Mother turns 12-year old son over to the Sea Org

Post by Smurf » Thu Jan 12, 2012 9:39 pm

I responded to an anonymous posting on WWP.. a Facebook screenprint of a Scilon expressing she misses her son, who she turned over to the Sea Org in 2010 at the age of 12. I provided further dox on the woman and expressed my ire over a parent who would turn a young child.. who has not yet reached the age of consent.. to the Sea Org (considering what has already been documented are the living conditions & neglect showered on young members of the Sea Org).

I posted the WWP thread on my Facebook wall and sent it & the link to the WWP thread to the San Diego Police Department & Child Protective Services in SD. I received a response from CPD that they were unable to access the link. I tried.. and found that WWP mods deleted the thread and permanently banned me from WWP with the explanation.."fin". An anon on OCMB said this is the word used at the end of French films.

Authorities are now following up on the information I have provided and are curious why an Internet thread.. that contains information that points to parental neglect & child abuse... would be removed from a website.. only the mods on WWP can answer that. A SD police detective informed me that there are legal steps that have to be taken before a parent releases a child into the custody of a religious organization, that steps are taken by the court to monitor the safety and care of that child with the custodian... "Releasing a child into a slave labor environment is never OK and it is illegal."

Looking for information & the whereabouts of Jet (Jorge) Arazz.. age 14.

The mother that turned over her young son to the SO is Kenya Smythe https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1062187228. Originally from the San Diego area, she now lives in Colorado with her boyfriend, Tim Metevier, who has a young daughter. I have no idea if this is also Kenya's daughter. She has referred to her other son, Santiago, who's being cared for by her parents in Puerto Rico.

This is Kenya in December 2011..

Image

A woman in Taiwan, Hope Tan, posted photos of Kenya's son on her Facebook wall when he was 6 years old and living in La Jolla (near San Diego). There is a photo of Hope Fan with Jet when he was 6. No photos of Jet with his mother. Weird.

https://www.facebook.com/HopeFan

It seems like Jet is a throw-away child. Who's advocating for him? What if this 14 year old wants to leave the Sea Org? Who's advocating for the child? This is so sad.

Can you copy over the mother's message? What was the thread she was posting on, in case she comes back?

The woman's Facebook page is Kenya Smythe.. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1062187228. The message she posted about her son has been removed from her Facebook wall, but not the photo. Obviously, OSA read the thread or my FB post before WWP deleted the "thetan on my mirror" thread.

Despite the lady deleting the message from her FB page, WWP mods have the screenprint. I know the mods keep removed threads in a mod-controlled area, so the info is not deleted. Woe to them if they delete it. They may have to answer to the authorities for deleting potential evidence.

The woman in the photo with Jet Arranz is Brenda Marie, a Latino singer. Her photo album is loaded with photos from the Freewinds.

https://www.facebook.com/brendamariepr

According to this link, Kenya, Jet Arranz & a Nigel Hoyt contributed $20,000 to the San Diego Org Fundraising Project..

VANGUARD WITH HONORS $20,000 - Nigel Hoyt, Kenya Smythe & Jet Arranz.

ALUMNI $5,000 - Juan Arranz.

If the boy is there illegally which in this case amounts to abandonment by his mother there is no reason why
children's protective services can't get a court order for his removal, go in there with the police and get him out of there. That's the way they do it in Florida.

Sounds like a letter to the Governor of that sate and other public officials needs to go out. I bet they would take action if they knew what happened to Danial Montlavo. Besides this looking like a Hitler Youth indoctrination and it reeks of child abuse. five to one he is not getting a state mandated education. There is no way he can if he is in the Sea Org.

No, she is not upset. Read the screenprint. She turned her 12-year old son over to the Sea Org.

I understand somewhat. Can't a parent put their child legally into the SO? Sort of like putting your child in a military academy or private boarding school? I know its scientology, but is it not the parents legal right?

