Great advice from Don West, co-defense counsel representing George Zimmerman.
One thing is for sure... DO NOT RUN YOUR MOUTH.
I hope that 2016 is the year that George Zimmerman finds an average job out of the public eye, and regains a more normal routine. George still seems traumatized by what happened, and to some degree, I can’t blame him for remaining unfocused and angry.
“He broke into my house. I feared for my life and the lives of my family. There is nothing else to say.”
Repeat as needed.
Also, don’t forget to get yourself some pre-paid legal help.
I use Second Call Defense and Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network.
Beware of some of these types of businesses, though. Some won’t help until AFTER your acquittal. By then, you’re broke, fired and screwed.
Assert that you were the victim of the crime, that you were in fear for your life or the lives of others, and that you want a lawyer.
keep off the grass and don’t throw your butts around.
wipe your feet.
“What to do after shooting”
Crank up the backhoe and get rid of the body before the flies can ring the dinner bell.
It’s a hell of a thing, killing a man. You take away everything he’s got and everything he’s ever gonna have. I didn’t want that guy to be me.
"And then he limped, on his own, down the block".
"And the two bullet holes in his back are because he turned his head around like an owl ... and I was 'a feared' for my life."
"And squirrels ran off with his guns after I stopped him. I was a feared for my life".
Low profile...he showed up at the Vegas shot show last year.
I’ve always been advised to only answer questions that pertain to your identity and Y/N questions regarding material ownership (home, weapon, car...). All other information should be given only to the authorities via your attorney.
Amateur! You freeze the vermin overnight. Next morning, you take them to a catfish pond that, somehow, had a wood-chipper backed up to it.
I am reminded of a line from Tom Clancy’s “Patriot Games”, where one of the terrorists realizes:
“You can kill anybody you want - you just don’t talk about it afterwards.”
Or as we say, “shoot/shovel/shut up”.
"Yes officer, I feared for my life. I'm having difficulty breathing, I want to go to the hospital now".
Jeff Cooper used to say, “Be shook! Be very shook!”
“After the police leave, break out the champagne!”
....and I will be happy to assist with your investigation after being treated at the hospital....where my attorney will be glad to meet us.
Full worms are happy worms.
It is my opinion that said man gave away all he has and all he'll ever have the moment he decided to break into my house with plans to inflict harm upon me and mine. The legal ramifications are all I would have a concern about.
My dad used to tell me “Don’t ever say you wish someone was dead! If they suddenly turn up dead, YOU will be the first suspect.”
I used to have a man I worked with who ran his mouth.
“By God I wish I could get old R——— in MY rifle sights! I’d kill him and leave him over on the Indian Reservation! I wouldn’t even bury him, just leave him for the buzzards! I’d teach him a thing or two! I’d fix HIM and his little TOADY B-— too!”
I would tell him not to run his mouth so much! “Everyone Here wants to kill him, and if he turns up dead, YOU will be the first suspect!”
