#071: Don't turn a robbery into a homicide.

#071: Don't turn a robbery into a homicide.

On today's episode, Greg and Brian are talking about how diminished cognitive performance under stressful conditions affects your decision making. We are using a recent example from Ohio where several teenagers in a stolen vehicle taunted police officers because they thought the officers weren’t going to chase them due to physical distancing policies.  

In the episode, we cover how to continue the critical thinking process, even during high-emotion events.
