PAC 1977 Rock Slam RPF - Wayne Marple

Gold Meritorious Patron
This post seems to have started in 2000 on alt.religion.scientology and it has been reposted by Lulu Belle on ESMB in another thread. I am including it here again because it is so central to the subject of Wayne Marple and the RPF circa 1976-78. To just say 200 people were assigned to the RPF wrongly may be difficult for people to comprehend but this helps to put a face on it. TOBB

Back when the "Complex" was first bought, Wayne Marple, who had been
the ED of the New York Org in 1970 or so, was assigned to head up the RPF in the PAC area. All kinds of people were Put on the RPF. It was just to have a couple of hundred people who could supply free labor to Renovate the complex. 'Why' they were put on the RPF is irrelevant. Besides, a broken meter will Show a rockslam on and off. Also, lots of auditors at that time didn't know what a rockslam looked like And called every dirty needle a rockslam. A lot of people were labeled rockslammers from those dirty needles, which was found out later. Of course, about 150 people were reprieved from the RPF as soon as the renovations were completed and they needed staff again to deliver services.

She used to be in charge of the switchboard. She was in a tiny room for literally years without having a vacation or any real break. She was married to Dick Coanda who was the Briefing Course Word Clearer. Dick is a well-educated college professor and they had 4 or 5 children. All of their children were in the Sea Org. One of the daughters was married to Mark Hamilton, who used to be the Briefing Course Supervisor. They had 2 children. Mark left his wife and children to marry Lisa Hamilton, who is now the Continental Liaison Office Director of Inspections and Reports. She is chiefly responsible for the current inquisition occurring in the Los Angeles
area. What she does is help arrange for kangaroo courts, interrogations and illegal suppressive person declares. Also, sometimes people are 'secretly declared.' There is a list that circulates confidentially inside the Sea Org and if a person is on the list the are not allowed to receive services at the Orgs, but they aren't officially declared. She is also responsible for Lori Coanda's daughter losing her husband, Mark. She had to leave the Sea Org to support her children. Mark is a deadbeat father who doesn't pay child
support. All of the Coanda family are now out of the Sea Org. The children are completely disillusioned about Scientology, which is the norm for 95% of these kids whose parents raised them in the Sea Org.

Sherry was a very good auditor. She audited for a while for AOLA. She also had been in some sort of executive capacity on the big renovation project of the Cedars complex when she was on the RPF. She left the Sea Org about 15 years ago and became a field auditor. However she was constantly harassed by IHELP (a Scientology Sea Org group that collects tithes from auditors for using Scientology tech). The Sea Org has a lot of resentment toward ex-Sea Org members who have left. They are not allowed to audit in Missions. They are often harassed when they audit in the field, particularly if they make a living out of it. They nickel and dime them until they get discouraged and stop auditing. This is sort of what happened to Sherry. Sherry works in her own business selling antiques or something.

> 70. Doug Nagy - Tours Reg ASHO D

He left the Sea Org years ago and went into business and made a lot of money and did some FSMing years ago for AOLA.

> 71. Guy Norlen - FBO NW
> 72. Jeanie Norlen - ASHO F
> 73. Renee Norton - CO ASHO F Renee Norton is still the CO of ASHO/F.

Was married to Larry Norton. They got a divorce and Larry later married a girl named Chris Robles from San Diego. They moved to Fresno, California. Chris started a mission there that was doing really well about 1995 or 96. Then Sea Org recruiters from Flag came in and cannibalized the staff members. They recruited most of her staff and left the Mission with only a skeleton crew. As a result of many missions from Flag being at her Mission the Mission collapsed. Because of that she was declared an SP because they couldn't ever admit that the Sea Org wrecked the Mission. Although Chris did do the obligatory 'conditions' and is now back in good standing, there is no Scientology Mission or Org currently in Fresno.

