@Krissy_Caster70 @Watcher9 @ThomasWic There is often PLENTY OF EVIDENCE a guy is talking about killing someone. They leave notes. They rant on answering machines. They've been arrested for assaulting their target in the past.
I can't tell you how many times I read a story about some poor woman being stalked by a guy for years who left notes, ranted on her answering machine that he was going to kill her, he'd just bought a gun, etc. etc.
