Bentinho Massarro -
A Discussion of a "Monster"
A friend wrote to me about Bentinho Massarro, who for over five years (thanks to Be Scofield) has been known publicly to behave abominably. Much about him is detailed in the links below.
In my limited research into this "spiritual leader," nothing has been found that would give Bentinho Massarro the slightest bit of credibity. Nothing has shown up that indicates he should not be in prison or in a psych ward rather than roaming free and preying upon the weak, the innocent, and the gullible.Is there anything good about Bentinho Massarro?
If so, you could share it here. Also, if you wish to add to his list of felonies and misdemeanors, this is a good place for those, too. (Warning - simply cheerleading for "your teacher" is not encouraged on this site. Now is attacking those who "unjustly make 'false' accusations about your hero. Facts - please.)
I was surprised that in doing a search of this site, the name "Bentinho Massarro" did not appear, hence this new "Discussion." Unlike the criminal rapist James Swartz, I don't know any of Bentinho's victims, so this is not personal for me. Still, the word needs to be spread wide warning people of Bentnho Massarro.
