The Watch doesn't stop anyone deserting them too. That's their choice and they'll suffer for it I guess.

Aye, seeing your dead buddies corpses trying to reach you, trying to kill you, with sinister blue eyes is something terrible, but did he truly saw them?( I suppose he did, but I don't have evidences).
Gared was one of the most experienced man of the NW.
And Gared seemed to have some knowledge of the Others or the wights. When Ser Waymar Royce forbade him to make fire, he answered that "there are other things a fire keep away" or sthg in these lines.
Of course, this could be the knowledge from the legends of the wall, but, still...
It's just more strange when the Old Bear told Tyrion rather naturally that the fisherfolk were seeing the white walkers, as if it was something completely normal.
I have this impression that the Others are quite masochists, and enjoyed their time torturing Gared in his flee, pretending to be going to kill him. Or maybe they really were going to.
