Adult Bullying: Victims Speak Out
Written by Erin MacPherson

Here on 5 News we've told you about all different kinds of bullying that happens in schools, but bullying doesn't just affect kids, it affects adults too.

We met three people Thursday who are victims of adult bulling or as they refer to it, organized stalking. Two of them are from Pennsylvania, but were in the area for their support group, which helps them get through their daily struggles of people constantly putting them down.

"We feel this is a great abuse going on in the world, not just in out country but across the world. We feel that this is a global problem," said John, Victim.

John and Terry are friends from Pennsylvania who have been living in fear for years.

"I was inundated with harassment, just absolutely inundated with it. I would be told what I did that day, what I did the day before, where I went what I had to eat, what I was wearing currently, and where I was sitting in my apartment," said Terry. 

"Some of us that are single people that live alone are harassed in the community. The hacking of electronic devices: computers and phones," said John. 

These are just two of many people in the world who are suffering from stalkers and bullying.

"It's totally immature. It's like ten-year-old on the school yard bullying, but yet it's on steroids with adults. It goes so much further than that," said Terry. 

People who are suffering from this lose money from changing locks, fixing computers, or even moving.

"Just a slow take down of a person life overtime. "I had a respectable career and I was married and I had a home and a car, typical thing. Now, I don't have a whole lot left in the world," said John. 

Terry and John have gone to the police with this information, but apparently lack the evidence needed for a case.

"I actually took the computer and threw it in the dumpster, which was a terrible thing to do because the hard drive and everything was in there. I had tons and tons of things on there that probably would have been helpful," said Terry. 

"We are trying to gather evidence that we can that things are going on," said John. 

Why do these people do this? What can be done?

"It seems to me that they enjoy being a part of this. We need laws to be passed. We need laws to be upheld. We need ethics to come back into our lives," said Terry. 

Luckily, Terry and John have found support groups that help them get through day to day life.

" It's important to have connection with other people going through this," said John. 

"I can't describe what it has been like to talk to somebody who understands this and then to find out that there's people all over the country that are going through this. I've made so many friends now and it's been the difference between being able to keep going and not," said Terry. 

Terry and John said hopefully by coming forward people are will be more aware of this problem.

I had to close my law office (divorce law) in Pinellas County, Florida in 2012 due to the hacking of my onternet access email accounts, iphone, phony potential clients and harassment by members of local law enforcement (particularly the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office PCSO) and by others, no doubt, acting on their behalf. Beginning in 2008 and for two years, the almost daily harassment, was mainly vehicular. It has become more subtle, for lack of a better term. I referred to it in my color of law complaint's addendum (which I filed with the Justice Dept. and FBI) as "psychological lynching" in the community. I had not then read about adult bullying (community mobbing or organized gang stalking). Many online articles about it speak of mind reading, microwave bombardment, electromagnetic waves, etc. which I find difficult to believe and discount. (Whether those articles were written as disinformation, people actually believe such things, or perhaps they happen, I guess anything is possible, I don't know). But what I do know is that community mobbing occurs. Why have I been targeted? I dated the wife of the fourth highest PCSO officer as her divorce attorney in 2003, and until 2011. I have also been falsely smeared as a child molester and a potential one, no doubt, by the ex-husband and cohorts for revenge and due to false assumptions. I viewed a lot of adult consenting porn as a Big Brother. I would gladly take all testing available to disprove the smear and asked to be tested three years ago by the PCSO. I have learned that "law enforcement officer" can be an oxymoron. If interested, you can read about few months ago, my situation in my website - systematicpolicharassment-pinellascountyflorida.

I was just reading the last comment. "Jeepers?" Really? With all the billions of dollars the U.S. throws away on the giant intelligence industry contractor pig-trough, you would think we would get a better quality of disinformation from the fake online persona sock-puppets. Instead, we get "Jeepers' what a lot of strange people!"

To read more about the police state's bullies, sock puppets, and corporate spooks, search "fight gang stalking."

These comments 'prove' there's still a whole lot of folks still doing drugs out there and walking around. Jeepers; what a lot of strange people!

Excellent report - I hope you do a follow-up. This subject (organized stalking) is getting discussed more every year. A google search of "gang stalking" now yields about 6 million results (although most media outlets still won't touch the subject with a ten-foot pole).

Erin MacPherson's next report on this should address the questions raised - at Fight Gang Stalking and elsewhere - about why this activity seems to involve tactics associated with counterintelligence operations.

