I certainly wasn't there so I don't allow myself to have much of an opinion, if any at all. But that's my personal observation.
The legal proceedings are a political travesty. The machine gun felony charge is ridiculous. But the other charges are spot on.

Therein lies the crux.

It's not them getting prosecuted and convicted for their actions that I have a problem with (I support it) but that our legal system is being bent in all sorts of directions to do so (which I strongly disagree with).
