A Sterling man has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated malicious wounding, and violation of a protective order following a domestic violence assault Sunday afternoon at the Stone Springs Apartments.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the apartment complex in the 42200 block of Glascock Field Terrace around 3:30 p.m. Sept. 19 where the suspect, Peter J.

    Domestic violence is a very real problem in America. Loudoun County is no exception. Over the weekend, I read a story about a Loudoun judge who jailed an alleged domestic-abuse survivor because she smoked pot prior to her court testimony. Clearly, sensitivity is lacking in our judicial system. If that judge has an ounce of compassion for the human race (particularly women) he’ll resign immediately.

    This story demonstrates why every person needs to be prepared to defend themselves and their loved ones. And you need to be prepared before that violent, estranged spouse appears at your door. Hammers and blunt objects are used to kill people more often than rifles!

    This story also demonstrates the utter uselessness of “protective orders.” If someone is unbalanced enough to attack you with a hammer, a piece of paper isn’t going to dissuade them. You need other tools to discourage a threat.

    I’m not saying that you must get a firearm as there are other options. But you have to be prepared to defend yourself. In all too many instances, the police arrive in time to secure the crime scene as the forensic team cleans up after the crime.
