I am personally convinced I helped create the hysteria that put Paul Ingram
in jail. In 1986 I participated in a video called AMERICA'S BEST KEPT SECRET
in which Mike Warnke also appeared. Because I was a cop and also a Christian
I believed other Christians who told horrific satanic stories would certainly
not fabricate their accounts. I later taught a state certified police course
in CA called OCCULT CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION teaching some 5,000 law
enforcement personnel. After about 4-5 years of teaching the existence of
satanic criminals rife in America I was challenged to examine the evidence.
In order to disprove my critics, I realized it was I who had been
buffaloed. Prior I participated in other video documentaries such as IN THE
NAME OF SATAN; DEVIL WORSHIP, THE RISE OF SATANISM; HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT
and a few other local documentaries in L.A. When I changed my viewpoint due
to the lack of empirical research or physical evidence to support the SRA
claims I was quickly ostracised by my colleagues. As a matter of fact I was
earlier criticized in the Skeptical Enquirer as a catalyst of fear.
Naturally I felt this group was closet satanists. Nonethless I have sent
letters to the companies who produced these video's urging them to remove
them due to their gross inaccuracies. The ONLY video removed was AMERICA'S
BEST KEPT SECRET. America has been hoodwinked and many other cops have also
bought into this modern myth. I can only hope empirical research will help
those like Paul. I wrote an article called OCCULT COP which was published in
a journal called ISSUES IN CHILD ABUSE ACCUSATIONS which outlines my journey
through occult research to where it brought me today.
