During the course of a persons life it is not entirely uncommon for them to be accused of committing a crime that they are most certainly innocent of In most cases the accusations are disregarded and the individual is largely unaffected by it Unfortunately though there are many poor souls who are not so lucky and have their lives forever changed due to these miscarriages of justice Manufacturing Guilt Wrongful Convictions in Canada explores the brutal processes in which several innocent men were sentenced unjustly for crimes they didnt commit While unavoidable human error is always a possibility a careful study of the cases involved shows how innocent people were unjustly accused and the subject of extreme discrimination due to their social differences from society Even at a cursory glance it appears obvious that marginalized people are at the heart of wrongful convictions and suffer the prejudice of the criminal justice system from the time they are suspected of the crime and even after they are cleared of the charges Even before a particular crime is committed there are certain people in society that is easier and more convenient to blame than others These individuals due to their race class or lack of social skills are targeted from the beginning and generally assumed guilty on sight As with the Marshall case where it was evident that a young man of native descent was blamed for murder simply for the fact that it was convenient to do so As the author points out the Marshall case took place in a small town where murders are rare and so the public pressure was so great on the police
