This Is the Understatement of the Week


One would think that when you are a convicted cannibal, you would get sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty. Well, not in Germany. In the understatement of the week the German Court said:

ordered a cannibal to be retried Friday, saying his manslaughter conviction for killing and eating a willing victim was too lenient.

Meiwes admitted to killing a Berlin computer specialist, Bernd-Juergen B, he met via the Internet, but was spared a murder conviction as the victim had asked to be eaten in a startling case of sexual fetishism.

Ah, we won’t even touch that one.
