Georgia Code Section 16-5-90: Stalking; psychological evaluation:
(a)(1) A person commits the offense of stalking when he or she follows, places under surveillance, or contacts another person at or about a place or places without the consent of the other person for the purpose of harassing and intimidating the other person. For the purpose of this article, the terms "computer" and "computer network" shall have the same meanings as set out in Code Section 16-9-92; the term "contact" shall mean any communication including without being limited to communication in person, by telephone, by mail, by broadcast, by computer, by computer network, or by any other electronic device; and the place or places that contact by telephone, mail, broadcast, computer, computer network, or any other electronic device is deemed to occur shall be the place or places where such communication is received. For the purpose of this article, the term "place or places" shall include any public or private property occupied by the victim other than the residence of the defendant. For the purposes of this article, the term "harassing and intimidating" means a knowing and willful course of conduct directed at a specific person which causes emotional distress by placing such person in reasonable fear for such person's safety or the safety of a member of his or her immediate family, by establishing a pattern of harassing and intimidating behavior, and which serves no legitimate purpose. This Code section shall not be construed to require that an overt threat of death or bodily injury has been made.
Stalking is a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly, unwantedly, and disruptively breaks into the life-world of the victim, with whom he has no relationship (or no longer has). The separated acts that make up the intrusion may not always by themselves cause the mental abuse, but do taken together (cumulative effect).
Internet technology has enabled online groups of anonymous people like this to self-organize to target individuals with online defamation, threats of violence, and technology-based attacks.
In this case, there seem to be some "professional" stalkers at work. According to online posts, the American Mothers Political Party (a hate group) teamed up several years ago with a group of "Joeys" who operate a hate website at http://joeyisalittlekid.blogspot.com.
They have published lies, doctored photographs, threatened violence, posted sensitive personal information, e-mailed damaging statements to many people, and are manipulating search engines to make damaging material about me more prominent.
I fear for my safety and the safety of my family. I am in fear of bodily harm to myself and my family, violent injury to my property, and more.
On February 25, 2013, I filed my second criminal complaint. This named at least 37 people and entities. Included were online aliases such as Ginger Snap, Petunia Pigg, and others.
My complaint is for stalking, harassment, harassing communications, threats (including death threats or veiled threats of bodily harm by four people).
There is absolutely no question that these people have followed me online and contacted me online for the purpose of harassing and intimidating me. They have attempted to terrify, threaten, harass, annoy, and offend me with lewd and profane language, lewd and lascivious acts, threats to inflict physical harm, and more.
Virtually all of the stalking and harassment has been cyberstalking,the use of the Internet and email to stalk and harass me and those acquainted with me.
The stalking includes the making of false accusations and false statements. These include that I am a pedophile, a pedophile lover, anti-gay, bigoted, a tax evader, a criminal operating a scam, and much more.
The stalking includes monitoring, as the stalkers claim to be tracking my Internet activity. Some stalkers participate in my online radio talk shows to monitor and/or to disrupt the calls and the online chat. The monitoring includes repeated online posts of libelous, threatening, harassing statements.
I fear identity theft as they say they have my social security number.
Many of these perpetrators spend a lot of time gathering information that may be used to harass.
The stalking is apparently motivated by a desire to control me and interfere with my activities. Their sole goal is to damage me and my charitable efforts.
The initial cyberstalker was a person who I do not believe I know. He was joined by people I do know and many more who I wouldn't know from Adam. These stalkers have solicited involvement of other people online who do not even know me.
The libel and slander is truly unbelievable. These stalkers invent one false claim after another. People who I don’t know make statements in writing that have no truth whatsoever and can be easily proven to be false. It’s like they feel they can say anything and get away with it.
The stalkers have repeatedly violated my privacy rights and copyright by using photos and videos of me that they have no legal right to use. Photographs of me have been doctored. Absolutely sickening videos have been produced about me. The worst is one that has one scene after another of feces – big piles of shit in various settings – and it’s all attacking me.
They have created fake blogs about me containing defamatory content.
Internet technology has enabled online groups of anonymous people like this to self-organize to target individuals with online defamation, threats of violence, and technology-based attacks. They have published lies, doctored photographs, threatened violence, posted sensitive personal information, e-mailed damaging statements to many people, and are manipulating search engines to make damaging material about me more prominent.
It would take a team of people full-time to capture all the stalking and slander. I have 882 megabytes of evidence, but it is a fraction of what is out there.
Any reasonable person in possession of this information would regard it as sufficient to cause another reasonable person distress.
I have massive civil charges that I intend to bring against these folks.
I say to all of the people cybertsalking me, slandering me, libeling me, defaming me, etc., CEASE AND DESIST. I consider your actions to be both criminal and civil violations, and I intend to file criminal charges against each of you. I also plan to file a civil action against each of you. And you will be featured in one of two new movies, Slanderella or Slanderfella.
NOTHING LIKE A DAY WITH THE POLICE, SHERIFFS, AND COURTHOUSE FOLKS.
The highlight of my day was walking into the Temporary Protective Order Office in Marietta, Georgia. A woman looked at me from behind her desk and said, "you look familiar." I looked at her with a puzzled look I would imagine, and then she said, aren't you Lawless America?" Her officemate, Kylee Elliott, also knew Lawless America. I thought that was pretty cool. I have had people recognize me in the strangest of places.
It's always frustrating when you have to spend time in those kinds of places. Lots of to-ing and fro-ing. I did manage to file a criminal complaint against 37 people/entities for stalking and related harassment and threats. I now have a case number and know what I need to do where these folks live. The police requested a DVD of my evidence, hate videos, downloads of hate websites, etc., and I will deliver that to them tomorrow.
Hope springs eternal that law enforcement will do something, but one young officer talked about a call he had just been on where someone defecated in someone's driveway. He seemed more interested in that than the hate video about me with mountains of feces. These guys almost always at least start with an arrogant attitude. I had to call him on it, and he finally took that face off and was a very genuine, likable person underneath.
Now it's over to the FBI. That's always SO PRODUCTIVE. :-(
What if you are Cyberstalked?
Ask the person or persons to cease and desist. This is especially important if libel and slander is involved. Check your state statutes as asking folks to stop and issue a retraction may be required in your state.
If you are receieving unsolicited emails, reply with CEASE AND DESIST notice. As soon as it is violated, reply with another CEASE AND DESIST inside an email that you send to the person's email service provider. It is against the policies of email service providers to allow unsolicited emails. You should check the email service provider's website for their procedures for abuse complaints. You may be able to cause the stalker to lose their email account.
If you are stalked on Facebook, file reports.
And keep records of everything. If you don't have a program to make screenshots easy, get one. There are free programs available online. We use one that was purchased called Snagit. I keep it minimized, and when I need a screenshot, I click on the icon, and then I capture the page with a few clicks.
Move quickly as stalkers will often realize they stepped over a line, and they will delete their posts.
If you are being stalked, libeled, slandered, and harassed by websites, get a service that will regularly copy and download the entire site. We use www.cloudpreservation.com. You can also accomplish a lot of this yourself using Adobe Acrobat.
Know how to capture the IP addresses of people who stalk you by email. With Outlook 10, I open an email, click File > Properties, and a window opens that shows the email header. In that data is a spot that identifies the originating IP.
To block people from following your Internet activity, a program such as HideMyAss works great. That's what we use.
