Hello, This WE I was watching a documentary about abuses and people being locked inside room for days, weeks, months. That made me think of my EXIT from the PAC BASE. This is my story but many did get through the same Exit. 1. When I was seen in Ethics, by my Ethics Office, the PAC Security, I was told that I was going to sleep in a room alone. This meant, I was being put on WATCH ! Someone from HCO was outside all night long to make sure I was not going to run away. 2. I was in that room for about 1 month. I could go out on the stairs few minutes a day. 3. I was then put into an auditing room (One near the Security Guard office). I was not allowed to go out. I was staying in there from 9 am til 10 pm. This went on for 2 months. My food was brought in there, I was told to write my Overts and Withholds. Every time I tought I was done, I was told to write some more... It went on to a point where I was kind of "making up overts and withhold". I had write over 1000 of them. 4. After those 2 months, I was put inside a room in the basement with some others who were going out. I did not know they were so many. About 20 people. We were made to read books, listening to lectures, write more OW... 5. I moved from that room to a doorm with the guys getting out. There was also a doorm for women. We were all in there at night, speaking, reading, nattering... 6. One guys had been there for 1 year and was still not out. 7. I waited 3 more months to start my Sec Check. Proccess to get out of there. 8. After 10 sessions, I thought I was done... I was again being SecCheck... it went on and It was going nowhere. bugging... 9. I Waited another 3 months for my Comm-Ev... which one lasted 1 more month. 10. We were not allowed to go outside, but stay in that room all day long. The only place we could go was on the stairwell to get some space above LA. 11. My auditing went wrong and was assigned a new auditor. It took again weeks... In the meantime some people were going, happy to finally be OUT ! Those guys had been there 8, 9, 10 months or 1 year 1/2... When I left, I had been there for 10 months... Looking at it now, I was soooo brainwashed that I agreed with it. Now, I would have ran out... and tell them to get F---.
