Shooting anyone is a bad idea, and unless its self-defense, you are likely to find yourself facing a life sentence. Statements made prior to the crime are considered “confessions” of the shooter’s intent. Our system allows for the defendant to be presumed innocent in court until he’s found guilty by a judge or jury. However, when the crime is caught on camera and published on tv, you can be sure the court of public opinion will have reached a verdict well before your first court appearance.

Moral of the story: don’t shoot anyone and if you do, it’s an even worse idea to do it on TV.
