You have to be responsible for your own safety.

Because the police can't do it, even when they're right there watching.

West Linn Police say there wasn't time to save a woman shot to death in the parking lot of their police station by her estranged husband.

Bill McMurtrey chased Lisa McMurtrey with his truck as she fled to the police station, then he shot and killed her with a rifle in the parking lot of the West Linn Police Department before fatally shooting himself, police said Tuesday.

She might not have been able to stop him from killing her even if she'd been armed and trained, but she's probably the only one who could have.
