0285 - Three Important Lessons to Take From Sanford, FL

/
We don't know all the details regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, and I don't expect that we ever will. At the same time, however, there are some lessons that can be taken from this situation that are based on the facts that are clear to us. It would be wrong to not take some time to look for the lessons in this situation and how we can apply these lessons to our own life to make sure that we don't find ourselves in a quagmire like we see being played out in the media.

0169 - Rules vs. Laws

/
One of the issues many of my students struggle with is when to carry a gun. For me that isn't so much of a struggle. The first thing I try to do is understnad the differences between rules and laws and why the difference matters. That is our topic for today. Enjoy the show.

In war "Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." Heraclitus (circa 500 BC)

0119 - Legal Prep for Violence

/
There is a tremendous amount at stake when we find ourselves involved in a violent encounter. Often times violence occurs without warning despite the fact that many of us work to remain constantly vigilant to the threats around us. We can find out that we are under attack when we are being hit, shot or stabbed. When things happen this quickly we don't have time to second guess. We can't spend time wondering where our gun is, is there one in the tube, or is it going to go bang when I pull the trigger. We can't stop to take a quick unarmed combat class that we haven't gotten around to yet, or ponder whether the class we did take taught us applicable skills. Violence happens too fast to worry about any of that when we are in the middle of it. We have to act. The same must be given to the legal considerations of violence. With violence there is too much at stake to not have all the academic aspects taken care of BEFORE we experience the violence. Keep in mind, if we hesitate with our response or respond with to little force, it could cost us our lives. On the other end of the spectrum, if we act too soon, or deliver force that is excessive we risk our freedom. Without understanding the use of force and the law, we set ourselves up for a series of pitfalls that are sure to follow a violent encounter.
