    You may recall the thread from last March regarding Scilon Kenya Smith, of Denver, Colorado, turning her 11-year-old son to the Sea Org in Clearwater, and gloating on her Facebook how her young son was excelling as "Commander" of the Cadet Org.

    **The thread was removed by a mod for unknown reasons**

    You can read the thread on OCMB..

    I was contacted last March by an acquaintance of Kenya Smythe after she read the threads here & on WWP. The source recently confirmed some very good news. :party:

    Despite the complaints filed with law enforcement agencies going nowhere, it caused a PR nightmare for the cult in Clearwater. FUCK YOU OSA and YOU'RE WELCOME.

    Jet Arranz is now OUT of the Sea Org and back home in Denver, Colorado, living with his mother & soon-to-be stepfather.

    Recent happy pics..

    This is awesome. I am so happy to hear a child was freed from that place. He's so young too. I'm glad he can enjoy his youth again.

    I saw children leave for the Sea Org too - they came back. One was 13 and called me only to sell the drivel. I told her no - I did not need any more stuff but that I loved her! Another one was at an advanced Morgue - I ran in to him - he was 14. He told me with all sincerity - "I want to get up the Bridge". My heart broke for some reason - his family who has been in is a total mess! Bankrupt, divorced - still in - and crazy as bats! Poor kid - he has no where to go!:bigcry:

    I think that Kenya is ex-SO. If so, I assume she knew exactly what she was doing when she put her son in.

    Woot!!! A childhood literally saved!! Awesome work Smurf, truly I don't think there's anything you can be prouder of, when it comes to activism against the CoS, than saving a child from the abusive, soul crushing SO.

    Out of curiosity, you mentioned the mother read the threads - does that mean she actively tried to get her son back? Or just the PR flap resulted in the cult returning her son?

    I can only hope the mothers eyes have been opened and she runs far far away from the cult - if not now, then soon.

    The latter. The mother threatened to sue me for posting about the matter and copying/pasting photos from her Facebook page. I challenged her to try, as I'd already been advised by an attorney that the federal Privacy Act does not cover publicly-assessable Facebook pages.

    The *PRIVACY NOTICE* that now appears on her Facebook page, and that of many other Scientologists on Facebook, is meaningless & has no legal standing.

    She responded by removing the Sea Org photos of her son, which I'd already copied & printed, and they accompanied my complaints to law enforcement.

    There are no violations of the Facebook T&C.

    Emphasis mine.

    I would think that DMCA applies to the photos.

    Smurf Gold Meritorious SP

    You think wrong. The photos have to be copyrighted for infringement to take place under the DMCA.

    Ordinarily, photos on a person's Facebook page lack copyright unless they've been used commercially.

    Good work Smurf. The kid has a much better chance outside the s.o. The induction of teens and even pre-teens is one of the main ways the cult builds its slave corps. It is sadder and surely more ruinous even than the recruitment of adults. A tragedy that needs to stop.

    Well, you know the Sea Org motto, doncha?

    We come back.

    I know I did.

    Not sure , but probably you. There is so much video and writing on the net by you and about you that you are very real to me.

    One can only wonder what form of a "childhood" he can ever have with that kind of a Scientologist mother. She knew what's up and sent him anyway - at 11!!

    That poor poor kid. I'm amazed and appalled that any mom would have done that, especially one who'd been in the SO.

    It boggles the mind.

    I learned from the CPD that it had to do with the mother's finances & living situation, which at the time, was precarious... a nice way of saying she couldn't afford to support him.

    She's now on better footing, and reportedly, getting assistance from her parents & brother in Mexico.

    I think the child has a four year stay of execution at best. He's signed a billion year contract and his mother doesn't see anything wrong with it - she was proud to have her son in the Sea Org - proud of how "well" he was doing, I thought.
