The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, using taxpayer dollars.
However, only those stalking victims who report a single stalker are given assistance by OVC.
Stalking victims who report multiple stalkers are told "OVC does not provide any direct assistance to victims of multi-stalker incidents."
Why is that?
Why this double standard for stalking victims?.....One stalker= OVC assistance......More than one stalker = NO OVC assistance.
Organized Stalking, also known as Gang Stalking, Group Stalking, and Multi-Stalking, is a very real crime, with many thousands of very real victims.
In 2009, the Justice Department published "Stalking Victimization in the United States" (NCJ 224-527), a survey of 3,424,110 stalking victims.....Most of these stalking victims reported a single stalker (2,111,220 or 67%).... .... 619,300 stalking victims reported 2 stalkers. (18.1%)........213,770 stalking victims reported 3 stalkers..(6.2%).
A Freedom Of Information Act request to DOJ (# 10-00169) revealed that of the 446,790 episodes of stalking committed by 3 or more stalkers, more than 4 in 10 "were committed by the offenders working together"...That's more than 200,000. victims of an "organized group" of stalkers.
If someone stalks a celebrity, or an ex-wife or husband, or an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, they might well be apprehended by the police, and prosecuted for stalking, which is a federal crime, and also a state crime in most states.
The criminals who engage in Organized Stalking do so with impunity, knowing that local, state and federal law enforcement will do nothing to stop them......They are bullies..Organized Bullies, who stalk and harass their "targets" with gusto.
Multi-Stalker victims are America's forgotten crime victims
The least they should expect from their government is to be treated with dignity and respect..the same way "one-on-one" stalker victims are treated, and not to be dismissed as being "paranoid" or "crazy" just because it's not one person who is stalking them, but a group of people, (usually total strangers), who find it "fun" to join others in making the target's life a pure, living hell, 24/7, 365 days a year.
Please help these innocent victims of America's most ignored crime
Please consider signing the Petition To President Obama, asking him to instruct the Justice Department's Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) to offer assistance to ALL stalking victims, regardless of how many stalkers are involved.
