Yes, sir. You deserve the moment you have described and rest assured, many of us have the same thoughts. I even tried to file charges against one of the guys who had me, but the follow-up and interest on the part of law enforcement was limited. So I did get to the point where I WANTED to sit in the courtroom opposite the man, but I didn't know how to make that happen.
This is what maybe I recommend. Hell, I don't maybe recommend it, I do for certain. Be patient. Follow your instincts. Follow your leads. Make your contacts. You'll get your answers. When you do have the privilege of sitting in the courtroom and seeing this guy held accountable for his behavior, at that point when he begins to scan the people and he glances back and locks into your eyes, he WILL KNOW YOU have emerged victor. Man, what an image that is! And as you look eye to eye, Eric, let it be remembered that there are thousands of us who are with you. Thousands who want and need justice, and that justice was denied. (sounds like I am at a rally).
You go guy!!
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
