The Neighbors Are Watching Via Surveillance Video

from the big-brother-is-next-door dept

With all the stories about governments or corporations becoming "Big Brother", it turns out that Big Brother might just be next door. In the latest kidnapping case in California, police say that one of the best initial leads they got came from the surveillance camera of the next door neighbor. Clearly, it's a good thing that such a camera helped lead to information that let the police track down the kidnapper. However, it certainly does raise some privacy issues. Yes, it's nice to have a world where people are unlikely to commit a crime since they're always being watched, but do we really want a world where no one has any real privacy?

    Privacy?

    What "privacy"? The camera is shooting a public street, anything it saw could be seen by anyone walking by, driving by or standing on the street corner. There is no presumption of privacy on a public street!

    This is just typical Mike blather

    Dave, don't try to find any logic in this (or any) of Mike's arguments - you won't find any. He usually tends to argue against technological advancements that make laws easier to enforce or that steer people towards the straight & narrow. Heck, the guy is one of the biggest apologists for music thieves that you'll ever find, so its hardly surprising that he's against security cameras, even when used in the context of public spaces.

    (a) I'm not against security cameras. I've written about this topic a number of times before, where I've suggested that there's nothing wrong with them. In this case, I was just bringing it up as a discussion point. What rights do you have if your neighbor's security camera is watching over your private property?

    (b) I do not apologize for music "thieves" at all. I (and I've pointed this out plenty of times) am just pointing out the changes in the music marketplace that those in the industry might want to think about. I'm no fan of people who share music (I don't do it). I just think, as a business, the music industry needs to learn how to deal with it.

    Is it that hard to see the distinction?

    (c) If you don't like my logic, there's a very simple solution: don't come to this site.

    "Yes, it's nice to have a world where people are unlikely to commit a crime since they're always being watched, but do we really want a world where no one has any real privacy? "

    lemme see, where can we find out how people behave when they are in an anonymous consequence free environment? The net!

    See the proliferation of trolls, spammers, and just plain morons that bring the signal to noise ratio to such desperate levels that discourse is becoming the exception rather than the norm on USENET, IRC, and many many message boards...

    While I want my privacy, I can't help but feel that if we WERE under the camera things would be a lot safer...I'm still not sure I want to give up my privacy for this mind you and I'm not arguing for that...I'm just pointing out what people end up becoming when they KNOW they can get away with it....

    I'm concerned about this "Anonymous Coward" poster. Everyone knows that anonymity is the first refuge of those with something to hide. How can we steer him towards the "straight and narrow" if we don't know who he is, or what he's doing right now? Citizens, beware!

    stalking neighbors

    The neighbors next door have several cameras (with spot lights)watching our home. One of the cameras only monitors our backyard that has a 7ft. privacy fence. We built the fence to re-establish some privacy. They simple raised the camera. We've bought blinds. They continue to watch. Where does the law support our privacy on our not so "private" property?

    Re: stalking neighbors

    I have this same issue at my residence. There is a camera facing the window to my room. I have told the neighbor to move the camera in the other direction. I was told that the camera is broken, but is clearly evident that is working just fine. Clearly this is a violation of my privacy. This is in a suburb location with house 10 feet apart. The neighbor is not watching the street, it's pointed straight into my window.

This has been going on for 2 years now, I can't get proof bercause they know my every move and I don't want the law to think we are crazy, how can I stop this? Can I buy equipment that will jam their equipment and use something that records their activities. The probes they use can inflict itching and touching sensations keeping us up at night also make noises to confuse us. Our cats are being scared into shitting all over the house. This is a federal offense I have read how can i make it stick? I need help!

    neighbors with survillence camera on my hous

Is there not a law against neighbors with video cameras mounted in such a way to single you out and watch your every move, i'm trying to find a law otr something that would prevent this. can someone please help me.
    desperate....and getting a restraining order on these people in the meantime for other things.

    I'm fed up - are you?

    My neighbor has 4 surveillance cams pointed over my 7 ft. privacy fence. My entire backyard is privacy fence. No city ordinance against the cams. Two granddaughters 3 & 5 yr. can't even play in their play house or swim now.

    This has got to stop and citizens must make it happen. Security is one thing but when it is mounted on a post or in a tree and pointed over the fence, only an idiot would support the contention that it's ok. Whene the boiling point is reached - people get hurt! If you have a good law that covers this in your area - send me info at stiritup05@lycos.com.

    Speaking of idiots, don't even go "there" with the argument about "if you aren't doing anything wrong, what does it matter" When I go to the bathroom I'm not doing anything wrong but I don't want people watching. People have an expectation of privacy when their entire yard is enclosed by privacy fence.

    If you are fed up with it, too, send your opinion to the above email. I am going to prepare something for our city council. Technology seems to have outstripped the law.

    Neighbor stalking

    I have two neighbors who are stalking me. One has a home security camera trained on me when I walk our common easement. The other neighbor drives by with his video camera, tracking all of my moves. He has admitted taking over 50 videos of me and my family so far. The police will do nothing about it because the stalkers maintain they have to keep track of me to prevent problems in the neighborhood because I have a home based business. It is crazy and very upsetting.

    I am going through the very same thing, so far the thing that I found out that really pisses them off the most is mounting my cameras and pointing them at their homes, and if your camera's have audio then wire a amp and speaker out side and turn it up loud so they can hear what assholes they are

    My neighbors are spying on us

    I am not some jerk, but my neighbor kept blaming my children and household members for causing damage to other peoples property. Also I have a situation with the same neighbor is building a addition in his back yard. He has people working back that that are from the local hardware store, day workers and not professional. We have a zero lot line, meaning there in no setback from the home to the property dividing fence. Feed up, I put up cameras. In the front to insure that he could not longer blame my household for damages, in the back to I can insure one of the workers does not hop the wall into my property. Although my neighbor is suppose to be home at all times that work on the addition is taking place, he leaves for hours at a time. I am a single female with 2 kids and could no longer take the bullying. There are 2 sides to every story. Although there is no law stating I can not have those cameras up, sure enough he called the local police and they paid me a visit. The 1st set of cops advised it was a "invasion of privacy". They were not happy when I requested to speak to someone above him. The Sargent came and he was very "gray" about it. I have found nothingin the CA penal code stating I have done anything wrong. If anyone knows, please advise.

    Re: This is just typical Mike blather

    It may be blather to you. To take it from one who has experienced being stalked by my neighbors, rapped -- repeatedly -- and no one believing me. Gassed with protane and arms looking like a junkie when I don't do drugs, hair with bald spots where it was shaved (all these things miraculously appearing upon waking. Neighbors constantly outside watching your every move and being followed around. Sounds crazy, right. That is what keeps the knowledge of this phenomena going so boldly.

