Areas of study to consider when researching Gang Stalking

In researching Gang Stalking there are many factors to be considered. It’s not a subject matter that should be studied lightly. Also the average psychiatrist if not familiar with some of the other issues that are affecting members of many communities might not be able to make an iron clad assessment without looking at several factors. Here are factors that I think should be considered.

Areas to be aware of when studying Gang Stalking.

Workplace Mobbing.

It’s our nearest and dearest cousin on an emotional and psychological level. The methodology used in workplace mobbing are some of the same that we see happening with Gang Stalking.

The Snitching system

Websites such as http://www.November.org are doing a really nice job of showing the world the other side of snitching, and it’s true affect on society.

Also Alexandra Natapoff has done some wonderful research into the wider and more impacting issues of the Informant system and how it’s affecting members of some communities. In some areas over 50% or more of ethnic communities had been inducted into becoming police informants. Both men and women.

http://www.lls.edu/academics/faculty/natapoff-snitching.html

From what I have seen, the numbers are higher than this and it’s no longer limited to the communities focused on in her research.

Community Based Policing

This method of policing is changing how societies think, react and interact. It’s basically turning our communities into societies like what they have in China, had in Russia, or East Germany. There is a U.N. agenda called 2020 that seeks to adapt this model for every country in the world by 2020.

http://www.albionmonitor.com/9711b/policing.html

“Ruling the community with an iron fist. “Savvy law enforcement types realized that under the community policing rubric, cops, community groups, local companies, private foundations, citizen informants and federal agencies could form alliances without causing public outcry.” Covert Action Quarterly, summer 1997.”

Crisis Centers

When I tried to follow up on some of the research that “Norma” over at gangstalking.ca had done in conjunction with crisis center I found out that these are some of the places that targets were turning to for help. Before the Gang Stalking websites were available, woman and to a much smaller extent men were calling the crisis centers, more specifically the Rape Crisis Center to get some help, or to find anyone who knew about Gang (Organised) Stalking.

See what some of these psychiatrist do not realise is that before the websites were available, the beliefs were not going away. People were not accepting the false explanation that they were delusional. This was in many cases, too, real, to obvious, and far too life impacting. So when the police failed, doctors, psychiatrists, etc. They were calling the crisis centers.

Online before the Gang Stalking websites, they were visiting Mobbing, Conspiracy, Bullying, and mind control sites. These were the only places that were close to having any information, shared stories, or experiences that might help the target to further understand what they were going through.

Systemic corruption.

Before his death Tim Fields who shed some much needed light on the Bully phenomenon also saw a very obvious pattern of collusion amongst the targets that were seeking help. He started to research it and then passed away before he could get further.

http://www.bullyonline.org/action/obstruct.htm

Tim Fields is not the only person to have noticed this type of systemic corruption when it comes time to finding help for issues of Bullying, Workplace Mobbing, etc but he might have been the one to shed the brightest light on it, had he lived.

Unchecked Surveillance

The unchecked surveillance that is happening to many private citizens all across the globe. We live in a new reality, but the diagnosis is the same. Think you are being followed around? Must be paranoia. Yet had the family in this article gone for help, thinking they were being spied upon, they might well have been diagnosed as paranoid, when in fact their concerns would have been fully warranted.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-559130/Why-didnt-just-knock-door-ask-couple-tailed-weeks-council-spies.html?printingPage=true

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/columnists/article-559123/Why-earth-Stasi-state-spying-families.html

This very average, unassuming family were spied upon, 24/7, followed around by (Informants) Covert Human Intelligence Sources, had their play by play activity recorded, all because someone thought they were falsifying the school district that they lived in. This is just a glimpse at what our societies have turned into and how these laws and unchecked surviellances ae being used and abused, to the unchecked power that has been handed out to many branches within society.

Lastly is the concern or question of wither Gang Stalking website help to enhance, or feed a delusion, and can these website prevent someone from seeking help for an illness?

It’s a great question and one that no one can answer definitively. If someone believes that something is wrong and traditional points of reference are not providing answers or a solution, they will clearly look towards other points of healing. This is what was happening with Gang Stalking.

Before the websites were here, the beliefs were still held by individuals. When the websites were not here, people were still desperately seeking help and assistance. They were using outside sources which at times could not always formulate a basis of reference for what they were experiencing, but they were still using those points of references, because it was the best available at the time.

If someone goes to a mobbing website and it confirms a belief that they already have that co-workers are out to get them, then it’s up to the individual how they further choose to use the information. The same is true with someone using the bullying website who believes that there is collusion within the system and that is what is happening to them.

