Where do people go when the whistle blows?

Whistle-blowing is an interesting occupation. Whistle-blowers usually always get a bad name. They’re seen as trouble-makers; people who upset how things are done; nut jobs who threaten the status quo sometimes unnecessarily; ambitious, resentful and striving shit-disturbers who make life difficult and sometimes impossible for the smooth-running machine.

But after the dust settles and people see the atrocities that have been executed against the innocent and unsuspecting, they sometimes become our dark heroes. Many of them have to go into hiding themselves because of the threats against them.

My question is: Where do the alleged accused go? Suddenly, those who used to be the loudest are immediately silent, abruptly gone, and unexpectedly hidden.

Now is the time to come forth, to be honest, to confess, to repent, apologize and make amends.

  1. It is the innocent children that have no voice. When children whistle blow they are pitting one parent against the other. What a painful situation to put children into:
    Love this

    What I need from my mom and dad: A child’s list of wants
    I need both of you to stay involved in my life. Please write letters, make phone calls, and ask me lots of questions. When you don’t stay involved, I feel like I’m not important and that you don’t really love me.
    Please stop fighting and work hard to get along with each other. Try to agree on matters related to me. When you fight about me, I think that I did something wrong and I feel guilty.
    I want to love you both and enjoy the time that I spend with each of you. Please support me and the time that I spend with each of you. If you act jealous or upset, I feel like I need to take sides and love one parent more than the other.
    Please communicate directly with my other parent so that I don’t have to send messages back and forth.
    When talking about my other parent, please say only nice things, or don’t say anything at all. When you say mean, unkind things about my other parent, I feel like you are expecting me to take your side.
    Please remember that I want both of you to be a part of my life. I count on my mom and dad to raise me, to teach me what is important, and to help me when I have problems.

    You keep posting the same things on blogs, including over at The Wartburg Watch.

    Let’s go over the facts. These children and this ex-wife were victimized by a selfish husband/father. He left his wife with their young children so he could go have an affair with another woman. He left his entire little family that was dependent on him for some other woman. It’s despicable!

    Not even in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous would they put up with your jive story and ‘pity party’ story. Somebody who behaves that way is REQUIRED to make a full and complete amends.

    Quit enabling Tony. Quit enabling Courtney. Quit enabling Brian McLaren.