    My house was vandalized to $30,000, even the contractors who came to repair turned around and destroyed my home with water damage yet still expecting me to pay until eventually I had to simply walk away from my home.

    I worked at home and my computer system was hacked. Your own computer with DSL access allows for voice and video surveillance.

    The FBI and local police simply wrote me off as crazy even when I had semen and went to the hospital for a rape kit performed. I was offered a week in their psych ward instead of a rape kit performed.

    The web is full of tells of neighborhood stalkings. I was one of those who did not believe it either until it happened to me.

    Stalked, raped and turned away by the FBI and loca

    I contacted the local police for about a year, then I contacted the FBI who sent me back to the local police. I believe this is government authorized because no matter what I do, at a government job or otherwise, I am let go within a few months with lies and sabatoge at work. I have a 145 page documented case of sexual and hostile harrassment that the documentation shows is so obvious anyone would not believe could be contested, yet, nothing was done... Technology is easily obtained, that's true, but it does not explain why the police and the government does nothing to even address the issue. This is happening throughout the USA and I've recently heard on a Wisconsin radio station that "Individual Terrorism" is on the rise.

    This all began in 2001 when I contacted the FBI regarding see ADA (the man who supposedly blew up the Trade Center Towers). This man was in Tomball, Texas in 2001 and the FBI did nothing. In 2003, the KKK had a recruitment meeting in this small suburban town and nothing was done about it (which included police officers in sheets I later saw riding around the neighborhood).

    Since 2003, all those things annotated in my first message was done, and no one cared. What I learned from this experience is "THAT is what you get for getting involved.... even when asked to."

    Malicious act of systematic harassment and intimid

    10/6/04 - current I came home from work to find a closed circuit video camera aimed at our property. It turns on when we pull in the driveway or are anywhere in our front yard. A red light flashes and it moves back and fourth over our property, apparently recording our activity.
    The camera was initially aimed so it was viewing part of our house where our bedroom windows are located. I am not sure if this motion sensitive camera also picks up sound. I have observed James Fisher re-aiming it several times. It was re-aimed by him to video tape my wife, son and myself as we pull in the driveway, enjoy our front yard, exit or enter our front or back door. It stayed in this setting until 08/01/05 where it’s now re-aimed by James Fisher at the street. The camera was aimed at us for almost a year. Its existence causes us extreme emotional distress. With a flick of his wrist the camera can be re-aimed directly at us again.

    He has a second closed circuit video camera in his front kitchen window aimed at our property. Our lawyer instructed us to film these cameras and take pictures. The camera in his kitchen is now aimed at the sidewalk in front of his house. It is aimed so it is able to record and video tape anyone’s wife, children or little kids or other family members in the neighborhood who happen to be walking down a public sidewalk. This is of course without their knowledge or consent.

    Additional Closed Circuit Video equipment discovered on the back of his property

    9/7/05- current In the Fishers sliding glass doors out the lower level, there is a third closed circuit camera aimed towards the back of our properties. Which is where our outside Hot Tub is and used by my wife and son with the expectation of privacy. (How many more cameras is he using that are still watching us?). I have seen him on numerous occasions aiming, checking and re-aiming the cameras. Who knows what he does with these tapes of minors and young ladies in the privacy of his basement. They could also be posted onto the internet putting my family in extreme jeopardy from sexual internet predators.

    Please help, the police, laywers and local goverment officials along with the comunities civic association seem to think there is nothing wrong wtih this. But as I tell them if it was happening to them they would think differently. Pleas help. I need immediate assistance and guidance.

    Thank You,

    Steve Nunes

They say things like *quite evesdropping* and my 4 year old son says evesdropping all the time, my mom has even heard them in my house. They have the neighbors harrassing me all the damn time and they are making up horrible lies about me like I"m a child abuser, which trust me I'am not, I pride myself in taking care of my children. I don't know what to do either, I"m 6mths pregant and so far they have been stalking and harrassing me for an entire year, and they know I'm pregnant. I almost lost my baby a few months ago because of these people.

    The Rage, Jun 23rd, 2007 @ 9:51am

    Re: Re: Malicious act of systematic harassment and

    Let me give you a point of view from one (myself) who was advised TO install security cameras/videotape. I moved to a sleepy unicoporated community in upstate South Carolina from a Columbia neighborhood that was wracked with vice and violence about three years ago. For the first year, things were tough financially, but relatively peaceful. I had been warned that the neighbors on one side of me had an abusive father and on the other side, was quite frankly, a pair of weirdos (with a history of drug use and abuse).

    Video security cameras were installed to monitor my porch and my backyard after I was called to 1)Witness against the abusive father/mother in a case of extreme animal neglect.(An injured dog was left outside IN the heat for four days with the flesh ripped off one rear leg..It eventually crawled onto my porch on its own..These people have LOT's of money btw!) I was forced to get involved and due to threats of physical violence, continued harrassment, and the cops doing nothing, I found the cameras did the trick. Finally, DSS took notice, because as you know, those who would abuse/neglect innocent animals do the same to people. My cameras audio capabilities, although the lenses are pointed at my yard, have enough sensitivity to "record" any outbursts by this father OR mother and DSS encouraged me to record INCIDENTS (notice not all the time). In addition to this, some other neighbors, concerned for this familie's children as well as their own, FINALLY found the courage to start reporting to DSS and the cops. Again, these were NOT "Get your A** in the house Yungin'" stuff but violent outburts toward children and pet by a former football player. IN fact, one pair of Highway Patrolmen, one of who's grandparents live nearby, told me they'd WELCOME a "call".
    The cameras being "ready" to record, have been, in my belief, the catalyst for change. The outbursts, atleast outside have stopped. The boy's coach got involved, and being a big man himself, read "DAD" the riot act I'm told.
    All of this being taken into consideration, the 50 bucks I spent for a simple "wired" video system to WATCH for intrusion against me, my property,and my pets has worked!

    NOW, unfortunately, the weirdo druggie neighbors are harrassing/stalking me because, well, that's what they apparently do to people who they just decide they don't like. It's gotten pretty serious of late, with me not having lights thrown on me when I walk my dogs in my own backyard at night, to being tailgated by his large truck on the public roads. I've filed a "stay away" (from property) order with the local Sherrif's dept. I have incident reports of having been cussed out in my own front yard for simply raising the hood of my car at 9am in the morning to adjust the idle (It's a diesel Mercedes, not that noisy) YET I've never called on these people when they party all night. (That's changing). I have called on the husband jumping in an out behind bushs with a pellet gun at 3:30am while he shot at passing animals. (He's also shot into a neighbor's yard at their cat, the shot richocheting(sp) and hitting their young daughter. The redneck duffuss father of that child just wanted to fight. "Don't believe in callin' no law" It wouldn't have been that with MY kid I'm telling you!
    Reports of the guy having a gun (he's a fellon) and shooting between houses at dogs with a 22 rifle fleeing his yard (killing one ole lady's lifelong pet who accidentally got out..The dog killed wasn't in his yard at the time) The neighbors say they call the cops, but nothing is ever done. I found that the deputies to indeed be negligently lax BUT that didn't and won't stop me...When the husband started to follow me around, right on my bumper, I filed incident reports. County didn't take them seriously, but a small town nearby did. I called SC Law Enforecement and the ATF. BOTH have taken it seriously. I now have enough evidence via calls and written incident reports to atleast file a request for a restraining order. AND yes, I'm adding some more cheapo cameras to the other side of my house. Not pointed at this guy, but the city street in front of my house, and in strategic locations around MY yard, in case I need proof if one of my dogs is hurt or killed (OR these duffuses think it's all a joke and trespass for the helluva' it).

