Richard Hillman does indeed deserve this award.

I think that he is over-criticized and not really understood. His wife deserved what she got, and in any event it was a spur of the moment thing. He was basically an OK guy, for whom a few things went horribly wrong.

I grant you that Alan Bradley was a really nasty piece of work. However Jez Quigley, although not the nicest of men, was simply protecting his turf. Yes he dealt drugs which is a pretty 'off' business, but it was still his business and he had to protect it by making sure his customers paid and that competitors were kept off his patch. He was not bad like Alan, he simply ran his business.

I seriously doubt Richard's wife deserved what she got. I agree it was an impulse but what Patricia had done was uncover some of his schemes, or would have blown his cover. That's not deserving of having her head stoved in with a shovel and buried under a foundation. Ok, Richard might have convinced himself that he had to do it but that's beside the point and after the fact.
