All right, you laid out the case.
But what do you say about the procedures and rules of evidence that are followed in a criminal court of law to convict a person of 1st degree murder, rather than manslaughter, for instance?
The difference between murder and manslaughter is difference of intent, and to determine which is which, one must prove intent.
Is that only conjecture, too?
The evidentiary requirement in u.s. courts is proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That would allow for conjecture which meets that legal standard.
Why is it that you are so intent on asserting that you can completely know the state of Hubbard's mind? Frankly I suspect the truth is that, more realistically and like the rest of us, most days you have doubts about your own.
