The Most Important Thing You Can Do After a Self Defense Shooting...

August 06, 20212 min read

Have you ever thought about what you would do after a self defense shooting?

During your interview with detectives, they are going to ask you questions about the shooting, and they will ask you to tell the story of exactly what happened over and over again.

They are doing this to determine if you are lying or telling the truth.

Now, if you're able to tell the same story in the same way every time, then you're probably telling the truth.

But if you're fabricating things, you're going to be adding things, and taking away, changing statements and thats all going to be used against you during the court proceedings.

You Must Focus...

So it's important to focus, to try as hard as you can to remember what was really happening, and to not use or say things that you simply should not be saying.

I shouldn't have to say this next part, but I'm going to say it anyway: Do not lie; just tell the truth. The bottom line is that if you lie, the detectives are going to figure it out, and then all of your credibility will be thrown out the window. 

Each time you tell your side of the story, the detective will be looking for inconsistencies. Once they identify an inconsistency, they will press deep to identify why your story is changing. This is the point at which most people begin to break. They get frustrated and begin saying things they shouldn’t. 

Comfortable, Relaxed And Talking
The goal of the detective is to make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and justified in your actions. In fact, if you watch the footage of the Michael Drejka interview, it almost appears like the detective is agreeing with everything Drejka is saying. Personally, I believe this detective was agreeing with Drejka as a strategy to keep him talking, and this strategy paid off because Drejka said one stupid thing after another during his interview with Pinellas County detectives. 

Drejka chose to waive his right to have an attorney present, because frankly, he’s an idiot who felt he was 100% justified in his actions. However, even if you have an attorney present, they cannot prevent you from saying silly things. 

That's all I have for today. So until next time keep training and stay safe...
