I deeply appreciate Trey's work. He is dedicated and genuinely wants to expose abuse of power. I've been following his work since his first article on this issue. Thank you for caring.
OrphanCrow, your comment about Barbara is so true.

I first learned about Barbara in a Dateline Documentary. I thought she was very brave. I still do. It was so incredible. I thought more would be done to stop the abuse but nothing significant happened. The media's interest faded.
One day I saw a demonstration outside Bethel on TV, and that's when I learned about the organization Silent Lambs and all those victims of abuse who were violated by other witnesses. It was so surreal. I kept thinking how could there be so many victims? I felt powerless. I didn't know so many people were suffering / had suffered horrible acts by fellow witnesses. It hurt so much to see them ignored by the WT. No one wanted to talk about it. I couldn't understand why.
Now here it is that an investigative reporter has decided that the story must be told again and again to restore the balance of justice, dignity, and integrity. Thank you both so much.
