The government has for a long time followed and investigated suspects such as drug dealers, terrorists, and known criminals, although the stalking was resource-intensive and relatively expensive.

Gang stalking is also believed by many to be a purposeful form of directed aggression towards people whom the government considers unsavory. It is therefore oftentimes considered a modern-day version of historical surveillance, discrediting and psychological torture/warfare programs. The most notable of these are COINTELPRO, MKUltra and Zersetzung.

New technologies such as the ability to track people using fake cell towers has enabled the automation of detecting when someone is 'on the move'. Combined with mapping systems and satnav technology, it has enabled much more efficient stalking of individuals.

Now a lot of people who would not previously have been followed, including people with no criminal history whatsoever - are being placed on watch lists for years and even decades.

This is a global phenomenon and it appears to be happening in countries all over the world.
