I came across your blog while doing research.
I was looking on the Internet for someone that can assist my brother, who has been named (by his wife) as the respondent on an order, issued without his knowledge, presence, or defense. During my research, I found a place in Midlothian, Virginia claiming to advocate EQUAL JUSTICE. Their website is http://www.equaljusticeamerica.org/. Rapidly, I found that they do not advocate actual EQUAL JUSTICE. Please read below to see how and why I came to this conclusion. If you feel it is appropriate, I would like you to include this on your site because it not only serves as a testament to the inequality involved in protective orders and domestic violence, but also shows that there is at least one woman that understands this struggle.
(Name Hidden By Request)
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been researching equal justice in Virginia, as my brother has been named as a respondent on a Preliminary Protective Order (which was awarded to his wife on an ex parte basis after an Emergency Protective Order was initially given by a magistrate. The police did not get the order, nor did they assist, as there was no sign of physical abuse.) As you know, an order issued on an ex parte basis severely violates a person's right to defend themselves against false charges which, in this case is what her allegations are. She is controlling, manipulative, and threatening, yet she's the victim? Of course, because she's the woman. There is much research and evidence to be found on the Internet that illustrates how protective order abuse is increasing in the USA. More often than not, they are issued to women; women that like to play the victim to suit their needs. Do not misunderstand me. I work in law enforcement and know that there are both women and MEN that sincerely need protection from abusers. My sister-in-law is not one of them, however she could benefit from a good psychiatrist.
My brother was immediately removed from his home, a home he pays for, and has not seen his two sons in days, although they are not listed on the order. Under law, he can take his children whenever he pleases but, given the order in place, he cannot for fear of violation. In the meantime, his wife, the petitioner, continues to call and leave notes for my brother, in an attempt to get him to violate the order. He has contacted law enforcement, the courts, and magistrates and they all state that she is allowed to do this.
Your site claims, EQUAL JUSTICE AMERICA but, on your home page, this is stated:
"As a result, women and children victimized by domestic violence do not get the legal help they desperately need."
What of the men that are falsely accused, that are removed from their homes, children and even jobs, due to the rantings of an abusive female? In this case, a female that was charged for assault on my brother by law enforcement, some time ago, because there were visible signs of abuse?
Your site is hardly advocating EQUAL JUSTICE but, perhaps, you can direct me to someone that actually practices what your site claims to? I am looking for someone to assist my brother in fighting these false claims in Frederick Co, VA.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you consider changing your site's wording and assumptions.

On a very cold Orlando morning that drew almost 500 participants in today’s Tea Party rally, Pam Bondi warmed hearts with an inspiring and conservative call to action speech and earned overwhelming support in the subsequent straw poll. This is the second time in a month that Bondi has beaten her primary opponents resoundingly in a straw poll in the voter-rich I-4 corridor.
The total vote tabulation was as follows:
Pam Bondi - 230 Votes (72%)
Jim Lewis - 46 Votes (14%)
Jeff Kottkamp - 30 Votes (9%)
Holy Benson - 15 Votes (5%)
Results can be viewed later on the WORL AM 660 website.
“Pam Bondi’s huge victory today among likely voters is yet another indicator that she remains the Republicans’ best chance of keeping the Attorney General’s seat in Republican hands,” said Bondi consultant Brett Doster. “She is committed to taking her message to every county and every precinct in the state, and I am confident that she will earn the Republican nomination in August.”
Pam Bondi recently resigned from the State Attorney’s office as a career prosecutor to run for Attorney General. She is a 4th generation Floridian, a resident of Tampa, and is committed to being an advocate for the small businesses and working families of Florida.

