Talking to the media after a shooting?
So I turn on the local news and here's this report of the shooting of a home invader. Supposedly a man breaks out the window, enters the home, grabs two kitchen knives and approaches the resident--who promptly draws a .44 mag and shoots the invader dead.
I have no problem with that. I really don't. What I do have an issue with is the homeowner, on camera, telling in great detail what happened and giving the camera crew a tour of the scene, including the cat litter on the floor to soak up the blood. He goes on and on about how he was protecting his family, etc.
And then they wrap up the story by saying, "The shooting is still under investigation."
Do you think someone--anyone--should have told the guy to keep his mouth shut until the investigation was complete?
Me? I ain't answering the weatherman if he asks me if I'm having a nice day. Somehow that would be twisted around until the next hurricane was my fault.
