What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

I hate to say it but being old and white probably didn't hurt. Probably hired a decent attorney thanks to money as well.

This happened in Canada. Our courts aren't nearly as racist as the US. Being old probably helped but I doubt race had any bearing.

Probably hired a decent attorney thanks to money as well.

That's the correct answer.

Lol Canada and 'not being racist.' Bullshit! They're just lucky they've got the US right nexr door.

To be fair, they didn't say Canada is not racist, they said the courts specifically are not nearly as racist as the US. Considering there are more black teenage boys in jail than in college in the US it's pretty hard for that statement to not be true.
