Terrifying. Serves as a reminder -- as if you really needed one! -- that racism is alive and well, and that the police are as likely to act on it as anyone else out there. It's also a reminder that there are good-hearted people out there, who will never stop asking the right questions and working to see that justice is done. If only that were enough to give Neil Stonechild back to his family.

I read this about 4 months after moving to Saskatoon. It was a very revealing look into the prejudice facing the aborignal population here, and whilst Saskatoon is reflected in a poor light, I think it is a very human story of the racism aboriginal populations face across the world.

Important to read if you don't think police in Saskatoon/Saskatchewan/Canada profile. One downside to this book and the case(s) it discusses is that people seem to think the police learned their lesson and don't do it here anymore. They do in more sublime but no as subtle ways.

Got this at a used book sale for a buck in NEW condition...it was a great find. So far really good! but I haven't had time to get past the second chapter yet. It looks promising.
