RCMP Female Mobbing victims win $100,000,000 after sexual assaults, “suicide pool”
“Last week, while this column was speaking to how RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson’s tearful apology didn’t cut it to women on his force who have been sexually assaulted and abused by their male peers, RCMP Staff-Sgt. Caroline O’Farrell revealed her abuse was so traumatic that she was the subject of a suicide pool by fellow members of the Musical Ride.”
“O’Farrell is suing the force separately, and is not part of the two class-action suits by scores of female RCMP officers and civilians that were settled last week with Paulson’s apology and at least a $100-million payout in taxpayers’ money to the offended women.”
“In her statement of claim, O’Farrell talks about many incidents of “s–t troughing” when she was with the Musical Ride, and where she was soaked in cold water and dragged face down through the horse dung and urine in the paddock’s stalls.
The abuse reached such dimension that her co-workers launched a suicide pool, and took bets on when she would kill herself.
An internal investigation, in fact, substantiated more than 120 of O’Farrell’s claims but none of her abusers was turfed or overtly disciplined.
Instead, O’Farrell’s superiors transferred her out of the Musical Ride for her own safety.”
