He mentions in the recording providing police with a death threat he received before this happens. I'd like to know more about that.<quoted text>
You have already posted that you don't think he should be convicted of anything.
Your statement that the charges are correct here therefore makes no sense, because you don't charge people if you don't think they should or will be convicted.
I'm not sure you have a grasp of the basics of the legal system.
I agree there are a lot of mitigating factors here...beyond the guy summarily executing two people and then openly telling the police that's what he intended to do and did....
Two kids in a small town shot and killed. They had to charge him and let a jury of his peers decide his fate.(imo) Don't concern yourself with my grasp of the legal system. This is an opinion board.
