Policeman Claims Trauma From Porn Email

Recommended Posts

Policeman Traumatised by Porn

Awarded Damages For 'Work-Related Injury'

Quote

A Rhineland policeman who claimed he suffered a mental breakdown after seeing a pornographic image emailed by his superior will have his medical costs paid by the state, media reported Thursday.

A Düsseldorf court had ruled that the man’s trauma from the image – ending in the breakdown of his marriage – could be regarded as work-related injury.

The police superintendent, 39, received an email from his chief commissioner. The attachment showed a Powerpoint presentation of a blonde reclining on a Ferrari. However when the officer clicked further, the slideshow moved on to woman’s genitalia infected with a skin rash, supposedly advanced venereal disease.

He was “seriously traumatized,” the court heard. Ultimately, the email caused the man “psychiatric illness, obsessive compulsive disorders and obsessive ideas.”

The state of North Rhine-Westphalia must in the wake of the court decision pay the man’s medical costs and costs associated with any long-term damage.

The policeman has already launched a second court challenge to win compensation from the state because the incident had also negatively affected his career.

Odd that a policeman should be so shocked by a picture of a vagina. After all its part of his job to deal with prostitutes. I seem to recall a similar case in the UK when a policeman claimed trauma from seeing dead bodies. The courts ruled that, since they are specifically called to deal with dead bodies, many of them naked, it was part of his job to see them. If he can claim trauma, then so can every doctor and nurse in the land. I find it hard to believe that a middle aged, married, hardened policeman would truly be shocked by a vagina, not even a vagina, just a picture of one.

Maybe the picture was of his missus?
