He wants to rememberd for who he is and why he killed( he will try to make an historical statement rather than defend his actions as it is evident from his intention of not presenting evidences or witnesses. Although sometimes, some of the killers tend to have remorse before their death sentence, in this case, they still tend to make Historical comments they want to be remebered for, but this time, the comments are sometimes lased with regrets and pleading.
