Here's the thing. Libertarians tend to be genuinely autistic. I don't mean it like an insult. I mean they are GENUINELY autistic to some degree.

These types of people grow up getting good grades but are totally friendless and anti-social and then project outward this strange mentality of hyper-individualism, wild west style. As a result, they carry this weird sense of naivety mixed with unrealistic idealism with them. So of course they see this guy as a hero and not a scumbag.

This guy was obviously a piece of shit.

The first part of your post somewhat negates the second. Not much any lawyer can do, when their client basically hands the feds an extremely expansive personal written confession.
