“Suburban Journals” of St. Louis takes a good, balanced and detailed look at the legalities of self defense under Missouri law.
“It’s not a cut-and-dry issue,” said Sgt. John Fulton, of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department. He said home protection is a thorny issue, with countless variables and even more unclear answers. “You have to remember there is a whole lot of responsibility.”
What is clear – and what prosecutors and cops agree on – is that people generally have the right to defend themselves and their loved ones with deadly force under two broad categories: self-defense and to protect one’s dwelling.
Excellent article in my humble opinion. Presents the issue fairly and non-judgmentally. Not exactly a “main stream media” outlet, but still heartening to see journalistic entities looking at these issues in an unbiased way for a change.
