It's strange that someone would have an opinion, one way or the other, when they haven't heard the arguments, nor seen the evidence presented at this trial. All we saw or heard was sensationalized sound bits from the media. Hardly enough to make an informed decision. Most likely those that voted in this poll had aleady made up their minds, long before the actual trial.

He had no need to be there, he came armed, he killed 2 people, injured 1, and he has a violent past. What compelling reason is there to not convict?

His defense was self defense, and the prosecution didn't convince the jury that it wasn't. You don't need a compelling reason not to convict. That's not how our legal system works. You have to convict based on proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of the charges. Media legal analysts covering the trial said that the prosecution didn't do that.
