News articles about organized gang stalking, lawsuits and “targeted individual programs” are gaining steam in the mainstream press, four years after I waged a one person public relations blitz against this form of “intelligence led predictive policing” which is really just junk science, and orthodox biased reporting combined with equally biased data.
Unlike the stories you will find using ROGS Analysis, main stream media is partisan, and biased, and always defaults to “official sources” in the narrative. Yet recently, even the USA Today covered “targeted individual programs,” and called them by their proper name, and even cited the movie “The Minority Report,” as many gang stalking targets have discussed online too. .
Unfortunately, the “official sources” in the gang stalking discourse are all police, forensic investigators, and pro-police psychologists who encouraged the racial profiling and rampant surveillance abuses of the last two decades. You can view these scurrilous persons here, most notoriously the internet famous “anonymous poll” created by Dr. Lorraine Sheridan, whose negligent commentary on that issue has unarguably led to homicides and suicides of targeted individuals.
The Pasco sheriff’s office, in its lengthier statement, said the program is modeled after one adopted in the United Kingdom in the 1990s and that the idea is not to target anyone for harassment.
“It is the goal of the Pasco Sheriff’s Office to have a positive impact on these individuals and our community,” the statement says.
The sheriff’s statement specifically mentions the 2002 film “Minority Report,” which starred Tom Cruise as chief of a “precrime” police bureau that arrests people before any crime is committed based on information provided by psychics.
The program, the sheriff’s office says in part, is not “in any way, shape or form the ideals or implementations projected in the film ‘Minority Report.'”
A central piece of that movie is the idea that some of the psychics disagree with the majority on whether a specific person will become a criminal.
Other jurisdictions have tackled similar issues. The Los Angeles Police Department, for example, last year scrapped for financial reasons a controversial program called “Pred-Pol” that sought to predict where property crimes would occur. Critics said it focused disproportionately on Black and Hispanic communities.
The Florida lawsuit contends the Pasco program violates constitutional amendments that protect rights of association and due process, and against unreasonable searches and seizures
So, when even the most pasty white piece of pabulum journalism on the planet earth–the USA Today— calls a targeted individual program a “targeted individual program,” you can bet that more is to come. Stay tuned.
