Gangstalking, Cause Stalking
police abuse , non-criminal, –Many people do not understand the connections between organized cause harassment, and organized harassment with police abuses. The truth is, these behaviors are not new, and have only been expanded to adopt new information sharing between government agencies and private community watch groups. Typically police blotters were a good tool to alert both local law enforcement and the community of the identity of suspects to be on the lookout for or BOLOs.
This old system worked most of the time; however, there were many abuses where BOLO’s were issued simply for police harassment purposes. To explain further, after 911 and the Patriot Act Enactment; a mandate was implemented to create better communication between all agencies of law enforcement and intelligence services; so the NSA, CIA, DHS at the time FBI and even local and state law enforcement could share and exchange information. This investigation and information sharing clearinghouse is today known as Fusion Centers.
One of the problems with fusion centers today is information exchange also allowed for agencies to hand over investigations from one agency to another without a paper trail or agency responsibility.
The model of the fusion center further expanded to also include private citizens groups, community watch groups, private security firms and alike. The structure of Fusion Centers and how and when private citizens working independent from police was to exchange information was liberally applied for a good cause, to identify suspects and get the community involved in helping law enforcement discover the whereabouts of persons of interest and inform police of suspicious activities.
That did not go so well, as it turned out the Fusion Centers have become a clearing house for wrongfully investigated and accused suspects; where police will spend years trying to incriminate a person of interest and then turn over libelous reports to community watch groups making the person of interest a target for focused harassment also known as gang stalking. Gangstalking has become forever linked with an insane crackpot that believes the government is somehow reading their thoughts, or shooting microwaves at them.
Many who have been targeted are actually driven crazy by simple constant misinformation campaigns and simple community harassment that they become extremely paranoid and start believing in these absurd explanations. Part of the natural of community harassment like in school bullying; it is the objective of the community members to commit minor harassments on an individual to the point where they freak out. So this system of informing the public about potentially dangerous person has obviously been misused.
I have to point out at this point, you cannot blame the members in the community, people like the guardian angels, or your neighborhood watch group for their seemly depraved and indifferent behavior towards some individuals; their intentions are basically good from the information they have been fed. By the time they FBI or local law enforcement is done with someone, they disseminate outrageous defaming information of their character which anyone would feel good about screwing with them.
This is what I intend to stop, you see, I suspect that 90% of the information being contrived is false and it is legal and standard practice for law enforcement to lie to suspect and anyone around them to try and discover a truth. It’s perfectly normal for an investigator to make outrageous claims to individuals around a suspect to see if they can trick them into revealing some incriminating information. This is taught to police because it has been proven an effective method in getting someone to correct the investigator while making a less incriminating admission. Such as if a person is suspected of using crack, the investigator will ask a suspect’s friend “Did you know the suspect was making crack in their basement?”
Welcome to Political Gadfly, my blog that reveals the man behind the curtain.
The Straight Dope
Many of you are familiar with the term Gangstalking; a term that engenders many fantastic claims of government spying, organized hate groups and list of electronic weapons used on victims to torture them.
I am not here to discuss any of that; I am here to talk about the layers of activities between law enforcement, community watch groups, misuse of channels of communication, misuse of investigatory tools, personality problems with law enforcement, errant persons of interest (also known by law enforcement as “gray targets”), Fusion Centers which have become a “clearinghouse” for botched and errant investigations and data collections,, etc.…
I just want to give you a frank and clear understanding of what goes wrong in this new world of counter terrorism, sexual predator hunts and criminal investigations. You see, the system is out of control and there are no brakes to stop it; fear and paranoia in communities and in law enforcement have corrupted an already corrupted system. We’re not going to focus on the good in the system, that is a given; many well intentioned people use the system every day effectively and responsibly. Our focus is what goes wrong, how it goes wrong, who goes wrong and why.
You are all familiar with the latest NSA whistleblower realization of government activities to gather intelligence by all means of electronic communication. Many people are outraged and many others don’t mind this at all; they have a reasonable belief that, “if I am not doing anything wrong, I have nothing to worry about” and those who believe that are basically correct.
Most people will not really be affected by government spying, having the government keep track of their whereabouts, or the government creating a picture of whom you are communicating with; so why worry at all? After all, the government is here to protect us, it’s here to catch the bad guy and their intentions are basically good. So far, a fair assessment of the situation; they are just the good guys looking for the bad guys, and you have no need to worry.
I’m here to be honest with you; I’m here to tell you only the areas of how this seemly great system of law enforcement and public safety goes wrong; how it can affect you, your loved ones, your friends or coworkers. I’m not going to ask you to tear down the whole system, I am not going to talk about police states, or the government is spying on everyone like a 1984 and big brother is watchingyou.
NOW, let’s get to it:
First, the only time our great system wrongfully hurts someone, is not from a great collective government conspiracy; people get hurt when the system is used by well-intentioned people who misuse the tools given to them. It’s basically natural and I will explain more in-depth later.
Mike German is a retired FBI agent who has been involved in many counter terrorism investigations whose career involved him successfully infiltrating terrorist organizations for purpose of protecting all of us; but when mike was asked to misuse intelligence gathered by the FBI he refused and was put on ice for 2 years till his retirement. Since then, mike has been vindicated and the information was exposed to be misuse of FBI asset.
