DOX: Sworn testimony that a U.S. state was too afraid to take on the Church of Scientology - 2017-11-29
What is it about the Church of Scientology that turns law enforcement and other government agencies into quivering cubes of human Jell-O?
How many times have we seen it? In 2009, the FBI launched an investigation of allegations of human trafficking at Scientology's Sea Org bases. But after gathering reams of evidence from dozens of former Sea Org members, that investigation was dropped in 2010 without explanation. (We have a theory as to why the Justice Department lost its nerve.)
And in 2012, there seemed to be another golden opportunity for the government to take on Scientology. That July, a young woman named Stacy Murphy died at Narconon Arrowhead, Scientology's drug rehab flagship operation, after the deaths of two other patients — Gabriel Graves and Hillary Holten — in a period of only nine months.
