The New York Times says the space weapons ban resolution that passed in Richmond last year — and which some local officials called an embarrassment to the city, partly due to its negative impacts on the mentally ill and their families — was perhaps the biggest victory of the year for the targeted individuals community.
The article states: “Perhaps their biggest victory came last year, when believers in Richmond, Calif., persuaded the City Council to pass a resolution banning space-based weapons that they believe could be used for mind control. A similar lobbying effort is underway in Tucson.”
Targeted individuals are part of an organized group who believe they are being harassed and sickened by space-based weaponry or being trailed by stalkers, with their enemies possibly being the government or other sinister sources in power. Some believe they are being poisoned by chemtrails, which are toxins sprayed onto populations by aircraft.
The targeted population turned its attention to the city of Richmond when members of the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) on council successfully pushed for a resolution to ban space weaponry in order to appease at least one local resident claiming to be afflicted.
The resolution led to an inundation of calls to the Richmond Police Department from targeted individuals from around the world. In a statement, then-Police Chief Chris Magnus said the department lacked the resources to field so many calls.
Councilman Jael Myrick later expressed regret for voting in favor of the resolution, calling it an “embarrassment” to the city, as Richmond’s council was ridiculed in the media and on talk shows. The resolution, critics added, recklessly validated fears among paranoid citizens, which negatively impacted their loved ones.
Distressed targeted individuals wrote letters to Richmond Mayor Tom Butt and even President Obama following the Richmond resolution.
Now it appears Magnus could have to deal with another large influx of phone calls. He recently left the Richmond Police Department to become police chief in Tucson.
