The Worth of Restraining Orders

Even though those who pay any attention whatsoever know that RO/OOP's aren't even worth the paper they're printed on, anti-gun advocates continue to state that victims of violence should rely on them and the authorities to protect you. 

Now let's take that a step further.

Howabout punishing a victim of violence while acknowledging that a RO is absolutely worthless?  That's what the diocese in San Diego did when a woman's ex husband came to the school to threaten her.  They kicked her kids out of the school and fired her.
"We know from the most recent incident involving you and Mrs. Wright (the principal) while you were still physically at Holy Trinity School, that the temporary restraining order in effect were not a deterrent to him. Although we understand he is current incarcerated, we have no way of knowing how long or short a time he will actually serve and we understand from court files that he may be released as early as next fall. In the interest of the safety of the students, faculty and parents at Holy Trinity School, we simply cannot allow you to return to work there, or, unfortunately, at any other school in the Diocese."
So not only is she in danger from her ex, she's now out of work because she's in danger from him. Isn't that a great way to improve society?  By throwing its most vulnerable members under the bus?

And yeah, I can kind of see the Diocese' point.  The POS might come back and be a danger to the school.  That's another reason why 'gun free zones' and CA's 'common-sense' gun laws are anything but.  While skippy the wonder turd will get a gun if he wants one no matter the laws involved, the victim will not be allowed to defend herself under all the onerous regulations that the progressive CA legislatures have put in place for her own protection.

So in their view, she should just keep relying on RO's and 911 calls while living on unemployment/welfare until POS finally comes to finish the job. 

What a proud, progressive world we're creating.
