I am scheduled for a Protection Order hearing tomorrow as the Restrained Person and was wondering if I am prose because I do not have counsel. Just can’t afford and attorney
In this case there are a few people in three distinct groups in each group one or more people have indicated that I (said) I was going to Hunt and kill the protected or commit suicide. Group one is a large institution that settled with me just today by use of an NDA and 20K. This organization will have no employees testify or even attend the Protection Hearing. Group two is essentially the CEO of a company in IL who had motive based on a phone call from the protected prior to giving his statement by phone to our local police. This man indicated I relayed to him by phone that the protected should be killed, not that I would be the one to do it. This gentleman will not be attending the hearing either. The other and last is a single person (independent Contractor) who made a statement on behalf of the protected; simply stating "I was going to hunt the protected". It's not known to me if this man will be at the hearing or not. This is really about money and the gun
and killing people is nothing but a red herring. I do have recordings (voice mails), emails and text messages from the protected insulting and harassing me due to my mental problems brought home after 61 combat missions in Afghanistan. While I function at a very high level (my shrink’s words) and seek treatment once a week for PTSD/Depression/Bipolar Disorder. BotXXXXX XXXXXne the protected terminated my service without paying me for the contract I was hired to perform. The protected had his staff breathing down my neck everyday via telephone, VM, E-mail or text messaging. When I complained he terminated my service as an independent contractor. I asked him to pay me for work begun but not complete due to my termination. At this point the protected went into get me mode and started making comments to the effect he was afraid for his life. Some 5 weeks after being terminated the protected sought and received a TRO. The TRO was granted with no evidence whatsoever. What should I expect tomorrow?
If I lose my CC will be revoked and I will not be allowed to carry or own a gun. In my line of work a gun is essential for protection and I currently hold a concealed carry permit.
None of the accusers—those still standing and ready to testify have ever seen me with a gun. The protected has never seen me with a gun. Nobody has ever seen me with a Concealed Carry Pistol nor do I speak of carrying a concealed weapon.
I really don’t understand how this sees the light of day and why a judge would believe I am a risk to the protected and authorized the TRO resulting in a Protection Hearing in 14 days or less. What am I to do.
The protected owes me $25K and is doing all he can to avoid paying. In this case he is using law enforcement to violate my 1st and 4th amendment rights under the constitution. The state will apply its pressure in whatever form tomorrow. What can I do to make the best of this bad situation?
