Organized Stalking is a form of terrorism used against an individual in a malicious attempt to reduce the quality of a persons life so they will: have a nervous break-down, become incarcerated, institutionalized, experience constant mental, emotional, or physical pain, become homeless, and/or commit suicide. This is done using well-orchestrated accusations, lies, rumors, bogus investigations, setups, framings, intimidation, overt or covert threats, vandalism, thefts, sabotage, torture, humiliation, emotional terror and general harassment. It is a “ganging up” by members of the community who follow an organizer and participate in a systematic “terrorizing” of an individual.
Organized gang stalking is the American Holocaust, the invisible Auschwitz, and the most evil, vile, depraved, perverse, sociopathic, draconian and malicious crime that exists. Assassination is a walk in the park compared to this gang-raping of one’s soul, mind, spirit, body, reputation, and overall life. Make no mistake: organized stalking is murder, in fact, it’s likely worse than murder. Those engaged in organized stalking are a cold-blooded killers.
Gang-stalking means one person is targeted by Dark Triad people (psychopaths, sociopaths and malignant narcissists and their flying monkeys, most who don’t even personally know you) for nefarious reasons that are never specified but who want you to know you are being watched. The stalkers seem to have an uncanny, almost supernatural way of infiltrating and ruining every area of your life, even when logic would dictate some situations simply wouldn’t be possible (such as pre-emptively knowing exactly where you will be 24/7 in order to harass you). The goal is to drive you (the “Targeted Individual,” or “TI”) insane or to suicide–or have you incarcerated in a prison or mental institution–or even killed. Here are two articles about it. You can Google “gang-stalking” and find hundreds more.
The Narcissistic Smear Campaign on Steroids: Organized Stalking AKA Gang Stalking, Government-Sponsored Stalking AKA the American Holocaust.
“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. Unofficial operations of this type are, apparently, perpetrated by private investigators and vigilantes – including many former agents and cops, some of whom are members of the quasi-governmental Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIU), sometimes on behalf of corporate clients and others with connections to the public and private elements of America’s security industry.
The techniques may include sabotaging your work at work, spreading false rumors, bullying, and trying to convince your employer to fire you.
Organized stalking can include some of the most insidious and diabolical acts one human can perpetrate on another. In a long term stalking, with the ultimate intent being the demise of the target, organized stalking can include a “romantic” involvement, romantic on the part of the target, but certainly not on the part of the perpetrator.
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.”
Organized stalking is a very serious crime as the aim is to cause the physical or mental death of a person, it is murder.
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.
The Stasi used Zersetzung essentially as a means of psychological oppression and persecution. Findings of operational psychology were formulated into method and applied to political opponents in an effort to undermine their self-confidence and self-esteem. Operations were designed to intimidate and destabilize them by subjecting them to repeated disappointment, and to socially alienate them by interfering with and disrupting their relationships with others as in social undermining. The aim was to induce personal crises in victims, leaving them too unnerved and psychologically distressed to have the time and energy for anti-government activism. The Stasi intentionally concealed their role as mastermind of the operations. Author Jürgen Fuchs was a victim of Zersetzung and wrote about his experience, describing the Stasi’s actions as “psychosocial crime”, and “an assault on the human soul”.
Organized stalking is really a covert government or police investigation. It’s similar to COINTELPRO or red squads, and it’s being used on a lot of innocent people to ruin them and make them look crazy. Gang Stalking is all about government disinformation and using civilian spies/snitches to help with stalking and monitoring innocent people. Organized stalking is group harassment at its best. It’s the targeting of an individual for revenge, jealousy, sport, or to keep them quiet, etc… It’s a psychological attack that can completely destroy a person’s life, while leaving little or no evidence to incriminate the perpetrators.
The goal is to sensitize the target to a stimuli, isolate the target, make them destitute. The secondary goals seem to be to make the target homeless, jobless, give them a breakdown, and the primary goals seems to be to drive the target to suicide.
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.
Gang stalking can be a very real phenomenon with narcissists, whereby their stories about you have incited other people to cyber stalk and bully you or attack you in your everyday life operations.
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.
One form of control by proxy is to engineer situations in which abuse is inflicted upon another person. Such carefully crafted scenarios of embarrassment and humiliation provoke social sanctions (condemnation, opprobrium, or even physical punishment) against the victim. Society, or a social group become the instruments of the narcissist.
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.
Organized stalking methods were used extensively by communist East Germany’s Stasi (state police) as a means of maintaining political control over its citizens. Although they are illegal in the U.S., the same covert tactics are quietly used by America’s local and federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to suppress dissent, silence whistle-blowers, and get revenge against persons who have angered someone with connections to the public and private agencies involved.
Zersetzung, as a concept, involves the annihilation of the inner-self, [involving] targeted spreading of rumors about particular persons with the aid of anonymous [means]… making compromising situations for them by creating confusion over the facts… [and] the engendering of hysterical and depressive behaviors in the target person. These programs were designed to secretly destroy a target’s personal and professional life, ruin them financially, and prevent them from reaching their potential, with the intention to produce irreversible depressive and panic-stricken behaviors.
Illegal counterintelligence operations have been perpetrated against Americans by urban police departments in the U.S. since the late 1800s.
Traditionally, the groups of mostly-undercover police officers involved are called “red squads,” although the modern official term is “Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs).”
The most well-documented example of such operations was the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO (Counter-Intelligence Programs) under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover. Those operations ran from 1956 until 1971 when they were exposed by political activists who broke into an FBI office and obtained secret documents which they handed over to the press. COINTELPRO’s official goal was to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” individuals and groups deemed to be subversive.
Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit, disrupt and negatively redirect action. The FBI and police abused the legal system to harass dissidents and make them appear to be criminals. Officers of the law gave perjured testimony and presented fabricated evidence as a pretext for false arrests and wrongful imprisonment. They discriminatorily enforced tax laws and other government regulations and used conspicuous surveillance, “investigative” interviews, and grand jury subpoenas in an effort to intimidate activists and silence their supporters.
As the U.S. Senate’s investigation of COINTELPRO found, tactics used by the FBI included many of the methods associated with gang stalking, such as overt surveillance (stalking for psychological operations purposes). The agency even perpetrated crimes such as blackmail and assassinations.
Organized stalking methods include warrantless electronic surveillance, slander, blacklisting, and a variety of psychological operations. The latter presumably exploit findings from studies such as the notorious MKUltra experiments conducted on American and Canadian citizens by the CIA, as well as the aforementioned psychological torture tactics refined by the Stasi. In fact, as explained in the overview below, former CIA analyst and expert on the history of U.S. spying, George O’Toole wrote about a connection between the CIA and the aforementioned LEIUs.
An organized stalking victim is systematically isolated and harassed in a manner intended to cause sustained emotional torment while creating the least-possible amount of evidence of stalking that would be visible to others. The process is sometimes referred to as “no-touch torture.” Methods are specifically chosen for their lack of easily-captured objective evidence. Perpetrators use common annoyances such as constant noise by neighbors or rude comments and abusive behavior by strangers, but on a frequent ongoing long-term basis. The cumulative effects of relentless exposure to such tactics can amount to psychological torture for the victim.
Accomplices – such as neighbors, co-workers, and even friends or relatives of the victim in some cases – are recruited to participate (often unwittingly) by counterintelligence personnel using various means, such as by telling them that the target is a potential threat or that the target is the subject of an “investigation.” One essential goal is having the target lose their job, financial stability and find themselves blacklisted from finding new employment. A whole set of psychological operations are perpetrated against targeted individuals. These methods, described in detail in the overview below, include such things as threats, slander, vandalism, abusive phone calls, computer hacking, tormenting the victim with noise, and “mobbing” (orchestrated verbal harassment by strangers, neighbors, or co-workers).
Accounts by numerous victims of organized stalking share common specific details – suggesting that the perpetrators are following a well-tested and standardized playbook of methods that have proven to be easily kept off of the radar of potential witnesses and the mainstream news media.
Ted L. Gunderson was a high-level FBI official during the COINTELPRO era. After he retired from the agency he asserted that a much more sophisticated version of COINTELPRO began to re-emerge in the 1980s.

Based on news reports, accounts of self-proclaimed victims, and the DOJ statistics cited above, the apparent scope of current organized stalking operations would require the acquiescence of multiple federal and local government agencies (including the FBI and the Department of Justice, among others). Local and federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies now share crime and national security information via a nationwide network of data “fusion centers” – an element of the extensive post-9/11 homeland security infrastructure.
America’s now-vast industry of intelligence-security contractors, federal intelligence agencies (there are 16 not including the Director of National Intelligence office), and the hundreds of local police department Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs) make it difficult to speculate about exactly how domestic counterintelligence operations are currently being administered.
Increasingly-common reports of illegal spying by corporations as well as reports of police officers and federal agents sometimes initiating gang stalking operations for personal vendettas further complicate the analysis. Numerous job listings by intelligence/security contractor corporations for “surveillance role players” with active security clearances and training in counterintelligence (links and details in the overview below) strongly suggest that federal law enforcement agencies have largely outsourced these operations – which would be consistent with other security programs. A June 10, 2013 article in USA Today noted that about 1.4 million Americans had top-secret security clearances.
Federal and local law enforcement agencies also make extensive use of criminal informants (who are in large supply in America, with its extraordinary per capita incarceration rate). It would be natural for such informants to be used in a counterintelligence program. Indeed, the original Cointelpro was found by the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee investigations to have delegated some activities to organized crime groups. First-hand accounts of self-proclaimed victims of gang stalking support this assumption: by their appearance and behavior, many street-level perpetrators appear to possibly be ex-convicts.
Regardless of the exact nature of organized stalking in the U.S., any national counterintelligence program would require at least passive acquiescence by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) – just like the first version of COINTELPRO did. U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy approved some of the original COINTELPRO operations. Because of the critical role of the DOJ in allowing organized stalking to occur, I devote an entire section of this overview to that agency.
Gang stalking apparently targets American citizens deemed to be dissidents or whistle-blowers (and perhaps potential dissidents and whistle-blowers), although others might be targeted for other reasons – such as for experimental or training purposes. For perspective, it should be remembered that for two decades the CIA performed secret illegal experiments on U.S. and Canadian citizens (the infamous MKUltra program). Those experiments included physical and psychological torture.
A lot of accounts by self-proclaimed targets of gang stalking suggest that people are often subjected to severe long-term harassment simply because they crossed someone connected with the agencies and security firms which perpetrate such operations.
An example of that type of abuse occurred in April 2012, when USA Today reported that one of its reporters and an editor were slandered by a secret disinformation campaign waged by an intelligence contractor firm to discredit them because the newspaper had investigated and reported on that contractor. The company involved conducted propaganda campaigns for the U.S. military.
