The Dehumanization of Cindy Gladue
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents an analysis of the language and actions surrounding a jury trial in Alberta in 2015. The findings include many examples of prejudicial or in some cases what may be considered inappropriate or ethically compromised actions or words. I wish to state for the record that I do not believe any of the members of the Crown or Defense teams, nor the Court were in any way motivated by conscious bias, racist beliefs or any improper intent. For the most part their words and actions reflected the mainstream discourse as it is commonly used. I may question their judgement in some instances but not their intentions to do anything other than honourably discharge their obligations.
