This week's debate involves a despicable type of human: a person who presents themselves as an angel in the public eye, but is secretly heinous. The person? Michelle Carter, who encouraged a boy she was dating to take his life. Is she to blame? Let's ask Charles Manson about influencing people to do things. We also discuss the autopilot Tesla car that crashed, and WTAE news anchor, Wendy Bell who's tired of being discriminated against for saying things only blacks can get away with. I'm joined by Robin Higgins and Mikey Bolts this week. Robin's new book, "We Don't Think You're Racist" is out with a cameo by yours truly. What a hero. Here's Mikey Bolts' incredible Eminem Rap God rendition with over 19 million views, which is more than the population of The Netherlands and Kazakhstan: https://youtu.be/BXd7a87fM_s And finally, my E3 wrap-up video is released: https://youtu.be/Sb1QfkXtAWw Voicemail Number: 1-562-58-I-RULE (1-562-584-7853) madcastmedia.com Sources: Washington Post - "It's now or never..." texts from Michelle Carter - https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/08/31/its-now-or-never-texts-reveal-teens-efforts-to-pressure-boyfriend-into-suicide/?tid=a_inl Findlaw.com - Case of Melchert-Dinkel and his posing as a nurse to encourage suicide - http://caselaw.findlaw.com/mn-supreme-court/1660689.html Washington Post - Roy had a history of depression - https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/07/02/i-mean-youre-about-to-die-teen-who-urged-boyfriend-to-kill-himself-will-stand-trial/?tid=sm_fb NY Post - Tesla driver killed in autopilot crash while allegedly watching Harry Potter - http://nypost.com/2016/07/02/tesla-driver-killed-in-autopilot-crash-was-watching-harry-potter/ Trib Live - Wendy Bell sues WTAE for racial discrimination - http://triblive.com/mobile/10663728-96/bell-fired-wtae "Mining by Moonlight" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Music to Delight" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Car - Azreey - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Car_accident_-_NSE_Malaysia.jpg
