Never, ever talk to the police.
Never, ever, ever, for any reason answer questions or give a statement to the police, without the advice and presence of an attorney.

I can go along with that, a lawyer may come along and tell us that was to much information, but it sounds reasonable to me.
None of the evidence about timelines, or not remembering what the man he shot said, etc would have been presented at the trial. In fact there probably would not have been a trial, if Fish would have kept silent.
