Judge Files Complaint Against German PM Over Comment that She was 'Glad' bin Laden Dead

As HotAir's headline says-- 'It's come to this'. Truly it also shows the moral idiocy of many in Europe and the direction that many on the Left in this country want the United States to take.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, of the center-right Christian Democratic Party, said after the death of Osama bin Laden Sunday that she was happy that he was dead.

Now some are taking exception, including a judge, who is filing a legal complaint against her.
"I am a law-abiding citizen and as a judge, sworn to justice and law," the 54-year-old told the paper, adding that Merkel's words were "tacky and undignified."

In his two-page document, Uthmann, a judge for 21 years, cites section 140 of the German Criminal Code, which forbids the "rewarding and approving" of crimes. In this case, Merkel endorsed a "homicide," Uthmann claimed. The violation is punishable by up to three years' imprisonment or a fine.

"For the daughter of a Christian pastor, the comment is astonishing and at odds with the values of human dignity, charity and the rule of law," Uthmann told the newspaper.

Now the Germans are holding up human rights? For bin Laden?

Fucking idiots.

  1. I wouldn't race to call them 'fucking idiots' but this type of reactionary response doesn't necessarily elevate Merkel. It only makes her look like the terrorists who celebrate violent death.
    The Australian prime minister, probably copying Merkel, voiced similar sentiments.
    It's rather hypocritical for democratic countries like the US to say that death is not the answer when they commission a death squad to penetrate countries that do not fall under their jurisdiction to do their bidding. This disturbs me. No, I'm not a fan of fundamentalist Islamists. I detest them. I find that their beliefs are medieval and that they should live in Shariah countries rather than contaminate democratic countries with their backward views, but allowing countries like the USA to use enter countries with their commando squads is not a good precedent.
    Not only this, why is it that every other war criminal is never killed but held to account under the Geneva Convention? But for Osama, even though they knew he was unarmed, they killed him? To me, this raises many questions that have not been answered satisfactorily by the United States.
