Why nobody wants to call it stalking
"See you may have missed the details of this story unless you spend a lot of time online the young woman an instagram influence her named Bianca Devon's was murdered in Utica New York this this week. Please tell me that they believe that the suspect left this graffiti message on the ground saying may you never forget me photos. We're taking her and we're posted on social media or chat platforms. They were posted on there which sled people to become concern into contact. The Police Bianco was allegedly killed by Brandon Clark a man she had met online and that's also where her murder was posted in gruesome fashion and when the incident was first reported because of some of those details it was reported that she was stocked and stocking is an interesting and potentially accurate term for what allegedly happened but not according to police one of the other rumors were hearing is that there was a stocking incident a police spokesperson said she met with him willingly and that raises an interesting question if the victim met with her killer willingly does that mean it can't be stocking. How do we define that kind of crime? The story of Bianca's murder landed the same day as a threat on twitter which asked victims to share their experiences with their stockers. You'll probably not be shocked to hear that. Many of them had in fact met with their stockers willingly at some point most of them were sharing stories like that very vaguely and for the first time so what qualifies an incident the kind of incident that we clearly know can and does and in murder as stocking what options do victims have in. How are these crimes treated when they are reported if they are reported and what are the signs that all of us please most of all should be recognizing to help stalking victims before we all learn their story for the first time a really really ugly way? I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Julie loaned is an activist and educator around sexual violence and criminal harassment. She is also the creator of a project called outside of the shadows a project on criminal harassment in Canada so the first thing I want to ask you <hes> because of the incredibly disturbing story that made the rounds this week is when you see a a story like the one out of New York that I just described. What's the first thing that goes through your head a someone who lives this everyday well for me? The reason why this story was so upsetting setting was because it combined to other things that I have deep personal and professional connection to which is stalking criminal harassment and in cells and men's rights activists and kind of misogynous activists online and so to see both of those pieces come together. <hes> is really horrifying. What do you think happens in the media in sort of the hours and days after a story like this breaks because there's a ton of discussion around ended and immediately come sort of editorials and the discussion of cells and etc.? I'm really tired of people having hot takes about in cells or hot takes about even on long island stocking as though this is a new phenomenon and then it very quickly becomes sensationalized very quickly has yeah all of these sort of think pieces about it. We're talking about something as old as time. The assumption that women can't be trusted the assumption that women are telling you that they want something in but in fact they just want to be friends that women are using you that women are shifty. I mean these are like imbued. In most religious texts for example right like this is an old story and when it comes to stocking this is also something that women have experiencing for a very. Very Long Time and there's this real trend lately to act as though there's been some sort of uptaken it when in fact we know that technology apps different kinds of of things that are coming out are just new tools for an old form of violence and and most people who are being stalked even when most of it is online. They're still a kind of hurrell component to it. They're still someone following them physically showing up at their house showing up at their place of work and so I get really frustrated when people act look like Oh my God like people the Internet is like no. It's just another tool that we've given soccer's to us but the stuff has been going on forever. So why don't you lay out what is covered by stocking because this is one of the things things that that was the case in point in this recent story is that the the woman who was murdered had had a relationship with the alleged killer and maybe that means it wasn't stocking after all because the initial story said it was first of all. It's really really important for folks to know that the vast majority of victims of stalking are women. The vast majority of stockers are men even when the victim itself is a man men are more likely to be stopped by a man than by a woman and women are far more likely to be stopped by someone that they know and so so the idea that it can't be stocking if someone that you consented to meet with date sleep with Mary is absolutely false. Criminal harassment in Canada is an umbrella term that covers a whole array of behavior but the root of it is repeated an unwanted monitoring of some way shape or form of both the person the person's whereabouts so monitoring their home their place of work or monitoring folks around them so trying badgering their friends and family family to find out where that person is and the goal is really to that surveillance that monitoring that idea that you can't take a breath take a step without me knowing where you are and without you knowing that I'm watching you. How does that start in a typical typical case without asking you to point to one oftentimes especially when the two people know each other it starts with some semblance of conflict in that could be someone breaks up with you? Someone rejects you you know maybe they fired you from their place of work so there's really some semblance of a of a break in some way shape or form where the person says even politely. This isn't working out. You know I think we should go separate ways and then that person just doesn't let it go oftentimes it can also be in the in the context of I. I have a crush on this person. I really like this person and they're being nice to me and I'm taking it is an indication that they're interested in me and so I'm going to escalate the behavior oftentimes like intimate partner violence for example starts in a seemingly kind of small way where the person might think am. I reading too much into this. Maybe they just happened to be there. Maybe they're just really invested in my social media content and that's why they like all my posts in there the first person to comment on my photos and then oftentimes it's slowly escalates from there which is what contributes to the victim feeling. Maybe I'm