im surprised there are still some of these dudes around. i guess i shouldnt be, there will probably be another case in a couple of decades of some 134 year old former nazi fighting deportation or something
Why are we talking about Japan in a thread about a Nazi being caught?
As for what Israel will do when all Nazi's are gone, they will move on to other things. It isn't exactly the top thing they have going, its just the fact that the word "Nazi" is such a high profile word in the media that we see this pop up at all.
Why is this even a thing? They want to punish him solely on the fact that he was in Hitler's army when they can't even prove if he ever actually killed anyone. That's stupid. I don't understand how anybody could possibly be for this. If he had proven murders on his hands, it would be another story, but as far as this article says, he doesn't.Roe took exception to the portrayal of Geiser as a war criminal. Geiser says he was forced to join the SS in 1942, and that he never killed anyone
Not much you can do about that as a 17 year old lad.
That Justice Department lawyer is nuts thinking he had a choice, serve at a camp or be slaughtered in Russia or get executed for desertion .... yeah great choices right there.
he was forced to serve and never actually killed anybody and lol to all the people saying he should have rebelled and tried to liberate the camp (and die in the process), his life isn't worth anything or what? Innocent man imo.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
He might be lying, heck he most probably is lying. SS is not a typical soldier, SS were those freaks who actually believed in all that crap Hitler said, not only did they belive they were passionate about it. And sorry there is always a choice, ALWAYS. If they put a gun in your hand and tell you to kill innocent people you can always say NO, ofcourse it most likely will end up with your own death but it's a choice. Saying his innocent is justifying murder as being part of SS is nothing about innocence.
He's 88 years old. He was a camp guard collectively guilty of blood geysers and electrode sweeping machines. Like the VISA questionnaire on the airplane says, every single last one. Happens.

Invading Japan: Millions dead.
Accepting the surrender while allowing them to keep their emperor: 0 dead.
Edit: And I know the answer, I'm just curious if you have the balls to say it or not.
