Charles, knowing Eric wasn't listening to him and that he'd kill him most likely, could've given Shaw a fighting chance in the sub if had just released him. Charles is as guilty of Shaw's death as Eric really.
But then Shaw would probably have released all the stored up nuclear energy and Xavier couldn't risk that. Of course it makes me wonder what was Xavier's plan for dealing with Shaw? Kiss him so that he would forget that he is a mutant?
