Scientologist Arrested

Well, there’s something you don’t see every day.  A police officer bringing some justice to Scientology after one of its members hit a masked Anon at a protest outside Big Blue in L.A..

Well, done.

Now is this some new masterplan to unmask all of Anonymous?  Scientologists get sent out to take a swing at every masked protester so they have to give their names to the law in order to press charges?

Only Davey Miscavige will be left at the end, unwilling to take a swing at someone not being held down by lackies.

    I have to watch this without sound because I am at work :-( But it looks like the scientidiot is trying to say he did not hit the anon guy, or simply pushed him. Whatever, they lie as a required religious activity. I certainly hope the arrest was legitimate and if so I commend that officer.
    Mark, I am thankful to God (The real God, not the fantasy one that requires payment to be saved) that you have the energy to keep going after these fruit cakes.
    How can we make your cause more well known? You just say the word and donations are coming your way.

  2. Erik Says:

    I sure hope the Anon hasn’t pressed any charges. That requires giving your name (at least it does here in the Netherlands). That way $cientology will make his life very unpleasant.

    Good call tho, they get the guy that deserves is for once.

    Yes, you have to give your name, date of birth, address, phone number, etc to the officer. The crime report is “public information”, however, it is the policy of virtually every law enforcement agency to NOT release personal information to those seeking a copy of the report. The agency I work for will make a photo copy of the report, black out all personal info, then make a photo copy of that. The person receiving a copy of the report will not be able to see any of the personal information.

    If a victim or witness of a crime is harassed IN ANY WAY as a result, the harasser can be charged with a crime (intimidating a witness or victim). That is a felony in the state of California and take very seriously by prosecutors. If any of the witnesses or victims in this case get harassed in any way, it is very important to call the police and have a report written. Make sure you get a report number from the officer. Immediately call the prosecutors office at the appropriate court house and notify them. If you do not know which court to contact, ask the officer at the scene.

    I have personally gotten criminals prosecuted for such actions, which just adds to their original charge. Most of the time, the judge will enhance whatever punishment may be forthcoming.

    So, whether you prosecute or not, your name still goes on the police report if you report the crime.

    I originally put this information together for Mark Bunker. If you protest, you may want to read this. I know much of this stuff may not work with Clearwater PD since some of them are in bed with $cientology, but there is some good info here. Those of you are are civil rights savvy, may or may not find this helpful.

    Here are some opinions and some advice based on my 18 years of law enforcement experience. Please note that any penal codes listed in this document are California penal codes and that the laws may vary from state to state. I hope some of this information helps shed a little light on the mindset of a police officer. I am sure there may be some unanswered questions. I would be happy to submit myself to any questions anyone has regarding a police officer’s mindset.

    First, some advice; know your rights as a citizen. Learn and understand your 1st amendment rights. Learn and know “citizen’s arrest” laws according to which state you are in. In most states, you as a citizen have limited powers of arrest. In California, if someone commits a misdemeanor or felony in your presence, you have the right to detain that person and place them under “private person(s) arrest.” Personally, I would not recommend trying to detain someone who has committed a crime. Most citizens are not trained in handling violent situations and more often than not, criminals will resist and/or fight you. You never know who has weapons and who doesn’t, so be careful! Remember, citizens generally do not have the tools to handle these situations. You would be better off keeping a visual on the perpetrator from a safe distance and point them out to police. Get a license plate number. Be sure you get a good physical description. Just try to be a good witness.

    As is common is law enforcement, some people who are arrested for a crime is quick to accuse the arresting officer of lying, and false arrest. Next thing you know, you are getting sued. It is their little way of attempting to get revenge or to try to escape prosecution. It happens all the time. Obviously, the Cult of Scientology has done this may times in the past.

    Whether you are acting alone or as an organizer, introducing yourself to the local law enforcement agency is important. One way to do this is to notify the local law enforcement agency of your intent to stage a protest well ahead (a minimum of one week) of the protest. They will appreciate it. Visit the law enforcement agency in person and speak only to the on-duty watch commander or unit commander. Advise the supervisor of the upcoming protest and supply them with a written plan (date, time, location, your goal) of the protest and be sure to include the approximate number of protestors to be expected. Most importantly, include a copy of the “Code of Conduct” that you are going to give to the protestors. Anyone organizing a protest without a “Code of Conduct” that the protestors are expected to follow could cause a problem for the organizer(s), especially if any civil litigation ensues. We all know that emotions can run high and sometimes there will be a few people who take it too far. Be sure to advise them of the past history of physical assaults by representatives and members of the Church of Scientology and that you expect the same problems during the upcoming protest. Don’t be afraid to answer any questions the law enforcement agency may have. Any hesitation may be viewed negatively. They may perceive you as “uncooperative” or “evasive” and that may be enough to lead to suspicion as to your intentions. Ask about local ordinances regarding protests or assemblies. Make sure you get the name and badge number from the supervisor you spoke to and also note the date and time.

