I think one of the biggest things that freaking pisses me off in this book is how everyone (Cassandra Clare included) are trying to lampshade that Raphael was the one to murder Simon. No one, not even Alec who is supposed to be the one that always has to go by the book has told the authorities about Raphael murdering Simon. Not only that, Raphael hasn’t come to look after Simon and make sure he doesn’t kill any humans. No, Raphael is just there because he’s hoping that Jace will let Simon’s murder go.
And instead of anyone of the Shadowhunters actually enforcing the law, as their duty. No, Jace is just taking a bribe of the demon motorcycle. This is like a cop taking a bribe from a murder suspect to drop the charges of a murder he just committed. Do I even need to tell you how wrong this is?
I mean yes, I still say Simon committed suicide, but Raphael was the one to take his life. And no matter if he rose again as a vampire, Raphael still killed him and no one gives a shit about it. *facepalm*
