The police routinely do surveillance on suspects. We all know
The DEA, FBI, CIA and a whole host of other agencies also do
surveillance on suspects. What we don’t know is how they pick their suspects,
how they do surveillance and how long do they do surveillance for. Without a
doubt, the number of suspects has increased since September 11th,
The New York Times featured an article on June 10th,
2016 titled “United States of Paranoia: They See Gangs of Stalkers”
which casts doubts on whether gangs could commit crimes like stalking,
harassing (and worse) against targeted individuals (TI’s) and repeatedly tries
to plant seeds of doubt that TI’s may be mentally ill, delusional or psychotic.
When we replace the phrase “gang stalking” with
“surveillance” and the term “targeted individuals” with
“suspects” does anyone then think that suspects are mentally ill,
delusional or psychotic for realizing that surveillance teams are doing
surveillance on them, when surveillance teams are indeed doing surveillance on
We don’t know how many people are suspects
because the police won’t comment on ongoing cases. Ditto for Federal law
enforcement and intelligence agencies. Dr. John Hall, a documentary film maker,
author and expert on gang stalking, estimates that hundreds of thousands of
Americans are currently being targeted, gang stalked and worse.
We don’t know how the police or Federal agencies do surveillance
on people because they won’t say how they do surveillance. On occasion, there
is news about people who were indicted that reveals surveillance went on for
years, that undercover officers masqueraded as underage girls online or as sexy
young adults preying on lonely (or excitable) young men. Undercover officers
pretending to be religious, frequenting Mosques, asking nosy questions,
offering freebies all around, free food, free drinks, free cash, free vans,
free weapons to religious people, who pray often, yet live in economically
cratering parts of the US.
There’s Congressional testimony from intelligence agency personnel
about “dark arts” and “honey traps.” The specifics on how
exactly they do surveillance (aka their “dark arts”) on suspects is
sketchy at best.
Not so from the suspects, the targeted individuals that is. Dozens
of books have been written, hundreds of gang stalking survivor groups have
formed, mainly online, and thousands of sites and blogs exist on the topic.
Just search terms like mind control, gang stalking and targeted individuals and
you will find.
TI’s describe being gang stalked, harassed, many times a day every
day, abused, terrorized, brutalized, tortured and many TI’s memorialize other
TI’s who were killed. Descriptions get graphic and detailed, some with a unique
vocabulary like “directed conversations,” “gas lighting,”
“mobbing,” “street theater,” “man in the middle
attacks,” “sleep deprivation torture” and so forth.
Directed conversations apparently are when police supervisors
write out scripts for undercover officers (or informants) to recite in front of
suspects. “Gas lighting” is when undercover officers (or informants)
break into a suspect’s home and move things around or do intentional damage to
utilities, appliances or clothes, for example.
“Mobbing” is often at work when several co-workers have
agreed to become police informants (snitches) and they mob, surround and
simultaneously bully a co-worker creating a hostile work environment. Some TI
websites and groups mention mobbing in other contexts like stores or in public,
suspects get enveloped by a swarm of irritating and menacing undercover
officers (or informants).
One suspect from New York reported being menaced by pit bulls.
When he left home in the morning, there would be 3 pit bull owners, chatting
with each other, with their pit bulls blocking the front door. Followed by the
subway entrance being blocked by 3 other pit bull owners with their pit bulls.
Followed by horribly disfigured people getting onto the same subway car at the
next stop, with handlers, then loudly describing the pit bull attacks that left
them so disfigured. Then, the subway exit being blocked by 3 pit bull owners
with pit bulls and so forth.
Street theater is when police bosses plan out skits for undercover
officers (or informants) to act out in front of suspects. One suspect reported
about several such skits. For example, a couple of undercover officers, one
with a camera, the other with chalk drawing outlines like of corpses on the
sidewalk while his partner snapped photos with flashes of the chalk outlines.
PsyOp is synonymous with street theater.
Man in the middle attacks are when someone texts a friend, but the
text goes to an undercover officer who reads and relays all or part of the
message to the friend. The friend responds, but that text also goes to the
undercover officer who reads it, then relays part or all of it to the suspect.
Such man in the middle attacks can also occur with online chats, emails and
some say calls with advanced computer programs that can mimic people’s voices
(two men in the middle attacks, one to listen to the suspect and a second in
the next room to relay the message (all or part) to the suspect’s friend). Any
unnatural seeming pauses with texts, chats or calls may indicate
Sleep deprivation torture is undercover officers (or informants)
making loud noises all night, so that suspects cannot sleep. Often the loud
noises come from a nearby home, rented by the police to do surveillance, like
loud music all night long. Other loud noises described by suspects include loud
TV’s, prolonged chain sawing, power drilling, jack hammering and the like.
Some suspects report intensive sexual harassment and assaults. One
suspect in New York reported years of more than 50 prostitutes a day stalking,
harassing, assaulting and at times, attempting to rape. None of the prostitutes
wanted money from their target. It’s widely known in Manhattan that certain
Federal agencies have stables of prostitutes on their payroll because of the
United Nations and Wall Street (and apparently for some suspects too).
For some, being harassed (assaulted, etc.) by so many prostitutes
every day might sound hot. Pick the ones you want, or pick all of them for sex,
But. If you’re a heterosexual man, they send frisky gay male
prostitutes. If you’re a heterosexual woman, they send lesbian prostitutes. If
you’re a gay man, they send heterosexual female prostitutes. If you’re a
lesbian, they send heterosexual male prostitutes to sexually harass you,
assault you, attempt to rape you, etc. Just say “surveillance” (wink
Suspects who know why they are being targeted and are being
targeted by local or state police, rarely report the swarms of prostitutes.
