Posted on 09/29/2010 3:48:46 PM PDT by JohnKinAK
Sarah Palin obtained a protective order Monday against an 18-year-old Pennsylvania man who sent her receipts from a gun purchase, along with a letter saying he tried to follow the Bible but had evil and wickedness in him.
Palin, 46, filed the request in Anchorage District Court against Shawn R. Christy, a man she says began stalking her by e-mail and phone since the summer of 2009. Palins friend, Kristan Cole, 48, filed for and received a similar protective order against Christy.
The 20-day protective orders Anchorage Magistrate Colleen Ray signed Monday prohibit Christy from following, approaching, confronting, watching or otherwise staking or threatening to stalk or assault Palin or Cole.
The protective orders say Christy has been stalking the families since 2009.
Cole said she became concerned about Christys letters and e-mails for months, but it ended up in court yesterday after the man called her to say his plane had landed in Alaska.
When someone sends you proof that theyve purchased weapons. Proof that they know where you live. And said that they are looking into purchasing a one-way plane ticket to Alaska and then calls from a cell phone with a 907 number, its over the line and we need protecting.
Cole said the Wasilla Police called him back at that phone number and spoke

Psychos don’t care about protective orders.
She needs good security.
I don’t see where a court order will protect someone from a maniac determined to do them harm. I hope that Sarah Palin is packing heat...for that will be the only way she can protect herself. Delusional maniacs don’t give one iota about court orders....Lord willing, Sarah is well protected.
Bumping your post no. 2.
Especially ones's that are only good for 20 days.
Not only does she have it in spades, I’m sure she will be carrying now as well. The good thing is that she really knows how to use it as well.
If one doesn’t think this country is in trouble, read some of the comments at the end of the article. She does the legal, right thing and still gets slammed but she’s tough—and follows the law.
One poster did have a good point, POST A PICTURE of the creep.
Maybe she should only stay in gun free zones, like schools? /s
If, God forbid, a stalker hurt Sarah, the MSM would have it on SNL. Barely able to restrain their glee, they’d blame Sarah. Hideous.
Can’t they find and arrest this guy? All concerned should have a pix of this guy.
No she needs a posse. No innocent person should have to live their lives worrying about their family or themselves. This guy needs to take a dirt nap.
I heard a long time ago that she packs, so if anyone tries to harm her or any member of her family she will take em out.
If Obama received a receipt from a gun purchase from someone; the Secret Service, FBI, State Police, local police etc would have raided the guy's house and work place, etc. and would have arrested him by now. But Sarah Palin only gets a "protective order." This is a death threat from the 18-year-old kook that we're talking about here.
Some of the comments are really disturbing. Makes me ashamed of what our country is churning out.
Evil men walk amongst us.
If you believe that Jesus is real, you must also believe that satan is real.
It is difficult to protect yourself from someone who is possessed by satan.

I hope Sarah can get this thing up and running. I dont know where I will be living in the next few months, work is low in PA. But I would be glad too help in any way possible. It is nice to finally see politicans who go out of their way to do what needs to be done. Not the D.C. style of duck and run. God Bless the GOP!”
Not much about him from facebook. Nothing posted since Aug 21. He’s unemployed, apparently lost his job at Hazelton Oil. He was applying for a motorcycle license. He tried to “poke” Cole’s real estate facebook site. He’s a lousy speller. Not much there. Can’t see who his friends are. That is all for now.....
“She needs good security.”
She needs a good hit man.
The protective order won’t keep the creep from her door. It WILL put the fact that he is stalking her on the record.
If she has to resort to self protection, it will not be a surprise.
The age must be wrong, you can't serve in Congress at 18. ; )

SNIPPET: “A message left for Christy at his home in McAdoo, Pa., wasn’t immediately returned.”

Stunning aren't they?

“Palin Granted Restraining Order Against 18-year-old Stalker”
By Chet Dembeck
Published Sep 28, 2010
SNIPPET: “Cole also testified that in a letter Christy had sent her in August , he told her “he tried to follow the Bible, but had evil and wickedness in him.” Cole testified that Christy then told her that he was convinced she is evil and must be punished.
Christy also made an unfounded claim that he had had sexual relations with Palin, according to court documents. Petitioner testified that respondent has told her that he has had an affair with Gov. Palin and that petitioner needs to tell the FBI the truth about the affair. An attorney representing Palin and Cole introduced evidence from the Secret Service that Christy had allegedly threatened or said he wanted to sexually assault Palin.”
It’s probably 20 days for a hearing to be set at which time the order is either denied or made longer. Usually a year.
Though they are little protection they do give the police more leeway in making arrests if he is caught nearby her and if worse came to worst and he was killed trying to get to her it would give them something to pont to and say “look we tried”
THANKS to Kristinn for the ping to this thread.
Palin Stalker Terror: “He wants me dead” (Atty: One of scores threatening former Gov.)

The news media has been slow to report the emergency restraining order obtained Monday by former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin against 18 year old Pennsylvania man Shawn R. Christy. It took forty-eight hours for the national media to report on the court order, even though it was reported online by the local paper the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman on Tuesday.
Palin friend Kristan Cole also obtained a restraining order against Christy, who reportedly told Cole he had bought a gun and flown to Alaska in recent days.
This evening, the Associated Press quoted testimony Palin gave by telephone in the hearing Monday:
“Bottom line is, he is crazy and could kill me,” Palin said, according to the court transcript. “He wants me dead.”
Palin also testified that he also believes he has some kind of relationship with her daughter, Willow, and has brought up the girl’s name.
The AP also quoted Palin’s attorney Thomas Van Flein on the constant threats the Palin family has lived with since she came to national prominence two years ago:
Christy had “risen to the top of the dozens and dozens of people” who have threatened Palin since 2008, when she emerged on the national stage. “He stands out as the most persistent,” trying to reach her through friends, associates and family members, he said.
Reuters also published their first article on the Palin stalker tonight, noting “Cole, like the former Republican vice presidential candidate, is from Wasilla and a former beauty pageant contestant.”
The Frontiersman reported more details today:
Cole testified that Christy sent a letter in August 2010 saying that he tried to follow the bible but had evil and wickedness in him. She said Christy told her that he is convinced she is evil and must be punished.
Petitioner is concerned because the respondent appears to be unstable and has stated that he believes petitioner is evil and that she needs to be punished and that he is coming to confront her to get her to tell the truth.
Christy also claims to have had a sexual relationship with Gov. Palin, the documents say. Petitioner testified that respondent has told her that he has had an affair with Gov. Palin and that petitioner needs to tell the FBI the truth about the affair.
Palin testified that she has not had a sexual relationship with Christy, the filing stated.
AOL News reports on Christy’s purported Facebook page that Christy was homeschooled and claimed to work for a Hazelton recycling company.
The constant stalking the Palin family lives under explains their visceral reaction to literary stalker Joe McGinnis moving into the home next door to the Palins last summer to work on a book about Sarah Palin.
The media’s slow coverage of the threats to Palin are in keeping with their downplaying of the arson fire at her church in Wasilla after the 2008 presidential election.
