If someone could contribute an explanation or description of the site... it  would be great. We will post it here.

1979, middle Oct.

Gilman Hot Springs - a faded  resort straddling Route 79 between Riverside and Palm Springs. Its 550 acres  boasted a yellowing golf course, a decrepit motel, the Massacre Canyon Inn, and  a collection of miscellaneous buildings in various states of disrepair, one of  them a house satirically named 'Bonnie View'. The entire property had been  purchased for $2.7 million cash... (Miller:  "Bare-faced Messiah", pg. 359)

  1. In 1991 I had to prepare the base so that it could be  defended against the possibility of being taken over by the authorities in a  time of crisis. There are approx. 750 people at the base. I was in charge of  a project designing the base security system, the perimeter fence, the ultra  razor barriers, the lighting of the perimeter fence, the electronic  monitors, the concealed microphones, the ground sensors, the motion sensors  and hidden cameras which were installed and all over the area -- even  outside the base.
  2. Church monies were used to purchase semi-automatic  assault rifles (HK 91 assault rifles capable of firing 300-350 rounds of  ammunition a minute, .45 caliber pistols, .380 automatic weapons and twelve  gauge shotguns were stockpiled. These weapons were not registered. Church  monies were also used to buy the ammunition.
  3. Church monies were also used to purchase a large amount  of pounds of gunpowder for the construction of various types of explosive  devices to be used in the defense of the base.
  4. The motorcycle guards were trained to carry loaded cocked  45 caliber pistols. The eagle scout, mounted high above the base, was  trained to carry a high powered rifle with a telescopic scope. There is also  a 1,000 millimeter telescope up with 'eagle'.
  5. I developed three classifications of intruder and  established the level of deadly force to use for each. In addition to  firearms, the guards were taught how to effectively wield little batons. The  basic things like striking to the center of the heart, the center of the  solar plex and then to the side of the head, etc.
  6. At church expense, I trained the security guards and other base personnel  in the use of these weapons and explosives. I also trained them in the close  quarter use of fatal force. We built a combat range for training purposes  and I instructed Scientologists on various ways of shooting people. I also  trained them in night vision and ambush techniques. We used a ravine that  was a natural round shield so the noise would not cause any noisy inquiries.