Prostitute swarms harassing (assaulting, etc.) are more commonly reported by
suspects who know why they are being targeted and are being targeted by the
(Many suspects do not know why they are suspects. Many suspects
don’t realize for years that they are suspects.)
How long? One “suspect” reported being under
“surveillance” for over 50 years. Long story short, his mother was
some sort of Fed tasked with seducing a foreign leader (known for promiscuity)
and getting pregnant. She succeeded and came back to Manhattan. 9 months later,
she delivered at New York Presbyterian Hospital. The agency arranged an
adoption and the natural mother got her $1 million in cash. (Moments later,
outside the hospital, she was robbed and murdered.)
Anyway, the child was adopted by undercover officers, raised in a
wealthy suburb on a block where many other undercover officers lived. He’s been
under 24/7 “surveillance” throughout his childhood, teens, young
adulthood and middle age years to present. Other targeted individuals
(suspects) routinely report having been under surveillance for decades.
People put on the no fly list never get off the no fly list just
as many suspects never get off the surveillance list. (Back in the day,
Americans used to be innocent until proven otherwise.)
Gloria Naylor, an award winning author, reports in her book
“1996” how a spat with a well connected neighbor led to her being
declared a “suspect” and being put under intensive
“surveillance” complete with harassment, stalking by surveillance
teams, psychological abuse and torture, sabotage to personal belongings, loud
noises, sleep deprivation torture, being threatened, menaced and terrorized
24/7/365 and worse.
The police and Feds refuse to state how long surveillance goes on
for. The police and Feds also refuse to provide metadata like statistics (e.g.
a range from shortest to longest surveillance times, average and median
surveillance time periods). There’s a tab to taxpayers too, but, the police and
Feds refuse to provide data on how much surveillance costs per day per suspect.
The police and Feds absolutely refuse to provide data on how many
suspects are guilty and how many are innocent.
Widely published data reported that over 90% of the suspects
incarcerated at Guantanamo were innocent of any crimes. They were imprisoned,
without trial, tortured for years, then released. Because they’re innocent.
The Feds still refuse to apologize to the innocent people they
falsely imprisoned and tortured for years at the Guantanamo torture camp as
surely as the Feds still continue their lingering military occupation of
Occupied Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
We don’t know how many suspects put under surveillance are
innocent, but we do know for sure from Guantanamo data that over 90% of the
suspects there turned out to be innocent. Over 90% of suspects put under
surveillance may also be innocent.
It was also widely reported that the Feds murdered some of the
innocent suspects at Guantanamo, then tried (unsuccessfully) to make their
murders look like suicides. It’s still unknown, however, how many innocent
suspects under surveillance the police and Feds have murdered. Some TI websites
report names and other facts about targets (suspects) who died under suspicious
The practice of placing suspects under surveillance has increased
throughout the history of the United States. The biggest increase has been 2001
There are too many unanswered questions about surveillance of
suspects. Inquiries can be done by County Legislatures, City Councils, State
Assemblies, Congress and investigative journalists to reveal how suspects are
picked, how long are suspects put under surveillance, how exactly is
surveillance done and how many suspects are found to be innocent (e.g. 90%,
Suspects (targeted individuals) have reported that surveillance
teams have broken laws, committed misdemeanors, felonies, civil rights
violations, human rights violations and crimes against humanity. Reports of
serious crimes should be investigated. The people who do surveillance should be
well policed. Anyone doing surveillance who has committed crimes needs to be
held accountable: investigated, arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned for
A step forward in fighting such abuses and crimes is increasing
accountability, oversight, audits and placing effective checks and balances on
police and the Feds. One small step forward would be hearings at local, state
and federal levels on the scope and extent of the problem.
How many suspects are put under surveillance for decades? Why?
Effective enforceable laws need to be passed and inaugurated to limit the
amount of time a suspect can be put under surveillance (e.g. 1 or 2
How many crimes have been committed by police and Feds doing
surveillance and what kinds of crimes have they been committing against
suspects? The police and Feds need to be policed more effectively. Beyond any
shadow of a doubt, there should be independent audits, strong oversight,
effective accountability and enforceable checks and balances on both police and
If more than 90% of suspects are innocent of any crimes and large
numbers of people have been labeled suspects and put under surveillance for
decades, then discussion in the press, County Legislatures, City Councils,
State Assemblies, Congress and the media-at-large needs to also turn to how
these “suspects” can be apologized to and how can they be compensated
for what was done to them.
Targeted individuals who are suspects under surveillance will gain
more credibility when they acknowledge the fact they are suspects under
surveillance and move forward to discussions and actions (e.g. lobbying for
reforms, lawsuits, etc.) to ameliorate the status quo of how suspects are
picked, how surveillance is done, and how long does surveillance linger on for.
There is another group of targeted individuals who report they have been
experimented on without their consent – this is a closely related topic for
It’s a truism that everyone is a potential criminal just as
everyone is a potential terrorist. Yourself included. You are no longer innocent
until proven guilty in the USA. You are guilty until proven innocent (and that
could take decades, or a lifetime, or longer). If you see nothing, hear
nothing, say nothing and do nothing while the number of “suspects”
rises from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands to millions, then who is
going to speak up or do anything for you when you become a “suspect”
and get put under 24/7 “surveillance” for years? Or decades. Or the
rest of your life.
