Use of anti-harassment orders and Chronic Nuisance Ordinances (CNOs) to constructively evict

Real estate mobbing, with strong civil and criminal components, is a two-pronged approach to turning over a property based on constant complaints of civil and criminal code violations side-by-side with a “surround-sound” method of clandestine criminal harassment in which  “mobbers” work as “tenant relocators” from the flanking residences. Real estate mobbing, also referred to as “property mobbing,” puts the victim residence under siege in what those “mobbing” me have bragged is “property war,” by criminalizing the tenancy of the victim resident, and by laying waste to her life.

In my own case, the connection between the monitoring, stalking, and criminal harassment into my home and the drive to gentrify the neighborhood, is revealed by a years-long neighborhood bullying situation whose documented players include real estate developers, their real estate agents, and a malignant neighborhood watch in concert with some criminal real estate speculators apparently skilled in the methods of “tenant relocation.” The criminal harassment is an escalation of what the mobbers once quipped was “clearing by smearing.” This criminal method was taken up when I was not expelled by methods more firmly planted in the “civil” arena, and when neither the Seattle Police Department (SPD) nor the City of Seattle reined in a neighborhood watch that went so far as to copy SPD on their plan to use civil code enforcement to turn over some single-family homes that were leased to renters. In this way, mobbing in my neighborhood has occurred as a continuum from the civil to the criminal, and ultimately with both prongs continuing side by side.

Quick links to the “On being mobbed” blog series: Unmotivated sound and the narrative of mobbing

Just a note, the Recommended reading on the “On being mobbed” blog page has been edited to add a section for the blog series on the use of “unmotivated” sound in real estate mobbing. The final blog entry on unmotivated sound is yet to come and will focus on mobbing sound and aerial warfare. Stay tuned also for a post on how real estate mobbers abuse civil anti-harassment orders to criminalize tenancy and constructively evict. ▪

Police practice must change to protect us from mobbing and IoT crimes

The Seattle Police Department visited me the other day. I didn’t invite them. And I’m pretty sure any attorney would have told me to not to speak to them outside of her presence. But I haven’t quite yet retained an attorney, and it didn’t immediately occur to me to turn them away, not even when I asked what they wanted and the male officer glibly said that their unit “gives aid.” During the hour or so the two officers and the “social worker” they said always comes with them stood in my home, it was suggested to me no less than three times that I might find it easier to cope with my “stress” and this “stressful time” if I had someone to “talk to.” These suggestions that I should see a shrink came chiefly from the male officer. The social worker pretty much said nothing; perhaps she was observing (me). The female officer distinguished herself by suggesting that the attorney I’d talked to about representing me, might be overcharging me. Actually, what she said, I believe, is that he might be “taking” me. I’ll be sure to pass her opinion along to my attorney.

$5,000 for turning in Seattle real estate mobbers is offering a $5,000 reward for the real estate mobbers or “tenant relocators” who continue in their attempt to harass the author of this blog out of her home in northeast Seattle in order to force its sale to real estate speculators. The reward will likely be matched and will be given for the arrest and prosecution of the mobbers themselves, or those in the neighborhood watch or in business with them who were instrumental in installing the mobbers in the houses around the author of this blog. This is a serial crime and there may be a circle of people who “clear” residents for developers or for their own ventures, so it’s possible that if you’ve experienced something similar or heard of something similar, that some of the same people may be involved.
