What are Special Surveillance Groups? And–how has the SSG structure impacted gang stalking targets?

Special Surveillance Groups are the FBI’s specialized surveillance teams, and they are quite good at what they do. Their job is to follow targets around, and not get spotted.

Yet, many targeted individuals will immediately recognize the methods and tactics, because as the agencies train these asshats, the spillover into the community is noticeable, as every block captain in a community watch group thinks they are James Bond, and targets people accordingly, using what they have learned online or in other places to “”act like” a special agent, but lacking in the finesses’ required to do actual surveillance.

In other words, most gang stalkers are NOT the FBI, or they are FBI rejects, having trained as gang stalkers, and not been recruited; and most gang stalkers are SLOPPY in what they do–they are easy to spot, because they are an imitation of the real thing, and lacking in the vast resource pool that the FBI et al. benefit from to cover their tracks and tracking.

These slobs have spilled out into the domestic spaces, to utilize what little they know, and they target ordinary US citizens. Most obviously, the cases of private FBI contractors stand out–and we see that in the case of the eBay stalker, James Baugh, who is set to go on trial in May, 2022. He pled with the court “but your honor, I was only doing the sloppy, illegal, and bizarre stuff that I was doing, because that’s what the FBI trains us to do at Quantico!”

And THAT sloppiness and ramshackle activity makes it easier to turn THEM into targets–their sloppy operations make them highly visible, and thus, their errors become your assets. You can begin collecting evadense* evidence according to their errors, and sue them later, or file restraining orders.

So, in case you missed it, here is a bit about what surveillance is from what is likely the Internets first targeted individual website, Spy & Counterspy, and below, is more about SSG’s from National Public Radio:

FBI Surveillance Team Reveals Tricks Of The Trade

When I met three SSGs in New York City recently, they would only talk to me under the strictest conditions. I had to promise not only to not use their names, but they didn’t even want me to describe them either. They say that might compromise their mission. And their mission is to gather intelligence for the FBI.

Once the ground rules were set, the trio — Tango, Bravo and Poppa, for our purposes — and their supervisor in charge, Charlie Muldoon, agreed to demonstrate how to follow someone in lower Manhattan.

“First of all, you would spread out,” Muldoon says, waving his arms around. “You wouldn’t stand in a parade behind the guy.”

And, he says, you’d have a team dressed for the occasion. SSGs carry entire wardrobes in their cars — a business suit in case they need to go to Wall Street, gym shorts in case surveillance requires them to go for a jog through Central Park.

Muldoon says he has some SSGs who travel with a bicycle in their trunk so that at a moment’s notice they could ride through the streets of New York pretending to be a messenger. “They are prepared for anything,” he says.

I pick out an unsuspecting Manhattanite and ask Bravo how they would start.

“We usually key on something, whether a bright color she has on or a particular item that might be unique,” Bravo says. “We relay that to other team members so they can see her when she comes to the next corner, so they would be able to identify her.”

Poppa chimes in. He says the team would set up some sort of “picket surveillance” in the surrounding area.

A picket surveillance would have the team covering all the subway entrances. They would be stationed at various corners. Bravo, who has been doing this for seven years, says the team would radio ahead with information.

SSGs have all kinds of techniques, and they all have catchy names like Picket and Web or Leapfrog. Leapfrog is kind of what it sounds like: SSGs will follow a target up to a certain point, then pass him off to another group up ahead, and then leapfrog to pick up the surveillance farther down the street.

When operating under Leapfrog surveillance, Tango says, they would be telling the people ahead that the target was coming up to them. “They should be telling us the next movement, so you don’t have to run and pullback, and run and pullback,” she says. “That’s kind of obvious, especially if there is a possibility that someone could be watching you from the rear.”

That kind of countersurveillance happened all the time during the Cold War. Tango was a member of one of the first SSG teams. They began as an FBI experiment in New York City in the 1970s. The pilot project was so successful that it went nationwide. Back then, it was all spycraft, like out of the movies.

*my followers are not always the brightest in the bunch–occasionally I get these exact James Bond types described above who can barely spell–or who use various mis-spellings for some peculiar purpose or other. So, the word evidence becomes “evadense” to those types. My “follower” will know who they are.
