What's your opinion? Does initially lying to the police increase your chances of being held responsible for an "accident?"A Muncie man faces a felony charge in connection with this week’s shooting of a New Castle man he described as “my buddy.”Donald R. Wood, 25, was arrested Wednesday, the same day 23-year-oldMichael Dean Whittle was shot in a house at 1703 Plum St. in New Castle. A day later Wood was charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a Class C felony carrying a standard four-year prison term.
But, that's not what Farago's crew is always talking about. The STFU advice would probably piss the cops off as much as making up a story about an intruder or a drive by.
How about this for a wild concept, if you have an "accident" with a gun, you come clean, admit your part in it and let the chips fall where they may. Same thing if you're involved in a truly legitimate DGU. If you tell the truth, the forensic evidence will back you up. There's nothing to fear.
But, if you're a hidden criminal who fired a gun unnecessarily or prematurely, you better take the TTAG advice. For you, only a talented shyster and a good bit of luck will work.
Another aspect of this story we must not overlook is that he was not charged with illegal possession of a gun or possession of a gun by a convicted felon or misdemeanor wife-beater. You know what that means.
