This may seem to be a harsh subject, but we have repeatedly heard how shunned JW's, of all ages, have committed suicide. They succumbed to the harsh treatment brought on them by the Watchtower Society and in turn their families and so-called friends.
Is it possible that the 'harsh treatment' the Australian Royal Commission will met out to Mr. Jackson, by the relentless, probing questions, that he consider suicide? Perhaps losing face under the onslaught of merciless questioning, bringing that which is hidden into the light. It may be more than he can endure. He may be a weak and insecure man under the trappings of his Governing Body persona.
