First person: Four Scientologists have been shot, and you're being sent to audit the pain away - 2018-06-05
Sunny Pereira's experiences in Scientology continue to knock us out. Once again, she's written up an incident that stunned us for what she's been through. And we'll say up front, we condemn in the strongest terms the despicable act carried out by the severely mentally ill man at the center of this tale. We don't care what you think of Scientology, it is never OK to harm Scientologists or their facilities. But in the wake of this horrible crime, a young woman in Los Angeles was parachuted in to help, and we have her remarkable story.
I ended up in Portland three times, all for Scientology catastrophes. The first time was the Portland Crusade in 1985, the second is this story, the Portland shooting, and the last time, well. I'll get to that.
In 1996 I was posted as a Case Supervisor (a "C/S") for CC Int, the Hollywood Celebrity Centre. That meant that I was always in an office cut off from the outside world. I was not supposed to mingle or socialize with staff, or anyone else I might be responsible for C/Sing — overseeing the counselling of Scientologists, which known as "auditing." This was Hubbard policy, set in stone.
