Dr. Hauke is interviewed by 12News about how temperature may lead to an increase in violent crimes. Dr. Hauke says,
When we feel really hot, we may feel like we’re being threatened, or under threat. It’s going to make us be more impulsive, more aggressive. That person that cut you off […] may not have bothered you when it was 85 degress, but when it’s 112, that may really make you angry.
However, this isn’t necessarily true in Arizona; the hottest periods of the year don’t correlate with an increase in violent crimes, since people are often more likely to stay in during such scorching weather.
