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.

Considerate speech given your positionality

I was excited to listen to this podcast until I found a few minutes in that you chose not to censor the use of the n-word. You should have censored it, it was not appropriate for you to say it despite the fact that you were using it in a quote.
