Gangstalking and Predictive Policing: A Perfect Pair

Gangstalking and Predictive Policing: A Perfect Pair

At the same meeting mentioned in the last post, my husband spoke with Santa Cruz Mayor, Don Lane. My husband emailed him several months back, about our harassment and the lackluster response from local police.

We have had some success in getting a police response by contacting members of the Santa Cruz City Council. They responded quickly, pressuring the police to “take care of the problem.” Apparently the city council has the ear of the Chief, because their intervention generates a proactive effort on the part of the PD.

If you are being gangstalked and your police department has been less than helpful, you might consider going to your city council We were just reaching out for help, and didn’t realize that this is akin to going over the heads of the PD. They really don’t appreciate it. It is probably better to work with them, if you can. Contacting the the PD and using the cc (carbon copy) for the city council is more respectful. This makes the City Council aware of the problem, and gives the police an opportunity to act without prodding. I would try that first….but truthfully, my husband doesn’t usually ask for my opinion before dashing off the occasional pointed or inflammatory email. There are, after all, two people being gangstalked in our house. Keep in mind, the dynamic between city government and the police department may be different where you live.

Because of the City Council’s intervention, we were given an opportunity to present our case to the Deputy Chief, who was nice enough, but probably didn’t bother to read the detailed incident report I gave him. (I say this, because a week later he appeared to not be familiar with any of the details, when I spoke to him on the phone.)

What the deputy chief actually did, was give me the BIG BRUSHOFF (details to be covered in another post.) I didn’t even realize it at the time, because the man is very good at his job. In hindsight, I’m actually amazed at how smoothly he went about not helping me at all. His job was never about helping me. The job of a Deputy Chief is to help his Chief. In this case, the Chief was prodded by the city council to “take care of the problem”. I’m a little slow, on the whole chain of command thing… but now that my myopia has been corrected, by the virtue of hindsight… I realize that “MY problem” was not “THE problem” for the Chief. My husband and I were “THE problem”. I may not have considered the Deputy Chief to be very helpful, but i am sure the Chief is very pleased with him. If the chief paid his salary, instead of the taxpayers, he deserves a raise.

Anyone who is familiar with gangstalking, already knows Santa Cruz PD has admitted (apparently the first PD in the country, to openly do so) that gangstalking exists, and that it is a growing problem. The original story aired on our local TV News station, KION, where a SCPD spokesperson called it “bullying on steroids.” The Deputy Chief told me, he was not surprised by the gangstalking activity that we have experienced, remarking that he had “seen it all before.”

Judging by the thousands (from all over the world) of references to the SCPD’s public admission, regarding gangstalking, there is a general perception that SCPD is an enlightened and progressive police department. Logic dictates that a department that identifies a particular crime as a “growing problem” should be working on solutions to nip it in the bud. After all, you always hear that the first step, is admitting there is a problem. Logic also dictates that advance knowledge of gangstalking should put an end to the credibility hurdle victims have had to overcome. Right? Uh….not so fast.

There appears to be a serious breakdown in communication between the people who are in charge, and the officers who work for them, patrolling the streets. Every single SCPD officer who has responded to our calls, has told us they have never heard of gangstalking, or anything like it. (Maybe they watch KSBW instead of KION. )The moment we tell them we are being harassed by complete strangers, and that we do not know WHY they are doing this, we are treated to barely disguised skepticism.

You have to wonder why the Patrol Officers are unaware of it, when their bosses have gone on record acknowledging that it is a growing problem, Is it a matter of scarce resources, and low priority? I have NO idea. But this cavalier attitude is exactly what fuels the belief, by many victims, that law enforcement is part of the problem. Unlike some victims, I don’t think law enforcement or the U.S. government, is officially complicit in gangstalking. But, CLEARLY …they don’t seem to be part of the solution! It is extremely upsetting to be treated like you are imagining intense harassment, because the bosses haven’t bothered to tell the responding officers that this crime is a real crime with real victims.

That said, I do want to say that there is one Lieutenant on the SCPD, who has always treated us respectfully, never expressed skepticism at our reports, and really tried to help. My guess is that there is only so much one man can do, in a culture where those in charge have refused to do even the bare minimum, to stop these criminals.

When the patrol officers, who interact with the public, say they have never heard of Gangstalking (a crime that is PURPOSELY executed in a way that invites skepticism) upper management (sorry for the civilian term) really has failed to do the bare minimum. They have failed to share their admitted knowledge of the crime, with those in the best position to observe it, and catch the perpetrators in the act. Nobody is going to put any effort into solving a crime they don’t think is real.

By not even doing the bare minimum, the SCPD has further victimized us, by fostering an environment which encourages patrol officers (through ignorance) to disregard our pleas for help, view our accounts with barely concealed skepticism, and allow organized criminals to operate unchecked.

The first step in reconciling this problem is for the entire department to know what has already been shared with the public: Gangstalking is a crime that is happening in our area; it is growing, because technology has made it easier than ever.

When everybody is on the same page, and gangstalking is recognized for the serious crime that it is, the police department should make a commitment to eradicating it, or at least, treat it like other serious crimes.

Being the first PD in the country to take a stand against Gangstalking , is about as progressive as it gets. And how about this for the predictive policing agenda: I tell you where I’m going….and you predict the place and time where police will find gangstalkers harassing and violating the civil rights of an innocent citizen of Santa Cruz, as well as inconveniencing every other person in the vicinity (which can’t be avoided, and is of absolutely no concern to gangstalkers.)

There are rough estimates that put the number of gangstalking victims in the U.S at around 500.000. That is half a millon people who desperately need a progressive police department be the first to take up our fight against gangstalking. Why not the Santa Cruz Police Department?

Regardless of the position SCPD ultimately takes on gangstalking, there should be protocols in place for handling reports made by victims of it. “Act skeptical”, should be shelved, despite its long reign of popularity. It really is unhelpful in every imaginable way. It is a know the police encounter a lot of liars. I really wish the truth wasn’t so hard to believe. But thats how gangstalking works. That’s why it works. Skepticism is only possible, if you choose ignorance (which requires no effort). In my opinion, gangstalking has no informed skeptics.

In predictive policing, isn’t the goal to prevent a crime altogether or catch perpetrators in the act of commiting crimes? Drug deals take place out in the open every day, right under the noses of an ubsuspecting public. Should Gangstalking take place right under the noses of an unsuspecting patrol division? Police see crimes that the ordinary citizens routinely overlook. Training is what makes the difference.

Training officers to spot and recognize gangstalking, while its happening would not take a big time committment. Gangstalking is a smart crime that frequently takes place in public. It is subtle and invisible to the untrained eye. Officers study human beings, they can be trained easier than most people to detect the subtle signs of gangstalking activity. I can guarantee that the first time an officer spots it and recognizes it for what it is, it will be like ringing a bell– it can’t be un-rung.


In the next post, I will tell you how the Gangstalkers ran a con on a Santa Cruz Police Officer, responding to a traffic accident. They absolutely influenced his investigation. The story should illustrate the importance” of educating the local police department on how to spot Gangstalkers and catch them in the act of breaking the law. They aren’t just hurting us. They are a menace to the entire community; and currently Santa Cruz is hosting a large active community of Gangstalkers. Anyone who wants to see gangstalking isn’t going to lack opportunities. I am going to do what I can in this blog to educate people on how to observe gangstalking in action. And how easy it is to overlook it.
