[The victim] was shot and stabbed multiple times Friday afternoon, said Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to a call at her home ... shortly after 3 p.m.Her ex-boyfriend broke into her home, hid and ambushed her when she got home.
The courts are fine institutions, and restraining orders have a place in a legal strategy, but they cannot keep you safe. The police do everything they can, but they were not called until after the crime had been committed. That is not a slam on the police... it is just a recognition of the constraints under which they work.
The victim will survive, and the goblin is charged with attempted murder, among other things.
