Harassment stalking presents serious problems for the stalking victim who may be physically or mentally abused or killed due to a stalking crime. This article will focus on the importance of home privacy measures as an effective way to stop stalking crimes.
Those who are stalked can greatly reduce their chances of becoming harmed or killed through the use of high level home privacy tactics.
Stalking victims are most likely to be female
Nearly one in ten women will be a stalking victim during their lives. The percentage of men who are stalked is slightly less.
Stalking crime statistics
According to Kristin Ohlson, who wrote, Stalking the Divine; Contemplating Faith With the Poor Clares, most stalking is done by ex-husbands and previous boyfriends who refuse to let go of a relationship.
More than 80 percent of women who are stalked by a current or former lover are assaulted by him, and 31 percent of these same women are sexually assualted. Ms. Ohlson also wrote that 76 percent of the women murdered each year were previously stalked by their killers.
Stalking cases last from eighteen months to forty years according to Ms. Ohlson.
Home privacy can prevent stalking crimes
Why is home privacy such an important part of preventing a stalking crime? Because about one in four violent stalking crimes occurred near or at the victims home according to a Bureau of Justice statistic for 2003.
When a criminal stalker has no way of tracing his victim to their home, the potential for violence to the stalking victim under surveillance by the stalker will be greatly reduced.
Rent or own a home anonymously for home privacy
One can become a roommate while using a pen name and break the paper trail to their previous life, and ensure that no one can track or trace them to their new residence through traditional investigative methods.
Buying a home as a trustee of a trust that becomes the legal owner of the house shields one’s name from property ownership records.
Traditional lending practices must be modified or eliminated to regain home privacy following the stalking victim’s escape.
Home privacy and all aspects of privacy living are topics that should be studied for privacy protection and to avoid a privacy invasion.
