Will I Be Arrested After a Self-Defense Incident?
Will you be arrested after a self-defense incident? Why are some people arrested immediately, some people arrested weeks or months later, and some people never arrested? The Armed Attorneys break down what you need to know about arrest after self-defense.
Shoot, shovel, shut up.
Do you live in a blue or red area? That’s all that matters.
Besides saying, “I was in genuine fear for my life,” the VERY NEXT thing you should say is that, “I won’t say anything more until I speak to my lawyer.”
LE is not on your side.
Will I Be Arrested After a Self-Defense Incident? Yes.
Will I Be Arrested After Committing a Crime? No.
A lot of it will depend on the DA and the Sheriff/Police Department.
Defend yourself outside a metropolitan area and you’ll probably be congratulated.
Defend yourself in a city and you better be as risky as rain.
Almost by default now, local DAs, most of whom are greasy pole-climbing political hacks, will have you arrested. Its politically expedient, particularly if it involves a gun, so its their default position.
they can always release you later if they feel you are not a good target.
Buy some CCL insurance from a reputable carrier. Keep the card on your person at all times you’re carrying. If you’re involved in a self defense shooting follow their instructions to the letter.
You only need to worry if they can prove you voted for the orange man
The criminal goes free with apologies from the police for bothering them and you spend a fortune in lawyers and an eternity in jail.
Depends on which state you’re defending yourself in ...
Hopefully you were masked and you look like 110,000,000 other people.
better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
Number 2, articulate what happened.
Officer! Thank god you are here. (Made up situation) I was in the parking lot putting my groceries into my car when I was assaulted by that man. It was a total surprise to me! I was in fear for my life! I feel lightheaded and kind of dizzy right now. I think I need an ambulance ride to the hospital to get checked out. This has never happened before.
Then say NOTHING to the police. You have set the narrative. Get checked out so it is on record. Call your attorney.
Then clam up until you talk to your lawyer, That means CLAM UP, no gestures, physical responses to comments or questions, nothing. Have the lawyer speak for you. That's his job to be the buffer and recognize legit questions from those that do not help you. Post nothing on social media. Your name will appear in the news soon enough, disconnect your phone.
Have the weapon used, unloaded and available. It will be confiscated.
Agree. There is a very fine line between saying to little and saying too much. But err to the side of saying too little.
California, New York, New Jersey...arrested.
Utah, Idaho, Wyoming... awarded a medal.
I feel like I’m trying to read a post intended for someone else; i.e., someone who clearly understands the term “LAGO”.
I am really sorry for reading your private correspondence, but could you clue the rest of us in on the meaning of “LAGO”?
