We know that he was partially responsible for the deaths of James and Lily. IMO, his bad choice was joining the DE and after working for them for less than a handful of years he then worked for 17 years or so on the opposite side. IMO, in that time he learned and improved a lot.

Shouldn't that count for more, especially since all we really know of his work as a DE was that he was a glorified eavesdropper? IMO, he made mistakes, but his mistakes don't negate all the stuff he did after that. And yeah, I know he was a mean teacher, but I don't believe he wanted bad things for his students or others.

I'm sorry, but I don't mean to insult anyone. I'm trying to talk about a fictional character and expressing my opinion of him. It happens to not agree with yours, but I don't think voicing my opinion that I think Severus Snape was at his core a good if flawed man should be taken as an insult towards real life people. If one finds that opinion insulting then that is not my problem. I don't mean it as a personal insult towards good people in the world.
Why do the good deeds outweigh the bad ones?