> 74. Ivan Obilensky - CO AOLA

Ivan was declared an SP when he was the Commanding Officer of AOLA. This was around 1986 or 87. Now with so many obviously unfair SP declares no one knows nowadays whether that was a justified SP declare. No one in the Scientology field believes SP declares any more. So many people have been declared SPs. The golden rods (all SP declares are issued on dark yellow paper) are so amateurish, with so many spelling and grammar errors and so many gross errors in simple logic that they are considered a joke by even teenage Scientologists. Sea Org members are considered to be dangerous and malicious or misguided. Recruiters have to go further and further afield to find loyal Scientologists who are outside the loop enough to believe the Scientology jingoist/victim line. Even though Scientologists don't rise up and do anything because they still think that a direct revolt would be futile, they do generally refuse to shun declared SPs, they are actively boycotting the Orgs and they especially council teenagers to go to college and to avoid joining staff.

Ivan was married to Nancy. They had 4 children. Nancy is still on staff at AOLA. She has been married to Phil Christodoulou, who is from England. He is a very good auditor but had a lot of trouble writing the sessions up. He would do half a weeks worth of auditing and never write the sessions up, so he was taken off auditing. He is also a very good chef. I think he cooks now at the Manor hotel.

Nancy has always looked very bedraggled and sad. Her children were almost abandoned by both parents. One of the children, Serge, became extremely out of control. He was running around with other Sea Org teenagers who were taking drugs and engaging in petty theft. Sasha is sort of semi-homeless. No job, no education, no prospects. When the kids were younger, Ivan left the Sea Org and completely abandoned his children. Nancy also has taken virtually no responsibility for her children. Executives in the Sea Org have looked the other way as children of Sea Org members have run amock, become juvenile delinquents, alcoholics, etc. Nancy for years has supervised the OT levels at AO. No one dares to ask how her children are. There are hundreds of Sea Org kids like this who work menial jobs because they have been handicapped by poor education inside the Sea Org, disrupted family relationships, parental irresponsibility which is fostered by the management of the Church. Indeed, Sea Org management punishes parents who try to spend time with their children. Any child who
doesn't join the Sea Org at 16 is kicked out of the Complex and is left homeless to fend for him or herself. A few years ago it was a scandal that these kids would hang around skateboarding or playing around the Complex because they had no place to go. One or 2 would have an apartment around the area of the Complex and hold parties with heavy drinking and promiscuity. Late teens and early 20 somethings would have such low self-esteem that they didn't even have relationships but would have 'fuck-buddies' -- relationships for sex only. Most of these kids hate their parents and the Sea Org including a close relative of David Miscavige. Management instead of handling these children orders security to kick them out of the Complex area. One child of a very senior RTC Executive noisily left the Sea Org, was declared suppressive and her father has completely abandoned her and refuses to take any responsibility for the relationship.

While the Church of Scientology has been putting Scientology through the Narconon Program into prisons to get people off drugs and Applied Scholastics has been putting tutoring programs and The Way to Happiness has been pushing Scientology into the society, the children of Sea Org members have been getting into drugs, poverty, illiteracy. At one time, about 10 or 12 years ago, a gang of Sea Org teenagers got out of control and were engaging in criminality, drug use and alcoholism. The Obelinsky kids were part of this group. Instead of getting the Sea Org parents to take time off to take care of their children, an order was put out to ban these kids from the Complex area. The Church is not only trying to help other groups it is grossly neglecting its own children. On top of that Management had the security guards throw these kids out. Kids whose parents were working in those buildings they were barred from! I am assigning Management the condition of Treason because of this. If they had any shred of decency they would apply Treason which is the proper condition and stop saying they know what is good for everyone else's children and for society when they have been dismal failures in raising their own kids. Because there was so much trouble from the Sea Org mishandling of child care Sea Org members currently are not allowed to have children. If they get pregnant they are pressured to have abortions. Several executives who have opposed pressure to either have abortions or to push abortions on pregnant Sea Org members have been RPFed (put in Scientology prison) for opposing abortion. The public in the L.A. area has a lot of upset about this.
The Los Angeles field gossips continually about the problems of young people whose Sea Org parents neglected them or who left the Sea Org and are now handicapped by their lack of education and life skills. For example, a very high OSA executive at the Gold Base in Hemet who is originally from Holland had 2 children who she rarely saw who were raised in a Sea Org nursery facility in Europe. The daughter and son were dissuaded from contacting the father who was a disaffected Scientologist. The daughter, Jade, continually attempts to have some sort of relationship with her mother but her mother almost always rejects her. A few years ago when Jade got married her mother failed to attend the wedding which upset Jade.
When children of Sea Org members reach 16 they have to either join the Sea Org or leave Sea Org facilities. This means that they are forced to join or they will have to live on their own often without any adult support or supervision. These kids often live together and take menial jobs because they don't have enough money to stay in school.

