Since 2009 the usual hate crimers and Anons (same difference) were trying to glue a tragic suicide of a boy on the Church of Scientology and Scientologists. Unsurprisingly it now turns out that there was no relation at all, just as the accused have said all along. As the judge in the case put it, the accusation was “A MERE HYPOTHESIS that is without essential support based upon reasoned and direct inference from the available evidence.”
To me it was clear that the case was bogus the moment I heard who was pushing the case. But the general public does not have this interest in background connections and – unfortunately – nor does the “media.” One would think that journalists have a minimal ethics code to follow and actually they do. The Society of Professional Journalist ethics code says: “Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.” Sure. How courageous is it to pound on a grief-stricken father who just lost his son to a suicide? How fair is it to repeat online rumors and conclusions from rabid anti-Scientologists? How clever is it to follow an obvious spin campaign instead of doing actual research?
Let’s have a look at the people who pushed the hate campaign:
1) Anonymous – attention whores, paid and unpaid dupes in the name of hate and persecution of minorities. Not much needs to be said about these assholes. For those who don’t know what I am talking about, read here.
4) Scott Pilutik – former legal assistant to Ken Dandar (the lawyer in the above case) and in bed with a couple of anti-Scientology campaigners (like Touretzky above). Did he think there was money in for him? Lame.
5) Mark Bunker – since 2008 the Anons are drooling over him because he took over the thinking for them. They call him Wise Beard Man. Well, Bunker, nomen est omen, is a hardhead for sure but not for humanitarian reason. My guess is that he wouldn’t be able to make any money if he wasn’t selling his services to brain-dead dupes. A vicious circle that might leave him with cancer in his testicles (psychosomatically anything can happen, just saying).
Anyway, got to cut it short, here is what the Courthouse News Service has to say about the “Kyle Brennan” Case: http://www.courthousenews.com/2011/12/20/42410.htm
