So this former Nazi guard has made it to the ripe old age of 89 here in the states. Enjoyed the privileges of citizenship until the year 2002 even. Now he's being deported back to Germany to stand trial on 29,000 counts of acting as accessory to murder while he was a guard at the Sobibor death camp in Poland. We all know that most of the people in these camps suffered untold horrors at the hands of their captors. Torture beyond what most of us can imagine.
Here's the crazy part. He says that forcing him to travel back to Germany at the frail age of 89 would be, and I quote, "severe physical and mental pain that clearly amount to torture under any reasonable definition of the term." I'm so sorry that it would be torture for you. You're right crazy old man. You DO deserve better than those you stole from, beat, starved, and froze to death. That's just to name the least of what they had to suffer. You're life is worth so much more than those 29,000 people that did nothing to deserve what they received. You don't need to face the consequences of you're actions just because you're old.
How crazy can people be to support him not being extradited? He has an attorney defending his right to stay in the states, mind you his citizenship has been revoked. His family is trying to stop the extradition. There was even a temporary stop granted by a judge, he revoked that 3 days later. I'm sure it took him so long because it was the weekend.
Why is it that people think they don't have to pay for their crimes just because they happened decades ago? Or because they're old and they don't have a lot of time left on this earth? I just don't understand people.
