Making a Murderer, Jessica Jones, and Gang Stalking

I just finished watching Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos’ ten-part Making a Murderer documentary (now available to be seen on Netflix).  By the end of episode 3 it should be clear to anyone familiar with the insidious patterns of gang stalking that Steven Avery, the focus of the documentary, shows several telltale signs of being a classic gang stalking target.  His tragic case involves illegal police surveillance and harassment to a Kafkaesque degree, not at all dissimilar to what Dion Fuller (the main subject of my book Chameleo) and numerous other Targeted Individuals have consistently reported for so many years.  If there’s anyone out there who’s still skeptical about the perverse lengths to which local law enforcement and American Intelligence agencies will go to torture an American citizen once they’ve elected to set their sights on him or her, then you need to watch all ten episodes of Making a Murderer.  

It’s worth noting that this is the second hit series that Netflix has released during the past few months that revolves around the phenomenon of gang stalking.  Back in November, Netflix premiered a series entitled Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter.  Though ostensibly a gritty superhero tale with noir flourishes, the truth is that the dilemma of the title character metaphorically reflects the realities of gang stalking in a fictionalized form.  Over the course of the thirteen-part series, Jessica is blatantly gang stalked by a group of perps who are being mind controlled by one man, Killgrave (portrayed by David Tennant), as opposed to an official intelligence agency; nonetheless, the emotions of distrust, alienation, anxiety, and justifiable paranoia displayed by Jessica over the course of the series will be readily recognized by any Targeted Individual.

Though the term “gang stalking” is never once uttered in Making a Murderer, Ricciardi and Demos’ documentary is very much a literal expose of the corrupt political machinery that allows gang stalking to occur; Jessica Jones, on the other hand, is a metaphorical examination of the emotional impact of gang stalking on an individual.  It’s fascinating that one network would be responsible for the production of two shows that spotlight—in a relatively artful, subtle manner—a phenomenon considered to be nonexistent by mainstream journalists.  
Does the emergence of gang stalking in recent pop culture reflect the pervasiveness of the phenomenon in general, or is there someone in charge at Netflix who actually knows the score?  As political researcher Dave Emory likes to say, “Food for thought and grounds for further research….”

An important sidenote regarding Making a Murder:  People should find it very suspicious that Nancy Grace, professional Fox News harridan, appears to be spending all of her energy these days desperately attempting to discredit Ricciardi and Demos’ documentary.  The other day Grace was quoted as saying, "I don't think our justice system should be on the shoulders of two film students [i.e., Ricciardi and Demos]."  Does Nancy Grace actually live in a universe in which she thinks justice is best served when left "on the shoulders" of judges, cops, lawyers, and Fox News tabloid hacks?  If so, she lives in a universe that's clearly not in accordance with the reality experienced by most Americans on a day to day basis.  

One of the main questions Making a Murderer asks is:  "Did Steve Avery receive a fair trial?"  Grace and pundits like her are attempting to reframe the question as follows:  "Is Steve Avery a good person?"  This is a straw man argument.  The question is irrelevant, and the purpose of this tactic is to deflect attention away from the numerous failures of law enforcement in Avery's case.   Like many gang stalkers, Grace believes that people who do not live up to her shallow, capricious moralistic principles deserve to be harassed and, if need be, railroaded into prison.  "The Ends Justify The Means" is the only commandment that exists in the gang stalker's religion.
