ALJ Podcast Task

One of our ALJ tasks which we will start this term, is to create a podcast on a high profile New Zealand crime / trial. The topics you will choose from will also include cyper crime and serious fraud cases. These cases have all been well publicised in the media. The cases have all been carefully chosen by your teacher as each case is unique in the history of the New Zealand Justice System.

To give you an idea of what you will be required to do, please view my podcast / slideshow on the David Bain case. I would like you to give me some constructive criticism on my efforts. Please comment using the PMI format. Plus, minus, interesting or improvement. Again, I'd like you view and comment by the end of the week.

  27. Hay Mr B
    Ineresting Podcast Mr B :)
    But the verdict has now been said
    NOT GUILTY WooHoo!
    Im Pretty sure me and Bailey are going to do the Bruce Emery Case as i was interested in it. I mean why would a 40yr old man kill a 15yr old kid for tagging and then blame the kid for walking into the knife! Weird really but i think Bruce Emery killed him. But i do understand where the guy came from i mean i wouldnt want someone tagging or vandilising my propety!
    O Well
    Ive Got to go
    Peter :)
