Harassment refers to a wide variety of behavior which can violate both civil and criminal laws. What constitutes criminal harassment varies by state, but it generally entails targeting someone else with behavior meant to alarm, annoy, torment or terrorize, and creating reasonable fear in the victim for their safety or the safety of their family.
Some states have enacted specific laws against stalking someone online. "Cyberstalking" generally refers to stalking someone through the internet, email, text messages, or other means of electronic communication. Many states have revised their harassment and/or stalking laws to explicitly include harassing electronic communications. Some states also punish actions akin to cyberstalking under laws aimed at improper uses of computers or electronic communications networks.
Federal law makes it a crime to "transmit in interstate commerce" (which includes the internet) a communication containing a threat to kidnap or physically harm someone.
HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION OF WITNESSES
makes intimidating or harassing a witness a crime. If you are a witness who is being harassed or intimidated about testifying in a criminal matter or know a witness who is being harassed or intimidated, please contact the law enforcement agency that investigated the case that the witness is testifying in as soon as possible.
Are people really that dumb that they think just because they put up a FAKE name that the IP address on the computer they are on CAN AN WILL not be TRACKED down eventually. You can't put out death threats an actually feel like you are a GHOST because you can be found eventually. An really deleting them all is really quite funny. As you know they are still on the air waves just not on your page. To late people/hate mongers.
Yes I believe they are that dumb as they watch JOKE NEWS an repeat word for word what a Entertainment Show says about a criminal case. They do not go out on the internet an investigate on their own they are too lazy to do that. They just follow as sheep do. An now want to threaten people an their livelihoods all I have to say is I hope it comes back on them 10 fold.

Aaron's Swartz's suicide in January triggered waves of indignation, and rightly so. He faced multiple felony counts and years in prison for what were, at worst, trivial transgressions of law. But his prosecution revealed the excess of both anti-hacking criminal statutes, particularly the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), and the fixation of federal prosecutors on severely punishing all forms of activism that challenge the power of the government and related entities to control the flow of information on the internet. Part of what drove the intense reaction to Swartz's death was how sympathetic of a figure he was, but as noted by Orin Kerr, a former federal prosecutor in the DOJ's computer crimes unit and now a law professor at GWU, what was done to Swartz is anything but unusual, and the reaction to his death will be meaningful only if channeled to protest other similar cases of prosecutorial abuse:
"I think it's important to realize that what happened in the Swartz case happens in lots and lots of federal criminal cases. . . . What's unusual about the Swartz case is that it involved a highly charismatic defendant with very powerful friends in a position to object to these common practices. That's not to excuse what happened, but rather to direct the energy that is angry about what happened. If you want to end these tactics, don't just complain about the Swartz case. Don't just complain when the defendant happens to be a brilliant guy who went to Stanford and hangs out with Larry Lessig. Instead, complain that this is business as usual in federal criminal cases around the country - mostly with defendants who no one has ever heard of and who get locked up for years without anyone else much caring."
Prosecutorial abuse is a drastically under-discussed problem in general, but it poses unique political dangers when used to punish and deter online activism. But it's becoming the preeminent weapon used by the US government to destroy such activism.

A 100% disabled Army veteran and his wife say a Minnesota-based law firm and debt collection agency has illegally garnished their savings to cover a defaulted student loan and verbally abused them when they asked for their money back.
Michael Collier was declared 100% disabled after suffering spine and head injuries during his time in the Army. His disability entitled him to Social Security payments exempt from debt garnishment.
But that didn't stop Gurstel Chargo from seizing funds from the savings account of Kim Collier, Michael's wife, to pay off a $6,000 defaulted student loan.
At a court hearing back in May, a judge ordered Kim's credit union to unfreeze her assets effective immediately after definitively declaring that her account was exempt from garnishment. But a Gurstel attorney allegedly told Collier afterwards that he would need to sue the collection agency "to get his money back."
Trying to sort the matter over the phone instead, Collier claims he was treated to a barrage of obscenities and insults from an unidentified paralegal.
According to court documents, "the assistant told Michael, 'Fuck you! Pay us your money! You can't afford an attorney. You owe us. I hope your wife divorces your ass. If you would have served our country better you would not be a disabled veteran living off social security while the rest of us honest Americans work our ass off. Too bad; you should have died."
