New GPS Device To Help Warn Domestic Violence Victims About Abusers

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.

*** and ***

“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.

*** end quote ***

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.
