What your donations buy: Spies

July 23, 2009

I had earlier posted about an incident reported on Marty Rathbun’s blog, about how he had been tailed by noted PI and celebri-shamus Vinnie Parco through a Houston airport. A reader, Thoughtful, then posted some details about Parco’s questionable past, as reported by Wikipedia.

Parco, his knickers thoroughly twisted, objected to the details of his life as reported by Wikipedia. Well, he can take that up with them – I don’t have a dog in that fight.

That’s not the point. I don’t care whether Parco is a paragon of virtue or shadow-world scum. I do care that the Church of Scientology is hiring private investigators to stalk and harass its critics. And I think all Scientologists should know that this is where their hard-earned donations are going.

And it’s not just Marty. Read the account of Matt and Amy Pesch being obviously tailed. The purpose of all this cloak and dagger is just one thing, to “shudder into silence” those speaking out against Scientology’s deceptions and abuse.

And it’s not going to work.

And Mr. Parco, if you are concerned with your reputation, I suggest you – and any other private investigators – distance yourself from the Church of Scientology.
