"When Justice Fails s Carl Karp and Cecil Rosner's definitive account of one of Canada's most odious miscarriages of justice. David Milgaard spent 22 years behind bars; the victim of a rush to judgement that saw him, at 17, wrongfully convicted of murder.
This powerful book, packed with all the drama of a novel, takes the reader back to the fateful morning of January 31, 1969, when a young nurse's aide was found stabbed to death in a Saskatoon alley. As the months passed, police became increasingly desperate to solve the mystery of who killed her. Then, after they posted a reward for information, someone came forward with a name - David Milgaard's.
No physical evidence linked Milgaard to the crime. Moreover, police seemingly ignored any connections the case may have had with the actions of a serial rapist then on the loose in Saskatoon. Later, statements made by supposed key witnesses - statements that appeared to point to Milgaard as the killer - were tainted by contradictions, retractions, and charges of police harassment.
Joyce Milgaard, David's mother, always believed in her son's innocence. Through her's and others' efforts, new evidence finally came to light - evidence that pointed the finger at the most likely suspect.
"When Justice Fails, is a shocking take of justice gone completely awry.
