LISTEN WHILE YOU SURF!
Does the title of this week's episode creep you out? Good, because more and more intimate personal information is available online about each and every one of us than is "healthy." Worse still is that's it's all too easy to become a victim of cyberstalking. That's because most of us disseminate far too much personal information on social nets, in chatrooms,and via photo and video sharing services. It's also far too easy to get the vast majority of us to volunteer even more intimate details regarding our religious and political affiliations, income, sexual orientation, and health-related issues. Worst of all, there are companies and cybercriminals that profit from this glut of easily obtained information. The result? We're all putting our personal and financial futures at risk. During this episode we'll show you how easy it is to glean reams of information about nearly anyone -- and importantly -- what you need to do to keep yourself from getting caught with your pants down. And if that doesn't creep you out, I don't know what will.
Don't fall for their charm. Predators can be very nice, friendly people, especially to children. If someone is continually trying to get you alone, or to isolate you from your friends or family, there is something wrong there. These people often make light or make "games" of inappropriate touching:
Touching a young girl around the breast area or any child around the crotch. They might then laugh or giggle, saying, "Oops! Did I get you?" If it's innocent, that would be the end of it. If it's more sinister, then it would happen again, probably very quickly, and could be something like: "Oops - did it again! Did I get you there?" accompanied by a touch in a sensitive place. He or she may even brazenly ask if you "liked that." Your Red Alert should be going off by then, but sometimes you tell yourself, "Oh, it was an accident," or "He's just playing a game." He's not - at least not any game you should be playing. The predator might pat you on the butt first, and then if you laughed or said it was okay after they said they were sorry, they might either pat you again, or try stroking your butt, or even putting their hand there and leaving it until you push it away - and the next thing you know, there's a hand in your crotch, or trying to make its way down your pants or up your blouse.
THOUGHT HEARTBLEED MAKES YOU VULNERABLE? TRY CYBERSTAKING
Victims of domestic violence have to worry about what happens when their abusers are in the same house with them, and now they have to worry when their abusers are nowhere in sight. Technology is making stalking, bullying, controlling, and even spying a real threat to victims. NSA type tracking and monitoring doesn’t hold a candle to the intrusive ways abusers use technology to harass and strike fear in their victims. MobiStealth was used by a murderer to read his girlfriend’s text messages to learn of her plans to leave him. The CDC reports more than 8 million women have been stalked, and 81% of those women were physically assaulted.
Michele Garcia is the director of the Stalking Resource Center for the National Center for Victims of Crime, an organization that works toward education, promoting victim safety, and holding offenders accountable. She has 20 years of experience working for victims’ rights and domestic violence.
Join us Saturday as we talk about how technology is used to control and hurt people, the many types of technology being used by stalkers, and what you can do about it if you think you are a victim. Share your comments and stories with us, and let others know about this controversial show.
On this episode of V-RADIO we will be talking to Jayne A. Hitchcock. Jayne is an expert on Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying and the author the book "Net crimes and misdemeanors.". We will be talking with Jayne about her organization called WHO@. "Working to Hault Online Abuse". Jayne will also be consulting for the upcoming "TROLL" Documentary.
I hope you will join us for this edition of V-RADIO.
Stalking is not something new. As society has evolved the terms applied to it have evolved as well. We have called it harassment, we have called it an annoyance, and now we refer to it as a domestic violence crime. Is it really? What happened to romance where the male used to "court " and "woe" the female? Is this dead now? Is there no romance?
Stalking is defined in this program as a pattern of repeated and unwanted attention. This leads to harassment and other courses of conduct directed at someone which reasonably causes them fear. California led the nation in coining the term stalking and that state defined a set of behaviors that define this as deviant conduct now prohibited by law. There has been unprecedented interest in stalking since then as antistalking legislation has been passed in every state and the District of Columbia.
There is a relationship between homicide and domestic violence often assumed but not empirically proven. Statistics on homicides in the United States come from Uniform Crime Reports and whatever gets databased by the local police department according to the statutes they have to work with which define what a crime is. Only recently have we really databased and documented relationships between perpetrators and their victims.
In this show we will explore what homicide is. We will discuss how it is defined, how it includes the killing of a human being by an act, or a procurement, or an omission of another human being. While intentionally causing death to another may be homicide it may not necessarily be murder. In this show we will explore the differences between stalking and homicide and the overall association of each to domestic violence.

Let's talk PI's. Ed Opperman has extensive experience in cyberstalking and cyber bullying investigations, and online defamation cases.
Do you think you can say anything you want about someone else online? Did you meet somebody online. Do you think you are being catfished? Or, do you think your significant other has someone on the side? Do you want to know how digital forensics work in high profile stories like Tiger Woods, Charlie Sheen Ashton Kutcher, Howard Stern, Sarah Palin and the Secret Service Scandal in Colombia? To find the answer to questions like these, you need an online infidelity investigator. My guest for this show Ed Opperman invented a method to trace a persons email back to online dating sites and personal ads.
Ed also had a role in the George Zimmerman trial. He located Zimmerman and the 911 tapes.

Should their be definite laws against this behavior. Have you ever stalked someone in person or via the internet? What were the consequences? Let's discuss the blurry lines of being a stalker and being stalked!
Well folks, you're in for real treat!
Deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt has agreed to call-in to the show today. He's asked that no other callers be allowed on.
Week's ago Schmalfeldt fled in cowardly silence when first offered a chance -- a challenge of sorts -- to call in to the show.
Ali A. Akbar is allowing Schmalfeldt to take the challenge.
Recently, Ali wrote about how Schmalfeldt's harassment has risen to the level of unlawful behavior and why Ali is now seeking relief with the proper courts and law enforcement agencies that have jurisdiction.