A lawsuit subsequently filed by the Colliers demands a variety of damages from Gurstel for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which very clearly prohibits the employment of harassment or abuse in the collection of a debt.

She once was a science-minded undergrad who spent her nights minding the telescopes on the top floors of the University of Toronto’s McLennan building.
Katharine Hayhoe is now a figure of some fame and controversy in the United States, for her sin is that she is an evangelical Christian who is also a climate scientist trying to convince skeptics that climate change is for real.
Dr. Hayhoe made headlines after the Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich came under pressure and dropped plans to have her write an opening chapter on climate change for his upcoming book.
Now, her teaching duties at Texas Tech University have resumed and the sting from the Gingrich snub is fading. But the hate mail is still pouring in, dozens of insulting e-mails every morning.
“It’d be a lot easier to stay home. It’s not easy having people standing up and screaming at you. It’s not easy opening your mail in the morning and seeing a hundred e-mails, each one more hateful than the last,” Dr. Hayhoe said Monday, in her first interview with a Canadian news outlet.
“That’s not easy. And it’s not the science that motivates me. It’s what comes from the heart.”
That introduction to the sharp-elbowed world of politics was the latest blow for the 39-year-old, who already had a taste of hostile audiences from public speaking at Christian schools, seniors homes, farmers’ group and book clubs.
She was prepared to deal with emotional, unfriendly reactions. But she wasn’t expecting what came with the name recognition, she said.
“There’s a well-organized campaign, primarily in the United States but also in other countries, including Canada and Australia, of bloggers, of people in the media, of basically professional climate deniers whose main goal is to abuse, to harass and to threaten anybody who stands up and says climate change is real – especially anybody who’s trying to take that message to audiences that are more traditionally skeptical of this issue.”
It was even more shocking because she didn’t see herself as a “Godless, tree-hugging activist” but a scientist who also happened to be a member of an evangelical Bible church. She is also married to a pastor.
“The attacks’ virulence, the hatred and the nastiness of the text have escalated exponentially. I’ve gotten so many hate mail in the last few weeks I can’t even count them.”
Dr. Hayhoe says she had never met people who didn’t believe in climate change until she moved to the U.S. and began her public work.
Because she framed her concerns with optimism rather than doom, she was approached four years ago by Terry Maple, who was co-editing Mr. Gingrich’s book, to pen an opening chapter.
Mr. Gingrich, however, has struggled with some core Republicans who accuse him of harbouring environmental sympathies.
And thus, in mid-December, Marc Morano, a conservative activist, derided the planned book co-operation with Dr. Hayhoe, saying that it proved Mr. Gingrich was a “committed greenie” and a “warmist.”
Mr. Morano is a former Fox News contributor and his item was picked up by radio host Rush Limbaugh.
On Dec. 28, Mr. Gingrich was approached by a female supporter at an Iowa campaign stop. A video posted by the weekly The National Journal shows the woman telling Mr. Gingrich she wanted to talk about “Rush” and the global-warming book chapter.
Mr. Gingrich stopped her in mid-sentence. “It’s not going to be in the book. We didn’t know that they were doing that and we told them to kill it.”
“Good, that’s all I needed to know,” the woman said.
Afterward, Mr. Gingrich signalled to an aide. “Remind me when we’re back in the bus: ‘Rush’ and ‘global warming’,” he told the aide.
Dr. Hayhoe’s learned of the decision from the media.
“Nice to hear that Gingrich is tossing my #climate chapter in the trash. 100+ unpaid hrs I [could have] spent playing w my baby,” she wrote on Twitter.
She says that she now feels no grudge against Mr. Gingrich and that the incident is just proof of the acute polarization that has affected what should be a scientific debate.
“Attacking me and my colleagues and trying to intimidate us and trying to smear us is not going to change the facts of the situation.”

There aren't too many politicians speaking out about real issues, such as the TSA harassment and sexual groping which isa federal policy initiated under the Obama administration.
The Texas congressman accused the Transportation Security Administration of taking an “abusive” attitude towards passengers, disputing the view that government regulation helps airline security.
Paul said of the TSA: “They’re accused of all kind of sexual activities”
To the notion that his libertarian approach to security could threaten passenger safety, Paul said that exactly the reverse was true.
It was government policy, he said, that helped make 9/11 possible.
