Yesterday there was a shooting over at Scientology's Celebrity Center. Of course they like to spell it Centre because they just have to be different. Kind of like that whole Kate and Katie thing. Apparently a guy got out of his care with two large samurai swords, and started waving them at the security guards. He got too close so they killed him. The same thing probably would have happened in that Tom Cruise film if they had guns back then. It would have saved us two hours of watching bad acting and he got killed in the end anyway. Didn't he? Maybe it was just the Japanese guy.
Anyway, my problem is not with the security guard for his actions. There was video of the encounter from a million angles and if a guy is waving around samurai swords at your head from five feet away and approaching I doubt you are going to try and talk to him. My problem is with what the Church did to the guy or didn't do to the guy with the swords.
The answers I was hearing yesterday were answers that investigators regurgitated faster than a mama bird to a baby.
“He had a history with the Church, but is not a member now.”
“He was involved with the Church a long time ago.”
“There was a previous relationship, but it is unclear to what degree.”
Sounds to me like when the investigators were investigating they talked to some spokesperson for the Church and this is what they told them. Meanwhile, I bet the Church staff were hard at work poring through all of the records pertaining to the guy and what he knew and what he had done and his auditing sessions and everything else. The answers given to investigators are so vague as to be insulting. Obviously this guy had a grudge. If it was so long ago, then why he is still carrying a grudge? Something must have happened. Did he lose his family? Couldn't afford the monthly payments? You don't just walk away from a Church, wait a long time and then decide to storm the guardhouse. Something is going on here and the Church and the police better not just stick to this crap script they played with yesterday. I want to see who or what was the reason the guy went over the edge. Maybe no one pushed him, but I would like to see his entire Church history before coming to that conclusion.
