Reply To: “Sex offense is the one crime that you can never pay for”


I am not an attorney but, if the ignorant lowlifes who have been stalking and harassing you have caused and are still causing you financial damage/harm, including across state lines (interferng with interstate commerce), there may be civil and, perhaps, criminal recourse one can take. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that your labor is your property, and the compensation you receive in exchange for your labor is your property. If someone is interfering with or depriving you of your property via harassment and stalking, there may be legal recourse. It may also constitute blackmail and extortion where property (labor, earnings) is involved:

883: Butchers’ Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746.
Defines labor as property, and the most sacred kind of property.
“Among these unalienable rights, as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence is the right of men to pursue their happiness, by which is meant, the right any lawful business or vocation, in any manner not inconsistent with the equal rights of others, which may increase their prosperity or develop their faculties, so as to give them their highest enjoyment…It has been well said that, THE PROPERTY WHICH EVERY MAN HAS IS HIS OWN LABOR, AS IT IS THE ORIGINAL FOUNDATION OF ALL OTHER PROPERTY SO IT IS THE MOST SACRED AND INVIOLABLE…”
