Shiny & Free
I read two posts today on OCMB that really show the extent of the voilence and abuse of Miscavige. There are many such reports, including all the interviews in the St Petersburg Times.For the benefit of lurkers and new posters, here they are to start the thread. Perhaps links to the many other reports can be posted when I have time to find them. Just a reminder of what the management of the "Church of Scientology" is about.
If you Google
David Miscavige beatings, there are 147,000 hits
If you Google
David Miscavige assault there are 175,000 hits
If you Google
David Miscavige battery there are 349,000 hits
Incredulous how much this has been reported on the Internet.
Perhaps more incredulous as to how someone can commit assault and battery for 25 years and get away with it.
It is VERY VERY strict policy within the Church to never report any crime no matter how heinous to
Law enforcement. It is only reported within (to OSA).Of course Miscavige's batteries would not be reported at all. Within the Sea Org mind set and culture it would be unthinkable.
There are reports that Laurisse Stuckenbrock ("Lou") who follows him everywhere (his personal assistant) even carries cotton balls and anti-septic in her purse to dab onto bloodied noses and ears that she expects to encounter in the course of the day.
A few months ago I had dinner with a veteran Sea Org Member. We had not seen each other in 30 years. Someone on Facebook hooked us up.
It was an amazing re-union as our time tracks within the Sea Org had paralleled.
He volunteered a horror story, then I countered with another horror story, then he told another and I told another and so the night went...But it is the David Miscavige brutality that I want to make note of. The Leader sets the tone level and sets an example for the rest of the flock to follow.
This Sea Org member was top notch. Almost a household name in the US in Sea Org circles Worked 80 hour weeks. Loyal, dedicated, unwavering in service.
He was out of the blue summoned to a meeting. Miscavige wanted to see him, he was told. He was led to a small room under the main building of BIG BLUE on Fountain Avenue, Los Angeles 90027. (Under the "complex" are 3 floors of intertwining tunnels and a labyrinth of rooms and corridors. One of these floors was the Morgue of the old Cedar's Hospital. ) This veteran Sea Org member was placed in this room. It was an empty unfurnished room. He sat on the floor. This was in the 1980s. Hour after hour went by. No food or water. Some 6 hours went by.
Then Miscavige entered with his entourage. (He always has some 1/2 dozen enablers and thugs with him when doing his "rounds." ) 2 of them are out, 4 are still in lockdown so I will not name them, hopefully they will emerge one day.
Miscavige slugged this SO member HARD.
Not a word was said. No data on why this Sea Member was assaulted. No charge was ever brought, no Court of Ethics, no Committee of Evidence. Nothing.
The Sea Org Member stayed in this small cell like room for several more hours after the assault. It was freezing cold, he lay there shivering (no heating in this lower levels). No bed, no food, no water. He was a forgotten particle.
The next day the person in charge of the RPF came to get him. For the next 30 days, again with no charges or accusations, he was given a tool to scrape paint off old metallic pipes 12 hours a day. It was the RPF's RPF. He was cut off from all communication even with fellow RPF's and ordered to scrape paint 12 hours a day and permitted sleep 5 hours a day. He spent the next year and a half in the RPF.
This person has never told his story on the web. He has never published his account. He is still "under the radar" but hopes to come out soon.
His experience has made him disbelieve on ANY merit in Scientology at all.
He is not bitter, but he is emotionally scarred.
This is what the "Church" can get away with under the guide of "Ministerial Exemption."
It is legal to take away all civil and constitutional rights because they are a "Church".
Without a doubt David Miscavige was the most immature in a group of immature kiddies who took over in late 1981, and abused others across the sectors of organized scientology as they seized control of each sector.
I remember when I first met David Miscavige in late October/early November 1981 and spent about five hours with him teaching him the basics of the then newly proposed corporate structure where CSI and much of the new corporate structure was about to be launched. I had put together a proposal to launch it all and was told he was LRH's real rep and he had to approve the new corporate proposals so I paid him a lot of respect then.
I was amazed at just how ignorant he was and had to control laughter as he tried to act so tough. He kept trying to find holes in my proposals by trying to intimidate me by such immature things as swearing, saying I was "a fucking liar" as I explained the new structure, etc. etc. Then he would try to look tough by chewing his tobacco and spitting it in a cup each time looking to see if I was watching as if that would somehow impress me.
I was amazed at how silly and immature and stupid he came off. He asked no intelligent questions and knew only intimidation as his way of seeing if someone was not sure of themselves. He approved the launch of the new structures only when he could find no holes in it by constantly screaming and swearing.
Later in court he filed declarations that he was not involved in that corporate reorganization and completely perjured himself by cowardly lying to avoid potential legal liability for approving same. Here is a link to a posting I made on that very point about five years ago:
And here is a link to my free ebook called "The Miscavige Legal Statements: A Study in Perjury, Lies and Misdirection" that gives numerous examples of Miscavige cowardly lying, committing perjury and abusing others as part of his seizing and/or maintaining control in organized scientology:
In the two years following that I saw Miscavige beat others, spit on others and constantly use profanity to get his way and to intimidate others into following him.
I also watched him run the international finance police ordering them to get completely innocent people jailed just so others would fear him. Here are a couple of postings of mine on alt.religion.scientology in 2006 and 2007 that explain that sort of thing in a little more detail:
To this very day I see Miscavige's goons like Moxon still trying to frame innocent people including innocent Anonymous people who only were trying to point out abuses, something which Miscavige would not tolerate. He is doing that as we type on this thread to Anon Sparrow (Brian) in DC and he did that to Gregg, then an Anon in Boston shortly after Anonymous started pointing out his abuses and fraud.
Here is a link to an article I wrote on that back in 2008 when I was a guest writer for Factnet:
The abuses continue and continue. All you have written in this thread is true.
It is time for a reckoning. I believe that as long as more and more of us speak out the truth that that reckoning will happen.

As I have posted years ago, I walked in to a cabana at Int in late 82/early 83 and saw Miscavige punch one staff executive hard in the mouth, slap another hard and choke the third. A thing I will never forget is the look on their faces as Miscavige did it. It was a look of shock and despair. Here were people who were at the top and who had dedicated their lives to trying to help others who were horribly abused, beaten, spit on, laughed at and had their whole worlds crumbling around them. In their minds I believe their "immortal futures" were being cruelly held up in front of them and threatened if they did not subject themselves to this abuse and what would amount to a life of cruel slavery as long as they stayed "in".
And that example is so typical of so many such stories from others who have found their voices and spoken out now either by donning the mask as part of Anonymous where they found support and encouragement and comradery or otherwise after getting help from others or simply after being able to decompress enough over time to find their voices.
