In Defense of Running from the Cops

In Defense of Running from the Cops

If you've ever wondered what to say to someone whose response to another cop committing murder is "shoulda complied", I got you covered. Turns out our bodies are programmed to protect us from danger. Weird, right? And even more shocking: that self-protection programming your nervous system is running? Yeah that's not under voluntary control.

In this episode we'll explore the actual reasons people run from the cops or otherwise fail to follow commands, why evolution contributed to this nervous system response, and what we can do about it. (Hint: it has to do with not murdering people for things that are literally not under voluntary control.)
