Please Help A Stalking Victim in PA

Please help my friend in Pennsylvania. She is a 60-year old, college educated professional in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, who has been victimized by the most insidious crime known to mankind: stalking by a stranger. The continous victimization and terrorization of a helpless, harmless, and blameless woman at the hands of a violent, convicted felon she knows only as a neighbor near the home she owns has been made 1000 times worse by a corrupt, misogynistic police force that refuses to believe this man is a threat to her, and an archaic, sexist "justice" system that does not provide for Protection from Abuse orders unless one seeks them against a family member or someone with whom they have been "intimate". I am a man and I have known her for decades and she would never hurt a fly. Even though she owns her home, which is small and modest after a lifetime of hard work, and service to others, she has fled in fear for her life while a violent Amish man shunned by his family rents next door and has terrorized her since the day he moved in. She cannot work steadily while living on the kindness of friends, she has mounting medical bills from his last physical assault against her, police refuse to charge him with any crimes despite obvious evidence and witnesses, and now they have charged HER with assaulting HIM because she used mace to protect herself after catching him on her property while stopping by to retrieve some clothing. He has caused tens of thousands of dollars in damages to her home, car and other property by firing bullets into her home, even though he is prohibited from owning weapons because of previous felony convictions. When she did live at her home, he followed her around her property with a camera 24/7 while on his property - and in spite of a six foot privacy fence she had installed, called her obscene, vile names in front of his own child, with whom he has now lost custody, and would continuously come up with new ways to terrorize and abuse her. When she complained to his landlord about the sound of his dog howling in agony all day long, her stalker responded by getting another dog that we believe he purposely beats and mistreats because he knows it kills her to know animals are suffering and there is nothing she can do about it. She has spent several thousand dollars on a lawyer to file a "No Contact" order against him, only to have him violate it in front of police while they all laugh - knowing the order is worthless if it is not enforced. She had to arm herself after his last attack landed her in an emergency room and the doctor told her, " He wants you to know he can kill you any time he wants, with laser precision and complete impugnity." Now, she faces more legal bills to defend herself and will have to get a lawyer outside of the county, while police and prosecutors try to protect their reputations at her expense. If I could pay all of her bills, I would. She is a good, kind-hearted person who has never asked anything of anyone. But I am not in that financial position. I am embarrassed to be a man...AND from Lancaster County...and her legal and medical bills continue to mount while she pays a mortgage on a house she can no longer live in, and cannot afford to fix...or, even return to...to put on the market. The goal is 50,000.00 due to her mounting medical bills, debts that have accrued, and the turmoil this has caused her. Now, her legal bills will be astronomical as she tries to stay out of prison for macing a stranger that police should have stopped a long time ago. They refuse to protect a helpless woman from a violent bully, so I hope you all will step up to the plate - unlike police,.prosecutors and judges in corrupt and sexist Lancaster County, PA. Thank you in advance.
