I’m asking for assistance in getting to the bottom of a situation that has blighted my life for some time. There are enough people reading this who know me and this situation. For some years, I have been plagued by a character assassination campaign. Some, who I feel know me perfectly well, have from one day to the next chosen to face the wall rather than acknowledge me or seemed even very frightened of me. I have no idea what motivates them. The situation is truly insane, which is why I believe there is a psychopathic spider at the center of this web, currently probably the owner of the DPA/DPL license tags (I suspect, but don’t know for a fact, that these are NYPD tags), or perhaps a psychopathic group therapy client of my ex’s therapist. I’ve faced psychopathic tag teaming, gang stalking since the start of my work on psychopathy (though it actually started slightly earlier with personal conflict with particular psychopaths). The fact that the allegation(s) is/are apparently convincing is meaningless. Psychopaths are called confidence artists for a reason, they inspire confidence and the truth is irrelevant to them.
I don’t know whether these are all related, but first I noticed that members of an ex’s therapy group, suddenly become afraid of me. Some time later, I understand my ex had plastic surgery, becoming unrecognizable. I have no idea what she looks like. One night after thinking I might be in her presence (the rest of the group had been there) my wife and I were awoken around 3 am by two fax polling calls, from a number that turned out to be her personal number. She made fax polling calls to various phone numbers linked to me for over ten years. (Further, if interested, To the de Blasio administration, I hereby volunteer to identify NYPD whiteshirt psychopaths, gratis.)
I had nothing to do with any cause of her choosing to have plastic surgery. If she thought so, her therapists should have hospitalized her until she recovered from that psychotic break, if that was the cause. However, they are scared of me also. Once my wife and I were seated next to them in a restaurant and from their panicked glances at each other one would have thought Satan had sat near them. ‘Was it something I said? Wait, I hadn’t spoken to them in some 15 years. Oh, waiter . . .” There were other occurrences, though very rare, because I only ran in to them once or twice a year around our shared neighborhood. However, it culminated in 2012, when the husband (both are therapists) — well, I’m not inside his head, so let me give several possibilities — when the husband sought to menace/threaten me by lunging his car at me from a standing start all the while in the parking lane, or perhaps it was an impulsive murder attempt, or perhaps he always does jackrabbit starts and drives in the parking lane whenever possible and enjoys scattering pedestrians, I don‘t know. Clearly the lad was confused, so rather than having him arrested I had an attorney write a letter, my wish being to find out the motive for his bizarre behavior not his punishment. But nothing came of it. (See, For the record (private message transmitted publicly) and the de Blasio link above.)
In 2002, Sue Hudgins, the COO of PaineWebber’s Municipal Security Group (later UBS’s), came into a kitchen, stopped when she saw me and said “Something stinks in here,” and left. From then on she only glared at me in seeming disgust, though previously we had gotten along well, usually sharing small friendly conversations when we ran into each other.
Researchers into family life and psychopathy might be interested in interviewing Ms. Hudgins. I believe her father and at least two of her husbands were/are psychopaths. The children of psychopaths are very easy to recognize, there’s a constellation of deeply humiliated personality traits.
A witness that I was friendly with, said she’d try to find out the whyfors of Ms. Hudgins’ behavior towards me. Shortly she stopped talking to me also. ‘Huh, what??” I subsequently got into some trouble at work threatening legal action. At the time my father had said that I was attempting to accomplish with a jerk when a steady pull was called for. Since then my father has passed away and I still am in the dark. I had told him that I didn’t see why anyone would necessarily ever come forward. People don’t like involving themselves in possible legal complications, and people seem instinctively reluctant to involve themselves in anything messy or fantastical. And of course, now the situation is 10 – 20 times more fantastical. Also if the lie is big enough, the accused is essentially considered guilty until proven innocent (“No empath cares anything about proofs“, “Of course we shall never prove that he is responsible for it; but what does that matter?”, Psychopathic character assassination and murder-by-suicide as depicted in Orwell’s Burmese Days).
This is not a small thing. It’s like being in a boxing match with a ghost. We’re social animals, the feeling that the world is a thin layer of crust over lava underneath is crippling (see, From Country of Liars: Character Assassination). The psychopath survivor blogs talk of difficulty in concentrating and/or becoming hypervigilant in response.
In 2013 I entered into an academic program to move into a new direction and assure myself and my loved ones of financial security in my old age. At first it went very well, I found myself striding confidently into an eagerly awaited future, just like young people are supposed to do. I am not young of course, but it was a new beginning. But then my concentration started sliding, as the split concentration and the worry reasserted itself.
