This is one of the best resources I have come across in the years I have been victimized by and studying gang stalking. That being said, I have some critical opinions and thoughts about the book. Firstly, David Lawson's Cause Stalking was flawed in several respects. However, he did identify cells of individuals operating territorially and in communication with each other nationwide. He also properly noted that these group's foot soldiers are low-level criminals often engaged in this as a sadistic sport. Bailey is correct in noting that only the government has the resources to carry out gang stalking in its manifestation seen over the past generation. However, rather than viewing this as mere "governing through crime" as Natapoff who he cites describes the related snitch system, the government is coopting social forces within the criminal element in a Nazi/Soviet-bloc fashion. The government is facilitating these forces with ample institutional forces from its own ranks (cops, firefighters, mailmen, etc.). He is missing an obvious thread here. The Washington agenda has always sought to destroy the hire echelon criminals such as the mob and cults (he discusses cults). The informant/snitch system from which the bulk of gang stalking members are drawn operates within the territories of Washington's enemies, and, has an obvious nexus to higher echelon criminals. It is easy to see a civil rights conspiracy in which the government argues that these gang stalking groups are terrorist organizations controlled by higher criminal structures including traditional organized crime. In fact, my phone discussions with the National Center for Victims of Crime in Washington, D.C. resulted in my being told that the only "validated" cases of gang stalking were in fact performed by "mafia personnel". Indeed, I am personally aware of numerous cases of gang stalking performed by traditional organized crime in the New York City area. Bailey does not realize that criminals, albeit highly infiltrated by informants, have their own paralel stalking lists. Much of what the government does in relation to targets of organized crime and other conspiracies who end up on gang stalking lists, is to mimic the criminals behavior through government theatre. Bailey misses this point as much as LCN. I do believe ultimate responsibility is with the government. Gang stalking is a government directed activity leading to dehumanizing conditions and death-i.e., it is legally Genocide. Also, through my contacts with over 100 legitimate cases of gang stalking, I believe that there are a strong minority of cases that are "generational". One such sub-category is the gang stalking of individuals with family histories of outspoken anti-semitism. This is a sub-category in which traditional organized crime killed and derailed the lives of many victims through an arrangement with the Jewish Community-especially the vehement ultra-orthadox factions. In a fascist, COINTELPRO-style manner, this has to be looked at as the government acting in a highly Machiavellian fashion, using splitting, tripple-crossing, and all manner of deceit to achieve its end, in true Lennonist fashion. I also believe that many readers would appreciate some background on Bailey.