The Gang Stalking websites are here, just like mobbing, bullying, etc and they are providing information, research, and shared experiences for the website visitor that chooses to review and consider the information provided.

The Structure of our oppression

The Structure of our oppression.

The following article will try to put into perspective some of the societal structures that are most likely responsible for the targeting some of those in the Targeted Individual community are experiencing.

For years Targeted Individuals have been saying that they are being followed around, stalked, monitored while at home, and out in public. They have complained of a system that is capable of 24/7 surveillance, able to harassment at home, work, in the community, and even while traveling abroad. For several years there has been a great deal of disbelief that such occurrences could even be possible. The follow article, will try to explain referencing sources already available and documented how this could be happening.

The following article represents the views and opinions of the GangStalkingWorld.com website and does not necessarily reflect the views of any other person, or website in the community.

It has long been a widely expressed view that the monitoring is being done by various groups of citizen informants, members of various community policing type programs. Based on recent research conducted it seems most likely that the people being used to follow Targeted Individuals around are what society and the government in some countries refer to as, “covert human intelligence sources”. They can also be known as own as Citizen Informants. Another slang terms that is often used to describe these individuals is the term Snitch or Snitches.

Covert human intelligence sources

A recent article came out in the London Telegraph, saying that Children as young as 8 are being employed by the state as “Covert human intelligence sources” aka Snitches. Targeted Individuals often complain that the harassment is being perpetrated by all members of the community including children.

Children are being hired and used by the government to spy on their neighbors in the Uk. and “being encouraged to photograph or video neighbors guilty of dog fouling, littering or “bin crimes” The article says there are “hundreds of Junior Streetwatchers, aged 8-10 years old, who are trained to identify and report enviro-crime issues such as graffiti and fly-tipping.” The adult spies according to authorities are recruited via newspaper ads.

[quote]”Other local authorities recruit adult volunteers through advertisements in local newspapers, with at least 4,841 people already patrolling the streets in their spare time.

Some are assigned James Bond-style code numbers, which they use instead of their real names when they ring a special informer’s hotline.

This escalation in Britain’s growing surveillance state follows an outcry about the way councils are using powers originally designed to combat terrorism and organised crime to spy on residents. In one case, a family was followed by council staff for almost three weeks after being wrongly accused of breaking rules on school catchment areas.” 1[/quote]

Community Oriented Policing

Though the article primarily focuses on the United Kingdom, it should be noted that other countries are setting up such community structures, via community oriented policing programs. These programs are a

[quote]”a systemic approach to policing with the paradigm of instilling and fostering a sense of community, within a geographical neighborhood, to improve the quality of life. It achieves this through the decentralization of the police and the implementation of a synthesis of three key components: (1) strategic-oriented policing—the redistribution of traditional police resources; (2) neighborhood-oriented policing—the .interaction of police and all community members to reduce crime and the fear of crime through indigenous proactive programs; and (3) problem-oriented policing-a concerted effort to resolve the causes of crime rather than the symptoms. ” 2[/quote]

Fusion Centers

The ACLU has released a report on Fusion Centers. 800,000 operatives will be dispersed throughtout every American city and town. Set to report on even the most common everyday behaviors which will go into state, local and regional, linked data bases. These linked databases are not just emerging in the United States, they have already emerged in many countries around the world in the wake of implied terrorist threats.

[quote]”We pointed out that, while diverse and often still in the early stages of formation, they often seem to be characterized by ambiguous lines of authority, excessive secrecy, troubling private-sector and military participation, and an apparent bent toward suspicionless information collection and datamining.” 3[/quote]

The article then goes on to point out that in a short space of many of the warning in the report had come to pass. The article talks about the fact that this apparatus is responsible for watching and recording the everyday activity of a growing number of individuals. The reports are then gathered together and then they are accessible to any law enforcement agency that is a part of these fusion centers.

[quote]”In the six months since our report, new press accounts have borne out many of our warnings. In just that short time, news accounts have reported overzealous intelligence gathering, the expansion of uncontrolled access to data on innocent people, hostility to open government laws, abusive entanglements between security agencies and the private sector, and lax protections for personally identifiable
information.
Overall, it is becoming increasingly clear that fusion centers are part of a new domestic intelligence apparatus. The elements of this nascent domestic surveillance system include:
• Watching and recording the everyday activities of an ever-growing list of individuals
• Channeling the flow of the resulting reports into a centralized security agency
• Sifting through (“data mining”) these reports and databases with computers to identify individuals for closer scrutiny
Such a system, if allowed to permeate our society, would be nothing less than the creation of a total surveillance society.” 3[/quote]

These fusion center will have the capacity to circumvent laws that are in place to limit federal vs local authorities and the access that each has to specific information.

