Jasja was the first person taken down in the 7-day operation.

Excerpts from Mike Rinder:
Jasja Barendsen is a former Sea Org Member (the elite of the most ethical group on the planet, responsible for getting ethics in on this sector of the universe”). He left the SO around 2008 with his pregnant wife, Val, and first lived in California. They moved to Florida in 2010.
At the time of the arrests, the Sheriff stated: “We have a volunteer minister up there, we have a substitute teacher. We have a firefighter up there.”

The term “Volunteer Minister” is very familiar to anyone in Scientology. In fact I don’t know of any organization other than Scientology that uses the term in that way. It was pretty clear this was a reference to Jasja.

But despite the crime and his subsequent conviction and imprisonment, the matter was covered up. This is typical procedure in the church, especially where sex crimes are involved — Amanda Ambrose’s son, Tony Strawn (also ex-SO) was convicted of child sex abuse in Florida and it too was hushed up. So, covering up this sort of thing is par for the course.

But the Church did not declare Jasja or require that his wife, or anyone else, disconnect or even distance themselves from him. Oh, the irony — this is one instance where it might actually make sense. The Facebook police weren’t rolled out of their KoolAid slumbers to alert the sheeple. No whispering campaign went out on the scientology grapevine to steer clear of the child predator. Those actions are apparently reserved only for “internet offenders” — those who look t unsanctioned information about scientology on the internet, not “sex offenders” who solicit sex with minors.

How do we know? For starters…
Tony Ortega asks:
However, Rinder writes today, if Scientology is so vigilant about kicking out unwanted members and shunning them online, why is a sexual predator getting an exception to that rule?
EDITED TO ADD:

PLEASE READ MIKE RINDER'S WELL DOCUMENTED POST IN FULL TO GET ALL OF THE INFORMATION.

ONE LAST EXCERPT FROM MIKE RINDER:
How else do we know?

Well, the fact is that most Scientologists have no idea that Jasja has been in prison for almost 4 years. Even amongst the Scientology crowd where rumors spread like wildfire, Jasja’s crime and incarceration has been kept a well-guarded secret. Some evidence of this is the number of friends wishing him a Happy Birthday this past March with statements like “Have a great weekend!” I doubt a guy who’s been in prison as a sex offender for over 3 years is going to have a great weekend.
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD:

http://www.mikerindersblog.org/more-disconnection-hypocrisy/
Wanting to stay connected to one’s own parent, spouse or child can earn you an SP declare and expulsion from Scientology, but soliciting sex from a minor and going to prison will not, even if you’re a former Sea Org Member.

This isn’t a shock to me at all. I worked with Jasja while I was on the RPF. the Sea Org breeds this mentality. It encourages men to lust after young, more often than not, under age girls. They have less overts and are “clean” as beings because of that. And most are virgins, another super plus. I can’t count the number of old men I saw wedding young girls. Too many. One that sticks in my mind was when the Security Chief, James Richardson, the man in charge of EVERYONE’S morals, decided he wanted to marry a 15 year old girl. He was 27 at the time. Now for those of you out there who have never been in the Sea Org you can’t do ANYTHING with your significant other until you get married. So essentially he wanted to have sex with a minor. Instead of him being tossed out on his ass for what he is, a pedophile, he was allowed to harass and intimidate, in Scientology they call that “handling someone”, for 3 months until she gave her written consent for her underage daughter to marry someone almost twice her age. I am sure her eternity was threatened more than once because she was stopping a pro survival action and all that bullshit. Scientology is a cess pool of perverts. There were plenty of people with all kinds of sick shit in their past just freely roaming about. The only perversion they ever choose to see and punish is being Gay.

I knew of two old men, Doug Fiandica and Angelo Scozzi, they were in their 50's and 60's both of whom had raped minor girls. You know what happened to them? They were on the RPF. Surrounded by other young women for them to “accidentally” bump into and touch. You know what happened to the girls? They were offloaded because they were sluts who had seduced these men into these salacious acts and they couldn’t control themselves.

Scientology is the single most dangerous Cult on the planet.

I don’t remember if he was Quinn’s boss, but they were both in the renovations org in LA for many years. Jasja was the head electrician. One interesting point is that he had been assigned to the RPF back in the 80s for, wait for it….., having sex with a minor. To be “fair” he was a minor back then as well. I thought the RPF was supposed to fix people.

This is what I posted on Mike's site:

How many “children” “teens” did he have access to in the SO? Did anyone go looking & checking to see if they had been victims? Most guys of this sort “do”100+ children before caught, saw that in a study someplace. Did he get “help” in prison? Will he be allowed on any sciobot property? As a registered sex offender he can not go where “children” gather, playgrounds, schools, CHURCHES, etc.

I do not believe in hanging someone once there sentence is served BUT sex offenders are a different “animal” and have to be watched till the end of their time.

The sex offender list is probably not where most sciobots hang out – especially since they are to guard against end-theta on-line.

I think a nice follow up article with a quote from a church spokesperson would be interesting… any reporters for the Tampa Bay paper hanging out here??

~*~*~*

Has anyone followed up on possible other victims...?? I wonder if the church would get dragged into court if victims were found from while he was SO?

His wife needs to be educated on the dangers to her children... even if he never does anything to them... being raised by him might be an issue.... he would not have access to my kids or breath the same air in the same geographic location.

But I am just an old mama bear - protect your kids no matter the cost.

Really excellent points. In some states he would not be allowed to be with his children unless supervised. One should be able to find his probation/parole details, as well as his sex offender level, online by checking out the offender locator or offender information site for that state. It may take a week or so to update. Also - if he's seen going into an org with child care a phone call to the local police would be in order.

"Florida's sexual offender/predator registration laws do not prohibit a sexual offender/predator from living with a child or minor based solely on the individual's requirement to register. However, if an offender/predator is currently under supervision he or she may have specific guidelines/restrictions set by a judge."

http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/FAQ.jsp#Question11

Considering Barendsen only got 2 years supervised probation, I suspect he's considered a low-level sex offender. The judge didn't make any special demands as part of his probationary period.

Looks like Jasja was released in the last day or so and is now in some kind of supervised living situation, probably a half-way house. Will be interesting to see if he is welcomed back into the fold.

In $cientology the image of the group is far more important than the welfare of any individual member.

So, the molestation of children will always be hidden & the person who did it will always be shielded from proper legal procedure.

It is just the way they run the show. Yet, people let their children around this ingrained atmosphere.

Isn't THAT baffling ?


OK, now tell that child was really million or trillions of years old.................right ?