If Jet's mother posted recently that Jet is 12 and that Jet joined Cadet org in May 2010, Jet could have been as young as 10 when he joined. Since the mother publicly announced this info, and Smurf exactly repeated her and and alerted authorities, I don't see a problem with discussing this on OCMB, especially when Aaron Sexton recently described how cadet org children are abused.* Maybe whyweprotest was worried about showing the child's photo - but Smurf isn't criticizing or bullying the child, or advocating harassing the child as he walks here and there. He seems to be advocating letting the police handle this. It's also more likely if the situation becomes publicly known, that the police WILL do something.

If a mother is naive about how she has signed her son into slavery, and she blabs about it and posts his photo, she should inform herself better. It's not up to us to enable her to sail through life boasting of her good decision, when her son isn't getting an education and is being exploited. The fact that someone got to her and made her take down her facebook page shows that the mother is already starting to realize that her decision may have been very wrong.

Are there other locations besides San Diego that Jet could be in?

You're right.. very observant. I misread it and presumed the kid was 14 now. I can't read Aaron's thread because I'm banned on WWP.

Even though the Cadet Org was disbanded years ago, parents can still surrender their children to the SO. "If someone who already has children wants to join, the children have to sign the contract, too." http://www.exscientologykids.com/seaorg.html

The courts don't recognize contracts signed by minors that have not yet reached the age of consent (18).

Below is the meat of Aaron's post about the cadet org & sea org. The post starts with him explaining his position in CMO and then lists the names of those he recruited, then it says:

The next topic I will record is that of the Cadet Org. The Cadet Org. What is the Cadet Org? In every major Sea Org International location, an organization was established to house, furnish, feed, educate, and train all young members of the Sea Organization. Whilst not considered young members of the Sea Organization, being the children of Sea Org members entitled them to such a title, and as such, they were financed and protected by the Sea Organization. Branches were established: one in the Flag Land Base and one in Los Angeles. The one in Los Angeles, out in Ventura County, where some 30 to 50 odd young Sea Org members were housed between the ages of 4 to 13. During this time they received "an education in the real world" and "an education in Scientology." However, as young members, they were given instructions and treated like Sea Org members. They had jobs, positions to do, wore hats, and slept in berthing not unlike what Sea Org members also went through. They were allowed and permitted very little time with their parents. The Ventura location County was so far away from the Sea Org location in Los Angeles that it was a physical impossibility for the children to really associate with their parents in any great extent.

The advantage of a Cadet Org is that it gave the Sea Organization a very unique resource pool: people that have not been exposed to the outside world, people that were fully indoctrinated in Scientology and had already agreed to join the Sea Organization at a later date when they are old enough to legally be able to be permitted. It should be noted here that, "legally permitted" ... I mean ... when we felt ... in the Sea Org, we could get away with it, legally enough to avoid prosecution.

At the Cadet Org, several illegal activities were undisclosed, such as... Often, Sea Org cadets would be involved in sexual activities at a young age of 13. While it's not illegal to do this with another underage person, there were instances, such as the Flag Land Base of one particular recruit, Sarah is an example, from the Cadet Organization, in 1992, having sex with people over the ages of 16 and 18. Primarily, this occurred during the Estates Project Force training. Here, all details of these were withheld from the police and not reported. This also occurred at the Ventura County, and all unusual relationship activities of all children were never reported to the police, even if they involved adults.

Why did the Sea Org like to enjoy the recruitment of young people? The answer lay in the history of the CMO. The CMO, the Commodore's Messenger Organization, was established on the ship by L. Ron Hubbard, aka the "Commodore" of the Sea Org. Young children provided a very unique perspective: one, they were easily taught, easily trained, and could easily be made to worship or deify a senior authority or person. When they saw the horrors of the Sea Organization, such as heavy ethics and justice, it wasn't hard to convince a person to join the CMO. CMO typically, from continent to continent, and particularly in Los Angeles, enjoyed a higher level of berthing conditions, food conditions, and welfare conditions above any other members of the Sea Org. Also, being children, they would naturally have a fear of adults. Being in the CMO was of a great advantage, because here they were made authoritative and given total authority over all other Sea Org members. This gave them the authority they needed to feel protected. Also, love-bombing, a commonly documented technique in cults, was very prevalent in the CMO. CMO ate away from the rest of the Sea Org, we berthed away from the rest of the Sea Org, and we had our own separate quarters, our own separate musters and conditions. Such an environment was very conducive to young children. As an example, in the Commodore's Messenger Organization in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Guaranty Building, very few messengers were over the age of 18. This created a good, unique environment for children to thrive in, where they felt they were part of a similar group of people.

