Several of the police departments belonging to the group have recently been caught in illegal wiretapping, burglary, and spying on the private lives of ordinary citizens.

The LEIU is, in effect, a huge, private domestic-intelligence agency.” article published in September 1979 under the headline “FBI Admits Spreading Lies About Jean Seberg” was the lead story on the paper’s front page.

Seberg – a successful film actress and a political activist – had died the month before in Paris from an apparent suicide.

“Gang Stalking” is, very likely, a disinformation term created by U. Such operations have nothing to do with criminal gangs.

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.

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. spying, George O’Toole wrote about a connection between the CIA and the aforementioned LEIUs.

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).

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. This is so despite reports – such as those which follow – from sources across the political spectrum.

Published articles and anecdotal reports have appeared with increasing frequency – especially in the past decade or so – alleging that something comparable to the FBI’s COINTELPRO operations is still happening, although it naturally involves more advanced surveillance technology.

As such, the harassment is illegal – even when done by the government. 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.

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.” A whole set of psychological operations are perpetrated against targeted individuals.
