Bon mots -- again

"I just think that it's perplexing to have the mayor of the city calling in about this issue, particularly because it's in front of a jury and he knew that, but more so because he seemed to be uneducated about [the phrase] 'not criminally responsible' and what that means," Leora Shemesh, lawyer, Star March 25/13.
"It is truly astonishing that the Mayor of Toronto espouses such a gross misunderstanding of the law and mental illness," said Toronto lawyer Sean Robichaud. "There is also something unsettling and disrespectful to the justice system when a politician of his position provides his opinion on a verdict that he seems to know little about, the night before the jury is set to deliberate." Star, March 25/13