I have been targeted with gang stalking when I am alone and with my father in his car and with him. Its really horrible. And as an example, I was in court today, and one or more were using the iphone that is use as a means to remote controlled zap me to my body, cause heat headaches. it is a horrible helpless feeling and the officer of the court could also be using her computer or through the surveillance cameras in the court. But, I have witnessed the iphone being used against me. the neighbors have used a device also , but a device with a motorized sound and it also zaps the body through a wall, its called microwave directed energy, or electromagnetic energy that can make your body jerk, cause pain to heat up your head. the gang stalkers can give hand signals, nods, to let you know they are targeting you at any time to intimidate bullying you daily. And they drive up to you in their cars or come close to you too, all intimidation. Ive seen cop sticker today as I was walking out this girl made it obvious because of the way she looked at me, mean attitude too. white van(circle window was there, always there, shuttle van, they are making me sleepy as I write this to stop what im writing which I the truth.

FFCHS is not an adult bullying organization, they concentrate on electronic weaponry and hearing voices from V2K. Adult bullying is laterally different and more boots on the ground. People who have been subjected to this know what I say. Im starting a group in the NY metro area as of next week. You must email to get information. This group if for high functioning people basically and not for those who need psychiatric monitoring.

I have been bullied like this by adults and its just pathetic! No wonder our world is in such a terrible state. It's ridiculous, and evidently adults don't mature as they age.
Nov 22, 2013 at 1:51 PM
After reading some of these comments; I feel like I've just visited the Twilight Zone. This is crazy stuff. Oh my. Seek help for sure.

Hi folks - I'm Eleanor White, a retired engineer with three decades of targeting, and I've taken the time to carefully look at the known, proven to exist, proven to work technologies capable of some of what we experience. My own experiences, plus those of hundreds of other targets, make it pretty clear that classified (secret) technologies are in use.

To keep it clear what the proven, not classified technologies can and can't do, I urge all targets to scan this document, titled "Unscrambling Electronic Assault Technologies": http://www.randomcollection.info/oseh-techs.pdf I especially urge MEDIA people to scan it too. There is a bit of mythology being posted as to what e-weapons may be in use, and this e-booklet will help in keeping proven e-weapons and their characteristics straight.

I am in Tulsa, I am a Victim of Gang Stalking since May this year, and I have been also a victim of remote Electronic Attacks since September of this year. They use electronic devices against us that are operated from a distance, remotely. the most common electronic devices they use against us are lasers, also known as "personal defense laser pointers" (PDLP)( http://xtremeads.com/~xtreme33/index.php?id=11 ), they go by the name of PHASR (PHASER), they also use Microwave devices. The development of these weapons devices are since the time before WW2 by Nikola Tesla ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_tesla ). there is also more technology that is not known to the public that is use against the Targeted Individuals. In Europe these devices are known as PSYCHOTRONIC weapons and Directed Energy Weapons. In the U.S. they take advantage of the general population not knowing the existence and use of these Directed Energy Weapon devices. They must stop these attacks against the population! Thank you WDTV for broadcasting these events. May God bless also John and Terry. thanks also to www.freedomfchs.com/

To the 51 year old woman who feels alone, please contact me on linkedin and I will give you my email address. I will hopefully have a phone soon and we can talk. I am currently looking for work. Janet Wyatt Orlando

Thank you 5 News, WDTV, I am one of the souls which has to endure this. I am now living in a western state. For 10 years I lived in mid-west. Since this last spring I moved for the third time to Morgantown, hoping for Peace. In your state I was bullied off the job and turned-in to the Nursing Board of West Virginia. The nursing Board reviewed the records and stated it was unfounded.It still sends chills. How cruel bullies will go to be nasty. The sad thing is it never stops. Even if I say "uncle" it continues. No matter what I do, I can not get it to stop. The only hope is to educate the general public and hope as a group our Congressmen and Senators will listen. Until then we suffer, we have no choice. Again Thanks for reporting this crime.

Organized Stalking is a sophisticated crime perpetrated on an person, or individual, by sociopaths who are most likely involved in organized crime. They enlist or recruit friends, co-workers, neighbors, and others who have contact with the targeted person/crime victim. They wage a secret campaign against the victim which includes smear campaign, multiple stalkers following the person everywhere he/she goes, noise campaigns, staged skits also known as "street theatre", home invasions where items are moved from one place to another,harassment in the workplace, and many more tactics that are covert so that no one but the victim notices. The goal is to drive the victim crazy, cause the victim to lash out, leading to incarceration or mental institutionalization, or to commit suicide. The victim will inevitably drain their finances trying to combat the perpetrators by changing locks, moving to a new home, changing jobs, hiring private investigators, buying new computers and phones due to hacking and breakage of same, and installing security cameras which in many instances will mysteriously be circumvented, broken, hacked, etc. The victim is forced to live under 24/7 surveillance which implicates government agencies as being involved in this crime. There is no help for the victim. Police will not help. Telling authorities what is happening makes the targeting worse in many cases and only puts the victim at risk of falling into the mental health system which does not recognize organized stalking. This is way more that adult bullying, thus the statement "It goes so much further than that". But at it's core, it is about harassment/bullying, it is just that without anyone stopping them, the perpetrators always look for something else to do to the victim if the victim will not succumb to their abuse.

