Summary:
Polly Klaas was abducted from her home in Petaluma, California during a slumber party. She was never seen alive again. Her killer, Richard Allen Davis, had the proverbial rap sheet a mile long; he had been arrested 25 times and spent 17 of the previous 20 years in jail. How can society be protected from people like Davis? Why does the penal system fail so abjectly in its attempt to rehabilitate inmates? Is there even any attempt made to rehabilitate prisoners, or do their jailhouse experiences make them more bitter, hardened and dangerous? AMERICAN JUSTICE explores the details of the Klaas case in search of answers to these important questions. Klaas's father shares his feeling of rage and betrayal, while jurors and attorneys provide a firsthand look at the trial the finally put Davis away for good. And legal experts reveal why the penal system has failed in its mission to rehabilitate, and the proposed reforms that might make cases like Klaas's less likely in the future.
