Mark Masters arrested for domestic violence

Like father like son it would seem as Mark Masters was arrested last month for allegedly assaulting his wife in front of their children and this will come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Roy Masters over the decades as he has bragged endlessly about his street fighting and brawling which behaviour would seem at odds with his professed religiosity forever extolling as he does the virtues of gentle Jesus  meek and mild.Just one more contradiction to add to all the others of this fake charlatan and thuggish bully who surprise surprise is a fervent supporter of authrotairian Il Douce bag Trump who only last week was expressing his desire to smash a detractor in the face and send him to hospital.

I agree, the Masters family all tend to hide behind a righteous false front, behind the scenes they're scam artists and right-wing extremist nut bags. If the allegations are true, whether it was physical violence or merely verbal threats of violence and intimidation, then it doesn't please me that such an awful thing has happened; however, I'm glad when cult leaders are exposed and the truth is revealed.

Thank you, too, for speaking out. I enjoy reading your running commentaries on this fascinating subject matter.

For the kids, seeing that has to really be something that stays with them a lifetime. They are helpless to do anything, they blame themselves, and later in life many kids go on to do what their parents did because that is all they know. They become abusers or victims, and the cycle continues until they get the right help too.

Wow, Eliseo -- you're a bail bondsman? These are things you have first-hand knowledge of on a daily basis, I'm sure. You're correct, it can be devastating to the children who have to witness it.

There's likely a gag order on this entire story as you can't find anything published about it since January. I happened to get a really good screen-grab of the original post by a former colleague of Mark Masters, and it included the arrest record and the subsequent threatening email from Masters. It was immediately redacted and is unsearchable today, of course because the Masters family doesn't want any airing of their dirty laundry. However, arrest records are a matter of public record and can be reviewed by anyone willing to pay the $15 fee for getting a copy from the Oregon Repository.

Shall we say the sins of the father have visited the son? One could also say, the more self-righteous the cult leader, the bigger the fall.
