There two critical flaws in john’s approach.
First is the lack of any geuine care about the result. Tied up with that is john’s own inferiority complex.
you see john calls them cowards and seems to feel like a ‘big man’ because he mouthed off to them.. but if they are indeed the cowards he thinks them to be, why mouth off at all? One need not kick a puppy cowering a corner for protection.
If john really cared about results he could have casusually asked the dubs if they saw that Report he mentioned and built on it. If they say no he could have filled a few details, offered some sympathetic remarks about how awful child abuse is etc etc...
Instead he acted like a moron and demanded that somehow the witness be aware of something that HE thought they should be aware of , dispite already telling him they wernt aware, and acted like an ass when the dub didnt cowtow to his insane demand to look it up on the spot.
No regard for outcome, clearly knows witnesses wont be aggressive with him and takes advantage to help build his low self esteem.
Congrats john! *slow clap* you stood up to pacifists! Perhaps next time you could try taking some lollipops from toddlers. They have a firm grip and may provide more of a challenge.