Similarly, in August 2013 it was reported that at least a dozen National Security Agency (NSA) employees had used their surveillance system access to spy on their current and former spouses and partners. If you happen to be one of those former spouses or partners, however, there’s no way to hold the NSA employee accountable for what they do in abusing their access to their surveillance system.
In addition to being morally reprehensible, gang stalking – just like the original version of the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations – is illegal. It violates criminal laws in all fifty states against stalking, as well as grossly violating the U.S. Constitution’s prohibitions against warrantless searches and extra-judicial punishment.
While the vast majority of Americans are never personally targeted by gang stalking, they should still be concerned about the existence of such operations. Even if such activities were constitutionally legitimate (clearly they are not), they would still have an enormous potential for abuse as a personal or political weapon by the practitioners. Ending this cowardly and illegal practice by law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, and their parasitic corporate contractors will require exposing what is happening to the public. Anyone reading this can assist with that exposure by simply sharing this information with others.
The American Holocaust is here, brought to you by the DEA, FBI, NSA, CIA and every other variation of government alphabet soup.
Gang Stalkers aim to destroy your credibility and terrorize you into silence.
Gang Stalkers use ‘Degrading Themes’ to terrorize the target causing them constant stress and anxiety. A Degrading Theme is a form of psychological harassment that stigmatizes the victim and destroys their reputation. The objective is to make the target a social outcast by deliberately spreading lies and distortions to individuals in their personal and professional environment. The target is usually accused of being a pedophile, a racist or a homosexual. However it is not uncommon for the target to be labeled as a prostitute, rapist, terrorist, mentally-ill, a drug addict or dealer. Often Stalkers will label the target with a combination of these.
To effectively assassinate the target’s character they operate under the guise of bogus police investigations and use statements and quotes from individuals who are paid to set-up the target. They even invest considerable effort in manipulating circumstances and staging scenarios to make the victim appear as a pedophile, racist, homosexual, prostitute, drug addict, etc… The label of pedophile is most often used because it is considered by society to be the most heinous crime. This accusation easily mobilizes people against the target. Anyone who cares about children become eager participants in harassment skits directed towards you. It’s an accusation that can easily destroy your career and alienate you from your family and friends. Likewise racism, can easily motivate individuals to bully a target. Community Stalkers spread rumors throughout various ethnic communities that you are anti-‘whatever nationality’ and need to be taught a lesson. This is a time tested strategy that has been used for centuries. Empires have been built on it. It’s called ‘Divide and Conquer’.
It’s not unusual for a target to be harassed by several ethnic groups at the same time. The Stalkers feed each community lies, adapting them to the stereotypes associated with each group. Again, to be most effective, they will use individuals belonging to each respective ethnicity who are paid, bribed or blackmailed into spreading false evidence and making false statements to condemn you. Accusations of homosexuality are common, especially in religious circles. Homosexuality is very clearly prohibited by biblical standards (Romans 1:26-27, Leviticus 20:13).
This accusation terrorizes a victim and makes them an instant outcast in their religious community. It is commonly used to unofficially excommunicate a congregation member. In the absence of a scriptural justification for dis-fellowshipping, Elders will use the homosexual label to harass an individual into leaving their congregation. Apparently, Elders in certain Christian organizations play a role in arranging marriages. When young women refuse to be coerced into dating selected men, they are labeled as homosexuals. In doing so, Elders protect the pride of the rejected males and effectively dissuade other potential suitors from approaching the women in question. It’s a well designed psychological trap meant to manipulate the target into doing something against her will.
Smear Campaigns are extremely harmful, and effective, when executed properly. Often the accusations are spread among the target’s neighbors who participate in driving the victim out of town. Most frequently the rumors follow the target into their new community only for the cycle of harassment to begin again.
Degrading Themes are favored by harassers for the ‘Catch 22’ it imposes on the victim. Many targets shy away from talking about the psychological abuse or defending themselves due to fear of further humiliation and stigmatization. They are put in a situation where talking about the harassment contributes to spreading the rumors and lies being told about them.
Harassment skits are designed to traumatize victims by making them think the entire world is against them. To setup their targets, Gang Stalkers use a technique called Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP). It’s a way of conditioning the mind to notice ‘triggers’ in the environment. These triggers can be shapes, objects, colors, behaviors or sounds. Most importantly, Gang Stalkers condition the minds of their victims to develop anxiety upon seeing or hearing these triggers. People who are familiar with Gang based harassment will often make reference to mind control.
The term ‘mind control’ throws many people off because of its association with the paranormal. What these individuals are really referring to is the conditioning of the mind using NLP. The objective of the terrorists/Gang is to gradually expand their victim’s number and variety of triggers. In doing so, the target is exposed to a trigger almost everywhere they go and is therefore in a constant state of anxiety.
The end result of a successful harassment campaign is psychological damage. Anything from a nervous breakdown to suicide. Some individuals become highly agitated and violent. Ultimately they may end up in jail. Either way the Gang Stalkers are happy. They essentially ‘kill’ a person without pulling the trigger. And they get off scot-free. It’s the perfect crime.
The mind conditioning can be done so gradually that the victim is not conscious of it. However the subconscious mind will still perceive the stimuli used to develop a trigger. For example, your stalkers may drive around you in brand new white cars. After a few weeks you might think to yourself, ‘I guess white is a popular color among new car owners’. You will not realize that your mind is being conditioned to notice the color white.
Once the trigger has set into your mind they will use it to set you up. If you are being labeled as a pedophile, your stalkers may have children dressed in white cross the street in front of you or walk past you on the bus. Your eyes will be cued to the color of their clothing. You will find yourself actually looking in their direction and noticing them even if you are a person who normally pays little attention to children.
