Can technology help stop a stalker?

We live in an age of constant change – it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the changes that are constantly unfolding, at such a fast pace, before our very eyes. Now, in order to get ahead of the criminals why not use technology like Familial DNA…https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/familial-dna-puts-elusive-killers-behind-bars-only-12-states-n869711  bluetooth cameras, alarm systems, etc. to stop a stalker?

Question is…

With new technologies emerging in our world, there are changes that can even out the playing field, when it comes to solving crime, so why not use those technologies to stop stalkers right in the beginning, before they have a chance to become lethal? It’s all about early intervention when it comes to stalking. And as “humans,” on this planet, why can’t we all pull together, and use the resources at our disposal in our fight against crime?

Ask yourselfhow can we change the playing field when it comes to stopping stalking? Early intervention is the key, so let’s get on the technology bandwagon, and utilize what is now available to us.

 

Tragic and predictable outcome…

This 19-year-old was murdered by her stalker and afterwards the police were contacted by 13 other victims who had previously made reports about this same stalker – these reports related to a three-year period before the murder, apart from one which related to contacts over 10 years…there were warning signs that were ignored.

Stalking could lead to an escalation of violence and potentially death

Stalking is serious!

Stalking was present in 94% of the 358 cases of criminal homicides this study looked at:

The Suzy Lamplugh Trust, which runs the National Stalking Helpline, warned that failure to take action on stalking could lead to an escalation in violence and potentially death. It called on courts to recognise stalking as a broader problem and pattern of behaviour.

Blog Security – or words I would not even have known a year ago…

Hacker in front of his computer. Dark face

We had a number of attempts by someone trying to compromise Morgan’s stalking blog a few days ago.  Thankfully none were successful and now we have a server that watches over the server that hosts the blog.  I honestly don’t know exactly what all this means, but what I do know is that we are far “safer” now than we were before.  A person very well qualified in this kind of thing feels that with almost 9 million views to the blog this is to be expected.  I now feel like this website and blog are better protected, and I will leave it at that.

Thank all you good people out there who are sharing in the fight for justice, and to that 1 bad person, well shame on you!  And take your pack somewhere else.
