I think what some are not understanding is that the advice of "don't talk to the police" does not mean "don't say anything at all to the police." Bren is right, at the scene you want to make sure they understand you are the victim. Standing mute tends to make people think you are hiding something.

Deaf and I often disagree on issues, but go back and read his post #142. You don't want to allow the police to interrogate you without having your attorney present, and youdon't want to talk about the details of the shooting for reasons already mentioned. But you are probably ahead of the game if you do tell them that you were attacked, who witnesses are, where evidence is, and so on. If you don't then they pretty much have to assume you are a BG and treat you as such