just being dramatic and like this person's just being nice or maybe they're just awkward and I'm reading too much into it and oftentimes by the time they realize the full breadth of what's going on. It's actually been going on significantly AH longer than they thought well one of the other reasons we wanted to talk to you is because there was a huge threat on twitter this week that I think <hes> probably was not surprising at all to a lot of people and then extremely surprising to some can you tell me about it and maybe sort of read me the first post and a couple couple of examples so a twitter user named Michelle Guido asked women dear women. If you are comfortable please share your stalker stories below on this thread the idea that this is rare needs to stop re tweet to help spread awareness enough jeff enough and similar to the METOO Hashtag similar to been raped never reported hashtag women flooded the thread with their stories and what was so interesting to me but devastating was how. How tweet after tweet after tweet was a classic case of stocking both from an emotional standpoint but also from a criminal standpoint like these are things that meet the legal threshold in this country anyway and women had imbued self-doubt out into the tweet itself so this idea of I don't know if this is really considered stalking but I had this guy in high school or I don't know if this really counts and that is so heartbreaking to me but so unbelievably common that women have these experiences that until someone puts a label on it? You hadn't really thought of it in that light you just thought this kind of crap and thing that happened to you in high school or maybe this weird experience you had at this particular job and so oftentimes it's only in hearing other people's stories that they start to kind of put the pieces pieces together and realize why have every right to have released wrong feelings about the experience because it really was a criminal act. The you mentioned been raped never reported how often is stalking reported like the incidents described in in that thread stalking like all forms of gender-based violence in this country is incredibly under reported. It's oftentimes reported in the context of other crimes so this person vandalize my home which means they were watching my home home which means a criminal harassment charges added on even when you're looking at policing criminal harassment charges rarely stand on their own. They're oftentimes attached to an intimate partner violence charge show you know battery and stocking fucking vandalizing something stocking impersonation hockey into their computer like all of those kinds of things so it's oftentimes that's how women will sort of tell that story and again in Canada because it's referred to as criminal harassment and not stalking oftentimes women. I don't even know what criminal harassment is. I don't even know what the threshold is so they just sort of tell the story and if you're lucky you have a detective or a nine one one dispatcher who can read between the lines and figure out okay. This is actually what the root of what's happening here but it's really often seen as sort of adjacent to a more serious crime and that's something that I am personally trying to advocate to change is that criminal harassment in and of itself is a form of terrorists wrestler terrorizing another human being. It's psychologically damaging and I don't need to and I shouldn't have to physically assault you for that criminal harassment to be taken seriously. What is the threshold for people who don't know where might have a story that they questioned whether or not it reaches up while I wish I could tell you what the threshold is but it's very vague in the criminal code and so oftentimes it really is up to the nine one one dispatch or the detective? That's working on your case to see the tear in your is a case in in Montreal right now with Sue Montgomery who's the mayor of one of the outlying verbs in Montreal who by her definition has been stocked by man for over twenty years he started stalking her when she was a journalist and then when she became elected he had other opportunities to Harasser just this month the judge concluded that what he was doing absolutely was stocking absolutely was criminal harassment but because sued did not that show fear when she confronted him and there's video evidence of her confronting him at one of her events because she did not look afraid it did not meet the threshold of criminal harassment what yeah that's insane. It's absolutely insane and it enrages. You just need to my core. Because what are women supposed to do if I show that I'm upset visibly then I'm dismissed as an unreliable witness. I'm dismisses hysterical. I'm dismisses like Oh my God like get over yourself and then additionally in this culture that we're in right now so much of the response around me to women just kind of stand up for themselves. These men don't know what they're doing. They're not reading your signals. There's miscommunication unless you put your foot down. How is he gonNA know okay cool? Put My foot down and now you're saying well. I didn't look. Look scared and being scared is the threshold that is not okay like what are women supposed to do like who is the right person to be taken seriously when it comes to criminal harassment and so I what happened to sue is horrifying <unk> horrifying but it's incredibly common and so- criminal harassment is on one case you know repeated on wanted all of those kinds of things contact contact with your family surveillance but you also need to meet this criteria of showing fear and reasonably had a reason to be afraid of this person will who decides that and if it's a judge what are they using to decide that oftentimes some pretty archaic stereotypes of what steer looks like particularly early in women and so you have women were going through the process where putting themselves out there and are being shut down by the legal system because you just didn't look afraid enough like we should be outraged that you mentioned a few minutes ago that it <hes> It depends on whether or not you get a good detective who understands it. How much education is they're? They're left to be done in how how variable I guess is the police response when this is reported the police response to gender-based violence writ large is horrifying. It's terrible I mean I it's just like it makes me inarticulate like it just makes me so angry about the response in general but when it comes to criminal harassment in my case like personally I've contacted police on three separate occasions for Chris Three separate people who were harassing me in a way that met the criminal code in all three cases the police absolutely believed it was happening but they didn't really do anything about it and so you know okay on the surface great you can see you know here. Are the messages here.
