I mean..if he didn't have a knife...then not only did you draw your gun in the wrong time, but you are also lying. Are you saying make sure you don't have to lie if you draw your firearm?

    What if he does draw a knife, you draw a firearm, both call the cops, cops find both weapons, then what?

    What if he draws the knife, you back off, you both call 911, and they only find the knife?

    These questions don't serve a purpose, that's why I do not understand what your question was directed at...

    The lawyer was saying what if the bad guy ditched his weapon, he knew it could go bad so he turned the tables and now you are the only one with a weapon. What story does the cop believe?
    You are the one that could be charged.
    That is why the lawyer said, "it depends" meaning if I may expand the thoughts of the lawyer, is it could be a good idea and it could not be a good idea to dial 911.
    There is NO cut and dry answer to this question.

    True that, there is no clear cut answer.

    Some follow up questions, if someone draws a knife on you, should you let him out of sight allowing him to ditch the knife? We keep saying we should not pursue the suspect, but we are screwed if they call 911 and ditch their weapon...what to do? Hope the police find the other guys weapon? Don't call 911 so only the other guy has a recorded 911 call?

    You bring up some very good points.
    I think the best answer is train well and hard. Know the law the best you can. And never draw a weapon unless you plan on using it.

    You draw and don't call and he does, the cops arrest you, he wins.
    You go to jail, he wins.
    With the conviction he sues you for more than he expected to steal in the first place, he wins big.
    All this and he only had to make one call, the government did the rest for him.

    Could this really happen? It certainly has.

    Others have mentioned that the cops might not know of a criminal working the area and that you can let them know. Another situation is that they do know and you can inform them of a current location and what he is wearing.

  6. So, the best thing to do is go ahead and shoot the MOFO so there's only one story?

  7. One Story?

    You might want to check with George Zimmerman to see how that "one story" theory is working out for him.
