I wish there were more cops like this guy, not all of them are ego maniac power control freaks. It's nice that people can protest against whatever they want. Nothing better than spending a few hours wasting your breath, hoping that someone will listen to your blabbering, thinking that you are somehow making a difference. What do I know though, I am just a troll. I had no idea I was a troll but turns out I am, what do trolls eat anyway, do I eat newborn babies, the other other white meat?

Agreed. But, we don't hear about THESE cops, we only hear the negative of it. I just wish there was a thread to post all the good stuff, but then again, it doesn't have much spunk as a cop beating someone on camera.

They're bringing the fight to the Internet. They made their own documentary, a summary of the last two months "death threats, harassment, vandalism, website attack and bomb threats". They gently skipped the demonstration yesterday and the 10th of February. The problem? The documentary (also a DVD) has a higher quality bomb threat than YouTube.

What would you expect from a county where you can drive 10 miles out of the city and people are shooting beer cans in their back yards. I sware, there are churchs just outside of Atlanta who's members dance around with Rattle snakes draped on their shoulders -- all in the name of God. They keep them in a cooler until they are needed. To make them active they warm them up with a portable heater. Holy Rollers they call themselves.

Then, you have the 'Church of End of Days'. These fanatics drape 10 watches on their arms in order to accurately predict the end of the world.

Then there is the church of 'Divine Happenings.' This church's mantra is even a wart, hangnail or even certain forms of flatchulence are heavenly inspired.

Please! Georgia is so backward it's painful.

I actually find this all a little disturbing. There is nothing wrong with protesting against a cult. or anything for that matter.
I mean, I have to listen to a bunch of "so called Christians" protesting military burials. Yeah, thats what Jesus wanted.
I already created a thread concerning this little box of theirs (fake), and I am tired of hearing people refer to this as a religion. Self -help program maybe, but not a religion.
I wonder if the gov't plans on using scientology to push the one world religion. Aliens "appear", confirm that they were beaming signals into Hubbard's head. Voila!
I believe this protest group needs to have a few volunteer leaders who immediately begin recording all actions against themselves. Then at least they could protest!

I wonder if Suri Cruise is the anti-christ?

This Is How A Cop Should Act To A Protest!!!

Only 20 seconds long.




A true American! I don't wish more COPS acted like this, I just wish EVERYONE acted like this... "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

That police officer is doing his job, nothing more and nothing less..
"To protect and serve" He is serving the public by protecting them so they don't get hit by a car.

Other police officers seem to be imposing their own will or the will of their superiors instead of simply protecting and serving.

All in all, a great cop! Want to shake his hand!

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?
Yup, it really is against the law. Many communities have such a law. Why? So they can tack on another charge when people rob a convenience store or a bank wearing a mask. I remember just this last Halloween how there were many stories in the media that, technically, trick-or-treating with a mask on was against the law, because you're wearing something with the intent to hide your identity.

Here's one such story: www.local6.com...

I believe the goal of Anon is not to bash the belief system of Scientology, but rather, their methods of gaining new membership, information suppression, and some, specific doctorine that make you scratch your head and shudder a little (for instance, Suppressive Persons (anyone who disagree's with Scientology) should be culled.)

There are always two sides to every situation, have all members claiming to be Anon acted the way they should have? Probably not. Has Scientology done some seriously shady things that warrent a real and in depth investigation, in my opinion, yes.

It's strange that these people are so up in arms over Scientology, yet they don't seem at all concerned with other religions. Are the beliefs of Scientology any more strange than those of the most popular religions of today?

No offense to the Catholics who read this, but look at the Catholic church for a great example. They want 10% of your money to be tithed to the Church. They believe that during the Eucharist (Communion) the bread that is distributed to the congregation is the body of Christ. Some even see it as a LITERAL change from bread to body! And the same goes for the wine turning into the blood of Christ! The Catholic church has allowed thousands of children to be sexually molested over the years while their own clergy, the very people who the members of the congregation trusted with the eternal salvation of their SOULS, let the sexual activities take place by turning a blind eye. This church believes it can dictate whether or not unborn and very young babies will go to heaven or not. They believe that the congregation must confess their sins to a priest who can prescribe a certain number of Hail Marys and Forgive Me Fathers that the confessor must say before they will be forgiven for the sins they confessed.