There is a kid named Rocky from Australia whose mother works at OSA.
The kid has been on his own since he was 16 because he refused to officially join the Sea Org. When he needed an operation he had to go to the County hospital as an indigent person and seek medical care. During this time his parents still didn't give him help or guidance.

> 76. Richard Otten - FBO NW
> 77. David Pearson - FBO Pubs US
> 78. Nancy Phelps aka Nancy Schwartz - ASHO F/PAC SO
> 79. Alan Prager - CO ASHO D

Alan is still in the Sea Org. He now is at Flag. His wife, Ellen Prager, is the one who found that OT 5 was missing some steps. They are both highly trained, yet they both slavishly promote and accept the squirrel Golden Age of Tech.

> 83. Rosan Rich - Dir Inc Pubs US
> 84. Sue Richeson - BSO ASHO D
> 85. Barbara Rubio - was ordered but refused to report; was Snr C/S ASHO D

She left the Sea Org in the mid-1990s. As a public, when the Golden Age of Tech came out she refused to do it, so they put out a public Golden Rod issue on her threatening to declare her suppressive if she didn't handle her 'out-ethics.' She went back in so that she wouldn't be declared and somehow was persuaded to re-join the Sea Org. She eventually did do the Golden Age of Tech, although from reports she was scowling the whole time. But then again, Barbara has rarely ever smiled. I was shocked when she became Senior C/S at ASHO/D at the time the Briefing Course had 700 students on it and Barbara was doing it she used to chew gum and also play the tapes at high speeds to get through the course faster. An issue came out later on condemning this called something like "L. Ron Hubbard is not Mickey Mouse." Barbara Rubio cared about her auditors and was always nice, although she is now probably being sucked into the Inquisition as Management gets more and more cruel.

> 86. Mike Rubio - ASHO D HCO/Flag/FOLO WUS

Mike Rubio used to be on staff at the New York Org in the 1970s. He was married to Susan Rubio. They both did the FEBC back then. Susan became the ED of the the NY Day Org and was very ruthless and cruel. Staff members who wanted to leave to do OT levels or go because their contract was finished were forced to remain on staff or be declared. She was in charge when 'crush regging' was going on. Many, many people on staff hated Susan and left staff because of her. Before she was the Executive Director she was married to Mike Rubio and was having an affair at the same time with Ken Krieger. Ken did a lot of crush regging. Susan is tall and blonde and good looking. Ken is also handsome – Robert Redford type. Mike Rubio was also handsome. I don’t think they did a threesome, Susan would just alternate – have sex with one, then the next night with the other. It was the ‘70s – free love era. Ken later became a very high up executive in Scientology senior management, he and Susan got married and Susan was at one time on the Board of Directors of the C of S or the RTC. Ken was also way up there ‘beyond the rainbow’ as they used to say. Mike Rubio left the Sea Org and now films depositions for lawyers for a living. He lives in Glendale, CA.

Ken was one of the best Tours Registrars at one time and really expanded ASHO/D. He was sent to the RPF for unknown reasons -- probably unjustly. This ARCX the field because everybody liked him. When Sea Org management tries to crush and destroy the spirit of people like Ken it really ARCXs the field and makes people less willing to go into Orgs.

> 92. Candace 'Candy' Sias - Pubs US
> 93. Paul Sias - Pubs USS
> 94. Michael Silverman - AOLA Registrar

Mike Silverman resurrected the use of 'postulate checks' - people writing personal checks for large sums of money when they didn't have the money in the bank. He also (along with other Registrars) trained people on how to obtain large numbers of credit cards. The way you do this is to apply for 5 or 6 credit cards all in the same day. That way you can hoodwink the banks into giving you credit cards when they normally wouldn't if they feel you have too much credit extended to you.