One of the stalkers will be conveniently positioned to humiliate you while you are looking at the children. They will stare at you and smile in a lewd way, smirk, sneer, laugh or glare at you in an accusatory manner. The first time it happens you may brush it off as an odd encounter. But as it happens repeatedly your discomfort will escalate. The stalkers stage situations to insinuate that the target is doing something wrong when they look at children. This makes the target anxious. The anxiety eventually develops into a fear of being around children.
Eventually, people who are not within the Stalking group will notice that the target looks uncomfortable and behaves oddly around children. This of course will appear to give support to the rumors they have carefully planted among your personal and professional associates. The Gang Stalkers will have successfully ‘framed’ the target for a crime they never committed. This is just one of the methods Gang Stalkers use to turn people against the target.
The process also applies to sound. For example, if you cough or sneeze on occasion, your stalkers may mock you by doing the same. To make sure they have your attention they may follow their cough with sentences or words making reference to something that is going on in your life. If you are planning a renovation or a party or a vacation, they will mention these to remind you that you are being spied on. Eventually you will feel anxious whenever you hear a person cough or sneeze. Some religious groups use these tactics within their congregations as a way of making targeted Christians too uncomfortable to attend meetings. The Elders make sure to use degrading themes to ensure the target will never voice their complaints.
Not all harassment skits involve Neuro-Linguistic-Programming. Sometimes it’s plain threats and bullying. Threats and Bullying in a well armed society, such as the USA Has Many Times lead to those playing these Gang Games with a Fatal Case of Lead Poisoning.
Gang Stalking can be seen in a new form of social bullying and cyber terrorism. Cyber bullies play a form of a Machiavellian game — targeting an innocent victim, branding them publicly as a violent, dangerous, deranged, or drugged-out criminal, then recruiting friends and family to come cyber stalk their social media pages. If the person lives locally and can be physically stalked, harassed, and bullied, strangers will be sent to do so to unnerve and frighten or cause fear in a target the same way.
When a Machiavellian thinker with Malignant Narcissist and Psychopath tendencies decides to target what is known as a Narcissistic Rival for this sort of social destruction and physical torture, it tends to go on for months — sometimes years. In the case of the most mentally compromised of predators, torture of a preferred scapegoat target might continue to happen for decades. Being the victim of repeated domestic abuse, violence, and being left with zero right to normal freedom of movement and rights to privacy can take only a few days or weeks of experiencing to cause a Narcissistic Abuse victim a lifetime of PTSD issues and correlated stress illness damage. The news stories, articles and court cases along with declassified government documents describing counter-intelligence, surveillance and harassment methods prove gang-stalking to be a very real phenomenon.
Counterintelligence is the detection and countering of threats posed by enemy subversion, espionage, and sabotage. Counterintelligence operations include surveillance (spying on enemies), sabotage (disruption of enemies’ activities), and disinformation (efforts to deceive enemies and – when it serves the objectives of the counterintelligence program – the public). A wide range of activities can qualify as counterintelligence operations, depending upon how a targeted person or group is deemed to be an “enemy,” and what activities and thoughts are deemed to be “subversive.” The FBI famously spied on Martin Luther King, Jr., for example, and even tried to blackmail him, on the grounds that his views were subversive.
Although some of the strategies and tactics associated with counterintelligence operations are used by private security personnel, for example, on behalf of corporate clients, they are most frequently used by government intelligence agencies. Here, for example, is a description of the organizational nature of counterintelligence, in a Wikipedia entry:
In most countries the counterintelligence mission is spread over multiple organizations, though one usually predominates. There is usually a domestic counterintelligence service, usually part of a larger organization such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States.
Uses of counterintelligence tactics by security personnel can be completely legal – for example, a government wiretap authorized by a legitimate search warrant. In other cases, the tactics are purely illegal – for example, “black bag jobs” (break-ins) and computer hacking by private investigators. Often though, the tactics are in a grey area of dubious legality. For example, depending upon the context, a “warning” can actually be a veiled threat. Similarly, if an agent or private investigator contacts a friend, relative, or associate of a targeted person, under the pretense of conducting an “investigation,” such contact can actually be an act of slander – the intentional destruction of the reputation and relationships of the target (even if it is difficult to legally prove).
COINTELPRO (short for “Counterintelligence Program”) was a secret, illegal program run by the FBI from 1956 until it was exposed by civilian activists in 1971. The U.S. Senate’s Church Committee investigations in the mid-1970s found that, during the COINTELPRO era, FBI agents and their various accomplices systematically spied on, slandered, terrorized, blackmailed, and committed acts of violence (including murder) against American citizens who were deemed to be politically subversive by the FBI’s right-wing director, J. Edgar Hoover.
Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs) – also called Red Squads – are intelligence units within local police departments (especially urban police departments). In addition to performing legitimate law enforcement activities, such as infiltrating criminal organizations, LEIUs have been used since the late 1800s to spy on and disrupt groups which are viewed as subversive by corporations and politicians. In 1956, the same year the FBI initiated its COINTELPRO program, 26 Red Squads gathered in San Francisco and formed an organization for sharing confidential intelligence. They adopted the name Law Enforcement Intelligence Unit. In 2008, the organization changed its name to the “Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Units,” but they retained the original acronym, LEIU. Because of its status as a private (although quasi-governmental) entity, the association’s files are not subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Based on their history, their reported connections with U.S. intelligence agencies, their secrecy, their quasi-governmental status, their members’ skill sets, their national network of professional connections, their organization’s membership of both current and former law enforcement personnel, and anecdotal reports, LEIUs are very possibly the main source of the illegal spying and harassment referred to by such terms as “disruption” and “gang stalking.”
