Vital knowledge for anyone who would shoot to defend themselves

Matthew, over at Straight Forward in a Crooked World, is a apparently a man who knows his stuff. He's posted an excellent essay on those life-changing moments between when you've pulled the trigger and when the cops show up.

It's good stuff he's pointing out; stuff that any serious minded person should know and well remember. I won't attempt to paraphrase or elaborate on his well stated points here. Just go read his entire essay, and in so doing you will acquire some wisdom that could possibly save your ass someday!

If there is one point that Matthew possibly didn't hammer sufficiently hard (in my exceedingly humble opinion), it might be in the things to say, or not to say, once "Babylon" arrives. Note the words of a couple of self-professed LEOs to be found among the article's comments:

Rivrdog says:

You ALWAYS tell the responding investigators that you were in the WORST fear for you life. You tell them that FIRST, you tell them that LAST, and you might throw it in a few times in the body of your statement as well.


Carl says:

Law enforcement officers are now being told NOT to Mirandize subjects in custody unless the officers are going to interrogate them. That means that ANYTHING you say can be used against you. As an LEO I can assure you that Big Brother is changing the way he is doing business with subjects of the gov't. Say nothing, get a lawyer.

And finally, listen to what James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and a former defense attorney, says about talking to the Police: DON'T TALK TO THE COPS!

That is the big spooky.

I did not see it, but I am distracted at the moment. Kill is a word to avoid. Stop is the best term to use.

Read the article.

A few comments:

1. If you have the need to pull your weapon, make sure that you expend all of your ammo into the perp, reload, and use more if said perp is still wiggling.

2. Leave.

3. Tell NO ONE!

4. Whatever you do, do NOT talk to the cops. Not one word do you speak to ANY of them, PERIOD!

This may sound a bit drastic, but unless you wish to be entangled with the "justice" system, whose primary goal is the conviction rate, and doesn't give one whit about the truth, say nothin' to no one!
