On Saturday, February 9, 2019, Brandon Reisdorf was returned to jail and held without bail for violating his criminal restraining order, appearing at the San Diego Church of Scientology to harass Church staff and parishioners. Reisdorf was photographed trying to enter the Church through a side door just days after he had made a new threat against Scientologists.
Reisdorf, convicted of a felony hate crime, was put on Leah Remini’s A&E show and praised for vandalizing the Church after making assassination threats.
Whistleblowers have described how Remini has coached those on her show to incite hatred against Scientology and how A&E’s “documentary” sources are compensated for their participation.
The Church has warned A&E numerous times that its programming has led to more than 600 threats of violence and demanded that the show be stopped, but A&E executives have shamelessly taken no action.
