Wow, they covered a lot of territory in a short period of time!

They interviewed Patrick's Mom, Colleen Desmond, Randy Taylor, and Lisa Mooty, the Florida drug court supervisor. Mary Rieser informed us about how Narconon's clients lie, while she held her hands down on the desk to keep from shaking and told her lies. She claimed she never represented Narconon as a residential facility, yet websites and Lisa Mooty claimed otherwise. 

Last but not least, WSB made mention of the Department of Community Healthcare's division of Healthcare Facility Regulation and their lack of action, despite multiple complaints, over the course of a decade. 

Win after win!

 :O^:O# :O^:O#red# _|V|_ :-OP=\

 WSB reporter to Mary Rieser, Ms Rieser have you ever claimed to be a "Residential treatment facility", then a computer screen grab of a Narconon of Georgia website stating that in fact yes, it claims to be a residential treatment facility.

 Then a quick cut to Lisa Mooty of the Brevard Co, FLA drug courts and her video deposition. Quote Ms. Mooty. Yes, Mary Rieser stated that Narconon of Georgia is a "Residential treatment facility".

 Then another quick cut to Randy Taylor of Tennessee whose son was also enrolled in Narconon of Georgia at the time Patrick Desmond passed. In a video deposition, Mr. Taylor stated that YES Mary Rieser claimed Narconon of Georgia was a "Residential treatment facility".

 Who would YOU believe? A Scientologist incapable of telling the truth or a member of the courts or a private citizen looking for help with his sons addiction?

 

 I was very touched by Ms. Desmonds statements. Ms. Desmond you have my greatest respect! Then to watch as the executive director of Narconon of Georgia Mary Rieser belittle those that she claims to be helping.

 I cannot wait to see the state of Georgia,s Department of Community Health taken to task over this whole sad affair. Had the DCH done its duty years ago, IMHO Patrick Desmond would still be with us today!

 Though happy to finally see something happening here, PLEASE REMEMBER AT THIS VERY MOMENT MARY RIESER AND HER LITTLE GANG ARE HOUSING YOUNG VULNERABLE PEOPLE at the BERKLEY LANDING APARTMENT COMPLEX in DULUTH GEORGIA and the states DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHCARE FACILITY REGULATIONS is FULLY AWARE OF THIS FACT AND DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

 God only knows what horrors are transpiring there!

I think the gentleman in the third photo is the wheeling dealing former State Rep (and maybe also IIRC former Atlanta City Councilman) Doug Dean.

Thanks for the ID, Witnessman.  I'm glad someone recognizes these people.   :P

Does anyone else wonder if Mary Rieser holds her mouth so tight because she's afraid the truth might come flying out if she opened it any bigger?

6:15 WSB Radio Broadcast

OMG!  After playing a clip of former employee Allison Riepe saying Mary Rieser told her to change the letterhead on stationary they sent to the Florida Drug Court, all Mary Rieser had to say in response was "Stationary doesn't kill anyone." 

She totally doesn't get the sequence of events!  She doesn't even seem to get that lying to a Court is WRONG, and that if she hadn't lied, that Patrick would never have been at Narconon of Georgia.

She did say a bit more, but that one bit surprised even me.

I think it was Arnie Lerma who coined the phrase, "Scientology - it's worse than you think", but I'm gonna rephrase it to "Narconon - it's worse than you could ever imagine; it's worse than I could ever imagine!"

Live again at 7:45am, and I'm sure the audio will be posted later in the day for those who miss the live broadcast.

or if that doesn't work: http://www.wsbradio.com/ and click Listen Live.

Pete Combs' Part 2 of WSB Radio Show - very damaging.

Mary Rieser can't get out of this one!

Thank you, Allison Riepe!

Well, I didn't expect this but Tony is writing about the WSB media project investigation and finally links to TIPPING POINT but for some reason just gives me the credit for all the greart work all of us have done here. I will correct that.

Tony Ortega writes
Scientology’s Georgia Drug Rehab Hit with Double-Barreled Media Onslaught
For years, people like Mary McConnell and Carnegie Mellon University professor Dave Touretzky have worked tirelessly to get the word out about the deceptive practices and documented abuses at Scientology’s drug rehab program, Narconon.
( My name is linked to tippingpoint )

the Scientology braintrust really should have figured this one out years ago and found some way to put a lid on the Desmonds’ lawsuit. it has now spiraled from extremely bad to much, much worse and the Brian Williams, NYT, et al, of the world will obviously being taking notice. even more obviously, the Desmonds and their lawyers are looking to go Hiroshima and Nagasaki on the incredibly malevolent Narconon front org."

 Thank you Mary. I hope you do inform Tony. When you speak with Tony please make sure he includes Ethercat, mefree and myself as but some of the local citizens that have been and continue to work tirelessly in getting the state and media to shine the light on what we feel is a criminal enterprise. Oh and make sure Tony spells my name with 2 T,s. :)

Sorry to be OT (off topic, that is), but this is just too rich not to pass along. 
Did ya'll know that the motto of Narconon of Georgia is: “Recovery is more than a dream...” ?? http://www.prweb.com/releases/Narconon-Georgia-Mary/Rieser-Recovery-Month/prweb9963954.htm 
Oh yEaH! Much more than a dream... a nightmare of a deathtrap of a total fake scam.
