Good for them. That poor girl and her family! It's hard because many people are arrested, and charged when it's self defense.
In the South, attitudes are more permissive towards self defense. I am not sure if Louisiana has a stand your ground law, as we do here, but it appears that the district attorney there is a man of common sense.

Just like us. It's good to be Southern.
