Well don’t ask me. That’s just how the system works here.
Germany’s “last major Holocaust trial” had to end this way, didn’t it? A German court found John Demjanjuk guilty of a abetting the killing of 27,900 people but then set him free despite the, uh, five year sentence.
Well he did have to sit through an eighteen month trial, you know.
The trial, he said, amounted to “torture.”
