When Romance Goes Terribly Wrong . . .

Here's a hint:

if you are attacked by your SO or ex-SO, call 911 immediately. If the attacker rips the phone jacks out of the fall and steals your cell, then call as soon as possible.

Otherwise, the report goes into the system and you still can't get back into your house.

I just spent hours dealing with a friend involved in a situation. Because the victim was finally able to flee the situation and get to a place of safety before reporting it (we're talking within 1-2 hours), the police are not going to arrest the aggressor in a timely fashion. Nor can the victim get an emergency protective order.

Long story short: we have a house guest.

In our guest's honor: Kristen Vigard, God Give Me Strength.
