  1. Cease and Desist Letter from Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney to the Church of Scientology.

    For background, see Fred G. Haseney's prior article, "The church of scientology’s Campaign to Silence Me."

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT FROM BACKGROUND * * * * *

    At the same time, I’ve been repeatedly attacked, verbally, by a new neighbor who I’ll call “Pat.” Pat has, I discovered one day, an association with scientology (what exactly that association is I dared not ask). I can’t begin to describe the extent to which Pat has gone to disrupt my life, to discredit me to anyone and everyone who will listen. I even caught Pat in a lie one day. He has attempted to throw away property that I own. He has even destroyed my property (I found the evidence sitting at the bottom of a trash can). Pat’s actions mirror the Security Guards, which mirror that telephone call to the police, which also mirror Mrs. Weiland’s actions. They all want me “gone,” to “disappear,” to be tossed aside, completely and without care. Talk about being “Fair Gamed!”

    Church of Scientology International
    Office of Special Affairs
    6331 Hollywood Blvd., Suite 1100
    Hollywood, CA 90028

    Attention: Commanding Officer Linda Hamel

    Dear Ms. Hamel,

    On May 1, 2016, I was taking photographs of the street and buildings along L. Ron Hubbard Way (“LRH Way”). As you are undoubtedly aware from OSA’s extensive photographic efforts on public streets, LRH Way is a public street that is part of the City of Los Angeles. Taking photographs of LRH Way and the buildings along it is a constitutionally-protected right, as no one on a public street has any expectation of privacy.

    Despite this, the Church of Scientology called the Los Angeles Police Department and LAPD responded. Finding nothing unlawful, the Los Angeles Police Department departed, leaving me to continue with my photography. They did, however, advise me to take pictures at the Fountain Avenue end of LRH Way instead of the Sunset Boulevard end, where there were children participating in “Weekend Celebration.” The person who had called the police on me was concerned that I would be taking pictures of children.

    Subsequently, Ms. Janet Weiland, Vice President, Church of Scientology in Los Angeles, visited my residential housing and it is my understanding that in a conversation with the manager, she demanded that he “handle me” or “deal with me.” Having been a member of Scientology’s Sea Org, I understand this to be a direct threat by Scientology to the management where I live to either manage me by curtailing my photography on LRH Way or evict me. By seeking to deprive me of housing, Ms. Weiland and the Church of Scientology International have willfully violated my civil rights to housing. Specifically, Ms. Weiland acted to threaten and intimidate me in order to interfere with my enjoyment of a dwelling due to my exercise of free speech, which is a violation of my civil rights.

    If necessary, I will seek civil and criminal remedies against Ms. Weiland and the Church of Scientology International. To this end, I have contacted the Office of the City Attorney, Los Angeles, and am contacting the American Civil Liberties Union. I am also reaching out to local and national media regarding the actions of Ms. Weiland and the Church of Scientology International.

    Please be advised that I intend to continue to photograph LRH Way so as to document the dwindling number of people actually using the Scientology facilities around LRH Way. To continue doing so, before commencing, I intend to advise the Watch Commander at the Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police Department of my plans to legally photograph public areas,.

    I trust that I have made my intentions clear, that I will continue to legally photograph along LRH Way without interference from or harassment by Ms. Weiland, the Church of Scientology International, or any agents or private investigators of CSI.

    Sincerely,
    Fred G. Haseney

  4. The CoS used the fact that children were present to call the cops on Haseney. Even if he were photographing the children, they, just like adults, have no reasonable expectation of privacy in public.

    It's legal to photograph children who happen to be in public, and it's legal to sell those photographs, too.

    Suri Cruise is photographed all the time, the photographs are sold to tabloids, and no one bats an eye. She's not a public figure; she just has famous parents.

  9. The problem is that if one adopts such a rule, then the Church of Scientology can prevent any pictures being taken at any time simply by having children be present.

    The simple truth is that if children are in a public place, they can be legally photographed as long as the photographs are not themselves pornographic (i.e., if a child at a public beach pulled down his or her bathing suit, it would of course be illegal and improper to photograph the child in that state).

    Conversely, the fact that a child is present in a public place does not by itself prevent a photojournalist from taking a photograph of that public place. There is no "children are present" veto on public photography.

    For you to suggest based on the photographs sampled and linked above that photojournalist Fred G. Haseney had any prurient intent, or that any of the photographs are prurient or improper in any way, is: (1) delusional; (2) disgusting; and (3) clearly intended to dead-agent and silence photojournalist Fred G. Haseney.