Hypervigilance is not all bad. I notice things that are “wrong” unconsciously. Regarding that car that had almost slammed me into a divider (see, Should I be concerned), I hadn’t taken my eye off of it since it entered the highway, something was just “wrong” about the way it was being driven.
Plus it once enabled me to stop a violent mugging in progress (Oct. 2011). I was driving west on Central Park North approaching Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard when I noticed two people in the dusk walking with one very close behind. Something seemed wrong. Then I saw them walking side by side and relaxed, thinking, ‘ah, boyfriend and girlfriend.’ However when they started merry-go-rounding around a contested bag, my response was, ‘oh, so that’s what’s going down,” and was able to respond immediately.
Now, the sequence above took place in my peripheral vision and the peripheral part of my mind. My main mind was concentrating on driving, paying attention to the other cars around me, planning my route, etc. However, once my peripheral mind realized what was happening, my main mind was ready to go, with no uptake of the slack and no confusion. The problem then was how to affect the outcome of the situation down the block which could be over in seconds. So I started gunning the engine, honking the horn, flashing the lights all to convey onrushing trouble for the perp. As I jammed on the brakes and turned to drive onto the curb, the mugger dropped his hold and ran back against the direction of traffic. The woman said that he had kept looking back and forth at me on the way and then at her and the bag, until fleeing. Fortunately my plan worked, for he had already slashed her in the neck with a knife and if another attempt had connected with an artery, things could have turned out very badly. (See, Should I worry about this (I don’t remember why I put the account there).)
However one needs to be able to concentrate fully in life. (After being laid off I also tried teaching myself piano and also guitar, but I couldn’t do it. I’m a professionally trained actor and singer, so these skills could have amounted to livelihoods.) The stress and split concentration affects all aspects of on one’s life. My wife: “Why do I always have to repeat everything twice, you don’t listen.” A physical activity teacher: “It’s not that you can’t hear, it’s that you aren’t listening.” Me: “Did you coordinate that with my wife?” (See “Country of Liars” link above.)
2015 is the final year I can start that academic program in time to finish in the time allotted. Somebody who knows me needs to stand up and let me in on the secret. “It is important that no charges be answerable” is no way to live (See, Psychopathic character assassination and murder-by-suicide as depicted in Orwell’s Burmese Days). In life as in court one deserves to know the charges against oneself. What’s so hard to understand about that?
Informing me anonymously would be fine, the only comment field necessary is the comment itself. Using a copy center/internet café would hide a personal IP address. My email is email@example.com, that’s another possibility, plus use a free email account if desired. But this nonsense has gone on long enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This pic disappeared from every single one of my electronic backups (I consider that a strong argument that it is crime depicting), even the hidden ones (perhaps they all have RFID aspects). I couldn’t figure out where I could safely keep it, until I suddenly thought, ‘why not post it on my blog?’, indeed.
Last night once again I heard those sounds that I know to be my ex tapping my phone line, or rather, the cops tapping the line for her. Of course, as the psychopathic cop said in Training Day, it’s not what you know, it’s what you can prove that counts.
Here’s how it goes. You go to non-NYPD law enforcement, say the DA’s office. You say, ‘I think my phone is being tapped — there are unusual sounds and the suspect shows up where I am by surprising coincidence.’ They say, ‘OK, have that verified by the phone company.’ ‘But they work hand in hand with the local police.’ ‘How do you know the police are involved? Is she living with a police officer? In any case, only the phone company has the capabilities, we don’t.’
For decades, the NYPD has been unconstitutionally allowed to illegally bug suspects, they just can’t use the information in court. But they can gather it as they wish. This really means they can tap anyone they want. The phone company and their technicians know this full well, essentially becoming their accomplices.
So you call Bell Atlantic/Verizon, ‘Please check my line for taps.’ ‘OK, will do.’ Then the day before the appointment there’s a message on your answering machine saying ‘Hello, this is the telco, with a reminder that you have an appointment tomorrow to check your phone line for taps.’ Shortly, an hour or so later, the line is as clean as a whistle. There isn’t a whisper of additional noise. And, of course, nothing is found. It might as well be a code to tell cops to temporarily clean up their act. No phone company will ever find a police phone tap.
I once was talking to a technician at a spy shop looking for something that would detect police taps. He had nothing. He also said, he couldn’t foresee an officer risking his career in such a manner. I said, if he can’t be caught then what’s the risk, and why would he ever stop? And to myself I said, particularly a what-me-worry, can’t-possibly-lose psychopathic police officer ever stop. This case may be the Guinness world record for longest period of phone tapping — over a decade, under two.
