Description:
Armed with new evidence, we unravel the web of contradictions surrounding allegations of police abuse in so-called 'Starlight Tours.' Have police in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, dropped off native people in isolated places to freeze to death, as headlines proclaim? Former Constables

Hatchen and Munson speak out for the first time about what actually occurred that early morning when they dropped off Darrell Night - in the ride that rocked their lives. Night arrived home safely. But the tragic coincidence of two Native men later found frozen to death in the city's west end sparked outrage by activists and media. The officers were publicly condemned before anyone listened to their side of the story. Even the justice system seemed to bow to activist pressure. The officers were sent to prison where their murder may have been plotted.

Now, at last, learn the other side of the story: the attack on the officers' vehicle, the important tape recording never heard by the jury, polygraph tests clearing Munson and Hatchen of involvement in two subsequent deaths, plus crucial evidence the RCMP missed. The officers say they await that most elemental principle of justice - a fair hearing. The justice system is charged with respecting the laws of the land. But when police become prey, will justice be served? Or will justice turn political... and truth be silenced.
