Scientology cult uses "fair game" tactics against disabled cult critic
by Dr. Lilly von Marcab
Friday Jun 13th, 2008 8:57 AM
The Scientology cult has retaliated against a prominent critic in Plymouth, England by filing a false police report of "assault," and as well as reporting his cultivation of medical cannabis.

Stu "Killdozer" Wyatt is a notorious "suppressive person" in Plymouth, England. Because of his health condition, he rides a motorised scooter. Stu frequently protests the pathetic Scientology "stress-test" tables of Plymouth, shooting rather amusing video footage all the while as he asks tough questions of embarrassed, mixed-up Scilons. Stu is also a longtime campaigner for medical cannabis. This has been well-known to the police, and up to now, they have left him alone.

On June 12, in response to a complaint by Plymouth's "Church" of Scientology, Plymouth police came to Stu's home and arrested him for "assault." The Scientology complaint was based on an incident that occurred on June 3, which Stu documented on videotape (it can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njEioJRDFLs). Fortunately for Stu, there was no assault, as the tape will show. For some reason, however, Plymouth police decided to be tough guys about the cannabis, and took Stu to jail. Here is Stu's message to the anti-Scientology "Enturbulation.org" forum:

Ok - so where shall I start?

8:30am, I get a knock on the door. I answer in my boxers, and find 4 police outside asking me by name. They invite themselves, tell me I am under arrest for assault and proceed to search my flat. I ask them what they are searching for, and they mention video, so I give them all 21 cult watch tapes and my camcorder. They also notice cannabis in my flat..... :(

They were here for an hour or two.... They took all cannabis that they could fine (a lot - mostly trimmings and wastage that I was going to use for cream).... I cooperated with the police 100%, and willingly showed them where everything was.

What they took:

1 camcorder.
21 tapes (all the cultwatch masters....) :(
My beloved vapureyes vapouriser
My 250W lighting system and electronic timer
One huge sack load of wastage trim (that I was going to use to mass produce cream)
The remains of 4 plants (long since stripped of anything smokable)
1/2 oz or thereabouts of smokeable White Widow trim (top leaves and budlets)
Various little bags and pots of crap phosphorous weed (unsmokeable, unuseable)( that I forgot was there.
All my ziplock bags
All the silver foil in my growroom, as well as any leaves they saw on the floor.

Anyway... I was arrested (but not handcuffed), taken into the van, and driven to the police station at 9.30ish.... I was booked in, and chucked in a bare cell (just toilet and matress... nothing to read, nothing to see). Apart from the fingerprinting/dna and interview, I was in there until 9.00am today....

I was only fed once (pastie and a cup of tea).... I was denied making a phonecall for a few hours (when I needed to speak to someone who I knew would be home)... I was also denied a duty solicitor that evening when I wanted to ask questions about the case (being told "You'll see him tomorrow"). When desperate for water (I was relapsing and had a 'fever' of sorts), they refused answering the intercom for 1.5 hours... and I had to result to banging on the cell door with my walking stick and screaming through the gap until someone answered. I was also not offered any washing facilities.....

Anyway - the interview: I was honest and polite.... The first part was about my alleged assault on Sandra on June 3rd. Both her and Ryan had written statements saying that I had driven into her, hit her with my stick and run over her toes. The police will see on the video that there is no actual evidence of any assaults (basically - as they did not happen)....

Then it goes onto the cannabis, and again, I was open and honest.

The resulting factor of all of this is that I now have a "PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT" letter stating that I cannot have any contact with Scientologists for 12 months, or they could simply arrest me and throw me into jail. We are waiting to speak to a police chief over this, to find out if this infringes on my legal right to protest and free speech.

I also got charged with possession with the intent to supply, and cultivation with the intent to supply.

I was refused bail that evening, and was kept in overnight.

Zero sleep. Stinking to high heaven. Hungry and relapsing....

I was in court at 10am this morning, where there was no mention of any harrassment, but obviously the cannabis charges stuck. I pleaded "Not Guilty" to cultivation with the intent to supply and "No Plea" to posession with the intent to supply (or the other way round. I cant remember)....

The case was then sent to the Crown Court, where I will have to appear at 9.45am on August 8th.... The worse case scenario is that I get 14 years in jail but I personally believe that I will not get a custodial sentence... Time will tell. But IM OUT!

