Here is my problem, folks. A "good" shooting" goes down, like in post number one. Then the shooter is as defiant, or comes across as being somewhat defiant AS IF he stands out in his yard with arms folded across his chest and tells responding officers, you guys have the badges and guns, you figure this one out. That is the impression I would get as a responding LEO, like what does this guy have to hide. WHy is he almost posturing in a way, making a big deal out of a simple good shoot??? Why? Just to let us know he challenges us to find him in the wrong? To me, it draws suspicion to exercise rights just because you CAN exercise them.
Another example, on the highway, motorist pulled over, asked for ID, gives it, real reluctantly of course, as quite a few people do not like LEOS but yeah he gives it, then the cop says do you have a license to carry by any chance? I see the edge of a round under that towel there. And now the motorists argues that he does not have to show his license to carry because Nevada law blah blah and this is what I mean, this hiding stuff just because you can.
It is a kind of mild defiance that I find to be unnecessary. As I said, those defiant types, hey, if they want to draw suspicion just by being uncooperative, name rank serial number sir, then that is fine with me, has no effect on me.
But it all seems so unnecessary and being uncooperative just to be doing it that way. For its own sake.
Like, what must I tell LEO, then ok, I will tell them that only and not the temperature today if he asks. I say it is no way to live.
This is similar to the walking on eggshells thing where everybody is your adversary. Going thru life wondering what you will say in a courtroom a year from now? uh uh.
Simple simple scenario in post number one. Going strictly by that, we have a good shooting, shooter in the clear. Now he wants to show LEOS and 911 that is well aware of every single one of his rights?
Sounds good to me...If it's good enough for a Fed LEO, it's good enough for me.

Yep, just name rank serial number. "You guys with the badges figure it out!" :)
