  1. To me Mike is a normal human being. It is for us as human beings to be shocked at any form of violence or wrong doings. I understand fear or lack of empathy! The church of scientology provides an environment of both. The fault to me lies on the authorities that govern us. We see it time and time again. Our government is not as it appears. Just like the church of Scientology it’s a “corporation”. We stand in our own way. Staying ignorant and disbelieving.
