"And about the "big settlement", I guess the reason I'm silent is because (a) it was Reinhard's action, and he tends to be silent about a lot of things; (b) it is Joe's parents, and he has already made a statement; and (c) it wasn't a big settlement."
Well, Dave, you are not being silent at all!!!
Now I'm wondering, Dave, why you are still persisting with posting page after page of the court depositions, when the matter has been settled for those who you name as the persons involved, ie Reinhard and by family association, Joe? Joe has made his posting about the matter. As you say, he's made his statement.
You state that Reinhard tends to be silent about a lot of things. Ross said in a post which you edited that he has withdrawn from posting or from associating socially with the JC's. The inference was made that this is because of brain damage he sustained. Now when a person sustains brain damage to the extent that they can no longer speak for themselves, sometimes a person is appointed as their power of attorney. Is that you?
Has Reinhard sanctioned you continuing to post these extracts from the deposition now that the case has been settled? Does he want to persist with the matter they way you clearly do?
Otherwise, why do you continue to post pages of the court depositions on your site? What are you hoping to achieve? I think anyone who has followed this sorry and tragic saga has formed a picture of what happened. I have made my own statement about this and how I was appalled at the beating.
So, Dave, just exactly what are you trying to achieve? You've had your whipping trial (which was supposed to be about forgiveness??? I remain baffled by this), the parties involved have their settlement which you say does not involve you. Is it some kind of guilt you feel about what happened to Reinhard, that you are so keen for everyone to see how "evil" the attack was?
Jesus said "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." Where are you at with all this right now?
Just exactly what is it that you want now?If
the purpose now is merely posturing before your own community about how unrepentant the Johnson's testimonies are, to make yourself look good and righteous, then that would to me be a serious abuse of Reinhard's suffering.
You may just have to get to the point where you accept that sometimes people who do wrong cannot be browbeaten into repentance, no matter who you whip or what you post.
