I'm so shocked by reading the last few posts in this topic, honestly,

Predators are everywhere, not just in the US, also in tiny Denmark [for my part]. Absolutely terrible stories pops up now and then - also here. Those cases are however still dealt with in the court system.

-Do you not trust the US legal system? [opinions of Canadians are not relevant here]

I don't trust the US legal system in general.  It works sometimes especially when you are middle class and can afford a decent lawyer.  Where the legal system breaks down completely is when the defendant is either a police officer, politically connected, very rich, or very poor.    The poor get screwed over.
 If you are poor and the legal system gets you in its sights you are going to jail whether or not you actually did anything. The other 3 groups can do whatever they want and rarely suffer consequences for their actions.

And the politically connected are at the top of the food chain.  Even if you are very rich, if you are in a position to do real harm to the politically connected your life expectancy is very short indeed.

I agree with this. But on the other end of the spectrum we have ambulance chasing lawyers who take ridiculous cases like "I spilled my coffee on myself and it burned me." and sue the hell out of companies for things that should be dismissed as common sense. The exodus of common sense in society has lead to the degradation, corruption, abuse and ultimate failure of our judicial system. And it's happening at an exponential rate.
