That says a lot about you (saying you do not wish to see him face the death penalty) considering the crimes he is being accused of. I assume you would feel the same way if convicted/found guilty?
I hope you see justice for your family!
doesn''t suprise me,i'd expect that from you.
so your fine with someone getting away with a massacre if found competent. what about all the lives that he took, or ordered to be taken? they didn't get the chance to live the rest of their lives. where's the justice in that?
The German investigation was shelved after it received “comprehensive medical documentation” from doctors at the geriatric hospital in the US where Karkoc was being treated for Alzheimer’s disease that led them to conclude he was not fit for trial.
No, I'm not ok with someone getting away with their crimes, but if you read the source it states that he was found to be unfit.
depending on his mental state and if he does have Alzheimer’s. he wouldn't be able to contribute to his own defense and not understand what was taking place. he wouldn't even understand the punishment if found guilty.
now if sane and fully aware and remembers, hang his ass.
I say leave him be and let him live out the rest of his life.

The thing with that through is if our respective societies were to go around incarcerating 98 year olds we would be living under a regime just as bad as any Nazi Germany.
We beat them, lets not become them.
Fact is justice in this world has a sell buy date.
That being said if there is any justice in the next verse i imagine he will get his comeuppance or karma will bite him in the arse.
and apparently you didn't read my post or comprehend what i said. here i'll post it again.
so basically i said, if he had Alzheimer’s leave him alone, if found competent, hang him. your reply addressed nothing even related to that. all you said was, your words
so basicly give him a pass, and let him die of old age unpunished if found competent or not.
The guy is 98, if they wanted him for any crimes he may or may not have committed 80 odd years ago they should have found and prosecuted him while he was still able to stand trial.
