I could see that. I still don't think it made sense to kill the kid.

I don't see a trial or him going to prison. Dismissed quietly is my guess.

Well we don't know and the only assumption we can make is that he went to jail given how it went down.

I don't really think it was ridiculous. Thats just me though.

I totally disagree with the characters becoming unsympathetic. I thought Shane and his wife were unsympathetic until about the end when they died and then Claudette read his letter.

And I did feel sympathetic towards Mackey. He deserved everything he got and probably more, but I still felt for him, which is part of what made this so great to me. Dude was dirty as shit but in many ways he was still very likeable and someone you could relate to so it was hard not to be sympathetic toward him.
