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.
S.: the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, U. military counterintelligence agencies, state and local Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs), and security contractors.
She had also apparently been blacklisted and terrorized by the FBI using tactics associated with counterintelligence operations intended to neutralize political dissidents, such as “black bag jobs,” illegal wiretapping, and overt stalking. This is not to say that illegal spying was not taking place; it just mostly stayed out of the media. In Los Angeles, police corruption was much more than unmarked envelopes stuffed with cash. For decades LAPD engaged in massive illegal spying and lied about it.
During the 1980s and 90s a trend toward militarization began in American police departments. Its spying targets included politicians, movie stars, professional athletes, news reporters and anyone wielding power or those of interest to Daryl Gates.” An apparent case of organized stalking by federal agents which did appear in the news during that era was the high-profile case of a cancer research scientist named Arnold Lockshin, who fled with his family to the Soviet Union in 1986 and was granted political asylum.
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. 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. 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. 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. 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).
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.