[quote]”Even more troubling is the fact that these centers are networked together and seamlessly exchange information with the intelligence community through the Director of National Intelligence’s Information Sharing Environment (ISE). The Washington Post report was based on a document produced from a survey of fusion centers, which shows their intent to maximize the access each of the fusion centers has to the various databases. This would allow a state fusion center that under state law or local policy is prohibited from buying credit reports, as an example, to circumvent its own restrictions by simply calling a
fusion center in Pennsylvania to and asking Pennsylvania authorities to access the records it wants to analyze. This “policy shopping” process guts state and local privacy protections and gives the participating agencies, including the federal intelligence community, access to information they may not legally have on their own.” 3[/quote]

These centers if allowed to expand will create a one way justice system. Your information, even your daily activities will be allowed to be gathered, collected, and possibly used against you. When you then request information to confirm if you are a target of surveillance, the information will be stored in a secret database and not available for you to access.

[quote]”Even as fusion centers are positioned to learn more and more about the American public, authorities are moving to ensure that the public knows less and less about fusion centers. In particular, there appears to be an effort by the federal government to coerce states into exempting their fusion centers from state open government laws.31 For those living in Virginia, it’s already too late; the Virginia General Assembly passed a law in April 2008 exempting the state’s fusion center from the Freedom of Information Act.32

According to comments by the commander of the Virginia State Police Criminal Intelligence Division and the administrative head of the center, the federal government pressured Virginia into passing the law, with the threat of withholding classified information if it didn’t.33 Such efforts suggest there is a real danger
fusion centers will become a “one-way mirror” in which citizens are subject to ever-greater scrutiny by the authorities, even while the authorities are increasingly protected from scrutiny by the public.” 3[/quote]

Public Employees

The next aspect of the targeted that has been reported by the Targeted Individual community is the fact that public servants seem to be taking a part in the continuous monitoring and harassment private citizens. American Civil servants, firefighters, police officers, Corporate Employees, learning to collect data and spy. The information then goes into secret data bases. They will also communicate in code. Many targets have expressed a belief not only that they are being tracked, but that their stalkers are communicating via a one handed sign language similar to that which the Stasi used.

Watch Video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU-xsQ3Xepw

[quote]”They are entrusted with hunting for “suspicious activity,” and then they report their findings, which end up in secret government databases.

What constitutes “suspicious activity,” of course, is in the eye of the beholder. But a draft Justice Department memo on the subject says that such things as “taking photos of no apparent aesthetic value” or “making notes” could constitute suspicious activity, Finley wrote. ” 4[/quote]

Not only will this program used the civil servant already mentioned, but it will expand who is used in the program. They will have secret sources of communication available to them. The members of these programs will connect with the fusion centers. None disclosure agreement or a confidential disclosure agreements will be signed by many in these programs to ensure that the information is protected.

[quote]”And the private sector would be involved, too. “The program would eventually be expanded to include Health Care personnel and representatives from private, critical infrastructure entities, with communication systems specifically tailored to their needs.”

In this regard, Terrorism Liaison Officers resemble InfraGard members. (See “The FBI Deputizes Business”.) This FBI-private sector liaison group now consists of more than 26,000 members, who have their own secure channels of communication and are shielded, as much as possible, from scrutiny.

Terrorism Liaison Officers connect up with so-called “Fusion Centers”: intelligence sharing among public safety agencies as well as the private sector. The Department of Justice has come up with “Fusion Center Guidelines” that discuss the role of private sector participants.

“The private sector can offer fusion centers a variety of resources,” it says, including “suspicious incidents and activity information.”

It also recommends shielding the private sector. “To aid in sharing this sensitive information, a Non-Disclosure Agreement may be used. The NDA provides private sector entities an additional layer of security, ensuring the security of private sector proprietary information and trade secrets,” the document states.” 4[/quote]

Other than the United States many other countries have similar programs in place where they have requested that public servants in the course of doing their day to day activities keep an eye out on what is happening.

Stalking and Monitoring.

Though I do not in believe the family in this video are targets of Gang Stalking I will say that the example shown explains very well how someone could be stalked, monitored and spied on 24/7 as this family was. I do not believe they are targets of Gang Stalking, because Gang Stalking is often covert, what this family experienced was extremely overt and left behind lot’s of verification and proof, the harassment targeted individuals experience does not often offer any overt evidence.