    Now, there is a paper trail. This means that the law enforcement agency must take this seriously or risk bad press or worse. This will also allow the law enforcement agency to form a plan in some way should things turn ugly. Keep in mind that law enforcement would not necessarily be obligated to show up to keep the peace. Just remember that if law enforcement stages at the protest to keep the peace, they are generally expected to remain unbiased and impartial. Unfortunately, it is not always that way it goes. As long as you fully cooperate with local law enforcement, they will learn to trust you and may be more likely to cooperate with you, especially when you do future protests in their jurisdiction.

    If there is no law enforcement presence at the protest and there are problems, do not hesitate to call the police. Let them come out and deal with it. If the police handle the issue then leave, do not hesitate to call as many times as needed should further problems occur. If anything, the police will finally get a clue and they will eventually stick around. This will also be a clear signal that future protests will require their presence.

    With that said, be sure to have some of your associates who are not protesting, stay in the background and video tape the protest from as many angles as possible. Video footage can be your friend, but it is most important for law enforcement should a crime occur. I love video footage when I am dealing with criminal cases. It makes my job much easier and gives me more “ammo.” As you may already know, when it comes to civil litigation, that is not always the case. A well skilled lawyer without a conscience could easily turn things around on you.

    Common violations you may encounter during a protest are;

    242 PC-Battery (misdemeanor): A battery is any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another. (examples of this could be anything from slapping, punching or kicking, to throwing an object at you, or hitting you with an object not likely to produce great bodily injury. This could also include throwing objects at you such as rocks, bags or balloons filled with non-volatile liquid).

    23110(a) CVC (misdemeanor) Throwing objects at an occupied vehicle: Any person who throws any substance at a vehicle or any occupant thereof on a highway is guilty of a misdemeanor. (this could be a felony if the object was likely to produce great bodily injury)

    244 PC (felonly): Assault with caustic chemical: Any person who willfully and maliciously places or throws, or causes to be placed or thrown, upon the person of another, any vitriol, corrosive acid, flammable substance, or caustic chemical of any nature, with the intent to injure the flesh or disfigure the body
    of that person, is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison
    for two, three or four years. As used in this section, “flammable substance” means gasoline, petroleum products, or flammable liquids with a flashpoint of 150 degrees Fahrenheit or less.

    245(a)(1) PC-Assault with deadly weapon (felony): Any person who commits an assault upon the person of another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm or by any means of force likely to produce great bodily injury. (this could also include the use of just hands or feet if great bodily injury occurred.)

    422 PC-Terrorist threats (felony): Any person who willfully threatens to commit a crime which will result in death or great bodily injury to another person, with
    the specific intent that the statement, made verbally, in writing, or by means of an electronic communication device, is to be taken as a threat, even if there is no intent of actually carrying it out, which, on its face and under the circumstances in which it is made, is so unequivocal, unconditional, immediate, and specific as to convey to the person threatened, a gravity of purpose and an immediate prospect of execution of the threat, and thereby causes that person reasonably to be in sustained fear for his or her own safety or for his or her immediate family’s safety, shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison. For the purposes of this section, “immediate family” means any spouse, whether by marriage or not, parent, child, any person related by consanguinity or affinity within the second degree, or any other person who regularly resides in the household, or who, within the.

    594(a) PC-Vandalism (misdemeanor): Every person who maliciously commits any of the following
    acts with respect to any real or personal property not his or her own, in cases other than those specified by state law, is guilty of vandalism:
    (1) Defaces with graffiti or other inscribed material.
    (2) Damages.
    (3) Destroys.

    594(b)(1) PC-vandalism (felony): Same as 594(a) PC, except damage is over $400.

    Under 837 PC, A private person may arrest another:
    1. For any public offense committed or attempted in his presence.
    or
    2. When the person arrested has committed a felony, although not
    in his presence.
    or
    3. When a felony has been in fact committed, and he has reasonable
    cause for believing the person arrested to have committed it.

    837 PC generally does not include infractions, such as minor traffic violations.

    Be aware that anyone placing another under private persons arrest could be subject to civil liability in regards to false arrest, should the arrestee trump something up. Generally, a police officer would make sure that a crime was committed before taking someone into custody, however, the police officer has no civil liability in the event of a private persons arrest. This is why witnesses and video footage is so important. It should protect you against frivolous lawsuits. If there is in-fact enough probable cause to take someone into custody under the private persons arrest laws and you demand it, the police officer should honor the private person(s) arrest. If a police officer refuses, the best thing to do is write down the officer’s name and badge number and promptly report it to his/her supervisor. I do not recommend arguing with the police officer. There is a term psychologists use called, “contempt of cop.” This basically means disobeying the order of a police officer, arguing with a police officer, or antagonizing a police officer in some way which they take as disrespect. This makes a police officer’s job much more difficult and could make then a bit miffed. Needless to say, this would not work to your advantage. When this happens to me while carrying out the course of my duties, I see it as more of a “red flag” rather than disrespect. Based on my experience, when someone does not cooperate with me it is a sign that they are either going to fight or flee. Eight out of ten times, this has proven true for me.

