It's interesting that Per's answer to everything is to sue everyone.  Last year it was to sue anyone that he ripped off at his rehab programs and who actually wrote a complaint about it.  Now it seems that he is going to sue to the town that he lives in.

Which is a brilliantly stupid move.  Let's tally things up a bit.

1) The neighbors of AFR don't like him, as there have been many problems going back to when there was an alleged assault and a car jacking of the neighbor when Stonehawk was around and a drug addict escaped.   
2) The local police are getting sick of dealing with all the 911 calls and the problems at AFR and Tranquility Detox
3) The town itself is getting a little tired of all of these hundreds of out-of-town drug addicts coming into battle creek and either working there and using drugs, hitting the various strip joints, casinos and bars, or even those getting kicked out and creating all kinds of problems.
4) The neighboring towns that Per is sending kicked out drug addicts to their local homeless shelters as "punishment" after paying $30k for rehab are getting a little tired of this.
5) People who have made legitimate complaints about the rehab have been sued by Per.
6) The state of Michigan and Attorney Generals office are probably up their elbows in the large number of complaints being filed on Per.
7) Many of the other narconon staff members dislike Per as they feel that he has created a competitive entity that pulls people from their own scientology based narconons and seems to be almost squirrel like in nature. 
8) And now he thinks it's a good idea to create as much antagonism as possible by suing the very town that he and his rehabs, detoxs, reg offices, fsm offices, and variety of other holdings exist in.

Although I read in a post a while back that Per pays thousands of dollars for a public relations company, apparently they either don't know what he is doing, or are the worst pr company on the planet.  And he seems to think that a couple youtube videos sitting next to celebrities is going to eliminate the voices of all the thousands of people he is continually cr*pping on each day.

I could never understand the aspect of scientology which is to "harm other people and when they retaliate or get upset just claim that they are suppressives trying to bring you down".  Of course they would deny that, but it seems pretty apparent...at least in Michigan Scientology land.

Per is dyed in the wool sociopath.

And - I think he probably just uses Scientology because it is basically organized crime under a religious heading and he fits right it.

He  does seem to be spend a good deal of his time  and money in litigation, either as plaintiff or defendant.  Hopefully, if the Battle Creek Police Department investigation is thorough, the neighbors won't have to worry anymore and they will shut him down for good.

Source - you seem fairly knowledgeable about Battle Creek local response. Any idea why the Battle Creek Enquirer has never picked up on the fraud and complaints regarding his "rehabs" ?  I am very surprised there was no report at all on the death of Amber Bullins and her connection to Wicktrom's  empire.

Welcome to Reaching for the Tipping Point, source. I'm enjoying your posts. I'm as curious as Suppressive Person about the lack of media attention to the problems with the Michigan Narconons and clones.

I wish I knew a bit more about the goings on down there.

The Battle Creek Enquirer used to write a lot of articles.  Back then, the bane of Per's existence was Elizabeth Huff.  Google her name and battle creek enquirer and you'll see a lot of Stonehawk references.  Her and Vince Daniels are perhaps the two biggest reasons (outside of sites like this) that Stonehawk closed it's doors. 

I believe that she is Elizabeth Wilson now and might be more freelance.  Not sure if she works for the enquirer any longer.  Her linkedin appears that she does but maybe in a different capacity. 

She wrote some great articles and probably was integral in saving a lot of lives who were intending to go to Stonehawk....but instead read an article by her.

Someone should try and reach out to her.

It may be as simple as she is no longer in the department that would run those stories.  However, she might show a little interest now that the exorcism apparently didn't really work.

Thanks for the info and resource.

You are correct the locals don't like Per's "Rehab" trashing up their lakefront.

Evidently this expansion denial is old news as Miss Fortune was on it earlier this year.
(Guess I missed that edition)

The minutes from the meeting and the neighbors complaints are very telling. I wonder if they know it is a Scientology scam and the clients are running wild because they are encouraged to do so? Very funny also how AFR's neighbors can't tell staff from clients.

And supposedly AFR invites the neighbors to "tour the facility" and to a picnic every year ( except the neighbors don't come).  They don't let complaining family on the property to tour the facility citing HIPAA laws.  And they want the neighbors to come in?  Me thinketh not.
