Reasons may include revenge by people who feel slighted but prefer to remain anonymous. Revenge is more common than you may think, especially with the advent of the internet which allows “revengists” or “avengers” to share their ideas. See http://www.ekran.no/html/revenge/ or do a search on the word “revenge” to see for yourself.
It is also possible that such harassment has developed into a form of “sport” for the individuals who participate, not unlike a schoolyard bullying situation, which tends to center somewhat obsessively and irrationally around one individual who is perceived to be weak.
It is important to realize that our society’s understanding of human psychology has grown exponentially over the last 50 years, allowing any hate or vigilante group to take full advantage of such knowledge. “Psychological warfare” is the perfect crime, because it causes the maximum damage to the victim, with the least chance of exposure of the perpetrator(s). Victims can very well be driven to suicide, while the explanation appears to be mental illness, so their claims are never investigated.
Other very similar phenomena include:
(1) Workplace harassment (or “mobbing”)
(2) Vigilante style harassment of individuals such as abortion clinic workers, whistle-blowers and activists. Vigilante groups take the law into their own hands. Click here for two articles on vigilante groups.
Bullying of adults by other adults is a phenomenon which is sharply on the rise, as described by the Toronto Star Article entitled “Raging parents: The new schoolyard bullies”. The article states that “compared to a few years ago [this phenomenon] is everywhere”. Parents “can’t control their rage” and “there is mounting concern about parents behaving badly”. The bullying doesn’t take place just one-on-one, but groups of parents gang up on individual teachers in internet chat-rooms by holding “daily instant message bashing sessions about teachers they dislike”. Essentially, the bullying is organized, and the internet is a key tool in facilitating that organization.
“Cause stalking [gang stalking] has been used by extremist groups since the early 1990s. The basic system is alleged to have been developed by the Ku Klux Klan and refined through years of use. The primary characteristic of cause stalking is that it is done by large groups of people. A target will always be followed, but he is unlikely to see the same stalkers very often. Many of these groups include hundreds of people.”
– David Lawson,
Terrorist Stalking in America
What is Technological Harassment? Technological harassment refers to the use of technology to view, track, monitor and/or harass a person from a distance. The technology may include audio and/or video surveillance, GPS trackers on vehicles, and “non-lethal weapons” (NLWs).
“Non-lethal” weapons are available on the internet and through books. See: High-Tech Harassment: How to Get Even with Anybody Anytime for an example of a simple weapon.
What do victims experience?
Not all victims experience both gang stalking and technological harassment, but many do.
Community-based harassment includes some of the following:
* Break-ins and small scale vandalism or sabotage
* Daily,repetitive, antagonistic activities involving multiple stalkers and/or vehicles
* Multiple daily phone calls with no one on the other end of the phone
* Noise harassment from neighbors
Technological harassment can include:
* Sabotage/hacking of computer equipment and phones
* Use of audio and/or video surveillance to keep track of the target’s whereabouts
* Banging and tapping of walls, windows and objects inside the house
* Vibrating objects, such as bed, chair or body parts
* Inexplicable behavior of anything electronic including TV, computer, car, and appliances (for example, TV turning on or off by itself)
Targets may experience the following physical symptoms:
* Dizziness, weakness
* Frequent headaches
* Extreme fatigue
* Intense, disruptive ear ringing
* Buzzing or clicking in the head, ears or sinuses
* Jolts and jerks to muscles
* Abdominal pain/nausea
* Mental confusion/inability to concentrate
Myths and Facts
Non-lethal weapons don’t exist in the public domain.
See the following for examples of “low-tech” non-lethal weapons:

You have to be important to be a target of such intense and persistent stalking.
This is primarily a hate crime, whose targets tend to be neither wealthy nor public figures. Because the target is often no longer able to hold a job, s/he usually lacks the funds to fight back. What makes this different from other hate crimes is that the target is often not made aware if the reason behind it.
If you think you are targeted, you must be mentally ill.
While delusional thinking does exist, these situations have an identifiable pattern to them. This type of harassment has been modelled on past hate crimes and refined through years of use. It is intended to make the target look crazy. In addition, the activity is so traumatizing that many otherwise “mentally healthy” individuals might easily develop mental health issues as a result of the stalking. Hence, mental illness is not an indicator of whether or not the activity is actually taking place.
If you don’t make them angry, they will stop.
Like bullies in the school playground, they do not go away if you ignore them. Victims have found, to their dismay, that the targeting can go on for years. Exposure is the way to stop them.
A Word About Mental Illness
This situation is often perceived to be mental illness. Differentiating between mental illness and a true multiple stalking and technological harassment situation takes time. Victims may also have developed mental illness as a result of the trauma. As mentioned on various mobbing websites, this activity is so traumatic that it can cause mental illness in an otherwise healthy individual. Therefore, mental illness is not necessarily an indicator or proof that the situation is not happening.
