The Targeted Individuals Phenomenon

Updated on September 14, 2015

Kimberley's mind sparks with ideas. She has published two books; Spring Heeled Jack & Kiss of Death: My Smoking Phobia

Targeted individuals are people who believe that they are being stalked by multiple people, on behalf of an unknown entity.

Targeted individuals are victims of gang stalking, which is similar to gas-lighting. The term gas-lighting, taken from the title of the 1944 film ‘Gaslight’, focusses on bringing about mental anguish through systematic ‘mind games’. These mind games can cause a person to doubt their sanity.

Targeted individuals become increasingly aware of their surroundings, and the behaviour of people around them. All too easily, they can be described as mentally ill, or schizophrenic. However, targeted individuals often dispute this, explaining that stalkers are trying to induce symptoms of mental illness, rendering complaints about stalker’s behaviour as useless.

Some typical gang stalking behaviours present as;

Mimicking the victims behaviour
Coughing or sniffing loudly
Repeating conversations that the victim has had before
Laughing at and ridiculing the victim

There are many other ways of targeting people, including;

Using technology to create ‘voices’ in victims heads
Messing with target’s possessions within their own homes
Spreading rumours to discredit individuals
Making living conditions unbearable

Some targeted individuals take to blogging to document their daily struggles. They post evidence in order to record what is happening to them, and also to seek support from sympathetic online contacts.

Why are targets chosen?

Mystery surrounds the reasons why some people may be chosen as targets of organised mobbing.

Strong suspicions are based on the fact that victims may be;

People who have made a complaint against local or central governments
Subjects of revenge attacks (ex-partners, criminals that they have reported)

Terrifyingly for the victims, there is often no reason at all for their selection as a targeted individual.

Who are gang stalkers?

Gang stalkers may or may not be known to the target of the abuse. It is believed that the perpetrators are in the pay of whoever has ordered the gang staking to take place.

The secretive nature of gang stalking means that, by default, it is nigh on impossible for victims to find out who is stalking them, and why they have been targeted. Each victim will have a different view on this, and the many online accounts point to differing organisations; the government, the illuminati possibly even extra-terrestrial beings.


Hypervigilance is the practice of continually being alert and seeking profound danger in everyday life. According to Dr Heather Stone (Ph.D.) ‘Hypervigilance is a mindset that over-estimates the potential for danger at any given moment’.

If not thought to be mentally ill, targeted individuals may be accused of being hypervigilant.

However, the targeted individual community believe that these diagnoses may be used purely to hide the fact that gang stalking is taking place.

It is far easier to accuse the victims than uncover untoward mass mobbing activity!

Support for Targeted Individuals

For the victims of gang stalking, the trauma presents a real danger to their lives, each and every day.

      Please help the victims of the National Institute of Justice's "intelligent surveillance" research. The NIJ is using our taxpayer dollars to violate our constitutional rights, recklessly endanger our lives, and torture us 24/7. Senator Kaine told me that this program funds Newport News Police Department and Virginia state police. Both are required to have a signed informed consent form for each human subject. The NIJ follows the common rule. Citizens need to request the name and contact number for the IRB as well as the grant administrator. We need to ask our senators to defund the NIJ for failure to follow the "common rule" and for violations of our constitutional rights as well as the torture and murder of thousands of innocent citizens. The perps are state and local police. The funding is the NIJ. They must allow us to opt out. The NIJ are required by law to pay for our attorney fees, medical expenses, and any change in financial position as well as punitive damages! I now have cancer throughout my body as a direct result of this technology. They are to blame! Senators Kaine & Warner told me it was state & local police. I believe them after I caught cops leaving my home using a key. Karen Rodriguez, VA DCJS, admitted to me in a letter.

      You're not crazy, but you're not wholly well either. I had an experience with this myself but doubted my perceptions. I took a tenting trip in the mountains by myself and while most of the symptoms faded (I stopped believing I was being 'targeted'), the voices and clicking sounds continued.

      I spent some time writing my thoughts in a notebook, reviewing things in my mind that I had learned previously. The decision I made before returning home was to experiment with iodine supplementation.

      About a week after beginning the treatment, all the symptoms began to fade away. I no longer felt watched, targeted or like people were messing with me. I have no idea why this worked for me. It could have been placebo, but my initial hypothesis was that the iodine could displace bromide and flouride (from breads and treated water) that might be interfering with my nervous system. It was just a theory and worth a try.

