dreads, cops, and court.
Life Issues Facing Dreads
so my ex and his new gf have been harassing me via facebook, texting and phone calls. i haven't been with him since the beginning of LAST year. anywho, all last week i went from sheriff's station to sheriff's station to the court house trying to get him to leave me alone. i finally succeeded in filing a temporary restraining order against him. now i have to go to a hearing and present my case.... i'm pretty nervous. he's extremely clean cut compared to me. i'm already going to take out my piercings for that day but idk what to do about my hair. its a fucking mess and the police and court officials aren't exactly known to be supportive of an individual's locking journey. idk if its ok to wear a tam there, if i should just try to put them up or let them be unruly, or if i should just break down and comb them out AGAIN. i love my dreads, but this mofo scares me. i can't risk not having a permanent restraining order, and discrimination is the ONLY way i won't get it, he made his threats perfectly clear and i kept the evidence. i just don't know how to deal with this as i've not had any good experiences with the cops and court this past week. they've talked down to me, stared at me like i was a freak and even insinuated i was lying about the whole thing. any advice is greatly appreciated.
