Restraining Order, Call to 911 Fail to Protect Woman

Estranged boyfriend charged in attack Yet another example of a restraining order and a call to 911 fail to stop a domestic violence attack.
A woman who saw her estranged boyfriend approaching her house in spite of a domestic violence injunction called 911 for help Wednesday, but by the time deputies arrived, she had been stabbed several times, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office reported.
A gun may not have protected Donna Johnston, but relying on "the system" for protection proved disasterous. She is in fair condition after having been flown to a local trauma center.
