Don't make that call from your landline or cell phone. Don't use your computer to contact help. Use a computer at the library & somebody else's phone.

Please tell me this death could have been prevented. More man power? Did she call and her report wasn't a top priority? Put on hold by the 911 operator? What were her final calls from her cell phone to the police? There has to be recordings? Videos? Up close and personal? You know he said something?! Made her suffer. Power one last time. Didn't want to do more serious time in prison, so pop. This isn't over

Who cleans up that bloody mess in the home, the business, the street? You clean up the aftermath your own fucking self...your own dime. Pray for rain. Watch your step.

The subject is being a battered spouse/ relationship. Any race will do. Any gender for that matter. She had a boyfriend. Got out of the relationship. Got an order of protection. Now she is dead. What happened? No monikers. Just as bad as Sandy Genovese(been there on that one). Ease up Arctic Wonder. Meet me half way on this one.

In the fantasy world of the racists only blacks commit crimes.

"a stark reminder that stalkers still pose a threat to potential victims who haven't armed themselves."

That's a different fantasy.

You can not say protective orders don't work. First off you can get one for damn near any reason, even if you live. Second, the minute the order is issue it becomes a Federal Offense for the person the order is against to possess a fire arm. If the person is also convicted of domestic violent the ban becomes lifetime.

The problem is the common porch monkey who has zero respect for the law and it would not matter what restrictions were in place the bastard would do whatever he wants just like they do in civil society.

You sure can not go around locking people up given the incredible abuse that happens to the accused with many women who abuse those protective orders.

In this case it was simple. The order directed the scumbag to stay away from the woman and other things including not possessing guns. The thug decided he did not have to follow the order. You only get compliance with people who have some basic respect for the law. If they had a custom order taking the nature of blacks into consideration you might be on to something, but that would be RAYSHITZ.