    Every single cop out there has the same priority every time they put on their uniform; “make sure I go home in one piece at the end of the shift.” In high stress or dangerous situations, a person’s unwillingness to cooperate with law enforcement could be perceived as a threat or as an officer safety issue. You can expect the police to get in your face or to get physical with you in some fashion, to ensure their own safety. Even if you mean no harm, police officers are no mind readers and most don’t trust strangers. After all, we do not know the stranger’s mindset, past history, or physical capabilities. We do not know who may be carrying a gun. In fact, we are trained to think that way. Again, we are not out there to get ourselves killed, maimed, or injured. We are human and we have families waiting for us at home too.

    Should a protestor wish to place someone under “private person(s) arrest”, they should be sure they did not commit an offense themselves, or there will be one hell of a pissing match. This irritates police officers to no end and the police would offer to take both parties to jail to solve the “he said/she said” problem. Gather any witness(s) they have and immediately summon a police officer who is on-scene or call 911. Although a citizen has a right to physically detain the offender, it is not recommended. Good discretion is necessary in these cases. After explaining to the officer what had happened, the protestor can demand that the offending party be “placed under private person(s) arrest.” The police officer now has a legal obligation to investigate the incident further. The police officer will generally question both parties and any witnesses and may want to review any evidence. If the incident was caught on video, be sure to let the officer know so he can review it to ensure there is a legal cause for him to take the offender into custody. We love video. Unedited video does not lie. If the police officer is doing a thorough investigation, he/she should request a copy of the video to be placed into evidence. Placing someone under “citizen’s arrest” will require your full cooperation with the police. Failure to cooperate in any way is a sure way to make the officer say “NO.”

    If making a “citizen’s arrest”, it is you who is making the arrest and it will be your responsibility to cooperate with prosecutors. The police officer is merely taking the violator into custody to be booked and also to document the incident by writing a detailed report. You will likely be required to fill out and sign a “Private Person(s) Arrest” form. You will also likely end up in court to testify as the “arresting officer.” In the not too distant past, police officers were obligated by law (142 PC) to accept private person(s) arrests. Failure to do so was a felony and the officer could be prosecuted. Recently, the law was amended to exclude private person(s) arrests under 837 PC. In other words, police officers are now allowed to refuse the private person(s) arrest. If this happens, be calm, polite, and professional. This should help prevent any discontent that may brew between you and the officer. Politely ask to speak to their field supervisor and be sure to note names and badge numbers. This still may make the police officer distance himself from you more, but it’s your only option other than dropping it all together. When you speak to the supervisor, be as calm and polite as possible. He/she will be more willing to talk to you and listen to you.

    Here are 12 easy tips on how to conduct your self when dealing with a police officer and to help gain his/her trust:

    1) Keep your hands in plain sight. Keep your hands out of your pockets. In a police officer’s mind, pockets can contain weapons.
    2) Stay calm, be respectful, and be polite. Remember, if there is a lot of drama, the officer might be a little excited. Do not take it personally if his attitude is less than stellar. If you remain polite and maybe even personable, he/she will calm down.
    3) Do not interrupt the officer while he is speaking to you. Be patient. You will have a chance to talk.
    4) Cooperate with the officer.
    5) If the officer wants to pat you down for weapons, let him. If you have no weapons on you, there is nothing to worry about and it will make the officer feel safe. In most cases, officers have a right to pat you down for weapons for officer safety reasons. Refusing to be patted down for weapons will raise a red flag for the officer.
    6) Keep eye contact.
    7) You know the “other side” will likely make accusations against you too. The “other side” will also have cameras. Don’t deny the obvious.
    8) Be truthful. Getting caught in a single lie will completely destroy your credibility with the police officer. Trust me on this one!
    9) Do not get in a pissing match with the officer. Do not say things to the officer like, “I demand…”, “You can’t do that”, “I want to file a complaint”, “I don’t have to do that”, “You can’t make me…”, etc. None of that will help you in any way. If you feel the officer acted inappropriately, just calmly get his/her name and badge number and report it to his superiors later.
    10) Do not challenge the officer’s legal decisions face to face. Despite what some people believe, police officers (especially in large cities) are highly trained and very experienced. They know more than you think they do. If you believe the officer was trying to brush you off, get his/her name and badge number and report it to their superiors.
    11) Do not taunt or make fun of the police officer
    12) Look at the officers name badge and call them Officer “name” or Deputy “name”. It makes things a little more personal and seems more respectful.

