While I was in the Sea Org, I probably wrote more "knowledge reports" and "job endangerment chits" on Kenny than I did on any other single staff member. He was continually committing crimes on finance "lines". He gave many "illegal discounts" on training and auditing in violation of HCO PL 27 September 1970 "Cutative Prices", HCO PL 23 September 1964 "Cost of Service" and HCO PL 27 April 1965 Issue II "Price Engram".

As his overspending was chronic and repeated, I decided to withhold $5.00 from his pay, in accordance with HCO PL 2 June 1959 "Purchasing Liability of Staff Members", to go towards repaying the unauthorized expenditure.

The assault incident occurred around 1981 in connection with this incident. Kenny had sent a subordinate to my office on Friday night to pick up his pay. Upon finding out that his pay had been docked $5.00 he flew into a rage; I heard him yell my name from down the hall a few doors away. Next, he stormed into my office yelling, "I’m gonna *kill* you!", while shoving me backwards with both arms against my chest. The force sent me over backwards into my desk, injuring my back badly. I wrote this incident up, but the "Ethics Officer" did nothing about it.

Kenny’s behavior is one of the many reasons I decided to leave the Sea Org. He was an "OT3" at the time. I realized that being "OT" gave many Scientologists license (in their minds) to commit criminal acts. And Scientology management condoned it through its lack of action in the form of *failing* to do anything.
