Empathy Based in High-Stress Communication: Eric Maddox
Synopsis: In 2003, while assigned to a special operations task force in Tikrit, Eric conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the intelligence which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein.
Christmas Day Standoff, Phoenix Police Department: Officer Ben Morris
Synopsis: On Christmas Day in 2017, celebrity weight-loss guru Milan Ross spent the morning with his two children singing and making videos portraying a happy, loving family. Milan had high hopes that when his ex-wife arrived to pick up the boys, his recent success and the spirit of the season would spark new hope for a future together. But disappointment coupled with alcohol would lead to a much different outcome, and less than 2 hours after the singing stopped, Milan would commit unspeakable acts of violence against his own family. In addition to calls from witnesses reporting the violence, Milan dialed 9-1-1 to state that he killed his wife and threatened that if police try to enter his apartment he would kill his kids. A six-hour hostage standoff would ensue, with negotiators racing to understand the man and his motives, and tactical units struggling to find advantage in an almost hopeless scenario.
