Gang Stalking is a RICO CRIME and the criminal acts associated and carried out to fulfill it's grander purpose befit the criteria of a Hate Crime, though not indicative to any one sector as a "hate crime" is legally defined. i.e.: age, race, disabled, sexual orientation, etc.
In the USA, there already is a highly specific law, under which it is pretty well impossible for any two or more persons to carry out a stalking campaign against a citizen, without conspiring to deny that citizen their legal and constitutional rights. Under USC18 section 241, this is an offence normally punishable by a fine and/or up to ten years imprisonment. But if the conspiracy leads to a loss of life, and the usual qualifications of premeditated murder are not specified (because murder is not a Federal offence and would be dealt with under county or state law if it had happened) then the penalty can be life imprisonment, or death. This needs to be acknowledged and enforced as it relates to the aforementioned crime of Vigilante Stalking, Gang Stalking, Community Stalking, Cause Stalking and any other same of similar form of stalking See definition http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Gang%20Stalking
This legislation must be written to address the use of covert electronic harassment and torture technology, a commonality in unison with the aforementioned "Gang Stalking"
