How does a person’s emotional reactions relate to dealing with the rule of law? Bill Stierle and Tom discuss what happened in an episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, talking about the incident involving a man who called 911 for assistance in a robbery taking place at his neighbor’s home. They highlight the impact of the man’s emotional reaction to the situation and the 911 operator’s lack of communication skills to deescalate the caller. The caller escalated emotionally and eventually shot and killed the robbers. Bill and Tom discuss this incident in relation to Stand-Your-Ground-Laws that brings perspective into play as to why these laws are problematic, especially in a society where there are so many injuries and deaths due to gun violence.
