Denver prosecutors go after Funky Buddha

Apparently (I have never been there) the Funky Buddha is a trendy downtown Denver pick up joint. The crime alleged is aggravated assault. The real crime was that some slimeball broke into their bar at 4am trying to rob it. One of the owners was there closing and shot him. The problem is that the bar is in Denver. In many other communities around the country and in Colorado the local sheriff would have pinned a medal on the guy.

The reason this is interesting is that the recently passed "make my day" law in Colorado isn't explicitly extended to businesses, only residences.
