Gang stalking case studies: The deeply flawed California gang database and police catalogues of children.
Gang stalking likely started as a means to control and track gang activity. And the term organized stalking is likely another variant from the days of RICO when the FBI stalked organized crime. Then, as the NSA worked hard to wiretap all Americans, they told us it was terrorists they were after-despite the fact that not a single terror plot was disrupted by NSA surveillance.
The terrorists, which were-exactly nowhere to be found, despite the FBI working overtime on taxpayer dollars to create terrorists, and even then, the guys swept into these FBI plots are pretty lame, or mentally ill.
So, as actual crime dried up and the massive police and state infrastructure realized that it had some time on its hands and ample funding, it morphed into what we know today as the total surveillance state that uses databases to open hidden investigations, capture, read, store data about any American citizen, and otherwise subvert due process in a secret process that is destroying our Constitution.
First they came for the gangsters of the Mara Salva Trucha, or the guys from Diece Ocho’s. Then, they came for their children.
The dangerous diapered gangster babies in the CalGang database.
In 2003, California began attempting to gather the name of every known gangster and gang affiliate in the state. The state credited with having a large part in the birth of the modern street gang movement was doing anything it could to turn the tide.
CalGang, as the database became known, was supposed to only be accessed by law enforcement agencies and used to add people to gang injunctions, support arguments for enhanced sentencing in court and even be used to disqualify families from living in public housing.
Problems quickly arose, however, especially when it came to the question of adding juveniles to the list. CBS Los Angeles reported that a law was passed in 2013 requiring parents or guardians to be notified when their children were added to CalGang.
A new audit (PDF) of the program, however, finds that the problems ran deeper than mere notification; it found that some in state law enforcement appeared to be worried about gangster babies.
And this from Ali Winston at Reveal News:
In a report released this morning, the California State Auditor harshly criticized management, oversight and use of the CalGang database, which tracks people with alleged gang ties across the state.
The 115-page report found inaccuracy rates of over 20 percent for individual gang criteria, a total lack of oversight and transparency, hundreds of people whose entries had not been purged from the system in the mandated five-year timeframe, and a failure to follow a 2013 law requiring that juveniles – and their guardians – be notified when they are included in CalGang.

NSA stopped no terror attacks, from NBC news:
The FBI terrorist creation factory:
In the case of the “Newburgh Four,” for example, a judge said the government “came up with the crime, provided the means, and removed all relevant obstacles,” and had, in the process, made a terrorist out of a man “whose buffoonery is positively Shakespearean in scope.”‘

Typically, the informant also induces, lures, cajoles, and persuades the target to agree to carry out the FBI-designed plot. In some instances where the target refuses to go along, they have their informant offer huge cash inducements to the impoverished target.
Robert Lorenzo Hester of Columbia, Missouri, didn’t have the $20 he needed to buy the 9-volt batteries, duct tape, and roofing nails his new FBI friends wanted him to get, so they gave him the money. The agents noted in a criminal complaint that Hester, who at one point brought his two small children to a meeting because he didn’t have child care, continued smoking marijuana despite professing to be a devout Muslim.
