The #shaneslaw committee had originally included the identity of the victims on this petition. So, for no reasons other than to protect the identity of the surviving widow we removed personal identifying information except what the widow of the victim allows.
Any and all communications by State and Local Representatives, Media, Mental Health Organizations, Legal Support and Supporters and contacting the victims widow can be made directly to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
** If you need immediate help PLEASE go to your local domestic abuse shelter or go to family or if you have the means, just get as far from your abuser as possible.
On March 14, 2016, a Spring, Texas resident resident, and United States Air Force Veteran, took his life after suffering over a decade of abuse from a Narcissistic Personality disordered individual (determined by researching specific patterns of behavior exhibited by those with this disorder) that continued even after that relationship ended in fall of 2013. Both the victim and his new wife became targets, being harassed only to make their lives as difficult as possible. When the abuser could no longer get a response from the target, the harassement was then directed to another closest to the victim.... his wife. The victims fought hard within the legal system to end the harassment, but were repeatedly told nothing could be done unless there was a threat of death involved. They suffered through smear campaigning, stalking, online harassment, slander, defamation, invasion of privacy, displaying of personal, medical, and financial information on blogs online, cyberbullying, cyberstalking, intimidation, job loss, hacking, credit monitoring, accessing of credit/auto accounts, and so much more. The victims relocated twice within one year to "hide" their location, but the abuser would somehow find their whereabouts. The abuser hacked into a personal cloud acct while the victims were vacationing, accessed a folder labeled with the abusers name containing all incriminating evidence against them and deleted it, then wiped devices and password protected them. The abuser actually even made their actions known on a blog publicly. Fortunately the missing information was backed up through an Apple time capsule device and all was retrieved intact. The abuser constantly made threats of litigation of defamation and harassment against the victims, but the victims were never worried about the latter. The abuser could never provide one shred of evidence of reported harassment. The worst part is that the abuser claimed to be the victim of stalking and harassment in order to gain attention, support, and sympathy from their followers (which is a typical behavior of Narcissistic Personality disordered individuals).
Despite the mounting evidence collected by the victims, neither the law nor the courts would or could help, including the civil suit filed by the victims against their abuser. Even with standing legal documentation in place, the harasser continued their behavior. The victims were told to "continue documenting, collecting, and make reports." Even during this time, the victim had been threatened by his abuser that his long time career in IT with a large government financial entity would be in jeopardy as well as his financial well being for his refusal to communicate in anyways with his abuser. The abuser followed through with their threat. A "complaint" was made to his employer just 5 days after his decision to go "No Contact" with his abuser. (The abuser was a former employee of the same company). He felt he was wrongly terminated based on information based on "half truths" and private medical information by his abuser. The victim became even more anxious and agitated from the loss of his longterm career. The victim, an Air Force Veteran, diagnosed with PTSD, became even more depressed and mentally stressed from the continued harassment and smear campaigning of his personal and professional reputation as well as his wife's. The abuser taking advantage of his already mentally fragile state knew what buttons to push to agitate the victim making the victim look unstable, a tactic commonly used by by these type of abusers. With the victims wife having never met the abuser, she also became a victim of smear campaigning of her personal and professional life by the abuser as well. All this, while the abuser wore the mask of innocence. The constant onslaught, psychological toll, with absolutely no relief from law enforcement or litigation for over three years was more than they could bear. The victim felt the only thing he could do to be at peace and to protect his wife from further harassment was to take his life.
"People need to become aware that this type of evil lurks among us. It is very real! In fact 1 in 20 are Narcissistic Personality disordered. They are your neighbor, your parent, step parent, sibling, coworker, friend, and even your spouse. This type of abuse exists right under everyones noses. The abuse by NPD disordered individuals needs to stop! The law needs to recognize this horrid form of abuse and hold these individuals accountable for their actions, the law needs to do something to protect the victims now! Law enforcement, lawyers, judges need to be educated on identifying abusers, their abuse, and the life-long lasting and devastating effects on the victims. No one should have to feel that ending their life is the only way to escape their abuser! Ever! Lets not let the lives of the many victims that have also lost hope of getting help from the legal system, be in vain. We must speak for them and let their stories be heard! We must protect and save those that are suffering now and the future victims of these disordered, destructive individuals before its too late."
~Mrs. S, Widow of Victim/Survivor
Victims suffer through smear campaigns, stalking, having to relocate many times, online harassment, cyberbullying, intimidation, job loss, cloud/email hacking, credit monitoring, accessing of credit/auto/financial accounts, and much more. The worst part is that the abuser claims to be the victim (which is a typical behavior of Narcissistic Sociopaths). Victims suffer depression, anxiety, ptsd, and sadly some take their lives because they cannot escape their abuser.
Stay just borderline of the law to not get caught. They harass, torment, gaslight, project blame on victims, character assassination/smear campaigning, alienate victim from close friends, family, any possible support system, accuse victims of doing to them what they are in fact doing to the victim, false police reports, sets up victim and then accuses them of physical abuse, points the victim as crazy, bipolar, abusive, alcoholic to make the victim look as the bad guy. Recruits "flying monkeys" which unknowingly take part and become enabler of the abusers behaviors, Utilizes the legal system to further harass their victims for no basis other than to continue harassing the victim, and keep the "drama" going. These individuals will do any and everything possible to keep their victims silenced so that they are not exposed for their horrid abuse.