Surveillance Role Players (SRPs) perform jobs whose nature the federal government chooses to keep secret from the American public. During the past decade or so, numerous job advertisements for SRPs have been posted by military contractors. From the advertisements, it is clear that the jobs involve some type of domestic intelligence operations, but the specific elements of the job are never described. America’s news media outlets have shown no interest in this topic, perhaps because it does not involve the Kardashians. Interestingly, the job listings specify that these are mostly part-time positions – which presumably would make it easier to conceal the jobs from neighbors and others who know the people performing such “work.” The job listings specify that applicants must have active secret clearances and counterintelligence training, although the stated education requirement is often just a high school diploma. Some of the ads note that an element of the job is to “coordinate with local law enforcement.”
Although most Americans are unaware of it, the U.S. has a huge supply of people with security clearances – over 5.1 million people as of 2013– almost a third of whom worked for private firms. Nearly one-third of the Americans with top secret clearances are private contractors, rather than government employees. Whether SRPs are engaged in stalking some of their fellow citizens will probably remain a mystery in the near future. People who like easy money – and who are afraid to violate their security clearances – are far more plentiful in America than individuals with the courage and integrity needed to become whistle-blowers.
Disruption – in the parlance of counterintelligence agents – is a strategy for neutralizing an individual (or group) believed to pose a potential threat to the clients or members of a security agency. For example, if there is no legal basis for arresting and prosecuting someone, and assassination is not a legal or practical option, an alternative is a long-term campaign of intense surveillance and harassment. The goal – at least ostensibly – is to limit the person’s potential to create trouble; this is done by keeping him or her distracted, agitated, and preoccupied with various challenges and provocations, by undermining the individual’s social and professional relationships, and by otherwise interfering with the person’s life in various ways.
Unlike the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations, “disruption” is a strategy, rather than a program – although there might currently be one or more secret programs which involve the strategy and (often) illegal tactics associated with disruption. In recent years, classified documents made public by National Security Agency (NSA) whistle-blower Edward Snowden exposed that the U.S. government and its private contractors engage in illegal domestic mass surveillance, and lie about it. Additional revelations in recent years include news reports – and a U.S. Senate report – which showed that the CIA and its contractors torture people and lie about it. Such revelations, among many others, add plausibility to reports by self-proclaimed victims of organized stalking.
In some cases, as with blacklisting, the motive for disruption activities can simply be revenge by the people who initiated the process, rather than a belief that the target actually poses a threat. Similarly – and this applies to a lot of activities in America’s massive “national security” industry – the actual primary objective can simply be to justify paychecks for the various bureaucrats, contractors, and agents involved. Although disruption operations can be born out of illegitimate motives, such as an informant’s desire for vengeance, or to fulfill de facto quotas – the harassment can, in effect, validate itself through provocation: If you terrorize and spy on someone over a long period, he or she is likely to eventually respond in ways which can be used to rationalize labeling the person as a potential threat.
“Disruption” operations often involve tactics which are illegal, but difficult to prove. These tactics include – but are not limited to – overt surveillance (stalking), slander, blacklisting, “mobbing” (intense, organized harassment in the workplace), “black bag jobs,” 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.
Although the general public is mostly unfamiliar with the practice, references to “disruption” operations – described as such – do occasionally appear in the news media. In May 2006, for example, an article in The Globe and Mail, a Canadian national newspaper, reported that the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) used “Diffuse and Disrupt” tactics against suspects for whom they lacked sufficient evidence to prosecute. A criminal defense attorney stated that many of her clients complained of harassment by authorities, although they were never arrested.
In November 2010, a classified U.S. diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks documented a discussion between a U.S. State Department official and the director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), in which the CSIS director said the agency was “vigorously harassing” members of Hezbollah – an apparent reference to disruption crimes. An article published by The Intercept in February 2016 explained that the FBI had adopted a system of measuring its counterterrorism achievements by counting the number of “disruptions” of terrorism threats the agency has supposedly achieved. As usual with matters involving the federal government’s primary secret police agency, when journalists inquired about the exact meaning of this statistical category, the FBI refused to discuss it:
The FBI didn’t respond to emails asking basic questions such as what qualifies as a disruption, [or] why the number is so much higher than the bureau’s recorded arrests…
Regardless of the exact scope of official disruption programs (and non-sanctioned practices by private investigators and LEIUs), many points in The Intercept’s article are clearly relevant. For example, the following quotes are included from an ACLU report:
The FBI’s overbroad and aggressive use of its investigative and surveillance powers, and its willingness to employ ‘disruption strategies’ against subjects not charged with crimes can have serious, adverse impacts on innocent Americans, being placed under investigation creates an intense psychological, and often financial, burden on the people under the microscope and their families, even when they are never charged with a crime…
Zersetzung (German for “decomposition” or “corrosion”) was the term used by communist East Germany’s infamous secret police agency, the Stasi, to refer to the long-term effects of “disruption” operations. A disruption strategy seeks to terrorize and socially isolate the victim, and to degrade his or her financial and emotional status – as well as inflicting the various physical effects of perpetual stress. Sometimes the word appears in the English language press; for example, in October 2004, The Sunday Times, a major newspaper in the U.K., reported that the intelligence agency MI5 uses disruption tactics to punish whistle-blowers who expose crimes perpetrated by the government.