For these reasons, it is important to give a person the benefit of the doubt and to remain open-minded and receptive to the idea that something is happening that is not merely attributable to a delusion. It took many years for mobbing to become publicly acknowledged, and victims of this crime face the same uphill battle.
The Martha Mitchell Effect
When seeing a helping professional, many victims often experience what is known as the “Martha Mitchell Effect”:
“Sometimes improbable reports are erroneously assumed to be symptoms of mental illness (Maher, 1988). The ‘Martha Mitchell effect’ referred to the tendency of mental health practitioners to not believe the experience of the wife of the American attorney general, whose persistent reports of corruption in the Nixon White House were initially dismissed as evidence of delusional thinking, until later proved correct by the Watergate investigation.
Such examples demonstrate that delusional pathology can often lie in the failure or inability to verify whether the events have actually taken place, no matter how improbable intuitively they might appear to the busy clinician. Clearly there are instances ‘where people are pursued by the Mafia’ or are ‘kept under surveillance by the police’, and where they rightly suspect ‘that their spouse is unfaithful’ (Sedler, 1995). As Joseph H. Berke (1998) wrote, even paranoids have enemies! For understandable and obvious reasons, however, little effort is invested by the clinicians into checking the validity of claims of persecution or harassment, and without such evidence the patient could be labeled delusional.”
Who We Are We are a group of targeted individuals living in Ontario, Canada who have made the decision to help ourselves as well as others by working together on activism projects to expose this crime.

This is “Sean” or shall we say, the person who you refer to as “Sean.”
You do not act alone. You even say this in your posts. You are “paid” by a group/gang of men to stalk, scare, and threaten me and to vandalize my possessions and intrude on my life because I talked about my ex-boyfriend. My slowly emerging awareness of my situation came August 31, 2007 when I went for a walk on the beach and saw the word “RAT” written on a large rock . When I got back to my car, my wetsuit, surfboards and clothes had been sliced and vandalized. And that was only the beginning. Hence your reference to rats, and the “TIC TALK”.
After many more unfavorable experiences at that beach down south, I was “persuaded” to leave the surf that I loved and not come back. And although I left to placate them, they continued to harass me in MY town. That is where “THE TIME KEEPER” enters the picture. Do you live on Topaz by any chance?
My new apartment, new furniture, and EVERY THING inside of it has been vandalized for over a year. This is where I will make a special mention of all of my clothes, belts, shoes, linens, beds, etc…you get the picture. You go through my paperwork and rearrange things so that I know that they have been here. You steal very little and the damage that you do is not obvious at first. HENCE, this is why the TIME KEEPER says he knows everything about me. Although not everything, they know most because they are in here every week. Recently, they have come in when I’ve gone running; I know this because that is the only time that I am ever away from my new purse and phone. I always erase certain numbers just in case and I’m glad. If you had seen my phone without my calls erased, you would never say that ‘”THE TIME KEEPER HOLDS ALL OF THE CARDS.”
You (and others) “watch” me at the beach. And, just like down south, there is always a “lookout” while the crimes are being committed around the corner, whether my car or apartment. And yes, I know that you have been within 6 feet of me. For some reason that was supposed to be a newsflash this weekend. A year ago, I was that naive. But this HAS been going on for over a year. Yes, I see you watching me and your “bro’s” watching me. Actually, the second time that I saw you (at the top of the 1st flight of stairs), I came within 3 feet of you as I walked by. That time I was just suspicious. But, the next time that I saw you, I knew what you were there for–and again I walked by you at the top of the first flight of stairs within 3 feet. Then there was Memorial Day. When you saw me coming from the beach, you went up the stairs and crossed the street like one of the parade watchers. That was the day that I saw you not wearing your sunglasses.
But the vandalism, stalking, indirect threats via CL have escalated in frequency and severity. And even your average CL dimwit has probably become aware that THE TIME KEEPER has nothing to do with some poor Jewish guy’s emails to others. The cause is in no way proportional to the effect. There is absolutely NO connection whatsoever. Bad news for me, but good news for Sean Cohen.
And how do I know that the TIME KEEPER (and others) have communicated with me through CL? Let’s just say that a little birdie told me to look. And that very day (September 19), there was a posting in the R & R’s that read: “WHAT HAPPENS AT HOME SAYS AT HOME. ( _ _ _ N)”. Insert my name in the parentheses. When I clicked on the posting there was nothing inside. Within 10 minutes it was deleted, but I am CERTAIN that if one could go back and look at deleted posts that say about the same thing, they too would have my uncommon name in them. My oppressors assumed that I was a CL officianado because I had obtained an apartment and looked for a job on here. Since then, I check out the R & R section and am no longer a naive idealist.
