    I went during the 80's for about 2 months. The head supervisor-a lady I cant recall her name...she had a teenage daughter. She slammed me up against the wall in front of everyone and told me " I would never become anything in this world but a piece of shit".
    I had gotten out of the S.O. and my mom made an arrangement that I was to go to a Scientology school at least. So I had to go there..Sorry I never learned a darn thing there and mostly played outside.
    By the way, I'm glad the way I turned out.

    that's just not what ya do or what ya say to a kid

    I'm glad the way you turned out, too. And there's still no excuse for treating anyone, let alone a kid, like that. That's more the kind of thing I was worried about, not the child sexual abuse, just plain and simple mean bullying. There was a mean, bully streak in Scientology management and the SO. Hated that part, and I eventually left because of it. :runaway:

    Well... once again, I'm glad to hear you rode it out as well as you did.

    I second what outlawgal said. Screw them and the horse they rode in on! This type of behavior isn't limited to Sci schools but they sure seem to use it constantly. Makes me sick. I'd just like to smack em for this kind of crap! :angry: :angry:

    Is this the same place that they opened for the kids that were in the ATA in Hollywood back in the early 90's???? I remember the talking about a ranch for years, but my dad got me out before it was finished. If it is the same place, I got bad news....the molestations started from before the ranch even opened. It was comming from the ATA itself. I know this firsthand.....

    OMG - can you report it to the relevant authorities? Here in Oz there are moves afoot to get this sort of stuff before the courts - I'm guessing you're in the US so i don't know specifically who there can help you but I'm sure there are people who will contact you soon. PM me if you like and I'll do what I can to help.

    Wally Hanks - OT VIII and child molester

    Wow. Auditing out those body thetans really fixes people up. So Wally Hanks is an operating thetan. By the way, Dennis Clarke was an employee of Mace-Kingsley School in New Mexico as well, so he may know Wally.
    Wally boy is evidently living in Western Washington state and laying low. Wally needs to learn firsthand himself what sexual abuse means - from the inside of a prison.

    Thank you for the info, Zinji.


    Looks like this bears some investigating. This she-wolf does not tolerate abuse & pedophiles well. :angry:

    There is also one in Georgia, close to the Florida state line, towards the gulf coast. I was informed that it was not a nice place....

    good times at MK

    Hello, I was sent to the ranch for nine months as a youth. Horrible place, I was not in school during this time (not that this is something out of the ordinary for scientology children). I was made to sleep in a garage with a hole about one foot from my bunk in the middle of winter with only one blanket. I could list many horrors of the ranch, but I haven’t the time. However if you e-mail me I would be more than willing to answer any questions you may have.

    Best Regards,

    Welcome aboard Pinme. Mace Kingsley still runs a 'day care' in Clearwater, but, thankfully the Ranch is gone.

    There may be others though that we don't know about.

    Hi Pinmeup,

    Were you at the Ranch in the CA desert? I know how cold the winters are up there. Sometimes it snow's. I am sorry that you were treated in that manner. Who placed you there?

    After leaving staff I moved out to Palmdale and I heard that the "Ranch" for out of control kids was out there someplace but I never knew where exactly. This was the mid 1980's.

    Prior to that I did hear of Mace-Kingsley, and someone named Debbie Mace.

    As a pre-schooler, my daughter attended Peggy Patricks school out in the northern San Fernando Valley when she was first getting it off the ground. It was a nice environment for kids. It made me realize though that Scn kids were too sheltered from the outside world and that these kids were not learning how to interact with the outside. I felt this applied science should be used in the world not contained in a bubble and I put my kids in public school. I have no regrets.

    When I was in the church I was having a hell of a time with my son. I was thinking of this ranch but I was broke. Looks like it turned out for the best.

    He learned the hard way and now is going to be a dad again and has a good job with a great girlfriend.

    He is learning to do as he should have in the first place. Now even calls me once in a while.

    I know of two scn's who worked at the ranch. They never told of stories there, nor was I aware enough at that time to ask.

    Mace-Kingsley was offered as a possible solution (for the auditing) for a chronic medical condition of a young child. Hmmm....

    And now to top it off, that scum headmaster lives in my neck of the woods! :angry:

    But on a brighter note, when scanning the SPI (Seattle Posst-Intelligencer) link, I found an old high school bud of mine listed as well as the father of one of my old junior high school buds. They actually do great work and are an inspiration.

    I can tell you loads. I rode the MK Ranch into the ground. I even cried as my friends were slowly picked off by child services; I was deep. I've got the whole story all the way to the end; a dispersion of the remaining children to various cooperative residences of hiding in Albuquerque, orchestrated by the local org.
    But, are you listening? And can you help me find my friends?
