As with the above post in the "scandals" section, I have wondered for some years if the Watchtower could be forced to get rid of Circuit
The problem is that these itinerant Enforcers are a direct link in liability to Watchtower Headquarters, as a hierarchy is. Whatever they do,
or ignore, or whomever they hit with their cars - can lead to the Society's "deep pockets". While the Catholic Church has tons of cash to
cover such disasters, I doubt that the Society can sustain such damage.
Nor are lawsuits the only problem. These guys could drain medical/pension expenses from the Society as well, depending on what the
Watchtower is forced to support them with, as hirelings.
I think that the German branch wanted to experiment with younger brothers - from the MTS school to try and keep congregations in line
but that didn't work out.
Perhaps part time C.O's/elders would be cheaper and safer for the money grubbing Theocrats to work with.