Mike now works for the ACLU, and he has been instrumental in weeding out misuse in the system and with him working within the law, he and the ACLU has been helping restore law in government. He has exposed the misuse of NSL (or National Security Letters), the misuse of BOLO’s (Be on the Lookout) blotters, the misuse of the FBI maintaining information on people who errantly got in the system and then never were purged and are still part of a chain of watch lists.
I tell you about Mike German, because he is credible, he has worked on both sides of the fence, a veteran FBI agent, a Lawyer and now Civil Rights advocate; in no way is Mike some bleeding heart liberal nor is he a crackpot libertarian looking to completely tear down our justice system. So when I mention in this blog areas of abuses, you can always check with mike to confirm whether I am blowing things out of proportion or being completely honest with you.
Human error or human assessment error has always been a profound problem in the Law Enforcement agencies. Human assessment error has been the primary reason we as a nation have put certain restrictions on Law Enforcement to not allow them to over reach their authorities and contrive reasons to open investigations while putting their nose in innocent citizens business.
Currently, we now have a serious problem since the Justices Department has basically waved most, if not all of these restrictions which kept the individual investigator from over reaching their authorities; now the Justice Department has created an environment of human assessment error to flourish. Basically, an investigator going on “their” gut feeling, without any fact based predicates, operating with no reasonable cause that a reasonably minded person would agree as sensible. A law enforcement agent can open an investigation on someone with the full force and powers of the government behind them on their personal and sometimes irrational beliefs.
You can see now how this would be a recipe for mishap; understand the very idea that these presumably well trained individuals have their own foibles, prejudices, and egos to maintain in a very serious job. This new attitude of “boots on the ground” (trusting the subjective rather than the objective), could either destroy a person’s life with systematic precision; or ignore a person of interest because they seemly have a lifestyle or personality the agent can relate too.
To compound the problem, the mishap of wrongful investigation can escalate easily when an agent misuses the pipeline of communication from agency to agency and from agency to the public at large. This is where the story of the myth of gang stalking begins; where a mistargeted individual of investigation with the use of surveillance, infiltration, personal sabotage and all other police tactics fail. After a person of interest is wrongfully targeted, an agent or agencies sends a package of information on the individual; filled with concocted theories, speculations, defamation, outright lies, lacking absolutely any information previously collected known by the agent which would show the person is of no interest at all.
To give you an example: The failure can be directly connected to the activity of derivatives or mortgage securities; sold as AAA paper, rated by disreputable firms with nothing but junk mortgages in it.
Imagine every stupid thing you have ever done in your life, or anything you are somehow embarrassed about, being packaged up by someone who will spin those actions to make them sound 10 times worse than they actually were; while not bothering to mention anything good about you? So, you bumped a car in a parking lot and left a note on the window with your information on it; becomes in this package, a high speed hit and run.
Now you might be wondering why our heroes, our protectors, the trusted people we gives these responsibilities too would do things like this? That is a very good question and that is the question that boggles the minds of everyone when this behavior is exposed. Why would the “good guys” lie?
The answer is very simple; it’s not difficult to understand; in fact, you might have been in situations like this already; or know someone who has done something similar. To understand the person or persons who started the assessment error in the first place; you have to simply understand how they become more and more frustrated with their investigation getting nothing for their troubles; the hours spent, the informants they have tasked. The shear weight of their egos cannot let it go.
In the psychology of law enforcement, anytime the bell of suspicion is rung, it is NOT their job to say, “oh it’s nothing” or “this person is fine” the psychology of law enforcement is to find trouble, is to get the bad guy at any opportunity. This psychology is directly proportional to the level of authority one is given; so a regular police officer will likely dismiss many complaints out of hand, because they aren’t given the power and investigated tools which would allow them to make something out of nothing.
As we raise authority and tools given to law enforcement such as detective or agents, what reaches their desks get taken more and more seriously. As the escalation of authority increases, the level of error increases proportionally. Pride or egos of people in these positions are driven to produce; the very concept that they wasted months or even years of their time on a dead issue is by nature their greatest fear. Can you imagine telling your boss you just spent 6 years on a worthless project which has to be thrown in the trash? 6 years of paying you for nothing, 0 productivity?
I hope now everyone, from someone who feels they have been somehow harassed to a skeptic who doesn’t believe these things are happening understands where our problems arise.
My efforts are not to indict the entire system, like many I only wish to point out the hotspots of severe problems that can potentially cause the greatest harm and injury to individuals which are left with no path to filing a grievance or process of law. These natural problems that occur in the system that would be easily dealt with if caused by a private or public figures; become impossible to correct, prevent or reconcile harm or injury caused to them. (Imagine a builder building you a house which looks fantastic on the outside and falls down the next day; and they demand you pay for the house anyway?)
In other words, if a private citizen makes slanderous, inflammatory, defaming, or libelous accusations; a person has legal recourse to take action against the offender. Currently it is a matter of policy for Law enforcement and governmental appointed panels to commit the same abuses of character assignation with complete impunity. People like myself and people like you have to petition and use all legal means available to expose these mishaps and hold some accountable when they take this route.
Identifying and preventing the misuse of law enforcement tools and channels of communication from happening in the first place we must start. The simple fact is that most people aren’t even aware there is a problem, because these mishaps usually only effect individuals, and even tho the problem is greater than you would believe, it’s a problem most individuals simply do not have the resources to challenge.
Here is a Video everyone should watch to gain a better perspective of how misuse and over zealousness persist.
