What do you mean by "self-indulgent emotionalism"?
And I agree, I also had the feeling he was starting to see his own selfishness in the matter and he couldn't handle it.
What do you mean when you say
> think he realized that he identified so much
> with the guy that he was seeing the criminal
> as himself and not as someone who had
> shotgunned 4 people in cold blood.
How? Sincerely wanna understand.
