re: soooo someone broke into my truck..


quote:

And most importantly, when the cops show up, you say "He was gonna kill me and I had to STOP him" then the next words out your mouth should be, "I won't be talking again without my lawyer present."

Don't say shite about killing. The law is about STOPPING them.
Yep. I keep a card in my wallet that says:

1. Secure the assailant's weapon. Check yourself and bystanders for injuries. Make a complete check of the scene,however do not tamper with any evidence. If the person shot is no longer a threat try to help him. Do not talk to him or use abusive language. Do not touch the assailant if he appears to be dead. Do not let anyone else handle any evidence.

2. Call 911. Tell them shots have been fired and your location. Ask for emergency medical assistance. Do not discuss the details of the incident over the phone. Holster or secure your weapon so it is clearly not a threat to Police when they approach. Innocent people have been shot by Police because they appeared to be a threat when Officers first arrive. Try to spot them first and attract them to your position in a non-threatening manner. Initially Police may treat you as a suspect especially if you have a weapon. Do as you are told. Do not question or argue with them.

3. Call your lawyer. Make NO statements to Police or anyone else until your attorney is present. He should meet you at the scene if possible. Tell him exactly what happened and let him talk for you. Advise your attorney not to make statements to the press on your behalf beyond some basic comments on the need for a full investigation into all the facts. If you must meet Police by yourself, be sure NOT TO MAKE ANY STATEMENTS. Explain to Police politely, but firmly, you will make no statements until your attorney arrives. “Officer, I know you have a job to do, but I do not wish to make any statements in the absence of an attorney.” Remember, anything you say can, and will, be used against you.

4.Medical: When Paramedics arrive get medical treatment for shock for yourself and any other person involved whether physically injured or not.

5. Media: STAY AWAY FROM THE NEWS MEDIA. Never talk or make any statement to them. Let your attorney make any statements for you. Remember, the news media have NO AUTHORITY! You do not have to talk to them!

6. Legal actions. You are justified in using lethal force if you “feared for your life” or that of another person. Do not apologize for defending yourself. Avoid statements such as “I am sorry I had to shoot”, “I regret the incident happened”. Such statements are equated with feelings of guilt. You are remorseful therefore your actions were inappropriate. Such statements can cost you later in a court of law.

7. Stress. Persons involved in shooting incidents face a great amount of stress. Psychological problems sometimes appear, and even physical ones such as sleeplessness, headaches, diarrhea and heart problems. These problems are common and affect even trained law enforcement officers. If you encounter any of these problems seek professional help.

Why would you want to shoot and kill someone for breaking into your truck. That just sounds a bit psychotic.

Because I believe in an archaic form of the Castle Doctrine. I should be able to protect my life and property. If we had these laws we wouldn't have to worry about the theft we have now.

So you feel the need to end someone's life because he took your CD player?

Do I need to? No. Would I want to? Probably not and that depends on the circumstance. However, it should be within my rights to. I wouldn't shoot someone for stealing my cd player. For stealing my livestock, child, or safe deposit box? Possibly.

No, but I feel the need to stop him. It's mine, not his.

One of the units I work next to is the last one in north America that hasn't been demod or blown up. I work here at hazard to pay for things. They Can be at hazard for taking my things. Don't break into my shite and you'll be fine. What stops them from coming into my house next??