    It helps to understand the mind of a police officer and it is important that people understand the difficult jobs police officers have. Police officers have to deal with the most dangerous criminals that walk the streets, day in and day out. We have to deal with unimaginable stress, negativity, violence, danger, and stereotypes every day. If I had a dollar for every time I was asked, “do cops really eat donuts”, I would be a millionaire. I try to see the humor in it, so my usual answer is, “No, we are more health conscious now. We switched to bagels.”

    Things I have experienced in my 18 years as a police officer would make some people sick. Generally, police officers all over the country have similar experiences. I have seen countless innocent elderly people, children, and others from all walks of life violently victimized in one way or another. I have seen blood and gore, the likes of which even movie special effects cannot quite replicate. I have had to give the bad news to parents, spouses, and family members of people who have had their lives suddenly taken from them. I have witnessed the violent deaths of friends and fellow peace officers. I have been the target of murderous criminals on more than one occasion. I have been shot at, stabbed at, beat, spit on, and received death threats to me and my family. Individual police officers cope with these stresses in different ways, but the truth is, we carry it with us forever. Violence against police officers has risen dramatically. Police officer deaths have sharply increased over the last ten years. Police officers are human. Like anyone else, we sometimes make an honest mistake or lapse in judgment. We are not robots, we are not flawless. Although most police officers are highly trained, there is no training for mentally dealing with stress and the dangerous of our job. We all react differently in one way or another to these situations.

    Try to remember why a police officer does what he/she does. We are out there trying our best to do the right thing. I recognize that there are very small handfuls of cops out there who have no business carrying a gun and having such huge responsibilities. Some police officers aren’t the friendliest people you have ever met. It isn’t personal. We do not know you. You are a stranger. Lack of personality or friendliness is sometimes due to mistrust, years of constant negativity towards us, and many times it is our “protective wall.” Sometimes, it is due to the fact there is so much going on and we cannot help everyone at the same time. It is easy to get overwhelmed during a protest. Contrary to popular belief, most of us do care but are sometimes unable to help in the way some people want.

    The name and adress of the Anon was already known to the Cult.
    It is the same Anon whose home was picketed at 5:00 amby Scientologists.

  6. L.Fraud Hubbard Says:

    -Bill “If a victim or witness of a crime is harassed IN ANY WAY as a result, the harasser can be charged with a crime (intimidating a witness or victim). That is a felony in the state of California and take very seriously by prosecutors. If any of the witnesses or victims in this case get harassed in any way, it is very important to call the police and have a report written. Make sure you get a report number from the officer. Immediately call the prosecutors office at the appropriate court house and notify them. If you do not know which court to contact, ask the officer at the scene.

    I have personally gotten criminals prosecuted for such actions, which just adds to their original charge. Most of the time, the judge will enhance whatever punishment may be forthcoming.

    So, whether you prosecute or not, your name still goes on the police report if you report the crime. ”

    For any current Scientologist who is able to view this page PAY ATTENTION !!!!

    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as RICO Act or RICO) is a United States federal law that provides for extended penalties for criminal acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. RICO was enacted by section 901(a) of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970 (Pub.L. 91-452, 84 Stat. 922, enacted 1970-10-15). RICO is codified as Chapter 96 of Title 18 of the United States Code, 18 U.S.C. § 1961–1968. It was intended to make it easier to prosecute organized crime figures, but has been applied in several other cases as well.

    Where RICO laws might be applied.

    Although some of the RICO predicate acts are extortion and blackmail, one of the most successful applications of the RICO laws has been the ability to indict or sanction individuals for their behavior and actions committed against witnesses and victims in alleged retaliation or retribution for cooperating with law enforcement or intelligence agencies.

    The RICO laws can be alleged in cases where civil lawsuits or criminal charges are brought against individuals or corporations in retaliation for said individuals or corporations working with law enforcement, or against individuals or corporations who have sued or filed criminal charges against a defendant.

    Anti-SLAPP:
    [Strategic Lawsuit against Public Participation]

    Laws can be applied in an attempt to curb alleged abuses of the legal system by individuals or corporations who utilize the courts as a weapon to retaliate against whistle blowers, victims, or to silence another’s speech. RICO could be alleged if it can be shown that lawyers and/or their clients conspired and collaborated to concoct fictitious legal complaints solely in retribution and retaliation for themselves having been brought before the courts.

    Sounds Familiar Huh?
    You DO NOT want to be in Scientology when the indictments start comming down…..
