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.

Really good true crime show

This is well done, great production quality, a good speaker, great story, very appropriate for this day & age with all the police shootings that have been in the news the last few years. I cant wait to hear the final outcome!
