Confession of Frankfurt-Airport shooter

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The court doesn't accept his confession?
    So they say "nope we don't believe you did it, off you go home"?

    Do the German courts have this 50% off if you confess like the UK then?

    Minimum 15 years (or 10 if he was under 21 when he did it) before parole hearing. No maximum.
  3. He apologized for his actions, saying he had been shown a film of a 14 year old muslim girl been gang raped by US soldiers, that he now knows was fictional.

  4. So what difference does a confession make?

    Show remorse etc and gets a couple of years taken off the top end perhaps?
  5. Rest in peace the 2 US soldiers killed, and sympathies to those injuried.

    Thank **** the gunmans gun jammed.

    I will ask you to picture this though:

    We have been over run and occuppied by the russian hordes (sorry kgb) - you hear of a 14 year old girl been gang raped by russian soldiers.

    She and her family, 3 generations, are then murdered by the russian soldiers to hide their crime.

    You have access to a gun and know where russian soldiers congregate.

    Would you?
  6. Remorse is allways well received in German Courts, even if it does not result in a significant reduction of the sentence, it is the start of the rehabilitation process and will likely result in an early release where possible. However as already posted, murder gets a minimum of 15 years, most prisoners will be released on parole after 15, only the severe cases will do more. Life per se does not exist as the German Supreme Court ruled some years ago that all prisoners must have hope of being released at some stage.
  7. He still killed though didn't he? they aren't going to spring back to life are they?

    Kill the cnut. Slowly and painfully.
  8. And people are against rendition? Should have lifted him to the USA.

    That was the other side of the same airport...
  10. Why?

    The crime took place on German soil, by a German subject (of some description). Do you think the Germans are incapable of judging this and acting correctly?

    Similar points have been raised against teh Italians by the Yanks about the Amanda Knox case. A Yank, killing Brit on Italian soil.
  11. This is why I don't share my porn.
