Okay everyone I’m going to give a scenario and this is the question about a 911 call.
Congratulations, it’s pay day, you have no groceries in the house and it’s time to stock up. You’re heading to go to the grocery store you are armed with a handgun and you carry it on you legally.
You scan the parking lot for any unusual or suspicious activity, you don’t find any, and you stay situationally aware at the grocery store.
You go through the checkout, it’s just a regular night, you’re relax and calm can’t wait to sit at home and watch a movie with the popcorn that’s in one of your bags.
You head out to the parking lot, check your surroundings, and on the way to your car somebody pops up out from behind one with a knife and says “give me your money”
He has a knife, you’re armed, you determine that your life will likely still be in danger even after you give him everything you got, you don’t know how this is going to go down, so you yell “STOP GET BACK!” You drop your groceries, crushed your eggs, smashed your bread, and ended up pulling your gun.
The robber with the knife, shits himself and runs away. The threat is now over, and now you need to dial 911.
Now we have the right to not self-incriminate. The question is, what do you say in the 911 call?
Do you not mention that you pulled a gun?
Just say. “I’m at the Kroger’s on Cedar Street, I just had an attempted robbery, and the robber went running south in red sweats towards McDonald’s armed with a knife, I need police on their way.” then tell the police your location and wait for them to arrive.
Or do you tell them you’ve been robbed, and you had to draw your gun and the guy ran away?
Thoughts on this?
