    "If the Sam got involved to protect his friend, then why would he leave if he was under the impression that danger was still present or could return? At least drag your friend with you, if your initial involvement was due to concern for their safety.

    1. There are bad guys threatening my friend, I will insert myself.
    2. Bad guys might show up where I and my friend are, I will extract myself.

    Depends on how lawyers try to sell it."

    Hmm, very interesting point. Just my tin foil hat self, but something is screwy with this, as far as the facts we are given.

    I am thinking gang affiliation, or I am just crazy. Hard to Monday morning quarterback stuff.

    But, stuff like this is a great mental exercise, to think about what you would or might do.

    The question the likely response triggers, for me - In leaving, are you trying to draw danger away from your friend, since you just defended them from that danger, or are you leaving your friend to deal with the danger you fear you just brought upon yourself?

    Of course not.

    I presume you are joking. A person shoots someone else and takes off? How can anyone know that his first objective is not to get rid of the gun, and his second, to disappear? Is he armed and dangerous? The answer: he is a wanted man.

    No one knows your plans but you. To everyone else, you are acting like a guilty person.

    And how will anyone know that you did not alter evidence?

    Or possibly to make good your escapes, to get rid of evidence, or to shoot someone else.

    If you are serious about this, you need some training and education, pronto. In the mean time don't act on your own advice.

    If you are being sarcastic, we do not need that here.

    You still fail to grasp that the fact of leaving the scene (flight) can be considered to be evidence of guilt.

    Here's what some cases say:

    • State v. Walker, 595 P.2d 1098 (Kan., 1979), at 1099 - 1100:

    • State v. Quiroz, 772 N.W.2d 710 (Wis. App., 2009), at 716:

    • State v. Robinson, 360 S.C. 187 (S.C. App., 2004), at 195:

    I don't think you brought it upon yourself. I think you lifted off your friend and simply shifted it to yourself. And if they come back it will be escalated.
