First watch this, until the segment about false memory is finished. Scott Adams.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a little famous? There is a video by Scott – which I can’t find right now – where he talks about his Canadian stalker, who Scott says “every few years … fills the Internet with stories of how I secretly travel to Canada to ransack her apartment and sexually abuse everyone I meet along the way. She also believes everything I write in any forum is actually an intended insult to her personally.” See Dilbert Blog for the whole story. It’s also mentioned here: 7 Creepiest Celebrity Stalker Stories.
Here is Tucker Carlson telling his story about a false accusation of sexual assault:
Finally, here is Bill Whittle explaining what it was like to be accused of being a racist:
I had a stalker once. I never learned her identity, but she was jealous of a relationship I had with a man who, apparently, she believed belonged to her. She sent nasty letters to me at work. She wrote nasty things about me in spray paint on the glass doors of my office. She spray painted the brick walls and glass sliding door of my townhouse. She poured Karo syrup into my gas tank. She called my home late at night and terrorized my family, saying horrible things about me to my mother, who was living with me at the time. This was back in the 1970’s; I didn’t have an answering machine; as I recall, they weren’t widely available at the time. I complained to the phone company and kept a record of calls and nothing was ever done to stop the harassment. I finally moved and changed my telephone number.
Evil and/or mentally sick people can ruin your life. I know. It was a long time ago, but I’ll never forget.
