I may have missed details but I don't think this is an accurate statement. The first report avoids naming names. The second report discusses the allegations against SMR, but still avoids naming names. The third report is where a decision is made to publicize the names of the people accused in some of the anonymous reports.
There are two approaches - one is Andrea Winn, and one is Carol Merchasin, Esq. Merchasin's reports are very good. She describes her methodology and evidence gathered, and explains the basis of her conclusions. These reports are focused on SMR.
Winn's approach is informal. In explaining her decision to name names, she offers a single explanation found on page 16 of the third report, "I believe the victims."
Fair? Would "fair" be a better word than "proper"?Whether this is "proper" or not, it is clearly a response to what appears to be pervasive and systematic shielding of elite Shambhalians from the consequences of their actions. It is clear they are trying to stimulate prosecutorial interest in these cases.
I'm not sure if Wynn's intent is to get prosecutors to investigate. Nominally she continues to maintain that her purpose is to get the community reformed.
I'm not trying to defend Shambhala or anything like that. Reading these reports - its f'ing creepy. Not just the sexual abuse allegations, but the glimpse inside the organizational psychology. Its gross. It quacks like a cult.
That said, I am sensitive to the effect that uncorroborated accusations can have - once they're out, that's it. A minimum of investigation would make me a whole lot more comfortable here - was the accuser and PC in the same place at the same time when these alleged interactions took place? A little more than, "I believe them."
I really don't have any particular interest in any of this. I guess I jumped into the thread to respond to the hints of hysteria here. Which is probably a losing proposition given how rotten the underlying situation is. Its like complaining about the color of the carpet while the house is burning down.
