Look at this face.
When Carol Bowne felt the threat of domestic violence, the petite hairdresser took steps to protect herself.Kingfish note: This is reason why restraining orders are a joke when it comes to protection. The only thing animals understand is the use of force. This guy didn't use a gun to kill this woman. He had an advantage in strength and size. He simply used a knife. She was at a disadvantage and unable to protect herself. She was a good little compliant citizen. She followed all the rules. She did what the government told her to do to protect herself and she was still murdered. No doubt a necessary sacrifice to the gun control cause.
The Berlin Township woman got a restraining order against a former boyfriend, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun, friends said.
But it wasn't enough.
Bowne, 39, was stabbed to death in the driveway of her Patton Avenue home on Wednesday night.
Her former boyfriend, 45-year-old Michael Eitel, was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, was a fugitive Thursday, being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service task force.....
Salon employees said Bowne was meticulous about her appearance, but had struggled recently with problems in her personal life.
"She got a restraining order about a month ago, and right after that her car windows were broken," said O'Hara.
Court records show Eitel pleaded guilty to a weapons offense in 2008 after being indicted in 2006 on a charge of aggravated assault with bodily injury. He received a five-year sentence for that offense, which neighbors said was related to an assault on a former girlfriend...
Berlin Township Police Chief Leonard Check said Bowne applied for a gun license on April 21, and that she had inquired Monday about her request.
The application process typically takes two months or more as police collect information on the applicant, including fingerprints and reference checks. "We did not get the fingerprint information yet," said Check.
Police went to the home around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, when they found Bowne lying in the driveway with multiple stab wounds. Bowne was taken to Virtua Hospital in Berlin, where she was pronounced dead at 11:22 p.m.... Rest of article.
One further note. New Jersey law requires the police to process the permit within thirty days. The question now is whether the police violated the law and indirectly caused this woman's death.".
