Aftermath

I have read elsewhere that shootout survivors should not talk with the police after a shooting. It is best to clam up until you have consulted with an attorney. What say you?

One of the more often repeated refrains here, bro. My advice is a five point checklist:

1: Explain the active dynamic that led to the shooting, i.e., "This man attacked me."

2: Further confirm that you were the intended victim, and the injured party was the perpetrator. I would use a statement such as, "I will sign the complaint."

3: Point out evidence, before it disappears.

4: Point out witnesses, before THEY disappear.

5: Answer any subsequent question with a statement to the effect of, "You'll have my full cooperation after I've spokenw ith legal counsel."

best,
Mas

This thread should be a sticky.

Thank you, brother SC Master Blaster, but that's up to our host, Eric and his moderator team.

Though if they do make it a sticky, I hope they'll edit the part where I wrote "spokenw ith" to the proper "spoken with."

This is what happens when they leave me alone here, without editors and without adult supervision...

best,
Mas
