I never thought I'd find myself living in a world where it isn't safe to love.

Domestic Stalking is my scariest, most disturbing true story, because the crime has infiltrated the modern love scene to such a frightening degree as to cause me to be horrified that true love has been banished from society by a Demonic rave from Hell.

How can you relax into a relationship with someone when there might be a possibility that at any moment they’ll dial 911 and tell the cops you’ve been leaving blood red roses on their doorstep or creeping around outside their bedroom window at night?

According to official legal definitions, Stalking can be any behavior -any behavior! Who is safe to open themselves to romantic love in such a vaguely defined sociolegal environment? Legalese ominously states that acts of Domestic Stalking are limited only by the stalker’s imagination, proximity, or tools of terror. By such broadly generalized definition the male of a romantic relationship could be incarcerated for being in possession of his razor while shaving. Likewise, the female could be put behind bars for bringing water to a boil on the stove.

If you are walking your Labrador Retriever in the same park as another person who has their Chihuahua on a leash and you pause to speak to them politely about their pet, they can have you physically detained and charged with Domestic Stalking; and there will most likely be a number of witnesses to testify at your trial that you did in fact speak politely to another person about how much you liked their pet.

While paddling blissfully aboard your kayak, if you say “Hi!” to another kayaker, they can summon the Marine Patrol to have you busted and forcefully removed from the water, your prized kayak impounded as you are sitting in the clink facing a long stretch for violating Domestic Stalking laws.

While placing your order at a restaurant, the waitstaff (servers) can have you banned from the premises because the tone of your voice luridly suggested the sociopath perversion of Domestic Stalking.

A flight attendant can have you escorted from the airliner and locked in a federal detention facility because the way you looked at her or him was so lasciviously offensive as to constitute Domestic Stalking and possibly an act of international terrorism.

You can be taken into custody for Domestic Stalking because you sat too close to another person in the dangerous low lighting level of a movie theater.

If you dedicate a song to someone over the easy listening radio during the Saturday evening Love Hour, the S.W.A.T. team can use a battering ram to break down the front door of your home, spray you in the face with pepper mace, clamp you in irons, and drag you kicking, screaming, choking, coughing, and slobbering to a cold dirty concrete and steel holding cell downtown.

A quick internet search will show a variety of statistics similarly themed to the following:

1: over 7 million people per year are stalked in the United States

2: 80% of Domestic Stalking victims are stalked by someone they know

3: 14% of victims have been stalked for over five years

4: 50% of victims experience more than one contact per week

5: 60% of female victims and 50% of male victims are stalked by a current or former intimate partner

Have a close look at that last statistic - “stalked by a current or former intimate partner” - current or former….current intimate partner! How can anyone safely allow themselves to become involved in an intimate love relationship when a current intimate partner can, by official legal definition, easily summon the authorities to have their lover arrested and thrown in jail for the much angrily hyped and maliciously hated crime of Domestic Stalking?

There are cases where a romantically involved person violently abuses or even murders their intimate partner, yet, especially with today’s shocking power of mass dissemination of gratuitous and graphic imagery and video, this only makes matters worse for the innocent because anyone who falls in love in the present sociopolitical milieu is permitting themselves to fall into vulnerability under the lurking threat of the evil hell-spawn shadow of DOMESTIC STALKING!

Who can risk love in such a despotically oppressive culture? I never thought I’d find myself living in a world where it isn’t safe to love.
