Thomas Arthur’s case was first featured in Justice:Denied 10 years ago (Vol. 1 Issue
7, Fall 1999). Arthur has spent more than 20 years on Alabama’s death row while the
State of Alabama has fought tooth and nail for more than a decade to block the forensic/DNA
testing of blood, hair, sperm and other evidence recovered from the crime scene that
Arthur claims will prove he is innocent of the murder he was convicted of committing.
No physical or forensic evidence links Arthur to the crime, two alibi witnesses place
him an hours drive from the crime scene, and the State’s only eyewitness is the victim’s
wife, who didn’t identify Arthur until she was offered immediate parole from her
life sentence for murdering her husband.
Finally, in April 2009 a state judge ordered DNA testing of several crime scene
items, including a wig worn by the murderer. In July 2009 the test results excluded
Arthur’s DNA from being on any item.
The judge denied the request of Arthur’s pro bono lawyers for more state of the art
DNA testing of the wig and other as yet untested evidence, to not just further exclude
Arthur — but to identify Wicker’s murderer. The judge returned the case to the Alabama
Supreme Court, and on September 3, 2009 Alabama’s Attorney General requested that
the Court set a new execution date.
Arthur has had four stays of execution, twice being hours from execution.
How are so many innocent people convicted in the United States, and why are so many
of those wrongly convicted people unable to overturn their conviction? This book
explains how and why that has happened in 25 chapters at include:
* Collateral Damage: The Government Considers Innocent People In Prison As Collateral
* Why There Is An Evolving Unfairness In The Courts Of The United States.
Examines of the expanding power of prosecutors and their increasing politicization.
Law Professor Angela J. Davis explains how the day-to-day practices and decisions
of prosecutors produce unfair and unequal treatment of defendants. Davis argues that
prosecutors are under-regulated and the mechanisms purportedly holding prosecutors
accountable are ineffectual and foster a climate of tolerance for misconduct.

Arbitrary Justice: The Power
of the American Prosecutor
Mike Piaskowski was exonerated and released in 2001 after serving six years of a
life sentence for the 1992 murder of Thomas Monfils in Green Bay, WI. Piaskowski
’s five co-defendants remain imprisoned.
The Monfils Conspiracy details in its 520 pages that all six men convicted of the
crime are innocent, and their convictions were the result of a mistake-riddled investigation
that overlooked many solid leads, and a reckless prosecution.
The authors, who were aided by Piaskowski, rely on extensive interviews, court documents,
police reports, and other documentation to make their case that the Monfils Six are
