    I did hear on an airing on NBC that DM's dad said he was "devastated" by this.

    Looks just bluddy luvly in the media too, that son is being accused of setting PIs on dad and going through dad's trash, but dad is not going to say that son-head-of-a-'religion' might not be doing that sorta thing.

    And the beautiful thing is: there is SO much shit that has not hit the public consciousness yet. This is the gift that will keep on giving for the tabloids.

    I keep going back to the offical statement from the church.. "Unadulterated [Expletive]"
    not "balderdash" not "hogwash" but an expletive!? Hmm, me thinks someone is nervous :nervous: and spoke quickly off the cuff this time!

    the expletive in question? I call "bullshit" :hysterical:

    Unadulterated = a bunch of...
    (Expletive) = bullshit

    This has been today's plain English translation of Scientologese.

    I really hope the reporter is putting something else together on this! Where is the rest of the taped interview from 2013? I also want to see the entire church statement in full paragraph form. The way the segment broke up the statement with the use of ellipses makes me hope a longer segment is being produced for use on NBC.

    Meanwhile, I'm trying to think up something pithy to tweet using that image and I plan on tweeting the reporter directly asking for more details @joefryer .. All you tweeters might want to ask for more details to show him there is interest in this story!

    for now, I'm going to take a break and watch Wednesday nights episode of The Americans.. Maybe the spy show will inspire me!

    IMO the best part of the article is the TMZ report and the 2 PI's joking that Tom Cruise was paying their $10K a week fee and people should go see TC's movie so they'd get paid. That's gotta hurt like a rug burn for Cruise.

    The cult is digging it's hole so deep, not even it's blood money lawyers can save them. Interestingly, Dwayne Scott Powell seems to have gone into hiding.

    That's again to Tony Ortega for retrieving the West Allis Police report. http://www.scribd.com/doc/261396882/Dwayne-Powell-Arrest-Report#scribd

    Just some cursory checking.. Dwayne Powell lied to police claiming he owned 217 W. Hollis Street, Waynesboro, TN 38485. The owners of the property since 2010 have been James & Shirley Thompson. The property was foreclosed on:

    http://www.policeauctions.com/foreclosure/index.php?Action=PropertyDetail&Id=6789899

    ..but can't locate appraisal info on the state's real estate appraisal site (under owner, address or parcel no.).. calling AnonyMary!! :biggrin:

    http://www.assessment.cot.tn.gov/RE_Assessment/ParcelList.aspx

    I also searched the address that Powell claimed was owned by his girlfriend, Tiffany Stark. The owner of that home is Deborah J. Dever of Leesburg, FL (listed residence city of Dwayne Powell). Hmmm...

    DEVER DEBORAH J
    35445 HAINES CRK RD
    LEESBURG, FL 34788
    Property Addr: ARNOLD HOLLOW RD 3095, WAYNESBORO, TN

    And how many of you just had to look at Ms. Dever's fb page? I know I did! Now I feel dirty! Poor woman, if she has no connection to this ordeal, I wonder if she knows her address was used. She seems to like animals and really should make her page private!

    I think Miscavige must be getting annoyed because his pants are permanently on fire.:giggle:
