This more a discussion if free will exists, and there's no proof for free will.
A strictly scientific criterion would be that an assertion, where no evidence would disprove it, asserts nothing.

However, if people act as if there is free will, claim to perceive it, act on it, observe it, that is a reality.

I don't believe Giant experiences any "guilt;" his funeral "apology" exists in a complex cultural context of S.E. Asian Theravadin Buddhism interlaced with lots of magical/animist left-overs, and strong top-notes of fatalism.

That said: I have seen dogs acting/looking as if they are aware they did something "wrong" when discovered tearing up something: is that more than just stimulus-response to learning punishment follows certain actions ?
