I will also go further while including Briefly New York Stalking Laws as well as Ohio, Arizona, and California……..All states have similar laws against this form of communication. I would like to remind you that my response has been warranted by the actions of individuals harassing and stalking me. This entire blog is only a response and in no form indicates I have been communicating in a way that would be understood as harassment or stalking.

The problem with the behavior of not only Glen Randy Schoen but his followers acting in such a manner to threaten my life and harass me is that they do not comprehend how their behavior is being retained. None of you understand how much I know about you or what my intentions are. 

You see this is why my opinion is that a certain individual is “pretending” because if that individual knew the law and practiced the law they would realize how much of a contradiction it would be to act in such a way. So go ahead, beg to follow this page. Try to use your credentials to log in because guess what, I saved a record of that as well. That is your mistake to identify yourself further. I reserve the right to make this entire page private or public as I see fit. Nothing can be done about that. You are out of your league, all of you. Go ahead get yourself into something you know nothing about and become another statistic.
