Organized gang stalking and fire departments
In a story covered on ABC’s 20/20,and now, by Courthouse news service, we have a glimpse of organized stalking of a family by firefighters and others who waged a horn honking harassment campaign for ten years against one person, who is now suing them.
Meet Rick Krlich and his wife Cindy, who have endured a horn honking campaign in Hubbard, Ohio for ten years and counting. He writes about his experience of ongoing harassment on his website “Small Town Terrorism,” the Rick and Cindy Krlich story. Or-who do you call when it is public servants acting in an organized fashion, breaking the law, with help and encouragement from police to firemen to the city legal council?
The presence of numerous public employees among those assaulting the silence around Rick Krlich’s neighborhood isn’t the only questionable behavior in this strange saga. The response of the city’s former Law Director and now sitting judge Jeff Adler creates doubt as to the administration of justice in Hubbard.
Not only did the former Law Director fail to process/prosecute many of the cases against horn blowers, he actually represented one offender, and withdrew from initial agreement to represent more, in appearances before a Trumbull County magistrate.
So ask yourself: He’s supposed to represent the city of Hubbard. The city has an ordinance against horn blowing except to ‘give warning’ to other drivers and pedestrians. Yet he goes into court with people that have been caught on surveillance cameras, and he defends them from being held accountable for violating the city’s law.
Many incidents of organized stalking mention that fire departments are part of the harassment, and that they use the trucks as ominous reminders to targeted individuals that they cannot escape the harassment.
The main difference between most of these claims and the claims of Rick Krlich is that OGS usually targets low status individuals who have little or no resources with which to fight back or even defend their basic due process rights or the right to the pursuit of happiness.
But Krlich is now suing, and it is likely he will win, because he had enough money and other resources to film, photograph, and record his stalkers, who at one point drove by his house and honked their horns 100 times per day.
What you will see here, Dear Reader, is a chronicle of spite.
Undeserved, uninterrupted, unyielding spite, triggered by one man’s belief that he could rely on the legal system to guide him through a simple real estate transaction.
What Garrick Krlich got, instead, was intimidation, frustration — and spite.
Krlich is a small contractor who lives unostentatiously in Hubbard, Ohio’s East Hill neighborhood. Over the years, he has managed to acquire surrounding properties, older homes like his that he turns into well maintained rental properties. He makes a decent living, isn’t greedy for more, and has been, overall, quite contented with his life.
Until the Clemente house next door became empty.
Until the noises in the night began. For more than four years now, the raucous sound of horns blowing has shattered the quiet of the night in the Krlich’s neighborhood, disturbing not only Krlich and his wife, Lucinda, but surrounding residents as well. The Krlichs lie awake, listening … waiting … and then come the sounds of the roaring engines, the screeching tires — and the horns. Horns that seem to be screaming “Go away! Leave! Never come back!”