“They told the pilots they couldn’t have guns,” Paul said. “They set up the stage for this.”There aren't too many politicians speaking out about real issues, such as the TSA... more

Hasn't the FDA done enough?
A civil liberties group is giving free legal assistance to a Colorado man who faces a criminal harassment charge for flipping off a state trooper.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado says while the gesture may not be very nice, it is protected free speech.
The ACLU says Shane Boor, 35, was driving to work in April when he
saw a state trooper pull over another driver. As Boor passed by, he flipped the patrolman the bird, which the trooper interpreted as an obscene gesture.
See more topics »
Censorship According to the ALCU another trooper went to Boor's work site and questioned him about the incident.
ACLU Legal Director Mark Silverstein says Boor did nothing illegal, "Our client engaged in peaceful, silent symbolic expression that is protected by First Amendment."
Boor received a criminal summons April 27 ordering him to appear in Jefferson County Court to answer a criminal charge of harassment
The misdemeanor charge carries a penalty of up to six months in jail.
Reporter Shaul Turner asked for opinions of people who were walking on downtown Denver's 16th Street Mall Friday.
"If the policeman is on duty, he needs to have the respect that the city gave him," one man says.
Another man says, "I work for the police, I don't think it's illegal or anything. It's freedom of speech (and) they can say how they feel to the police."
"Geez, I've been known to do things like that, but not to a cop," one woman laughs.

Janine Lindemulder, Jesse James’s ex-wife, was arrested in Hays County Saturday for harassment, reports San Antonio Express News.
Lindemulder, 42, is an adult film star who married founder of West Coast Choppers Jesse James in 2002, and then received divorce papers when she was pregnant with their daughter in October 2003 after reportedly assaulting her husband in May 2003, according to the Huffington Post. The legal documents say that Lindemulder punched James in the eye, hit in him the head with a flower pot, swung a steel bone sculpture at him, tried to run him over with a car, and whacked him with a cell phone.Janine Lindemulder, Jesse James’s ex-wife, was arrested in Hays County Saturday... more
Jacob Appelbaum(http://www.appelbaum.net/), a security researcher, Tor(http://www.torproject.org/) developer, and volunteer with Wikileaks, reported today on his Twitter feed that he was detained, searched, and questioned by the US Customs and Border Patrol agents at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on January 10, upon re-entering the US after a vacation in Iceland.
He experienced a similar incident last year at Newark airport.
An archive of his tweeted account from today follows.
• It's very frustrating that I have to put so much consideration into talking about the kind of harassment that I am subjected to in airports.
• I was detained, searched, and CPB did attempt to question me about the nature of my vacation upon landing in Seattle.
• The CPB specifically wanted laptops and cell phones and were visibly unhappy when they discovered nothing of the sort.
• I did however have a few USB thumb drives with a copy of the Bill of Rights encoded into the block device. They were unable to copy it.
• The forensic specialist (who was friendly) explained that EnCase and FTK, with a write-blocker inline were unable to see the Bill of Rights.
• I requested access my lawyer and was again denied. They stated I was I wasn't under arrest and so I was not able to contact my lawyer.
• The CBP (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) agent was waiting for me at the exit gate. Remember when it was our family and loved ones?
• When I handed over my customs declaration form, the female agent was initially friendly. After pulling my record, she had a sour face.
• She attempted to trick me by putting words into my mouth. She marked my card with a large box with the number 1 inside, sent me on my way.
• While waiting for my baggage, I noticed the CBP agent watching me and of course after my bag arrived, I was "randomly" selected for search.
• Only US customs has random number generator worse than a mid-2007 Debian random number generator. Random? Hardly.
• During the search, I made it quite clear that I had no laptop and no cell phone. Only USB drives with the Bill of Rights.
• The CBP agent stated that I had posted on Twitter before my flight and that slip ended the debate about their random selection process.
• The CBP agents in Seattle were nicer than ones in Newark. None of them implied I would be raped in prison for the rest of my life this time.
• The CBP agent asked if the ACLU was really waiting. I confirmed the ACLU was waiting and they again denied me contact with legal help.
• All in all, the detainment was around thirty minutes long. They all seemed quite distressed that I had no computer and no phone.
• They were quite surprised to learn that Iceland had computers and that I didn't have to bring my own.
• There were of course the same lies and threats that I received last time. They even complemented me on work done regarding China and Iran.
