While this wasn't my favorite Flashpoint episode and a bit of a letdown after Severed Ties, I still think it was an important episode because it reminds us that racism - even if not this extreme - is still far too prevalent in our culture. Any time a show shines a light on the underbelly of society and makes us look at things we might rather not, it is a good thing.
This episode also underscores the powerful impact that one misguided person can have on a large group of people, especially youth. While there is no question Victor Ackland's story is sad, there is never any justification whatsoever for this kind of behavior. Many people have difficult stories and everyone has challenges in life. While it is worthy of compassion, it is never a justification for threatening the lives of others.
Overall, I did like the episode.