For a time, five – eight years, it seemed to be twenty-four/seven, as though someone was living my life with me. Also a girlfriend of the time even said, ‘I don’t want to sound crazy, but I think my phone may be tapped.’ Then it fell to a few days a week, or once a week, or just a couple times a month. When I started this series of posts in June the problem disappeared, after being a steady once a week. In the last couple weeks it seems to be back.
On the other question, ‘How do you know police are involved.’ So I hire the services of an database private eye. There is no obvious link. Unfortunately the results are left on my answering machine, against my request. (If you don’t give contact info to private eyes they get nervous about your motives. So I gave them contact info, but requested that they not use it. Oh well. Private detectives are also annoying in another way: a psychopathic detective will NEVER find any information on a psychopath — which is amazing.)
In NYC, there is no designed mechanism to complain about the local police. Any complaints will be forwarded to the local precinct. Early in the process, I filed a complaint in another precinct concerning 20-30 calls a day to my answering machine. I was told that the complaint couldn’t get a file number until it was forwarded to the home precinct, which it was, the report then disappeared as did the calls.
Moreover the DA’s office has a conflict of interest. Police cooperation is necessary for their cases. It is against their interest to act on an anonymous citizen’s complaint.
New York City needs an independent prosecutor for police misconduct or an independent investigatory body with subpoena powers and the power to appoint temporary prosecutors.
Why does this person still have a job? I wrote a request for all records pertaining to myself under the New York FOIL law and have received two woefully incomplete (obviously and ridiculously incomplete) responses. The second response was an appeal from the first response. Jonathon David now informs me that my only recourse left is to bring a Article 78 proceeding in court, i.e., to sue them. So, . . . the NYPD has to be forced to obey the law? When the law is very clear? This apparently happens all the time (see articles referenced below). Why haven’t the courts slapped them down. Courts usually don’t like being bothered with matters that could and should have been handled adminstratively.
Whenever there is a problem of a culture gone bad in an organization, the first targets are logically the exemplars, the public standard bearers of that faulty culture. Here in NYC we have a police culture of arrogance and individuals seemingly believing that not only are they above the law, that they are the law. Jonathan David and his office carries out that behavior in broad daylight. He should be fired and the office reorganized.
Please don’t think this is my personal opinion/problem. The NYPD Legal Dept. is quite famous. Amazingly they claimed the Freedom of Information Law didn’t apply to the FOIL process itself. . . . Huh???
From The Village Voice’s The NYPD’s a Little Confused About How the Freedom of Information Law Works:
Since late last year, MuckRock reporter Shawn Musgrave had been trying to get the NYPD to release “any manual, training reference, or other guide” explaining how the department processes freedom of information requests. The cops had refused the request though, arguing — with a deeply symbolic bit of circular logic — that the freedom of information procedures themselves weren’t subject to New York’s Freedom of Information Law.
While it’s unusual for FOIL officers to talk publicly about individual requests, Jonathan David, the attorney charged with answering Musgrave’s letters, tells the Voice the whole thing was really a misunderstanding. In his view, the patrol guide, which contains pretty limited FOIL discussion, didn’t qualify as a training manual.
Come on. Our tax money goes to these people? “Training manual”? Nice little trick, selective memory.
NYPD Rejects Freedom Of Information Law Request For Their Freedom Of Information Law Handbook
. . . But this latest rejection is for the exact guidelines that spell out which records must be released and which can be withheld from the public. Few documents are better suited for release under the Freedom of Information Law than a freedom of information handbook. http://gothamist.com/2014/03/21/nypd_transparency.php
NYPD has a freedom of information handbook, after all
The NYPD does, in fact, have a Freedom of Information Law guide. Someone tell its Freedom of Information Law unit, which for months has denied emphatically that any such document exists. https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2014/jul/02/nypd-has-freedom-information-handbook-after-all/
I’m quite aware that many of my readers disagree/disapprove of my listen-to-the-force-luke-skywalker/let your subconscious be your guide approach to recognizing psychopathy. A more objective approach is to pay attention to thinking patterns, psychopathic arrogance and types of lies as avenues to recognizing psychopaths. Psychopaths love to turn situations on their head — such as, FOILs don’t apply to FOILs (it’s called the ‘180 Rule’ – http://180rule.com/psychopaths-girardian-theory-the-180-rule/). That’s also a pre-logical thinking pattern, another trait of psychopaths. It is also very arrogant. If my services had been hired, I would have started with those NYPD positions that have the capability of protecting other psychopaths within the force.