In order to control things, Mike and other Reges, especially the Flag Reges, would allow their pet FSMs to steal selectees from less well known FSMs. This has caused many, many flaps and much bitterness.
These FSMs are referred to as 'shark FSMs' in the field. They are forever on the Briefing Course but they never complete. The sharks include Mitch Televi, Pat Parody and the worst, worst sharks: Wendy Ettricks and Joanne Schnitzer. They just blatantly steal FSM commissions. The Sea Org loves them. They are on the same wavelength. They both have been on the Briefing Course for 15 years but they are only trolling for fresh meat. They suck up to rich people in a really disgusting way.

As a result of years of financial irregularities a lot of people declared bankruptcy and this created a major public relations flap between the Church and several credit card companies to the point where a person couldn't pay for Scientology services with certain credit card companies. This was such a big problem that the Church had to pay restitution to some credit card companies. Over the years phone registrars have called up people who have advanced payments on their accounts to ask them to take that money and use it to buy books to be placed in public libraries, etc. Of course, the libraries accept these books with a smile, but usually don't even put them on their shelves and later sell them for 25 cents or 50 cents with the plastic wrap still on them. It's usually library policy to
only place books on the shelves that are in high demand. Scientology books generally get zero circulation, so they come off the shelves quickly and are either thrown away or sold for a few cents. But the bigger scandal about this is that this is a way for the Church to get rid of those advanced payment monies. It has been found that often ASHO phone solicitors are lying and have been transferring money from peoples' accounts for advanced payments to books when they never gave permission. You see, staff members get a commission on each book sold and some unethical staff have been depleting monies people have on their accounts without the person's permission. ASHO has extremely psycho accounting records and it is therefore unwise to give them any money in advance. What happens eventually is the Org staff are unhappy when older Scientologists come in because they are afraid that their financial crimes will be found out by these people who want to use the money that they think is still in their accounts. So the staff is sort of repelling the public because the public 'misses their witholds' - almost finds out about their crimes. Mike and Ruthie Silverman (now Ruthie Discher) at one time were married. Ruthie is still a Reg at ASHO. But does anyone know what happened to their very troubled son, David? When he was a teenager Ruthie was broken hearted about the fact that she was not able to give him the time and attention he needed when he was doing poorly in school and becoming a truant and getting into trouble. David would probably be about 40 years old now.

Bob used to be the Class 8 supervisor at ASHO/D. She used to be married to Michal, an Israeli Scientologist who used to be the MAA at ASHO/D. They left the Sea Org and now have a day care center in the Wilshire district of L.A. About 10 years ago he went to proselytize Scn in India and was successful. Because the Sea Org hates ex-Sea Org members, they refused to acknowledge the work he did to open up India for Scientology and instead they gave the credit to Trey Lotz. Bob stayed there for about a year. Trey was only there for a short time. Sea Org executives made Bob agree not to talk about his experiences. Bob was very sad about all this. They have 4 kids and are still in good standing.

According to reports Michal was a very decent ethics officer with common sense -- unlike the current whacko Heidi. Heidi takes ethics to an utterly surreal level of bizarreness. One Scientology person named Susan Hanasab has made a career out of being parasitic on certain field auditors. She promises to increase their business and does nothing but cause them trouble. One field auditor had a Chaplain cycle with Heidi. Of course, at ASHO the field auditor ALWAYS loses. Naturally, Susan, who was really in a condition of criminal exchange with the auditor came out victorious in this showdown. Logic did not prevail, common sense was non-existent, only illogic exists in this Through the Looking Glass org. Another example, Heidihas been known to say to an employee who writes a Knowledge Reportabout an out-ethics businessman like Richie Acunta or Reed Slatkin, "Oh,you can't write a KR on him! He's OT 7!" And she rips up the KR!!

Larry and Renee were close personal friends of Bob and Louise Ealy during the mid-70s and early-80s.]