Narcissistic Sociopaths are master manipulators and pathological liars, they will lie just to lie. Law enforcement, Lawyers, Judges do not have the knowledge or understanding of Narcssistic Personality Disorder individuals and are unable to recognize they are dealing with cases that involve the NPD disordered. Therapists even find themself manipulated. Because the NPD disordered believe their own lies, they are even known to pass lie detector tests.
There currently are no laws in place to protect victims of this type of abuse. Laws need to be in place to hold these criminals accountable for their abusive and criminal actions. Something needs to be done to prevent these predators from continuing their reign of terror on past, current, and future victims. The victims are helpless in this type of battle. These individuals are disordered, cannot be fixed, and their only motive is to "Win" no matter what. Things need to change! NPD individuals should have to stand before a judge to face criminal charges for their actions. Victims must be heard, given their day in the justice system, and awarded permanent protection so they can escape these abusive situations, and the right to live a life free from their tormentors, and recover from this type abuse.
According to experts, Narcissistic Sociopaths comprise 3% to 5% of the population, or up to 1 in 20 people, much higher than one might realize. This means that up to 15 million people in the United States display symptoms of these disorders, with millions more being affected negatively by Narcissistic Sociopaths.
What is a Narcissistic Sociopath?
A Narcissistic Sociopath is a person diagnosed with comorbidity (or simultaneous presence) of both Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASP) and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Both disorders are described by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM V) as personality disorders with impairments in personality functioning with the presence of pathological personality traits.
People displaying NPD are characterized by their excessive and persistent need for others’ admiration and positive reinforcement. They generally have grandiose opinions of themselves, and believe they are superior to other people. Narcissists are also frequently convinced that they are above the normal responsibilities and obligations of everyday life, so they usually have significant difficulties maintaining employment or relationships as a result.
Narcissistic Sociopaths present a noticeable lack of regard for the rights of others, and a tendency to regularly violate those rights.
The goal of the Narcissistic Sociopath is to see that their victims’ personal and professional lives are utterly destroyed and left psychologically damaged (most will suffer from PTSD). Once the damage has been accomplished, they redirect their efforts to the next unknowing victim.
The Narcissistic Sociopath is cunning and conniving, and will work just inside of the law and even use the law to harass, hurt, and often destroy, their victim. Unfortunately, the victims are often unable to receive help or protection from any legal entity or law enforcement provider. THIS INJUSTICE HAS TO BE CHANGED! With your help, we would like to create new laws, giving protection for victims, and forcing abusers to face criminal charges.
No one should ever have to feel that taking their own life is the only option to be free of their abuser.
To prevent this type of abuse happening to others, the following are proposed as Shanes's Law:
1. Immediate and Permanent No Contact restraining/protective orders in place to protect victim for life. (Abusers continue contact to reenter victims lives after 1, 5, 10 years or longer, for Narcissistic Supply). Supervised child exchanges for those having to co-parent with an abuser.
2. Abusers to face criminal charges, up to and including jail time and limited to no access to online services. (To prevent hacking of personal/financial/credit accounts, cyberstalking, online smear campaigning, harassment, and attempts to locate and monitor the victim).
3. In the event that a victim's death/suicide is a result of NPD abuse, i.e. verbal, mental, physical, stalking, harassment. Abuser is to be held accountable and charged for murder/manslaughter. The law below needs to apply for ALL states!
(Example: ****An involuntary manslaughter charge can be brought in Massachusetts when someone causes the death of another person when engaging in reckless or wanton conduct that creates a high degree of likelihood of substantial harm.)
4. Inability for abuser to use the legal/court system for frivolous charges, false accusations, or using the legal system to further harass their victim/s. Thorough investigations required. (Narcs accuse their victims of doing to them, what they are, in-fact actually doing to the victim. Narcs also tend to manipulate their own attorneys.) In the event abusers do not abide by standing legal agreements, stiffer punishments for not doing so. (Narcs do not abide by rules or laws, because they truly believe laws do not apply to them. This is why they continue to harass, stalk, and abuse even with standing legal orders in place.)
5. When NPD abusers behavior contributed to loss of employment for victim; restitution to victim/surviving family for loss of income, potential income, and all that is included when employed. i.e. retirement, pension, etc.
Please, help save lives by signing and sharing this petition.
The petition is not for revenge against anyone. This very true, court documented case is used as an example to raise awareness of how evil and destructive the Narcissistic Personality disordered can be. There are thousands, if not millions out there suffering the same abuse. Victims are harassed, bullied, and stalked to such extremes that victims cannot live a normal life. This abuse continues on for years even long after the relationship has ended. Take a moment to read the comments. Almost ALL supporters have gone through or continue to go through this very same situation or have loved ones that have. Some survive, some don't. This has got to end! The UK and now Scotland have laws for this.... The USA should follow!
