he wants a non harrassment order against me and my sons. He has made up a lot stuff and had us arrested a different times the police have never taken any action against us and dont actuallt believ him, my housing dont believe him but are sitting n the fence a bit because he is screaming racism. I am at my wits end I really believe this case is harrassmnt against me too.
