Barbara K. -- Yes, all 50 states have anti-stalking laws; however, they do not have enough "teeth" to them, and in many cases, are not enforced/investigated strictly enough.

Thank you, Carole for this very important petition, and hope thousands sign it! Everyone (I think) knows of a situation or experience either with someone they know, a family member, a friend, that has in some way...is or knows a person who was or currently is being stalked. In my case, it was one of my children...who was being stalked. The laws are lenient in TX...and one must have PROOF of a person stalking another. In other words, the damage is done, before the stalker can be prosecuted. This must change, as lives depend on it. (Kinda reminiscent of a restraining order..., if you know what I mean...)
 

Just Carole (341)
Friday September 24, 2010, 1:38 pm

So true, Re.

As in this case, it is often anything BUT trivial, and when the obsession becomes too overwhelming for the stalker, it usually ends in grievous pyschological and physical harm -- or death -- to the innocent victim.

Having been the subject of past stalkers, I can attest to the fact that it is NOT a compliment. It is a haunting intrusion of privacy, with constant worry for well-being or unwanted surprise. Your everyday existence, in effect, is being controlled by an uninvited and imbalanced snoop.

Carole, my honour to sign #69.
I was stalked by a guy whom worked opposite my part time job in a major shopping centre when I was a fulltime student,18yrs old ...this guy used to turn up at parties I attended with my then boyfriend on the other side of the City,he used to pop up on the side of my passenger door of the car when I went to get in it after being in classes all day.. I used to have a male classmate and finally security walk me to my car, he sat outside my parents house...oh endless cases...and attending my part time job knowing he was only a few feet away from me...I ended up quitting my job which I loved.
My father approached him, the police were involved...it was scary, horrendous and lasted 6 mths.
My cousin had a stalker for several years when she was in her early 20's, he committed suicide after finding out she got engaged.
He wrote in his letter he commited this act due to her not acknowledging him enough.
She has never gotten over this.
My heart bleeds for Jodi, and others like her, and of course their families and loved ones left behind.
Thank you to all whom signed!
As noted by many above me this is an extremely important issue.

I just got home, and pulled up your link, Carole about Justin Thurber! OMG! The story is on an appropriate site, "pysih", for there are no words to describe the horror of what he did to this beautiful young woman over the course of four hours before her death. I clash with my emotions in wondering WHY this happens, in the world that we know and speak of.No ONE deserves to be stalked, and frightened by these 'people'. (Term used loosely, here). My deepest sympathies to her family and loved ones. May he ROT in hell!

They had, on file, at least 20 reports from other women, alleging that he stalked them, visited them at work, attempted kidnapping, threatened, text messaged, in one case -- pulled the victim through a window and held her for 3 hours!

Thank you so much for posting this! I to have been a victim of a stalker, and you are so right when you say it is NOT a compliment. This problem is constantly over looked and we need to take action to help prevent this.

My situation started when I was 16, I did not live with parents or family in high-school-I lived completely on my own, which made it so much easier for my stalker to get away with what ever he wanted. It also made it difficult for the police to take me seriously! No matter what he did to me they would alway's say "unless they catch him physically in action of these crimes, they can not prove anything". They would not even let me put a restraining order on my stalker, because there was not enough evidence to prove it was indeed him. This person controlled every part of my life at the time, he found a way to sneak in my house and watch me sleep, he would take picture's of me and post them through out my tiny little town, he would break into my house & leave clue's that he was there(very dirty clues), he would break into my car, house or high school locker room to steal only my cheerleading bloomers/uniform, he would appear at every one of my cheer or school functions, no matter where I was he was always there.
I could go on and on about what he did to me, but honestly I cant even repeat some of his actions without feeling scared, sad or even ashamed.
I had the proof, I had numerous witness' but it did not matter the Police would not do nothing! I still to this day find myself looking over my shoulder or stressing out until I know for sure that every door is double locked and every window is fully covered, I have a huge fear of uncovered windows now.

My heart goes out to Jodi, her family and any victim of this horrible crime. How many women are going to have to have their lives ruined or be murdered, until we all stand up and fight back?