AB. BILL YAUDE... CPO (ADMIN).
Bill Yaude was auditing Yvonne Jentzsche, the founder of Celebrity Center when she died of cancer. He was declared SP or RPFed because of this. He has been declared a number of times but he always comes
back.

Yvonne Jentzsche used to be married to Peter Gilham, who now owns a vitamin supply company. She later on married Heber Jentzsche. She was very much liked by the public in the '70s and '80s. She and Quentin Hubbard used to tour around the U.S. giving lectures and Yvonne would do group processing which everyone really liked. She used to be acknowledged as founder of the Celebrity Centers, but the current management doesn't acknowledge her.

[Heh heh. Hi, Bill, you sporger and man of a thousand phony names! Seems Bill has an unhandled "valence" problem. I wonder if Bill has audited out all his "BTs" yet!! Ha ha.]

AB. BOB VEACH... CPO (ADMIN).
Bob Veach, who had been a Sea Org auditor and Case Supervisor in the Sea Org for over 20 years at AOLA and was a kind and wonderful person, objected when a Sea Org issue came down eliminating family time. Bob was one of the best auditors and C/Ses that AO ever had. What happened after that was some trumped up charges were issued against Bob, he had a Comm. Ev. and was declared SP. He left the Sea Org with his wife and children. He did eventually get back in good standing but he keeps a very low profile. Once in a while you see his wife's name in promo for the Foothills Mission that is located near Glendale, California.

This is reminiscent of what happened to Rocky Stump, hands down the most fantastic training Case Supervisor that Scientology ever had. He was destroyed by Hana Eltringham Whitfield who lied about him and basically ruined his career as a Scientologist back in the late 70s.

AB. LEE MORGAN... CPO (ADMIN).
AB. LESLIE EPSTEIN... CPO (ADMIN).

[I met her first when she was staff at AOLA. She has held many posts too, including Commanding Officer ASHO Day and LRH Communicator. She's married to Jonathan 'Jono' Epstein, the FBO Reserves guy.]

AB. BEN ELKINTON ... PO1 (ADMIN).

[He was Purser (Treasury Secretary) at Publications Org US. I think Ben had the hots for Pubs Org staff lady Cindy Byersley; he used to call
her "Boobersley" due to her large bustline. Ben's name comes up on a
search of IAS Patrons.]

AB. MIKE GRAU ... PO1 (ADMIN).

[Mike was the Director of Inspections and Reports ASHO Day (head of Department Three - Department of Inspections and Reports, which handles "ethics matters"). I was told two years ago by a former Sea Org member who
also knew Mike, that Mike had gone blind as a result of an explosion while looking for gold in Nevada.]

AB. HAROLD SIMS ... PO1 (ADMIN).

[Harold and his wife, Nicole, were staff at AOLA when I first met them.]

Harold could be an extremely mean, nasty supervisor when he was supervising advanced courses at AOLA. He was often a psycho disciplinarian. For a while in the early '80s he mellowed out and was very, very nice. But in the 90s he was a jackass. Rumor (not substantiated) has it that he left the Sea Org and died of AIDS. Nicole Sims divorced Harold a long time ago. She left the Sea Org, too.

[The correct spelling is "Ellingson"; he's the only guy I ever knew who had the middle name of just an initial -- 'X'. Jim had the misfortune of having been assigned "Treason" by the Assistant Guardian ASHO Day (Richard Deere) for *jaywalking*. This is mentioned in the Aides Order "The End of Cautiousness Eval.]

Jim was married to Barbara Ellingson. She was one of the best auditors ever at ASHO/D. They were both very upstat yet Jim was sent to the RPF. They are both now out of the Sea Org and have some sort of sales jobs.

AB. GLEN BALENTINE ... PO2 (ADMIN).

AB. ELAINE SANITSKY ... PO3 (ADMIN).

[The correct spelling is "Savitsky". She was a Sea Org member at ASHO Day and was posted in the Tech Division. She was later ordered to the RPF. The order, published as an "Ethics Order ASHI Day" said she had "gone out 2-D with a psychiatrist while on her annual 3-week leave". (I have no idea whether this allegation was factual.)

