Wow! At first I thought, he needs anger management, not life in prison, but reading more of the story, this guy has been given chances already by the courts and continues to make this woman's life miserable. He definitely needs to know how it feels to be bullied by going to jail with some real criminals such as himself!

A lot of women are in jail for defending themselves from controlling men and that is not okay!

And why did he choose to turn himself in through East Palo Alto, there are plenty of "negative comments" already directed there as it is!

Another "dial 911 and die" story. A protective order doesn't. The best protection is a gun and training in gun handling. Post the target you shoot for qualification on your door.
If every first degree murder conviction resulted in an execution within a year then perhaps a protective order might have some value, but this punk has it made for the next 3 or 4 years.