    Oh yea, a call to the local authorities saying if this guy starts shooting at anything between the houses real or imaginary, will be returned in "Self Defense" FINALLYn has the cops doing THEIR job of getting these public menances out of everyone's lives and OFF our streets.

    Video evidence is all one needs. Sorry about the long stories folks BUT there is a right and a WRONG way to do surveillance. In the case of the cameras pointed at YOU, "illegal surveillance" is the key word in other words, Video Peeping Tom.

    neighbors invading privacy

    I live in an aparment building and I do belive that my privacy as well as others are being invaded. I am followed as I go to the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living room, I can hear them above me as I go in and out of my apartment. They constanly harrass and taunt me in my own apartment. I have mentioned this to the landlord and she has done nothing. I belives she knows too. This has kept me having anxiety attacks and looking for another place. I would love advice on what to do. I am trying to find another place soon , even if its at a shelter just to leave this place.

    Re: I'm fed up - are you?

    Dave,
    Like you, I am fed up too. My neighbors (if you can call them that) have surveillance cameras mounted on every side of their house, and those are the ones that we can see! They are double income, no kids in a planned community full of young families on 1/4 - 1/3 acre lots. While I have no solid proof, I also suspect that they have video AND audio capability. I agree that security is one thing, but when their cameras cross boundary lines I feel that it is another matter. We've had a long standing feud going with these people over our two dogs (long story, but suffice to say that I tried every means necessary (short of civil suit) to stop them from harassing us and our dogs. Thankfully, that harassment has stopped as best we can tell. Now there's still the issue of the video cameras monitoring our every move while we are just living our lives and going about our daily routines. Like the other postings I've read, the cameras are aimed across the street, affecting three neighbors; they are mounted on either side of their house affecting our house and the neighbor on the other side. We all have young children and it is very upsetting that this is even happening at all. I guess you could say that they are equal opportunity voyeurs. Well, almost. They have two obvious cameras mounted and facing toward our property. In addition, they have two very small, wireless cameras facing our house. That's four cameras just on us. These cameras potentially cover our front side yard, our back yard, and our deck. I'm fairly certain that I witnessed myself and my daughter and her friend (age 9) in my own driveway as early as yesterday evening. I had been home for less than 30 minutes. How did I witness this? You see, they have the monitoring TV located in an upstairs bedroom where they freely leave the blinds open. Although the visual was from a short distance, there were other telling tale signs that this is what happened. Again, like other positings, this sounds completely paranoid and crazy, but not so. I am definitely interested in finding out if there are any laws covering this type of surveillance. At a minimum, I would think that this not only is an invasion of privacy, but an infringement of our Fourth Amendment rights. I am on board with any movement or consortium to prevent this kind of harassment, invasion of privacy, and emotional torment.
    P.S. While I like and get along with all the other neighbors who are also affected by this, they remain apathetic to the whole situation.

    Re: stalking neighbors

    I have a similar situation, of a neighbor spying on us with 4 wireless cameras trained on our yard. Today, I plugged up an old baby monitor to my tv and before hooking up cameras, guess what I saw? Every view from each camera THEY have. Now, I can see what they're looking at! I'm tempted to put my cameras on their yard and when they watch their own monitor, they'd see THEIR yard, but not know where the pic is coming from...or I might just aim it right back into one of their cameras, but for now, I'm just going to watch my yard via their cameras. (Perhaps I should thank them, as I no longer have to mount cameras!)

    neighbor continues harassment aft 7 years with las

    It is amazing how much people get away with. Just 15 minutes ago my neighbor (borders my 2.5 acres) had his light on my house, sometimes he wakes me up in the middle of the night or as he has done in the past harasses me with it while I'm outside on my property. He has also taken to harassing a female neighbor who was a witness in one of my hearings. It takes the police 45 minutes to answer any calls here and no one takes it seriously. This is nothing compared to what he has done in the past. Recently I picked up a pair of what I believe are his eyeglasses on my property. He has trespassed numerous times also has been cited for vandalism. I'm a single female property owner. He has also had hearings regarding his behavior at work. The most frustrating part of this is that my female neighbor is afraid and doesn't want to call--she calls me now. After documenting and calling police and hearings he still continues. I stopped calling the police for the last year.

    "illegal surveillance"

    Can't you just get a laser pointer and point it at the camera?

    Or on the motion activated cameras, put a motorized device in its field of vision to keep triggering the sensor?

    I starting searching about rights and privacy because I constantly find food objects in my pool (funny I know) and I've had enough. I want to have video recording to catch these people but not at the expense of invasion of others personal privacy. What a dilemma.

    What have you done about camera?. My neighbor installed a camera late last year which was fixed on her property entrance only. The angle has now been changed to view our private road, and property over which she has an easement for ingress, egress only. I hate the idea of being viewed on my own property when I am coming and going. I don't like cameras at all.

    Stalking Neighbor

    I have recently found that my neighbor downstairs is stalking me and has setup infra red cameras in my house and even has them outside on the property which he has not posted saying that there is serveilance - this guy is a creep and he sits home all day and does nothing , this guy is also into other men and whats worse is my wife is in on this also because she knows where the cameras are in exchange for letting this creep see in our house. I have called the police but they won't do anything - this has me so furious I can't even go to work or have a normal life and am considering a divorce with a very long travel distance. I also think my car and my phone is being tracked , I mean if someone is going to pry into your life - why only go half way especially if you're already vulnerable. I suspect my wife of communicating with this guy but she denies any of it. Makes me think why she took my hand in marriage.

