Yes, Snape killed Dumbledore, but he did so because Dumbledore was going to die anyways. He wore a ring which infected him with a curse, and he would be dead within the year.
Snape was asked to kill Dumbledore, to:
1. Save Dumbledore from a painful death.
2. To gain Voldemort's trust and enter his inner circle of Death Eaters.
Snape was protecting Harry the ENTIRE TIME. He was the good guy.

No, the main reason wasn't any of that. Hardly anyone noticed, but Snape was supposed to end up with the Elder Wand. themoreyouknow.jpg

I don't know why people thumbed you down, what you said is true. Direct quote from text:

"If you planned your death with Snape, you meant him to end up with the Elder Wand, didn't you?"
"I admit that was my intention," said Dumbledore,"but it did not work as I intended, did it?"
"No," said Harry, "That bit didn't work out."

This bit happened when Voldemort used the Killing Curse on Harry in the woods and Harry went to the place in his head, where he talked to Dumbledore.

That is true but..
"If you don't mind dying,' said Snape roughly, 'why not let Draco do it?'
'That boy's soul is not yet so damaged,' said Dumbledore. 'I would not have it ripped apart on my account.'
and...
'You will have to give Voldemort the correct date of Harry's departure from his aunt and uncle's, said Dumbledore. 'Not to do so will raise suspicion, when Voldemort believes you so well-informed. However, you must plant the idea of decoys - that, I think, ought to insure Harry's safety.'
'And Severus, if you are forced to take part in the chase, be sure to play your part convincingly ... I am counting on you to remain in Lord Voldemort's good books as long as possible, or Hogwarts will be left to the mercy of the Carrows ...'
along with saving Dumbledore from a painful death at the hand of another was what Dumbledore's intentions were

Yes, I've read it. I've retained more than you have in my one read, apparently.
I remember Dumbledore saying "you must be the one to kill me."
Snape is the good guy, bro.
Harry named his kid Albus Severus Potter. If Snape killed Dumbledore for the Wand, would he name his kid after him?
He didn't do it for the wand. I'm not sure if he even knew about the elder wand existing.
Not sure if you're trolling or not.

Does common sense not register in your brain? I never said Snape was bad or he killed Dumbledore for his wand, I said that Dumbledore asked Snape to kill him mainly to ensure that Snape will end up with the Elder Wand, ultimately preventing Voldemort from getting it. So don't talk to me like I don't know what the **** I'm talking about, because trust me, I know a ******** about Harry Potter.

You know in Part 2 they made Dumbledore look like such a dick in the flashback part with Snape and Dumbledore discussing their plans. I was like WTF??

It appeared like that in the book too but I believe JKR did that to show that people who may seem good are not always good and people who may seem bad are not always bad. Harry does seem to forgive him though when he speaks to Dumbledore later in the book in his head / to his protrait since Dumbledore explains himself and his intentions more clearly then he did to Snape.

I guess.... but he was just being a realist. Some things just need to be done.