  13. Orly?

    https://gettothechoppa.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/philadelphia-anti-psychiatry-protest/

    That's a wordpress blog that belongs to a Scientologist. That particular linked post includes photos of an anti-psychiatry protest. He photographed kids and put them on his blog.

    We aren't hitting the roof, because CiC is absolutely right. There's nothing wrong with photographing kids who happen to be in public.
  14. It depends.

    If, directly analogous to the pictures cross-posted and linked here, and posted on Jenny at LAX, an Anon or other protestor took their children to a protest of the Church of Scientology (as I've seen done), and a Scientology operative happened to photograph such children while photographing the protest or crowd scene, nobody here could or would be upset. It would be a picture of a protest, of a crowd, where children happened to be present in a public place.

    If, on the other hand -- and this would not surprise me at all -- Church of Scientology operatives took pictures of only children who were on otherwise unknown and relatively secluded private property (such as the backyard of a home) but in public view (e.g., the picture was taken from a public street) with the all too obvious intent of conveying the message "We know where you live, we know where your children are, we can get to you at any time" -- yes people here would probably be upset.

    The later scenario is not what happened here. Any children present were part of a larger scene being photographed. The locations of the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles, ASHO and AOLA (collectively Big Blue) are not exactly a secret. No reasonable person -- indeed, no minimally intelligent moron -- would think any threat was being conveyed.

    As any Scientologist would pretend to know, it is important to be able to differentiate between unlike situations.

    You, like the other (or same) poster above, is effectively urging a rule where the Church of Scientology could prevent any pictures being taken at any time simply by having children be present. That is not the law, and it is not reasonable.

    When a Scientologist gets a restraining order against a protestor, they run that Scientologist ragged trying to put them in the way of the protestor and claim the restraining order was violated: popping out of buildings, running after them, jumping out of bushes...

    Video showing Scientology dragging kids around the complex to use as human shields in a public place would be justifiable.

    No, I don't believe that's true.

    If a scientologist posted a picture of a street scene with some children in it - which I believe is what's being talked about in this case - then I don't think that anyone would notice, care, or consider it anything out of the ordinary.

    I think the situation in which we would be concerned is where we hear about Scientologists auditing children, or security checking children, or 'purifying' children, or indoctrinating children, or using child labour - then, yes, it's a big concern (I'd argue rightly so, although it sounds like you might disagree).

    Jenny at LAX: How Scientology Can Turn an Act of Vandalism into a Hate Crime

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    This is Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney with his eye on scientology. Instead of reporting from the Pacific Area Command Base (“PAC Base” or “Big Blue”), the so-called “church” of scientology’s West Coast headquarters, today I visited Hollywood. As announced in a letter that I sent to the Commanding Officer of the Church of Scientology International (“Scientology—Cease & Desist“), I needed to speak to the Desk Sergeant at the Los Angeles Police Department (“LAPD”) about scientology having reported me to the police (“How ‘May Day’ at Scientology’s PAC Base Turned into ‘Mayday’“). I’ve filed this blog in “Celebrity Centre International” (“CCI”) because the vandalism occurred on their billboard overlooking Franklin Avenue. I’ve also filed this under “Reconnecting the Disconnected and Declared,” because today we’ll see Sea Org (“SO”) members from the Hollywood Guaranty Building (“HGB”) roaming the streets of Hollywood, in search of things to touch and places to look at, as they participate in scientology’s Survival Rundown (“SR”).

    If you ever need to talk to a policeman about scientology’s activities at the Church of scientology Celebrity Centre International, located at 5930 Franklin Ave., in Los Angeles, then the Hollywood Community Police Station (“HCPS”) is the place to call. Located at 1358 Wilcox Ave., HCPS handles East Hollywood, Hollywood, Little Armenia, Los Feliz as well as Thai Town. HCPS’s jurisdiction extends as far east as Normandie Avenue, which is a few blocks west of PAC Base.

    The sergeant I spoke to thanked me for my blog and for the work I do in speaking out against scientology.

    SERGEANT: The stories I could tell you!
    FRED: Yes?
    SERGEANT: Like the time scientology turned a rather petty case of graffiti on their billboard over Franklin Ave. into something much, much bigger.

    The sergeant thought for a moment, trying to find exactly how to say what scientology had done.

    FRED: Did scientology try to turn it into an offense with the penalty of, say, deportation?
    SERGEANT: Almost! Scientology wanted to turn an act of vandalism into a hate crime, and more!

