yes, it happened today again, July, Monday 21, 2008 at around 12.30 pm while walking guidedog - I was sprayed, target with some electgronic waeppon - I don'tknow, my face hurt and I was in pain on all body parts which were not covered - please, we need help, do not ignore this problem, it's diabolic, a crime against human rights - if it needs to stop - life's are being destroyed - human life is too precious to be subjected to this kind of torment Do not ignore this social problem. OVERVIEW
Gang stalking involves the use of multiple individuals to stalk, harass and taunt a victim, as well as to vandalize personal property. This can take place for many years, particularly since law enforcement and legislation have yet to catch up with the reality of organized stalking by groups.
Techniques of psychological warfare are used against the target in a methodical and well orchestrated attack that often leaves the target a victim of ridicule among his friends and family because this occurrence is so hard to believe. However, the number of targets are increasing to the point that they can network with one another and find out that the same tactics are used everywhere. These tactics are intended to weaken the target to the point of physical and psychological collapse.
The reasons why a person is initially targeted can vary. Sometimes the person may be a political activist. Others may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Corporations apparently have even been known to hire these stalking groups to silence people who were once in their employ. These stalking gangs may be lied to about the target, thinking that perhaps the person is a deviant who needs to be driven out of town. The reasons are only limited to the imagination. In some cases, according to David Lawson, author of Terrorist Stalking in America, the person has done nothing wrong but is simply used as a practice target or as an example to others in the group to show what can happen to them if they anger the group in some way. This serves to keep the members of these stalking groups tied to the group through intense fear of becoming a target. It is such a terrifying prospect because the gang members are intimately aware that the lives of the targets are utterly destroyed. (See FAQ for more information).
Many people ask, "Why would anyone engage in this kind of activity?". In order to answer that question, it's important to realize that the person who has decided to target an individual is not the person (or persons in this case) doing the stalking. This is known as "stalking by proxy". Those who have called "the hit" (so-to-speak) may be doing it for any number of reasons, including revenge, jealousy, or a desire to keep someone silent. It may be that physically harming a person is considered too extreme or too risky by the perpetrators. In fact, this kind of psychological attack can be a far more effective way to harm someone. It can completely destroy a person's life while leaving little or no evidence to incriminate the perpetrators.
Additionally, there are the reasons that the stalkers themselves engage in the activity, which have little or nothing to do with why the person may have been targeted in the first place. It is conceivable that the participants in the harassment don't even know why the person has been targeted, nor would most of these individuals have any personal stake in harassing the victim. But certain things are clear - this is an both an addictive behavior as well as a form of entertainment for the stalkers. From the expressions on the faces of some of the perpetrators who come face-to-face with their targets, there is a vicious kind of pleasure that they derive from bullying their victim. Clearly they like the feeling of being "in control".
Like our society's current obsession with "reality TV", this activity must inevitably gain popularity as the ultimate experience of "reality" entertainment. Such is the nature of the bottomless pit within the stalkers that thirsts, evermore, for greater and greater thrills. To the perpetrators, their targets are merely their prey, in a game that never ends. But make no mistake, whatever the reasoning behind it, this is a vicious and calculated hate crime.DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITIES
The types of activities which take place are often subtle, and sometimes cannot be distinguished from normal everyday things that go wrong, but they typically occur much more frequently than they would normally. David Lawson points out in his book, Terrorist Stalking in America, that the victim is intentionally "sensitized" to the presence of the stalkers, so he or she will know that the occurences are orchestrated. This causes intense psychological strain due to the isolation and ridicule that results when the target tries to share these experiences with others. It is a psychological reign of terror intended to make a victim look crazy and intended to keep him or her in a constant state of anxiety and stress as to "what will happen next" (also known as "hyper-vigilance").
There was a 1944 movie called "Gaslight" about a husband trying to drive his wife crazy, from which the term "gaslighting" was derived. According to Slang City, "to gaslight someone is to drive them crazy by intentionally confusing them. It comes from the 1944 movie Gaslight, in which sweet heiress Ingrid Bergman marries creepy Charles Boyer, who hopes to get her inheritance by driving her insane. He convinces her she's seeing and hearing things that don't exist, including the gaslights (what they had before light bulbs) going on and off when he isn't home." The subtle techniques used to make the wife doubt her own sanity are similar to the techniques used by gang stalkers to unnerve a target. To see a summary by Eleanor White on the topic, click here.
For example, the perpetrators (who appear to frequently have access to their targets' homes) may sometimes come into the house while the target is out and move things around a little bit, or spread some dirt on the floor or on furniture, or move an item from the house to the car. But usually they won't cause enough damage to involve the Police. This shows that this activity is a psychological game of cat and mouse, and has little to do with any overt kind of damage that may be caused, such as burning someone's house down or stealing valuables.
In some cases, the target doesn't know s/he is being targeted. It just looks as though the world is full of very rude people, and everything s/he owns breaks constantly ("bad luck"). According to Lawson, the perpetrators don't need the target to know s/he is targeted in order to fill the need within themselves that they are in control.

