Federal Police deemed ‘ugly’

By ExFeds 23 October 2011 26

A POLICEMAN who claimed he was left an emotional mess after an internal email suggested he was “ugly” has lost his compensation bid.

Australian Federal Police officer Stephen “Marto” Martin said he was so distressed by a group email linking it to a news article, titled “ugly men make more sperm during sex, study suggests“.

The story, which suggested that women wanting to get pregnant should find themselves an ugly man, was sent to the married officer and 15 colleagues.

Martin said he was gripped by “panic attacks, sleeplessness and tearfulness” after receiving the email, a tribunal was told.

What does this say about our police force?

Please don’t asimilate state police with the village idiots

Ohh good ole ExFeds still carrying a gripe towards the AFP, is it because you didn’t get enough hugs and kisses, or did someone send you a mean email?

G’Day Buzz, how are you? Nice of you to remember me. I was only highlighting the way members are treated not ‘gripe’ towards the AFP 🙂

After reading the AAT buzz again, I am thinking this member may have been outed for knowing / sharing something he shouldn’t have?

practical joke played on him in December 2008 by workmates who advertised his jet-ski for sale on the internet without his knowledge. The advertisement included his name and telephone number, and led to numerous phone calls from members of the public.

Ummmm… I really, seriously, would rather not have this played out on me….

Yes, I’m probably a princess – ugly one at that.

So, I’m assuming you don’t find this act of revenge funny?

No sense of humour some people.

According to the report, he does not deny sending “bad taste” e-mails himself or being involved in several practical jokes on workmates. I think he hasn’t learnt the lesson, don’t dish out what you can’t take yourself.

Agreed. Practical jokes make a workplace fun… nonetheless, all it takes is one spoilsport for everyone to lose their jobs for bullying or harassment.

Cops are all rough and tough, but I reckon lots of them crawl up into a ball in the shower, and cry while they rock back and forth…
