Depends on what a jury says.   :wink:

The system certainly is guilty of letting him out on the street in the first place.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Guilty has different meaning today.  He should be exterminated regardless of what a jury decides.

nope.  Has the same meaning it has always had.

And you base this on what?  He's certainly a good argument for the death penalty if he is found guilty.
