L. Ron Hubbard
That out of the way, it's possible that you may be thinking of this.
From a 2007 ESMB post by Alan Walter, a student on the Class Eight course on the ship:
The scene with overboarding on the Original Class VIII Course was if an auditor did not get an F/N on their pc at examiner - they were thrown overboard.
We would line up on the well-deck in the morning at 8.00 am - LRH would look down from the deck above and announce who would be thrown overboard.
He was surrounded by his Aides. Also he was recording all of this on camera....
I remember looking up at them - I was staring into the face of shear madness and evil.
Usually 8 to 10 people were thrown overboard each morning.
It was about a 30 foot drop into a filthy feces laden water from the other ships and the Apollo directly releasing their sewage into the channel...
This was October 1968.
....Ron had Julia Salmon thrown overboard... terribly overweight and could not swim.
The people who threw her overboard struggled to get her over the side; she was terrified; she kept crying out "I cannot swim!" On her way down she hit the side of the ship - I could hear her screams - it was obvious she was injured and drowning.
The people on the deck all stood around too afraid to do anything. Fearing to originate any action less the become the target of LRHs displeasure.
I ran and jumped over the side and rescued her. I then pulled her over to the ladder that led up to the ground level of the dock........it was about 20 feet straight up. She could not climb the steps. I had my shoulders under her butt pushing her up..... no one still had come to help.......but at the top of that ladder stood LRH filming us.....such evil.......
Anyway after an immense struggle with Julia's help I was able to push her up to the top of the ladder....finally some help arrived.
Over the years the unthinkable thought pushed forward more and more....it was 'that I observe that LRH was demonic at that time'. I did not want to know that, did not want to believe that.......that was too incredible to be believed - even for me - I did the usual make nothing of myself....'you're seeing things', 'what do you know', 'you've got overts' - much easier to blame self than confront what is.
this is very good writing...
