Unfair and Disrespectful

anybody who may understand what Im about to say, could you please give me some input or info as to what they know. I have a probation officer who is very disrespectful and somewhat mean. threatens me with jail all the time and tells me to do things that are good, but than turns it around and makes a big deal out of something small and always threatens me with jail. I dont' know she wants me to things and than changes her mind or forgets idk Im confused with Justice nowadays and it makes me feel depressed and stressed out

is she

Disrespectful and unfair like the crime you committed? Just wondering seems like an oxymoron.. Lol...  
 
If you are serious and trying to obey the paw and turn your life around, could you ask for a different one?

Hmm..

No offence, but how old are you?  
 
Not trying to sound like a b*tch, but if you already have a probation officer.. maybe it's about time you start educating yourself on this kind of stuff.  
 
As far as I'm aware, it's not entirely up to your probation officer to throw you in jail, as long as you're not breaching any conditions in place. Your "something small" and the "something small" in the eyes of the law may be two entirely different things.  
 
There might be more to the story, but you were pretty vague.. lol.  
 
Be good, stay out of jail. Be NOT good, go to jail. It's not rocket science.

well

Let me tell you my husband had problems with the law, in jail and just hung out with the wrong crowd! Do you know what he did? Quit doing drugs, went back to school and college, quit hanging out with bad friends and got a good paying job, bought a house, bought a vehicle, got married. He is so straight laced now. He won't even take vitamins or raise his voice outside. Just better yourself and your life. It's hard but just do it. Life is way more rewarding when you got your crap together

It seems to me......

......that the role of a parole officer is not simply to ensure you do not break the law but also to steer you away from the behaviour that lead you to the trouble you got yourself into.  
 
Sounds to me like this particular PO is trying to keep you out of jail. You need to answer that question for yourself and then act accordingly. "Do you want to go to jail?"  
 
If you have questions or concerns it seems to me they should be brought to your PO. I don't believe your relationship needs to be one filled with acrimony and stress, but I do know that you are the one who MUST make the effort if you do not want to go to jail.

I hear ya

Sounds like somone that I have dealt with. She really is confused and does not always tell the truth and will never admit she makes a mistake.  
The only advice I can give you different than anybody else is discuss this issue with your lawyer and ask for all direction in writeing.  
 
Good luck and make the change.

I understand

that you are seeing a probation officer for a reason, to help you stay on the straight and narrow. But I don't like when people abuse their power like they are better than you. She is just a person, like the rest of us, and just because she holds that job, doesn't mean she's good at it. I'm not judging her, maybe your attitude (if you're coming across as disrespectful yourself) is driving her to react with aggression.
