    AGP posted a thread on OCMB that the Christmas parade was cancelled because the parade's website had not been updated.

    I called the parade hotline at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (1-866-PARADE-1 or 1-866-727-2331) and confirmed there will be a Hollywood Christmas Parade this year on Sunday, November 27, 2011 at 6:00pm.

    They said their website will be updated in the next week or so. (the rep said that budgets cuts which resulted in the layoff of manpower has caused delays).
    AGP was in Hollywood yesterday and reports the Scilons are busy building the L Ron Hubbard Winter Wonderland exhibit at the old testing center.

    alright, we need some people for sure that can do this. my best suggestion is maybe two people with signs and other people handing out fliers. smurf you would be very necessary with your video camera so you can record everything they do, covering up signs and taking fliers away from people after they are handed to them. last year they did that.

    I plan to be at the parade (and leaving my car at home this time). I, however, will avoid the troublesome attention whores...that attract the police.

    The original parade was a celebration of the movie & TV industry with alot of major stars participating... in the last few years, support for the parade as waned so much that the only "stars" that participate are soap opera actors & child stars with a smattering of aged stars that have nothing better to do (Shirley Jones and Cloris Leachman are regulars). The TV hosts are Erik Estrada & some chick he does a travel show with...

    Neither Garcetti nor LaBonge are Scientologists... they might as well be... they're major ass-kissers of the cult who rely on it to assist them in their re-election bids. I, as many of my neighbors, have filed complaints & addressed concerns with LaBonge (who represents my district) over the years that have nothing to do with the cult, and our concerns are ignored. And every December, we received a calendar from LaBonge where he promotes himself and the "city he loves so much."

    Stupid, manipulative politicians love parades. They can promote themselves, massage their egos, and exploit the gullible on how an idiot parade with D-list celebrities promotes tourism to Hollywood, which helps the economy, and promotes jobs.

    I just returned from the parade... a night full of drama. I hung out in front of the HGB and had conversations with Andy, Franck & Alex. They were not happy with my presence. The conversations remained amicable until I walked in front of the HGB near a stage set up where Lissa Uvizl and a Spanish speaking Scilon were giving play-by-plays of parade entries. Andy & Franck told me I could not walk on the public sidewalk in front of the HGB and step in front of me to try to block me from doing so.. I pushed by them and continued to film. Scilon attorney Rick Moxon showed up & made a point of calling me a "pathetic fool" before walking away. I followed him trying to engage him; he fled inside the HGB hulkering like a coward.

    Several times during the evening, as you will see in my videos, Rick tried to evade my filming him. The LAPD was in force tonight in front and around the HGB... and very friendly with the Scilons. When Doug Owens & Steve Curry showed up, Andy & Franck become very angry & tried to prevent him from walking in front of the HGB and near the stage where Lissa was sitting. Doug would stand near the stage & Andy would physically plant himself in front of Doug. Then, Andy became aggressive & threatened to arrest Doug.

    Andy wailed to the cops and next thing I see, the cops are all over Doug, yanking his arm behind his back, Doug reacting in obvious pain, and the cops shoving him up against the wall & handcuffing him. As you will see on my video, there was a particularly abusive black cop that was constantly shoving a restrained Doug up against the wall.
    While 6-7 cops were on Doug, several cops were meeting with Andy & Rick Moxon inside the HGB. When I approached Doug with my camera, a cop threatened to arrest me for interfering with police. I was standing there peacefully filming the unfolding events & am threatened with arrest.

    Then, the OSAbots showed up with their videocams. Someone I worked with in OSA long ago, Neil O' Reilly aka Joe Neal was there..following & filming me.

    I hung back & filmed as much of the action as I could. Eventually, a police sergeant appeared & talked with Doug. After nearly an hour, the handcuffs came off and Doug was released. Doug & the police sergeant walked down Ivar to discuss Doug's wanting to file a complaint. Later, Doug was talking amicably with the police sergeant. Lynn Fountain-Campbell showed up later. She told me she saw anti at Winter Wonderland.

    I walked by it on the long walk home. They were shutting it down for the night. I had a brief conversation with Odo Huber then walked home.

    geez Smurf!
    you would think that COS woudln't pull such BS at a public venue considering the bad PR that they have been receiving.
    I mean I know they have been pulling this crap all along, but I was kind of surprised. I guess I shouldn't be.
    And Moxon sticking his nose in too?
    wow desperation is really showing. Maybe DM wanted another critic's head on a pike?
    pity that Andy and Franck who you were previously pretty friendly awith you re "just following orders" now I guess.
    Staff culties should never REALLY be trusted or thought of as acting one way or another. They are true to COS all the way. SAD

    Doug Owen commented on OCMB...

    Last night at the Hollywood Christmas Parade, I watched part of the parade in front of Scientology's Hollywood Guarantee Building, HGB. They had a small stage in the curb lane and I stood next to the stage on the sidewalk. My presences watching the parade was too much for Scientology's inner fanatical core who sign billion year contracts: the Sea Org. Sea Org security guard, Andy, followed me wherever I went and got inches in front of my face telling me to leave the area despite the fact it was a public sidewalk with many others watching the parade.

    A short-time later, 3 LAPD police officers grabbed me by my arms, pulling them back and up, which lowered my head, and ran me at a fast speed head-first into the granite side of the HGB building. My head struck the granite and the officers cuffed me and pushed me into the front of the HGB building.

