Massad Ayoob covers the proper conduct for a shooter involved in a self defense shooting. Memorize the Five Points or keep a laminated copy in your wallet. Play it safe, when in doubt just keep your mouth shut and follow these steps:
1. Say “Officer this person attacked me”
2. Say “I will sign the complaint”
3. Point out evidence
4. Point out witnesses
5. Say “Officer you will have my full cooperation within 24 hrs after speaking with an Attorney”
Bonus Pro Tip: Keep your attitude in check, give the officer your proper identification, and cooperate without incriminating yourself.
