Draft of questionnaire for targeted individuals
(c) Ricardo Camilo López
version: 9 (123 questions)
$ date: Thu Jul 30 00:29:04 EDT 2015
// __ Introduction:
This questionnaire will be used as survey and guideline for targeted individuals to share their personal experiences. Questions should be used as cues, not as an interrogation routine. In general:
- please, let us know of any questions you think that should be included or suggestions to improve them
- you should answer only those questions you feel comfortable, knowledgeable about
- you should not attempt to answer any questions which you may find possibly incriminating to yourself or other people whose privacy you choose to protect or you should talk in a general, non-identifiable way
please, do not use hyperbolic, metaphoric language while narrating incidents; if you were medically or sexually abused relate the incident as it happened (don’t say “I was raped”)(unfortunately, many women are abusively raped still in our days)) and if your neighbors gangstalk, snitch you, don’t say “the Warshaw gettho Jewish police here in Brooklyn, NY where I live” … In fact, the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division keeps their own terminology as part of their Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program:
where they define technical terms such as: stalking, sexual assault and disorderly conduct. Those definitions should apply to their own illegal actions. It is OK to use a metaphor or interpretation, after the actual incident has been related as it was
- an editor will ultimately marshall our writing, but only to the author’s satisfaction, you may exclude the answer to any of your questions during editing
// __ Definition of terms:
There are certain techniques used by police:
- targeted individual (TI):
- the government, the NSA, “they” (politicians, police, their accomplices, …):
- to iterate:
- to push back:
- tailing: following in a vehicle or walking behind you closely as not leaving you enough space to maneuver your car or encroaching on your personal space
- gang stalking:
- constancy, unremittingly:
- sleep deprivation:
- to clown you around, to put up a skit:
- SIGINT: so-called signal intelligence
- HUMINT: so-called human intelligence
- STT, TTS: Speech to Text, Text to Speech
// __ Awareness:
Q: When do you think you became a targeted individual (TI)?
Q: What sort of things started happening to you?
Q: For how long do you think you have been harassed? Has it changed in intensity or type?
Q: Did you initially believe it was weird, but random or particularized? At what point or after which incident did you figure out it was not random b#llsh!t?
Q: Have you noticed their patterns of harassment, how they have customized them for you?
Q: Do they try to verbally engage you or they clown you around with their stupid skits?
Q: All supposedly “private” communications are being intercepted and sigint’ed by the NSA anyway; yet, in your case, have you noticed your private communications are being “monitored” live real time?
Q: Do they know exactly when you are coming out of your home or workplace? How do you think they do?
Q: How certain are you about being targeted? How much of it do you think is real?, how much of it is “logically” constructed or imagined?
Q: Have you ever noticed at times you were plain wrong? Have you ever had doubts about your own judgments?
Q: Do you keep in mind that “they are listening” as you talk on the phone?
Q: What do you President Obama could have possibly meant when he said, “they are not listening to your phone calls”?
Q: Have you noticed “things” when you have visited other states, other countries?
Q: How has your life changed as a result of becoming a TI?
Q: Have you learned to handle and emotionally cope with those bothersome incidents somewhat?
Q: Have you learned/gained anything from being persecuted?
Q: In your opinion, what are your strengths? How do you think they have used your strengths to mess with you?
Q: In your opinion, what are your weaknesses and how do you cope with them?
Q: Any particular aspects of how they have been persecuting you that you believe is or should be illegal?
Q: Do they go about their business in overt, easily to document ways; in covert ways (from the shadows, through innuendo); or “all the above”?
Q: Have they induced you towards criminal behaviors?
Q: Have they ever pressed charges against you?
Q: Do you believe they have poisoned, laced your food, or intoxicated you though your consuming habits, such as drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco?
Q: Have you watched movies, read fiction, dystopia and anthropologies about abusive political systems before and/or after you realized you had been targeted?
Q: Did you know about COINTELPRO and/or MKUltra before or after you realized you had been targeted?
Q: Do you know about JTRIG?
Q: Have you been suicidal as a result of being harassed? Had you ever been suicidal?
