Woman was 17 and left handcuffed in back of pollice van with unrestrained sex offender. Police caught him raping her, and they were cleared of wrongdoing.




A woman is suing a police officer who locked her in the back of a van with a convicted sex offender who then raped her in Canada.

The unnamed complainant was 17 when she was detained on 19 September 2011 in Tasiujaq, an Inuit village in northern Quebec, on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

The lawsuit, which names the officer involved as well as the local police service and the regional government, claims “a serious lack of professionalism and gross negligence” from the police and seeks $400,000 (£210,000) compensation, CBC Canada reported.



The worst part, after this girl was raped in the police van, they never bothered to take her to the hospital, they didn't bother to contact her parents. Nothing. AND, just like the US. Cleared of all wrongdoing. I'll be back, I'm going to be sick....

More links before I go...

After she was assaulted the teenager was still kept in a cell overnight, not giving any medical attention nor were her parents told about the incident, reported the Independent.

The lawsuit claims the same officer, the only one on duty at the time, slammed the cell door in the woman’s face, breaking her tooth. No rape kit was performed and the woman’s parents were not contacted.



The lone officer responsible, who had been on the job less than a month and was not authorized to carry a handgun, left the two in the back of the vehicle while she gathered details about the young woman from the complainant.


So in other words a genius cop then? Excuse me while I find a bucket...

That doesn't sound good, the jury should give her double the award. I hope they got rid of the cops involved.

Consider rape right up there with murder, and I would be asking for 5 million in compensation. Just pure evil. Would also take everyone involved in the process that cleared the police officer of wrongdoing, for 5 million a piece as well. Every name in that process would be sued, to ensure they're bankrupt and lose everything.

The constable was suspended and later resigned, CBC reported. An internal investigation by the KRPF cleared her of any criminal wrongdoing.

really being sued is not enough of punishment....maybe if the cops involved lost their retirement funds or something that may suffice....no not even that....what a disgrace...maybe the cops involved should be locked in a room with the girls parents and let them choose a suitable punishment.....

what a mess

Pretty disgusting, but then cops will be cops. One thing to add, according to the law she was not a woman, she was a child. So actually it's even worse, the cop was instrumental in and facilitated the rape of a child.

Considering I've been though it more times than I care to count, number one, thank you. Number two, I cannot star and agree with this enough!!!!

The article actually states the officer was suspended pending investigation and resigned. A criminal investigation was done and the officer was clear of CRIMINAL wrongdoing. There is a huge difference between clearly making a terrible mistake and CRIMINAL wrongdoing.

This brand new officer, not even qualified to carry a gun, was alone on duty in this very small village. RCMP in these locations have a brutal job with no support. They are dropped in there and want out as soon as possible. They often don't know the locals and their histories when they first arrive. In fact they rely on the locals and elders to protect them all the time.

I think before a crucifixion takes place some context needs to be considered. It is good that the case will go before the court and a judge can review everything. Police investigations of themselves tend to be a little biased.

No doubt it's not an easy gig..to say the least. It stinks to high heaven though, it was a whole bunch of very bad mistakes..the officer was female too I believe.

I don't consider her clear of criminal responsibility. This goes a little further than a mistake. What is the difference between an accident and negligence, something that is within prevention by taking normal actions, something that involves risking someone unnecessarily and was preventable. I believe the category for gross negligence is criminal.

I wouldn't throw her in close proximity to suspected sexual offender. Most people are expected to know better, yet a police officer didn't?

Oh, I'm not finished yet. Poor woman resigned, made a teensy wheensy little mistake that no one would ever make with their own child or anyone else's, or even their worst enemy for that matter.

And after she discovered the rape taking place, the girl, was thrown in jail, with bodily harm, no medical attention given, no rape kit, nothing!

But that was just another mistake eh?

There is a contract the state has with the people, that gives the people protection and also justice. Now, vigilanties are treated as criminals. However, legally, if the contract is misused and made null and void by the government I have always failed to see why the people don't hold their own courts, because it would be legal, if the government does not uphold its end of that contract, its null and void.

I have understood since learning that in school.

So why the police ever betray their direct employer and salary giver, the people, by obscene corrupt decisions is beyond me, they should be bending over backwards because they are violating their own right to a salary , for the contract with the people is null and void.

I do not for one moment believe that this woman did this accidentally. She threw a young woman, child, who she decided was drunk in to a rapist as a ritual sacrifice, because she is a satanist, as are many of them, maybe 30% of them or more.

Pish, tush! She was a drunk Inuit. So it doesn't matter, since she isn't really a person. And the LEO can't be held responsible...she probably asked for it. And if she hadn't committed a crime, she wouldn't have been IN the van to be raped - it's really her fault, not the LEO's.

Case closed! Any more questioning of the event, and your hands will be Literally Dripping With Blood, as is anyone's who questions the actions of LEOs.

You could not make this story up
that police station needs a little demo outside and some very bad publicity

Alllllllrighty then! I thought you were just upset about the story but you're beliefs go WAY beyond that. You have any proof whatsoever it was a 'ritual sacrifice' ???

