Scientology holding "patients" against their will

Post by Anaxagoras » Fri May 05, 2017 11:20 pm

I hope they don't just treat this as an isolated case. They should prosecute the whole leadership of Scientology (under RICO SUAVE!!!1!!) not just the individuals at the site.

Scientology facilities in Tennessee closed after police find patients held against their will
A group of psychiatric facilities owned and run by the Church of Scientology in Tennessee has been closed after local police found some patients being held against their will.

The Cannon Courier, out of Cannon County, Tenn. and nearby the Scientology facilities, reports that the buildings are now permanently closed and three suspects have been charged.

“[We] would like to make the general public of [the] county aware that the Scientology facilities are closed and [no longer] operating,” read a statement released by the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department.

Police discovered the facilities, which were no more than tiny cabins and one double-wide trailer, concealed in the wilderness and heavily secured. They described the scene as “a gated, makeshift paddock secured externally with a steel latch.”

The authorities found out about the cabins when a man inside managed to call 911, and when police arrived the man was “looking out through a Plexiglas window.”

The unidentified man told police that he had been held in the facility against his will for nine months, and had been treated with unknown medications. According to officers who witnessed the scene, it was impossible for the man to leave the cabin, and all he was provided was a single bed with a single sheet and a tiny bathroom, which was the “only room with a light.”

After assessing the scene, the man was taken to an emergency room at a local hospital for care. When police later returned to the cabin and trailer armed with a search warrant, they discovered people hastily packing up and moving out all contents of the facilities.

The front gate’s large locking mechanism was also removed. Later on, when the police searched another reported Scientology location, they discovered yet another “patient,” this time a female. She too was transported to a local hospital and her family notified.

Well-known Scientology reporter Tony Ortega has been sounding the horn on these covert facilities for some time, citing examples of other people who have allegedly been held against their will — including severely mentally ill Scientologists — and who’ve suffered mental breakdowns in similar rural Tennessee facilities.

The charged suspects are Dennis Flamond and Hans Snyder Lytle, who both pleaded guilty to two counts of false imprisonment, and Marc Vallieres, who was charged with two felonies of facilitation to kidnapping.

I am not sure they should call those "psychiatric institutes."

Because . . . they are . . . wackaloons?

P.S. That applies to the victims and lower-level fools who believe in this stupidity. It is a form of control for the leaders.

Yeah, I'm not sure exactly, but it's a cult so normal rules of logic may not apply. As Doc says though, probably to maintain control. To what extent they actually "believe" in what they are doing I'm not sure.

Recent lawsuit against Scientology:

Scientology accused of abuse, human trafficking in lawsuit
LOS ANGELES — A former Scientologist has filed the first of what her attorneys say will be multiple lawsuits against the Church of Scientology International and its leader, alleging retaliation, child abuse, human trafficking and forced labor against her and other members who have left the church.

The suit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, seeks unspecified general, special and compensatory damages, well as unpaid wages, from the church, its Religious Technology Center and its "ecclesiastical leader," David Miscavige, and 25 unnamed co-respondents at a jury trial.

Allegations in the lawsuit include libel, slander, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress and seek double or triple damages on claims the plaintiffs violated California labor and human trafficking laws.

The woman who filed the lawsuit, identified in court papers as "Jane Doe," said she was raised in the church from birth and at age 15 became a personal steward to Miscavige, whose formal title is chairman of the church's Religious Technology Center.

The church identifies Miscavige as the "ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion," which was started in 1952 by the science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Scientology asserts in its official statements of beliefs that man is an immortal spiritual being with unlimited capabilities, and it offers, for a price, one-on-one "auditing" and classes designed to help members achieve a "clear" spiritual state. It strongly opposes the science of psychiatry as "disastrous."

According to the suit, Jane Doe joined the Sea Organization, described as an association of the church's "most dedicated members," who sign 1 billion-year contracts with the quasi-naval group. The lawsuit says she moved to the church's Gold Base in San Jacinto, California, southeast of San Bernardino.

She remained there for 11 or 12 years until 2015, when she was removed as a steward and placed in an isolation program called "the Hole" because, according to the suit, she knew too much about what it describes as marital problems between Miscavige and his wife.

Banished to Los Angeles to work on church publicity, the woman escaped in late 2016 in the trunk of a car driven by a non-Scientologist actor with whom she was assigned to produce promotional videos, according to the complaint.
Whether this will work, who knows.
