    Scientology facilities in Tennessee closed after police find patients

    "being held against their will" this is some horror movie like stuff going on

    A group of psychiatric facilities owned and run by the Church of Scientology in Tennessee has been closed after local police found some patients being held against their will.

    The Cannon Courier, out of Cannon County, Tenn. and nearby the Scientology facilities, reports that the buildings are now permanently closed and three suspects have been charged.


    “[We] would like to make the general public of [the] county aware that the Scientology facilities are closed and [no longer] operating,” read a statement released by the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department.
    Police discovered the facilities, which were no more than tiny cabins and one double-wide trailer, concealed in the wilderness and heavily secured. They described the scene as “a gated, makeshift paddock secured externally with a steel latch.”
    The authorities found out about the cabins when a man inside managed to call 911, and when police arrived the man was “looking out through a Plexiglas window.”
    The unidentified man told police that he had been held in the facility against his will for nine months, and had been treated with unknown medications. According to officers who witnessed the scene, it was impossible for the man to leave the cabin, and all he was provided was a single bed with a single sheet and a tiny bathroom, which was the “only room with a light.”

    After assessing the scene, the man was taken to an emergency room at a local hospital for care. When police later returned to the cabin and trailer armed with a search warrant, they discovered people hastily packing up and moving out all contents of the facilities.
    The front gate’s large locking mechanism was also removed. Later on, when the police searched another reported Scientology location, they discovered yet another “patient,” this time a female. She too was transported to a local hospital and her family notified.

    Well-known Scientology reporter Tony Ortega has been sounding the horn on these covert facilities for some time, citing examples of other people who have allegedly been held against their will — including severely mentally ill Scientologists — and who’ve suffered mental breakdowns in similar rural Tennessee facilities.


    The charged suspects are Dennis Flamond and Hans Snyder Lytle, who both pleaded guilty to two counts of false imprisonment, and Marc Vallieres, who was charged with two felonies of facilitation to kidnapping.
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    If Trump's and the Republican Right's plans come to fruition, "churches" like these will have taxpayer money to fund their "schools" where they will indoctrinate and brainwash their "congregations" under the guise of "education". The process was officially begun with the (yet another) executive order that he signed the other day ordering the IRS to back off and let the religious institutions pretty much do whatever they want in terms of political involvement.