    Big Brother IS next door, in Mapleton, ND

    Watch out Meth cookers, law enforcement HAS MOved INTO SMALL TOWN, USA to keep look-out for the manufacturers of methamophetamines. After ordering the diet drug "phentermine" for 10 years, I, too, have been under the watchful eye of big brother and wonder why they've not arrested me for this. Most of the pharmacies I've ordered from online eventually have been closed (or reopened under another name) however, after writing the ND Attorney General and finding out that it's against the STATE AND FEDERAL law to order these on the internet, I've decided I'd rather be fat and lay around then sit in jail. Funniest thing of all, when I found three marijuana plants growing in different places in my yard, and my husband is still convicned that it was a "birdie" that dropped the three seeds and they began to grow. I pulled them and mowed over them and threw them in the trash. Good luck meth makers! watch out, you may be under the watchful eye of law enforcement.

    Small Potatoes

    i know this may seem like small potatoes, but we have a neighbor who watches us constantly, and does a phone tree around our community to tell people what we have been up to. We have a truck parked in teh community parking lot and the neighbors don't think it should be there, so they have started putting old leaves and branches in teh back and putting stones in front of and behind the tires to see if we move the truck daily. It's really unnerving to think she is watching us so closely she can tell the neighbors what time we turn out the lights, and if we were up during the night. Are there any laws against this. I know it is small potatoes compared to have people videotaping our home, but I am just looking for advise.

    My next door neighbor is always watching us.

    This is an outrage. I had to call the police on our neighbors for taking my picture all the time. I took them to court for a peace order in an act of privacy infringement. Afterwards, they installed a camera surveillance system on the side of their house to watch me and my son at all times. We have no privacy. The local police say they cannot do anything about it and are influence by the fact that the husband is a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy. I think there should be a law using a security camera system to watch my yard. I am a single mother, whom that man loves to watch me. He told the Judge that it was to protect them from me breaking into their home. Give me a break. If that is true then they should have it on their property to watch their windows and doors. Is there a law against this? Please respond. Enough is enough! E-mail me at: est1001spirit@hotmail.com

If my suspicions will come true, my husband will confront him and we will call police. If they don't help, we will install cameras on them and see how they will like it.

    What we as a people need to do is fight this. Petitions, A web site to help fight these ignorant, evil people, who have no lives of their own. In schools in Canada there is a no bullying policy. Well when the hell is the Bullying going to stop? Can someone answer that. I have been continuously Harassed, My Neighbors older 43 years old, his son went after my children 6 and 12 years old yelling profanities and threatening to break my children s arms, When does it stop, when do people have rights to privacy and the right to enjoy their daily lives. I'll tell you when, when a parent finally snaps because of video tapeing their children and someone get seriously hurt or killed. Thats when it will stop, and by that time its too late. I would like to know when people will just fight back and start trying to do something about it. Don't we pay our taxes, don't we make our government??? Since when are we not heard, we are heard only when we make it a point to be heard.... Any one interested in trying to do something about this insanity please contact me>>>

    Crazy neighbors

    My wife and I have 2 crazy neighbors. The mother lives on one side of us and the daughter lives on the other side of us. They have made up many, many untruths about me. They have called the police on me 10 times and have spread untruths to my other neighbors! Had lawyers send me letters! They are a nightmare! I pleaded to the police that I have done nothing wrong to deserve this treatment! They suggested I mount security cameras in my trouble areas. So, i did. Within 3 days after mounting the cameras the mother called the police with more false reports about me. This time she was screwed! I played back the video and proved my she was telling many untruths about me. The police were shocked! Then, 30 days after I mounted cameras, one of the cameras in our back-yard caught the daughter spraying our trees, flowers, and bushes with weed poison. Then, she sprayed some of her own small trees and called the police and said, I had been spraying and sprayed her trees. Again, video evidence was on my side! That happened in July of 2008. I have had no trouble from them since! Thank God! My opinion is sometimes video evidence is needed to clear your name, as in my case. Now, someone pointing cameras at someone else house, property, for no reason what-so-ever is another story.

    Dittos

    I have an aunt that has some crackhead neighbors. my aunt had put up a video camera and tried to turn in the neighbors with the video evidence of them MAKING and using the drugs. The case was denied because her "video evidence" is recording the neighbors property, this yes, is an "invasion of privacy". The only way you can even produce evidence of ANYTHING is when its on your own property or if there is reasonable cause by the police department with search and seizer. No matter what your neighbors are doing, they have the right to privacy. If you see someone murdered or raped, that's a whole different story. If the neighbor is a peeping tom or just an annoyance with "telling you they have proof of your kids blowing stuff up in your backyard, you have the upper hand because its only incriminating evidence to your neighbor, not you. Its all about the "Video Angle". You are allowed to record everything that happens withing your property and you are able to use that as legal say. BUT, if you are angled outside your property line, you can not use this as any evidence until there is reasonable cause by the police, and even then its up to the court if they want to accept it as evidence. Keep in mind, this is Colorado i'm talking about.

    neighbors invading privacy

    I have the same problems with my neighbors. Some crazy woman moved across the street with her daughter who has bullied my daughter all year all school. First, she just watched us with binoculars, but when I complained to the apartment manger and called the police, I was told that if you have your windows open or are outside you forfeit your right to privacy according to the law. After time went by, they began spreading untrue rumors about me, and told people in detail how many times she changed her clothes each day, and what outfit she put on when she was planning what to wear to school the next day. They knew what we ate each night at supper, and went as far as trying to have me arrested for carrying “strange bottles” to my apartment all the time. I was buying Gatorade. When I put aluminum foil over all my windows, she began threatening us. We were granted a temporary restraining order.

    In some states, stalking is illegal, but you have to have a lot of evidence to prove it. You have to document everything. Take pictures. Install your own cameras. Invite people over, a lot of people. Show them what is going on so you have witnesses. The police will not do anything unless you have proof, and even then
    its hard to get them to do much unless there have been threats or someone gets hurt. It is sad, but that’s how it works here. You are better off hiring an attorney or talking to the prosecutor in your county. They can tell you what the laws are, and give you information on how to protect yourself. Don’t lose your temper around anyone. They will try to make it look like you’re crazy and paranoid. That’s what happened to me at first.

    When you report invasion of privacy issues you have to be careful about how you word things. Most people will think your crazy, but if you tell them what you have seen, and have a picture and/or witness to back you up it helps. Document what is happening for a while. There are devises you can buy online and at radio shack that can block surveillance. There are devises that detect wireless and wired bugs, phone taps, etc. There are also things called jammers that disable wireless spy equipment.

    Have fun with them. My lawyer at one point told me to buy poster board, draw hands with middle fingers sticking up, and hang them in the windows. One of my friends told me to scratch my butt and smell my hands constantly. Do crazy things that will get them talking about things are have no legal right to see. Get them to tell on themselves.

    Hiring a private investigator is an option too.

    I am still fighting this mess, but I finally have enough people listening to me and helping me, so hopefully this spying/stalking mess will be over soon.

