These scriptural Scientology references help to explain why Scientologists don't go to the police. Notice how Hubbard pushes the guilt/responsibility buttons in these Basic Staff hatting directives. (Current discussion re: responsibility in this OCMB thread

Try to use the lightest form first.
Students are quite caved in by it when it is applied, by actual observation. Our lines are too powerful and direct and what we mean to a person's future, even while he or she is nattering, is so well understood down deep that ethics action is a far worse threat than mere wog law.
The being who is guilty knows with certainty that he is offending against the future of all, no matter what his surface manifestations or conduct. Further, while wog law at the worst can only cause him or her some pain and a body by execution or one lifetime's loss of liberty, we threaten his eternity. Even while he screams at us, he knows this down deep.
My first instance of this was a very dangerous psychotic who was largely responsible for a great deal of the public commotion in 1950. This person desisted and caved in the moment the thought was suggested to her by a non-Dianetic friend that she was threatening all mankind. She suddenly saw it as truth and instantly gave up all attacks and utterances.
Even the fellow who could push the button on atomic war knows, really, it's only one lifetime per person he is blowing up, only one phase in Earth's existence he or she is destroying. That we exist here could actually restrain him. The mere destruction of a planet might not, as it's temporary.
Our discipline is quite capable of driving a person around the bend because of what he or she is attacking.
Therefore, we can all too easily make a person feel guilty by just a whisper. I've now seen a student, simply asked a question by Ethics, promptly give up and ask for his Comm Ev and expulsion. He hadn't done more than a poor auditing job. Nobody was talking about a Comm Ev or expulsion and he had not a bit of defiance in it. He just caved right in.
You are threatening somebody with oblivion for eternity by expulsion from Scientology. Therefore realize that an ethics action need not be very heavy to produce the most startling results.
Down deep they know this even when they are screaming at us.
One suppressive person who had committed a high crime of some magnitude went quite insane after departing Scientology and then realizing what he had done.
Therefore, use ethics lightly. It is chain lightning.

Don't react to Scientology justice as though it were wog law. In society's "courts" one is given the works, and truth has little bearing on the findings. A mean judge or clever attorney and small legal errors decide a lot of their cases.
Wog courts are like throwing dice. There is huge cost and publicity and punishment galore even for the innocent.
So we must preserve our justice.
And use it.
That's the main lesson. If we don't use it in all questions where the truth of the matter is in doubt, we'll just go on being wogs.
If we don't exhibit our science as a group and show a good example, what can we achieve?
So let's grow up to our own technology and take responsibility for it.
And wear our hats as Scientologists to the world.
