In this era of global terrorism and unprecedented government surveillance, our collective sense of fear and paranoia has rarely been so elevated. That's certainly the case for the subjects of the fascinating documentary titled Targeted Individuals. Produced by the always reliable and provocative VICE News, the film profiles a growing subculture that shares the belief that their every move is being monitored and manipulated as part of an ominous global conspiracy.

The film opens at a conference in the U.K. which is attended by more than 60 of these targeted individuals. Some claim they are frequently stalked by operatives who stop and feed them messages on the street. Others say they have implanted devices in their heads which allow these forces to read their thoughts and transmit communications via satellite.

The Internet has provided a forum where new and established members of this community can converse about their struggles, and organize a movement to support one another while raising public awareness. Many of them feel isolated, fearful, and ill-equipped to hold a job or successfully communicate their plight to others outside of the community.

The filmmakers do not approach these troubled subjects with snarky cynicism. Instead, they provide them with an opportunity to express their beliefs and experiences without the fear of ridicule. Flagrant criticism would only burrow them further into their shell of isolation. One of the most prominent members of the community shows a recent CAT scan and dental x-ray which both indicate the appearance of a mystery implant. Another shows the lead sheet she wears to protect herself from alien transmissions, and discusses her impulse to move from city to city to avoid being tracked.

The medical community justifiably believes these individuals suffer from varying degrees of schizophrenia and other mental disorders. The Internet has empowered them to seek out the companionship of others who share in their delusions. Society at large has a shameful history when it comes to addressing mental health concerns. These are some of the victims who have fallen through the cracks, and their conditions have only worsened as they've begun to organize in greater numbers.

Targeted Individuals is an intensely empathetic portrait of mental illness that feels specific to our current culture of unease.

    A lot of this is transdimensional. They're being attacked from the Astral plane.

    What the interviewer was feeling in the back of that guy's mouth were "normal" unerupted third molars (wisdom teeth). They're just teeth that developed to a certain point but never broke through . It's actually quite common. Many people have them extracted at a certain point in their life if they're causing health problems, but if they're not, many people simply ignore them and live their entire lives without dealing with them. I'm over sixty years of age and have two of them, never been an issue, but if you probe them with a finger they're quite easy to feel as 'hard' objects below the gums. After watching this video, I'm left believing the following regarding people who are caught up in the whole "targeted individual" thing. I'd suggest that it takes a fairly oversized ego in the first place to believe that the "Powers That Be" are all that interested in them as individuals. Combine that with a diagnosis of schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder and you're on your way. I also couldn't help but wonder how much of the "leadership" component of the "movement" consisted of people just in it for a buck selling books and seats at conferences.

    It's too bad that this reporter's condescending attitude is preventing him from being a good reporter. A good reporter would get some Geiger counters and measure any possible radiation present. The presence or absence of radiation would solve this enigma pretty quickly wouldn't it?

    I am targeted and mistreated by the organs of our (germanic but not english) „state of law“ since the late 60s, with many symptoms as described e.g. at, who have a long list they got from yet another site... These symptoms described in that very long list differ somehow from those mentioned in this new film, they sound more like „normal“ secret service skunk methods, and less spectacular / ridiculous than in the film. However, this list says only, what the skunk service may do (*all* of their instruments of nonbloody warfare against humans, although implants or rays from satellites are not mentioned), and nothing about what their targets did *before* (to deserve getting the TI status-cum-treatment), nor about what they are found to come up with for their protection or fighting back *after* they remarked what is being done to them. This film was only about this last point, and choose to show the more ridiculous measures (thankfully without painting them as being ridiculous). As to the „professionals“ (e.g. the lady psychologist at the end), it is obvious that they say what they must if they don‘t want to become a case who did some of those things *before* which make you a TI from then on until the end of your life. Their „professional assessments“ are completely worthless, since they are exactly as terrorized as their cases, and only capitulated from before their start, which is a precondition for a permission to work „normally“ in a rogue state.

    It may not be a coincidence that the „long list“ mentioned above seems to have been written in 2008 already (and it took so many years before I, as someone eagerly looking for explanations, saw it for the first time) - and 2008 was the start of the Obama regime which at that time sailed full steam towards killing off all opposition to its evil plans: individuals by TI techniques, resisting countries by colour revolutions, and finally the eternal main enemy, Russia, by the next „justified“ World War III, „in response“ to their MH17 sham. Since then this WW is pending, „yet to be done“. So, it looks as if the combat of the skunk regimes and their skunk services against every possible opposition was much intensified in 2008, so that those techniques used in the 60s already (und surely before) finally became visible as a phenomenon of its own, to be studied by its victims in order to find a remedy. The real remedy would be to dismantle the rogue states who spread this evil - as it seems mainly (only?) in the allgermanic empire of England-America-Germany.


    So so. There's a whole lot more to this than chose to cover. Vice, by the way, attended lamestream media dinner events hosted by DNC chair John Podesta... along with Huff Post and the rest of the bought off... I'm not so high on Vice after finding out about that.

    If you want to know more, get: "Guinea Pigs" by Dr. John Hall, "Project Soul Catcher (Vol II)" by double Phd and former CIA mind control technology whistle blower Dr. Robert Duncan, Michael Bell "The Invisible Crime," etc.

    The government's MK Ultra human experimentation program is only part of it. Mafias' are also involved. Victims are found opportunistically, chosen by AI technology, chosen because of their DNA, chosen because of their activism to discredit and silence them, etc.

    I knew people who had friends who joined the intelligence community and experienced complete personality changes after their training. If anyone is thinking about getting involved in the military or intelligence communities - think again. You will be on the front line of their experimentation programs.

    You call this a documentary? It's a movie with real, professional actors. The script is lousy though. Why would they make a movie like this? What's the point?