Back to my situation, my original request asked that the psychopathic NYPD police officer (identified by his DPL/DPA license plate numbers which I had learned through their harassment of me over the years) I have referenced elsewhere not be allowed to play a part in deciding what to release or not. (See, To the de Blasio administration, I hereby volunteer to identify NYPD whiteshirt psychopaths, gratis, Is there a ‘Training Day’ crew in the NYPD and are they targetting me?, and other posts tagged NYPD.) The first response included only a traffic ticket and a complaint that I had filed that didn’t involve him or my ex. Clever, very clever. He couldn’t have done better if he had chosen himself. While the complaint didn’t involve them, at the time I though it might and thus I referenced other complaints I had made about telephone harassment. Obviously these should have been, and were included in the second response. However the source/telephone numbers of that harassment was not included (which a detective had in fact given me originally, so they do have them).
Also unincluded were files regarding the time I was served by the police and my ex with papers to appear at mediation, or complaints that she mentioned having filed prior to that mediation (which I was not aware of her having done). It is patently ridiculous that these not be included (non essential material could be redacted of course). I’m not that interested in this material, these events were some 20 years ago, but obviously any complete file would include them. Further there was nothing indicating why extremely hostile (and apparently disgusted??) auxiliary cops were posted at my corner and armed cops at the therapists’ corner for weeks in 2011. Nor was there anything referencing any political activism on my part.
I was told that requests had to include the when and the where — in other words one can only ask about material that one already knows about. You can’t even ask if there are any unknown complaints filed against you because if they are unknown you don’t know enough to ask for them!! Sounds like the 180-Rule to me.
My goal with the FOIL was hopefully to find out the character assassination/whispering campaign that my ex and her cop friends seem to be the font of. It is taken very seriously, scares people and has caused many to turn their face to the wall rather than give a friendly hello as they had done for years (inducing ‘refusal to associate’ is a crime). More later.
Monday, October 6, I was running errands and driving around town. On the way back I realized that my drivers’ side mirror had been re-angled (https://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2014/07/28/for-the-record-anomalies/#comment-121395). But I had only been parking for 10-15 minutes here and there and running in and out of small stores. That meant that the responsible party(ies) had to be following me very closely. This is different from their standard practice where I would be somewhere for an hour or two (such as a restaurant or such like).
Also the concealed carry ad showed up again but in a new situation (https://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/2014/09/15/this-is-the-insanity-i-live-with-where-do-these-ads-come-from-and-what-do-they-mean/). If anything it was even bigger than this, taking up a full side of the screen.
I had to switch back to Windows for a bit and was running totally different internet security software. Did they just want to let me know they had hacked the security package? Or is it a threat? Things seemed to be reaching a crescendo.
The day before one of the DPA/DPL’s crew (the letters refer to partial license plate numbers) had walked by to check out what I was doing — I was waiting for my wife to pick up breakfast for the road at a restaurant I have gone to for decades but which was ‘in their territory.’ (Mine too, we are only 5 blocks apart, but as I haven’t interacted or spoken to my ex’s therapists in over fifteen years why does it matter? Why they are terrified of me and the husband actually tried to run me down I don’t understand. The whole point of this post and series of posts is to find out what the character assassination is. In life as in court, isn’t one entitled to know the charges against them? What’s so hard to understand about that?)
Then later on Monday I fell into my usual routine, returning home in the early eve. On the six blocks home I found I was walking through a guantlet of some 3 or 4 police vehicles whose occupants were paying close attention to me. Then when I got to my corner I saw a smallish bizarrely incognito individual (outsize white framed sunglasses and a strange hat) approaching on the exact path I had taken the previous Wednesday. So I kept walking without turning.
What makes this more interesting is that this is the second occurrence of almost the same thing. That previous Wednesday I had noticed the same things regarding police vehicles and had avoided the same individual immediately at my building, wearing the same sunglasses and that time, a pork pie hat. But my reaction was, pretty much, what is this weirdness about? The second time not so much.
I also noticed that a couple of the police cars seemed unhappy with my noticing their attention to me particularly one FHN ____, a black/dark blue Chevy Malibu. Other cars that might have been involved were ERH and a **36 from the precinct north of here.
So what is going on?
In both situations I avoided the flashy incognito individual (the first time I don’t believe they were aware that I was aware, they probably thought my avoidance was accidental. Since my progress to the destination was obviously being monitored, my question for myself was ‘what was waiting at the end of the line?’ So I walked by my entry as though to make a cell phone call out of doors. Shortly thereafter, a strange female character (5′ 6″ or so) exited my building walking straight towards me, wearing a seeming disguise of outsize white sunglasses and a pork pie hat. Then her will and her steps seemed to falter, to wobble, and she passed me by). It stands to reason that it was my ex. But on the other hand the whole situation doesn’t stand to reason, so I don’t really know. But my instincts said avoid, and I listen to my instincts.
