Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-read “This book is a must-read for every police officer. The facts presented in this book will shake your confidence in the justice system to the core.” –Howard Burns, President Calgary Police Association

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Police Become Prey The Cold Hard Facts What is revealed in this book is a scathing indictment of the "Justice" system in Canada and in particular, Saskatchewan. It reveals that the media has great influence over the minds of the masses and that a scandal can be created by reckless and irresponsible reporting. It reveals that the pride of Canada's police, the RCMP, can get away with making up "evidence" as they go. It reveals that ANYONE can be destroyed in the name of "political correctness" and a perceived (but perverse), sense of the "greater good". This case demonstrates that those representing "justice" at all levels can bring the administration of justice into disrepute and get away with it. This book is a must read for anyone who has an interest in law enforcement, justice, social justice, First Nations studies. If ANYONE thinks it cant happen to them, THINK AGAIN!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from President of Calgary Police Association shares his opinion “A must read for all police officers.” -- Howard Burns

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, thought provoking This meticulously researched and readable book convincingly shows an injustice occurred in the rush to judgment regarding the death of Neil Stonechild, a 17-year-old who died of exposure in November 1990 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In an inquiry a decade later, two Saskatoon Police Service officers unjustly lost their reputations and careers. Compelling evidence gathered by Candis McLean which was available to the Saskatoon Police Service, the RCMP which investigated when the case was reopened and to other justice system sources shows that the two officers never had any contact with the youth but they were fired anyhow on the grounds that they did not enter the contact in their notebooks. This book shows a disturbing lack of impartiality in the Saskatchewan justice system, a disregard for the principle of justice of everyone regardless of their color, ethnicity or work, that should concern every Canadian. A must read of everyone who wants to preserve the Canadian justice system.
