RCMP in British Columbia were alerted at least five times over the course of nearly two years about the ongoing sexual extortion of Amanda Todd before the teen committed suicide, CBC’sthe fifth estate has learned.
Amanda, 15, committed suicide in her mother’s Port Coquitlam home on Oct. 10, 2012.
Her death garnered intense public attention because of a YouTube video she posted weeks before her death detailing the relentless bullying she endured after a topless picture of her was shared via social media.
The B.C. teen had been the target of a sexual extortionist for nearly two years after she flashed a crowd by webcam while on a live streaming chat site.
Someone captured a freeze frame of the teen topless and then used that photo to repeatedly try to blackmail her for more webcam “shows.”

Yeah, this is a classic case of the police not doing a damn thing until it's too late. They had plenty of warnings from the mother about this. Rather do what they did in Ontario by posing as the account to nab the bastard, they did nothing. Also, telling the mom for Amanda to stay off line wouldn't do shit. That wouldn't stop the sick pervert from spreading more bullshit about her online for her friends and people that know her at school, which would caused more bullying in person. Also, this case was far more than just cyber bullying. This was a sexual predator harassing and black mailing a minor to give them more sex shows, which (and correct me if I'm wrong) kinda falls in the category of child pornography.
So, in conclusion...RCMP=you failed. I hope she haunts you all.