I’ve changed the lock on my apartment 4 times since then and taken inumerable steps to deflect and deter you, and nothing’s changed. You expect me to move again. That is not an option for me. You know that I take care of old, sick people and am in no position to move. Besides that, I am sick of moving and running. I am sick of your bullshit, double-standard bullying. How is it that grown men with wives and daughters around the corner, spend their time and energies bullying a woman that always stayed to herself and never hurt anyone. Even now, I am incapable (as you well know) of retaliating in any way. Not out of fear, but out of principle. Others have gone out of their way to hurt me and I do not choose to be vindictive. My ex-husband is the ultimate test on this one–if he couldn’t crack my character, then I KNOW that you won’t. And that is what this is really about–picking on someone who takes the high road. That, and I don’t act fearful enough–until lately. When you jammed me and drove me away from what I love most, I reinvented myself as a runner. That just gave you a new avenue by which to stalk me and new sporting goods to vandalize. I know, “terrorist don’t like people to get better, stronger, bigger.” Or “those who help others get better, stronger, bigger.”
Well, what else do I have to lose? That’s right, my children. You have made indirect threats at me via your CL BS and you choose to escalate them. When you came into my apartment when I took my aunt to dinner on the night of May 29th, you made my kitten bleed. You terrorized my beloved animal, pushed out the screens and did various other vandalism. That night, I discovered my personal possessions rearranged and vandalized and a gauge out of my kittens ear. The next morning and for 4 more days, there was fresh blood all over my kittens stools every time he moved his bowels.
Since then, things have changed. I have already sacrificed years for the 2 children that I raised, and I would sacrifice more to protect my kitten. I was scared going up against a gang of bullies and hoodlums. Who wouldn’t be? But you came after my own flesh and blood and drove it home that week with all of your sick dead cat pictures. I am not about to go about my business as usual knowing what you intend.
As you mentioned after stalking me this weekend, I now run and hide out. Ever since the kitten incident, I refuse to do my obligations outside of my apartment unless I have someone physically here to watch over him. I no longer go out to dinner Wednesday and Thursdays, or to lunch on Saturday. You have escalated your posts and identified yourself even further when you did your “Pied piper of Hamlin” post last Thursday. You see that morning, instead of my business as usual, I had a security guy come over–a camera guy. Hence, the “camera in the bag” and “man on your porch” comments. You did a real topper when you ended it with “the fate of a rat” being “the worst of them all”. Don’t bother to look it up good people, the author deleted that post-a little too obvious and conspicuous?
Since nobody lives in a vacuum or bubble, there has been a ripple effect. Hence, your comment on CL regarding me being “late, late, late for a very important date” within 10 minutes of my aunt getting home last night. After being shut in for over a week and all weekend, you would think that I would go running out. But, the ripple effect has affected my nervous systm. But the ripple effect extends in your direction, too. Topaz Street keeps coming to mind.
I’ve seen you and know that you do not act alone. I mind my own business and ALWAYS have. I never ask questions and claim to know NO THING. These absolute facts have never changed my situation. Staying to myself, not TALKING, moving away and staying away–you say, not good enough. You pressure “sean” to GO AWAY OR?” What?
So, this weekend its about “TICK TOCK”, “CLOCK TALK”, “NUMBER”, “CALLED”, “BONEYARD”. Escalated terror and intimidation. SO FUCK IT. You can take your Edie Brikell, “Choke me in the shallow water”, song listing posting with “curious, wierd songs, to make you think, grow change” (listing Jackie Blue and a song by “CHICaGO” bullshit and shove it all up your terrorizing, intimidating, bullying asses. And thanks for the posting about the murder in Los Gatos featuring the YouTube video put out by the townspeople.
Death threats. And why not? You gangers have gone about ruining my life in every way that you could for over a year. You knew that I didn’t even know why. Although I accidentally exposed one of your brothers, I had no mallilcious intent whatsoever. I didn’t understand because I saw the situation in terms of the person that I was to his children. You do not understand me because we are completely diametrically opposed in character composition. You know that as well. This is just entertainment for you.
I took action last November as you and your friends were ruining my car, my possessions and my life. I wrote EVERYTHING that I DO NOT KNOW about this and every thing else down, signed it and sent it to those friends that you claim I do not have. It is in the north, south, east, and in a safety deposit box in the west in my name. Couldn’t find that paperwork could you? That’s because I took a lot of care to act like I don’t care. But there was enough information lieing around for you to know that maybe there would be an investigation. I also spent Father’s Day weekend updating that letter and laundry list with every thing that has happened since. Did you see me personally mailing my updates out? No because my aunt took them to the UPS Store for me. My story–THE TRUTH–is out there. And I have a few friends and one family member in particular that will be all over this if anything happens to me. I have taken steps to assure that the men after me will be exposed for their activities, for which they will be unable to defend or explain.
I have taken your threats to heart as they parallel my experiences. I have stayed away from the police out of fear and because I witnessed the police enable you guys time and time again down south. I haven ‘t necessarily considered them an ally and assumed that because I know criminal information about you guys that you would stop your shit if I just stayed away. Nothing has worked. You keep escalating and you hurt my animal and claim more physical harmful intent. Your number is out there, too. And so is a lot of information about you, where you live, and what you do. Does it feel good? Are you worried now, too? Maybe you aren’t too worried, but the men who instigated my demise most assuredly are concerned.
