Castle doctrine makes St. Louis more dangerous for criminals, safer for citizens

According to the AP article, St. Louis now intends to cast a more critical eye on claimed self-defense shootings, despite the castle doctrine, with the circuit attorney's office now to conduct a "formal review" of such shootings. This is perhaps in response to the rise in the number of shootings in which the castle doctrine was invoked--seven in 2011, as compared to two in 2010.

It's hard to criticize efforts to determine whether or not claims of self-defense actually were self-defense, but one cannot help but wonder if the more intense scrutiny will also be applied to
officer-involved shootings in St. Louis. [More]
