Let Me See If I Have This Right:
1) She Filed A Harassment Lawsuit
2) The Borough Council approved $800,000.00 Settlement.
3) Belmar Does Not Acknowledge Any Wrongdoing
4)Winner "Forced" To Agree Never To Seek Employment
..-. With The City Again???.
5) SICK .-. SICK .-. SICK

Yea, once again another confusing town...Well lets see...1.)"Belmar doesn't have to acknowledge any wrongdoing"...But I guess by paying out a settlement of that amount...they more or less did. 2.) Why work there again anyway? They would make it miserable for her since no one has been reprimanded (and still lurks in the shadows of "Public Duty")....3.)$800,000 not bad...she's set for awhile...and 4.)...In my opinion...that wasn't a settlement...That was just a bribe to aid in a cover-up. So with that being said...I agree... sick sick sick.

Congrats, Kara! You stuck it out for four long years. The mayor, Boro Administrator, Chief and the rest of those corrupt cops thought you'd run away crying. They mistook your kindness for weakness. Huge mistake!!! They read you your miranda rights and threatened you with criminal charges. Anyone can see why you would be reluctant to come forward. You tried to transfer to another department and continue your career in peace and they wouldn't let you. They should be ashamed of themselves. You however should be proud of yourself and continue to live a long, happy stress-free life.
