Monday May 28, 2001. I returned to my home in Oakville at 1:15 PM from my employment. As I entered my driveway I felt, once again the prying eyes of watchers. I glanced about and felt I had spotted Scientology Intelligence (Office of Special Affairs) or hired PI thugs watching my home. It would not be the first time.This was not unexpected. Keith and I had peacefully picketed Scientology numerous times in the last 10 days. The Co$ had stopped sending out its goons squad to harass me and *quietly walk elbow to elbow with Keith Henson* discussing his conviction on concocted OSA lies in the US. Instead, the Co$ had taken to hand wringing, hiding and wailing to the police they were being terrorized by our presence and the words of our signs and handouts. Keith and I ha theorized they would begin to tail us so they would have forewarning whenever we loaded a car with Picket materials and headed into Toronto. But today it was not the OSA. It was something more terrible. Something sickening to me: Perversion of the Canadian Justice System by a Criminally Convicted Corporation: Scientology. At approximately 2 :15 pm Keith Henson and I were shopping at the Oakville Place Mall. Finished, we went to my four door Protege which was parked in the lower parking lot near the main entrance to the Grocery store and the Mall Food Court. We were seated in the vehicle, which was the last car in a row of car with the passenger door opening onto the lane way. Immediately after I turned the car on the Oakville ETF executed a High Risk Take Down upon myself and Keith Henson. An unmarked Van blocked the rear of my car and another unmarked van pulled up on the passenger side of the vehicle. My first reaction was that these were Scientology paid Bounty Hunters attempting to do a kidnapping of Keith, Then I saw the blue Flak jackets, uniforms and badges for a moment and after that all I saw was guns. Lots of guns. Two Officers carrying machine guns had Keith in their gun sights and were standing to the right of the car. Two more with drawn Glock handguns had me in their line of fire. We were ordered to freeze and keep our hands in view. Keith raised his. As did I. Keith was ordered to exit the vehicle, hand s in view and to lie prone on the ground. Keith complied without comment. He was handcuffed while prone. Then an officer opened my door and took control of me with by grip and twist of my left wrist. I was taken from the car to the rear of the vehicle and bent over the trunk. My pockets were emptied and fanny pack removed. I was also handcuffed. The Oakville Police Emergency Task Force had acted professionally and gained total control of this situation in moments. They were, given the circumstances, courteous and considerate of the Grandfather they were arresting and the slightly overweight middle aged local citizen they were detaining for the moment. At the scene were at least six ETF officers in battle gear, at least one of which was a woman. There were also at least three marked cruisers, besides the two unmarked vans and another 4 to 6 uniform Oakville uniformed cops. There was also the leader of this High Risk Take Down; A Metro Toronto Police Force Detective form 22 Division. I believe his name was BonForte. The Detective was in plain clothes and questioned me briefly to record my particulars. He made certain statements to me which I shall not repeat at this time but have forwarded to Keiths Legal counsel here in Canada. The Detective stated he was executing an Immigration Canada Warrant for Keith Hensons Arrest. And had employed the Oakville Police ETF and Uniformed Officers to execute the warrant. Keith was to be taken to 22 Division in Toronto and handed over to Immigration there. I later discovered he was then to be sent to the infamous Immigration Metro West Holding Centre at 111 Disco Rd in Etobicoke. This is near the Toronto International Airport. I immediately called Keiths Immigration Lawyers: Mamann and Associates. Mr. Polton was on the case immediately and shortly thereafter spoke with Keith and the Immigration Officer detaining him at 22 Division. The apparent basis of this Immigration Warrant is the allegation Keith Henson failed to disclose to Immigration Canada, when he entered Canada on May 12, 2001 that he was wanted on a Felony Fugitive Warrant in the US for Hate Crimes in California. The fact is, Keith was not wanted at that time. And tho' he may be wanted now for a misdemeanor flight this itself is not a violation, according to the Lawyers. This was a perversion of Canadian Justice. There was *no* justification in the law to execute this kind of high tension *armed and dangerous* arrest. Immigration and the Metro and Oakville police Department were acting strictly on false and misleading information supplied to them from Scientology sources. Even the police at the scene finally realized that the "armed and dangerous" grandfather Keith Henson was not threat and never was because my car was never searched and neither has my home been searched for any stray ICBMs . The lies of Criminal Scientology put Officers, a citizen and a tourist/ refugee claimant at risk. One or more officials at the Immigration or Metro and Oakville Police has acted without precipitously and without all the facts or doing all the homework. The police knew Keith Henson was staying at my home. Had the Officer In Charge of this sickening circus bothered to check the CPIC system they would have found my record to be spotless. They would have found out I qualify for Airport Security clearance. They would have discovered I was instrumental in the arrest, trial and conviction of my own son on minor drug trafficking offences a few years ago. ( My son has straightened out nicely.) They would have found out that they could have simply *called* me and asked for Keith to surrender himself at the Oakville Police station. The ETF action was not justified, not rational, and while executed flawlessly was an unnecessary risk which put the lives or the Officers,. Keith, myself and the public at large in a crowded shopping mall parking lot all in *real* jeopardy. And this jeopardy is the direct result of the Lies of Criminals in the Criminal Cult of Scientology. I think it is time for Ontario authorities to get of the pot and act on the volume of evidence at their disposal and lay charges on the Toronto Org of Scientology and specific members, for the known and evidentiary proven acts of Extortion, Violent Assault, multiple acts of Criminal Harassment, Criminal Mischief , Organized Crime Gang Activity and Trademark Infringements the Scientologists have committed More to follow. And that is guaranteed.
