If you were John Adams, and you had to write a case to defend the British's actions in the Boston Massacre, what would you say?

Those Anarchists were rebelling. Shooting them was justified.

In all seriousness, you can probably find the case transcripts online.

Not a massacre at all. It was self defense. The colonists were throwing wood and attacking the soldiers. If a huge mob surrounded you and started throwing all kinds of stuff at you, how would you react?

I would call my cousin a facking lunatic and point out that it was in self defense.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I'd get a bunch of my friends to complain to the judge and hope he drops the charges.

And the shooting was an accident. A snowball knocked a soldier out, he dropped his gun and it went off. This confused the soldiers so they also fired.

1) self defense regardless
2) even if you dislike the king, the rebels are still subjects of the crown
3) the shooting was accidental too, and happened because of an American action.
