I am taking a short break from 1995 to air a podcast series over the next several weeks about an unprecedented legal case that has been making news in Toronto since July 2013.  That's when 18-year-old Sammy Yatim was shot and killed by a Toronto Police Officer.  Yatim was armed with a small knife and was standing just inside an empty streetcar when Toronto Constable James Forcillo shot him 8 times.  Forcillo was eventually convicted in the teen's death but this fall the police officer will appeal the conviction.  His lawyers say the judge caused a miscarriage of justice when he excluded evidence that Yatim may have been on a mission to commit suicide by cop.