    Re: Re: stalking neighbors

    I believe I know who you are Bird. My cameras do not work and have not worked since the painters were here and turned the cameras off the direction I originally had them. My VCR recorder short-circuited from the poor wiring. I have not had the money to fix this problem. A new VCR recorder for my cameras costs approx. $500.00. The cameras were installed by workers from the top of my roof which I cannot reach, therefore they have remained in that position. I have told you many times about this, and you still seem to be paranoid that I have an interest in you, your wife and your property. I HAVE NO INTEREST IN YOU AT ALL. I RESPECT OTHER'S PRIVACY AT ALL TIMES. I EVEN KEEP MY SHUTTERS UPSTAIRS SHUT AT ALL TIMES TO GIVE YOU YOUR BACKYARD PRIVACY. I must say, though, myself and my daughter, and my friends have caught you watching us through your windows, my daughter when sunbathing in the backyard is one of the many times you have been caught inappropriately spying on us and eavesdropping as well. Your long-term unemployment of 15 years where you do mostly nothing inside your home probably has something to do with this. Your paranoia is self-projected from your own guilt and inappropriateness.

    Re: My next door neighbor is always watching us.

    Have cameras installed on your property pointing at they're property. Install discreetly.Make sure he is not aware of the install. I am sure you will find him using more than his cameras to watch you. If you catch him doing the "peeping tom" or other inappropriateness, then you can use the law against him.

    At this point, I would hire a private investigator, it may be expensive, but you may be able to find a new grad from a PI program. They will have the necessary tools to prove what your neighbors are doing. Prosecute them!

    To all you people with horror stories...

    To everyone waking up shaved, gassed, harassed, having sound piped into your home and being watched every free moment in the "privacy" of your publicly viewable yard, try this...

    Try *embracing* the technology you would so readily villify. If there is harassing behavior going on, the best way to stop it would be to document it on camera. Sh*t or get off the pot.

    I myself have video/still motion detection cameras facing forward and back on the car I drive every day. It's comical to post peoples reactions as they pass the back of my truck; it's even funnier to see the comments people post when these photos are posted online.

    Is it illegal? Not when the images are captured from a public location. Deal with it, folks... next time you're walking through a parking lot there may be more than the businesses cameras looking at you.

    Stalking neighbors

    I have lived a with a stalking "Christian" neighbor for 8 years. We have been through the ringer with them. They have cameras pointing at our house where we park our car and yes a bathroom window and our balcony. It's a long story but we have complained to everyone about it our attorney, sherrif, judge and etc. Gone to court they had better attorney than us and made us look stupid although they had no proof for their alligation NO not even videos. They have been asked to removed them but nothing has changed. I no longer have any money to fight it anymore. I'm beside myself I live in a rural area and live like we are in jail. This is not fair.

    Nosy Neighbors and Urban Stalking

    WHen I first began to notice something amiss in my daily life and how the subtle differences in daily activities was becoming more and more Obvious, I went to the internet. There I was exposed to far too many sites and commentaries which rambled on over and over about the same incredible scenarios, but went nowhere with it. It's The Government...Remote Viewing..Gang Stalking... Psychotronics ( which was my favorie fo the lot, pretty much)... Satellite Viewing...etc...
    These sites go on and on and on and feature very little hope to the reader. It is like going to a horror movie that is truly disturbing, and then you are living in it. WHich makes all of this info ( and disinfo) sort of a Brainwash in itself.
    I have since discovered a few things that have both Put me at peace with all of it...and also effected me adversely equally so. But it is much better to understand somewhat what is going on, than it is sufferring like before, wondering who? Why? What? THe Hell is doing this. The WHY is the most disturbing question. The darkest part is usually the Answer!
    My advice to all... Treat the problem as if ..well, perhaps it is a sort of Disease that is part of you. YOu live with it, ...deal with it, and try to take better care of yourself. Worrying will only bribg about sufferring and probable death. Definitely psychological issues will flow from the well of worry.
    Just realize...It is NOT YOU...who is being followed around by "neighbors"...or "aliens"... well...not specifically, in 99% of the cases. It is everyone. And if you become all-too-aware of this phenomenon, then it will BECOME YOU, who is targeted specifically. It is equal opportunity viewing and it is performed by..well...people who have been arounf for quite a long time. And they run this planet the way it must be run.
    WIth the info you get on the net and all the hype, they can actually manipulate this state of concern into a situation of anarchy and hysteria...which they would capitalize on fully, and many lives would be lost, yet they would still be in control, the truth never being told to the public.
    Best thing to do is...Relax. Take a deep breath... Live your lives as if nothing is wrong. When they send their signal to let you know their presence, just know it is a simple person making noise..they do not know what they are doing. It isn;t them that decided to make that sound. When you have fear, your frequency changes, and you become like a videogame or tv monitor, and this energy actually creates the very things that are freaking you out. And it will always keep going. I finally STOPPED GIVING A SHIT.
    THis went on for years. THen one day something happened and I wound up falling down some stairs and broke a rib ( some guy was standing near a staircase , tapping his foot, with a cell phone pointing at me, I tripped when I saw him.. At that point, I realized, IT's OVER. Since then, the answers have come in different forms. SOmetimes I stil hear and see things that would seem to indicate those Synchronous Happenings from, before. But I simply DO NOT pay it a second though. And am blessed with a WAY nicer life these days that what I sufferred for several years in distress.
    Ignore.......And Conquer! No...forget conquer..it is not the right mindset. Be at Peace With...MAKE PEACE with "your tormentors"...and they will not have your fear to drive them on. It is not Money they need for their operation...It is Strong EMOTION..PERIOD! Fear and Sexual Impulse being at the top their list of suppliers of energy.
    Food for thought. Sincerely, Jim Myers.

