The U.S. airman Manuel Falquez who shot an armed burglar in his mothers house has had his arraignment moved to May 2nd. Like Ronald Dixon he is being charged not for the shooting itself which was ruled legitimate self defense, but for possessing an unregistered firearm. Also the respective DA's in Mr. Dixon's & Mr. Falquez' case have lessened the charges against them, not out of sympathy, but to deny them a trial by jury.
