This video podcast is mostly a capture of the 30-minute Facebook Live session conducted on October 25, 2017.

Topics covered include: another example of why it’s essential that you educate yourself on self-defense law rather than presume someone else, even a criminal defense attorney, knows what they’re talking about; the difference between “hard” and “soft” Stand-Your-Ground; whether it’s a good idea to document your specialized knowledge using Mas Ayoob’s “mail your class notes to yourself” approach; the meaning of the term “curtilage” in the context of self-defense law in general and Castle Doctrine in particular; the relevance of Supreme Court cases like Tennessee v. Garner to civilian use of defensive force; whether you’re open to an assault charge if you draw a gun on a home invader who turns and leaves.

This video podcast is mostly a capture of the 30-minute Facebook Live session conducted on September 20, 2017.

Topics covered include: Rossiter v. Alaska, an appellate case in which a murder conviction was overturned because the appeals court determined that neither the defense attorney, the prosecutor, or the trial judge properly understood Alaska self-defense law. Critically important to know those stuff for yourself.

Also, the acquittal of another police officer in a case involving the use of deadly force by the officer against a non-compliant, armed, black suspect.

NOTE: This is not our typical podcast in which we cover substantive use-of-force law. Rather, this particular podcast is to inform our listener/viewers of our Labor Day 50% Discount Sale on our "Law of Self Defense LEVEL 1 Class" DVD sets. We will return with our usual substantive podcasts later this week.
