Oh okay.



Since he's 94, it would probably be too much trouble and money to do something about it... he's bound to die soon anyway.

Usually Germany takes them back and puts them on trial, despite if they have had no say in what happened, and charges them. I think it depends on what Germany plans on doing. If they are going to leave him alone, he should be able to live the rest of his life with his family, IMO.

I read more into it once I got a chance. I guess he was a commander so they want to charge him because commanders are prosecuted regardless of proof of their actions, but from what I read, he had a lot of involvement.

I read a lot and he did some indescribably awful things. But he was also a young, brainwashed person.



I can see both ways.

The USA has no say in anything, that's why I said if Germany wants him back then they should have him. But if they choose not to try him for whatever reason, then he should be left alone. Germany almost ALWAYS takes them back and if they don't, that is saying something imo.

I didn't say they did. The question was not whether or not he should be deported, I said in the OP if that's the law then so be it. My question was whether or not people thought he deserved all the hatred and "he deserves to die" comments and for the news to publish his name, home address, and pictures of his house over half a century later.

Yeah that's what I mean, he was young and brainwashed. Probably scared too. A lot of Hitler's followers did what they did out of fear.



And the fact that he stayed out of trouble all these years tells me he probably isn't a horrible person.
