The use of the right of self-defense as a legal justification for the use of force in times of danger is available in many jurisdictions, but the interpretation varies widely. Today we are testing this interpretation with cases such as Trayvon Martin and Marissa Alexander. What really is your right to defend yourself? When does that right begin, and when does it end?

Join your hosts, Bryan Babcock and Seterria Brodnex, as they explore  the right for civilians acting on their own behalf to engage in violence for the sake of defending one's own life, or the lives of others, including the use of deadly force. Is that right too broad? Tune in to find out.
