Not much compassion or creative thinking going on in the school system. She should have been lateraled into an administrative position away from the classroom until hubby is shanked. A tradeoff to a distant diocese system might be best. It would have been cheaper than her lawsuit and would have solved more problems.

Or even better, a justice system that keeps those who repeatedly terrorise their victims behind bars until they can convince a parole board they are no longer a threat.

Good fix, but it won’t be in place when school opens. (Neither will he, apparently.) Actually, a strong school property trespass law might slow him down, without getting tangled in the domestic issue. I’m a real believer in the virtue of Greyhound—we once had to take up a collection to get a co-worker out of reach until the law could get its shit together.

One of my biggest beefs about our society is how many tools it gives abusers of all types. People think of fists, firearms and baseball bats when they think of abuse.

But there’s bureaucracy, law, professionalism and propriety as well. These latter enable the former and are far harder to fight against.

The other problem there is that California is under court order to reduce overcrowding in its prisons. Thus, while the asshole ex could in theory be taken out of commission, in practice the state has to let him go this year because the crimes he committed weren’t grave in and of themselves. Taken as part of a pattern of abuse, as they clearly are, they are grave indeed, but the state can’t hold him on that basis without getting sued for playing favorites.

Unfortunately, given the money situation in California, Carie Charlesworth’s nightmare isn’t likely to end unless her ex unambiguously tries to kill her or he is either disabled or killed.

I’m afraid this poor woman will be dead in a year. Her husband isn’t just going to go away.

Without a job she says she’ll probably have to go live in a shelter. We have no systems in place at all to protect people like her and her kids.

If they’d stop jailing non-violent druggies they’d have more than enough room for real criminals.

But that doesn’t matter to them. Combine that with Bowers v. DeVito “…there is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered.” and you have the makings of all the repeated tragedies we have nation wide.
