Ron Miscavige makes up stories about his past and likes to play the victim. Unfortunately for him, it is hard to believe anything coming out of the mouth of a man who beat his wife, according to him, once a month for 10 years—that is 120 times! But according to his daughters, it was far more frequent and far more severe than Ron ever lets on. He admitted to choking her at times. The daughters have stated it was so bad, Ron broke their mother’s ribs.
Ron was accused of criminal attempt of rape, indecent assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering, criminal trespass and burglary in Pennsylvania. He was arrested and booked on these charges.
Then in 1985, Ron was accused of criminal attempt of rape, indecent assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering, criminal trespass and burglary in Pennsylvania. He was arrested and booked on these charges. Ron had no one to turn to in order to help him after being accused of a serious crime other than the son he now falsely vilifies. Ron’s younger son, David, did what any family member would do—he helped Ron.
David retained top lawyers to defend Ron. While the Church will not debate Ron’s guilt or innocence regarding these charges, the police report regarding the attempted rape undermines Ron’s attempt to whitewash this horrific incident by claiming that the matter was merely a case of mistaken identity. The police report details evidence showing that Ron admitted to being on the premises on the occasion of the crime, that Ron matched the description of the assailant and further that Ron's car was identified by a witness. Thanks to David and the attorneys he hired, the charges were dismissed. Ron can claim that a judge eventually dismissed the charges, but the actual reason the case was resolved cannot be verified, as no records relating to the case beyond the police report are available.
Ron’s younger son, David, did what any family member would do—he helped Ron.
As a condition for helping him, David insisted that Ron agree to join the Church’s religious order to straighten out his life and stay out of trouble. Ron joined the religious order, the Sea Organization, working as a trumpet player at the Church’s Golden Era Productions, where he remained for 27 years and, for the most part, kept out of trouble.
If Ron were honest about those years, he would speak about what it is like to play trumpet for 27 years in a Church backup band, he would speak about the musicians that he worked with daily, whom he traveled the world with as a trumpet player, and that Ron lived a full and enjoyable life.
Ron lived a full and enjoyable life.
So when Ron tells his stories of a hard life, being a victim, whining, having to “escape” to the good life, it is almost laughable had his dishonesty and malintent not been so bad. But the truth can be found in pictures, like these, which show the reality that as a member of the Golden Era Musicians, Ron Miscavige had the time of his life with a gig most musicians only dream of, touring Europe and playing in such exotic locations as the Caribbean, England, France, Switzerland and many more. A far cry from his life now.
All that is the past. A past Ron gave up and now lies about. A past he pretends not to miss but in truth were his only glory days.
Instead of accepting the truth and living out his life in peace, Ron now involves himself in the activities of a small group of anti-Scientologists, ones who have engaged in extortion against Ron’s own family, and Ron lets them use him in their campaign of lies. All for what? To make money. To make a buck, Ron turned his back on his family and turned his back on the truth.
Living a life telling stories that bear no resemblance to the truth is pretty sad, especially when pictures and documents don’t lie.
