Terrorist Gets Early Release To Avoid Her Inconvenience

German authorities released Baader-Meinhof terrorist Brigitte Mohnhaupt two days earlier than expected. They wanted to allow her to rejoin society without having to deal with the horrific experience of talking to the media:

A former Baader Meinhof militant, Brigitte Mohnhaupt, was released from prison yesterday after serving 24 years for nine counts of murder during a wave of anti-establishment terrorist attacks that shook Germany in the 1970s and 80s.

Ms Mohnhaupt, 57, who led the second generation of the Red Army Faction after the deaths of its founding members, Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof, was last month granted early release, in a decision that split Germany.

Wolfgang Deuschl, the head of Ainach prison in Bavaria, southern Germany, said yesterday that she had been freed two days ahead of her scheduled release to avoid the intense media attention which has surrounded her case. "We reached an agreement [on Saturday] that she would be picked up by friends," Mr Deuschl told a German newspaper. She left prison early yesterday morning after cleaning out her cell, he said.

This has to be a joke. They wanted to protect a hardened murderer from getting hassled by reporters? How awful! We wouldn't want to have Mohnhaupt experience that kind of inhumanity!

Besides, what exactly do the Germans expect Mohnhaupt to do? She may disappear long enough to write her autobiography, or perhaps to market the one she probably wrote in prison. Afterwards, she will hit the lecture circuit, talking about the grand old days of revolution, when radical leftists like Mohnhaupt and her friends murdered bankers and abducted law-abiding citizens for fun and profit. She'll want to hold press conferences wherever she goes.

The Germans have to have a holes in their heads for ever letting Mohnhaupt out of prison. This latest concern over the inconvenience of answering for herself to a free press shows what a joke this process was from the start.

"This latest concern over the inconvenience of answering for herself to a free press shows what a joke this process was from the start." She may die laughing? Hitler would have loved such considerations. Weimar did try to control him but lost the plot. Now another plot is lost?

Well, what do we expect? The Germans overall are quite liberal, and the early release of Mohnhaupt is exactly what we ought to expect. Remember: liberals are essentially closet communists and for them the "enemy" is capitalists (i.e. anybody with a job and the ambition to do better). If Mohnhaupt and her odious crew murdered a few capitalist pigs, then that's not such a bad thing, is it?

This sorry episode also underscores the liberal attitude toward law enforcement / criminal justice, which we saw in this country when Tookie was executed several months ago. Liberals hate our society and blame it for the acts of criminals ("He was what society made him!"), and so really have no problem releasing bestial killers back into society.

Now, imagine a liberal US president pardoning bin Laden in a few years...

On a flip side, maybe Germans realise better what kind of a monster the modern MSM machine has become.
And after all it was only e few RICH people, who died.

Actually, most Germans are opposed to releasing terrorists. I don't have a quote that specifically addresses Mohnhaupt, but there is this:

Mohnhaupt, called "Germany's most evil and dangerous woman" by one of the country's mass circulation newspapers, has never given an interview to the media or sought a pardon.


Unlike Mohnhaupt, Klar recently appealed to President Horst Köhler to grant him a pardon. Mr Köhler has yet to make a decision on the case, which has caused controversy because of conflicting reports about Klar's readiness to show remorse. A recent poll showed that 70 per cent of Germans opposed Klar's early release if he does not show regret for his crimes.


But a lot of our judges really do need to have their heads checked. Just look at the recent case where a female judge refused to grant an early divorce because the Koran allows wife betaing, so that a Muslim wife has nothing to complain about violence and death threats. The judge has been pulled off the casee, but there are many more like this.

Non-Western defendants regularily get a 'cultural bonus', for violence and murder supposedly are integral parts of these cultures. The reasoning of those judges is that you can't judge a Muslim as harshly as a local defendant, for Muslims are used to beat or kill their female family members. For example, perpetrators of so-called 'honor killings' often are convicted of manslaughter rather than murder, which carries a lot more lenient punishment.

24 years divided by 9 murders equals 2 & 2/3 years per innocent human life snuffed out.

What a pathetic justice system.

They didn't just murder bankers and German government officials. They killed individual U.S. soldiers, blew up U.S. offices, and attacked numerous U.S. and NATO elements. They also killed a fair number of relatively random people who happened to inadvertantly get too close to their plots.

Ralf Goergens,

Thanks very much for once again giving us some good information about the German people and their attitudes.
