Todd Shanks Stalking Family Members in Portland, Oregon

Report #: 402 - 3 Comments
Date Reported: Thursday, May 17, 2012
Status: Past Incident
Severity: High - Cyberstalking
Primary Weapon: Investigative Services
Specific Location: West Linn
City/Local Area: Portland
State/Territory: Oregon
Region: United States

A relative told me recently that some random dude named Todd Shanks in Portland, Oregon had cyberstalked her by tracking down her cell phone number and calling her as part of a stalking campaign against me. I don't know much about Shanks other than the fact that he has nothing better to do than stalk random people and harass their relatives when he should mind his own business.

UPDATE: Upon further investigation it turned out that this stalker actually was one of the worst types of stalkers ever known to man, a police officer who believes that his job gives him some kind of right to stalk members of the public just because some judge wants to speak with them. Police officers believe all too often that they can operate with impunity because of their job title and as a result they commit multiple felonies against the general public knowing full well that they will escape justice. Those days are at an end thanks to the internet where anyone can hold cops accountable for their actions whether those actions are protected by law or not.

In the future I recommend that deputy Shanks consider the possible consequences of his actions before harassing people who have more important things to do than grant him the privilege of an audience. If he has a problem with this then he needs to stop stalking people.

Cyberstalking and Cyberbullying are two different things. Careful, this could be libel...

This reports has been updated to include a link to the subject on because there is more to this story. For speaking out against him online I was harassed by Portland Police Officers over it. They wanted to talk to me about something else, were rude, and mentioned this profile as if to say that this was one of the reasons they were giving me a hard time over that other thing.

I really thought I was being sarcastic enough with this page and it was not appropriate to treat it seriously. This guy can't take a joke.

People refer to cops as stalkers all the time. I've seen it on TV a lot when they say stuff like "the detective stalks his prey." I still consider a cop that is following me without my permission a stalker and if he uses digital means that makes him a cyber stalker in my book.

He later sent emails complaining to the Sheriff about me. Those have been uploaded to the other website.
