The German Cannibal Saga Ends …

Update I know we have some whacky laws, with whacky sentences, but come on Germany –

CBS News | Cannibal Sentenced To 8 Years: Armin Meiwes, 42, in the closing statement at his trial

(AP) A German who confessed to killing, dismembering and eating another man who allegedly agreed to the arrangement over the Internet was convicted Friday of manslaughter and sentenced to eight and a half years in prison.

A state court ruled that Armin Meiwes, a 42-year-old computer expert, had no "base motives" in the crime – sparing him a murder conviction.

Prosecutors had sought a life sentence, calling Meiwes a "human butcher" who acted simply to "satisfy a sexual impulse."

I don’t believe in the death penalty, but there is life in prison. Kinda like child abuse, it is a line so far out there, once you are able to cross it, you can’t come back. He will not be able to stop now. Good luck in 8 years.