    Nosy neighbor surveillance

    I posted a comment 2 hours ago and described something that happened that ultimately helped me to overcome a peculiar type of "harrassment" that occured for several years straight.
    I mentioned there was a man standing at the top of a staircase and that I fell when I saw him.
    What had happened was..I live in a nice condo complex... and I had gone out to the jacuzzi..it was late at night and the pool area was closed. It is a great time to enjoy a nice, peaceful sit in the sauna without others coming along while you are there. Anyway, afterward ,, I got out and was walking back to our unit. I heard what sounded like idiots clowning around and mumbling something "There he goes,toward the stairs". And a follow-up comment. I wanted to see who might have said this, or what they might do if I go somewhere else other than straight home. Keep in mind, that is what the whole thing with this harrassment
    issue seemed to be...A GAME, perpetrated by others...pretty much everywhere I went. As if I ws not ALLOWED to have privacy or time to be alone. And their tactics were basically designed to "Let him KNOW you are there" , as they had particular movements and sounds that would easily be identified as Signals. Blatant...Obvious... Yet others close to me could see a Purpouse or design about it, and thought I was possibly "losing it". They could not understand where my concerns were coming from. i am a skilled musician...Bass Player ( standup and electric). ANd I am VERY sensitive when it comes to the TIMING of things. It was the Synchronous Activity that first got my attention, and it got worse as time wore on.
    When I was at the Staircase leading to the Parking Lot under the complex, I went in and sat on the steps. I started to read a magazinwe that I was looking at while in the spa. Then I heard the footsteps. SO I awaited to see if someone would enter the staircase, knowing that someone was bound to walk in...a guarantee, since I was literally NOT ALLOWED to have a moment where they were not "watching me". I know, it sounds pretty paranoid. I am NOT a paranoid person by nature. Yet I did become quite paranoid, perhaps, regarding these " Games" that were going on. WHen I say games, it really was a battle of wills. I swear, if I was to drive out to the middle of the desert in the cold of night, and park...and just sit, thinking I was all alone..FINALLY ALL ALONE. I guarantee you, a car would have appeared on the horizon, cruising fast at first..Then it would slow down. Then, at about 50 yards or so from it , it would stop. People would get out...and it would be as though their car had a flat tire, or overheated...etc. For whatever reason, they would stop there. And simply proceed to make their Stupid noises..like the sound of breaking glass... the "hucking" sound people make to clear their throats, which , for some reason, I find more offensive than burps and farts)... Their conversations are always disjointed, and they are NEVER talking about themselves. Always a third party. Seriously, if you TRY to listen comprehensively, to their conversations, you will NOT be able to understand it. And that is for a reason. Of course, when trying to explain this to anyone, they will first think of WHAT IS WRONG here? in reference to the mental state of the attacked.
    SO don;t bother telling people about it. I told my wife for awhile...she wasn;t really understanding. Then she started to believe me. THen she noticed very odd occurrences wherever she went. Then...well, we BOTH had to undergo this for several years.
    The guy at the staircase...oh, yeah...let us not forget him ...which I am inclined to do as he means very little to me nowadays... I heard footsteps. But after over a minute, they continued, but noone was to be seen. I said TO HELL WITH IT, and got up pto return to the condo...That is when...and they were not expecting this..I turned around abruptly, and there he was. Some cornhole was standing just outside the slightly ajar door, TAPPING THEIR FOOT on the ground, while staring in with a cell phone pointing at me. I slipped and went crashing down the stairs. After about 10 seconds, the guy walked right by me..I could NOT MOVE, I was in shock. And he simply mumbled something like, " Whoa, that's quite a fall" or some aloof statement like that....with his phone still pointing at me as he WALKED OVER me!
    As I said...If this is occurring in your life, it probably seems like A GAME. They do not touch you...they do not DIRECTLY hurt you...but they DO by way of torment and confusion. They seem to be police-like operatives, which they are not.
    Seriously, the best thing to do is learn to get by WITHOUT
    WORRYING...without stopping to LISTEN or OBSERVE the synchronous happenings around you. Just tell yourself..They are the sounds of Nature. No Matter how hard it is. you must do this. I found it to be QUITE EASY, actually. THat is when some strange coincidences led me to various answers that I could not obtain when under attack.
    They were NOT answers I really wanted to hear...but what they were DID, in fact, bring me a sense of peace, knowing it was nothing personal and that NO ONE was personally out to get ME, per se. They are there. They are doing their thing. And it is NOT the government. Or , at least, NOT the GOvernment, as I , or we, understand it to be. And they are UNBALANCED in their sense of justice. It is not justice they seek at all. It is chaos, which is the only force that drives them. It is all they know, because they were abandoned that way. The only proper b alance to achieve in Justice would be to USE their tactics in a way that you MAKE YOUR OWN LIFE ***BETTER*** from it. Give up certain vices, train your thoughts to structured, good, positive thoughts about the future...do not dwell on the past or the feelings of guilt and unaccomplished visions will be their channel of operandi. If you do dwell on the past, then begin building on those unaccomplished goals, and bring them to fruition. In doing so, these ...hmmm, I will use some religious symbology here, since it really is HELL when you're under attack. In doing what I just said, you can turn these unbalanced "demons", if you will...
    and they become as Angels, because they HELPED you to realize a better life for yourself. You tip the scales in your favor, and the unbalanced extremes of...(Justice?)..well, ..they will simply move on to the next unwary person who is sensitive to their presence.
    I hope this helps. There is no way to describe it , really. I am being a little bit vague, yet very imformative at the same time. I want to focus on the positive, not the negative. I have seen shit that would really cause a stir in humanity, if everyone was to uncover it at the same time. Chaos would ensue. So I urge that folks do not go looking in the darker corners of the Earth for answers to this trend of paranoia that is in vogue these days. THis has been going on for a LONG time. It is nothing new. It is just that, with the electronic age, man's vision can stretch further into the dark than ever before. The Elders did not have electronic gadgetry, thus they were able to look into the LIGHT, as opposed to the Dark..which is supplied by Material Wizardry and plastic, short-lived Technological breakthroughs OF THE MOMENT. Thus, they have very little, if NO Soul, at all.
    I hope this helps SOMEBODY out there. SIncerely, JIM.

    You must be to chicken shit to talk to them. Seems you need to get some gumption to talk with the neighbor. If it fails then call the authorities. If you talk to him, he may move the camera down. But no, you are to chicken shit to talk. wow. Have you ever thought of the things that may have happend to the neighbor to put up the camera. Do not be stupid, just take pictures of the camera and the angle of the lense toward your backyard.

    Videos pointing over tall privacy fences

    I have an 8 foot board on board privacy fence and no houses have windows that look into my yard so it is completely private. Thankfully I've got great neighbors on the side that shares the common side of my fence as well as on the other side. I would however be beyond upset if someone put a camera above the 8 ft fence line and pointed it down into my yard to take pictures of my private yard. When you have a completely private backyard I think you have reasonable expectation of privacy in that yard which is different that if you go out in your front yard. If anyone pointed cameras above my 8 ft fence line down into my yard which is not a security risk to them since it is my secure yard, I'd put up something to block the cameras or else shoot/damage them.

    Re: I'm fed up - are you?

    Dave, can you let us know what city/state you live in? Would be very interested to know the outcome of this. Your situation is my biggest fear. I've made a point of buying houses with 8 foot board on board privacy fences with no neighbors windows looking into my backyard. I'm a bit of a privacy hound. Thankfully my current neighbors who share the one shared side of my 8 foot fence are nice people who also like privacy so we've got agreements to call each other if we have contractors that will be on the roof, trees, etc. But I shudder to think what life would be like if they were like your neighbor. I think there need to be laws against this type of invasion of privacy. If you have a private backyard that no one can see into, having someone put a camera up on a roof or pole just to look into your private backyard is an invasion of your privacy and your peaceful enjoyment of your home. I would hope the city and the law would be on your side. Please let us know how it goes.

