Former Nazi camp guard charged 29,000 times


news.yahoo.com

BERLIN – German prosecutors said Wednesday they have charged retired Ohio auto worker John Demjanjuk with more than 29,000 counts of accessory to murder for his time as a guard at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp, and will seek his extradition from the U.S.

From what I read of this article, it seems that the case against this man is very weak. He has already been in custody for seven years before they released him due to lack of evidence.

I am all for taking ex Nazi's to task, but my main complaint is why many Nazi's who were responsible for much more death than a prison guard (like the scientists who and phsycologists who tortured and maimed many Jews and German dissidents) not only got off scott free, but were put to work here in the U.S. Many of the best Nazi generals and squad commanders were put to work training death squads in South America under "Operation Paperclip".

Why are these organizations not calling for justice on these wretched excuses for human beings. Is this case really about justice? Your thoughts.

What is the point now? The guard is now about 80 years old

You ask what is the point in bringing him to trial now that he's 80 years old? May I suggest that his age has nothing to do with it. If this person is indeed guilty of what he has been accused of, then in my opinion he should most certainly be tried. Just because his crimes occured so many years ago does lessen the severity of them. And concerning the other post, just because there were even greater monsters who performed even greater crimes against humanity, this does not make this person less of a monster.

You are missing the point, They should be just as adamant that other criminals who were swept under the rug should also see justice metered out. You will never see these people called out, and most people do not know that they were ever spirited away to safety to continue their monstrous work at Edgewood, and other places. This is what led to all of the MKULTRA and other freaky programs carried out on civilians and soldiers. These people not only have the blood of WW II on their hands, but also the victims of their "research" here in the states.

Well, if he is guilty, he should still pay. The case seems weak the way it is portrayed in the story though.

Agreed and let's not forget that the WWII German military (even the SS which ran the concentration camps among many other tasks including direct combat operations) was CONSCRIPT force ... I highly doubt he had a say in what his assignment was.
