Examination in Chief - Hunting the Vulnerable

Examination in Chief - The Internet: Hero or Villain?

In OUTtv’s true crime documentaries, Killer in the Village, The Cobra Killers, and Surviving the Block, some of the LGBTQ2S+ community’s most vulnerable people were preyed upon, becoming victims – and survivors – of terrible crimes. In episode two, Justice Harvey Brownstone conducts an Examination in Chief to find out how being a minority – from sexual and gender identity to race and religion – can make a person more vulnerable.

Justice Brownstone is joined by the Executive Director of the Alliance for South Asian Aids Prevention, Haran Vijayanathan, the LGBTQ Liaison for the Toronto Police Service, Danielle Bottineau, and The Cobra Killers director, Buffy Childerhose.

*Editor’s Note: The podcast mentions the documentary “Cobra Killer,” however the correct name of the film is The Cobra Killers.
