Victims Assistance Advocates
Here are the dirty tricks that the system uses against the REAL victims of restraining orders - those falsely accused.

Dirty Trick No. 1
The So-Called "Victim Witness Advocate", usually working out her own tortured past in an orgy of revenge against men, will tell the woman how to falsely claim she has been abused or fears abuse.
Every court now has a strange creature on its staff known as a victim-witness advocate, whose job is to assist women to obtain restraining orders. This odious person is paid for by tax dollars, often from a "Violence Against Women Act" (VAWA) grant. They are usually horribly maladjusted, and seek the job in order to wreak revenge on some figure in their own life, real or imagined, who may have wronged them in the past. The advocate, inevitably a woman, often deeply emotionally scarred, is frequently working out her own twisted past vicariously through the women she "helps", and is intent on taking it out on every man she can ruin, through her "clients". If you wanted revenge on the male of the species, there is no better job.
