So, what is "gang stalking" or "organized stalking"?

According to the most credible, single source of information on "gang stalking" online,

"Gang Stalking" is, very likely, a disinformation term created by U.S. intelligence agencies. It refers to the intense, long-term, unconstitutional surveillance and harassment of a person who has been designated as a target by someone associated with America's security industry.

Such operations have nothing to do with criminal gangs. Official domestic counterintelligence operations of this type are -- apparently -- perpetrated by federal agents and intelligence/security contractors, sometimes with the support of state and local law enforcement personnel...

The goal of such operations -- in the parlance of counterintelligence agents -- is "disruption" of the life of an individual deemed to be an enemy (or potential enemy) of clients or members of the security state. Arguably, the most accurate term for this form of harassment would be "counterintelligence stalking." Agents of communist East Germany's Stasi (state police) referred to the process as Zersetzung (German for "decomposition" or "corrosion" -- a reference to the severe psychological, social, and financial effects upon the victim). American and British victims have described the process as "no-touch torture" -- a phrase which also captures the nature of the crime: cowardly, unethical (and often illegal), but difficult to prove legally, because it generates minimal forensic evidence.

Tactics include -- but are not limited to -- slander, blacklisting, "mobbing" (intense, organized harassment in the workplace), "black bag jobs" (residential break-ins), abusive phone calls, computer hacking, framing, threats, blackmail, vandalism, "street theater" (staged physical and verbal interactions with minions of the people who orchestrate the stalking), harassment by noises, and other forms of bullying.

Both the facts and the geographical distribution of relevant published news reports -- as well as other evidence cited on this website -- suggest that such stalking is sanctioned (and in some cases, orchestrated) by federal agencies; however, news reports, credible anecdotal information, and my own experiences, indicate that such stalking is also sometimes used unofficially for personal and corporate vendettas by current and former corrupt employees of law enforcement and intelligence agencies, private investigators, and their clients.

Since counterintelligence stalking goes far beyond surveillance -- into the realm of psychological terrorism, it is essentially a form of extrajudicial punishment. As such, the harassment is illegal -- even when done by the government. It clearly violates, for example, the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unwarranted searches, and the Sixth Amendment--which guarantees the right to a trial. Such operations also violate similar fundamental rights defined by state constitutions. Stalking is also specifically prohibited by the criminal codes of every state in America.

Although the term "gang stalking" is intentionally misleading, it does have one merit: it is accurate in the sense that the perpetrators -- law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, and private security thugs -- do often function in the manner of criminal gangs. Although they sometimes conduct their operations under the color of law, many of their activities have neither constitutional nor moral legitimacy. That is true of all of the likely major perpetrators of organized stalking in the U.S.: the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. military counterintelligence agencies, state and local Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs), and security contractors. All of those groups -- and other federal intelligence agencies, such as the CIA and NSA -- have well-documented histories of abusing their powers."

Edward Snowden's revelations clearly established our government is collecting and storing not only our meta-data but the content of ALL our electronic communications. A few whistle-blowers had warned this dragnet surveillance was occurring prior to Snowden, but Snowden produced "the goods" (DOCUMENTS!!). Unfortunately, however, Snowden's documents did not expose the next level of surveillance: the intense physical surveillance and harassment of unfortunate individuals who find themselves in the cross-hairs of rogue elements of our national security apparatus ("The American Stasi") and their, often unwitting, minions.

Much of the street-level surveillance and harassment, including "black bag jobs" (break-ins to residences), are done by felons or criminals who are either paid or are getting out of trouble, like having their record expunged or staying out of jail or prison, for their participation in this program. With approximately 4.7 million Americans under "correctional control" outside of prisons and jails -- meaning parole and probation -- there are far too many leveraged Americans looking for a way out (D.O.J. figures)

Additionally, state and local law enforcement may not realize the "intelligence" or "data" they are getting from state data fusion centers or from federal agencies about a particular individual may be erroneous. But this information then "trickles down" to local neighborhood watches through community and neighborhood oriented policing initiatives.

So, please check-out The American Stasi are here.

Please help to ensure your local neighborhood watch is helping to make the neighborhood safe, not harassing innocent Americans, under the guise of "neighborhood oriented policing."
