I stand in awe as many people seem to revel in trying to bring down another human being. Where is our collective Wisdom and Compassion when dealing with such complex and sensitive matters? Let he/she who is without sin cast the first stone! The Bo Lozoff that I know is a man who has given his life to helping others. I have known about his work for 22 years, and have know him for over 7 years. I visited Kindness House 3 times(2001, 2002, 2004) for weeks at a time and never once witnessed anything like what this article depicts. I helped him when he was last touring CA. and got to see him in action in San Quentin and the SF County jails. He was truly inspiring and the feeling in those harsh places was one of incredible Love and Goodwill. I really feel that he brought the best to these dark places that human beings have to give. This is the Bo Lozoff that I know. This is not an attempt to excuse any of Bo's mistakes, but simply to round out a picture that has become increasingly skewed. Bo is not an abusive predator, but a human being with his own strengths and weaknesses. Let us not stoop to demonizing. May we all respond with greater Wisdom and Compassion.
