Scientology yesterday and today: Reports from Mark Bunker and Dennis Erlich - 2014-08-29
Filmmaker Mark Bunker was dubbed "Wise Beard Man" by the Anonymous movement in 2008. We've been reading Mark's observations about Scientology since the late 1990s, and we're eagerly awaiting his documentary about Scientology, "Knowledge Report."
Bunker's recent return to Clearwater to live has us very intrigued. He told us he was going to approach the city's new police chief about the infamous injunction that defines how protesters and the Church of Scientology can interact downtown, and we told him we wanted to know how it went. So he sent us over a full report! How did it go, Mark?
MARK: I attended Wednesday night's meet-and-greet with Clearwater's new police chief, Dan Slaughter (pictured). It turned out to be a rather small affair. The meeting room was set up for a large crowd but only five locals attended along with former mayor Rita Garvey and three others from the police department, so Chief Slaughter gathered as all around in a circle for an intimate chat.
