Are These People *Clams* ? (Cult of Scientology?)

You Be the Judge: Why is No Treasons' Archives Littered with Attacks on various Libertarians from all over the United States, when at the same time, they consistently have defended one thing over the years? - Scientology. Here's some of the anti-dote to their attempts to make Scientology acceptable among libertarins:

"Confusion Techniques" and "Persecution Techniques"

As for Front Sight - the Scientology Front Gun School In Question -- Whatever happened to them?

The Front Sight School that John T Kennedy and Lynnette Warren of the No-Treason blog so vigorously tried to defend while attacking the Hsiehs, has been now sued by numerous clients.

It is indeed a Scientology front - despite multiple claims to the contrary by Kennedy and Warren.

I wonder why they were so eager to cover up the link between FRONT SIGHT and SCIENTOLOGY?

From the website in question...

"The purpose of this website is to provide information and developments regarding a class action lawsuit filed against Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight Firearms Training Institute on behalf of members alleging fraud, misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty.

The suit claims that Defendants Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight Management Incorporated, doing business as Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, marketed and sold "First Family Memberships" by means of false and misleading statements. The suit further alleges that Defendant Piazza illegally diverted money obtained from plaintiffs and members of the class, as well as money from a $6,000,000 bank loan using Front Sight property as security, for his personal use and self aggrandizement, thus causing harm to First Family Members. The Complaint seeks to enjoin Defendant Piazza from continuing to market and advertise Front Sight Memberships in ways that violate State and Federal laws, and to recover compensatory damages, punitive damages, restitution and/or disgorgement of the defendants’ ill-gotten gains."

DeMeo's not playing you're my favorite 'special' deputy game
SHERIFF: PREVIOUS TOP COP PUT COUNTY IN JEOPARDY; LIESEKE SAYS IT'S ALL 'SILLINESS'


By GINA B. GOOD
PVT

Twice a year, Nye County Sheriff's deputies must pass a proficiency test using the weapons they carry on the streets. With Front Sight Firearms Training Institute just 30 minutes south of Pahrump, why has the Sheriff's Office stopped qualifying its deputies there?

While Wade Lieseke was sheriff, Front Sight did not charge the county to use the facility, and the former sheriff "found it advantageous to the county" to train there. Yet today, neither the county's deputies nor its Special Tactics And Response Team (START) train at Front Sight ranges.

Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo explained that soon after taking office, he met with Front Sight's founder, Ignatius Piazza. At that meeting, the sheriff found that if the county wanted to continue qualifying and training deputies at Front Sight, DeMeo had to give Piazza "special consideration."

Instead the newly-elected sheriff did just the opposite. DeMeo took away what Piazza wanted most - his special deputy status.

"There was a quid pro quo relationship between Front Sight and the previous sheriff," DeMeo stated. "People knew about it. I don't know what the arrangement was, but I refused to continue it."

"That's absurd," said former sheriff Wade Lieseke.

"The move away from using Front Sight's range was purely political," Lieseke continued. "Piazza contributed $8,000 to my campaign (in 2002, when the incumbent lost to DeMeo) and that was a mortal sin."

Lieseke spent 12 years as Nye County's sheriff before losing the election to Tony DeMeo for the term starting in January 2003. "We had our own range at no cost and we did our own training," said the former sheriff.

Lieseke, who is strongly rumored to be running for sheriff this year but so far has not announced his intentions, denies special considerations were given to Front Sight's owner. But there is no question that the special deputy badges granted by Lieseke to Piazza and his management staff - then taken away by Sheriff DeMeo - created a bone of contention that Piazza found hard to swallow.

Front Sight's founder was also given notarized letters, written on Nye County letterhead and signed by then-sheriff Lieseke. The Pahrump Valley Times obtained a copy of a letter renewing Piazza's status, dated Sept. 16, 2002. It reads: "To Whom it may concern: Due to his duties and exposure as a Special Deputy, Ignatius A. Piazza is required to be armed 24 hours per day. This includes maintaining his firearm, concealed on his person when flying commercial airlines. Special Deputy Ignatius Piazza has received an extensive amount of specialized and advanced firearms training."

