What should they do?

Story today in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on an 85-year old man who is an accused Nazi guard. He came to the U.S. in 1955 and hid that he was in the Nazi army.

What should the U.S. do with him? Does deporting him and his wife change anything? I would rather that you find out as much information from him as possible and see if we can learn anything we didn't know before he forgets all of it.

"Does deporting him and his wife change anything?"

Since when is that criteria for meting out justice?

I agree with your idea of wringing information out of him, then at least he'll have served some purpose.

But if he lied to get into this country & if he played some part in war crimes he should be punished.

To punish in this instance is to reaffirm the idea that no matter how much time has passed war criminals cannot and should not escape justice.

He shouldn't escape justice - all I am saying is that at this point of his life - WHAT is justice and what will benefit society besides deportation.
