Man trains dog to perform Nazi salute

BERLIN -- A man who trained his German shepherd to raise a paw in imitation of the Nazi salute won't be prosecuted for the unusual trick, although he faces other charges, including allegedly shouting "Heil Hitler!" just before the dog's feat, judicial authorities said Wednesday.

Displaying Nazi symbols in public is a crime in Germany.

Police stopped the 54-year-old man, identified only as Roland T., in March after he was heard shouting the Nazi slogan.

As the officers watched, he called a command -- "Do the salute" -- to his dog, named Adolf, and the German shepherd mongrel raised its right paw, the Bild newspaper reported.

Thanks, D.

That's really funny in a stupid kind of way.

Displaying nazi symbols in the US would subject you to the "right kind" of hate speech, but it's perfectly legal to do so.

It is a weird world we live in.

There are very valid reasons for not displaying nazi symbols in Germany, some people think.

It is their way of trying to move on and show that anything associated with that regime is wrong.

Don't believe anything the "BILD ZEITUNG" reports.
It is like quoting from the National Enquirer.

It's more like they're trying to forget it more than anything, imho. Krauts have a very hard time discussing the topic. Funny that they have laws against free speech because they don't want to be like the Nazis. Bunch of [:o)]s.

I wonder why?


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