It's much easier to see just how ridiculous the vast majority of religions are when you're not part of one. When you can see them from afar, so to speak, you get a good idea of how they all try to accomplish the same goals through a variety of questionable means such as programming, gentle brainwashing, superstitions, spreading fear, and convincing members to stop thinking for themselves.

I am in no way a supporter of Scientology, rather I believe that a person can have a very healthy and beneficial spiritual life on their own. But if people are going to go out of their way to protest one religion, they should consider doing the same to all religions.

My feeling is they are "after" Scientology simply because it's an easy target. Less entrenched than the Catholic church, Islam, Presybterian, etc....and admittedly, a bit strange.

It's wearisome to me that they would waste their efforts and social indignities on this sort of campaign. They center their efforts around the Internet and social networking....have what looks like a good number of technically savvy contacts.....maybe they should quit goofing around and expose some child porn rings operating on the Internet. Actually be useful and truly altruistic. Maybe they could mobilize charitable drives to feed a village in Africa or something....

What a huge waste of human effort. Farts in whirlwinds.

That funny because you never hear or see cops arresting any scientology person when they start harassing people about their religion and that they should join. I know this guy here in Vancouver (EX friend) who repeatedly harasses me and my other friends as well as complete strangers on the virtues of scientology and that people who aren't on board with them are the lowest forms of life on the planet. How will we ever be saved when L. Ron Hubbard comes back from space to rescue us if we haven't been indoctrined into the folds? How can would we ever be able to help someone on the side of the road with a flat tire if we're not one of them? So far EVERY scientologist I have met has been one of the most creepiest, know it all, self appointed/absorbed, delusional psycho I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. You would think after the Jim Jones fiasco, that cults would be illegal. They are the people the cops should be worrying about after all, they are the ones wearing the masks so to speak and hiding their true selves from the public with all their secrecy mumbo jumbo.

So why stay anonymous? You can claim anything anonymously. And I don't think it makes any particular difference. I know of at least one ex-Scientologist on these forums that seems to be a well adjusted individual...may be a bit anxious maybe.

Fine, spread the word....their methods and philosophy may be odd and possibly anti-social....but masked protests at Scientology buildings? Juvenile perjoratives using an offensive term for homosexuals? I have a touch of Libertarian running through me....if you want to join Scientology, knock yourself out....myself, I can make my own decisions.

It is a mis-focused social activity that takes advantage of the 'coolness' factor found in some cultures and on the Internet. Little more than cyberbullies that have found the "odd" kid in the school and are having some fun with him now.

In short...it's still a waste of human effort. Offset what you think is Scientology's social damage with mitigating social repair....prevent kids from smoking.....find clean drinking water for developing countries.....damn near anything has more nobility and purpose than chasing this stupid religion around.

I think we're pretty much on the same page. Scientology is bad and should be fought, but I'm not so sure anonymous is doing the best job they could of doing it. Also, you're right in stating that Scientology really isn't even all that significant when it boils down to it.

So your ex-friend's a dick. Fine, be done with him. And being repeatedly harassed is more a problem with you than him. I, for one, don't get repeatedly harassed. It takes once.....and once only.

Hence the EX friend status and the only reason I let him get away with it for a while was because he WAS a FRIEND but it just got to a point after a while that even after telling him I did not agree nor care to hear any more of it and he still kept shoving in my face, did I make the decision to not talk to him anymore and told him the reason. Still didn't stop him from trying.

I think requiring a permit to protest is constricting on civil liberties. I was unaware of this, why should you have to seek government permission to voice your opinion.

This country has us by the balls, its so sad.

While it's true the Bill of Rights specifically states we have the right to assembly....it does not say such an assembly can block traffic, building entrance and exits, nor can it be violent or disruptive.

Just get a permit. Consider it a method of "scheduling" a protest. It allows the local authorities, as much as they may be hated, to be forewarned that a protest is planned.

If the permit is denied....protesters have a choice. Either cancel the protest, or go ahead with it and prepare for the consequences. Basically, the issue of protest permits is one of simply bending over and taking it....but failing to take at least a slim advantage of what the bureaucracy offers, then bitchin' about it.....huh, doesn't quite sit right.

Anonymous apparently didn't even bother requesting a permit. That would probably have gone a long ways towards improving their credibility. Maybe they didn't get a permit because to do so would have shattered someone's anonymity?
