    I think a lot of people prepare to defend themselves, but I don't think there is enough talk about what to do after you are forced to defend yourself.

    I am not an expert at this. I will give a lead in and hopefully an expert will chime in. I am intentionally leaving the situation vague.

    You are at home a sleep. Someone breaks in. There is a scuffle. The person doing the B&E is shot.

    Now what?

    BTW, This came up on a different board because of some questionable shoots and the more questionable actions of the shooter AFTER the fact.

    You get to safety. Call 911 for medical and LE help. Establish yourself as the victim, point out evidence, witnesses or accomplices (I'm being broader than your scenario). Then politely and properly lawyer up.

    you then put the BG's on a tarp, execute them with one in the head, then wait til the next day to call authorities. seems thats acceptable by some of the people on here.

    ...and there it is. Self defense is an affirmitive defense which means it must be proven to justify a homicide, without critical information from the victim that can be impossible to prove on scene.

    Would you advise calling 911 or your lawyer first? I ask, because this is a topic discussed once with a couple of friends. One is a retired cop who feels it wise to call the lawyer first.

    You do what you need to do to protect yourself and family. Not your TV.

    Then call 911 ASAP. When police arrive. Give basic info and a statement yuo need an lawyer. You will spend the night in the local PD. Relax. Don't try to explain everything. Your mind will forget things or confuse the timeframe. This can be used against you in court. Let the lawyer talk.

    Be prepared to shell out alot of cash. I figure at least 50K for a good defense.

    So, remember that if it is just your TV walking out the door.


    Oh, expect a cival suit even if perp is dead. Lost wages.

    You call 911 first and IMMEDIATELY because you are going to do everything you can to get medical aid to the POS that is bleeding in your house, even though he earned it. This will be key later.

    When you hang up, you and your loved ones are in absolutely no danger at all, then you call your lawyer and give him heads up you will most likely be needing his services in very near order.

    I assume you mean "shot" as dead.

    Call 911 and tell them you shot an intruder in your home.


    Then, assuming he woke me up, I'd probably make a pot of Coffee while I waited for the Sheriff.



    ASAP, find out what works good to get blood stains out of the rug.

    You have a lawyer that takes your calls at 0230? (Answering services emphatically don't count.)

    That's the practical hurdle. The need to call 911 and establish yourself as the good concerned citizen who was concerned for life was well-covered by the sheriff above.

    Absolutely not. You will have plenty of time to make that call after you get the ball rolling.

    As a matter of fact, I do. With the amount of money I have payed her the past 2 years, I have no doubt she hopes I call her so I can pay her even more.

    I think I am working on putting unborn grandchildren through college. But believe me, she has been worth every penny.

    That is what I was thinking too. :rofl:



    For me to "call my lawyer" would be me pulling out my phone and doing a Google search for "lawyers in round rock, tx" :supergrin:
