Idiot spearguns a black sea bass in the La Jolla Underwater Park. I hope they throw the book at him; I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but to kill a protected fish with a spear gun while in an ecological preserve, claim ignorance both that the fish is protected and that you are in a no-fish area, and to top it all claim you killed the sea bass in self-defense (!!!) is just asinine. The paper has an article on reaction to the killing, as well. "I would imagine that hunting a giant black sea bass would be as challenging as shooting a dairy cow," one diver is quoted as saying.
