Self-defense is legal, but it took the DA a good long time to admit that. DA decides not to file charges against El Cajon homeowner who shot break-in suspect.
This is about a shooting that took place in March of last year.
The District Attorney has decided against filing charges against a man who reportedly shot and killed a suspect trying to break into his work truck in El Cajon.
District Attorneys in a lot of places just HATE self-defense. California being one of those places. Contrast that with a recent decision in Louisiana, where the DA made the determination in about a week.
