.

        I’m the father of a girl about to enter high school, and a registrant. Good parenting prevents most of this, but at the same time, I’m not going to pretend those things aren’t out there. But again, the best way to prevent these kinds of things happening to our children is for parents to be responsible parents, to be involved in their kids’ lives and teach them true right from wrong. I’m not saying shelter them, I’m saying teach them. Hillary Clinton’s “it takes a village” couldn’t be more wrong. Twenty years later, and kids are doing far more than they were twenty years ago, with far less respect for elders and authority in general. It doesn’t take a village, it takes PARENTING!

          Hillary Clinton’s “it takes a village” was so wrong because she was basically endorsing the model of villages in certain other countries where father’s are absent. It may be the best answer under those circumstances but not a model to be encouraged.

          Parenting has limits though. In my opinion, the key to parenting is interesting involvement, not aggressive oversight. By which I mean providing them with access to interesting (though potentially dangerous) activities like skiing, snowboarding, boating, and the like. And it is essential that the parent be a figure of reverence, in some manner. I have my issues with my family, but my immediate ancestors are still all illustrious, in my mind.

          15 and drinking suggests a bad family environment to me, in a way 19 and drinking doesn’t. But sometimes, circumstances are just poor for people, and you can’t choose your child’s acquaintances in the public system.

    Surely those guys were on the list for the next sexual assault….
    surely had the guys not taken photos …..they would have
    blamed someone on registry list …..
    if only those guys were on a list this wouldn’t have happened …………..got it …????…..you see the sham…….
    while they have you in fear and keep your eye on the
    registry list………the real threat…the 98 % threat was
    from guys not in list..

  3. Brubaker

    It was wrong to bully the girl in the article……as it is wrong
    to bully people forced to be on registry list…….don’t bully
    anyone…….anyone.
