Is gang stalking prohibited under law? Yes, it may not be spelled out as “gang stalking” per se but the methods and tactics perpetrators use against their victims or targets is not allowed by law.
Please find various laws that gang stalkers violate. This information is not offered as legal or prescriptive advice and you need to check your local laws for specificity. Your state statutes should provide similar provisions as the ones provided herein.
1. Federal RICO law – 18 USC Chapter 96 if racketeering is involved; there must be some sort of enterprise, system or group of people, who conduct illegal activity for profit.
2. Stalking laws – Wisconsin Statute 940.32; you would have to go after each individual stalker which, as we know, is difficult to do if the individuals doing the stalking rotate and change and if you can bother to get law enforcement to take you seriously.
3. Harassment laws – Wisconsin Statute 947.013; you would have to prove a “course of conduct” meaning a pattern, or repeated acts that harass or intimidate a person and, a more serious subsection that can get the perpetrator(s) into more legal trouble is whether you can show a “credible threat” meaning an actual threat would have to be made against you. But you can’t bring a private cause of action, in short you can’t gain damages (receive a monetary award) from the harassment.
4. Trespass to land – Wisconsin Statute 943.13. Even if you are a tenant of property and you did not give permission for someone to be on your property it still qualifies. This statute can help if you can actually show the trespass, such as the stalkers actually entering onto private property or attaching eavesdropping or surveillance equipment onto the land.
5. Trespass to the person/
Assault, Battery, False imprisonment.
Battery – Wisconsin Statute 940.19, you must prove bodily harm without your consent.
False imprisonment – Wisconsin Statute 940.30, you must prove someone who knew they didn’t have the lawful authority intentionally confined or restrained you without your consent.
6. Invasion of privacy – Wisconsin Statute 942.08; you would have to prove a person entered a place where you would expect privacy, or entered private property, and watched you or installed any surveillance device on said property.
7. Defamation – Wisconsin Statute 942.01; you would have to prove someone communicated something to a 3rd party, of a defamatory nature which was untrue, without good motive, without justification and was not otherwise privileged (meaning you did not give consent to the communication and the person communicating the defamation had no absolute privilege to do so.)
If the person can show they have a conditional privilege to communicate the defamatory material it may not be deemed defamatory.
Slander, spoken defamation, requires the testimony of 2 other persons that they heard and understood the oral statement as being defamatory. Libel is written defamation, or a published false statement.