Q: The NSA/their 5 eyes have been intercepting and “monitoring” all electromagnetic communications, they know exactly where you are and have been 24×7 (through our modern-day prisoner bracelets: our cell phones), they know whom you talk to, what you have said to them and what they said to you, whom they talk to … They know all people you have passed by (even if you don’t know them or will ever know who they are) … and they keep all that information for good, after indexing it into corpora with ready-made triggers for suspiciously “unnormed” patterns (you could actually be killed for) after calling it “metadata”; but, do you believe they are able to monitor your neuronal impulses, implant images in and hijack your mind? How so?
// __ Why me?:
Q: Do you have any idea (even if remote) as to why they are harassing you?
Q: In the same way they try to sell you the tired and stupid illusion about “‘good’ and ‘bad’ police”, they use “‘good’ snitches”, certain individulas with “good intentions” you have never met in your life (who are being paid) to try to “help” you, by convincing you that “you have an ego”, “you are some narcissistic fellow seeking attention”, … Have you noticed how they are being commanded to say things to you?
Q: Have they ever tried to expressly “negotiate” with you to become one of their snitching @ssh0l3s in exchange for them to stop their harassment?
Q: Have you ever “talked” to them? Any anecdotes you would like to share?
Q: Would you describe instances in which they have shared with strangers what they know about your private life in order to mess with you?
Q: As part of their so-called “Patriot Act” they have access to your medical records and the USG has become #1 employer of “psychology graduates”. Have you noticed them exploiting their knowledge about your medical conditions to mess with you?
Q: If you could see it this way, to you what is the most worrying, annoying part of being targeted?
Q: Do you tend to withdraw within yourself and keep all aspects about your own inner life separate from your social life? Does it work for you? How effective do you believe this is?
Q: Do they mess with you in addition to “monitoring” your communications?
Q: They mess with you, but do you think they have actually either persuaded or “made you one of them” or “broken” you?
Q: In hindsight, do you think you could have played a better game to them without compromising your moral and civic convictions? How so?
Q: If you believe you became a TI because of your civic, moral, political convictions, have you ever regretted having such convictions? Was it worth it?
Q: Anything you regret at all?
Q: There is that European movie in which a therapist asks his patient to relate how distressed, angry he was. Patient’s answer was: “I wouldn’t even know how to explain how I feel, but let me put it this way: If I were ‘American’ I would take a machine gun and start randomly shooting at people out there”.
Attorney Myron May, a law-abiding and conscientious citizen, was targeted by USG to the point he went ‘American’. Of course, the ever subservient U.S. media guarding and framing USG-authorized memes demonized him. As a TI yourself could you understand how could an otherwise peaceful, quite and harmless individual be driven to the point of going ‘American’?
Q: Anything you would like for people asking themselves the same question: “Why me?” to understand?

Q: Have they clowned, articulated you?
Q: Do you think gang-stalkers are organized?, individuals who are being notified real time through their cell phones (police know where you are, will be 24×7) and team up to stalk you?, have they been groups of people belonging to a certain entity (say, the fire department or NYC’s Metropolitan Transport Association (MTA) or the US Postal Service)?
Q: In NYC the NYPD has a city-wide network of snitching @ssh0l3s called “nexus”, they have built probably the largest snitching network ever by the tacit Anschloss of such watchdog groups as: neighborhood, sexual offenders and predators watch groups, shoplifting prevention, taxi and livery car drivers, store front owners (who make their employees pop out of their cells to watch as you pass by, even if they have only one person taking care of business at this moment!), all building superintendents and porters, … By their behavior, do you think they are being told, say, you are a pedophile, sexual offender, shop lifter, …?

Q: Which techniques have you used to avoid or reduce monitoring?
// __ Technical surface:
Q: Do you think having less “surface” gives them less ground and space to mess with you?
Q: Do you own a cell phone? Do you keep your cell phone in a Faraday cage?
Q: Do you give specific details when you talk on the phone?
Q: Do you use background noises, music, random office environments when you talk on the phone, in order to avoid or make difficult the automatic transcription of our voice by STT software?

Q: What do you think of stalkers, snitches?
Q: USG pays snitches to harass people and psychology graduates whose “patriotic” full-time job is to customize harassment and torture to regular folks out there.
They see their actions as trying to help you, “defend democracy” and do “their job” day in and day out happily ever after. What, if anything, do you think of those “psychology graduates”?
