I am sickened that this woman had to get to this point and go through this...that she had to witness a gun being pointed at her and the trigger pulled while she was pinned underneath two vehicles, one being a law enforcement car. She had the restraining order against him, she followed all protocol...But did that do any good....nooooo!!!!!!!. It always has to come to a life or death situation. There is no protection for women or anybody being stalked by a crazy person. There is something wrong with this picture. The laws have got to change!!!


You are absolutely right marypoppins, something needs to be done. My first husband was abusive and back then if you called the cops it was ... we don't get involved in family matters. Restraining orders do nothing and I think that every woman who has to get a restraining order should also be given a gun to back it up.


Please remember---don't always believe what you read.. AND... there is ALWAYS three sides to every story... ALWAYSS!
