I wasn't personally familiar with Aaron, but from what I've read of him, I really don't think he was the type of person who would want everyone to go on a witch hunt the day it's announced he's committed suicide.

So how about you save your emotionally charged call for an internet brigade until everything has settled down, yes?




That may be true, that may not be true. I don't know.

What I do know is that the issue is larger than Aaron himself.

If it's larger than Aaron, then people shouldn't be using his death as the core reason for their crusade.

Absolute rubbish. Why should we not use individuals as catalysts for greater change? Doing so has a long, successful, and proud history in this country. Hell, it predates the country.

You shouldn't do it the day after he died. You should mourn him and let his loved ones mourn him.

And what part of forcing a single attorney out of her job is "greater change"? What part of that is being "proud"?

Hey guys! You might be effective if you do this now, so don't do it! Wait for no one to care before you start trying!
