There’s probably less than a 2% chance that what his defense lawyers say is accurate bc:
- defense lawyers
- very small % of non-binary
- w/out non-binary designation he fits the profile of the great majority of mass murderers
- the infinitesimal chance of non-binary mass murderer that did not generate a metric ton of social media footprint and coverage

Let's keep this in mind the next time the news identifies someone as being Muslim
Has anyone read the note he left?I'm not a legal mind who could judge any merit or problem with the argument. I expect there is some precedent which should apply. Or after this we'll have a precedent.
