Female friend, past co-worker

I have found this entire process deeply sad and shocking. I know Steve to be a kind, thoughtful, deeply caring and conscious person that is constantly striving to create a better world. I also know that he is a complex character with some deep traumas and can believe that much of what is written in the testimonials are things he did. However I don’t think he did them out of malice or an intent to cause harm. I don’t think trying to destroy his life is the right way to go about things. I truly hope that there can be a new and better way for this to be resolved where everyone involved feels at peace.
