    A good reminder

    As an instructor we teach a lot of things during the course of a class. With all of the different classes we teach, there is one thing that remains the same. That is what to do after a shooting. That is one thing that does not change whether you are LE or a civilian. I came across this article, and found that is covered a lot of bullet points regarding that after math, from dealing with LE, Your lawyer, Emotions. It gives a general outline of what to do. If you are new to SD, please give this a look. even if you are not new to SD its a good reminder of what can happen.....

    I've read many articles & watched several videos on what to do after a defensive shooting. There are a myriad of opinions on how much to say (or not say) to the responding officers. The most profound piece of information I've taken away from all of this is: "Nothing you say can be used to help you in a court of law."

    Justice in our court system often isn't. LE and DAs can screw you over so bad if they want. And rest assured their agenda is far removed from yours and the good guys don't always win. Good advice from Harryball and others.

    Just in case you want it, here's the original source of the article:

    "911?- I Just Shot Someone!? - The Shooting Channel

    Easier to read, not so much advertising in the way.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Good advice for the most part. I have a problem with #14 though. Some people do have emotional issues after the prevail in a life or death situation. But it seems as if everyone expects the shooter to feel horrible for winning the fight. It is important to note that many people don't have that issue. They feel elation for having survived the event in the immediate aftermath and then just feel acceptance and move on with life. If you don't feel terrible afterwards, that's OK. Nothing is wrong with you- you just processed things differently than what you may read about other people feeling.

    Thanks for posting that - and for the second link which is the one I used. We all need to relearn these basic steps every so often, especially the part about keeping your mouth shut after your initial and carefully worded statement.

    Good point Echo. When we teach it we do not teach it as an absolute. We teach it as a maybe. You may experience these types of feelings, not that you will. I think the author was saying the same thing.

    I cringe whenever I hear someone or someone's lawyer, after a shooting, say "I/He was in fear for my/his life." Trite, rehearsed. Do not say that if I am on your jury. Say something akin to "I thought that blanketity-blank was gonna kill me." That I can believe. That I can understand and feel sympathetic toward.