I recommend to anyone in conflict with a psychopath (here the DPA/DPL and at least three members of his crew) entertain what are normally called paranoid lines of thought. Usually people in these situations aren’t paranoid/justifiably suspicious enough — e.g., that husband who slept with a revolver to protect himself from his wife, who killed him claiming he had rolled over onto his gun, that wife who told her daughter that if anything happened to her it would be by her husband’s hand (whom she still lived with, until he killed her). Were the occurrences above assassination attempts? If (and it’s only an if) that individual was my ex then I suspect so. The way these things work is that there is a publicly declaimed shooter and then a killing shooter in the background (a la “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”).
If her therapists read this, which I do believe they do — I had anonymously sent to a suspected conduit the earlier post, To the de Blasio administration, I hereby volunteer to identify NYPD whiteshirt psychopaths, gratis. The conduit immediately knew I had sent it which proves that he/she was in fact a conduit and essentially that they knew about this blog already — they should talk to their client. Maybe they already know whether she owns outsized white famed sunglasses or whether she has read these posts.
If they believe she was involved they should send her to a mental hospital (she’s been in them before) or on a long trip. There’s a real chance that if the events were an assassination attempt that it would have been a double job, with the blame placed on my shoulders no doubt. In a sense she is more of a threat to the psychopathic crew than I am. She knows of their crimes, having participated in them. I haven’t spoken much about criminal behavior on their part, but they crossed that line a long time ago in their invasion of my privacy. Being psychopaths they never figured they’d ever have to pay the piper and my ex got to live my life right along with her own.
Moving to a different subject, when running into psychopaths I’ve never met before I often get the impression that they’d like to thank me for my efforts. They should thank officer DPA/DPL instead. Recently I was at a counter of computer terminals with one other person. I noticed his looking at me and saw both that he recognized me and was a psychopath. Then he began farting (making farting sounds?), some 6 to 8 times. I’m sorry but they were misdirected.
Recently I went to an email account of mine and found this ad.
For years (over 10) I would see this same ad (or a similar one for the same website) on an auction website that I went to frequently. I believe it now showed up in the email program to let me know it had been hacked (by a cop friend of my ex). What good is getting over on somebody, if you can’t let them know? Those who know how to do it can write scripts to send the metatags of their choice to advertising services.
This email website normally only has one series of ads. Yet I also saw, one time only, a Charmin bathroom tissue ad (for around three seconds, literally). I took this to mean that they had accessed my instrument/emergency supplies storage facility (no big deal).
Originally I thought the ad on the auction website was connected with firearms in the auctions. However I never searched for any firearms and most were long guns anyway. Furthermore this was the only firearm ad ever showing up. I believe they wanted me to click on it, presumably to portray me as a violent individual.
However I have zero interest in concealed carry personally. The only time I might wish to have a handgun would be if I lived on a farm or in bear country. Other than that, I wouldn’t be interested in owning one.
For awhile now, I’ve prevented ads from appearing on my computer. So I turned them back on and went to the same auction website. Voila:
How am I supposed to take this? Just more shenanigans from gas lighting psychopaths or something more sinister?
When the therapist husband (Steven Cope, http://www.stevencope.com/, http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/steven-cope-lcsw-new-york) of my ex’s therapist almost ran me down (as it appeared from my standpoint), he looked simply terrified and extremely angry. I have no idea why. I have no record of violence or violent threats. I suspect one of the psychopathic cops is painting a false picture for his own purposes. Or perhaps he, his wife (Nancy Becker, http://nancybeckertherapy.com/, https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/name/Nancy_Becker_LCSW_New+York_New+York_145736), and her (their?) group therapy group are in the thrall of a psychopathic member of the group.
Now, there is a logical, nonviolent possible reason for their (my ex’s psychopathic police friends) believing these ads might be effective in drawing me in (I never clicked on one of them ever). But that would involve repeated jail time felonies on their part. I believe they used to give tours of my apartment to my ex, at the time I had a few gun magazines around. I see these ads as proof of their illegal entry.
The NYPD knows who the main individual is through my communications. I wish they would prove to themselves the psychopathic-or-not status of this individual, through Adrian Raines brain scans (https://pathwhisperer.wordpress.com/tag/adrian-raine/).
