Self-defense is Legal in Louisiana

JusticeI suspected it was. ‘Totally justifiable shooting,’ Baton Rouge district attorney says of fatal shooting by LSU player.

Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore made this determination at light-speed, compared to large portions of the Criminal Justice System. (Mostly in locales that are opposed to self-defense.)

“From what I know and what I have seen and heard, this is a totally justified shooting,” Moore said in a phone interview with the USA Today Network Friday afternoon. “From what I’ve been able to gather, and I was at the scene and in the interviews with the two players, it was totally justifiable under the circumstances.”

The shooting in question took place just before Christmas.
