Iron will does not equal moral fiber, lad.
Why the hell would ANYONE in universe want to give a "he was at least a pretty cool guy" moment of introspection/respect to the man who's murdered so many women and children that he singlehandedly increased the town's crime statistics by several hundred percent.
The guy who killed a nice ghost girl that they personally got to know. The guy who killed that annoying kid that they got to know. The guy who murdered a man who had a family and literally wearing his skin.
The man who would turn back time itself to try to escape capture for his many crimes. The man who admitted to popping a fucking boner over Mona Lisa's hands.
Sorry m8 but only a complete fucking psychopath would say anything other than "man, thank GOD that freak is dead" either in OR out of universe.