    Video Camera Surveillance...

    Our neighbor uses one single surveillance camera attached to their roof and pointed at our yard and pool to record all our movements and our minor children. The police have seen it and asked them to move it because it doesn't record or observe their own yard but they have refused. The police said it isn't illegal because a yard (even with an 8' privacy fence) is considered a public place. We put up a fence to screen our patio and have planted trees and bushes around the pool but they just moved the camera higher and still record our yard. SICKO's.

    Re: My neighbors are spying on us with wireless rermot

    My neighbors are also spying on me. They engaged in a smear campaign against me and have half the block paranoid. Microscopic surveillance nanotechnology (probably ID-Dust) is being spread all over my outdoor property and car during nightly intrusions by these neighbors. I am harassed by people honking around my house and following me wherever I walk, or my car goes. The cops also think that I'm nuts and I have a hard time getting protection. However, I have an RF Signal Detector II, from Brickhouse Security, that can detect the signals that these devices give off. I'm currently waiting for an RF Signal Jammer from the same company that I bought the detector from. I suggest that you good folks do the same. In addition, you should know that most surveillance devices are vulnerable to being destroyed by strong laser pointers being pointed into their lens. An electronics center should carry them. IMPORTANT!: However, make sure that you protect your eyes from the laser light being reflected back into your face. Good Luck!

It's in plain sight not hidden and has stopped her in her tracks. I feel safer and so do my other normal neighbours who were also being affected by her behaviour.

    WE agree he's an ASS! We have a woman at the front of our easement who has placed a camera on the only entry & exit to our home, the only one behind her. We believe it to be harassment and a form of hate crime against us because our grandchild is a Juv. reg. Sex offender. We put up signs and she always wins with the cops coming and bitching at us. She runs a daycare but we were here first, he has done nothing to her. Her name is Rocio Gannaway from Peru, dumped the american husband. We Americans have no rights. We believe it will cause theft on our home only and may have already.

    do you really think you would be safer if we were under camera servalance? how about if you were locked up in a paded room in a straightjacket,you would be safe from yourself and others. police agencies and our goverment are not doing their constitutionaly mandated duties but are doing the bidding of the corperate monopolies,we used to have nofault insurance,where you could take out a poicie if you felt you needed it to protect your assets if you could afford it. because of corperate lobbiest they take away your right to travel,unless you meet this corporate mandate .now we have to have checkpoints to see if our seatbelts are secured,our helmets are properly approved,have we been drinking,ect,without probical cause my point is inorder to have a free society we also have a certine amount of risk factor in it. those who would give up freedome for security diserve niether. its time for us to fire the corupt publiic servent from all parties and do the job ouselves untill we find replacemets. read the declaration of independance,if i had to explaine you wouldent understand.jcb

    Re: Re: stalking neighbors

    Wait till they go out of town or for the evening (wear a hood and all black inccluding shoes go over and rip their gdamn camera out.

    I have neighbors who have pulled an all time low. We thought we could trust the ass we allowed to watch our home when we went out of town. Came home and found every drawer in the house gone through and this ass was running to leave and The neighbors came into our home thinking they could without any breaking of the law because they paid him to let them in!! They are THAT nosey. This invasion of our privacy has gone on for 15 yrs now and they lie on my husband's federal background investigation hoping he will get fired, they have taunted him and if I come down with a terminal illness I'm sure all can guess where I'm heading, but ooo no I won't kill anyone I'd just stick them in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives!

    Re: Re: This is just typical Mike blather

    My nabors have been watching with camera and whatever else for well over a year almost two now started the week they moved into the naborhood even made it a point to be sure I knew they were at first I was in fear I have 3 smalls kids and my boyfriend works out of town a lot as it went on almost daily I decided they'd soon get bored and move on I work 6 days a week and tend to 3 small kids my life is not exciting why watch now its been almost two year they watch atevery. Private monets they can mostly when I shower now I can't prove it but I figure fight fire with fire if they spy on me then maybe I can spy on them and get the proof to warn all my other nabors this to me is a form of sexual assult and its went on so long that I honestly believe it will esulate one day if not with me with someone else

    Re: stalking neighbors

    I felt the same way with my nabors they've watched me inside my home for almost two years during this time I tried to see what rights I have when it comes to the law all I've found out is there not a lot the law can or will do if they r doing it from the privacy of there own home for two years I've tolerated it my sugestion (how I'm gonna handle my nabors) fight fire with fire, buy ur self ur own cameras and whatever else might help and document them watching u. Then with ur proof I would inform everyone that lives. Around u just what it is they r up to also who knows what u might learn about there life that just might come in handy to make them stop

    Re: Neighbor stalking

    Ud be surprized how little the law will do in cases like this their hands r pretty much tied and if they r vidieoing u and been for awhile no telling how much more they could be doing check out the spy gaggets they make that u can buy for ease dropping as well as watching and because its ur nabor they can not only watch u but listen to ur every private conversation I'm dealing with the same issue been for two yrs which sounds crazy because my life is anything but exciting ud think they'd got bored by now but although the law might be unable to help u regain peace of mind u can stop it fight fire with fire its just as easy for u to buy these spy items and just as impossable for the cops to stop u from watching them from ur home maybe ull get something u canuse to put them in jailbut. Ull definately be able to gather all the proof u should need to inform all of ur nabors just how creepy and sick they r everyone around u has they right to know what it is ur nabor is doing and that it could be them next if not already as I see it this is stalking you which is a crime and though u can get help from the cops like every other crime it will one day esculate intosomething more serious who know just how far they might be willing to go it might not happen to u but even if they stopped today they r simply going to move to someone new and if they r not stopped

    Re: Malicious act of systematic harassment and intimid

    I had no ideal this sort of stuff is so common.like u my nabors have enjoyed stalking me from the comfort of their own home for almost two years now and though so many people comment is y worry if ur not doing anything wronge well ur right about what u saiid who knows what he might do with the vidieos he recording it doesn't matter if they r doing it from their own home rather then public stalking is still stalking the only differents with them doing it from their home is the cops hands r pretty much tied when it comes to helping u stop it. They make over a thousand different spy items they sell over the net from pretty cheap to ones that do a lot more for a little more money if they r vidieoing u they could be doing a lot more then that without ever leaving their yard try fighting fire with fire get u some spy toys and get as much proof as u can that they r doing this they even sell items that u can sit in ur home and ease drop on their everyprivate conversation who knows what u might over hear and record they could help u prove and stop what they r doing I know they say don't stup to their level but it might save ur life or ur family now I can't tell u that it has helped me to stop my nabor stalker but that's only because I have three kids and no extra money just laying around but as soon as I get paid this week is when ill start getting spy items to stop them. Uve gotta think odd r they have done me before to someone else and if not stopped after u they will do it again and like all crimials the longer they do it and get away with it the farther they'll take it with what they r doing already its not sohard to assume that one day they could commit sexual assult or even worse then if u can't get the cops to help with. The proof u get take it to every nabor around u warn them what's going on before long everyone will know what they r doing and begin paying attention to them all eyes on them it'll keep others safe and maybe help u to once again enjoy peace of mind as u family sleeps at night

    This has been very enlightening. I never realized how many crazy people there are in the world with internet access. Good thing I'm not one of them. I dont have any problems with nosy neighbors with cameras. I'm only being stalked by aliens with anal probes,the CIA with bugging devices, and the devil with lasers. Oh, and Al Queada is trying to kill me with anthrax. I find white powder in the bottom of my lemonade and cool-aid and sometimes in the bottom of my tea glass at resturaunts. At least I have my sanity,right?

