    Anybody can file a pfa against anybody for good reason or for bad. To protect themselves or to damage someone elses reputation.

    The bigger they are, the harder they fall. I feel so sorry for people who believe they lead a charmed, untouchable existence.

    I am really shocked that a Luzerne County official got hit with a restraining order. I always assumed County officials were the highest degree of human beings, honest and so forth. Hmmmm oh wait I hit my head have to go not feeling well. LOL