The stalking they believe was done primarily using their cell-phone. They were followed 24/7. Their phone conversations listened to. When the mother was in the kitchen making lemonade, the phone rang, and the caller told her, he preferred limes. When the family heard someone at their door in the middle of the night banging, they called the police, when the police arrived the invaders had already left. After the police left this happened again, the family called the police, the invaders had left, this happened a third time and finally the family stopped trying. After filing a complaint with the police, the family were sent a recording of their conversation with the police, by the stalker. They installed a camera system, the stalker called to say that he already knew the code.

The list goes on, and apparently there were a total of three families in the area that the cell phone stalking happened to. The case has received wide media attention, including the Tyra Banks show. There is technology out there designed to do this. A company which I will not name in this report, has a service for cheating spouses, where you can use a phone to know where they are and listen into their conversations. There are also programs which will allow the camera on a phone to be used to spy on the person with the camera phone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV_I7cgkqXc

[quote]”The families say the calls come in at all hours of the night, threatening to kill their children, their pets and grandparents. Voice mails arrive, playing recordings of their private conversations, including one with a local police detective. ”

“The caller knows, the families said, what they’re wearing and what they’re doing. And after months of investigating, police seem powerless to stop them. ”

“It got worse. The Kuykendalls and two other Fircrest families told ABC News that they believe the callers are using their cell phones to spy on them. They say the hackers know their every move: where they are, what they’re doing and what they’re wearing. The callers have recorded private conversations, the families and police said, including a meeting with a local detective. ” 5[/quote]

Not all members of the Targeted Individual community have a cameraphone, but this example is just to show how one family could be terrorized by an encounter such as this. What we experience is ongoing, and often just as upsetting, but we often do not have the same proof that this family had, which enabled them to go to the police.

[quote]”Recently, the stalkers have begun to come to their home in the early hours of the morning, banging on their doors. The mother said that the first time they came, she immediately called 911, but as soon as the police arrived, the stalkers had fled. The police, unable to do anything, left, and the stalkers returned right away. She said every time this happens she contacts the police, but after about the third call and then the third return, she just stops trying.” 6[/quote]

Regulation of Investigatory Powers

Regulation of Investigatory Powers is a United Kingdom law, which enables public bodies to carry out investigations and surveillance on individuals. Authorities can use directed surveillance or intrusive surveillance for months or years. These types of operations often employ “covert human intelligence sources’. Recently these laws were abused by using them to spy on families for anti-social behaviours and noise complaints.

[quote]”Directed surveillance’ is covert surveillance of individuals during a specific but non-intrusive investigation’ (our emphasis). Surveillance is covert where it is carried out in such a way to ensure that those targeted are unaware that it is taking place (cl.25(8)). ‘Surveillance’ is defined as including any monitoring, observing and listening to persons, their movements, conversations or other activities or communications. It also includes any recording of such activity and surveillance by or with assistance of a device.”

” Intrusive surveillance’ is defined as covert surveillance in relation to anything taking place on residential premises or a private vehicle. It may be carried out either by a person or device inside residential premises or a private vehicle or by a device placed outside” 7[/quote]

Secret Databases

A new story also came out this year claiming that information is being kept on Canadians, in secret databases that they have no access to.

[quote]”Jennifer Stoddart, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, has released a 48-page report warning that the RCMP (Canada’s national police force) is keeping thousands of files on regular citizens in secret databases which cannot be seen by the accused.

One of the many disturbing facets of Stoddart’s report are the examples she cites of information for these secret files coming from citizen informants. In one case a man was put into the secret database because a resident of his daughter’s school neighborhood saw him entering a rooming house and—believing drugs were involved—called the police. The police investigation concluded that the man had only stepped out of his car to have a cigarette, but the file was still in the national security databank seven years later.

Another incident cited in the Stoddart report involved a neighbour who saw two men carrying “something that resembled a large drum, wrapped in canvas” into their house. Police were called to investigate but found nothing resembling the reported item, yet the data was still sitting in a top secret databank five years later. As Stoddart points out in the CBC story on the report, this is potentially disastrous for the individuals named in the files, because it “could potentially affect someone trying to obtain an employment security clearance, or impede an individual’s ability to cross the border.” 8[/quote]

Citizens on Phone Patrol

COPPThe Citizen On Phone Patrol. These programs have been in effect as far back as 1998 or even before in some communities. I fully approve of helping out ones community and keeping an eye on things. However this is not what gang stalking is about. Gang stalking is different in many regards. http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/08/14/news/korea.php

The problem is some elements of gang stalking are taking advantage of these programs and using or incorporating them to help harass innocent people.

Police, politicians, Companies, and many others in most communities are aware of these groups, many people are taking part in these groups, and these groups are fully supported by the above mentioned people.

