This episode will discuss the tendency for crimes to be adjudicated and laws to be passed based upon sensational cases and emotion rather then upon reason based upon evidence and facts.

We will examine four examples:

1) The Case of Mary Surratt, accused of conspiracy to assassinate President Lincoln

2) Sex Crime Hysteria in 1952 and today

3) George W. Bush's Patriot Act

4) Sandy Hook Massacre
