They ticketed people who honked in support and arrested random people and took them in the direction of the Scientology center.



UPDATE #1: The guy you see being taken across the street with the green face paint has, and this is CONFIRMED, been Released. (a few hours ago actually.) Friends of his bailed him out. Bail was set at $763.00. He has two charges against him, but it's expected that they'll be dropped the second he enters the courtroom.

Dekalb police step up the repressive factor -- Suddenly! Arrests out of the blue.

They were arrested for:
1)Protesting without a permit. Which we were told repeatedly by them before the event that we did NOT need a permit.
2)Causing offensive or hazardous conditions.

Thats quite disturbing actually.

Would be interested to find out what they arrested the two guys for - did they insult a cop or what? So many camera's there someone must have got the incident? As for why they ticketed the car that honked the horn - probably a technicality, but pointless nontheless.

Did the COS pay for a police detail? Seems a large contingent of "visible" police to deak with a relatively small crowd.

The second Vid ID is malformed, and won't play. Please repost it, would be interested to see it.

Please also bear in mind the following from the ATS : Terms and Conditions



1i.) Videos: While we do allow video embedding, as long as the content of the video meets the requirements of these Terms and Conditions, you will not embed a video with no commentary from you that describes the video and why it is germane to the topic of the thread.


A little personal commentary on the vids is good for the soul, gives folks a reason to spend their time looking at them if they are interested and adds to the discussion

Dear Anonymous,

My name is Operating Thetan Active Humanoid Bobby Slavoch, and I hate every single one of you Supressive Persons. Promoting excessive honking and shouting through a loudspeaker is noise pollution and is illegal. That is why you were arrested and your clan of miscrient criminal driver supporters were taken into the center for an auditing exam to see if they would become members or be arrested. Four of them were converted.

Our insiders in the Atlanta PD Riot Squad coerced the rest of the team through our Fair Game policy of raping their wives and burning down their houses. They work for us now. We will find you wherever you are.

Thanks for listening
All hail Xenu!

Sorry, I don't see an edit button so I will explain a little bit here.

Protesters are standing outside a Scientology center outside in support of anonymous. Atlanta police are in RIOT gear on the other side of the street, and it's alot of them, for this what seems to be a non-violent protest. They ticketed someone who honked at the crowd, also, they arrested someone from the crowd and escorted him to the center.

The Second video is a man who went to talk to the police and inform them of various things.

Also, the guy was charged with Protesting without a permit. Which we were told repeatedly by them before the event that we did NOT need a permit.
and causing offensive or hazardous conditions.

The crazy thing is they are just standing on the other side of the street. Also, the police stated they didn't feel at ease, because some of the crowd participants had a mask on their face.

Really not surprised by this at all. Especially from Dekalb. Might want to consider insisting on a permit next time. I think the "war" has just been stepped up a notch.

Huh, gee whiz....maybe the anonymous organization really is infiltrated by FBI/NSA and caused the Dekalb police to get a touch nervous about some of the rhetoric on their forums and website?

And, just get the permit....don't trust any bureaucratic representative to get the facts straight. Wearing masks and hiding features is usually sure to put police on edge also.

Why is everyone bashing scientology? It doesn't matter if you consider them to be a cult or a religion, all man made religions start out as cults. People have a right to believe in whatever they want to believe in, regardless of how stupid you may consider their religion to be. I'm tired of hearing that they brainwash people, make you give them all your money, torture you, blah blah blah. Name one mainstream religion that has not done exactly that over the centuries. If you're dumb enough to be taken advantage of in such a manner then I really can't feel sorry for you. If your religion abuses, tortures, takes all your money and breaks your family apart, then that just makes you a weak minded moron. Don't worry, there are millions of people out there just like you.

I do believe my little rant here is related to the thread. From watching the videos, why are there so many fat cops. I don't get that, don't you have to stay in shape to be a cop?

Now why everyone is bashing Scientology, I don't know. I posted the video because I was more enraged why there were so many cops in all out riot gear for this non-violent protest.

On the topic of fat cops, lol. I just can't believe that they don't have consequences for said cops. I mean what if they loose a suspect in a foot race, they say, well I lost 'em.

Thanks for posting this!! I have what we call input overload today!!

Oh man so much info came out from yesterday that I have no time to get into all this today.. Or even begin to respond to everything I have going on here.

But I can say this is none sense! Arresting peaceful group of Anonymous!
I have much reading and stuff to do after I get out of work tonight.
I will flag and star this thread so I can get back with you later.

Everything reported clear over here in Clearwater. No arrests made. Im not happy to see these Darth Vader looking riot cops being bullies.

