On the Subject of Restraining Orders...

Estranged husband arrested in Lawrence woman's murder She got a restraining order on April 3rd of this year. Five weeks later, she is dead. Her children - some minors - will bear the burden of her absence.
A police department chaplain also responded to help console her four children, ages 11, 15, 17 and 18. Yang also had a child away in college and another in the military.
She appears to have been a victim of the "How dare you live without me," attitude.

Restraining orders are interesting legal documents, but they won't stop someone bent on violence. If you think you need a restraining order, you probably also need a plan for your personal (and family's) protection. This kind of thing happens all too often.
