    Don't ever follow our system America. I will repeat this over and over. Surprisingly, not covered by state run CBC News...the rats.

    RIP Krista, you fought the good fight. There are others like myself willing to pick up the mantel, these cowards wouldn't dare look me in the eye. The most vile, covert, predatory system of abusive police in the West.

    This is one of many who have committed suicide, there was a guy just a few years ago who very publicly talked about the abuses and was in tears that they wouldn't leave him be until after a brief battle with these cowards he committed suicide.

    You have an entire agency that squeezes it's citizens and makes life unbearable for them. Fooking cowardly bast.ards.


    'End of watch': Former RCMP officer who fought harassment dies by suicide in B.C.

    A woman who left the RCMP after fighting against sexual harassment and bullying in the service has died.

    Friends have confirmed to CTV Vancouver that Krista Carle died by suicide on Friday. She was 53.

    Her Twitter profile, last updated in March, described her as a “retired RCMP officer, farmer, mom and wife.”

    Carle was among several women who went public in 2011 about their treatment by superiors in the RCMP. She was also outspoken about the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, which forced her to leave the RCMP on a medical discharge after 19 years of service. She said she lost everything to PTSD, including her marriage and career, after experiencing dozens of instances of harassment.

    Carle was part of a graduating class of the RCMP that included Catherine Galliford, a former RCMP spokesperson in B.C. who first came forward about sexual harassment, and Janet Merlo, who was the lead plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit about harassment and abuse of women within the RCMP. The federal government settled that suit in 2016 for $100 million.

    At the time, Bob Paulson, then commissioner of the RCMP, delivered an apology to current and former female officers and employees who were subjected to discrimination and harassment.

    At that time, Carle told the Globe and Mail that she had spoken to numerous women grappling with harassment, some of whom were fighting suicidal thoughts. “It’s like being on the Titanic and people are in the water saying, ‘Please throw me a life ring. I’m drowning.’ You try to help as many people as you can, but there are so many of them. And some of them aren’t going to make it.”

    Merlo wrote on Facebook on Saturday: “End of watch for my beautiful friend. I totally understand when you get to the point where you just can’t do one more day. Rest easy, I am so blessed to have been on such a journey with you. My heart is broken. We will carry your torch and never let anyone forget that your life meant so much to so many. Till we meet again troopmate. 27 strong.”

    Actually it's the top story on CBC News Investigates.
    And posted a day earlier than your link was.

    Yeah someone just made me aware of this. I couldn't find it, and as they haven't even given it a small headline I assumed they were avoiding it.

    CTV and CP24 gave it TV coverage, none so far from CBC News Network

    Maybe because it's yesterday's news?

    Weak people should not be in law enforcement or military. Someone put pornography in her files. Big schmutz. You shut up about it. One of her coworkers had a picture of a stripper. This is nonsense.

    Women who are that fragile don't belong.

    How the hell do you know what she's been through? How about the cowards who abuse her should try it to a man? Even in my advanced age, I would roll the dice against these wimps, especially those in Ontario. She lost her career, her marriage among other things.

    I'd be more than happy to step in for these women taking abuse, alas, the weak cowards of the Canadian apparatus hide. Little weak wristed covert officers, Mommas boy who would get their asses handed to him where I grew up.

    This is why Canadian police are said to be the first to join the police last to join the military. Just as they do in Russia, they push people to the edge of despair until they take their own lives.

    Cowards. Each and every one of them who abuse someone like this. I hope there is a special place in hell for these pond scum.
