There's got to be more to this story than summarized in the complaint. I know blackmail (or retalialtive coercion) may have been far from her sensitive husband's normal menu of responses to the alleged abuse of power. But mot being one of NYC's finest it's certainly an option I'd explore before choosing suicide. To say her husband would rather die than have sex with his female supervisor sounds like a survivor's version of the event.
What a bizarre and wholly unfounded charge. No one commits suicide due to a superior's sexual harassment. No one. Sounds to me like this woman's looking for both a scape goat and a pot of gold. Ridiculous.
Something about the story doesn't quite add up. It first states the supervisor demanded sex. However, later it states the supervisor admitted to an affair - with 'affair' implying CONSENTING adults. I don't know. I'd think being a police officer would require some type of mental/emotional toughness. (After all, they have to pass written and oral psychological examinations!) And he can't handle the advances of his female supervisor? And his only viable option is to kill himself? It just seems like a VERY extreme reaction. And the fact he killed himself the day before Valentine's Day? Coincidence? I have a hard time believing it. I agree, there's got to be more to the story than what's been reported.