      I continue to take iodine and have added fluvoxamine. Fluvoxamine is a powerful nerve growth factor stimulant. My hope is that undergoing a remedial therapy with it will work to repair any damage done to avoid neuropathies and further issues later in life.

      Please keep your goal of being healthy and happy as your number one priority. Being 'right', 'not crazy' (no one in this world is perfectly sane) etc. might feel satisfactory but it will do nothing to help you find peace and contentment. Good luck everyone.

      ""Targeted Individuals" without exception are suffering from delusions caused by schizophrenia." Maybe they are, but are you saying people are never bullied, stalked, harassed, or preyed upon because I beg to differ.

      In YESHUA's Service 

      2 years ago

      Info for TIs. This what is going on. The Secret Socities that goes by many names like (Illuminati, the Elite, the New World Order) have for decades been working on their global takeover of the planet. In the US in 2001, their plan to takeover the gov't that had failed in the 60s (thanks to jfk), suceeded on 9-11. Bush and his family has always been apart of NWO. Once they got the presidency, their bulldogs that were developed from the smuggling of the Nazis into the US, who are responsible for starting wars around the globe for the NWO enrichment, and continued on many of their human experimentation. They just gave it new names like MK Ultra, and the CIA brought their Vietnam program home.

      The Nazi global agenda has not changed much, just a bunch of name changes. That is why Hilters book is their bible. That is my the changes in the US follow Hitler, like the FEMA Camps resembling the Germany death camps, why Obama has a youth brigade like Hitler did, why he uses terms like "the Fatherland" referring to US like Hitler used, and the list of examples is too lengthy to type.

      With 9-11 the CIA took a new name called, Department of Homeland Security. Yes, this was the plan all along, for the Patriot Act was written somewhere between the late 50s to mid 60s, and it had provision for the development of DHS in it. The Federal employees transfered into the new DHS were all from the CIA. Through lies and propaganda that have snowed us all.

      At sometime the NWO decided their agenda progress a lot faster fighting secret silient wars in other countries and on individuals. Now with the attack on Individuals advanced greatly when those in the Secret Socities positions of power discovered the Radio Frequency technology. This was dicovered when the Russians used it on the US Embassy in Moscow to spy, listen and track their movements. The US didn't know of it or didn't know its capabilities, until the embassy staff were all getting cancer. After they would replace the staff, the new employees would get cancer too. So this caused an investgation which led to the discovery. But they choose to keep it secret from the American public. It turned into DEWs, this is what is used in the war on individuals. Sending high mega and ghietahertz frequency into the homes and bodies of those they have targeted.

      Since the NWO had the presidency federalize all police and sheriff in the US, after the 9-11 event they caused for they could takeover the US Govt using their terrorst propaganda that we had to give up our rights for secruity. It formulated one big conglomurate police force under DHS aka CIA (dont forget how they were started). Who developed Community Policing based on the Stasis-style of policing. In 2005, DHS hired a former Stasis named Markco Wolfe. His specialty was turning the public against one another. When Napoleano was in DHS, she went around the US courting law enforcement to partner with them. Promising them a lot of grant money, the latest grab & technology, & a strong backing. It was no coincidence that the courtship happened in 2008 - 2010 when the NWO caused the global mortage crisis which caused the economic crisis. Law enforcement needed money. This is also why police brutality is up, and they don't go to jail for murders that are caught on tape of Americas black youth, etc.

      DHS gave USDOJ the Community Policing plan, and they inturn sent it to local law enforcement in America. This is what TIs erroneously call Organized Gang Stalking. The people, your neighbors, stores, dr, attys, utilities services, etc., all have been recruited in the name of fighting terrorism, but in fact was always intended to be used to destroy the US. For the BIBLE is true a house divided against itself cannot stand.

      Research like cia & vietnam, and other things said here. Watch former governor Jesse Ventura, former FBI Dirctor Ted Gundersun, youtube videos. Read Debra Dupre, articles on Targeted Individual. This should open up this pandora's box for you can find out what THEIR ultimate plan is for all humanity. Just remember JESUS the Messiah still reigns, and GOD THE FATHER is in complete control.

      Reality Check 

      3 years ago

      "Targeted Individuals" without exception are suffering from delusions caused by schizophrenia. The whole mythology that has sprouted online regarding the methods by which they are "targeted" only serves to deepen their delusions, and they form a type of community in which they each feed of each other's delusions. It's really sad, especially because the very symptoms of their illness cause them to reinforce their delusions and push them away from reality.
