    If the recipient of a protective order or restraining order has no disregard for the law, then the person who got the order in the first place had better be prepared for the worst.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    The restraining order used to be a get out of jail free card if the person served with it violated it and got kilt. Now it also serves as a red flag in case, you know, they want to take your guns.

    I've always heard the most dangerous times in abusive relationships were when the abused got out of it, and when the abuser got served with a restraining order.

    The noise and chatter of people with faux fears that are ideologically-based hyperbole can tend to drown out people with real-world threats to their safety.

    Some people follow the law, but at the same time, a person who can't find it in their heart to follow the simple social principle of, 'don't hurt someone you love,' can't really be trusted to comply with an administrative restriction imposed by that society.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    Yup. It documented an ongoing threat that had been found credible enough by a judge to issue the restraining order.

    On the other hand, I've seen spiteful spouses in divorce proceedings take them out for leverage, too.

    "Although several residents nearby later reported hearing shots earlier that morning, no one called 911 and no one witnessed the murder."
    Anyone that thinks society will protect them form death or serious bodily injury, is delusional. And from the looks of the article, she could not pick out good men.

    No one called the cops, and I think that will become more common in America. People are scared or they are tired out, so they just go back to what they were doing.

    After they left the restaurant, he grabbed her by the wrist and neck, frightening her enough that she jumped out of the vehicle and got into a stranger's vehicle.
    She got into a strangers car? You know something, that shows a lack of good judgement to me. Did she have enough sense to know what was good for her?
    Could she sense danger and do the right thing? OK, the stranger did not kill her, but she sounds lost, and incapable of rational thinking.

    {That article is poorly written, I will just call it a mess.}
