Robert Manusco was getting into his car in Boston when a
mugger demanded his keys. When Manusco tossed the keys away, the
man kicked him several times before retrieving them. When the
criminal returned, Manusco pulled a pistol and ordered him to stop.
The mugger responded by kicking him again, and Manusco fired once,
killing his assailant. Police filed murder charges, but dropped
them the next day, saying the procedure was only a formality. "As
far as we were concerned, there was no problem at all with the
incident," a police spokesman said.
