Conventional wisdom has long held that after a self-defense shooting, the shooter should say nothing to police except, “I want a lawyer.” The problem with that is, it’s exactly what genuine bad guys say to the police and is highly likely to lead to an arrest, which sets the tone for how the criminal justice system is going to handle things thereafter.
Veteran street cop Greg Ellifritz is, in my opinion, one of the sharpest of today’s trainers, and he takes a more practical approach, as I do. See it here in his excellent blog, which I think should be regular reading for anyone serious about self-defense.
The commentary from his readers is interesting. Some is on point and some, I think, not.
Here, I’m interested in YOUR thoughts on the topic.
