Video Discription: Bad Day at Barhead examined whether the investigation into the Mayerthorpe police killings, including the arrests of two Alberta men, was aimed at distracting attention away from allegations of negligence within the force.

Peter Schiemann at a rural farm in Mayerthorpe, Alberta. Shooter James Roszko died at the scene. Shawn Hennessey and Dennis Cheesman later pled guilty to four counts of manslaughter, related to providing assistance to Roszko on the day of the shooting. --- Subscribe for more videos from The Fifth Estate : http://bit.ly/25W8cpn Connect with The Fifth Estate online : Website : http://bit.ly/1d0FBxq Facebook : http://bit.ly/1UO9B8S Twitter : http://bit.ly/237VM8P Instagram : http://bit.ly/25W8SLs About the fifth estate : For four decades The Fifth Estate has been Canada's premier investigative documentary program.
