The difference between getting a restraining order in this country or a “non-molestation order” in the UK, is that in America, you usually have the option of arming yourself in your own defense. In the UK you disarmed (for your own good). Woman murdered by husband called police about him nine times before her death, report finds
She called the cops 9 times about this bastard. She called police the morning she was killed. That day the call was taken by a trainee and not logged correctly.
In all, the review says that there were 12 things the Kent police did wrong. An apology has been issued. Not sure to whom, as the person most needing the apology is dead.
The cops don’t know what to do about restraining orders in the UK, so nothing was done. She paid the ultimate price.
Her estranged husband will be sentenced to life. In the UK that is rarely more than 15 years behind bars.
Calling 911 is a fine thing. (In the UK – dial 999) It can send police and medical assistance. But if you are betting your life on “the system” being able to save you, you are in trouble. In the UK you can’t even protect yourself, because that kind of thing is best left to the authorities. Too bad they don’t know what they are doing.
And no matter what the ruling class in the UK thinks, self-defense is a human-right.