Thank you Just Carole for getting this out, it needs so much more attention than what it gets.

My family has been victims of a stalker. It destroyed our peace of mind and sence of security. We all had nightmares and my children were afraid to sleep alone. We couldn't leave any member of the family home alone at any given time. We always had to be in public in pairs. Our teens could not go to school functions alone even if going to meet with friends. None of us could walk the neighborhood. Our family suffered great financial hardship as I lost my home business and we had to constantly spend money on means of protection...everything from motion detection lighting around the peremiter of our house, changing our phone numbers, changing our mailing information, and moving to a new location. There was so much devastation it is impossible to relay here.
 

Just Carole (341)
Saturday September 25, 2010, 8:52 am

So true, Tonya . . . and it is the epitome of self-absorption, to think that one person's prurient interests are more important than their victims' to the point of reducing that other person's (and their family's) life to being a disposable object.

Extremely dangerous and a violation of basic human rights. Law enforcement agencies MUST take this more seriously!

Your saying it's okay for that stalker to keep doing what he's doing right up until he kills someone? Death is the proof you need? Some thing is VERY wrong there! What about the victims civil rights and her right to be protected? This is horrible!

Even without an anti-stalking law, I don't understand a justice system that would allow a dangerous crazy to harass someone for 10 years. This tragedy was also a failure of the police, the courts, and a weak and underfunded mental healthcare system.

Carole, I cannot thank you enough for spotting my petition and starting another one on this site, where it will surely get the signatures we at "Jodi's Voice" desperately need!!!!!!! "Jodi's Law" is only recognized and enforced in KS and NM, but 2 states are not enough!!! Our goal is to keep fighting until each and every state (and foreign countries) adopts and enforces Jodi's Law!!! I would also like to thank each and every person that commented and signed on this site, your kind words of encouragement confirm that good people truly do exist in this otherwise evil world. I'm SO happy more more people are getting to see her BEAUTIFUL smile!!!!

I would like to ask you all to sign the original petition in addition to this one, as I am having trouble getting the word out. Jodi's beautiful mother has already signed the petition, as did the author of "Jodi's Law" herself. PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE BOTH PETITIONS, THE MORE SIGNATURES WE OBTAIN THE BETTER CHANCE WE HAVE AT GETTING JODI'S LAW PASSED NATIONWIDE!!!! The following is a link to the original petition, please sign and share this one as well!!!

There are several bill both state and federal with SB 414. I am not signing something I cannot read for myself and especially not on a food bill. Anti stalking needs to be on it's own. Nor should I have to search. Next time bring the bill in it's entirety before us I myself resent feeling misled even if that may not by the case!

Understanding human behavior, is very challenging. I realize that this will not STOP stalkers, but , just might benefit us to recognize them.

How was this allowed to go on for TEN years? My God, and then she was killed? This nonsense has got to stop and be stopped in its tracks BEFORE tragedy strikes, not after. This is similar to a restraining order. Nothing seems to be able to be done UNTIL something terrible happens. Thank you for the petition. I signed, gladly.

Thanks, Signed and Noted. So many human predators out there, we Need more protective laws passed and enforced. Teaching kids to be Street Smart and Self Defense sometimes aren't enough.
We need to extinguish the psychos!

People that stalk have severe mental problems whether the object of their stalking/obsession is a complete stranger or a celeb or an ex partner! For such an activity to carry on unabated for ten years before escalating to murder is a sad reflection of the lack of importance given to either the crime or the mental state of the perpetrator. The inbuilt inertia in dealing with many of these crimes is rather like the deniers of global warming who wish it where not so and spend much money and energy trying to convince themselves other wise! Something like the police chiefs who spend time generating statistics to convince us that crime is going down when they know the reality is they are overburdened with it! There is a general tendency to shy away from the difficult to solve! It is after all much easier to "catch" the generally law abiding from their number plates and similar identifiers when say involved in some minor traffic violation! All they have to do is review the CCTV and send a parking ticket etc! Catching and prosecuting a stalker requires many hours of evidence and behind the scenes involvement even if the victim has given the police chapter and verse on the identity and incidents. Add to that mix the woefully inadequate mental health provision worldwide and one has what amounts to a stalker's charter!

