I wonder what will become of those poor individuals whom currently have placed their hopes of recovery in the hands of narCONon of Georgia? Does this raid open the door for the DCH to actually step in and close the facilities doors until the investigations have concluded?
Would that not be in the interest of public safety?
This is Miscavige's worst nightmare. Mary Rieser and anyone else at Narconon Atlanta will likely be thrown under the bus if ONLY because Miscavige figures they are so tainted that ANYTHING done to try to help defend them will blow back on the church and him because this whole Narconocalypse is being watched SO closely by the media.I suspect his biggest concern right now is that this is a breach in the wall that has held back law enforcement/govt agencies from conducting any criminal prosecutions of anything related to Scientology in the US for decades. Not since the GO raids has anything like this happened. Will this small crack widen and some other government agencies will decide they can get through the breach in what has been an impenetrable fortress for more than 30 years?Miscavige sits on the horns of a real dilemma — what do you do?Dump Narconon to avoid being associated and as a result have the government win easy convictions and embolden other agencies,orJump in and defend them with all he's got, become totally identified with Narconon, and still lose because the truth is that Narconon has been utterly criminal and deserve to be convicted? And in that case, the Department of Justice and others will know the church is no longer invicible.Damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.I certainly hope there are some people in the DOJ who are following Tony Ortega's stories. Behand the apparently unbreachable wall is a cesspool. And the cesspool isnt just Narconon. Their sewage just happened to seep out first — it tends to happen when people die under your care. I hope it doesnt have to go that far before anyone decides to take on the church itself.
Mary Rieser has still been working with Narconon, though wasn't at the facility today.
I had reports from different people this week that they had dropped from about 80 clients down to about 20 and that they were trying to borrow money from lending agencies. Then this hits unexpectedly and all their files and computers are gone. Of course the clients and their families will find out. They will try to "run damage control" and see if they can transfer clients to other Narconon facilities (I don't see how they could actually operate now). The remainder will simply leave or go to another treatment center, but if they pre-paid for the program then Narconon will have to issue their funds back. GA doesn't have the money to give back to them, so it will have to be borrowed from Arrowhead somewhere.
Depending on what documents were taken in the raid, they may have too many holes in their records to keep DCH off their case if they try to stay open. How many of the students (or their families) and staff will get spooked by this and leave? Some may be stuck there but others might leave at this point.
Yes, this is a time of joy for us here!
Happy dancing on narCONon behind bars!
