St. Louis, MO

From 1/1/16 Riverfront Times:
Illustrating the problem of quantifying these types of statistics, on Wednesday, police announced that a particularly nasty shooting death – a fatal gun battle earlier this month outside a North Pointe funeral – had been re-classified as a “justifiable homicide.” Basically, cops think the killing was in self-defense, which means it doesn’t fit the FBI classification used to tally crime stats nationwide.
