No. I think Manning was a dumb kid who did a dumb thing for what he thought was a good reason. I dont think he ever intended the big one and is probably somewhat remorseful for the consequences of the other 10 he pled guilty to.<quoted text>
Not true. MANSLAUGHTER is not MURDER and the difference between the 2 is what differentiates "the big one" from "the lesser one". It is the same in Manning's case.
But just between you and me, one guy taking with another guy ..... you don't really think Manning's intent was "the big one" do you?
But I will let the Judge decide.