    Fred Haseney hit with a summons as Scientologist seeks restraining order

    By Tony Ortega, June 26, 2016

    Quote:

    Fred_Haseney-e1466914799815.jpg

    [At the ‘Battlefield Earth’ relaunch on June 14, Fred Haseney, holding the ‘Call Me’ sign, is confronted by Scientology operatives Sheila McDonald Bakker Chaleff and Ed Parkin while Phil Jones, right, looks on]

    Fred G. Haseney, a former Scientologist who has been documenting Scientology’s activities in Los Angeles with photography, was served papers yesterday which indicate that a church member is seeking a restraining order against him for stalking her.

    Scientology employee Beatriz Castro Macias, represented by Scientology’s in-house attorney, Kendrick Moxon, is seeking the restraining order because, she claims, Haseney followed her home after his protests against the church.

    HASENEYtro.jpg

    Haseney denies that he’s stalked or followed Macias, a person he doesn’t know by that name.

    “I have never followed her home and have no idea what she’s talking about. I’ve never gone to her place of work repeatedly and I’ve never stalked her there. Everything she has said is not truthful,” Haseney tells us. “I have only said ‘hello’ when she happened to walk by. Scientology and the Sea Org just don’t want me anywhere near PAC Base, and getting Beatriz to play along with their hijinks is just another bad thing that they’re going to be remembered for.”

    He noted that the home address Beatriz listed — the one she says Fred surveilled — is a well known Sea Org berthing in the area, a set of apartments owned by the church and known as the Anthony Building. He denies ever following her home to the building, or in any other way casing it like her complaint proposes.

  24. Scientology has a very long history of frivolous, contemptuous lawsuits worldwide based on lies.
    Scientology: ''What are your crimes?'' The list is endless.
    Scientology: ''What are your convictions?''

    Here's a few of the older ones, the courts need to hold Scientology accountable.............

    Scientology Convictions:

    1999: Greece: Scientologists found guilty
    15 Scientologists were accused of systematically keeping files on politicians, journalists, judges, clergymen and other Greek leading personalities. The Scientologists were found guilty, but they were not sentenced, due to procedural errors. (In other words, they got off on a technicality.)
    In 1998, a judge ordered the Scientology organization in Athens to stop operating, since the organization was established under false pretenses. According to the ruling, the organization was not operating as a non-profit, and was putting people's mental and physical health at risk.

    1997: Italy: Scientologists jailed
    29 Scientologists were sentenced to jail for criminal association.

    "A former Church of Scientology leader was convicted Friday of involuntary homicide and sentenced to 18 months in prison in the 1988 suicide of a church member. Twelve other defendants facing lesser charges - theft, complicity or abuse of confidence - were given suspended sentences of eight to 15 months each. Charges were dropped against 10 others." The Scientologistswere charged in the death of Patrice Vic.

    1996: France: Scientologists guilty of interfering with a witness
    Three Scientologists were given suspended prison sentences for interfering with an expert witnessin a Lyon trial. Charges of theft were proven.

    Scientology was found guilty of libelling Casey Hill, the prosecutor responsible for bringing Scientologyto justice for its egregious illegal acts in Canada.

    1994: USA: Scientology fined for filing a frivolous lawsuit
    Helena Kobrin, representing RTC (a Scientology corporation), was fined $17,775 for filing a frivolous lawsuit. (Using the law to harass critics is Scientology policy.)

    1992: Canada: Scientology found guilty of breach of the public trust
    Scientology itself and three Scientology executives were found guilty of breach of public trust in a case involving the theft of information from government offices.

    1989: USA: Scientology Found Guilty of Inflicting Emotional Distress
    In 1986, former Scientologist Larry Wollersheim sued Scientology for intentional infliction of emotional distress. The jury awarded him $35,000,000, which was reduced on appeal to $2,500,000.Scientologyrefuses to pay, and now owes Larry more than twice that (with interest accruing).
    The appeals court agreed that Larry had been badly hurt by Scientology: it found thatScientology"coerced Wollersheim into continued participation," "seized Wollersheim and held him captive," and that "the Church's conduct was manifestly outrageous." In October 1997, the court found that the Church of Scientology International and Religious Technology Center are liable for the debt.

    1984: USA: Clearwater Police Investigator Recommends RICO Charges
    Lt. Ray Emmons investigated Scientology as part of his duties. He found clear evidence of fraud and other crimesand recommended that federal and state authorities prosecute Scientology under anti-racketeering laws.

    1980: USA: Top-ranking Scientologists guilty of burglary, forgery, infiltration, and obstruction of justice
    Eleven Scientology executives, including L. Ron Hubbard's wife, pled guilty to a number of seriouscrimes. Thestipulation of evidence included the following statement: "At all times material to the indictment, L. Ron Hubbardwas, by virtue of his role as the founder and leader orScientology, overall supervisor of the Guardian's Office."

