‘Stay strong’ posters in support of Rehtaeh Parsons’ alleged attackers cause storm of controversy in Halifax
Pink posters supporting the boys accused of sexually assaulting Rehtaeh Parsons have cropped up in Halifax and are being promptly torn down by those vowing justice over the 17-year-old’s death.
The posters read ‘Speak the Truth: There’s Two Sides to Every Story. Listen Before You JUDGE’ and have appeared in numerous Halifax neighbourhoods, including near Rehtaeh’s mother Leah Parsons’s home.
“The Truth Will Come Out, Stay Strong and Support The Boys,” the poster, which doesn’t identify the boys, goes on to say.
RCMP Cpl. Scott MacRae says the posters don’t break any laws, but authorities have received a slew of complaints from residents about the flyers.
