As would be expected, this has gotten a lot of attention from Anons, especially those who were in Nashville. Once more it looks like a :shootfoot: for the Co$. Here is the additional information provided with the video.


PLEASE SPREAD THIS VIDEO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!!

Last Saturday was the opening for the new Ideal CC here in Nashville -- it's kinda like a Scientology cathedral, so serious business. Their Chairman (like a Pope), David Miscavige, was in town and brought OSA agents with him for protection. There were five of us who decided to come and protest for the benefit of all of the people who were being led down an alternate route because 8th was closed for the Scientologists' party. Four of us were going to protest and one successfully infiltrated the Scientology party.

The Scientologists had purchased a permit for the sidewalks from Olympic to Vernon ( http://i41.tinypic.com/160xulu.jpg ), so we knew we could stand at the corner opposite Olympic and 8th. We could see the beginning of the sidewalk closed area on the other side of Olympic ( http://i40.tinypic.com/j6h8wy.jpg ). As we started walking up to the intersection, a combination of OSA members and people from a local security company ran toward us ( http://i41.tinypic.com/bfesg5.jpg -- the suit woman in the background is definitely OSA bureaucracy), screaming that we need to 'FUCKING TURN AROUND' and that the sidewalk was closed. When we tried to say that the permit didn't reach this far down on 8th, they said that we were wrong and that we needed to leave. OSA is vicious, so we said that fine, we would go behind the sign they were talking about (the LEFT LANE CLOSED sign which the woman said was the beginning of the closed sidewalk).

Eventually, they pinned one of the Anons to the ground ( http://i44.tinypic.com/208eb1f.jpg ) and told us that if we didn't leave, they were going to arrest us too and that the Anon was going to jail because he broke the law. A Google Street View shows that is not the case ( http://bayimg.com/image/oapicaabe.jpg ).

The rest is in the video.

More on this subject. Most of it is re-stating the events.

Scientology reps say “we bought all of these sidewalks” around their new 8th Avenue building.


Uh, no, you didn’t. Public sidewalks = public right-of-way. Watch the video:

Scientology Protesters Assaulted in Nashville

Nashville, TN: Protesters were assaulted by security police on a public sidewalk in Nashville while protesting the opening of the new Nashville Scientology center on 8th Avenue in South Nashville. The protesters, who were peacefully gathering on a public sidewalk, were approached by five security police who contested their First Amendment rights to peaceably assemble and present their message of concern. The group which was assaulted has been gathering on a monthly basis and holding vigils for over a year to remember Lisa McPherson whom they call a "victim of Scientology." In the video, presented here on Tennessee Indymedia, the protesters are say they were confronted and verbally harassed by the police without provocation.

Nashville Scientologists Turn Fascist Against Protesters

http://blogs.nashvillescene.com/pitw/2009/05/nashville_scientologists_turn.php

Scientology, the official religion of the Hollywood stars (when they're not dabbling in Jewish mysticism, that is), appears to be not totally into loving thy neighbor. The above video, which we swiped from Southern Beale, shows seemingly peaceful protesters being rousted by unknown security guards outside Nashville Scientology HQ. It looks like these rent-a-cops took their training cues from the Stasi, and are rather unfamiliar with the concept of public property.
Says Lady Beale: "You know, far be it from me to tell anyone what religion they want to follow. But here's a tip: if you're a controversial religious group trying to ingratiate yourself into a buckle-of-the-Bible Belt town, it might help if your security didn't act like a bunch of goons."

Hmmm, John Roberts said, "It looked like the protesters were looking for trouble and found it," .......just wow.
This essentially means that Assisist Chief John Roberts is stating that exercising one's right to free speech is "Looking for trouble?" They were 400 yards away from the org, AND on the other side of the street. Either I'm missing something or Mr. Roberts is.

Here is a video clip of "Big Developments" in this story, as per WSMV.

They report on the expired permits and the various rules broken by the off duty cops acting as security guards.

fkn amazing. I feel bad for the peeps out there putting themselves on the line but they are doing society a favor by 1. right to protest peacful, and 2. drawing attention to a cult...

They are true pioneers and really, in my book, heroes.

Also, taking the time to care award!

Does anyone know if Nathan Baca and WESQ are doing anymore stories? I hope so.

Mr. Roberts must be blind and deaf and intellectually challenged. To me this is obvious and blatant misconduct by the off-duty Spring Hill police. Just another indication of why living under totalitarian rule would be a horrible fate indeed.
