NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. The victim of domestic violence gets a restraining order against her abuser, only to be beaten or killed when that order is ignored.

“The people who are going to be required to wear this are people who are convicted of violating an order of protection already. They’ve already done something where a court has demanded them to stay away from their victim,” Donovan said.
“I think it could be very helpful,” Santiago said.

Are you kidding me?
I know something that would be helpful. (Raising hand, saying “call on me”, me, me)
Politicians pass a law that gives the victim a presumption of self-defense if the violator is shot.
That and some quick training on a loaner.
It’s absurd that a court order is supposed to protect victims.
