Thread: Delaware Protective Oder Fail
Why would you need a gun at home?
Man climbs in 3rd story window and proceeds to beat his ex-wife. The protective order didn't stop him.

Old and treacherous will beat young and skilled every time. Yata hey.
She sounds like a tough cookie.
Good for her.
I'm sure it took a lot of documented abuse to get that restraining order, and there was plenty more undocumented abuse before that.
Now she knows he will never harm her again.
What gets me is the line about "no charges have been filed, but police are still investigating".
They KNOW he broke the restraining order before, they KNOW he'd been violent to her before, they KNOW he broke into the house that night, they KNOW he beat her... what the h3|| are they talking about charging her with?!?!?
Many long years ago, I worked with a man who regularly beat his wife to the point that she sickened and died. No charges were ever filed because the local DA said that he couldn't prove the beatings caused the death.
Fast forward two years: He met a girl where we worked and wound up marrying her. Soon as they got back from the honeymoon, he started in on, "If you do this, I'm going to beat the crap out of you" etc.,etc.
She stopped him in mid-tirade by asking him to wait just a minute. She went into their bedroom and came back with a .38 revolver which she stuck up his left nostril. She then told him, very sweetly, "You beat one wife to death, you S.O.B, but if you ever raise a hand to me, I'll scatter your brains all over the ceiling!"
Last I heard, some thirty years ago, they still had a happy marriage because he can't find where she hid the gun.
Any male (he ain't a man) who would hit a woman, much less beat her, deserves whatever she is able to dish out. I just wish more women would do this to abusive males.
My father tells a story about a situation he was in as a youth being picked on by 2 girls who didn't know my grandmother was privy to the situation....
Grandmother called my father over and gently told him to "never hit a lady-- if she hits you first, she ain't no lady!"
My father's problems with those girls ended that day.
And I have never seen him raise in hand in anger toward any woman!

I have not raised a fist to a female since about 6 years old. Though I did spank one in class when I was a JR in HS. After warning her about the consequences of her behavior several times. She just would not listen.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

I concur, OCW. If a woman hits me, then she is fair game. Though generally they get a couple warnings first. But no one ever listens.