Q: What do you think of the NSA when they say, we are not doing anything wrong we are just collecting your data; it is the military and police the ones doing bad things?
Q: What do you think of the NSA when they say: ” …, but you yourself have made your personal information public on facebook, use google, …”?
Q: Do you think the NSA/USG/five eyes with the collaboration of “f#ck the EU” governments will ever stop their abuses? If so, what would it take?
Q: Is there any hope “We the people” will have a sense of that thing we used to call “privacy” ever again?
Q: Most people had read Orwell’s 1984 as dystopia and watched “enemy of the state” as a movie always thinking “that can only happen in some crazy as place such as East Germany. Many in the know had blown the whistle loud and proud, but almost no one was ready to hear it. Then, after the Snowden revelations, we all learn “enemy of the state” wasn’t just a movie and that Orwell’s 1984 was actually being used (even creatively) as a manual by government. Why do you think “we the people” haven’t protested those issues more?
Q: Some of the most prominent technical authors of the Internet such as Tim Berners-Lee and Bruce Schneier as well as most political representatives in the highest spheres of government (Dianne Feinstein (US Senate intelligence committee chairwoman) herself!) admitted they didn’t even suspect the crass breach of trust, the degree of corruption and immorality of the NSA. How do you think that was possible?
Q: After the fact, Bruce Schneier have pointed out it actually were U.S. IT companies the ones that were all out spying on people and the NSA had the idea of getting themselves copies of it all. Snowden says USG deputizes spying on people whole mass to U.S. companies “by the rule of law” and those who have questioned such abuses (Qwest Communications’ Joseph Nacchio and Lavabit’s Ladar Levison) have been put out of business. Do you think U.S. IT companies could have said not to daddy government?
Q: Manning is serving time for exposing genocide and crimes against humanity which have greatly overdone Nazi’s on a number of important counts, Assange is basically under house arrest in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for speaking truth to power (thank you, Ecuador!), Edward Snowden has exiled himself in Moscow. Aaron Swartz was targeted by USG in order, as they themselves admitted, to “use him to make an example”  because he exposed USG’s illegalities and abuses in a civic disobedient ways as Henry Thoreau taught us. Aaron is dead (to the extent he quit all hopes, was driven by USG to the point of committing suicide and/or they killed him is debatable) after exposing illegalities and abuses of the USG … Do you see any way out of madness?
// __ Closing remarks:
There are oppressive governments and institutions such as the former East German, the Cuban, Chinese, Soviet, Pinochet, Nazi ones, and the Catholic Church; who have done their persecution in open and explicit ways. Their oppressive “laws” and regulations, they have explicitly included in their “legal” code such as “spreading false news disturbing peace on Earth”. The Catholic Church thoroughly minded their Index Librorum Prohibitorum down to the chapter and paragraph and sentence; publishing it (in fact, in those times it was good business publishing the Index ;-)) , whereas U.S. political representatives didn’t even read the Patriot Act and its author has adamantly pointed out he never intended its statues to be interpreted in such ways as to allow for such unmoral, illegal political aberrations as the NSA. USG, already sporting the (second?) highest incarceration rate in the world, their various and well coordinated forms of persecution and repression (including putting people under Zersetzung) do it based on layers on top of layers of secrecy, “classified” documents; so-called secret courts, based on secret laws which interpretations (by secret judges) are secret. Most of the U.S. congress representatives themselves admitted they didn’t even know the extent of NSA’s corruption and illegality.
Q: Why do you think governments find so easy to get away with such abuses?
Q: Do you respect those kinds of “what we do is ‘different’, ‘necessary’ …” rationalizations every repressive government has tried in order to justify their wrong doings?
Q: U.S. citizens were promised as part of the Church commission they would never spy on them, the NSA went pretty much unquestioned for decades (NSA: No Such Agency), most U.S. citizens consider targeted individuals to be deranged, “such things don’t happen in ‘the’ land of ‘the’ ‘free'”. Why do you think USG has it so easy in the U.S.?
Q: Obviously, as German Chancellor Angela Merkel herself pointed out, USG has become the Stasi of the World. Do you think each country/region should develop their own communication standards instead of having a central governing body which could be more easily and globally corrupted by abusive powers?
