    I wasn't going to make this public as I was going on some advice from some wise and trusted friends. But seeing as some assclown (youknow who you are. I love you dearly but that was fucking stupid) put it on Facebook and within minutes it was on WWP I have to post a clarification.

    Yesterday morning just before 8am 5 armed policemen (not the usual ones, but the scary looking ones in suits) turned up at my door with a search and arrest warrant.

    They went through the whole house and confiscated all 3 of our computers (mine, Ians & my daughters) plus two external hard drives. They also took some disks which are inconsequential.

    They were very polite & professional and I have no issue with them at all. They did their best to make me feel comfortable. (Well as comfortable as anyone can be on a Tuesday morning when you arrested before breakfast or before you can even get your kid to school.)

    Then they took me down to the station, questioned me on video, took a mugshot etc. and took me home.

    I haven't been charged with anything as yet.

    I won't comment any further on any evidence etc as it could hurt me.

    I'd really appreciate it if you could just read the info, digest it and then give me some space & time to sort this out with the people who can help me. I don't mind if you talk amongst yourselves but please don't ask me too many questions.

    That sux.

    It may be helpful to those of us out here scratching our heads to know WTF the base allegations are, and if it is cult connected or not. (obvious answer is obvious, but still...) And did they book you, or just get your dox?
    (ie: were you actually arrested, or just 'booked'...not sure how it works down under..)
    Also, is it too early to start a pledgie drive?

    Yep, until the dust settles, best leave it there, on any public forum.

    What a buggar! ..............Looking forward to the time when this will be something the CofS regrets, but that time hasn't arrived yet.

    Hang in there in the meantime, Emms. Love to you and yours.
