Ind. Courts - "A ‘voice’ for stalking victims: Women tell of fear, uncertainty, push for system changes"

Rebecca S. Green has this long story in the Sunday Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. A sample:

Advanced computer and Internet technology – and how much we all depend on it – makes it easier for stalkers and harder for law enforcement, [Rebecca Dreke, senior program associate for the National Center for Victims of Crime] said.

“(Technology) gives them tremendous access, in the most horrendous way,” Deke said, adding that the laws have not kept up with the technology.

Hacking into a computer, or email, gives stalkers access to all kinds of personal data, such as banking and social networking information.

“Then there’s no place safe for that victim. Nothing was completely secure or safe because of all those things he did,” Dreke said.