Who can I talk to when I feel im being bullied..Im 51 and a quite person living in a small town and made mistakes 7 years ago and still feel like im having to pay for it. I live next door to a younger woman and her husband and child, we do not like each other; she has told me her family are cops and she has an uncle whos a cop in this small town. I do not say anything to her and cant even go out to my own back yard without her starting something..there is more to this story..but I feel I don't know what to do, my husband doesn't seem to see it., so I feel I am alone with this matter...
Nov 18, 2013 at 8:52 PM
I'd like to add that crime statistics for the U.S. (and Canada and Great Britain too) show that one stalking complaint to police out of every eight complaints involve stalking by 3 or more stalkers. This isn't a rare crime.

Well don't hold your breathe. First of all, it's not govt's job to prevent someone from 'bullying' you. That's the first problem. Next, you're an adult and you tolerate this? Seriously, I'm finding this a bit 'political.'
Nov 18, 2013 at 2:20 PM
There are 'carry' laws; prepare yourselves and don't be intimidated. Adults should handle it.
Nov 18, 2013 at 2:18 PM
Our govt is not going to do a darn thing about bullying as they are doing it themselves! Stop thinking govt idiots can help; they don't want to or they'd stop doing it themselves.
Nov 18, 2013 at 2:17 PM
Sounds like our current govt; maybe the IRS, NSA, CIA, FBI??? They are now 'bullying' and stalking and hacking into law-abiding citizens' accounts, phone calls, etc.......

Maybe if the current administration in DC would stop setting a 'precedent' of bullying...this would STOP!

Thank you so much to John, Terry, and Julie for speaking out on this horrendous real problem affecting so many of us. And thank you to FOX News for airing it because it is important for the truth to be told and awareness to be spread. There is so much more to it and our government needs to finally step up and help. These are serious crimes upon humanity and it will only worsen for everyone if nothing is done to stop it. I hope FOX News will continue to report the truth.

Special thanks to WDTV.COM for posting this story. Here is an e-booklet written for the public, available in 7 languages, outlining the scope of the organized stalking crime:

This is a good story. Thank you.

Thanks to Erin who is very brave and very professional for reporting this story. I have been a victim since 2007 and have had my life in danger from organized traffic stalking by trying to cause vehicle accidents and have also had them threaten my life several times for filming them. This is a horrible crime and the public needs to be aware of it. I recently painted my basement and a group of them came in and ran their hands across the paint and smeared it all over the beams and the duct work. I have fingerprints and hand prints all over the place down there. Thanks aqain and God bless you. Julie

Thank you, WDTV, for airing this newstory. I reside in another U.S. state, and I, too, am enduring organized stalking and harassment, which has been occurring to me for over a year now. I have not been able to get the proper assistance I need with this serious problem. It has profoundly affected my ability to lead a normal, peaceful life in society.
Nov 16, 2013 at 10:49 PM
These people are called Targeted Individuals and are non consensual experimentees of new technology and biological experiments. The U.S ethics in experiments on the public in unethical and new technology is advancing to the point of killing people prematurely. Government grants have been given to Universities and private industries to study neurology and neuroscience. The frequencies and emf from electrical in our air is more damaging than most poisons. I am an electrical engineer and have measured potentials on human beings as high as 15 Volts AC. We are using grounding devices (earthing devices) and removing these people out of harm.

"A slow take-down of a person over time" is well put. At work, at home, in the community - including church - As bad as you can imagine group bullying, it is much worse. Then imagine more, it is still worse. It is psychological terrorism of a targeted individual. Incivility, swarming and mobbing, monitoring, isolating, character assassination, trauma on all senses, gas-lighting, sabotage, malicious mischief for a brief list. This relentless vicious attack provides a sick euphoria to the perpetrators. They won't stop until the victim is broken, broke, homeless, friendless, hopeless. They pick on anybody, from successful to the vulnerable in our society. Gang-stalking. Let's get this exposed.
Nov 16, 2013 at 10:42 PM
Thank you for covering this topic; John you did a great job. For those looking for help; FFCHS cover this topic as well
Nov 16, 2013 at 10:31 PM
Thank you so very much for airing this about John and Terri. I am a targeted individual and although I appreciate you airing this there is so much more to be said about this article. There are hundreds of thousands of us being tortured. This is way beyond "adult bullying". This is out right torment and torture. Log into Freedom from Covert Surveillance and Harassment. This is a group composed of nearly 3,000 people who are being tortured 24/7. We are known as "persons of interest" or "targeted individuals". Many are targeted and tortured who are not aware of our group. If you are harassed, gang stalked, tortured in any way, join us on Freedom from Covert Harassment on Saturday evenings 9 p.m. ET at 1-724-444-7444, code 66339 and hit 1#. This is inhumane, barbaric, torture of innocent people and it must be exposed immediately. We are being gang stalked, electronically harassed and brutally raped. These are psychopaths who are dangerous to society and must be removed from our streets.
