Your clothes, give them to me

"She also asked the court if she might have her GPS ankle bracelet removed, promising to tell officials if she travels anywhere near Brevard County, where Colleen Shipman lives."

... she added that she no longer believed that a man from the future had been sent to kill her, and that all the stuff she had said about armageddon, and "Skynet", and a future war with the machines, it was all nonsense. And she didn't mean to stab the doctor in the kneecap.

If it was me

I'd be happy to know that she made excuses, but I'd want to remain sure the cops can find the nutter any time of day or night.

Anyone who can actually plan a thousand-mile trip based on nappy wearing to prevent wasting time in pitstops, in order to go and harass someone they don't know and have never met, well let's just say that said person is indeed supposed to be tracked and checked on for the rest of her natural life.