• I think there's a major disconnect required to do that job and to also complement me on what they consider to be work against police states.
• While it's true that Communist China has never treated me as badly as CBP, I know this isn't true for everyone who travels to China.
• All in all, if you're going to be detained, searched, and harassed at the border in an extra-legal manner, I guess it's Seattle over Newark.
• It took a great deal of thought before I posted about my experience because it honestly appears to make things worse for me in the future.
• Even if it makes things worse for me, I refuse to be silent about state sponsored systematic detainment, searching, and harassment.
• In case it is not abundantly clear: I have not been arrested, nor charged with any crime, nor indicted in any way. Land of the free? Hardly.
• I'm only counting from the time that we opened my luggage until it was closed. The airport was basically empty when I left.
• It's funny that the forensics guy uses EnCase. As it, like CBP, apparently couldn't find a copy of the Bill of Rights I dd'ed into the disk.
• The forensics guy apparently enjoyed the photo with my homeboy Knuth and he was really quite kind. The forensics guy in Newark? Not so much.
• The CBP agent asked me for data - was I bringing data into the country? Where was all my data from the trip? Names, numbers, receipts, etc.
• The mental environment that this creates for traveling is intense. Nothing is assured, nothing is secure, and nothing provides escape.
• I resisted the temptation to give them a disk filled with /dev/random because I knew that reading them the Bill of Rights was enough hassle.
• I'm flying to Toronto, Canada for work on Sunday and back through Seattle again a few days later. Should be a joy to meet these guys again.
• All of this impacts my ability to work and takes a serious emotional toll on me. It's absolutely unacceptable.
• What happens if I take a device they can't image? They take it. What about the stuff they give back? Back doored? Who knows?
• Does it void a warranty if your government inserts a backdoor into your computer or phone? It certainly voids the trust I have in all of it.
• I dread US Customs more than I dreaded walking across the border from Turkey to Iraq in 2005. That's something worth noting.
• I will probably never feel safe about traveling internationally with a computer or phones again.
• None the less, safe or not, I won't stop working on Tor. Nor will I cease traveling. I will adapt and I will win. A hard road worth taking.Jacob Appelbaum(http://www.appelbaum.net/), a security researcher,... more
Erin Gibson shines her "Modern Lady" spotlight on one of the greatest threats facing celebrity ladies today: Billy Bush of "Access Hollywood." Watch Bush fly his creep flag with stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Anniston and Julia Roberts. While some TV journalists have a nose for the story, Bush uses his schnozz to sniff famous women. Can you say "inappropriate"? Erin can! But rest assured that Bush didn't harass any women from our live studio audience, though that might be because he wasn't actually in our studio at the time.

Jennifer Lyn Petkov could well be the worst mother in the history of the world. Her launch into the realm of epic evil began two years ago when the family of 7-year-old Kathleen Edwards threw a party on the front lawn of their Trenton, Michigan home...
Kathleen Edwards is in the final stages of Huntington's Disease. A mom across the street put up a picture on her Facebook page showing the girl covered by crossbones.
It was a splendid affair complete with one of those bouncy houses. So Petkov, who lives across the street, texted Rebecca Rose, Kathleen's grandmother, asking if she could bring her own kids to the party.
But it seems Rebecca was a little slow in responding that day. You can imagine that she was just a bit busy. Besides, it's a little forward to invite yourself to someone else's party -- especially when you're Jennifer Lyn Petkov and even God hates you.
The delay in response pissed Petkov off. So she would spend the next two years taunting her neighbors over the slight.
At this point, you should know that 7-year-old Kathleen Edwards has a degenerative brain disorder that will lead to her death some day. She's in the final stages of Huntington's Disease. You should also know that Kathleen's mother died from the same illness.
So a decent woman would try to reach out of a family cursed by such illness. But Petkov is not a decent woman. Instead, she created a Facebook page devoted to taunting mother and daughter. She posted of a picture of the little girl with crossbones on her. She also posted a photo of Kathleen's mother hugging the Grim Creeper. Finally, she and her husband Scott parked a truck in front of their home that carried a homemade coffin.
Stay classy, Petkovs!
When Fox Detroit asked Jennifer why she was being such a dick, she only had this to say:
"Personal satisfaction! Because it rubs their assholes raw! Burns their assholes! Because it burns Rebecca Rose's asshole raw to make fun of her dead daughter on that page. Take it or leave it." (See the video of their immense dickery here.)
