      Some people think nooses are noses because they spell looses when they mean loses.

  • Martin B

    You know who else belongs on the gallows? Prosecutors who investigate patriots instead of jihadis, that’s who.

    • WalterBannon

      you are too kind, I would like to see them boiled in oil

      • Xavier

        Surely we can compromise, gentlemen. Half shall be boiled then hung, and half shall be hung then boiled. Equitable?

          Can we use trans fats or PCBs?
          I’d hate to waste good lard or bacon grease.
          And canola has a very low smoke point.

            Do as you will.
            Personally, I wouldn’t feed ’em to a dog.

    A gallows is a perfectly legitimate prop to use at a political protest. When was the last time someone was charged with “threatening to commit a crime’ for burning a politician in effigy? This threat to prosecute smacks of political motivation.

      It’s the EU Way. Democracy has nothing to do with it.

        They never really change do they? They just don a different authoritarian persona.

    German authorities will crack down on people brandishing unpleasant props, but will do absolutely nothing to crack down on the jihadists.

    Cowards always take the path of least resistance.
