Just as we don't blame the victims of someone else's reckless driving, neither do we blame the victims of another's reckless behavior.You don't usually see this kind of thing in print in the MSM. The usual suspects (NYT, LAT, etc.) are more likely to say we need even more govenment control of life. What we need is for more people to take personal responsibility for their own safety, and not to assume the police will take care of everything.
But defensive driving can help us stay alive. And keeping in mind that a restraining order is not a 24-hour bodyguard might save lives, too.

Although I covered this case earlier, it is worth revisiting since the Charlotte Observer has written about it - and from the same point of view.
