I know Rick wouldn't convict based on the evidence we've got so far.  
Doesn't mean we don't both think it's likely that Hans killed Nina,  
but the armchair gut instinct is very different than having to pass  
judgment on someone's life.

I can sit on a jury and think a guy's guilty as sin, but if the  
prosecution hasn't proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt, I'm not  
going to vote to convict.
