Thus he is totally aware of All the implications of any confession of manslaughter. But he confesses anyway Here and now. Sort of. He says he has Quot stabbed and shot or otherwise liquidated Many people perhaps 300 or More. He adds he has done away with them individually acting Only on impulse and in Large groups. He has seen the victims Burn up blow apart or fall from a Hundred Small wounds. He has heard them beg scream or just moan in bewilderment As they die. Babies old men everyone.