    They claimed I committed the offense of loitering. I knew the that was nonsense and told them so. They then changed their story to disturbing the peace. They claimed the Sea Org security guard reported to them, falsely, that I had tried to get on their Way to Happiness stage, and that I been disruptive.

    The officers kept me cuffed for over 45 minutes while the constantly pushed me into the side of the HGB building. I demanded to see a supervisor and when he appeared I demanded they uncuff me; he refused. After about 20 minutes, the sergeant told me he would uncuff me if I agreed to leave the sidewalk in front of the HGB.

    I told him he would have to tell everyone on the sidewalk watching the parade to leave as I was doing nothing different than them. This continued for about 30 minutes.

    The sergeant told me he was going to take me into the station and I would stay in jail until Tuesday to see a judge. He urged me to agree to leave. I refused and told him to go ahead and take me in. But he constantly delayed; I had violated no law. The police violated my 4th Amendment rights by going through my pockets without consent and by keeping me detained.

    They used excessive force by ramming my head into a granite wall and pushing me against the wall for so long. The Sea Org security guards violated the law by making false and malicious reports to the police.

    Eventually, the sergeant agreed to unhand-cuff me and to not demand I leave. I, did, however file a complaint at the scene against these abuses. I want to add the LAPD is great in the way they treat complaints seriously and professionally, and tonight was no exception. After this, I resumed my position next to the stage to watch the end of the parade.

    The officers involved were: LAPD Police Officer 1 Farrell 36164, LAPD Police Officer 1 Acosta 36470, LAPD Police Officer 1 Shaw 37209 and Sgt. 2 Davis 32256 of the Hollywood Division. A second Sgt took my complaint in a professional manner.

    Personal Note: I take exception to Doug's reporting of the LAPD treating complaints "seriously & professionally" given what he had to experience at the hands of the LAPD Sunday night. The LAPD never takes these complaints seriously because citizens complain about LAPD behavior all the time. This is where Doug & I will have to disagree, and you will have to ask him why he's playing both sides of the fence when it comes to the LAPD, when they succumb to the demands of the cult they have long favored in Los Angeles.

    When I was roughed up by LAPD Porter, while wearing a knee brace, years ago at Big Blue (the lighting of their new sign), I got lip service from LAPD staff over my complaint until I got an attorney involved who contacted & provided DVDs of the incident to Mayor Viilaraigosa, the Los Angeles City Council & the ACLU. Only then, did the LAPD command feel compelled to take action with Officer Porter being reprimanded & removed from the roster of future Scilon events..

    The LAPD's longtime schmoozing of the cult is well-known. During my filming last night of Andy & Franck, several cops consistently walked back & forth behind me checking me out. I presume they said nothing because my conversations with the two guards were amicable.

    It was later, after Doug was handcuffed & being roughed up by the cops, I moved into film the abuse, that Andy pointed me out to a cop who then approached me & threatened to arrest me for "interfering with police" if I approached Doug & filmed his being detained.

    The LAPD's threat of arresting a critic 'loitering" is one of their oft-used 'rabbit in the hat' charges when conceding to the requests of Scientologists. They have threatened me & other critics in the past with the same charge when protesting on L Ron Hubbard Way, the Celebrity Center, and Winter Wonderland.

    Never at any time did Doug attempt to get on the stage. This was yet another false charge asserted by the Scilons to create a 'noisy investigation' and set him up to be arrested. These bogus attempts are not new to Los Angeles Scilons, and you'd think the LAPD would be cognizant of such bogus attempts as I believe they are, when they're not busy schmoozing & kissing the ass of their Scilon friends.

    This is why it is vitally important.. especially in Los Angeles.. where the LAPD is involved... to have a video camera running.. you will see in my videos, while Doug is being detained, cops often looking at me while I was videotaping the scene from a distance.. they were not happy about it.

    I later spoke to one of the sergeants there and told him about my incident with "Flyer Guy" where Rick Moxon tried.. but failed.. to nail me for 'assault'. The LAPD were over-the-top in kissing the cult's ass that night, as well.

    Is the Hollywood Christmas Parade officially sponsored by Co$ or has it just been co-opted and taken over by them as a PR ploy?
    If it is part-and-parcel of Co$ we should 'poon the schools with marching bands and also the equestrian units.

    In 2007, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which ran the parade, chose to cancel it because it was no longer financially feasible, with major studios & corporate sponsors withdrawing their support. But, the LA City Council voted to sponsor the event, using community sponsor money to pay for it. Scientology's Galaxy Press is a major sponsor. Before the parade, I saw several OSA staff walking on Hollywood Blvd wearing "Special Event" IDs & lanyards.

    another time they said he couldn't walk on the sidealk because "they were filming"
    Put all the past incidents and show this harrassment by COS (and by the cops) in one neat little package and present it to someone who will listen.
    Enough is enough

    They hate that guy and his cameras!
  40. RightOn Member

    so yet another false police report called in
    I wonder if COS used 911?
    And since OSA was filming it and Moxon was there, this obvioulsy seems like something COS cooked up to show DM? Or did DM just want ANY protestor arrested?

    this coudln't have been a more lame arrest.
    Arrest a guy for standing on the sidewalk.
    good going LAPD
