Topics covered include: importance of learning self-defense law yourself and before the fight rather than just assuming your lawyer will save you after the fight; talking with the police in the aftermath of a use-of-force event; and the implications for case law and jury instructions when self-defense statutes are changed.
Hey folks, welcome back! Today’s podcast is a replay of my interview by German N24 News Television, in February 2014, immediately following the Zimmerman trial and much raging about Stand-Your-Ground in particular and American gun and self-defense law generally.
It’s had over 10,000 views on Youtube, which for a small-town lawyer feels kind of impressive. Just learned that view count today, which prompts my re-presenting it to all of you. I know that I found the German perspective on US self-defense and gun law & culture to be fascinating. I hope you enjoy it!
As usual, keep a pencil and paper handy to write down the “hidden” 20% discount code we’ve embedded at some point in the podcast. That code is good for 20% off ANYTHING at the Law of Self Defense web site. But it’s only valid for one week from the date the podcast was broadcast! So this particular code will be valid through September 13, 2017.
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.
