Lately I’ve been experiencing some rather strange occurrences. It seems I’m sometimes being followed. Since it’s been 3 or 4 times now, I’ve decided to discuss it here. The exact number is hard to know because, similar to when one is being gaslighted, one writes off the first couple instances as belonging to the just-can’t-be category.
It’s surprisingly sophisticated. I seem to be followed by teams, both in front and behind me. When someone is walking in front of you and keeping pace with you (by sidewise glances or whatever) there is something different about their walking. It is not like a person walking purposefully somewhere or even like someone meandering. This will last for blocks with the distance between us hardly varying. Or an individual will pass and then fall back, repeatedly, again over blocks. Or an individual will still be in the same relative distance after my spending time in a store.
More troubling is purposely changing my route and then finding, after a few blocks on the new street, that the same individual has appeared once again in front of me at about the same distance. So there has to be someone behind directing the forward party. Is there some kind of throat mike that picks up outwardly inaudible speech (don’t ask me why I ask this)?
Their leader seemingly is a middle aged man, with short brown hair, of medium height (5′ 9-10″), medium build with a broad face and smoked glasses. He also seems to be something of a hothead.
I have photos of certain of these individuals which I have snail mailed around.
Just for the record, as someone who studies and deals with sociopaths I work very hard at never telling myself not to be paranoid — so I’m immune to that charge. Only one or two of these individuals however struck me as probable sociopaths.
This has only taken place (with one exception) on the few days of the week when I have a predictable routine and route of travel. So that means there had been unobtrusive observation earlier.
Why I would deserve such sophisticated (and expensive) attention makes no sense. But there it is.
