In 2013, a Toronto Police Officer shot and killed a teenager armed with a knife on a streetcar. Videotaped footage showing the officer firing 9 times at Sammy Yatim caused public outrage. The officer would go on trial and be found guilty of attempted murder. But this fall his lawyers will argue before the Ontario Court of Appeal that there was a miscarriage of justice when the trial judge refused evidence that the teen was on a mission to commit suicide by cop. This podcast is written and produced by Kathy Kenzora who is also host of a podcast called 1995.

Powerful

A powerfully presented series.

Worth listening to

I found the narrator difficult to listen to but persisted because it is a very interesting case. Worth listening to. Added bonus of relatively short episodes so you can binge listen and get through it fairly quickly.

Great presenter

I always find the presenter's delivery to be one of the biggest influencers on whether or not I like and trust a podcast, alongside their research and the script.

Kathy is fantastic here, as she is on her other podcast 1995, on all counts.

Definitely highly recommend, and it's one of my favourite podcasts.