Below is information about the (COPP) program in Longview Texas. These programs are however operational in many cities in America and Canada, and some are being abused to help target, watch and harass innocent people via gang stalking.

Citizens on Patrol (C.O.P.) acts as extra eyes and ears for the Longview Police Department in the cities neighborhoods. Private citizens volunteer their time and resources to actively patrol their neighborhoods to observe and report suspicious and/or criminal activities to the appropriate authorities.

C.O.P’s primary purpose is to help reduce crime and/or illegal drugs within the city through cooperation with the police department.

Within the C.O.P. program, citizens are needed to patrol their neighborhoods for 8 to 16 hours per month.

If you can spare at least 8 hours per month for the betterment of your community, C.O.P. needs you. None of our volunteers receive pay or reimbursements for any of our services.

Patrols are conducted in the Volunteer’s personal vehicles with the C.O.P. logo on magnetic signs for maximum visible identification. Also, shirts and jackets imprinted with the logo are supplied to each volunteer. Cell-Phones as well as Programed 800 mhz Two-way Radios are provided for patrollers ever constant contact with the Longview Police Dept. There must be two (2) or more patrollers in each patrol vehicle. Good friends, buddies or husbands and wives make an optimum patrol situation. COP is a non-profit organization incorporated by the state of Texas. We are 501 ( C ) (3) designated by the IRS to receive grants and donations.

VOLUNTEERS MUST BE AGE 21 OR OLDER.

C.O.P. VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT POLICE OFFICERS and ARE TRAINED TO

OBSERVE and REPORT ONLY.

 CITIZENS ON PATROL OBJECTIVES:

 1. To assist the Longview Police Department through observing and reporting

 2. To help reduce crime in neighborhoods

 3. To increase cooperation between citizens and police

 4. To educate citizens on crime prevention

 5. To increase police authorized presence in neighborhoods

 6. To unite residents for a dedicated reason

 7. To increase crime awareness among the citizens in our own neighborhoods

 8. To improve the quality of life in all areas of Longview

 9. To provide a safe, secure environment for all neighborhood residents

 10. To make a difference in our city

Increased citizen involvement can and will deter crime in your neighborhood. These patrols are a visible presence of police authority that helps to prohibit and deter criminal activities. C.O.P. also develops a closer relationship between the police and the community. This enhances and improves the overall quality of life within the city of Longview, Texas.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

C.O.P. participants will attend one eight-hour training session. During this time they will learn the observation techniques and police procedures necessary for safety and the smooth operation of patrolling. Each C.O.P. volunteer is required to participate in at least one ride-along with a uniformed patrol officer prior to starting patrols. This allows the citizens to experience the complexities of law enforcement, possibly from a different perspective.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

 reporting suspicious crime and/or illegal drug activity to the police.
The C.O.P. program increases the lines of communication between

Longview citizens and the Longview Police Officers by:

increasing direct interaction among citizens and officers;

informing and educating private citizens in the daily activities

of the police department; sharing with the concerned citizens of Longview

that they do have a voice and it’s time to be heard; empowering, uniting and

consolidating as many citizens as possible to support the police department.

What are Informants?

Informants

Many people in our society commit crimes or do something that gets them into trouble with the police. Instead of going to jail some are offered a way out. Some are offered the choice of becoming snitches or informants.

Many are offered these programs without the benefit of seeing a lawyer or they are told that if they see a lawyer the offer will be withdrawn. Many see this as a way out, a get out of jail free card, however this becomes a package that can have many draw backs, not just for the informants, but for the society at large, when they are left to roam free and continue some of the same activities that brought them to the attention of law enforcement in the first place.

The spy programs being used in many cities are similar to the Statsi system that was used in the former East Germany. Informants are asked to go back and spy on friends, family, neighbours. It’s not a good life style and many find that they are no better than indentured slaves trapped in a program that is nothing better than a life time jail without a cell.

Unlike a 20 year prison sentence that has a time frame, once they become parts of these programs, they are trapped and owned by the state for life and there is often no way out. Some who have tried to get out, have had unfortunate endings. However to many people who are offered these programs, they initially seem like life lines out of a life behind bars. For some it is, for others it’s something much worst.

The other aspect of these programs that many are just starting to look into is entrapment. Other snitches who go out of their way to get innocent people into situations where they can be forced to become parts of these programs. There are people who are parts of these programs that are specifically looking to go out and find others that they can entrap in these programs, sometimes if they can not get you into the program by legitimate means, they will get you in by other means.

