speaking of crazy, or... maybe not so much? i found a website that explains gang stalking that puts it into perspective (for me, at least). things like being 'managed out' at work fits the bill.
THE DEFINTION OF GANG STALKING
Gang Stalking is stalking by multiple perpetrators, most of whom are unknown to the victim, for the expressed desire to harass using psychological abuse and intimidation.
THE GOAL OF GANG STALKING
The expressed goal of Gang Stalking is to silence a victim, drive a victim insane and possibly to the point of suicide, or destroy the victim's reputation and believably as the person will likely be viewed as mentally ill should they complain or report the abuse. Gang Stalking is also used to gather information on individuals as well as force individuals to move or leave an area.
MOTIVATIONS FOR THE ABUSE
Motivations for Gang Stalking vary. Revenge for a real or imagined offense, true or false accusations of a "horrible crime" of which the victim has gotten away with, silencing a corporate "whistle-blower", defecting from a cult, a perceived enemy of a group or organization, and "knowing too much" are all examples of possible motivations. Due consideration should be used as the motivations of the stalking groups are in no way limited to the above.
WHO ARE THE STALKERS?
The stalkers, for the most part, are everyday citizens. Other stalkers are "street thugs" who have been hired to harass and intimidate. Some Stalkers are actual Private Investigators who have been hired to gather information concerning the victim. Many stalkers are members of volunteer police groups.
WHY PEOPLE PARTICIPATE IN GANG STALKING
-Some stalkers are told lies, either positive or negative in nature, in order to gain their participation.

i saw a set up on 'what would you do' where random shoppers actually kidnapped a child for some guy because he showed them a badge, said that he was a recovery agent and that the woman with the child had stolen it from it's father. people are stupid and will do lot's of dumb things if they are given the right motivators...
