Facing a painful cross-examination, a 9-year-old boy who alleges a former school aide sexually abused him stood up and screamed at the defense attorney
'Shut up! And stop being a bully, now!' the boy shouted at defense attorney David Segal. 'Stop it!'

I am so in awe of this 9-year-old boy...particularly being, as he correctly put it, bullied by defense atty Segal. In addition to the abuse, it must feel to him like he's now being punished for speaking out.

That's what I got out of it, based somewhat on my experience. The similarity I latched on to was being raised in an abusive home environment and, in desperation, sharing it with a high school guidance counselor who'd then sexually abuse me for the next year. I felt like I was being punished for daring to speak up. (And that pretty much killed my soul).

Anyone else?
