According to Survivors of Stalking, “each year an estimated 1.5 million men, women and children are stalked in the U.S.” Stalking is definitely a problem in this country. Internationally countries lack the laws and enforcement and predators have little or no fear from policing agencies. Many times cultural norms will encourage if not condone completely, stalking and harassment like behaviors. However, if you believe you are a victim of an advanced or beginning threat you should take action now. You must take decisive action before the situation elevates out of control.
