Unfortunately, the risk of undermining general respect for the law, and for authority, in our society will be stoked by such passions.
When that respect is diminished, respect for standards of behavior gets reduced as well. This is true, whether the standards are "set" by generally-shared cultural norms or by state law.
The shame and missed opportunity is that the general topics of abuse of power in the workplace, and of outrageously abusive behavior in general across society, will be ignored.
Perhaps that's because there are too many other people who are benefiting from those abuses.
Who will speak for their victims?
