It Is Just a Piece of Paper

WLBT 3 - Jackson, MS: Stabbing Victim Rebounding One Year After Attack He stabbed here 30 times, and tried to light her on fire with gasoline.
She filed a restraining order against him and thought that was enough, but it wasn't. She believes victims of domestic violence should work even closer with law enforcement to keep themselves safe.
But not one word about self-defense. When seconds count, police are minutes away. The best response by police would not have prevented this attack. (He attacked her as she stepped out of a store.) A gun might have enabled her to defend herself, of course there are no guarantees in this life. But more reliance on police is a waste of time. They cannot save you.