The best thing you can do for yourself if you are caught in something that is illegal or embarassing is buy yourself enough time to think things through, see a lawyer if you can. Don’t let anyone force or pressure you into these programs, because once in, unlike jail, there does not seem to be a way out.

To find out more about some of these programs, you can read some of the following articles.

Some closing thoughts

Closing

Many people think that stopping Gang Stalking should be as simple as going to the police. However targets who have gone to the police have not received the expected support that we should be able to count on from law enforcement. Some targets have been disbelieved. Some who were believed were still told that there was nothing that could be done. Others have been falsely institutionalised, or asked to have mental health evaluations, because they sought help for one of the most frightening experiences of their lives.

These are some of the primary reasons that targets do not go to the police. They have seen what has happened to other targets who sought help.

Others think that the solution is for targets to simply move, that will fix this. The thing is targets do move, just like myself and it does not stop the harassment. They continually follow and stalk targets wherever they go in order to destroy their lives.

Just like McCarthyism and Cointelpro were destructive to the innocents of that time period that were caught up in it’s snear, Gang stalking is equally destructive to the innocent targets caught up in this time period. In some cases it’s happening in secrecy and this is why we seek to bring public awareness to the issue.

Gang Stalking like other forms of harassment can be stopped, but it takes work and a willingness to stand up to this and say no. People just like in every other time period need to come together and say no, this is not right. They need to oppose what’s happening to others.

What we are calling Gang Stalking might seem new in it’s present form, however it’s becoming increasingly clear that this is simply a modern day form of Cointelpro and McCarthyism, and the techniques used are historic. The method used to stop the above travesties were also historic. Just like the human nature that allows these things to happen, it was the human will that was finally able to conquer and stop these things from happening.

Gang Stalking just like all those other events in history can be changed, but it needs awareness and human opposition to make that a reality. Please do not stand idly by and let this happen once again.

Gang Stalking and history

Gang Stalking in History

The components that have gone into making up gang stalking have been around for many decades if not hundreds of years. You will find many aspects of this harassment have been used quite successfully in other time periods, and controlled states.

What Gang Stalking does is it takes the successful aspects of those programs and it uses them, plus a couple of new ones to harass and torture individuals to the point of a nervous breakdown, institutionalization, suicide, devastation and ruin. The following are just a few of the components of previous programs used by others that have helped to make up Gang Stalking.

Red Squads

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_squad

Red Squads are police intelligence units that specialize in infiltrating, harassing, and gathering intelligence on political and social groups. Dating as far back as the Haymarket Riot in 1886, Red Squads became common in larger cities such as Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles during the First Red Scare of the 1920s. They were set up as specialized units of city police departments, as a weapon against labor unions, communists, anarchists, and other dissidents. In New York, former City Police Commissioner Patrick Murphy traced their origin there to an “Italian Squad” formed in 1904 to monitor a group of Italian immigrants under suspicion[1]. However, it is their association with fighting communism which provides the basis for the name “Red Squad.” They became more commonplace in the 1930s, often conceived of as a countermeasure to Communist organizers who were charged with executing a policy of dual unionism – namely, building a revolutionary movement in parallel with membership in above-ground labor organizations. Similar units were established in Canada in this period, although only the Toronto police used the name.

Throughout the Cold War, these guardians of political compliance spied on and harassed law-abiding activists who veered too far left of the political center. Dedicated civil rights advocates and others fought back and won on local, state, and federal fronts. But their success was often short-lived. New technologies; new laws; and increased interaction among international, federal, military, state, and local law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and private corporations are threatening not only to put Red Squads back in business nationwide, but to increase the scope of their power to pry, to harm, and to imprison.

Although community policing has not been as successful in curbing street crime as its proponents might have hoped, it has been a public relations success and enjoys the support of many well- intentioned liberals. But heirs to the Red Squads have found it an excellent mechanism as well. Savvy law enforcement types realized that under the community policing rubric, cops, community groups, local companies, private foundations, citizen informants, and federal agencies could form alliances without causing public outcry. Riding on fears from the trumped-up missing children campaign of the 1980s to the anti-drug hysteria of the 1990s community policing has been the public face of under-the-radar efforts to create an impenetrable web of surveillance and enforcement.

Police departments recruited both professional and civilian informers. The numbers are unknown, but may well have reached five figures. By the late 1960s there were over two thousand professional and amateur spies in Chicago alone. For regular police officers, undercover work was a rapid route to advancement. Some civilians enlisted for patriotic reasons, others were police groupies who hoped that working with the red squad might get them a job with the force. In Philadelphia policemen’s wives became “pin money” spies. The activities of these informers varied. Some took on single assignments; others, like Chicago veteran Sheli Lulkin, who infiltrated eighty-eight separate organizations, made it a career.

