It's not just celebrities who have stalkers.

But in Los Angeles you must be a celebrity to receive JUSTICE

by NAOMI COLEMAN, femail.co.uk

Stalking is on the increase, say scientists, and it's not just celebrities who are under threat.

New research reveals that one in five women and one in ten men in the UK aged between 16 and 30 fall victim to some form of the phenomenon.

And, claim scientists, stalkers can now be split into five distinct groups: the rejected stalker, the intimacy stalker, the incompetent stalker, the resentful stalker and - most dangerous of all - the predatory stalker

Public figures stalked recently include pop star Madonna, TV star Zoe Ball and supermodel Naomi Campbell.

But the psychiatrist behind the research, Professor Paul Mullen, of Monash University, Australia, claims ordinary people are now more at risk than once thought.

He blames the rise in celebrity culture and social changes such as greater instability in relationships, more difficulty in finding partners and the rise of a blame culture in society.

'We define everything by our relationships,' he said. 'But there are many people who are socially isolated and rely on fabrication or delusion for their core identity.'

Men and women aged between 16 and 30 were most at risk. One in five women and one in ten men between these ages had experienced some form of stalking.

This compares with 12 per cent of women and four per cent of men aged between 45 and 60.

Professor Mullen said:'Those figures seem odd because obviously the older group have lived longer and would have been expected to have had more experience of relationship break-ups and things like stalking.

'The high rate among the younger age group tends to indicate that rates are rising, and pretty rapidly too.'

Professor Mullen suggests stalkers fall into five distinct groups. They are:

• The rejected stalker: The rejected stalker cannot accept that a relationship is over and swings between dependency on the other person, pleading for a reconciliation and flying into a rage at being rejected.
This is the most common type of stalker. They are usually male, and account for about half of all stalking cases.

• The intimacy stalker: These stalkers often target celebrities or people they do not know. They fix on someone and believe they are in love with them. They also think in time their love will be reciprocated. This group accounts for around 5 per cent of cases are are more likely to be women.

• The incompetent stalker: This type of stalker is usually socially incompetent, chauvinistic or a misogynist who believe they are entitled to a relationship with a woman. Although often short-term, stalking is characterised by awkward pleadings or aggressive demands.

• The resentful stalker: Unlike other types, these stalkers behave deliberately to frighten their victim. It is often motivated by a desire for revenge.
The stalker targets the person who has hurt them directly - or a representative of that group or person - for instance, a boss, a woman or a certain ethnic minority. This accounts for a minority of cases and is often rooted in the workplace.

• The predatory stalker: This is the least common and most dangerous type of stalker - the category that sex offenders fall into.
They follow their victims, observe their behaviour and gather information in order to plan a real attack. They are exclusively men and stalk victims for a feeling of power, control and sexual excitement.

What to do if you are being stalked

• If you think you are being stalked, there are many options available to you. Taking some simple measures should make you feel more physically and emotionally able to deal with the situation.

• It is now possible to bring a criminal prosecution against a stalker under the 1997 Protection of Harassment Act. If you intend to go to the police, you'll need to provide evidence. Make sure you keep a diary of every incident, tape any phone calls and if you can, take photographs or video your stalker.

• If you fear you are bring stalked tighten up security at home, in transit and at work. Change the locks to your home and install a burglar alarm. Ask a male friend to record an answering machine message on your home phone line.
When walking home alone, vary your route. If you are being harassed at work, ask a colleague to answer your phone for you. Always be wary about giving out personal details when dealing with credit card services, internet chat rooms and people you meet.

• Finally, there are many support groups offering emotional help. Speaking to a qualified counsellor can make you feel more empowered and increase your level of confidence when dealing with a stalker

We see local news stories and national headlines about stalking when the crime escalates into murder, but they are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. According to a November 2011 study released by the CDC, millions of women (1 in 6) and men (1 in 19) have experienced stalking in their lifetime. That's 19.3 million women and 5.9 million men.

Two-thirds of female victims are stalked by a current or former intimate partner. That's what happened to Alexis Moore, but unlike other survivors her stalker wasn't just an angry and physically abusive ex; he was a technology expert and private investigator who not only cyberstalked her but systematically destroyed her career and personal life and effectively ruined her credit history.

A contributing writer for About.com, Moore authored a series of nine articles in 2009 on the growing prevalence of cyberstalking and included her own story as an example.

Tonight, that story will be featured on Investigation Discovery, part of the Discovery Channel network, on the show Stalked: Somebody's Watching at 10:30 pm ET in the episode "Six Degrees of Separation."

In a related article for the Women's Media Center, Moore describes why tonight's show -- and other forms of media coverage -- are so critical. Each story increases public awareness and spurs local, state and national government agencies to reform domestic violence laws and update legislation to address the growing threat of cyberstalking.

When Moore shared her story on About.com Women's issues three years ago, she closed by saying, "I hope with all my heart that you or your loved ones are never the target of a cyberstalker. But sadly, the odds are that some of you will be."

With the average American woman facing a 1 in 6 chance of being stalked at some point in her life, Moore is unfortunately right.

Judge To Woman Sexually Assaulted By Cop: ‘When You Blame Others, You Give Up Your Power To Change’

Judge To Woman Sexually Assaulted By Cop: ‘When You Blame Others, You Give Up Your Power To Change’ | Stalking is a CRIME! | Scoop.it
Last summer, a drunk Arizona police officer named Robb Gary Evans drove himself to a bar, flashed his badge to avoid paying cover at the door, and then walked up behind a woman, put his hand up her skirt, and ran his fingers over her genitals.

 

MY STORY

By rackingmuck

 

I have been stalked constantly by my neighbor for a year. He is under the delusion we are "meant to be together". An all too common stalker mentality. He is constantly drunk and when conducting surveillance on me forgets what he is doing and peers directly into my windows. Several weeks ago I realized I was in serious danger. He came up from behind and grabbed my breasts. As I was struggling to get away I remembered he told me at one point he had a GUN

 

I went to the LA Superior Court the next day and got a TRO - temporary restraining order. Oh those three week before the hearing for a permanent RO were glorious. I was not in terror, I could function. I prepared my case for the permanent RO complete with witness testimony, many threatening texts I had received. Although not overly confident I thought I would succeed in getting the RO. BOY WAS I WRONG.

 

It seems the LA Superior Court has had to make cuts. Now there is but one judge who holds your life in her hands. JUDGE CAROL BOAS GOODSON. Judge Goodson is well known in Los Angels for always making headlines as she is the go-to judge for celebrities requiring permanent RO's. I knew I was in trouble when she starting insulting me, acted completely dismissive and yelled at me "next time call the police. Denied"

 

I have since learned this is standard operating procedure for JUDGE CAROL GOODSON. She has one standard for celebrities - always grant. One for the rest of us 99% - always DENY. So I am back in the land of terror. My neighbor, having won a case he expected to loose, has been drinking since 10 am yesterday.
