Restraining Order Fails, Woman Stabbed to Death in Walmart

Man accused in Walmart stabbing denied bond | The Greenville News |

He abused her on Oct 30th. His bond was set at $5242 on Oct 31st. On Dec 10th he killed her. She had secured a restraining order against him. See how effective it was.

The courts cannot protect you. The Supreme Court has ruled numerous times that the police have no duty to protect you. If you think you need an order of protection, then you might also need a plan for your personal safety.

A gun may not have saved this woman, and the fact that she was at work might mean she was disarmed by corporate policy, but it is clear that "the system" failed Lilia Blandin, and her three motherless children.
