I feel almost the same. I know he was the bad guy, and to be fair he had the shobbyest legal job one can get but seeing how his family threated him made him look miserable and even sympathetic.
Heck, i still remember a scene from the cartoon where Pete was interviewed on the news and he was so happy he made all his family sit in front of the TV to watch it. His family was really happy and excited too.
then the news come on and naturally the interview comes and naturally the news expose him for the cheater and shady businness man he is. The family goes away disgusted and Pistol just goes
"Mommy, mommy, when will the police come to take dad?"
Like holy fuck I get it, you don't like him but wanting him in jail is just mean. Also they'd be starving. Or did peg have a job? because i don't remember.
sorry for the blog post, here's a couple for your trouble.
