What role do leaders play in shaping the way a community responds to a crisis and in preventing other crises?

The role that leaders play is they organize everything, they get everyone under control and use fairness to solve the crises and then they keep fixing the problems to prevent other crises. In "The Night James Brown Saved Boston" the leader was James Brown because once M.L.K was murdered everyone was going crazy but James Brown calmed them down by his inspirational music. In "The Two Towns of Jasper" the leader was the judges because they were deciding if King, Berry, and Brewer got the life in prison or the death sentence.
