    Icon6 What do we teall LEO when they show up after a home invasion shooting

    There are many ideas on what to tell the officers that show up after a home invasion shooting. What will you tell them and why?

    Icon14 Excellent Question!

    This is an excellent question. I have often run scenarios on what to say/do after a self defense shooting away from home, but for some reason have not given much thought about an in home self defense situation. Right now I believe the same basics still apply, "I was in fear of my life or my loved ones" (otherwise I don't pull the trigger). Then, "I am much too upset to talk about it right now, later please?" (shut up and call a lawyer).

    Thanks for bring this up...will be looking forward to other replies.

    1)TELL THE TRUTH!
    2)Say exactly what happened, as it happened, in the order in which the details of the event took place, to the best of your memory.
    3)DO NOT CHANGE YOUR STORY! DO NOT CHANGE YOUR STORY! DO NOT CHANGE YOUR STORY!
    4)If the police read you your rights, SHUT UP & TELL THEM YOU WANT TO CONSULT WITH YOUR ATTORNEY! PROTECT YOURSELF from them!
    And remember this........even though you may like and even respect the police, they have a job to do, and they are not your friends. And some of
    them may have an agenda, against your best interests. So........PROTECT YOURSELF! And DO NOT be shy about asking for your Constitutional
    protections. Those protections are in place for a reason. Tell the police that you will talk to them AFTER you've spoken with your attorney, and that
    you will cooperate fully. DO NOT let the police pressure you into giving a statement. If they're trying to coerce or force you into giving them a
    statement, then they may be trying to hurt you. PROTECT YOURSELF!
    5)And remember this: if you've been involved in a shooting, you are under an incredible amount of stress, and if you talk too much, you just might talk
    yourself right into jail. Tell the truth, but keep it short, concise, and on point. And if the police read you your Miranda Warning, STOP TALKING and tell them you want to talk with your attorney. At that point the police must STOP asking you questions until you have legal representation.
    6)I realize that some of you may be confused or amazed that I'm telling you to do these things, but I know all too well how this game is played.
    PROTECT YOURSELF!

    ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! (Already been there, done that, and have the T-shirt!)

    The police are NOT your friends - Not even the ones who seem sympathetic to what you've just gone through.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Like the man said: Do not allow your desire to avoid staying in jail for the night (or whatever) to end up putting you in jail for many years to come! Be smart, be tough; and, every time a request for additional information is made, simply repeat the statement,

    Officer, I’d like to cooperate with you; but this is a potentially serious matter; and I have nothing more to say until AFTER I speak with an attorney - Thank you!