All of these police activities–overt and concealed–were clearly designed to destroy the targeted organizations. In some cities, notably Philadelphia, which experienced a virtual reign of police terror under Frank Rizzo in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the harassment blossomed into a full-scale physical attack on all dissent. Elsewhere, the use of violence was a bit more discriminating: it targeted the Black Panthers. And it was successful. Though Donner does not try to assess the extent to which this repression contributed to the decline of the radical left in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the scope of red squad activism, as well as the self-defeating paranoia that it understandably encouraged within the left, could not but have made a massive contribution to the demise of the movement.

Gaslighting

The term Gaslighting refers to the subtle art of trying to drive your enemies crazy. It done through various subtle psychological attacks over time, that wear down the victim and destroy their perception of their environment and things around them.

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaslighting
It is based on a 1944 movie in which a man tries to use subtle methods to drive his wife crazy.
The term was again used to describe some tactics used by the Manson family. Sometimes when they would break into homes they would just move the furniture about and leave everything else undisturbed.
There is also a 1994 book called. Gaslighting how to drive your enemies crazy. It’s written by Victor Santoro.
In the book he gives various methods on how to drive your enemies crazy. Below are just a few of the suggestions that he makes.

Some of the tactics covered include:

Collecting information on your target
Preparing for a gaslighting attack
Creating tension, anxiety and sleeplessness
Messing with your target’s car, telephone and mail
Gaslighting at your target’s workplace and home
Turning neighbors and co-workers against the target
Covering your tracks
Stasi East German Police

This was an agency set up after the end of the second world war in East Germany. After WWII Germany was divided into the East and the West. The Western half being democratic and the Eastern half being a communist state. It was set up for many reasons, but the primary reason seems to have been for keeping an eye on dissidents, and citizens of the state. At it’s peek the Stasi East German secret police had 300,000 paid spies on it’s pay roll. This was about 1 for every 63 German citizens. This figure does not include occasional informants, when they are tallied into the figure the number per citizen increases significantly.

The Stasi were able to spy on a country of 16 million people by using just 300,000 spies and paid informants. The tactics the Stasi used involved.

Bugging and video taping citizens, dissidents and spies.
Following some 24/7.
Creating profiles on citizens.
They even used radio active chemicals and X-ray machines to make dissidents glow in the dark, so they could follow them better. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2001/01/04/wstas04.xml
Getting their friends, family, spouses and close acquaintances to spy on them. This included husbands on wives, mothers on sons, brothers on sisters, close friends spied and turned each other.
It created a constant environment of mistrust and anxiety, because people never knew who they could trust. They always knew that at any social gathering or event, there would be a Stasi spy.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2002/04/07/wmum07.xml&sSheet=/news/2002/04/07/ixworld.html

The Stasi even spied on the future catholic pope. Years before he ever became pope. Their profiling system was so accurate they were able to predict that he would be appointed to a future position two full years before it happened.

According to the report, Ratzinger was so closely followed that the Stasi was able to predict his being named prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith _ the post he held before being named pope _ two years before it happened in 1981.

http://newsfromrussia.com/world/2005/10/03/64339.html

After the fall of the Berlin Wall the American CIA agency were able to obtain the code names of many of the Stasi spies that worked for the former East German Government and recently they appointed the former head of the Stasi Secret police Marcus Wolf to help with homeland security, and they also hired a former head of the KGB, General Yevgeni Primakov as a consultant for homeland security. The United States wanted to have 1 million spies working for them to keep an eye on their citizens.

The lives of others

In this 2006 movie set in the former East Germany, an innocent playwrite is targeted by the Stasi because an official has an interest in his girlfriend. The Stasi are asked to spy on him and to try to find out any dirt that they can on him. At the start of the movie the playwrite is a supporter of the state, but throughout the movie and after the loss of one of his friends who has been blacklisted by the state, he turns against the state, and writes statistics on the states suicide rates.

The Stasi agent who is asked to spy on this couple grows increasingly more caught up in the lives of this innocent pair, and goes to lenghts to protect them, as he realises the truth behind this covert investigation, into the lives of others.

McCarthyism

Joe Mccarthy was a United States senator who decided in the 1950 to go on a campaign against communist forces and influences that might be penatrating the U.S.

In his hunt for communist he ruined several people with good character and implicated many others who had nothing to do with communism. During his time in office, many intellectuals and artist actually left the U.S. to go and live in Europe.

