As bizarre as it may sound, I am of sound mind and state that this is true and to make this as short as possible, I tried to get help from Human Rights Organizations, ACLU, etc. and it seems like this is a subject that nobody wants to get completely involved in. As I have researched on the Internet and Publications that I am not alone living this nightmare...It started a year and half ago with a neighbor's hint it looked as though I was being followed and as I began to take notice it appeared to me to be very obvious. I am talking about not just one or two individuals, 20-30 individuals are around me at all times and not I am not hallucinating (ie. shopping, going to the gas station, etc.) I live in a small town and driving to work which is only 6 miles away in a rural setting that is a private clinic in the evenings from 10 pm - 6 am. Things changed quite drastically where I was being surveilled yet not hiding themselves completely. First I consulted with a Lawyer and asked if they could look into this for me where there could have been a case of mistaken identity with me and to no avail was he able to find out anything after my paying him a good sum of money and only to hear that I need to stay out of trouble and call him when I got arrested..! I haven't done anything wrong ! I have been a divorced working woman in my 50's, I am a Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder) of the US originally coming from Germany and just can't figure this out. I went to the local police with a list of license plates explaining my situation and only to be told that the plates did not come back with anything. I started researching on the net and began to see similar situations and found Targeted Individuals as Test Objects for Databasing or Punished for being Politically Involved, Animal Advocates, Ethnic Reasons or Targeted by Gov't Agencies (not any one in particular), a mixture of Military, FBI, & CIA.Does this sound Utopic enough for you? Now here comes the one that most would not believe and that being... Drones that follow me to and from my employment where they linger above the clinic I work in all night and during the day hours where there were never a plane one to fly by and now constant fly-bys. The local newspaper had an article commenting upon recent activity of planes. I've discussed with close friends and relatives what I witness and now they too have witnessed the same.The ACLU and I have corresponded and it appears they may be of some help in the future as I filed for FOIA Requests with several agencies and Public Records Act Requests from the local police and sheriffs with a result of the local agencies telling me there is "nothing" anywhere on me and the Federal Agencies response so far is that they need to confirm nor deny the existence of my name on any watch list but suggest that I file for an appeal for a more detailed answer. In the meantime I have lost my Freedom and feel I have come to a deadend finding any help in this situation and the laws of freedom just give no answers to a basically tortured life I now live. What advice or help can someone give as to what one should do in a situation like this? Where do you turn when the Gov't is against you and taking away your freedom? This is reality not a myth and have witnesses and some footage of what is explained herein this email.

Hi Jacustomer,The problem with something like this is that even you admit it sounds bizarre. Agencies have probably been inclined to dismiss your complaints. Unfortunately, nobody other than the prosecutor can force the police or the FBI to investigate or to take action, and many matters which, on paper, would amount to criminal offenses of just about every magnitude are simply too difficult to prove and thus get turned aside.The key to your matter is data, hard enough so that other more logical explanations get excluded and/or which looks to other observers exactly the way it does to you. When you have that you can go back to the authorities and try to get them to reevalutate their positions. If you're in the process of amassing that and the ACLU is willing to extend you some assistance, that's great. That is all you can do. You can complain and take the matter on up the food chain to the President himself, and perhaps you should if you feel it will raise their consciousness of what is besetting you, but ultimately, the decision to go forward with or decline a criminal matter rests solely with the prosecutor.I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