Luckily, I was given bail. The PROSECUTION solicitor actually stated that he was surprised that I was not given automatic bail the night before given my medical condition and that I had zero arrests or convictions to my name.

So yeah.... Im finding out if I am going to be allowed to protest, but there is every chance that I may have to step back and concentrate more on global protesting/videos and helping moreso with enturb moderating.

Anway - Im fucked. Ive had very little sleep for days and a lot of stress.

The term Fair Game is used to describe various aggressive policies and practices carried out by the Church of Scientology towards people and groups it perceives as its enemies. In written policies dating from as early as the mid-1950s, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard told his followers to take a punitive line towards perceived opponents. In 1955, he wrote "the law can be used very easily to harass ... The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage, rather than to win – if possible, of course, ruin [the target] utterly". In 1967, Hubbard extended this policy as follows:

"ENEMY — SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."

FUCKERS!

I hope that Plymouth Police undergoes a severe reformation. And soon.

This crossed so many lines, I don't know where to start, so I won't.

It's time for severe change all over the place, starting with changing that ruling so Stu can protest again. If they refuse that, I quit. Not protesting, no, I would never do that, especially not after this.

I will quit the Criminal Justice System. I will look into what I need to do so that I can encourage reform inside the CJS's of all places, so that this shit never happens again. No more making defenseless protesters into the evil enemy while the DANGEROUS CULT gets off scott free.

No fucking more.

Scientology founder Hubbard was such a coward that he hid during some twenty years. Since he was a criminal that the tax people and justice would have liked to get, it's not a surprise. What's no surprise either is the fact that there is a fantastic demonstration of Hubbard-scientology methods to trap justice: Fabricating lots of false attestations and declarations and affidavits so as to counter the many complaints against the cult crimes.

Cheers to Stu for your brave efforts! CoS's days are numbered... it's only a matter of time before people simply stop joining due to all the bad press. After all, who wants to join a group that are the laughing stock of the world? Hubbard was a drug-addicted con artist who birthed a legion of self-perpectuating criminal grifters. What a tragedy for people who have been duped into giving money to their pathetic "religion."

Yes sure, the cult uses lots of ways to try to attack its critics. I was not yet an SP declared guy that the cult was already after me since I was criticizing some of the insane prices, some of the insane techniques (particularly regarding stats and some techniques), and they were after me despite the fact that our org was one of the best running in all europe!
Scientology can't use its own stupid orders and rules, because they are contradictory with many others, but the cult tries nevertheless to attack anyone daring to be noisy enough to be heard.

Seems to me that Stu really needs a reality adjustment. You're going on and on about the Scientology "fair game policy", while you're committing illegal acts (the weed). You are labeled an SP, and have they shot you? No. Have they run you over? No. Have they poisoned you? No. The church is suppossed to just roll over and welcome your hatred and attacks? You seem to be the one "fair gaming" them, and then you complain because they turn an enemy of theirs into the policy and you get busted for your illegal weed? Grow up! If you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Maybe there are some people or groups that you can go aggressively protest and "stir the pot" about who will just lay down and take it. Obviously, Scientology is one will with spit back. From what I've seen, they don't go out and attack people at random, they don't attack people who don't attack them first. They don't murder people. They look for and expose criminal behavior where they can. Again, grow up. If it's this important to you to dedicate your life to fighting Scientology, then at least be responsible enough to not play the victim card when you're busted for your own illegal actions.

I beg to differ, Gary: Reads to me like Stu took this on the chin, He knew the kind of organization he was taking on, went ahead anyway and is now paying the price. He's gone down like a martyr while the corporation that calls itself the Church of Scientology has demonstrated yet again that while it complains of being attacked by terrorists, it uses terror in kind - of being "deprived of property or injured by any means... tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."

The CoS never seems to defend its policies, apologize for any identified transgressions (eg. Operation Snow White) or resolve to make changes based on them. It presents a smiling face to the world while its agents privately attack its critics without mercy.

Other organizations that were just as deceptive and opaque turned out to be shining shells, riddled to the core with corruption, crime and misery, and when they broke under the blows of intellect, sacrifice and bravery, their victims cheered. I see the same happening to the CoS, and soon.
