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 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.

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.

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?

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.
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.

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.
