Leave a comment

Anita Arvast will be reading from her new book Bloody Justice: The Truth behind the Bandido Massacre at Shedden on October 18, 2012 from 7-8pm at Georgian College’s Barrie Campus, Building D. Book info from Amazon.ca:

The largest mass murder in Canada’s history—and how the Canadian court system let a killer go free

On the night of April 7, 2006, eight members of the motorcycle gang the Bandidos were killed execution style and left in a farmer’s field near London, Ontario. The brutal slaying, the largest mass killing in Canada’s history, was reported as the work of a rival motorcycle gang. The Shedden Massacre instantly made international headlines, as did the sensational murder trial that followed. In Bloody Justice, readers are taken to the very night of the crime itself, to the key players and perpetrators, to the events leading to the slayings—and inside a trial that let a killer go free.

Despite a lengthy, highly publicized trial and the subsequent conviction of six men, author Anita Arvast outlines her startling premise that the Crown’s main witness, an informant, lied. Reflecting the author’s painstaking research, attendance at the trials, and jailhouse interviews with one of the convicted, Bloody Justice outlines a fascinating case that is very much at odds with the prosecution’s.

  • Details how the Crown’s case was based upon the testimony of a paid informant
  • The book dissects the crime scene and court testimony
  • Offers insightful research on the key players involved, casting actions, evidence and circumstances in a drastically different light than the prosecution

With its eye-opening research and fast-paced narrative, Bloody Justice offers a compelling new look at a shocking crime and its aftermath that will forever change any common notions of justice—on the street or in the courtroom.
