So You Think the System Will Protect You

He was arrested twice in 14 days for violating a restraining order. He is now charged with murder. Suspect released twice before fatal shooting | KGET TV 17

She did what the Left says will keep you safe: She got a restraining order.
17 News has learned Sowders-Fuller reported the violation of the restraining order seven times since July 25, ranging from slashing tires to threats.

Of those seven reports, Fuller was arrested twice due to probable cause.

"On Aug. 4, we arrested him for violating that restraining order," [Senior Deputy Michael] Whorf said. "He did post bond the same day."
The same day? He didn't even spend the night in jail. And you think the system can protect you. Why?

If you need a restraining order, you also need a plan for your personal safety. The restraining order wasn't much more than an inconvenience to this guy.
Early Saturday morning, deputies say he broke into his ex-wife's home in the 200 block of South Plymouth Avenue.

Fuller used a shotgun to kill the woman and her mother, said Senior Deputy Michael Whorf.

The victims, Suzan Annette Sowders-Fuller, 45, and her mother, Sharon Sue Cannon, 69, were shot in front the couple's two young children, ages 5 and 8.
That will probably take some therapy to deal with.

Restraining orders are interesting legal documents. They are not bullet-proof vests. Take some measures to ensure your safety.

It may not have made any difference in this case. Having a plan for your personal safety, does not guarantee your personal safety, but you cannot just rely on the system.
