I am looking for any examples, preferably with independent news sources of any witnesses that have ever been:
- Shot at
or otherwise harmed while in field service. I live in an town that has a high crime rate and I have a beautiful young daughter who auxiliary pioneers. I can not stop her without risking my marriage, all my family, friendships and everything else. I do insist she works with at least 4 people in the car group. Two to each door and two to watch. She is also not allowed to ever go inside a householders home. If she does she will be in deep s**t. I can track where she is by her phone and I do check from time to time. Also she is not far from 18 where I would not be able to stop her either way.
I have not attended the hall for years. I have had a successful fade where I am still friends with everyone but they just don't expect me to go to the hall. I still will go to parties, to peoples homes for dinner etc but I just steer clear of scriptural topics. If they get into it I just walk away. Really it has not been too much of a problem at all. Everyone knows how I feel but they don't push it.
The thing is that I would like to be able to show her links to actual news stories of witnesses who have been harmed in field service to give her pause.
On the positive side she will definitely be attending college so I am hopeful that they will teach her critical thinking skills. Even then what she decides to do is up to her. If she want to stay "in" for social reasons I can't stop it. I just want to encourage her to get her "time" in by writing letters while sipping a latte at Starbucks (she does this sometimes) rather than go from door to door.
Please if you have any examples a link to the news story would be best. If you can't find a link please let me know the town, and year and persons name so I can look for it. I can not share info from this site without solid backup. I did that several years ago and it nearly cost me my marriage.