Policies in the Sea Org that allowed us to bring the children in at such an early age did not exist. Simply, what existed was the desire to have Sea Org members. I recruited public Scientologists as young as 15 years of age to come into the Sea Org and join the CMO. Why did the parents permit this? The parents permitted this because, primarily, they knew that if their children joined an organization such as Bridge Publications Incorporated or Celebrity Center International, they would receive some form of status and better treatment than the average Sea Org member. However, allowing them into the CMO offered their children a very unique chance to be part of a more elite group.

Also, within the CMO, we provided and guaranteed education to our children. However, none of this was ever delivered. In fact, the moment a person started working for the CMO, no education was allowed at all. However, we had a legal responsibility in regards to allowing children to be educated. How we got around this is that there were several educators involved in the WISE group, called "World International Scientology Enterprises Incorporated", around the world, and these educators existed in Los Angeles, and what would happen is we would pay them and we would send one of the Messengers out. And what they would do is what was known as a pre-examination, where they were actually given the actual exam required to pass the legal requirements. They would always fail, because they hadn't received an education. What would then happen is the answers were fed to the children over a period of several hours and then they were given the exam "for real." Of course, they would pass the examination. Passing the examination, they were then given a certificate of educational requirements. The Office of Special Affairs in Los Angeles and all Church of Scientology International directors were well aware of the scam. However, legally, it couldn't be rebuffed, as the parents of Scientologists would not refute that this had actually happened, and they would stand by their children and say they had received an education, even when they had not. The last known example of this that I was involved in was the sending of Suzette Barnett to the International Base. Her mother, a prominent Scientologist out in the field, condoned and accepted her daughter to go through illegal certification of her educational requirements in order to facilitate her daughter rising through the ranks of Scientology.

I want to outline to the politicians and the media that may be listening to this audio presentation the severe results of our actions. The result of these actions resulted in children that no longer pursued sports, no longer pursued arts, crafts, or any other form of career, and as a result, the children grew up without having any other options in their life, other than to pursure careers within the Sea Organization. In particular, children that had grown up in the Cadet Organization were literally condemned to a life within the Sea Org, regardless of what they wanted, because their parents were in it, and they hadn't known anything in their entire lives. Children that were recruited publicly and then put into the CMO had a second option: if they did leave the Sea Organization, they could hypothetically get another career. However, if years had passed between these dates, they were now young adults and would no longer be qualified to go through standard educational lines. This is one of the reasons why parents of Sea Org members, particularly young Sea Org members, often assist and keep their children within the Sea Org after this, and once they decide to leave. It is because they know that they can't particularly have much of a career outside of the Sea Org.

I have provided this very brief information as a guide to others out there about just how many children were involved in this in Los Angeles and the ages of those children. There isn't a single person I have named that cannot be contacted and have verified through their personnel records that they were in fact in the Sea Org at too early of an age. Such staff members such as Dan Modras and Zane Hollingsworth are clear examples, including Tyrone Webb, of people being allowed in at far too early of an age.

It would be impossible for the Church of Scientology International to deny the existence of such a program to recruit young people, and I stand by to assist with anybody who wishes more information.

Children under 12 are not allowed to work in most states, and children ages 12-13 are only allowed to work on vacations and holidays.* Jet's mother didn't say he was in school, she said he was Commanding Officer of the Cadets.
COMMANDING OFFICER?? You can't hold a job like that working only on vacations and holidays. Jet is likely working full time, and occasionally doing something educational. Training routines are not accredited school subjects. CoS is violating Calif. child labor laws. Parents can sign their children over to a school or even to reform school, they can't sign a 10 or 11 year old to work full time.
COMMANDING OFFICER? That implies the other children look up to him, so they may be younger, and WORKING too. Whatever the cadets' ages, how mature can a 12 year old commanding officer be? Did Jet's mom ever read Lord of the Flies? Maybe Jet is wise beyond his years, but if so, he should be getting a good education so he can be a real commanding officer many years from now.
