Good. This is ridiculous so basically were saying it’s OK to take down anyone that worked as a guard in the Japanese internment camps. Complete stupidity. The man is 100 years old and was only doing his duty.

rsfury98 Is his last name Trump? Are we going to hold The Zoinst regime accountable 70 years from now? Sorry AP, I should comment? The amount of people defending this nazi is crazy 😕 Crimes against humanity in Palestine, and Burma still exist and there's no Trial against the cruelty, and cataclysmic killing of children and older people and everyone who stands against the Israeli occupation in Jerusalem.
How many generations has this guy killed? His family may still have that gene. He was 24 when the war ended. His generation were brainwashed as Hitler Youth. He was not in control of his actions. A 24 year old private following orders is not the same as the 50 year old generals who claimed to be'following orders.'
Hang em' like we did in '45 Should the surviving members of the Hitler Youth be tried for their crimes since they also wore SS uniforms when they fought on the Russian front? NeverAgain

This has to stop (via latimesopinion) opinion Only poor people... opinion Trial? The system would collapse if everyone went to trial. It’s called tolling (not trolling) time. Very effective against those that can’t bail. I have heard fine stories of the extra curricular activities at the tower.