    Asshole people

    I just realized I'm being stalked by neighbors. I hope their eyes fall out their heads. It's sick. I'm married with children, and work from home. I mind my own business. My life isn't exciting at all. I. Don't understand why they feel the need to do that. I've been followed to doctors appointments, the store, you name it. My computer was hacked and monitored for 2 yrs or longer. My private conversations, sex with my husband, everything put out there. Since my address is out there, strange people have been stopping by. I can't sit outside without cars slowing up to look at me, or strange people walking by. People are showing up at my kids bus stop. One of my daughter just started high school, and I take her to the bus stop and wait with her. I don''t trust anyone. I've been slandered and defamed. I think they're saying I'm a crackhead. I've never smoked crack in my life. I've smoked marijuana before, but I 've never been on crack. Nor have I prostituted. I think they also think we sell drugs, which we never have. My husband has been at his job 21 yrs. I've been with my job 16 yrs and have worked from home with this same corporation for 5. We are black and this is a predominately white neighborhood. This may have a lot to do with. When we bought the house one of the neigjbors asked me if I had received assistance. Then he said if he knew the house was for sale, he would have bought it. I'm sure he knew. It seemed a tad bit racist to me. He's a retired cop. I think he has a lot to do with the neighborhood stalking. I forgot to mention the online stalking and harassment as well. I offended an Internet radio host as well. After that the stalking went into full throttle. I can't mention what's happening there. I'd be looked at as crazy. I have been threatend with death also. It' really out of hand, to the point where I have to buy a gun, change locks, and buy security cameras. I have children and I will protect them at all cost. I sick of these disgusting people. I know my life is boring, but there life must be really pathetic.

    I also want to add that, I would prefer to use the term gangstalking. There have been a lot of other things going on as well. That term has been shunned. People will think you're crazy. I have good goddamn sense. Everything I read about that relates to me. Be safe everyone.

    Neighbor harassing us for 10 years

    Hi all, I have had a neighbor harassing us for 10 years and we have gone to court because he pressed harassing charges on us and we did not do anything to him, he is the one that came to my house at 5:30 am him and his wife and verbal attracted me with threats and accusations and then 2 weeks later we were served with a Injunction prohibiting harassment. The police will not help or court help so I went out and bought a Security Camera. I have mine pointing toward the driveway gate it does pickup activity from this neighbor. He has watched us drive up to our property and stares at us and the camera has caught this. He has also verbal attacked my husband when he came home from work one day. I use our camera for evidence aginst him if he every wants to take us to court agine. I don't trust this neighbor at all and he made the threat that he would do something to our property and he has also recruited another neighbor to also harass us as well. This is why I do not trust this neighbor and why the camera is up.

    neighbor's video surveillance

    as long as your neighbors are not posting videos of you in a public forum that violates any laws in your state they can have surveillance as long as they post signs. However do not be surprised if you try to turn in your surveillance to the police if they refuse to view criminal activity on your surveillance. Even more so if the police are friends with the criminals you are trying to report. Now the real kicker: when the police start charging you with harassment for having video surveillance because your neighbors have called them so many times because of your surveillance. Even more shocking is when the neighbors beat you up and the police dismiss all charges for the neighbor beating you up. In this day and age all criminal dockets are public but the magisterial judge that dismissed all charges is also capable of disappearing all dockets regarding the dismissed charges.

    Re: Re: Re: This is just typical Mike blather

    check this out! this is how much people who want to can spy on you 24/7 and for a nominal fee resell what they see on line on some private website. Spybubble.com
    There is no sign in Vanessa's speech that points to insanity, and the response comment from Jess is full of condescension and ignorance. Aimed to hurt, but why would you Jess want to hurt someone you don't know, someone who is so obviously full of anxiety and needs help. How evil. perhaps you are one these people I am talking about.
    There is a big motivator for common people with a criminal or immoral psychology to do this to regular people. MONEY. Just like your average family has their porn and pay a dutiful 30 or whatever a month with their cable subscription that includes porn,(I don't have cable) so these voyeurs will pay money to spy on the neighbors. There are circuits of these people who take a young woman, or older woman, and spy on them and do whatever. Once a person is in the circuit, hundreds of them participate and get off on affecting the life of the target,they vandalize their cars so as to keep them broke, they follow them around in their town and make motions to let them know they can see them and hear them thus trying to produce a paranoid state, provoke them everywhere they go and if nothing they actually enter your living area where they set up tiny cameras which require batteries, they call your employer they create gossip, because they get off in watching the girl suffer, this are the sadist voyeurs., and so on in their many varieties, because if you listen to your neighbors telephone calls you ARE a VOYEUR,(sick) They make people participate because once you click on their website or link you are accessory to an illegal activity. So Jess sorry to bust your ignorant blissful bubble, and truly wish this does not happen to you. Unless you like porn it is very hard for common people without technical hacking skills to investigate, you get losts in reels and reels of genitalia and sickness trying to find where it is. Anyone under the influence of this horrible people need professional help.

    So this horrible story of Vanessa needs to be investigated, but the police will do nothing it is true. She needs a base of $10,000. dollars to hire an internet technology detective. Vanessa story is not the only one. Victims are all with the same background, isolated without a support system of friends and family.

    They target recluses, volatile characters (people who get angry easily) such as the "customer service" angry people on youtube, or the exposed wives screaming at their bad husbands. they set them up, provoke them and they film them and put them on you tube and people go gawk and click and there is a five cents times however many times, can be thousands and thousands of dollars.

    They target immigrant girls who come to the country and have no support system.
    WAKE UP people, America is sick. those of you from another time think this only happens to celebrities. I feel terrible for Vanessa and I wish I could help but only money helps.

    The web sites are hidden within websites. Some are off shores where they can collect money and never be found. It is the PORNO INDUSTRY and of course the millions of voyeurs in the USA
