Former Scientologist Recounts 'Torturous' Past Inside the Church - 2009-03-31
The Church of Scientology believes one woman, Maureen Bolstad, is one of the worst people in the world. She is one of a few to be declared a "suppressive person."
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard declared so-called "suppressive" people "cannot be granted the rights ordinarily accorded rational beings." Her crime? Talking to the media about the church.
Bolstad was recruited into the Church of Scientology at age 16. She was told she'd get an education, and the chance to see the world.
Twenty-six years later, Bolstad walks down Gilman Springs Road near Hemet where Scientology's world headquarters is located. She walks with a sense of fear.
