Sarah Palin is a polarizing figure on the political compass who can bring up strong emotions from those who love, hate, or love to hate her. And that is just the sane among us. For those who are a bit less balanced in their approach to politics or just life, there is the need for a protective order. That is just what Palin has done, seeking and receiving court ordered restraint against her alleged stalker Shawn R. Christy.
Alaska Magistrate Judge Colleen Ray has granted the motion by the former governor to have a protective order issued against the 18 year-old Pennsylvania man, according to the Associated Press. Palin has claimed Christy made implied threats, saying Palin should "watch her back," and insinuating violence through sending her a receipt for the purchase of a gun.
