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.