the emotional and psychological suffering in response to group stalking

After the ongoing and prolonged experience of being stalked, harassed and having your home invaded, an intense feeling of being violated to the core of my being began to emerge with all its suffering, pain and psychological consequences. Having to live in fear on a daily basis slowly deteriorates a sense of self. Symptoms akin to PTSD are perhaps a common response to being violated over and over again. It was difficult to fall asleep or to concentrate on the most basic tasks of daily life. Physical symptoms such as rapid heart beat and sky high blood pressure likewise attested to the enormous psychological stressors I was experiencing as a result of these human violations.
It became increasingly more difficult to leave my home – encountering street theater became commonplace while outside. It was difficult for me to comprehend what was happening here and how people would be so cruel as to enjoy hurting a vulnerable person who already struggles daily to live as a sight impaired person in a world created by and for sighted people.
“Why won’t they just talk to me instead?” was a question I asked frequently – why would anyone deliberately choose to hurt another human being like this…. I had no answers, of course.
The psychological and emotional wounding of prolonged and repeated violations occurring from harassment and stalking run deep – complete recovery and healing may not be possible. To restore a secure sense of self and move through the world without anxiety and fear may never be possible again.
Because of the covert nature inherent to acts performed by group stalkers and because most people have a difficult time to comprehend that any person would elect to hurt others in such covert ways, it is extremely difficult for the victim to convince others to believe them and to help. Feelings of powerlessness and helplessness are a result of failed attempts to get help from friends and family members. Life itself becomes almost unreal because the victim is also unable to understand how anyone would intentionally harm others in such ways and unbearable.

How the stalking began - Part One

Hello and welcome to this blog. My name is Rena, and I have been a victim of multistaling, aka causestalking or organized stalking, since October 2007. The nightmare without waking began in Minneapolis, Minnesota. During this time period, my otherwise quiet and civilized life as a visually impaired student at the University of Minnesota was traumatically altered. Perhaps I was too outspoken about the rights and challenges regarding the disability community. When speaking up in my social work classes about such issues so dear to my heart, I noticed several students becoming annoyed with the topic. At first, a group of students targeted disrespectul comments during class participation. Soon after this period, I noticed changes within my apartment. Several alterations took place within my living space close to campus soon after the master key to the apartments had vanished from the owner's possession. I also noticed the same group of people lingering in front of my apartment on a daily basis. The same people watched me taking out my guide dog in the morning. In the evening, the same group of people gathered in the back of the building right beneath my apartment windows. I had the eary feeling of being watched all of the time.

By mid October 2007, each time my guide dog and I left and returned a strong smell of perfume was very noticeable in front of my door. Several of my friends complained about this constant odor. Additionally, I noticed strange changes in my apartment. For example, pictures would be taken off the wall, male underwear was mixed in with my underwear, a brand new bed sheet was stuffed into my storage closet, empty bottles of shampoo had been filled up with water and stuffed into drawers, my cat was locked up into a closet. After returning home, I found him there all scared, etc. There were so many events I can hardly account for all of them here.

As the reader may imagine, I became extremely scared to leave my home - even after putting in another lock and some security measures. As a result, I canceled some classes and began to isolate myself - especially since it was very difficult to explain these events to friends.