Piazza was among a handful of Front Sight personnel that were issued the badges, but he was the only person enabled to carry a firearm while flying.

The letter was used by Piazza to fly from San Jose, Calif., into McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas multiple times each month, allowing him to oversee the ongoing construction at Front Sight facilities as well as to lecture, promote and sell Front Sight membership programs.

Piazza is a California resident who lives and works from his upscale home in Santa Cruz County where permits to carry firearms are next to impossible to come by for civilians. To be "required" to carry a weapon 24-hours per day is extremely uncommon for a civilian or law enforcement professional.

According to Sheriff DeMeo, "No one in the Nye County Sheriff's Office is mandated to carry a firearm 24/7."

The PVT also acquired a copy of the Sept. 7, 2002 letter from Ignatius Piazza requesting then-sheriff Lieseke to renew his notarized letter. It said, in part, "I greatly appreciate your assistance in providing for my safety. I have been flying regularly all year (at least four times per month) without question or incident. Please let me know how I can assist you."

"Piazza demanded that I reissue the letter," said Sheriff DeMeo. "I said no. He may not have known it was illegal before then, but from that point on he knew it was illegal (to have and use the special deputy badge and to fly with a firearm).

"I told him it was illegal and for him to pursue that was troubling to me," said DeMeo.

The letter issued by Lieseke was correct in saying Piazza has extensive training. He is one of just two men in the country to earn a four weapon combat master designation - using a handgun, rifle, shotgun and submachine gun. However, according to DeMeo, Piazza has never attended a day of special training to carry a firearm on an airplane.

"Flying while armed is a police use-of-force class," said DeMeo. "It is only available to law enforcement personnel who must carry a firearm."

Piazza also told his instructors he showed his special deputy badge to bypass airport security checks.

"There are standards for deputies," said DeMeo. "Our deputies are state certified that they meet certain standards. For a department to give a badge to someone and give that person the same authority as a fully trained officer is irresponsible at the least. Lieseke during his 12-year term bestowed the status on several non-trained civilians.

"We definitely don't have the money to defend our agency should any (so-called) special deputies be involved in a shooting incident," said DeMeo. "The previous sheriff put the county in jeopardy."

During introductions at the beginning of each new teaching session at Front Sight, instructors with special deputy badges were encouraged to introduce themselves as Nye County deputies, although not all complied. The practice was started when Front Sight first opened and Piazza was still teaching. He walked from range to range introducing his instructors, reportedly citing sometimes-embellished accomplishments.

Piazza also exploited the fact that Nye County officers - and especially the prestigious START teams - were training at Front Sight. "He was telling people Front Sight was training our county officers. Piazza was using the county as part of his marketing," said DeMeo.

"I felt for the integrity of the sheriff's office that I had to separate the Nye County Sheriff's Office from Front Sight," continued DeMeo. "The sheriff's office has not been compromised by Front Sight.

"That (relationship with the previous sheriff) is why people feel inhibited to talk about Front Sight," said DeMeo, responding to a comment that local contractors and former Front Sight employees from Pahrump had brought information to the Pahrump Valley Times, but would not allow their names to be published.

"People need to know that this agency has no relationship with Front Sight," DeMeo emphasized.

According to Lieseke the flap over special deputy badges is "silliness." He said many rural counties grant badges to citizens to augment their police force.

"The law has changed and now special deputies must be academy certified," said Lieseke. "They must be a Category I or III officer.

"That killed our reserve officer program," he continued. "We used to have two-man cars using our reserves, but the law simply changed.

"We deputized (Front Sight instructors) because they were out there alone at some distance from town," Lieseke explained. "A lot of them were ex-police officers and could handle themselves.

"They had commission cards because they were commissioned as special deputies," he continued. "They were sworn deputies, but reserves can't do that any longer. Crime is up and the statistics show it. The change hurts the rural areas."
