If she'd just gone back to that abusive POS, it all would have been fine...

...or, This sort of thing is what happens when women are encouraged to "give them what they want" or fight their attackers with things like pens or rat-tail combs...

Joseph Francois Jean had warned his former girlfriend that their relationship would never truly be over “until he was finished with her and she had nothing.”
That prediction was relayed in an investigator's report to the Harris County Sheriff's Office by the ex-girlfriend, Victoria Wiley — long before Jean was charged with capital murder this week for an act investigators said they believe would leave any mother's heart feeling empty and desolate. It transcends all the years of stalking and harassment that the courts had thus far documented since she broke off her 2½-year relationship with Jean in 2006.
What does one have to do with the other, you ask? Well, if you read the story, you will see all the different ways Mr. Jean harassed his ex-girlfriend before he torched her house and killed her daughter and niece; it went all the way up to physically assaulting her with his fists. If there was any justice in the world that son of a bitch would have had a bullet in his head before he managed to throw a solitary punch.

Why didn't it turn out like that? We all know the answer to that. It didn't turn out like that because no one taught Victoria Wiley and those like her that her life and well-being were worth protecting with deadly force. In fact, it seems women are taught in too many places that if they give their attackers what they want and don't fight back everything will be fine. And you see what her attacker wanted here -- a hell of a lot more than her money or her purse or what-have-you. I guess Abby Spangler, Paul Helmke, Josh Sugarmann and all the others in the victim-disarmament crowd would have told Victoria Wiley to just go back into that abusive relationship with her ex. After all, that's what he wanted, isn't it? If groups like NOW were worth a bucket of fermented human waste, they'd be doing things like holding shooting and carry permit classes for women instead of agitating for tighter gun control laws and encouraging women to "give them what they want" when things like this happen. But just like the ADL and the NAACP, the people of NOW don't care so much about truly empowering the groups they purport to represent as they do ingratiating themselves with the liberals in this country.

I must say, that's rather odd, especially in this case. The National Organization for Women is a feminist organization. Wasn't the empowerment of women the entire purpose of the feminist movement? It strikes me that if they were really about empowering women, they'd be encouraging women to protect and defend themselves with the best means possible as opposed to teaching meek submission or half-assed methods of fighting back that only put them in more danger.

You see here, though, that Jean didn't do any of this with a gun. One gets the idea that Paul Helmke, Abby Spangler, et al. would say, "He didn't use a gun, yay! The Brady Law prevented another gun crime!" I guess it's all right if those creatures kill with baseball bats and gasoline.
