@Jerzy, @Michael554, @Kevin29 if y’all don’t mind, we can start a “But Then What?” Thread to keep the other one on track and open. I have a question, and I feel it fits in with some of y’alls coverage questions.
So, I have heard two different things…
Option 1: don’t say anything when the cops come, and wait for your lawyer.
Option 2: tell your story.
These are only my opinion and may be flawed, but it’s only my opinion…
Option 1 gives someone that may not have seen everything to tell a story about what they saw with filled in blanks. Also, IMO, gives you possibly not a fair start. Everyone but you tells a story, and you go last.
Option 2: I believe this is the best option. It allows you to point out witnesses, evidence, etc. I would be very careful with this as to not get rubber jaw. It gives evidence a chance to tell a story before it moves, allows minimal time for witnesses to forget details, and gives you a chance to tell a story about who was the aggressor, etc.
On the other hand the saying Silence is golden may apply because you don’t necessarily want to sing like a bird either, and with all the adrenaline and whatnot, it can be hard to control that.
The membership card says to not say anything and wait for your rep… Does pointing out witnesses and evidence etc. void coverage?
