Many people are treated badly by officials working for the government or big business, and choose to swallow the indignity and accept it. But how can we teach our children not to accept bullying when we don't fight back ourselves? What happens if you are mistreated by someone representing the government or big business? "The system" doesn't violate people: PEOPLE violate people. How do we hold individuals accountable that hurt us then hide behind the anonymity of a company, an organization, or a powerful group? Two individuals share their stories of courage to be the David that faces Goliath, one man who must fight back against a judge that chooses not to rule against misbehaving police officers and one women who must fight back against a major corporation that chooses not to take financial responsibilty for an accident. How do we stand up against the adult bullies in our lives? How do we get justice when financial interests seek to dismiss our demands? How do we publicly embarrass wrongdoers into doing right?