Sarah Strasser was the Senior C/S at AOLA back in 1975-76. She was very mean and cruel. She was arrogant and if her stats were Down she would scapegoat people to keep herself out of trouble. If there Was some flap over a preclear or Pre-OT and someone from Flag wanted to investigate She would make sure that the folder would disappear forever. She left the Sea Org and became the manager of the Shaw Health Center. She was declared Suppressive but stayed working at Shaw and told them that she would sue them if They fired her. It was very weird. Oh – she married Eric Urgens so at this period Of time she was known as Sarah Urgens.

was Supercargo ASHO Foundation. Bob was sent to the Guardian Office World Wide for finance training in the late 70s. Shortly after his return to LA, he and his then wife, Louise Ealy left the Sea Org.

I am not a lawyer.

But I have posted about this issue before.

There is Legal Precedent that "unincorporated associations..." can be sued as an entity.

It doesn't matter that the Sea Org is an unincorporated Fraternal organization.....IMO, they could be sued.

Here is just one Legal Reference that covers this topic:

http://www.uakron.edu/dotAsset/99e8eccf-0164-41a6-a00b-411eb674ef5f.pdf

Thank you for the reference. I am not an attorney either.

It may be difficult, but not impossible, to assign civil liability due to the unincorporated status of the Sea Org and that does seem to be the original intent, but the article you reference appears to confirm my key point:

That remedies which may not be available from the unincorporated association may still be available from the individual member by another member or non-member. In other words, the way this is set up, every individual working within the Sea Org appears to be organizationally manipulated into a position where they are particularly unprotected and liable.

Does the respective employing organization or the unincorporated association maintain adequate insurance to protect the individual member's exposure proportionate to the risk?

As I understand it, Wayne Marple left the Sea Org in 1982 and was Declared a Suppressive Person. Was he thrown under the bus because he followed orders to build up the RPF and became a legal liability? According to Jesse Prince, Wayne summarily had him locked up by 5 men where he was kept for 3 months before being released just to join the rest of the RPF. I have to think that with up to 200 potential cased for something like false imprisonment and abuse, LRH or somebody would do the math.

The church seemed to identify this issue with the IRS when they sued many individual employees to push for Charitable Tax Exempt Status. It was a monolithic agency that was difficult to sue but the individual membership was its vulnerable spot. What if every individual Sea Org member who contributed to the creation of The Hole and related abuses was individually sued?

"Whats good for the goose is good for the gander".

In Jeffrey Augustine's article he compares the Sea Org to a mafia. But when the mafia gets old and starts to lose its teeth you can pick off the lieutenants as more people are willing to testify and leak information. Those lieutenants should be quietly assembling their versions of mafia insurance policies and downloading them off-site before they to get tossed under the bus by The Don.

THE SEA ORG DOES NOT LEGALLY EXIST!

If I understand Jeffrey Augustine's article correctly, even if the RPF were conducted legally, the only people who would have the official authority to assign someone to it or manage it would need to be an employee or acting on the direction of an employee of the specific legal church entity to whom that individual was employed.

I am not an attorney but it strikes me that the perfect organizational defense which deflects all legal liability for civil lawsuits from the organization would by definition shift all the liability exposure to the individuals. Maybe a legally established organization can be free of all liability or the individual can - but not both.

If a Comm-Ev or RPF assignment is conducted by or ordered by people who are not part of your employing organization, but the outcome directly effects the status of your employment and pay, then doesn't that mean those individuals and their respective organizations are exercising hierarchical control over your employer and therefor share legal liability?

I was assigned to the RPF twice, the first around 1979 (by Jane Kember), the second in late 1995 by "proper" Comm Ev. By proper I mean the outward appearance of justice was there, not that it wasn't the usual travesty.

The second time I was asked by the MAA (Astra Woodcraft) to sign a form saying I was going of my own choosing to redeem blah blah blah. When I replied (to her great surprise) no thanks I'll route out, this was accepted as my choice in the matter and acted on accordingly. There was no physical coercion to drag me off. A couple of people tried to talk me out of it, but not very earnestly. At the time I thought they didn't think I was worth hanging onto, but maybe they actually wanted to leave themselves!

