Re: “Opinion: Judge Rainville’s Soft Racism

It is always disappointing when someone who has no idea what goes on in criminal courtrooms on a daily basis tries to use a single exchange in one criminal case to extrapolate commentary on some larger social issue. Spend a little time at the courthouse, Ms. Levine, and you would see that a defendant's behavior during an arrest, regardless of their race, is regularly discussed as a factor in bail arguments and plea agreements. Systematic and personal racism in the justice system is certainly a real problem, even here in Vermont, but Mr. Collins, making the kind of argument he would make for any client on these facts, is not an example of it. You should do more research and be better informed about your subject matter before making these kinds of accusations.
