    Mine feels tainted now

    Does "Mine feels tainted now" mean "my feelings are being tainted now"?


    "Mine" here means "I" or "my feelings"?

    --------------------
    I shook the alleged killer's filthy hand 28 days ago. Mine feels tainted now, as though I somehow sanctioned his reported act, though I was only trying to get some information out of him.
