    They need that time for their union lawyer to help them get the "facts" of the incident squared away. :shakehead:

    And that's why you shouldn't say anything either until you've spoken with your attorney. Regardless of the pressure put on you. Because you're just as traumatized as a cop would be, no?

    Maybe even more traumatized, as cops are the trained professionals. They are trained to handle the pressure and process the facts properly, whereas us mere "civilians" cannot be expected to handle the pressure.

    What I have been told is that Georgia LEOs are afforded 72 hours, post shooting, before being subject to questioning or making statements.

    Wow, that's enough time to get the DA on board.

    FWIW, Ayoob advises everyone involved in a shooting to say ONLY the following...

    1. “I’m the victim; he is the perpetrator.”
    2. “I will sign the complaint.”
    3. Point out evidence.
    4. Point out witnesses.
    5. If cops continue to question you, "I will wait to comment further until I speak with my attorney, just as you were taught to do."

    Don't forget "I feared for my life!" (Or the life of a loved one)

    A simple I felt threatened-- so I shot him like any cop would surely should be enough. But it ain't unless you are a cop.
