snip My, you seem to have a remarkable knowledge about prisons. Personal experience? Scientologists seem to go to prison at a remarkable rate, something like a hundred times that of the general public. There were nearly 200 of them in the federal prisons a few years ago. This isn't a large number, but there are not that many scientologists. And the higher they go, the more of them go to prison. I remember reading that over half of the high IAS donors have been found guilty of fraud within a few years of obtaining this distinction. Remember class action stock fraud of Steve Fishman? Then we have Mr. Cook in Arizona, big donor, 1.8 million, with a 40 million investment fraud and Reed Slatkin, ghod knows how big that fraud is. For minor stuff we have the laundry balls/disks and the connections to ATG. I am sure others could extend the list, I can't keep track of the dozen or more outside the US. It really makes sense that the French and a bunch of other countries don't want this social support system for criminals to get a foothold in their countries. I was talking to a long time scientologist at the Toronto picket last night. He said that scientologists are easy marks and are preyed on by scam artists inside and out. So, besides social support for fraud criminals, scientology is a training ground. Keith Henson