    With all due respect, you are doing true targeted individuals a disservice by recommending the reads like Michael Bell "The Invisible Crime". This film and "books" like Michael Bell "The Invisible Crime" are made with the sole purpose of ridiculing targets of cyber-stalking and community mobbing (gone global thanks to the Internet). If you want the truth read about Jane Clift (blacklisted and branded as 'potentially violent'), community red-flagging, stalking by proxy... This film is a great cover-up for internet-community mobbing and cyberstalking if you are hiding stuff on your kid sister. Otherwise disgusting!

    Please help the victims of the National Institute of Justice's "intelligent surveillance" research. The NIJ is using our taxpayer dollars to violate our constitutional rights, recklessly endanger our lives, and torture us 24/7. Senator Kaine told me that this program funds Newport News Police Department and Virginia state police. Both are required to have a signed informed consent form for each human subject. The NIJ follows the common rule. Citizens need to request the name and contact number for the IRB as well as the grant administrator. We need to ask our senators to defund the NIJ for failure to follow the "common rule" and for violations of our constitutional rights as well as the torture and murder of thousands of innocent citizens. The perps are state and local police. The funding is the NIJ. They must allow us to opt out. The NIJ are required by law to pay for our attorney fees, medical expenses, and any change in financial position as well as punitive damages! I now have cancer throughout my body as a direct result of this technology. They are to blame!

    From the thoughtless description: "others who share in their delusions"

    When you hear a surgeon describe how a notable person and the surgeon were talking and it came up that he had something in the flesh of his ear. The surgeon offered to look at it ...and remove it. The surgeon describes feeling that something was indeed there, cutting with a scalpel to expose it and saw a very small shiny metal object. When he looked away to grab forceps to remove the object, coming back up to extract, the object had moved. He set the forceps down, cut some more, grabbed his forceps, and the object had moved. He told his patient what was going on and the patient said to just leave it before you end up cutting my ear off. Can't recall how many time the attempt was made but the surgeon reluctantly agreed after taking a moment to realize the patient was probably correct.

    Heard that interview many years ago. Who knows what technology is available today. However, also saw a docu, possibly on this website, in part showing another targeted individual who I think was outspoken or wrote books about some aspect or sector of the nefarious evil doers, where a satellite dish service company of some sort moved in next door to him. If I recall, he began getting headaches, feeling tired, and such. He mentioned to a friend and the friend who hadn't visited in some time, asked how long that company had been next door. So they began looking around the borders of the targeted individuals property and found a satellite dish amongst the shrubbery focused at his office window with the cables heading off to that company bldg. Can't recall the details of if he called them and threatened to sue or called the authorities or what but in short order the supposed satellite company next door packed up and left.

    Yet in the description of this vice of a docu, would have you believe the above surgeon and the friend who found the dish transmitter to be "delusional".

    Like with most anything, their are the legitimate and those who "may" not be. Have let their mind take a walk off the map and attribute all of their problems to something other than themselves to protect their ego.

    Has "VICE" done a docu on one of the most devastating occurrences still ongoing called GeoEngineering and Chemtrails? Some desire not to believe what is happening right above them and refuse to do a little homework that would explain it quite well. These people consider themselves to be the smarter ones, scoffing at "the idiots who believe such nonsense". Yet the evidence is plentiful, visible, and do not act like contrails.

    So the point is, who are the "delusional"? And who are those providing cover for the nefarious evil doers?

    What is truly amazing to me is that the evil pukes so easily find minions to perpetrate their plans. All it takes is some cash and people will sell out and do evil to others. The world seems like it has a few too many psychopaths and those who lack moral fortitude. Congress seems jammed packed with those or there would be hardly any suffering in the usa whatsoever.

    Govt is the problem. And of course obama considered any one who said so to be an enemy of the state. By the way "Enemy of the State" is a movie that depicts a targeted individual who had the potential to expose improper activity by an agency of the govt.

    Why do you think all the force of the media and fake intelligence agency leaks are perpetrated against the targeted individual Trump? Because the socialist-communist who have taken over the democrat party and much of the republican party are vulnerable to exposure. Rapid fire smoke screens and diversions so that no time is left to investigate the truly guilty.

    It is real these people are not crazy they are at war with outside evil forces. What they don't know is that the solution to these attacks is Jesus Christ.

    What journalism! I missed all the targeted individuals you spoke with, there are thousands, they are not hard to find. Isn't it a writer's job to investigate, not regurgitate bits and pieces of others work? It amazes me that X-NSA , NASA, CIA , Scientists , X-Military continue to discuss this horrible program, to bring awareness & truth to this . You must have missed that. I Imagine if you had put in any time on this we would be reading a totally different article. Keep up the good work and continue with your in depth , investigative work. I don't believe 20/20 or 60 Minutes will be knocking anytime soon .

    You dumb, evil, corrupt paid minion. You are one of the many misinformationalist Internet Trolls hired to help hide this criminal based CIA torture and experimentation program. You dog of hell, the Directed Energy Weapons are US Patent Radio Frequencies technology that needs to be exposed to keep others from becoming victims of the NWO and a rouge part of the CIA. HOW can you explain TIs numbers and their numbers are growing because of liars like you who hide the truth in unrighteousness.
    What you fail to realize is the future intent of this Program is to be used for global control, dominance, and depopulation thorough torture and Remote Nueral Monitoring (also a US PATENT ). The current victims today are unwillingly teaching THEM what future victims will do to escape, how they handle it, their reactions, etc. This is why victims are of every race, highly intelligent, and highly credible, and mostly live in industrial nations. THEIR diabolical thinking is if these people can't get out of it or stop it then...
    You are a fool and your greed for money that causes you to sellout humanity will one day send them knocking at your door.
