Wiretap and gang stalking and paranoia and psychology
There is ample evidence that agents and agencies, and institutional psychopaths and others are using the internet to actually cause paranoia, and spread fear. Don’t believe me? Just ask ‘the internet:’

Answer: “This question makes me think the asker is paranoid because they did something wrong or paranoid because they have some type of mental illness. Neither are good and you should either 1. stop doing something wrong or 2. seek medical help.”

Surveillance, intrusion, violation, and privacy rape are all major themes of gang stalking stories. Whether it is complaints of being wiretapped, or a feeling of being followed, and harassed secretly it is empirically documented in blog after blog that paranoia is a major theme. In the example above, this is what I call “webterrogation,” where the internet is used by many people as an investigative tool, or just as a tool whereby they can abuse their power.
And while the internet can be a valuable investigative tool whereby cold cases are solved by web forums like Websleuths, it is also a tool whereby LEO’s use and misuse databases and InfraGard to settle scores, harass, and unethically interrogate people.
It is the duty of criminal defense lawyers, psychologists and others to represent the best interests of their clients, and in cases where wiretaps are claimed, we must expand our paradigm beyond the quaint “pen register” of the 1970’s, and understand that the internet, cell phones, databases, and everything that interacts with them forms a total surveillance tool, much less the thousands of hidden programs that run on it.
While today’s victim of gang stalking has the advantage of being able to point to specific government programs and tactics that were hidden in the era before Edward Snowden, every narrative of the past must be viewed in light of few facts: that, in fact, any American that uses a phone are ALL wiretapped on some level, and, some are specifically targeted for NSA extra-judicial surveillance, even if we don’t call it a wiretap.
As revealed in the scandal with President Trump stating that “Obama wiretapped my phone,” and the ensuing nit-picking in the partisan media of the factual basis of “what is a wiretap, exactly?”- there is no longer any doubt that Trump Tower was in fact wiretapped, that his associates were in fact under surveillance, and that the “deep state” did it. And no rational person-no psychologist or criminal defense lawyer, or other interpreter or trier of facts could state that wiretap abuse is not rampant , and in fact, the new normal in America’s nascent police state.
Here, below from Techdirt.com is a story about a prosecutor who not only used wiretap orders to target enemies, but also- hundreds of times- simply forged a judges signature to do so. Ridiculous, abusive, and illegal-sure. But she, like most corrupt prosecutors, will likely get a slap on the wrist, as this form of prosecutorial misconduct is seldom discovered, and nearly never punished.
This case is the exception, not the rule, though in light of the Snowden leaks and others, abuse can be presumed in most post-Snowden cases; and this one only got noticed because of the massive scale of her operation:
More Prosecutors Abusing Their Access And Power To Illegally Eavesdrop On Conversations

Last time we checked in with (former) Brooklyn prosecutor Tara Lenich, she was facing state charges for abusing wiretap warrants to listen in on conversations between a police detective and one of her colleagues. This stemmed from what was termed a “personal entanglement” between her and the detective.
The wiretap warrants couldn’t be obtained without a judge’s signature. Since there was no probable cause for the warrant, no judge would sign them. Lenich had a solution. She just forged the judge’s signature on the warrant. And then she kept forging judges’ signatures, stretching out her illicit surveillance for more than a year, with a faked signature on every 30-day renewal.
Lenich is now facing federal charges. An indictment handed down by DOJ pretty much repeats the allegation of the state charges, detailing Lenich’s long-running, extremely-personal wiretap operation.
