He leaves and Durant tells Alexis that hes going to be trying Manny himself and expects justice to be served. He reminds her that Manny is a violent, homicidal psychopath and sociopath.

He tells her that she cannot keep having blind faith in Immanuel Ruiz. He reminds her that she must take a good look at the pictures of her two little girls.
