Every step yoo take, I’ll…

Every step yoo take, I’ll be tracking you…

GPS as Stalking Weapon.

Connie Adams found it impossible to escape her ex-boyfriend.

He would follow her as she drove to work or ran errands. He would inexplicably pull up next to her at stoplights and once tried to run her off the highway, authorities said.

When he showed up at a bar she was visiting for the first time, on a date, Adams began to suspect Paul Seidler wasn’t operating on instinct alone.

He wasn’t _ Seidler had installed a satellite tracking device in Adams’ car, according to police in Kenosha, Wis., 30 miles south of Milwaukee.

Just as the global satellite positioning system can help save lives, so can its abuse endanger them, advocates of stalking victims say.

“As technology advances, it’s going to be almost impossible for victims to flee and get to safety,” said Cindy Southworth, director of technology at the National Network to End Domestic Violence in Washington.” [Smart Mobs]
