How Do You Confront Evil?

When someone has done something evil to you or someone you love – how would you confront that evil?

Stalkers are evil. So, what actually is evil? Evil is a conscious choice to harm another. Stalkers harm their victims, causing them to suffer a wide range of psychological, physical, occupational, social and general lifestyle effects, as a consequence of being stalked. Stalkers are in the business of terror. Lives are destroyed by this crime – that is why stalking is a crime.

When people deny the reality of stalking that perception helps evil exist – it makes it so much easier for stalkers to continue their reign of terror. This is not okay! Stalkers don’t believe the laws pertain to them…they are puppets of darkness.

I still have the courage to confront the evil of stalking, although at times it is hard, I refuse to back away. I don’t confront the evil of stalking through my anger & rage (although I have those feelings because of what was done to my youngest child), but instead I have chosen to make a higher choice and confront this evil through my writing, and speaking engagements, as well as through my work with other victims of stalking, and upcoming stalking awareness workshops. Someone needs to do something, and there is a lot to do in order to raise awareness, change laws, and level the playing field for victims – we all need to be accountable and do something about these acts of evil. You will be challenged, I have been, but you can’t give into evil – that’s what evil wants – it wants good people to stand back and do nothing. Evaluate your own actions every day – serve someone else every day and illuminate positivity in everything you do.

I don’t believe we can ever completely eliminate evil, but I do believe each and every one of us has the power to stop it when we see it. Help raise awareness, believe the victims, push for stronger laws against stalkers, speak up – your voice is your most powerful tool against the darkness of evil. Thank you all for being warriors for truth & transparency!

How Many More Women Have To Die?

This breaks my heart – she reminds me so much of Morgan…

BBC News – July 2017.  Alice Ruggles murder: Stalking signs missed

Her stalker/her ex-boyfriend drove down from Scotland to stalk her, leaving flowers and chocolates on her windowsill. This was not a romantic gesture – it was coercive control – a symbol of his continued abuse and harassment.

We all need to take stalking seriously – ALWAYS.  It is a crime that with early intervention murders like this can be avoided and innocent victims do not have to end up dead…raise awareness, talk about stalking, don’t avoid the discussion.  We need to learn these lessons or these heinous murders will continue to claim more and more innocent lives!  http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leicestershire-40741464

Drip Drip Drip Pattern of Escalation in Stalking

Do you know what that is like?  Have you ever experienced the slow terror of being the target of a stalker?

Laura Richards, BSc, MSc, Asc. IA-IP, MBPsS.  Laura is a renowned international expert on domestic violence, stalking, sexual violence and risk assessment. https://www.laurarichards.co.uk

Laura Richards said, “It is the ‘drip drip drip’ of direct and indirect stalking behaviours over time that makes it so insidious and damaging – psychologically and physically.” https://www.laurarichards.co.uk/news/stalking-murder-in-slow-motion/

She also said, “We know through research that one in two of domestic stalkers, if they make a threat will act on it.”

If your local police or law enforcement do not make stalking a priority, when it comes to their protocol or policing plan – they will continue to fail the victims of stalking.  There needs to be a National Protocol that is accepted and practiced in all agencies.  Law enforcement needs to have the proper education and tools to deal with stalking situations.  Victims need to be believed and assisted in any way possible.  Please use your voice to help raise awareness and make these changes.
