The Scientology Center security guard who shot and killed a man wielding two swords, threatening him and others, will not be charged by the district attorney. Investigators and prosecutors both agree that the 64-year-old retired cop from Seal Beach shot in self defense. UCLA alumnus Mario Majorski had been a problem for the church before. On Sunday, November 23rd, he pulled up to the Scientology Celebrity Centre in Hollywood parking lot with two swords. The scene was so out of place, that it wasn't. One witness, who saw the incident begin, walked by and into the building not thinking much of it. "I thought it was part of a show," the teenager said. Oh, Hollywood.
