    You happen to be so right about that. :wink2:

    I looked through my extensive photo collection and found this historic gem.

    I also located the only known straight-on head shot taken back then. Seems like this guy worked
    as a model now and again before he fell on hard times. More recently, he was photographed burning
    books on the street in a barrel to keep warm.

    And even more recently caught trying to chase down a ticket at Sundance to sneak into the Going
    premiere, which he did and was documented on the message board a while back.

    Good times! :wink2:

    Managed it! Most times it's a no go.:p
    What a day! I have been catching up on all the action of yesterday & today, it has been like consuming a huge feast all at once, really.... It left me with the sense that something big is afoot.
    I will go with this overall impression that the outing of this PIs's arrest totally on purpose....agree with NoName that this is a prelude to a take down, just MHO.

    Absolutely. The DA's office who indicted Powell, not the cops, dropped the silencer possession charge, a felony in Wisconsin because it was not registered with the feds.

    "Wisconsin clearly allows people to buy and possess silencers if they comply with federal registration laws and pay the $200 fee...."A silencer, whatever its utility, is not a firearm, nor are the 'rights' to own and carry weapons, even if fundamental, unlimited," Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Megan Williamson wrote in reply to Barrett's motion. She also noted that even the U.S. Supreme Court, while solidifying some 2nd Amendment rights, also stated that not all laws regulating firearms should now be considered legally suspect."

    Tony O just added another police audio (update) from the PIs.

    “David has reason to be afraid, he’s a terrible person,”

    "Hill said David Miscavige and his two sisters do not speak to her or Ron Miscavige or his son Ronnie."
    David has TWO sisters? Am I reading this correctly?

    also, this was quite the scoop for that L.A. Times reporter, does anyone know how she managed it? Just digging into the hot topic of the week?
    I wonder why that police dept. released the report?

    And TMZ, also The Today show claim exclusives on parts of this story... Doesn't that mean information is being bought?

    The PI seemed to think Ron had written a book called "My son David".
    Maybe the church just lied to him, but why would they give him a title?

    I liked the part where he forgot the pass word to the encrypted I pad or lap top and the cops bought it. Who was on the case, Barney Fife?

    Yes, one sister committed suicide....the other has 2 recent arrests for DUI and a Drug Bust....

    Yeah and then some Chicago mobster, errrm I mean attorney arranges to scoop all the electronics up.
    My guess is the PI's would have been fired on the spot if they didn't have so much dirt on Davy.
    But at any rate, I bet they never saw any of that data again.

    I read that too....and assumed he had.

    So......there is no book title "My Son David?" Nothing written by Miscavige Sr?

    Edited: I checked the interwebs...and found nothing about this "book."

    Your deep investigative research is quite extraordinary!!

    Per your suggestion, we have continued our own painstaking work sifting through the vast treasure trove of previously undiscovered Hubbardabilia that we had the great fortune to purchase at that garage sale in Tilden, Nebraska!

    Going through many hundreds of correspondence letters from various family members, we were able to establish that L. Ron Hubbard had a twin brother, L. Rob Hubbard--who later became the heretofore mysteriously unidentified vagrant that you depict above.

    It seems that, behind the scenes, L. Rob Hubbard was the party actually responsible for all of L. Ron Hubbard's technical research. However, as far back as the 1960s (just before becoming a book-burning drifter) he drew startling conclusions that Ron apparently chose to ignore. . .
