    wouldn't that be the same as the death penalty

    It doesn't matter. It'll hurt his family. It'll make some people-- maybe a lot of people-- feel better. It won't change what happened. It won't do a thing to stop it from happening again, and it might even inspire someone else to take up the cause.

    Probably better to try him and hang him. Ex post facto or not, the law says that former Nazis are to be tried and convicted for their actions-- and the law will not be changed until there are no more Nazis left to hunt.

    He was competent to be a war criminal. So his competency now should have no bearing on him facing trial.

    I also think that the Jews need to let go.
    Why should anyone let this go, the man is a war criminal. These monsters murdered friends ,relatives, children and other loved ones of the survivors of the Holocaust, the jews were not the only victims of the Nazis. If this was a case involving property vandalism then you would have a point that we should let this go.

    I think it's time for them to move on, as a people. Yes, there are those who escaped justice in this life. It's good to accept that.
    Are you arguing that war crimes should have a statue of limitations or that if you go into hiding for a little while then you should be able to weasel out of justice? Tookie Williams and his rat lawyers tries to argue that he was too old to face the death penalty even though it was him and his rat lawyers that tried to weasel out of his punishment for 26 years.



    Jesus told us to forgive others. This was because it's something that ultimately benefits us. I think the Nazi hunters need to let go. This man is a very old man and will soon be dead.
    Are you saying we should release all the inmates from prison,let people off of parole, remove remove sex offender's names including child molester's names from sex offender registries, clear all fines that anyone may have to pay, clear all warrants and let people off early from community service? The whole Jesus forgives doesn't just apply to scumbags who weaseled out of justice for the past 60 plus years.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The article makes it sound like there's some doubt about whether he committed any crimes of his own free will or not. He and the people who were in the camp both deserve for there to be a trial to determine his guilt or innocence.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Try him and if the evidence is strong enough to convict him, let him serve the appropriate sentence. Age has nothing to do with the law. However, I also agree that the Jews need to get the hell over it and stop using the Holocaust as a tantrum to get their own way, just like blacks need to stop using slavery for the same thing. It's over, move on.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Are you trying to surprise anybody here by posting the opinions of holocaust deniers? Because it's getting old. I mean how many times can you post the opinions of others and then try to distance yourself from them? Is that what you're going to do now? Please tell me it isn't. Because THAT I wouldn't see coming.

    There is no statute of limitations on war crimes. He should be tried, and if found guilty, should receive the standard sentence. He should be shown as much mercy under the law as he showed his victims.
