A woman living in Charles County, Md., initially turned to the
judicial system to seek protection from an abusive ex-boyfriend. "I
have been afraid to come forth and speak out for fear of him doing
bodily harm to me and threatening to burn down my home," she said
in her petition requesting a protective order. "The last four years
have been a living hell. I am contemplating purchasing a handgun
for my protection." After twice violating the court order, the man,
described as a violent drug addict, broke into the home and began
beating her current boyfriend with a metal pipe. This time she was
indeed armed with a handgun, which she used to shoot and kill her
attacker. Police said she had not been charged with a crime and
that they considered her a victim.
