A woman and her ex-boyfriend engaged in an argument one evening. He left, but later returned uninvited and broke into her home, gaining entry by smashing a window. He proceeded to yell, hit and throw the victim to the ground multiple times, but eventually the woman was able to draw a firearm and fire one shot at her attacker, killing him. The woman will not face charges for defending her life in her own home. (kfor.com, Yukon, Okla., 2/28/22)

After two domestic violence incidents and two ensuing protective orders, a disgraced former police officer continued to stalk his ex-girlfriend. The man had a history of domestic violence as far back as 2012, with the two most recent incidents occurring in 2020 and 2021. The current protective order required that he stay away from the victim and surrender all weapons. However, the serial domestic abuser showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s home. He was being treated for a narcissistic personality disorder and had prior law enforcement training. The victim was able to protect herself from a man with means, motive and a history of violence. She fatally shot the intruder and, after hours of interviews and cooperation with authorities, is not expected to face charges for defending herself. (wusa9.com, Mt. Airy, Md., 2/27/22)