“Gang Stalking” is a slang term for disruption operations. Although it appears frequently online, the term “gang stalking” – unlike the term “disruption” – virtually never appears in official documents, except in occasional quotes by non-officials. Very likely, the term was coined by U.S. intelligence agencies for the purposes of online disinformation. Disruption operations are not perpetrated by criminal gangs, so the term is possibly intended to obfuscate the nature of the spying and harassment. Another term which is widely-used to refer to the same counterintelligence tactics, but which is slightly less deceptive, is “organized stalking.” As with the term “gang stalking” though – and the related term “targeted individual,” the term “organized stalking” primarily appears in websites, videos, and online comments whose purpose is to spread disinformation by discrediting legitimate reports of disruption operations.
In any case, the term “gang stalking” has gained traction. Even apparently-legitimate accounts of this form of spying and harassment often include the term. Whatever its origin and its defects, the term “gang stalking” has something of a foothold in online discussions, even though the subject remains mostly unknown to the general public. As far as I know, the term “gang stalking” has not yet found its way into any major published dictionaries.
Whistle-blowers are rare among the people who staff the giant pig trough that is America’s shadowy, bloated, post-9/11 security infrastructure. Also, the “code of silence” which prevails among corrupt law enforcement agents has deep roots. In addition, private investigators and other security contractors are subject to even less oversight than official enforcers. Consequently, the precise nature of the various programs and operations which make use of “disruption” crimes, is likely to remain obscure in the near future. Sometimes though, objective – if indirect – evidence hints at the expanding scope of abuses of power by the bureaucrats and thugs in America’s security industry. The following statistical trend could be an example of that, but it is impossible to make confident inferences from it.
Apparently, “gang stalking” began to appear among online searches in approximately 2005, and has increased steadily since then. The graph below was generated via the Google Trends webpage in May 2016. Based on this limited information though, it is anyone’s guess regarding, for example, whether the trend reflects an increase in disruption operations, or simply a growing awareness of such operations. Also, it should be understood that Google Trends graphs only reflect the frequency of online searches of a particular topic relative to past searches for that same topic; they do not display the total number of searches. “Gang Stalking” – or “disruption” operations are still mostly unknown among the general public.
A cover article in The Washington Post Magazine in January 2007 by a journalist familiar with military policies and weapon systems portrayed self-proclaimed victims of gang stalking as intelligent and credible, and suggested that claims about exotic non-lethal weapons being used by the U.S. government to harass targeted individuals were plausible. Former CIA division chief Melvin Goodman was quoted in a June 2008 article by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (America’s oldest continuously-published weekly magazine) on the vast private contractor element of the intelligence-security community:
My major concern is the lack of accountability, the lack of responsibility. The entire industry is essentially out of control. It’s outrageous.
A June 2013 article in the Nation said this about activities by private security firms, the FBI, and the Department of Justice:
One might think that what we are looking at is Cointelpro 2.0 – an outsourced surveillance state – but in fact it’s worse.
Articles in the Washington Times and Wired magazine about the September 2013 mass shooting at the Washington D.C. Navy Yard included reports of speculation that the incident resulted from the shooter having been systematically tormented by gang stalking, including tactics such as constant noise harassment.

Gangstalking, organized stalking, and counter-intelligence stalking are all umbrella terms describing a series of techniques utilized by a group to instill mental instability within a victim with the intent to discredit, bankrupt, sabotage, harass, extort and even drive a victim to suicide. A victim of this form of harassment can have their reputation, credibility, careers, relationships and entire life put into ruins. Techniques such as mind games, perception manipulation, organized stalking, covert harassment, constant surveillance and possibly electronic harassment (directed-energy weapon, electromagnetic frequency weapons, satellite weapons) are used to push a victim to mental instability.
Proving one’s targeting can be very challenging, and there is very little law enforcement support, which allows this form of psychological warfare to be extremely effective. It is believed this is a continuation of the FBI’s COINTELPRO operation, which has grown stronger, more refined, and more technologically sophisticated with time. Several former high level FBI, NSA, and CIA officials have publicly stated that this crime exists and involves corrupt factions of federal agencies, local law enforcement, and civilian spies / criminal informants / confidential informants. This phenomenon exists across the globe, and it’s formally recognized in many other nations.
Hope: Ground-Breaking Bill Propose in California To Formally Outlaw Organized STalking
A groundbreaking bill proposal on Organized Torture authored by Dr. Tomo Shibata, author, acclaimed human rights analyst and sociologist holding an interdisciplinary Ph.D with high distinction from the School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences (Paris, France), has been presented to the California State Legislature. Unequivocally, Dr. Shibata, who has published extensively against human rights violations in Japanese and American journals, presented at various United Nations Human Rights Commission meetings, and is an Advisory Board Member of Freedom for Targeted Individuals, notes, “The proposed bill titled the Organized Torture Act declares that Organized Covert Torture is a Crime against Humanity.”
The Organized Stalking, Torture, and harassment surveillance is being run, it is observed and/or surmised by former FBI Los Angeles Chief and Special Agent In Charge Ted Gunderson, former FBI Special Agent Geral Sosbee, former CIA Scientist Robert Duncan, former high-ranking SIS Security Officer Bryan Kofron, former NSA Intelligence Analyst Karen Melton-Stewart, Dr. Shibata, and some human rights advocates in touch with reporting victims by groups that profit from gross human rights violations such as Fusion Center contractors, pro-subjugation security companies, secret societies, Freemasons, KKK, Satanic cults, drug cartels, local mafia, criminal elements within Law Enforcement, Intelligence agencies, and the Military Industrial Complex, for purposes of domination, control, community takeover and human trafficking into clandestine human experimentation projects, including lucrative Military, Intelligence, and Medical/University contracts.
