I've nothin to offer but that you are in my thoughts and hopes, and if you need any financial asistance I have a little to give.

Be strong, and listen to all the clever people here.

I'm also a random East-coast internet stranger: there's a lot of us, it seems.

I've made a post in one of the communities I moderate (it's pretty large) and posted on my Twitter and my Facebook. Is it okay to spread this outside of Livejournal? I'm thinking about making a Facebook group to make it even more widespread--unless there's already one of those? Does anyone know? Would that get you into more trouble or something, crabby_lioness?

This is not okay and I'm keeping you all in my thoughts. If I had more power, or connections, I would do more.

Please spread this everywhere, including FB. Thank you!

Here via gospelofbvvt, and agree with basically all the advice given, and have none of my own. I wish you all the best and hope you can get all this settled and the guilty parties properly punished for their baseless harassment.

Holy shit. Here via a friend of a friend, but I will emphatically second everything said about getting the federal authorities involved immediately. Call the ACLU, call the Southern Poverty Law Center, call your congressman/woman and do it immediately. There is no over-reaction to this situation you can take along those lines. Record everything you can (dates, times, names, descriptions of clothing and faces, ID numbers, license plates, times you leave and enter your home - all of it) and keep that information somewhere safe and outside your home. Do you have a local branch of a large bank? Get them to open a safe deposit box for you and keep everything in there.

You and your family are clearly people who are used to taking care of yourselves and maintaining independence, but speaking as somebody who not only experienced something like this as a kid - but has now grown up to study the law and has seen cases like this, I cannot be clear enough with you on this point:

You are under attack and you will not be able to defend yourselves adequately as things stand. In court. In practice. If it comes to somebody showing up to take your kids, which is what those visits by DHS-? were groundwork for. Any of it, if this many of the local authorities are in on this. You've got a good method of noting down the chronology of events, but you've got no direct evidence that they happened beyond your own word. The answering machine is gone. Your house has been repeatedly invaded. Your child has been taken from your custody and your home without your knowledge or consent - it doesn't make a difference if he was returned five seconds later, that is exactly what occurred.

If you can't leave the house, you need to have visitors to your home to not only witness the damage done to your house, but to observe how you interact with your children. Galling and ugly as that is to believe, it is a line of defence you need to take. Additionally, the presence of others will very likely deter further attacks, as the pattern they've established involves targeting you and your husband and children when you are outwith the presence of witnesses. Otherwise, please just get out of there. You and your family are currently the victims of a prolonged attack, and no matter how admirably level-headed and calm you are about dealing with it as it unfolds please have no illusions - it is only going to escalate. You can either escalate it by calling in federal authorities and legal advice, or they will escalate it by taking further action against you.

Please take care of yourselves. And good luck.

Here via gospelofbvvt, and boosting the signal via my LJ and Facebook. Wish I could do more to help, but you've already gotten all of the advice that I'd give - document, call the media, call the FBI, and if you can, get a webcam set up that they can't see, but will upload everything it sees.

Good luck!

what are the laws regarding recording people by you? did you get secruity cameras? those are different than hiding a recorder in another's house.

Reposting. You deserve to be heard.
Oct. 14th, 2010 06:40 am (UTC)
I am an internet stranger and with almost nothing in common with you in terms of fandom or geography, but I stumbled upon this and am horrified to read what has happened. I'll signalboost on my LJ, and hopefully somebody in my corner of fandom may be able to help.

Best of luck, and may you and your family remain safe and unharmed through this ordeal.

Geez. Don't know what to say other than 'hang in there!'

Good lord
I'm so sorry this is happening to you! I would be out of my mind!

Saw via ONTDCreepy.

Good luck, hope things get better <3

Saw this through ONTDcreepy. I can't do much (live in the East Coast) but I can' definitely repost this everywhere I can think of.

Good luck, my thoughts are with you <3

Found this through a link from a friend. I'm afraid that I can't help much except by linking to this, since I live on the West Coast.
