Detached Reflection, the Upturned Knife, and Type I Error: What's Wrong with a Duty to Retreat?
In the wake of a well-publicized self-defense trial in Florida, so-called "stand your ground" statutes have become a hot button issue across the United States. This talk will provide a history of the duty to retreat in American self-defense law, including an overview of how that duty has evolved (and, in many instances, become extinct) over time. We will also discuss policy arguments for and against the duty to retreat.