Dr. Shibata notes that the purposes of Organized Torture include “discrediting the victim who filed a civil or criminal complaint against a member or an associate of the torture organization” and “discrediting a whistle-blower or a non-consensual human experimentation subject.”
Police usually do not acknowledge these crimes and, although not qualified to diagnose anyone, in fact stigmatize reporting victims as delusional and mentally ill, an illegal “diagnosis” echoed blindly by ill-informed doctors, psychiatrists, and journalists, uneducated in the areas of cutting-edge, militarized neuroscience technologies and the clandestine and covert techniques of sophisticated organized crime. Co-opted corporate media additionally portray reporting victims as delusional as a matter of course, providing collaborative cover for the organized criminal perpetrators of these crimes.
The problem is widespread, but police have refused to enforce the Penal Code to prohibit the ruination and sabotage of lives caused by the deadly psychological and physical battery and torture with “electronic” weapons which accompany the stalking and surveillance by pro-subjugation groups, says Dr. Shibata.
“Electronic Control Weapons” is the term used in Law Enforcement to indicate electrical weapons or conducted-energy devices “from which an electrical current, pulse or beam, wave, or sound wave may be directed to incapacitate temporarily, injure, torture or kill.”
“Electronic Warfare Weapons” as per US Military documents are a military designation of spectrum, neural or acoustic weapons using EMF radiation and sonic technologies, and include classified DOJ “anti-personnel” and “Dual-Use” applications, intending basically to attack and disable humans — as opposed to disabling electronic devices, computers, and infrastructure.
There are laws currently on the books in Massachusetts and Michigan preventing the use of Electronic Weapons by civilians. But such laws are not enforced to prevent the use of such weapons on the bodies of humans — by such coteries as Law Enforcement, Intelligence agencies, or branches of the Military and Air Force, or Federal agencies such as the NGA (National Geospatial Agency) or NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) who use imaging and tracking radar from satellites.
Well, so much for hope… it looks like the Nazis will prevail after all.
‘Targeted Individuals’ Activist Getting Stonewalled In Seeking Anti-‘Organized Torture’ Legislation
It appears that Dr. Shibata is getting stonewalled by the California lawmakers she has approached to introduce the bill. And it is Dr. Shibata’s belief that the very forces she is fighting against, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center intelligence contractors in coordination with local law-enforcement officials, are influential in dissuading these politicians from introducing the bill.
This article by Ramola D explains the genesis of Dr. Shibata’s bill proposal and helps us better understand the attacks that ‘targeted individuals’ are facing:
This proposal was made, Dr. Shibata states, on the basis of complaints to human rights groups from high numbers of residents across California from various cities including San Diego, Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Palo Alto, and others, of “organized covert torture” whereby, in lieu of outright abduction, victims are kept under constant control of the covert torture organizations by organized stalking, sustained surreptitious monitoring, cyberstalking, and stealth physical assault and battery with radiation weaponry such as microwave/radar surveillance weapons. Different sources offer varying estimates, running into hundreds of thousands, of the numbers of organized covert torture victims often labeled “Targeted Individuals” within the USA and around the world.
It may be hard for some to believe that this phenomenon is real, let alone affecting hundreds of thousands, and possibly millions of individuals on the planet. But that is why this is such a diabolical process. It is designed to appear to outsiders as though it is not happening at all, while some of the tactics are not fully hidden from the victims themselves, when the desire is to inflict a sense of helplessness and paranoia upon the victim.
What is beyond doubt, for those who have researched into this matter, is that technology does indeed exist to remotely target individual people with invisible weapons that cause physical pain as well as debilitating mental and auditory stimulation (source).
This form of torture and human experimentation has the most power when the general public does not believe in its existence. This is why the awakening community must stand behind victims and give their stories credence, as I outlined in a previous article ‘Targeted Individuals Need The Awakening Community To Believe Their Stories.’ And this may be one reason why Dr. Shibata is working tirelessly to get this bill proposal introduced in the California legislature, since just the introduction of the bill (let alone the passing of it into law) will bring it into the public domain and give this issue the legitimacy it desperately needs.
However, ‘legitimacy’ is the last thing that the perpetrators of organized covert torture want. This is why Dr. Shibata believes that these perpetrators are playing a direct role in overtly and covertly discouraging California State legislators from introducing ‘The Organized Torture Act.’
In Dr. Shibata’s email to me (which is the source of all the quotes from her in this article), she specifically points to local law enforcement in concert with Fusion Centers as the most visible culprits of ‘Organized Covert Torture’:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center intelligence contractors empower front-line law enforcement…to understand local implications of national intelligence, thus enabling local officials to better protect their communities.
Dr. Shibata believes that these intelligence contractors could “empower” police groups as a front organization to mind-control the California legislature:
The police have very strong lobbying groups at the California state legislature. The Fusion Center intelligence contractors could help police lobbying groups in becoming so “strong” in influencing the California legislature, by deploying the following technique: covertly manipulate those who exert the most influence on the target-legislators, who might introduce the bill to prohibit organized covert torture, in order to safeguard the excessive privileges of the police/intelligence contractors to torture targeted individuals.
And indeed, her experience dealing with legislators bears this out.
