    I will never forget listening to an interview with Law & Order creator Dick Wolf on NPR’s Fresh Air. He said, no matter what, never tell someone to shoot you. He said, it happens in the movies someone says, “You want to shoot me, go ahead and shoot me,” and the person backs off. Not in real life. He rode around with cops in researching for the show and they would show up and ask the shooter why he shot the victim and the shooter would typically reply, “Well, he TOLD ME to shoot him.”

    I was once on a grand jury and we got a case where we had to determine whether to file assault and battery charges against a knife-wielder-stabber, or accept attempted murder charges. My argument in favor of attempted murder was that the stabber actually said, “Okay, now I’m going to kill somebody.”

    Unfortunately, many of the other jurors had seen “Twelve Angry Men” one too many times and were saying, “How many times have you said ‘I’m going to kill you’?”

    Well, sure, but I didn’t then proceed to try to do it.

    Never ask a question that you don’t want the answer.

    I think it was Trotsky who said if you ask a question you just might get an answer.

      I think he may of asked a similar question as the one pictured before he met his end.

          Just saw this by accident. Thank you for the correction. I often need an editor.
