Now Isn't Time

Today I'm sharing a recent column by Jan Jarboe Russell that was published in the San Antonio Express-News.

There's never a time for a bill like this. It's a recipe for disaster.

Missing Equipment

This article from this morning's San Antonio Express-News describes more missing law enforcement equipment, this time from the state. The number of missing weapons is especially worrisome.

For information on over $30 million dollars worth of federal equipment (some of it sophisticated surveillance equipment) that is still unaccounted for, despite the fact that a detailed, itemized list of this was submitted to Lamar Smith and he promised to look into it, please see my post here from 11/17/09 entitled "Illegal Surveillance Summary".

National Stalking Awareness Month

January is National Stalking Awareness Month [see top document], which probably explains this recent press release by AG Holder's office [see second document]. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much (if anything) in the way of actual action to help victims here--just more talk. Notice that it contains no mention at all of organized/gang stalking, which is actually the more serious issue. For the U.S. DOJ to totally ignore organized/gang stalking and continue to refuse to do anything to help victims is absolutely outrageous.

Far more encouraging (if it's true!) is the following post, the original of which can be found at:

The statement about the "little hick town" at the end is of special interest to me.

This was recently published in the San Antonio Express-News.

I guess any excuse will do.

Judges (Or Lack Thereof)

It's unbelievable and unacceptable that after more than two years, we still lack federal judges and prosecuting attorneys, particularly for some of the busiest criminal courts in the country.

Of course, it goes without saying that we can't afford appointees for these positions who are in any way incompetent, unqualified, or corrupt.

Martin Luther King Day

I started writing a piece honoring Dr. King to post here today and then found this editorial in the San Antonio Express News that makes the same points far more effectively.

I know King wasn't perfect by any means, but then none of us are. His ideas and methods remain as sound today as they were when he lived.

There's a good chance he may have been a victim of organized crime, too.

Another Victim's Story

A victim of serious organized/gang stalking from another state has bravely documented his situation and given me permission to link to his story.

Please go to:


to watch his 19-minute video that explains and documents what he's forced to endure.

January is National Stalking Awareness Month. PLEASE make it clear to your elected officials that you know what organized/gang stalking is, how it differs from regular stalking, and who and what are behind it. Then insist that tougher laws be passed against it. Make it VERY clear that you're not going to stop complaining about it until they take concrete action against this abomination!!

Are You A Good German?

Today I'm sharing a post I found on the Free Us Now weblog, found at The actual link to this piece is:

Now go back and read the earlier post here entitled "Empire Builders".

Kristy's Law

To My Texas Readers:
The proposed legislation described here by Sen. Uresti would close a gaping hole in Texas' legal protections for victims of domestic violence. PLEASE do everything you can to support it!! Approximately 1 in 4 women (and some estimates I've seen are considerably higher than this) will be the victims of domestic violence at some point in their lives, and this law would greatly increase protection for them. You can be a true hero by emailing, calling, or faxing as many of your elected officials, friends, and neighbors as possible and letting them know you support the passage of this bill. It only takes a few seconds of your time to click on the envelope icon at the bottom of this post, add a sentence or two stating your support for the bill and your request that your state senator vote for it, and email it. Those few seconds WILL save innocent lives!!

To My Readers Elsewhere:
Please take the time to check into protections available to victims of domestic violence where you live to make sure your area does not also have this loophole, because it's actually a fairly common one. If so, PLEASE look into fixing it and start letting your elected officials know you want something done about it.

To Everyone:
Let's honor Kristy's memory by doing everything we can to protect victims of domestic violence and get help for abusers. Domestic violence and abuse cases are currently skyrocketing.

We need a world where ALL people are treated with respect. Those who can't seem to do this for whatever reason need to be held accountable and experience negative consequences from their actions until they can be made to understand that their behavior is unacceptable and must improve. And until it does, victims must be protected to the fullest extent of the law. (This means protection orders must be ENFORCED as well as available!!)

The Culture Of Impunity

It's fitting that I've spent my last few posts discussing the importance of sharing for victims of organized crime and organized/gang stalking. Another friend and fellow stalking victim has recently written and posted a two-part essay that I believe is very important, and when I contacted them to ask permission to share portions of it here, they not only agreed, but were even kind enough to help me edit their material into a briefer format that's geared toward American readers. (The author is from another country.) I've included the location of the original posts at the end of the piece for those who'd like to read them in their entirety.

The Culture Of Impunity

"In the cases of those of us who are targeted, the culture of impunity
that is created is one of psychopaths, rogue and mercenary officers,
government officials, corporate executives, politicians, lawyers,
medical personnel, and other professionals, etc. actually engaging in
criminal conspiracy to break the law.

This was well demonstrated in the video I published previously called,
Listen To A Stranger, where ordinary people were asked to commit
crimes such as robbery, drugging, and kidnapping at the behest of
actors who were impersonating police officers, federal agents, bounty
hunters, etc. as well as the victims of these crimes.

Not a single person questioned either the identity of the person or
the legal authority of the request to commit the crime. One woman
explicitly stated that she assumed she wouldn’t get in trouble since
the person asking her to rob a woman claimed to be a police officer.

It is this culture of impunity and the blind faith sheep mentality
that it encourages that the American Declaration can protect us from.

While the targets of this type of abuse have been few in numbers, the
numbers are rapidly increasing and these strategies are now becoming
standard practice in the abuse of social activists, whistle blowers,
etc. as well as innocent targets like me and others.

It’s my opinion, that people like me who were targeted in the 1960s
and 1970s were simply the experimental test cases for the development
of these techniques by Psychopathic rogue and mercenary elements who
have now created an industry out of them and are advocating and
selling them to government agencies, corporations, organized crime and
any other buyer who can afford it and wants to target someone for any
number of reasons."