Stonewalled By Legislators
In total, Dr. Shibata has asked 9 California legislators to review the bill proposal and introduce it to the legislature. Any bill that amends the Penal Code is required to go through an ‘analysis’ by the Public Safety Committee Counsel. This analysis, according to Dr. Shibata, ‘exerts considerable influence on the voting outcome of the members of the committee.’ The committee majority approval is needed first before the bill is introduced to all members of the legislature for voting. So, although the proposed bill has not yet been introduced, the legislative director of Assembly Member Shirley Weber went ahead and asked the Assembly Public Safety Committee Counsel to issue a provisional analysis of the proposed bill, in order for Dr. Weber to find out the prospects for the proposed bill in the legislature. Dr. Shibata believes that the opinions of this counsel have resulted from the undue influence of police lobby groups that front the intelligence operations behind covert organized torture.
In communication with Dr. Weber’s legislative director, Dr. Shibata was made aware that Weber’s office received the following advice from Assembly Public Safety Committee Deputy Chief Counsel Sandy Uribe:
The acts of organized covert torture and organized stalking, which the proposed bill prohibits, are already proscribed by the current Penal Code. There is no need for an addition law. The incident, where a civilian complained about his inner ears injured by the police’s ongoing act of using an ultrasonic weapon at him, shot and killed a rookie female police officer in Davis, CA (20-minute driving distance from Sacramento) on January 10, 2019, would discourage the legislature from voting favorably on the proposed bill. The location of the incident is so close to the California capitol that this incident would considerably influence the voting results of the proposed bill.
Dr. Weber decided not to introduce the proposed bill upon receiving this advice. Yet, Dr. Shibata finds the advice highly questionable, and refuted it as follows:
Assembly Public Safety Committee Counsel Deputy Chief Uribe’s above advice prejudicially interprets the proposed bill text and the recent police officer’s murder incident in the light that is most protective of the excessive privileges of the police to torture targeted individuals. Please note that the police abuse discretion vested in them and elect not to enforce the existing laws against organized covert torture and organized stalking. The socio-legal context of the proposed legislation parallels that of the anti-domestic violence legislation, because the police abused their discretion vested in them and did not enforce the pre-existing law against battery in domestic relations, prior to the anti-domestic violence legislation. Just as many police officers themselves committed domestic violence at home back then, many police officers commit organized covert torture themselves today, along with the Fusion Center contractors and under the supervision of the FBI, as per Former FBI Special Agent Geral Sosbee’s aforementioned testimony.
The anti-domestic violence legislation established the rule of law in domestic relations and drastically reduced the killings of husbands by the battered wives at home. The proposed bill will establish the rule of law surrounding organized covert torture and thus will substantially prevent the killings of the police officers by the civilian victims of organized cover torture by the police, as exemplified by the aforementioned Davis police shooter, who had a violent criminal record. Indeed, L.A. law enforcement officers fire electronic weapons remotely at prison inmates, which the ACLU describes as “tantamount to torture,” according to CBS News.
Therefore, the recent Davis police officer’s lethal shooting incident only casts light on the urgent need for the rule of law surrounding organized covert torture, instead of discouraging the legislature from voting against the proposed bill.
Another legislator Dr. Shibata asked to introduce the bill was Ed Chau, the chair of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, and a former judge and an engineer, who has successfully authored bills against the technological invasion of privacy and is already aware of one of the most sophisticated technologies used against targeted individuals, “synthetic telepathy,” which is known to have been researched by the University of California at Irvine and funded by the Army (source). The task of preparing an internal report to Chau on the proposed bill was delegated to Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee Consultant/Attorney Nichole Rapier Rocha. In a phone conversation with Rocha, Dr. Shibata found out that Rocha had received unsolicited advice from Sandy Uribe similar to the advice she gave Dr. Weber’s office, which led Dr. Shibata to ask the following question:
Why did super busy Sandy Uribe go out of her way to identify/trace which influential staffer at the legislature was still reviewing the bill proposal for potential recommendation and further to “warn” that influential staffer of the said “problems” of the bill proactively?
While Ed Chau has not yet decided whether to sponsor the bill, the following legislators have already declined: Assembly Member Reginald Jones-Sawyer, Senator Nancy Skinner, Senator Jim Beall, and Senator Chris Holden. Their refusal to take up the challenge, according to Dr. Shibata, is partly “due to their apathetic complicity in leaving thousands of victims, in California alone, continuously and indefinitely exposed to irreversibly maiming torture and slow-kill murder.” But she also has seen telling signs of infiltration within legislators’ committees and the possible influence of the pharmaceutical industry in discouraging these legislators from introducing the bill.
Aside from Assembly Member Ed Chau, those legislators who have yet to make a decision are Senator Steven Bradford and Senator Holly Mitchell. Whether or not the tremendous effort made by Dr. Tomo Shibata to get this bill introduced to the California legislature will come to fruition rests in their hands. Time is short, as the bill introduction deadline is February 22, 2019. If you would like to show your support for Dr. Shibata, please try to let your opinions be known to these three remaining California legislators or go to Dr. Shibata’s GoFundMe Page.
While her proposal to introduce legislation may not be accepted this time around, the time and effort that Dr. Shibata has put into this enterprise has still afforded us the opportunity to see a little more deeply into the mechanisms of control behind organized covert torture and the complicity between politics, law enforcement and intelligence that is needed to keep it in place. Her work is helping to bring the phenomena more into public awareness, and it is through growing awareness and our commitment to uncover the truth that we will one day end these kinds of operations.
