Thanks for the welcome...and now for more news...
Today (7/25/00) just as Ursula Caberta's press conference was getting underway, I was outside the trust filming various activity. Someone pointed out a lurker on the third floor of the parking garage behind the trust. I went up to see who it was, and who did I see but Dennis Clarke, local a.m. talk radio spokesclam, who was very unhappy to see me. He bustled past me and my female cohort, elbowing me and almost knocking her down...he went down a flight of stairs, and I stood above, videotaping him all the while ('tis my job, ya know). He then turned and ascended the stairs, yelling at me to stop taping him. To my surprise, he then punched me in the stomach while yelling that I was harassing him! He shouted that he wanted me to stop pointing the camera at him, so I pointed it down...and he punched me again in the stomach...this time in full view of the lens! He then left, and I alerted the police who were nearby, but they could not find him...
As they say, film at 11...Mark says he should have the clip posted tomorrow sometime...another fine production from LMT showing how the Scientologists REALLY behave in this world. I filed a complaint with the CWPD and will insist that this be pursued. The above description is close to the words I used in the complaint, just a factual description of what is on tape anyway.
I think Clarke is the same person referred to as attacking Bob, if the footage I saw is what is being described, it likely will be up soon. Mark has a lot of work on his hands right now, the clams have been active! Can you say enturbulation? I knew you could!
Much more took place outside the trust during the conference, including two appearances by MOXON who does not appear to be grieving. He instead has been reduced to process serving. Or attempting same.
The press conference seemed to go well. I would expect the St. Petersburg Times to have some coverage of it tomorrow.
Take care all!
M (oof!) camera2
ps: The spitting scio's were as scary if not more so in person. It is that look in their eyes that is the most disturbing.
