When orders of protection fail
Tacoma special education teacher Jennifer Paulson was murdered outside the elementary school by a former college classmate who had just been released from jail for violating a restraining order. Here is the link to the AP article.
Once again, no protection is given to those who legally seek it, but plenty of protection is given to crazies-- and of course, they always can get their hands on guns. In fact, Ms. Paulson's murderer, Jed R. Waits, was dishonorably discharged from the National Guard in 2009.
Until we truly make it impossible for restraining orders to be meaningless, and as long as violent predators can legally obtain guns, people like Ms. Paulson will be victimized. God bless her and her family, and may we all pray for her.
