Topic: Today all America saw the body-cam footage of a thirteen year-old Chicagoan named Adam Toledo being shot and killed by a Chicago police officer after Toledo had complied with an order to put his hands up. In this third episode of the “Adventures in Metajournalism” podcast, I react to this tragic video as a former criminal investigator, former criminal defense attorney, and current member of both state and federal bars.