But after the story aired, the Petkov's had their home egged and began receiving death threats online. They were exposed as huge assholes, and suddenly had a change of heart.
Jennifer's husband Scott has now apologized for the taunting. He's dismantled the coffin and parked his truck behind a fence. But we're hoping the counter-harassment is not over. When you taunt a dying little girl, a mere egging of your house is insufficient punishment.Jennifer Lyn Petkov could well be the worst mother in the history of the world. Her... more
Michigan's Assistant Attorney General vs. Gay College Student Body President... Why? | Video Interview with Anderson CooperState official vs. gay student .. why?
Assistant attorney general blogs against gay student body president
By the CNN Wire Staff
September 29, 2010 2:39 a.m. EDT
Asst. D.A. explains attacks on gay student
* Michigan attorney general may take action against assistant
* Blog has criticized openly gay student assembly president for nearly six months
* Blog is composed during assistant attorney general's off-work hours
(CNN) -- For nearly six months, Andrew Shirvell, an assistant attorney general for the state of Michigan, has waged an internet campaign against college student Chris Armstrong, the openly gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Using the online moniker "Concerned Michigan Alumnus," Shirvell launched his blog in late April.
"Welcome to 'Chris Armstrong Watch,'" Shirvell wrote in his inaugural blog post. "This is a site for concerned University of Michigan alumni, students, and others who oppose the recent election of Chris Armstrong -- a RADICAL HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVIST, RACIST, ELITIST, & LIAR -- as the new head of student government."
Among other things, Shirvell has published blog posts that accuse Armstrong of going back on a campaign promise he made to minority students; engaging in "flagrant sexual promiscuity" with another male member of the student government; sexually seducing and influencing "a previously conservative [male] student" so much so that the student, according to Shirvell, "morphed into a proponent of the radical homosexual agenda"; hosting a gay orgy in his dorm room in October 2009; and trying to recruit incoming first-year students "to join the homosexual 'lifestyle.'"
Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has declined to comment directly about Shirvell's comments, saying he is pursuing legal action against the civil servant, who works on the blog during his off-hours.
"Mr. Shirvell's personal opinions are his and his alone and do not reflect the views of the Michigan Department of Attorney General," Cox said in the written statement provided by his office to CNN's "AC 360" Tuesday night. "But his immaturity and lack of judgment outside the office are clear."
Cox has not said what kind of legal action he is pursuing against Shirvell or how it might affect Shirvell's employment.
On "AC 360," Shirvell made no apologies for his blog postings, which include a picture of Armstrong with "Resign" written over his face. The same picture also had a swastika superimposed over a gay pride flag, with an arrow pointing toward Armstrong.
Shirvell acknowledged protesting outside of Armstrong's house and calling him "Satan's representative on the student assembly."
"I'm a Christian citizen exercising my First Amendment rights," Shirvell told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "I have no problem with the fact that Chris is a homosexual. I have a problem with the fact that he's advancing a radical homosexual agenda."
Armstrong has supported gender-neutral housing at the university for transgender students who haven't had sexual reassignment surgery.
Armstrong has hired an attorney, according to CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who says Armstrong may have grounds for a harassment case.

Articles critical of local government trigger cyber-attacks on journalist: Who stops the cops? - Lexington courts | Examiner.comMy short time as an Examiner covering the court system in Lexington, Kentucky has indeed been interesting. I have a history of dealing with the courts that has given me insight that most would not otherwise have. While I plan to discuss criminals and the crimes they commit, I have used my first articles to bring to light criminal behavior in the local courts, police department and city government. This choice has proven to have attracted the attention of exactly those whom I am reporting on; the criminal element in our local government. Years of dealing with harassment, false arrests and plain incompetence in local government has prepared me for the incidents we are about to discuss.
The first attack came from a Facebook invitation from the sister of a police officer accidentally killed on duty and discussed in my article, "Does Glenn Rahan Doneghy's life matter?". When I opened the invitation my virus program alerted me to the key-logger virus and informed me that it was unable to remove the virus. I bought two more programs and used the Microsoft malicious software remover program without any luck. This attack happened while I was on my new computer purchased to produce audio and video evidence of corruption and my false arrests. I immediately disconnected my hard drives and shut this computer down.
