The recent Pasco County Florida gang stalking lawsuit where cops targeted children had a predecessor: Squitieri et al v. Nocco et al, which invokes civil applications of the RICO Act

Police and sheriff’s departments across the country that use “intelligence led predictive policing” are using a model designed by the CIA and other spy agencies to target terrorists. Now, these programs target political adversaries, low level offenders, and little children–in their schools!

When I first experienced gang stalking, I was inundated with calls from the various police and firefighter benevolent associations in an area of the country where defunding a corrupt police force is on the ballot this November, as the “Yes4Minneapolis” initiative gathers steam. And so, my commentary is not ordinary commentary either, as I was in contact with Derek Chauvin and his gang of MPD on many occasions, long before George Floyd was murdered there.

In fact, I know many members of that police department inside and outside of their “gangs,” for reasons that I discussed here on many occasions. Indeed, the police union head in that area is an associate and beer buddy of the Hell’s Angel’s, and many other “bike clubs.” So I know what police gangs are too.

All that aside, a couple years before the Pasco County sheriff was sued for gang stalking children, there was another lawsuit, and it also invoked the RICO Act to try to curb corrupt police. RICO can be applied in either a criminal or civil context. The filing that came to that gang stalking sheriffs department before others sued is Squitieri et al v. Nocco et al, and it reads like a story written in the last century in a dystopian totalitarian eastern bloc nation. But it’s not an ancient tale of Stalinist repression: it’s modern gang stalking in the USA.

Police harassing residents, and failing in their harassment, locking them up under the “Baker Act” aka a 5150, or mental health evaluation. Using helicopters to hover over peoples houses all day and night, or hovering those same copters over a “body farm” to terrorize students; and many more bizarre claims, that until just a couple short decades ago were unthinkable in any civilized democracy, but that are now common news stories. These cases are indeed bizarre, and just describing them can make a listener wonder which is crazier–the story teller or the cops doing these things.

Its not a small list of plaintiffs either, as it invokes the civil RICO Act against memmbers of that sheriffs department “gang.” From DocketBird.com

alleges upon facts and belief as follows: I. SUMMARY OF CLAIMS This is a Civil RICO claim which requires Plaintiffs to demonstrate that the Defendants have engaged in a “pattern” of misconduct (called “racketeering” under the RICO statutes). A Page 4 of 228 27 PageID 619 “Pattern of racketeering activity” requires that at least two acts of racketeering activity are committed within ten (10) years of each other. The Civil Action for RICO is defined in 18 U.S.C.A. § 1964 (c): “Any person injured in his business or property by reason of a violation of section 1962 of this chapter may. . . recover threefold the damages he sustains and the cost of the suit, including a reasonable attorney’s fee. . . .” Section 1962 has four (4) subparts and generally prohibits the use of income obtained from a pattern of racketeering activity or through collection of an unlawful debt to purchase, establish, operate, or participate in the affairs of any enterprise in interstate or foreign commerce. Florida’s RICO Act mirrors the Federal RICO Act.