For his witch hunt for communist in the States he had full corporation of the media, churches, teachers, unions, etc. Many good democratic leaders lost their jobs and thousands of others during his campaign against communism. There were many wrong things happened during the years of the McCarthy era including:

Charlie Chaplin the famous comedian being deported from the United States.
Many artists were not given permission to travel. Similar to the no fly list of this time period.
Many people were blacklisted and unable to find jobs.
Trials were set up for those suspected and accused of being communists.
Lawyers, Judges, and Juries who sided with the defendants were threatened and harassed. If they refused to hand down guilty verdicts their jobs were threatened.
Communists were arrested, some charged with plotting to overthrow the government by force and violence, all charges were false, but the hysteria at the time kept the hunt in full gear.
The FBI used illegal practices in its pursuit of information on Communists, including burglaries, opening mail and illegal wiretaps. J. Edgar Hover lead the FBI during this time period.

During trials informants and false witness could always be produced against the defendants.

Cointelpro

The American program set up in the 50’s under J. Edgar Hover. This program was set after he could not go as far as he wanted with his witch hunt for communist. It was set up to investigate and disrupt dissident programs. It was also famous for targeting leaders of those programs. One famous leader this program targeted was Martin Luther King. The leader of the civil rights movement. Under the direction of J. Edgar Hover, they did everything in their power to bring him and his movement to the ground. http://www.icdc.com/~paulwolf/cointelpro/churchfinalreportIIIb.htm

Some of the methods that this program employed on activists and dissidents included:

Disruption of their movement via infiltration of snitches and informants.
Rumour and slander campaigns.
Planting of false media stories with collaborating media companies.
Portraying real dissidents as snitches or informants
False evidence and perjured statements by police to make dissidents look like criminals.
24/7 Surveillance and harassment campaigns.
Use of force against dissidents and their property including, but not limited to, break-ins, vandalism, assaults.
Official terrorism on dissidents, including assassinations.
Mail disruption and tampering.
Psychological Warfare on targets of this program.

Gang Stalking has many other similarities to how Blacks were treated by the KKK in the American South and how Jews were treated by Hitler’s Brown coats before and during WWII.

Gang Stalking is pretty new in it’s present form, but the methods and techniques used are historic, just like the human nature that allows these things to happen and the human will that is finally able to conquer and stop these things from happeing.

Gang Stalking just like all those other events in history can be changed, but it needs awareness and human opposition to make that a reality. Please do not stand idly by and let this happen once again.

Coping with Gang Stalking

Coping

Covert investigations are about power and control. It’s about suppression and censorship. Squashing dissidence. Overnight the target of these investigations will wake up and litterally find themselves enemies of the state, and the agents of the state. Their lives will be disrupted in unspeakable ways, and their livelyhoods. Many targets are broken to the point where they have very limited means of survival. This makes targets prime for suicide, false instituationalization, arrest, instigated car accidents, other accidents, or just assassination meant to look like an accident.

Being harassed in this way is a psychological battle that many targets are not ready for, and have to be ready for, if they are to survive. Survival also becomes more than just a psychological battle, because their lives are interfared with. These people will try to get them removed from their jobs, so they have no means of income or support. They will try to get them ostracisedin their communities, with former friends and family. It will psychologically, and emotionally feel like the world is against you, and because so many people are taking part in this activity, that assessment will not be too far from the truth.

Survival will become a game of skill, craft, and a lot of luck. Don’t discount prayers. Many of the targeted that I have encountered had a profound faith in God and many seem to be very intellegent people.

Live your life to the best of your ability.
Stay in control. It’s your life and not their life.
Try to meditate and pray as you start your day.
Continue with your normal activities as best as possible.
Try not to loose your temper in public. This is what they want. In public stay as calm and serene as possible.

They have observed you, now it’s your time to observe them. They have limited functions, once you tune into what they are doing, you can out smart them.
Do not interact with them to the best of your ability. They crave the attention and interaction with targets. Try not to give it to them.
If you start to fight back and they increase the attacks at first, that’s normal. Keep at it, be persistent. You will wear them down.
Do research on Gas-lighting, Cointelpro, Stasi secret police, psychopaths, cults, mobbing. Read books, watch movies, learn how they work.
Keep a journal of what’s happening.
Rebuild your social circle. The way this works is by putting you into exile. The thing that you want to do is rebuild a social circle. If you live in a small town, try to find maybe someone in another town, or someone who is not taking part in the gang stalking. This works by cutting of your network, the best defence is to try to build or rebuild a network.
Make people aware of what is happening. This works well in silence. However in small towns this works because too many people are taking part. Go online if you have to, start a blog, call people on the phone. Do an awareness campaign. Get the word out.