"In my opinion, this topic is critical to understanding exactly how horrific crimes like Organized Stalking can occur in the West, in countries which laud themselves on being open democracies and claim to value individual rights.

We are, in fact, open democracies and we do, in fact, value civil rights both individual and social, except ….

And it’s the words that come after the 'except' that are what matters and what turns these claims into nothing more than a shameless hypocrisy. It’s the 'except' that establishes that we live in a Culture of Impunity for certain elements in our society and our open democracy and social and individual civil rights only matter when it’s convenient to the “right” people."

Legislation to make Organized Stalking Illegal Is A Necessity!

The Benefits Of Sharing

My post immediately prior to this one was the result of information and documentation that was shared with me by a fellow victim who has been extremely helpful and supportive. As soon as I saw the information, I realized its potential importance to other victims and was glad to be able to try and help her get it out to as many people as possible. [Note: These posts can be easily emailed to others, the media, political representatives, law enforcement professionals, etc. by clicking on the envelope icon at the end of each.]

Recently, another victim of organized/gang stalking contacted me with a link to his video on what he has been subjected to, and he was kind enough to include permission to share it. The link is:

I sent this link on to others I correspond with, and one of them immediately recognized certain details that may connect what's being done to him to a particular stalker and/or group.

Having this information helps those of us who study stalking with a goal of ending it tremendously. Hopefully, this knowledge will also be able to be used to help the victim eventually. In any case, he's also now in touch with a group of caring, supportive people in similar situations who understand very well what he's being subjected to.

One of the primary goals of the evil that is organized/gang stalking is to isolate victims so they feel hopeless and helpless. Because this person had the courage to reach out to us, his problems can now be addressed on several different fronts.

The most important advice I can give to fellow victims, whether they are victims of stalking, crime, domestic violence or abuse, or whatever, is to keep fighting back and keep reaching out to others. I say this knowing all too well from personal experience that many of the websites and discussion groups that claim to support victims are often actually run by stalkers, but when you run across these (and you likely will, at some point!), just cross them off your list and move on. Don't ever give up!--that's just what criminals want you to do, and it only encourages them to keep victimizing others. Don't fall into the vengeance trap, either, because it will ultimately end up hurting you far more than those victimizing you. Instead, speak out as loudly and clearly as possible to as many others as possible, and remember that you can always find people who really care and give really good advice right here.

I can be reached by email at I'm always happy to share victims' stories, advice, information, etc. (with personal information removed), but I won't share what you tell me without your permission, so be sure to include who can be given access (me only, private support network, post on blog, etc.).

Important Alternative Resources For Victims

Recently, my friend Michelle sent me this copy of an article from the Harvard Human Rights Journal. Written by the lead counsel, Caroline Bettinger-Lopez, the article describes a petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights filed on behalf of Jessica Gonzales against the United States Government.

Ms. Gonzales is a U.S. citizen whose three daughters were abducted by her estranged husband in June 1999. Despite having a restraining order against her husband because of previous incidents of domestic violence, local law enforcement officers ignored Ms. Gonzales' repeated calls for help. As a result, the Gonzales' girls were brutally murdered by their father.

Ms. Gonzales filed a lawsuit against the local police department in federal court, but her case was dismissed before discovery even began. The case went on to the Supreme Court, which decided that enforcement of protective orders was not manditory.

The Supreme Court's ruling shocked and outraged victims' rights and other groups across the country. Normally, Ms. Gonzales' case would have ended there, but she and her supporters decided to try an obscure legal remedy. They filed a petition with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) claiming that the U.S. was responsible for human rights violations. Although the Commission has no enforcement authority, because it is an arm of the Organization of American States, its decisions "...carry significant moral and political weight and contribute to international standard setting" (p. 185).

Upon examination of Ms. Gonzales' petition by the Commission, it was upheld. This was the first time a domestic violence survivor had filed a case against the U.S. in an international court. The Gonzales case exposed serious human rights violations committed by a U.S. Government used to accusing other countries. For the first time, the U.S. was held accountable for its own actions at the international level and was shown to not be in compliance with international human rights standards.

At the same time, Ms. Gonzales also pursued other international avenues for relief. Although none of them offer any enforceable remedies, all of these have provided forums for exposing the violations of human rights involved and put pressure on the U.S. Government to fix their problems or risk being labeled a Third World country with regard to their stance on human rights.

As a result of the Gonzales case, various other victims and victims' rights groups have also filed petitions against the U.S. Government with the Commission. These petitions are designed to add to the pressure on the government to clean up its act with regard to human rights violations.

Victims of domestic abuse, organized crime, organized/gang stalking, police corruption, hate, and other crimes who are unable to obtain the justice or relief they are entitled to through normal means within the U.S. Government need to be aware that these international options are open to them. At the end of the article, I'm also posting contact and other basic information for victims from the IACHR's website, where additional information is available. Victims from countries other than the U.S. should check to see if they are also eligible to petition the IACHR. (For example, Canadian citizens also have this potential remedy.) Citizens of other countries should look into some of the other international possibilities mentioned in the article as well.

Unfortunately, for many of the most serious U.S. victims of human rights violations like myself and my children, these international remedies are not currently accessible due to the fact that some of the human rights violations being committed against us involve extensive conspiracies to deny us any sort of proper legal representation. We and many others are being victimized by persons with essentially unlimited legal and financial resources and contacts and associates at the highest levels of the U.S. Government. Until ALL American victims are able to obtain the legal help they desperately need, human rights violations in the U.S. are likely to continue and, sadly, expand.