Laws that are unfair to Men!
These current Hillsborough County Restraining Order Laws allow a Woman to claim fear, and easily obtain a restraining order. Yet she can contact you as much as she likes with her restraining order in place. But if you contact her, she can have you arrested whenever she chooses. It is the hope of this Blog to make the Taxpayers of Hillsborough County Florida aware of how easy it is for a Woman to trick a Man who Loves and trusts her, into a Criminal Restraining Order Violation.
Some Women in Hillsborough County will go get a restraining order to "win" a simple, non violent, non threatening, verbal disagreement. Then, after a restraining order is granted by the well meaning court system, the woman comes crying back to the Man, saying she made a mistake, begging and pleading for forgiveness. The Man, totally in Love with his wife, or girlfriend, believes the woman when she tells him the restraining order is "just a piece of paper", and "no one will know".
They both carry on their relationship, until the woman decides to have him arrested!
In fact, just 3 or more nice "I Love You" type phone messages a woman might save can qualify you for Felony Aggravated Stalking Charges!
When the Police arrive at your home to arrest you, it matters not that you also have many phone messages from her! You can even show the Police her underwear she left last night at your house, and they don't care!
People, something is very wrong with these current Hillsborough County Restraining Order Laws.
Yes, there are bad people who hurt women, and these people need to be put away.
But to arrest someone for merely carrying on a relationship with a woman with a restraining order against him, who tricked him into trusting her is just plain wrong, and IMHO makes a mockery of justice.
Here, caught on videotape, on the mean streets of Tampa, Florida, is a Hillsborough County Restraining Order Violation ?
This Cat was court ordered to have no contact with his ex, and to not come within 500 feet of her, or face jail time for a Hillsborough County Restraining Order Violation!
An Arrest Warrant was issued by the Hillsborough County States Attorneys Office for the Male Cat.
So far, it has managed to avoid arrest and capture.
Hillsborough County Sheriffs Deputys have been checking Animal Shelters, and have circulated a Flyer offering a 5000.00 reward to all the Tree Guys in Hillsborough County, Florida for information leading to the arrest and capture of this Criminal Cat.
If you see this restraining order violating cat, do not try to capture it yourself!
It must be considered "armed and dangerous"
Call the Tampa Police, or HCSO at once!

TAMPA, FLA – Today, eight current and former Sheriffs from the Tampa Bay area announced their decision to support former Hillsborough County Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi in her campaign to be Florida’s next Attorney General. Former Hillsborough County Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi has worked at some point in her career with almost every one of the Florida Sheriffs, and their support was predicated upon her diligence in assisting them with their fight against crime.
“Hillsborough County Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi is conservative, and Pam is tough,” said former candidate for Attorney General and former Pinellas County Sheriff Everett Rice. “But anyone who has worked with her knows that her toughness is built on the great concern she has for the safety of the people she represents, and we can be confident that she will take that same concern and toughness to Tallahassee.”
After an impressive fundraising start, Former Hillsborough County Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi has begun to campaign in every corner of the state. This announcement is just the first of several that will highlight her broad-based support. The Sheriffs endorsing Bondi include the following:
•Jim Coats, Pinellas County Sheriff
•David Gee, Hillsborough County Sheriff
•Walter Heinrich, former Hillsborough County Sheriff
•Cal Henderson, former Hillsborough County Sheriff
•Grady Judd, Polk County Sheriff
•Tom Knight, Sarasota County Sheriff
•Everett Rice, former Pinellas County Sheriff
•Charlie Wells, former Manatee County Sheriff
“I am honored by the support of these leaders,” said Florida Attorney General candidate Pam Bondi. “Just as they made a commitment to uphold the constitution and to protect Floridians, I will do the same as our Florida Attorney General.”
Pam Bondi recently resigned from the State Attorney’s office as a career prosecutor to run for Florida Attorney General. She is a 4th generation Floridian, a resident of Tampa, and is committed to being an advocate for the small businesses and working families of Florida. For over 18 years, she worked side by side with law enforcement, putting some of the state’s worst criminals behind bars.
“Hillsborough County Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi has been a friend and partner to Florida’s Sheriffs and law enforcement agencies,” said Charlie Wells, former Manatee County Sheriff and long-time political ally of Governor Jeb Bush’s. “I know that she will continue the good work that Bill McCollum has begun and will continue to work with law enforcement to protect and defend the people of Florida.”
The Bondi Campaign kicked off their campaign on December 1 of last year and raised $200,000 in their first 30 days of fundraising, outperforming the first quarter of every other candidate that had filed prior to October 1 of last year.
