What Should You Say (or Not) to Police at the Scene If In a Shooting?
A thread I started on an allied subject on another site has focused on this question: Should you say ANYTHING to LEOs at the scene if the horrible event happens of having shot someone in SD .
I know blathering from hyper-adrenaline at such a time can be really bad legally, but I also can't believe a short statement like: "I was in fear for my life and had to stop a lethal attack on me. I will cooperate fully in the investigation and now want to speak to my attorney." is going to hurt you because you pretty much admitted shooting. I mean, you and your attorney will be doing so in any case if it's SD. The claim will not be you didn't shoot. But I know many police and lawyers on these forums council absolute silence.
Any knowledgeable information you can share? It's a confusing area, the question has come up many times but I've never heard a definitive answer; unlikely any one of us will need it, but still, we do Carry guns for SD. Someone, someplace, will need to know and act correctly.