So here's more:


Police had been called to remove the woman, who had been drinking while visiting relatives, from the premises at the request of the homeowner.

According to civil lawsuit documents filed at Quebec Superior Court last fall and initially obtained by La Presse, the woman was handcuffed and put in the back of a police car with a man who had been arrested earlier for causing a disturbance at another residence.

***
According to the court documents, the officer returned and found Kritik with his pants down on top of the woman. The young woman testified in court that she was sexually assaulted.

“The plaintiff was unable to defend herself, being handcuffed in her back and unable to leave the vehicle, the doors being locked,” the lawsuit claims.

The officer opened the door and pulled Kritik off her.

Both the young woman and Kritik were taken to the police station and put in different cells.

The lawsuit claims the same officer, the only one on duty at the time, slammed the cell door in the woman’s face, breaking her tooth. No rape kit was performed and the woman’s parents were not contacted.

Kritik eventually pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault and was sentenced to 39 months.

The constable was suspended and later resigned. However, an internal investigation by the Kativik regional police Force cleared her of any criminal wrongdoing.

www.cbc.ca...


My only questions is why has it taken so long to take this case to court? Actually not. Why wasn't the rapist handcuffed?

If I take a bunch of kids to a baseball game and one of them gets injured or hurt by my neglect by not stopping the casue of harm and then I don't take them to hospital to get treatment, I can be (and most likely would be) criminally charged. Once the police have custody of you and you are legally kidnapped, they are responsible for your safety and well being.

The state didn´t rape her.




Would also take everyone involved in the process that cleared the police officer of wrongdoing, for 5 million a piece as well. Every name in that process would be sued, to ensure they're bankrupt and lose everything.


If she is awarded money it will not come from the pockets of anyone involved but it will be at the tax payer´s expense.

i have to agree with you, there is an awful lot we don't know about this case. up north things are far different than most of us are used to. in northern Quebec and northern Ontario i have seen "towns" that were nothing more than a small variety store, not even a gas station on a dirt road. it is a rather lonely place up there where one can buy things like beer cheap, yet things like milk are extremely expensive if available at all. where fresh food means you either hunted it or grew it yourself. most other available foodstuffs come dry or in a can, where a store might get one or two deliveries a year. where if you have electricity it normally means you have your own generator to provide it, otherwise oil lamps and wood stoves rule the day. in fact even if the cop knew who her parents were there is a strong possibility that there may have been no way to contact them. they might not live in the town, and if not chances are they would have no phone to call, possibly even no road to where they were. many natives still live in the wilds sometimes even in what are basically tent cabins (i have seen them). again we are given no information about this.

first and foremost did this rookie even know that the guy was a sex offender? we are not talking about an area most of us are familiar with where police vehicles all have computers that an officer could look information up on a subject, even if he did give his real name. up in the North they are lucky to have internet even at the station (heck just an hour outside of Toronto you can have a hard time getting internet, not enough people to make it worthwhile for a provider to bother). so chances are the guy was picked up for something else (we are not told why he was picked up), that had nothing to do with sexual offences. the fact he had no handcuffs on speaks loudly that he was not considered a threat. yet the fact the girl had them and had to be taken away at the request of a homeowner (it seems relatives of the girl) would indicate she was being unruly. i wonder if the cop only had one pair of handcuffs to use, as seems likely for up there. and if that is the case they would be used on the one who needs them most.

there is also a lot of talk about no medical attention or rape kit. but again we don't even know if there was a doctor forget about a hospital or even a rape kit in the area. the town as of 2011 has a population of 303. i had a friend who was a nurse up north for a year or so (and just like cops medical staff tend to be rookies who escape as soon as they can). medical help can be a very long way away, with medical emergency service consisting of aircraft that might take a few hours (during daytime only) to come airlift people out possibly to a city somewhere that has a hospital, or a doctor or more likely a nurse dealing with the issue on site to the best of their ability. getting hurt in the north is no joke. a camp i went to had a doctor on staff. he did not just treat campers and staff, but anyone who came and needed help like loggers injured on the job, since the next closest doctor was over a couple hours away by bush plane (which is why they had a big tank of avgas just in case it was needed, heck most campers and staff were flown into and out of camp via bush planes) or a few hours by powerboat even longer by truck. on trips we knew that if anything were to happen we would have to fix the injured up as best we could and send them with the best canoeists who would then push the limits to get them to where they could get help or at least a radio or phone to call help in. we also knew that doing so could take more than a few days. not a lot of people in the north and fewer doctors.

it seems mistakes were made, and even things like procedures may need to be changed, but it would seem there was nothing criminal involved on behalf of the police in this case.

According to the article, the rookie just arrested her from a party at a family members house. While the rookie was inside getting info, the rapist was outside in the van raping her. How about, instead of taking her to the cell, if you're not familiar with the area, tell a family member inside what just happened so THEY can contact her family! They might be familiar with the area. THEY can get a doctor for you to meet you at the station. It doesn't take many cells to use your brain. Or at the very least, contact an airplane to take her to a hospital in the AM. To me, it was still criminal to ignore the issue.
