A group of Human and Civil Rights activists working across America have faced repeated (similar) physical assaults by members of The Church of Scientology in San Francisco, Battle Creek, Michigan, Toronto, Ontario and internationally.  These pattern of attacks have come to be known as the "Catch Me If You Can Tech" by Scientology critics; said to be part of a new Scientology method in dealing with street protests.

A Scientologist will first call the police and falsely report being chased by protesters. They then sneak up on an unsuspecting activist, "punch them in the face" and run away.  One such occurrence (caught on video) in Los Angeles, California showed the crazed man admitting to an unprovoked attack and being arrested.

Another case on Sunday, October 26th near Golden Era Studio; A young man & a female friend were lured in to bushes by Scientology Security Guards and beaten.  A Riverside Sheriffs officer arrived and arrested the male victim on "charges of trespassing."  An investigation is underway.

One such remonstrance on L Ron Hubbard Way received major media coverage and drew international interest after a resident of L. Ron Hubbard Way and free speech activist spoke before the Los Angeles City Council to ask for a denial to Scientology's motion to close the public street. The Church of Scientology sought to continue having private parties every week, all year long. This was the first time in two years that residents realized they had legislative recourse and means to end the loud noise, driveway blockages, threats and harassment they had endured.

In a Upland, Hollywood protesting (over the death of Uwe Stuckenbrock), a young man was punched in the head while two witnesses filmed his fleeing attacker and awaited the police. The victim stated, "There was absolutely no provocation on my part. The guy came from behind me, punched me and tried to get away."

Scientologist attorney Kendrick Moxon was on hand and demanded cameras to stop recording or he would be forced to sue. There was an attempt to lie to the LAPD. The attacker had called them and reported "being chased by Anonymous." If not for the video tape, there would have been no evidence to collaborate the story. Luckily the criminal was arrested.

Uwe Stuckenbrock, was a German national and former International Security Chief of Scientology, who died October 8 of multiple sclerosis while in a Scientology compound on L. Ron Hubbard Way.  Stuckenbrock was undergoing a form of Scientology punishment called RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force), which includes reduced rations and hard labor, meted out to the elite Scientology Sea Organization members for perceived crimes against Scientology.

The Church of Scientology media releases have encouraged a hatred against the demonstrators linking them with an online hacking group called 4Chan and defining them as terrorists, thieves, cyber-punks, murderers, etc.

One such statement from John Carmichael, the president of the Church of Scientology in New York City, falsely accused the Civil & Human Rights Protesters 'Anonymous' with an involvement in the November 2007 shooting at Jokela High School, in which a young man named Pekka-Eric Auvinen shot and killed nine people, including himself.

My friends call me Kate; I enjoy traveling, writing, etc. I'm here to assist in the balance of truth in news reports - especially the sensationalism of Scientology, their critics and their protesters.