Im not even going to respond to jitombe.. As his negtive points here show me he has nothing worth while even reading. And is just an ATS Troll.. Dont feed him. And he will go away or be banned very soon.

that's what happens when you have no organized leader. it's called chaos and what happens is, Joe doesn't get the permit because jim didn't tell him to and Jim didn't tell him to because Fred didn't tell Jim to look up and see what is needed for a protest. Oddly enough, I think permit to protest is one of those things everyone knows you need as the police are going to look for any reason possible to disperse a, potentially, unruly crowd. Having the proper paperwork is rule number one.

No doubt but is it really against the law, as the cop said? sounds a bit ridiculous that you can't walk around with your face covered, if you so desire. I can understand it being a law that you must obey a police officer when he requests that you remove your mask/covering so that he might see who he's talking to but seriously, no masks/coverings allowed? sounds a bit much, no?

You are very correct there! Each town has different laws. It was important for all those who attended look up your zones laws.

Here in Clearwater it is forbidden to wear masks. But bandanas and medical masks are 100% legal and okay.
These cops are just working for CoS IMO. And trying to get them to expose who they are so CoS can take action vs them!!

ITs not aginst the law to hide your face like they did. The cop was simply siding with CoS. Yet each zone has their own laws. And some places yes its illeagal to wear face masks.. But other ways of hiding your face is 100% leagal!!!

Agin I have very limited time here today.. And I wish I had more time to really dig into this!! Ive been at the forefront of this battle for many many years.. Way before Anon was around! And Im happy to see these people gathering for such events!
But next time around they are going to need permits, and speakers.

Theres going to come a time where many of us are going to have to be less than anonymous to fight CoS.

Being prepared and knowing the law is key!

The people who claim they are just thugs or cowards that wear masks serintly dont understand how CoS treat those who speak aginst them.

Take a look at what they did to my friend Shawn Lonsdale.. And you will see why people want to hide who they are from these people.

Fair game is also in play.. You think these people want to put their family in harms way? Do you think they want their faces posted all over town, claiming they are child molestors, ect ect?

Heck I know I sure wouldnt want that kind of slander.. And thats why I have always kept my distance from protests. But I have been doing my part as messanger, and talking to everyone I know about this.
And sharing my knowledge with you all here on ATS!

Im glad to know many of you are in the know! And sad to see those who dont have a clue chime in like they think they know. When in reality they make themselfs seem a bit out of the loop.

I understand its alot of reading,and time spent to understand why anon is doing the things they are doing. But its worth the time you take to understand why..

Actually, yes it is. Granted, it is a leftover from anti KKK legislation....but many places still have, on the books, laws banning "masked gatherings in public places".....

I won't argue about whether or not the law makes any sense....after all many state Supreme Courts and the Federal Supreme Court have argued it; and they have a much better grasp of the law than I.

I will offer my opinion that wearing a mask to a protest is like waving a red flag in the bull pen.

Here is a video of some Scientology reps. verbally attacking a cameraman.

Thought I'd post this, to show both sides.

Basically, a guy wants to attend one of there free concert/venue. A security guard comes to him and says he can't be there. Then a cop gets involved and says no you can't. Then, some of the Scientology supporters come up to him and start attacking him, verbally.

Wrong!!! Each zone has their own laws.. I suggest you do some more research before you jump into the pool here and say you know when you are clearly saying what you think you know!!!

Actually no its not!!! I know my zone laws.. And yes its aginst the law here, but not in other places.. And no its not aginst the law to hide your face in Clearwater. And many other places.
Yet wearing masks if you are under the age of 17 will get you in trouble.

Yet wearing fake beards and the likes is perectly legal!

jitombe- sorry I dont deal with Trolls.

How are my comments negative, ok maybe a little bit but come on. I agree there were too many cops out there in riot gear for what appeared to be a peaceful protest and I would like to know what happened to the people that were hauled away. Maybe there were taken to the basement of the complex and tortured, I don't know and I hope that's not the case.

My whole problem is with the people who go out of their way to make all scientologist look bad. I am sure there are leaders within their church that are abusive/corruptive/hypocritical bastards, only interested in furthering their power. Point is if you are on the receiving end of their abuse, then it sucks for you. Like I said, there are millions of other suckers out there dumb enough to get taken advantage of and I can't feel sorry for them. I am not a scientologist, I just don't like to see them being singled out as the only cult/religion that ever screwed over it's own people.

I won't comment on the other stuff. But, I am pretty sure, my opinion, that in the direction that they walked the guy in he had to face some of the people he was protesting against. Otherwise, why would they walk him that way and not send him off in a squad car. But he was charged with:

1)Protesting without a permit. Which we were told repeatedly by them before the event that we did NOT need a permit.
2)Causing offensive or hazardous conditions.

How did you so badly misread my post, respond, and get a star?

In fact, you turned around in the same post and confirmed what I said....many places have those laws on the books. At least that's what I gathered from your nearly incomprehensible post.

But, thanks for contributing.

P.S.....is it trolling to repeatedly refer to a poster as a 'troll'?
