If you really think what you did was right despite the law, you would stop trying to weasel-out and would go to prison like a man.
Weasel out? He told the court plainly exactly what he did and why he did it. Weasels don't do that. They blame others. Like President Obama in his speech last night. There's your weasel.
And if the man of convictions believe the law is unjust, such that he will take action in contravention of it for the cause of justice, why on earth would he be willing to be judged by the unjust law? A sensible man would protest it with vigor, and leave his fate in God's hands.

He is a coward and a weasel claiming this was an act of "defense," and not the clearly calculated act of murder it was, so he can get a severely reduced sentence and save himself from prison.
Your hero is a disgusting wretch who murdered another disgusting wretch, and nothing more.
