I like to keep up with current events. Today it was a tough choice between the article about the German Cannibal Killer below or one on AOL News entitled: Michelle Obama Shows Off in Vibrant Pantsuit……..That kind of threw me for a loop. This is news? Where is Walter Cronkite when we need him….desperately.
Anyway, perhaps because of my personal interest in cannibals or perhaps because of my fondness for southern barbecue (especially when I am trying to diet), I chose the former. Here are my random insights and reactions:
1) Jesus, the Germans really DO lack a sense of humor. 2) What is with Germans and homicidal killer-kidnapper-cannibals? Dont they have TakeOut over there?? 3) The better question is what to feed this guy in prison? If he behaves in jail, he could choose off the Jeffrey Dahmer “Meat and Three” (assorted limbs) Menu. If he does not, and continues to behave badly, I would suggest organic veggies only…….That should really get to him……. 4) I’m surprised his lawyer didnt just claim he has ADHD and repressed memories of being molested..by someone. Arent the Europeans aware of this mental health scourge? I myself am much less likely to eat human flesh after taking my stimulant medicine. Well, for at least 8 hours or so…. Arrgh!!
GERMAN CANNIBAL KILLER SENTENCED TO LIFE
BERLIN — A 26-year-old German man dubbed the “cannibal killer” after he confessed to eating the flesh and drinking the blood of one of his teenage victims has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
Jan O., whose last name was withheld in accordance with German privacy laws, was convicted in Goettingen state court of two counts of capital murder Monday for the November slayings of a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy.
During the trial the defendant confessed to licking blood from a wound of the girl and biting flesh from her neck. He killed the boy five days later.
DAPD news agency reports Presiding Judge Ralf Guenther says the murders showed an “almost unimaginable dimension of criminality.” An appeal for the defense is pending.
