“If you are known as a menace to your neighborhood and then you have the best shooting–it is the best textbook, self-defense shooting in the world–you still might go to prison because when they interview everybody and the media is out there interviewing everybody all your neighbors are going to say, “I bet he murdered that guy. He was an absolute menace to society. Nobody likes him…” It can bite you in the rear end.” — Erik Utrecht
What legacy are you leaving and how could that affect you and your claims of self-defense? Erik Utrecht joins us the show to talk about the difference between morality and legality–between what we can legally do to defend ourselves and innocent life, and how our own perceptions of what is right and wrong can sometimes get us into trouble. Many times the country over, good people have done what they have thought was right and ended up in legal trouble for it. Even more interesting is the number of people who don’t understand why those people were charged with crimes. After all, weren’t they trying to help? Erik helps us dive a little bit further into what is going on in these situations and what we can do to protect ourselves from the same fate.
