he had all the excuses to be what he became.
What a shame.
A pity someone as sweet and kind and so much potential was lured away.
All his charm.
I can't believe it."
"It can't happen."
"He confessed Jesus as his savior."
"Yes, he gave his time to the Food Bank, he visited the sick."
"He had no money of his own."
"I just don't understand how he lived this kind of life.
Hidden from all who thought we knew him."
"We didn't know him at all."
"It was true.
He did wonderful things for people and his greatest attribute?
To love others unconditionally.
He made every smile or laugh and the room lit up when he entered.
The life of the party, always, said of him."
"Everyone loved him."
"For now I shall refer to him as, him."
(The Coutroom. First witness)
"Well, Your Honor,
it all began in childhood,
so he said, a victim.
It ended with the computer.
The computer wasn't his,
since it was available,
by night and no one was there to mind,
he used it. ...
And, then his troubles escalated.
Yes, he had all the victim excuses in the world.
You can name any childhood trauma,
and all of them happened to him.
because I grew up with him."
"Sadly, the devil told him, 'no one will know'.
Here it is. Use it.
So, that's what he did."
"He used a computer site, a place for certain people.
He found them. One by one. He went to meet them.
Sometimes it would be three or four in the morning when he left
and he would come home two or three days later."
"You knew all along!" She SCREAMED out.
"No more outburst or you will be found in contempt of court!"
"Did you know? "
(First witness and friend )
"Yes, I tried to warn him.
I tried telling him of God's love.
Then, after that wasn't working,
I became disgusted.
He didn't stop...
I told him I will answer for his despicable behaviors.
God will hold me accountable for not telling him the truth.
I told him in love...
But, he never heard.
He didn't want to hear.
So, I said, We'll pray together.
We'll ask for God's help.
He said, "Ok,"
but he continued.
I tried, I promise, I tried."
"So, you knew?
And you tried, so hard?"
He laughed and spoke sarcastically
Ha Ha Ha!"
"You realize his fate, do you not?"
I move to declare the accused be charged and sentenced at this time!"
He looks at the accused,
HA HA HA...!
Then, his horns extended;
he continued laughing.
There is another witness..."
"Bailiff, call the next witness."
The bailiff escorts the next witness.
He swears in,
takes the wooden seat.
(Attorney for the Defendant)
"Please give the jurors your expert testimony.
Why should he, pointing to the defendant, be set free?"
The eyes of love radiated as he looked at every juror.
Then, He said,
"Because I died for him."
"In the court room no one uttered a single word."
may I submit the Evidence?"
"Yes, show us the evidence."
"Bring it in."
"The bailiffs roll into the room for all to see,
The prosecutor turns on the projector.
The large screen lowers from the ceiling.
His movie of his life played for all.
The evenings spent on the computer and all his words written in black and white.
The hours visiting "those kind of places,"
and doing 'those kind" of things.'"
"The Defendant made no eye contact..."
"Not even his mother could persuade the evidence."
After hearing the testimonies and seeing all the evidence
"Son, sins die hard.
What do you have to sayf?"
"I know YOU died for me.
PLEASE, save me.
I've quoted scriptures in your name.
I will change!
"Jury, what is your decision?
Guilty or not?"
"The Tabloids read:
The Verdict Hung!
One praying grand-mother
challenged The Devil today."
"Take this dear child?
A sinner yes...
washes ALL sins away!"