I was totally horrified when I read what had happened to Jodi. Just last month, my 16 year old daughter confessed to me that she had noticed someone who kept on stalking her and it made her feel so unsafe and nervous. As a parent, I am afraid if Jodi's story will happen to my daughter. As of now, I am teaching her ways on how to protect herself if any assault or emergency will arise. The most important thing that I provide her right now is a panic button alert on her cell phone. How I wish Jodi had also this kind of mobile application. It could somehow help her during the time when she was assaulted. Just check out http://safekidzone.com/

Thank you all SO much for signing and sharing our petitions for Jodi's Law!! I have tears in my eyes from reading all of your amazing comments, you have no idea how much this means to me. I have to show this to Jodi's mom and aunt, they will be so touched by your kind words and prayers for Jodi. All of you further confirm that i'm doing the right thing, and that my efforts to get this law passed are not in vain. That means the world to me. :)

Please remember to also stop by and sign the other petition for Jodi's Law, we can use all the help we can get!! Here is the link: http://criminaljustice.change.org/petitions/view/pass_jodis_law_sb_414_anti-stalking_legislation

Thank you all again, you are angels on Earth!!

Organized gang stalking is secret murder,genocide. Anybody anytime could be targeted by these extreme criminal groups.Sign this petition to save a life.
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/222/817/996/stop-and-criminize-organized-group-stalking/
Here is why, you can sign ananymously.
Organized gang stalking can involve a group in the hundreds to thousands harassing a single person or family 24/7. The victim is stalked en masse by car, foot, bike, and air in order to alienate and isolate the victim. The goals of gang stalking are to: provoke the victim to assault someone and get arrested; make the victim seem delusional/ mentally ill (see "gaslighting"); make the victim so depressed that they become suicidal. Tactics used are relentless color harassment, noise harassment, air harassment, hand signals, electronic monitoring inside the home and car (complete invasion of privacy; redirecting of phone calls, emails, postal mail), workplace mobbing, "directed conversation" and innuendo, erratic/ aggressive driving, bizarre/rude behavior in the community, non-lethal electronic plus/microwave/laser laser guns to cause death of leukaemia,blind and cancer, and much more. Police,security guys,and fire dept. some times medical professionals, are often involved in the stalking so the victim feels like they have nowhere to turn to, so the public naturally feel what they do is legal and right,and makes it hard to prove. Many are forced to insane and suicide before even being able to figure out what's going on to their life. Most are normal people just like you and me. And once one is flagged as a target by this kind of group stalking, there is no end of it until the victim is cornered to death. Fooling and manoeuvring common mass citizens into this stalking crime is the dirtiest part.Most public allured into this stalking crime have no clue what they are involved in, by some big lies like 'patriotism', something political and religious, because they know these are the two things likely arising strong emotions. If anybody did anything that has been proved wrong or crime, we have laws and legal procedures to use, nobody should be given the chance to play such a super power beyond the law to ruin and kill others.

Anyone who believes in what the founders of the country were fighting for must stand up! We must let the world know of how our human rights, freedoms, and lives are abused 24/7 here. Our beautiful countries must be cleared from these extreme hatred criminals, and undergo public condemnation for the tortures they had organized against humanity. What they do is a modern covert genocide, which they will not get away with.

This equals long term plotted murder. This is extreme criminal activity that is becoming more common more serious with modern science and technology, so it needs to be outlawed ASAP before more get murdered in such a way.

Please paste the URL http://www.thepetitionsite.com/222/817/996/stop-and-criminize-organized-group-stalking/ to your social network to help collecting more signatures, and to raise the social awareness because many victims have no clue what is going on for years, many public joined the stalking without knowing what they are really involved in, maybe just allured by some 'glorious' sounding big lies such as 'patriotism'.

Because it is outside of the law, one could be killed this way simply because of a personal revenge. Anybody could be a target anytime. Today is others, tomorrow can be you and your family. Let's stand up now to make it a better world for all of us, our children, and their children, give them a world with order and rights.