I don't think I signed anything the first time, but I didn't protest the assignment. I thought phew, at least now I can get some sleep.

Anyway, my point is that in 1995 I wasn't consigned into the RPF against my will. As it happened, a month later I decided to try out the RPF and ended up leaving several months later, but it was still my choice.

I don't see why anyone couldn't be sued.....civilly, if they harmed someone else.... (such as your "Hole" example above...)

What interests me are Legal maneuvers such as suing any Sea Org member....and there by suing the entire Sea Org Fraternal Organization. They are an "Association."

But there might be a problem of a Sea Org Member.....suing the Sea Org....

http://www.willmanlaw.com/_documents/Article\Article198.pdf

This article seems to emphasize the limits of legal liability to the unincorporated association for negligence. For sake of this topic I think we can make a distinction between things like negligence, and errors & omissions, etc. vs criminal behavior.

If Sea Org members are put in situations where they commit crimes or even appear to commit crimes or cause injury or loss then they can be charged as individuals. If you are going to order a bunch of men to lock someone in a room for months at a time or you are one of those men doing the locking, etc. then you can be charged - period. The nebulous organizational form of the Sea Org will not protect you. "Just following orders" will not protect you. It is all designed to protect LRH. I think that is the point.

From what I understand of The Hole, in principle, everyone on that compound who allegedly knew that someone was being restrained or tormented against their will could feasibly be individually charged. They might be innocent or negligent or whatever, but they could still be charged. Being an unincorporated corporation might be adequate for a slip and fall but in my opinion, anytime someone is assigned to the RPF the church is exposing its members to litigation.

This isn't the 1960s anymore. The PR fallout is impossible to contain and the lawsuit payouts can be in the 10s or hundreds of millions.

1979 - Jane must have sent you to the RPF as she was going out the door.

I think the church is playing legal Russian Roulette with the RPF program at this point. Even if a person signs a waiver, that doesn't constitute a right to violate the law. And whatever is agreed to, is what should be done.

Wayne Marple was under orders from Captain Bill, who was under direct orders of Hubbard. Captain Bill Robertson was assigned responsibility by Hubbard for completion of the renovations at PAC and the smooth transition of moving in each of the orgs in sequence and continue production. They did not have the people to renovate when lo and behold! A new tek discovery that relabels dirty needles as R/Ses. A quote from the old man, a reference that had not been followed. Somehow David Mayo was involved, but I remember something about him disagreeing that a dirty needle was an R/S, then suddenly it all got blamed on him.Then by one of those common miraculous supposed miracles of Scientology, it took two years to get this corrected and meanwhile, any staff member who said anything but 'yes sir!' was suspected of bad intentions, sent for sec checks, and if you could dirty up his needle (like Wayne Marple did) you got another free slave for renovations on 4 hrs sleep per night, crashing out for5 mins on the sunny.Everyone was terrified of being sent to the RPF. And when the renovations were done, the tek was corrected. :eye roll:
1977 and on orders of Hubbard? Of course I believe this at face value. 1977. Besides, a dirty needle is not a R/S, but in this case, a dirty needle is not that far from a R/S. What kind of needle did Hubbard and Capt. Bill had when they devised the plan (if they did)?

This post seems to have started in 2000 on alt.religion.scientology and it has been reposted by Lulu Belle on ESMB in another thread. I am including it here again because it is so central to the subject of Wayne Marple and the RPF circa 1976-78. To just say 200 people were assigned to the RPF wrongly may be difficult for people to comprehend but this helps to put a face on it. TOBB

If it's that Phil Stannard who was London Day HAS course sup and joined the SO, was on the RPF in the UK and became CO Estates afterwards, I'm afraid he died a few years back, a lovely guy. Phil played a mean guitar and had played with some very big named acts. He had a big personality.

After big blue was bought & needed renos the RPF became the largest org in PAC.

After the FH was purchased & needed renos the RPF became the largest org at FLB.

When the renos were done some reason was found to get people - in droves - off the RPF.

What a coincident, huh ?
