Restraining orders are like “gun-free zones” in that the criminals don’t really care about either of them. Case in point, Katherine German, who lived (past tense) in the gun-free paradise that is the Bronx, New York. According to the notoriously anti-gun New York Daily News, the 20 year-old German obtained a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Doines Espinal, in May of this year after he was arrested for assault. But that apparently didn’t stop Espinal from running her car off the road and stabbing her to death in the wee hours of Wednesday morning . . .
German’s current boyfriend, who was driving the car when it crashed, was forced to watch as Espinal brutally stabbed German to death in front of him. From the article:
The homicidal hack rammed his ride into the driver’s side of the SUV as they reached the northbound entrance of the New England Thruway, cops said. The impact sent the SUV hurtling over a concrete barrier and crashing on its side near a bike path adjoining the highway, police said. Espinal stopped his car, walked to the toppled vehicle and began stabbing his trapped victim. Jiminez, who was driving the SUV, suffered minor injuries.
After killing German, Espinal apparently waited at the scene for police to arrive and arrest him. Which just goes to demonstrate, yet again, that when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
