In a breaking news story out of norther Quebec, a young Indigenous woman from an Inuit village has filed suit against the police after she was left handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser where she was then raped.
The woman, who was 17-years-old when the incident took place, is suing for $400,000. The suit explains that she was knowingly left in the back of the vehicle with a repeat sexual offender, Joe Kritik, who then sexually assaulted her.
Unlike the woman who was assaulted, Kritik was not restrained or handcuffed in any way. The police knew this when they left him alone with the woman who was subsequently assaulted by Kritik.
“The plaintiff was unable to defend herself, being handcuffed in her back and unable to leave the vehicle, the doors being locked,” the suit alleges.
Just another case of the police serving and protecting us.
