How did the reprehensible abuse in the Catholic Church finally get addressed & exposed. By lawsuits! Regardless of what the big dogs @ AA rap, they are legally responsible for what goes on in those rooms & for what any & all members do! The Catholic Church claims the disgraced, pedophile & reprehensible abusing priest's are not the entire face of the church, that's cool, however the church is still legally & financially responsible for said Priest's behavior. If a deacon or just a church member sexually abused another church member, the church would still be liable. If one fall's on someone's property or steps, etc., the property owner is responsible. It is easy for AA to stone wall & rap their double speak to a lone member who communicates their abusive & dangerous episode's to the AA big doggies. Get those same AA big dogs in a room for a deposition, in a court room with a judge & lawyers & watch how the AA stone walling gets taken apart. Additionally, one should consider along with suing AA, also suing the member who commits the abuse, the damages, etc. Also included in a suit, could be the church's & facilities who rent rooms to AA & of course the club houses. Start suing AA for their assets, the properties they own, the wealth accumulated. AA has I believe 90 paid employee's, they are responsible for not responding appropriately to complaints of criminal & abusive behaviors & actions of members. The paid employee's & also every voluntary member represents AA. All complaints should be in writing & sent via certified mail, document, document, document. All incidents should be documented in writing by the victims. All incidents should be documented with a Police force. Also prosecute via criminal court, then sue civilly both the organization & the individual. It will be every abuser for himself. Additionally, any & every thing in writing is documentation for any & all suits. The more a stepper puts in writing their convoluted & twisted stone walling & denying, the more documentation exists to submit to a court! The way to solve the damages & harm that AA cause's so many individuals, families & society @ large is to tap into their deep pockets, make them pay for being grossly negligent & for allowing abuse to occur & prevail.
