    Because the "SYG" statutes are the ones that prohibit prosecution for defending yourself.

    The idea that anyone, anywhere is immune from prosecution when they exercise deadly force is a stretch.

    Are you referring to Law or to the way things work in the real world? There's no reason why someone should be prosecuted IF deadly force was justifiable.

    You don't think the fact that Montoya and his associate, who worked for the federal gov. had a little bearing on the matter of his aquittal, in addition to the fact that he was most likely innocent?



    FROM STORY;


    Montoya, a 13-year veteran of federal law enforcement, works as an agent with the Food and Drug Administration in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He had come to Charleston in April for training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center

    The guy should have never been charged. Maybe the DA's will start to get the point and quit charging people for defending themselves. DA's don't tend to like losing cases, getting egg on their face, and losing the next election.... they only do it if they think it will earn them brownie points in the eye of the voters.
