    No. The police get to decide if they should arrest someone. The prosecutors can then level charges based on evidence. The judge and or jury decide if the citizen committed a crime.

    The ACLDN has several articles written over the past few years that decently address the pros/cons of the aftermath: ACLDN journal and articles.

    Such as:

    Be polite, answer any questions that have nothing to do with your actions aside from the basic "I was in fear for my life" or some variant. After that

    No Poly - never take a polygraph under any circumstances.
    No Waiver - dont waive your Miranda rights and dont consent to any kind of search.
    No Statement - written or verbal until you get a lawyer. Everything you say on scene, while being transported, or in an interview before being mirandized is admissible as a spontaneous statement as long as you are not directly asked about a criminal act.

    You may have an investigator who genuinely cares about the truth, or you may get the guy that wants to close cases, better to assume you are talking to the guy who wants to report good numbers.

    I've heard of it happening far too many times... don't want it to happen to me.
