Third most-wanted Nazi suspect charged in Germany - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100728/ap_on_re_eu/eu_germany_nazi_suspect - broken link)

For christ's sake leave them alone! What did you expect the man to do? Rot in a prison camp for the remainder of the war and possibly die? War sucks but we don't make it a criminal act to do so. I can't wait for the U.S to lose a war and the Generals and the President get thrown in prison for crimes.

Yeah, okay.



I guess the 10 Jews he's accused of shooting probably deserved it

See, the trouble is, it is a crime to take ordinary citizens and kill them in actions that are in no way related to war. The defendant probably wasn't going to kill anyone else, but it's just bad policy to let a known murderer go unpunished. It's best to send an undeniable message concerning such deeds.

I say kill him in the manner of the 430,000 Jews he's charged with killing if convicted. But absolutely, if the case can be proven he was a leading but low ranking member of the Nazi party, not just a soldier then he should absolutely be charged and tried.

I think you need to learn the difference between war and non provoked acts of "Genocide".

He wasn't in the nazi party dude. He was captured by the Germans and given a choice work as a guard or go to prison camp. The Russians and Germans didn't exactly like each other so he would not have lasted in prison. He is 88 years old the bastards need to back off and leave him alone. What comes around goes around they best remember that.

Too bad his innocent victims never reached 88 years of age.

Kunz was named the No. 3 suspect in April by the Simon Wiesenthal Center. He ranked fairly low in the Nazi hierarchy, but he was among the most-wanted suspects because of the large number of Jews he is accused of helping to kill.

In addition to those charges, he is accused of fatally shooting 10 Jews in two other incidents related to unspecified "personal excesses," prosecutor Christoph Goeke told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Wow, just wow. First off, the US has lost wars. You should check your facts. Second, the systematic Genocide of killing 5-6 million Jews (yes, I know: Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah Witnesses, et al) IS NOT warfare. It is a crime. Not one single member of the German Army was tried for waging war. They were tried for going outside of recognized rules of war. Personally, I don't care if he is 88 or 188. He should be tried, convicted, and hung. I'll pay for the rope...

should we also allow other war criminals to get away without punishment? how about someone who is lets say a hostage in a bank robbery, and he is told by the hostage takers that if he kills that black guy, or that jew in the corner, he wont get killed? do we let him go because he was forced to kill?
