    I don't believe any of it!

    Those sound like “claims from bitter disgruntled [STRIKE]apostates[/STRIKE] unlicensed PIs” who “have an axes to grind."

    I hope the twitterfest leads many to the white house petition.

    I swear, it's almost like the major media is timing major releases for maximum impact. So much fun.

    Guns in an RV, okay, whatever. The presence of the silencer is so creepy.

    Isn't there a tale of a PI being asked to kill someone and his testimony being sealed?

    David Miscavige's father worked in the band called "Gold Musicians" at Gold Base. Ronnie Miscavige senior was Sea org staff for some 30 years before he fled. It was reported that he prepared his flight and exit from the prison called "Gold Base" with wife Becky for a full 6 months of planning down to the second like a Seal Team Six mission that was do or die. Within weeks, L Ron Hubbard grand-daughter Roanne Hubbard (Horwich) also escaped.

    I don't know anything about sealed PI testimony, imSpecial; others here may, however. :confused2:

    The Chicago Tribune, Rinder's Blog, Huffington Post, and Reddit are all tweeting the story.

    Yep, this story broke with plenty of time to be featured on the morning network television news shows.

    Hmmm... wonder what David Miscavige's brother, Ron Miscavige, Jr., thinks about all this? Isn't he 'out', too?

    WTF?? The PI was arrested almost 2 years ago for this - it happened in July 2013 and just now we find out about it? Whaaa???

    I think it had to do with Cynthia Kisser and a PI being ordered to eliminate her and CSI getting a judge to order the PI's testimony about the order to kill sealed.

    Edit: I lurked all over the place before I signed up. Looking for references to this....brb

    Edit 2: Ummmm.....Smurf?

    The cult royally fucked up their response to this one. What do you think would be the response from any typical corporate or religious leader who was told their elderly father's every move was being followed by a heavily armed man, with thousands of rounds of ammo and a homemade silencer? I don't think they would have to be the one denying it was them having him stalked - in fact I think great concern for their father's welfare and safety would be the immediate response with a pledge to protect their father and get to the bottom of who is having him stalked.

    The normal response didn't even enter the minds of the cult bots. It was immediate denial, denial, denial. Not even one mention of concern for DM's father's safety or saying they find out who these nefarious PI's are and who's behind this threatening and scary operation. Obviously, they didn't say this because they are behind it, but they can't even fathom the response of an innocent mind or a human response showing concern for one's father.

    This is going to be epic.

    Gawker: Cops Say David Miscavige Spent $10K a Week Spying on His Elderly Father

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    Scientology leader David Miscavige was apparently so paranoid he hired two private detectives to keep tabs on his father and advised them to "not intervene in any way" if the 79-year-old had a heart attack.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, police records indicate the church paid two detectives $10,000 a week to read the old man's email and tap his phone calls. Miscavige was reportedly worried his father, Ron—who had left Scientology two years prior—might divulge negative information about the church.

    * * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    But the most cold-hearted detail—by far—allegedly came when Powell spotted Miscavige's father slumped over in what looked like, but turned out not to be, a cardiac arrest. When he asked what to do, "David told him that if it was Ron's time to die, to let him die and not intervene in any way."

    "Please be advised that Mr. Miscavige does not know Mr. Powell, has never heard of Mr. Powell, has never met Mr. Powell, has never spoken to Mr. Powell, never hired Mr. Powell and never directed any investigations by Mr. Powell," Sgt. Schultz, Miscavige's spokesman, said in an email.

    The shoot-from-the-hip style denials by Soter & Hertzberg make me think this story truly caught Co$ by surprise.

    I imagine angry orders are being issued to purchase "WhoIsDwaynePowell?" "WhoIsDanielPowell?" & "WhoIsTerryRoffler?" websites, even as a team of attorneys is on their way with bags of cash to have all 3 of these men sign NDAs.

    Let's hope TeamRathbun attorneys get to the Powells & Terry Roffler first. Hurry, Leslie Hyman, hurry!

    It appears the article relied upon facts gleaned from at least one West Allis PD arrest/interview report.
    I wonder if that report was only made it into the public record when Mr. Powell appeared in Court to formally enter into his plea agreement.
    That might explain why, although the arrest occurred in 2013, we're only learning of its existence now.

    Great catch! I hadn't thought of that.

    Now that you point it out, it's a freakin' whopper! LOL

    (over telephone)
    Hello. This is the police.
    We have arrested some people in connection
    to felonies, weapons violations and stalking your father.

    I didn't fucking pay anyone to stalk my
    father, leave me the fuck alone.

    ...and that's it? You're not interested in
    finding out who did this to your father
    or if your father is safe?

    I told you I didn't do it, so get the
    fuck out of here before I call the police.

    I am the police.

    Hey, stop wasting my fucking time
    you cocksucker. Can't you see I am
    the fucking pope of a motherfucking religion?​