    1979: USA: Julie Christofferson Titchbourne sues Scientology for fraud
    Julie Christofferson Titchbourne sued Scientology for fraud and outrageous conduct. She won her original trial and the first appeal; Scientology appealed a second time but settled with Julie before that appeal was heard.

    1978: France: Fraud
    Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard was convicted of fraud in a trial held in absentia.

    General Information on Scientology's Crimes

    "Scientology is evil" ... "socially harmful" ... "both immoral and socially obnoxious" ... "practices that are dangerous and harmful" ... "caused real harm" ... "replete with false medical and scientific claims devoid of any religious overlay or reference."

    There's evidence that Scientology has a pattern of breaking the law in accordance with officialScientology policy.

    The Attorney General is responsible for enforcing the law in most states. The Attorney General's office often takes on fraud and large criminal prosecutions. You may also want to contact your District Attorney - the local version of the Attorney General. Feel free to use this sample letter, asking for an investigation - or better yet, write one of your own.

    * * * * * BEGIN INTRODUCTION * * * * *

    This is Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney with his eye on scientology. I normally report from the Pacific Area Command Base (“PAC Base” or “Big Blue”), the so-called “church” of scientology’s West Coast headquarters, located on L. Ron Hubbard Way (“LRH Way”). I can’t go anywhere near a scientology facility for fear of being arrested.

    A stranger served me a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”), at 6:15 PM, Saturday, June 25, 2016, in the parking lot outside Rite Aid, located at 1637 N. Vermont Ave., in Los Angeles. Just a few blocks away from PAC Base, as four individuals gathered to prepare for a peaceful protest against scientology, a well-fed man with a huge, hospital-issued bandage over his left cheek served me with papers that sent me home. And as I prepared to take a picture of the guy, he sped away. As I arrived at the location, and before the other protesters arrived, I discovered a spy across the street, apparently sent to scout the location in order to tell the Process Server that it would be safe to proceed in serving me.

    Now that I’ve been served with a TRO, there is nothing whatsoever I can do to get it off my public record.

    Thanks, scientology.

    FBI. Today I reported various violations of my civil liberties by the church of scientology to the Los Angeles office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Without going into detail, situations escalated last night to which I became forcibly extracted from the place in which I live. The police and the House Manager soothed my transition back into my home. The perpetrator is not the guy who has been working diligently to getting me kicked out; this hit me completely off-guard. As far as I know, the perpetrator is AWOL. I'm not writing for this attention or sympathy. Please do not follow in my footsteps. Do not protest alone at any scientology facility. Do not go anywhere near such a facility unless you have two people with you, with lots of cameras and video cameras running.

    Scientology caves: Fred Haseney avoids court hearing, will take camera to Big Blue tomorrow

    By Tony Ortega, June 15, 2016

    “Fred Haseney has entered into a settlement agreement, and he will be continuing his First Amendment activity around Big Blue,” says attorney Graham Berry, explaining why there will not be a court hearing today over a Scientology lawyer’s request for a restraining order against Haseney that accused him of stalking a Scientology employee.

    <snipped>

    Graham Berry would only say that a settlement had been reached, and that the terms were confidential. He was hired by Haseney after Fred raised money through the Internet.

    “I was more than happy to assist,” Berry says.

    But all is not good news for Haseney. At the same time that he was learning his legal problems were going away, he was getting kicked out of the transitional home, Hope Again, where he had lived for the past four years. We asked him why that had happened, and he said that right around the time that Weiland made her visit to the home to talk to the pastor, a new resident also showed up who took an instant dislike to Haseney.

    Over several weeks, Haseney says, that developed in odd ways until he found himself being screamed at in the house in what he perceived as a clearly targeted campaign. Under the house rules at Hope Again, when a conflict develops between two tenants, both of them are asked to leave. So, on Tuesday afternoon, Haseney found himself having to trash a large portion of his possessions so he could move out. He’s now staying in a cheap motel and paying for it from savings he managed to eke out from temporary jobs he’s had over the last four years.

    Still, he plans on being at Scientology’s Big Blue complex on L. Ron Hubbard Way tomorrow afternoon with his camera to cover the final Maiden Voyage event, and he is hoping that several people can join him.

    “I really want to thank everyone who donated for the legal fund. I don’t have much access time to a computer now that I’ve left Hope Again, but I did get a chance to send an email to Paulette Cooper, thanking her for her donation. I’m hoping to get time to thank everyone else,” he said.
