“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
In 2005, Dutch authorities admitted to using tactics designed to “disturb” people-persoonsgericht verstoren-who they felt were “terrorists” and even common criminals. They acknowledged to the New York Times in 2005 that they actively”disrupted” individuals who they could not legally prosecute.
When researching organized gang stalking, one must look at the evidence from the past-those news articles, and web archives that were not scrubbed.Any serious academic study would reveal this fact, but Mike McPhate, writing in the same newspaper in 2016 could not find evidence of the ‘phenomenon’ known as gang stalking.
Here’s one piece of evidence, from the archives of the NYT:
“Under investigative procedures recently put in place, investigators and the police have begun to do what they call ”disturbing” people to deter them from joining radical groups. It is a kind of harassment that involves following people at close range, calling them by telephone, parking police cars in front of their homes and approaching them on the street to inform them that they are being watched.
But civil liberties can still trump security in the Netherlands. Early in December, a young Muslim mother of three from Amsterdam identified only as Jolanda W. won a ruling against police officers she had accused of stalking her.
”One cannot rule out that these measures put important psychological pressure upon the person harassed,” Judge A. J. Beukenhorst said in his ruling. ”Islamic belief,” he added, ”cannot by itself be the reason for harassment.”
