BRAD HALSEY, 1957-2014 - 2014-03-07
On Sunday, Brad Halsey took his own life. He was 56.
Many of you know him for the 11-minute video he posted last year to YouTube, calling out Tom Cruise for the way Scientology was declaring people "suppressive persons" — excommunicating them, sometimes for no reason at all.
Brad was also a critic of the Underground Bunker. He had left the Church of Scientology because of his unhappiness with its leader, David Miscavige, but he still believed strongly in L. Ron Hubbard and the ideas behind Scientology. So he would skewer us, usually at our Facebook page, about the way Hubbard's ideas tend to be criticized here. We really got into it with him a few times, trading barbs and zingers — and he usually ended up calling us "bro" in a sarcastic manner.
