Mental note to self: If the need ever arises, choose your own bodyguards rather than having them appointed.

I'm curious what the public's final reaction to this will be:

A) Martyrdom for victim/Counter-productive - "His own guard murdered him for what? We need to get rid of that blasphemy law!"

OR

B) Martyrdom for guard - "He did his moral duty, and all charges against him should be dropped."

Much as I would hope for A, I fear it will probably be B...
