    Post German Man Charged with Teaching Dog Hitler Salute

    German man charged with teaching dog Hitler salute


    A German man is to appear in court charged with teaching his dog to give the Hitler salute.

    The black sheepdog-mix, named Adolf, has been taught to lift his right front paw up straight in the salute on command.

    Police were called to the scene in Berlin when Roland T, 54, shouted at passers-by last year.

    When a patrol arrived, he allegedly showed them the trick he had taught his dog, gave the salute along with Adolf, and shouted: "Sieg Heil."

    Now he has been charged with using symbols of unconstitutional organisations. If found guilty, he faces up to three years in prison.

    Adolf will probably be brought to a pet shelter, the Berliner Kurier reports.

    Carola Ruff, of the local animal protection organisation, says the dog shouldn't be judged for what its owner taught it.

    "It makes me sick to think someone's using his dog as an instrument of his deranged brain," she told the paper.

    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    That sort of intolerance cannot be tolerated, from man or beast. They both must be gassed.

    The dog should be executed as example for the rest of canine community, after he regrets his horrible crimes against both canine and mankind

    I think they're letting the dog off easy because it is racially mixed.

    hah, you'd almost get the impression that they were considering arresting the dog aswell.

    Wink Careful what tricks you teach your dog

    Hitler-Saluting Dog Seeks New Owner

    By David Gordon Smith in Berlin

    He was just following orders: Adolf the dog was trained to give the Hitler salute by his pensioner owner. The obedient German shepherd crossbreed is looking for a new home now that his owner is going to jail.

    [...] His owner, identified only as Roland T., taught the dog to perform the Hitler salute on command.

    Adolf and his owner became famous in 2003 after Roland T. got his dog to perform his party trick in front of police. The gesture landed the Berlin pensioner in court, charged with displaying symbols of a banned organization. The use of Nazi symbols, slogans or gestures is banned in Germany.

    Now Roland T. is off to jail. He is reporting to a Berlin prison Wednesday to serve a five-month sentence for displaying Nazi symbols.

    Its so absurd to arrest a pensioner for that.
    A* I’m a dreadful reactionary, Mrs. Helena. I don’t like this progress one bit.
    H* Like Nana.
    A* Yes, like Nana. Does Nana have a prayer book?
    H* A big fat one.
    A* And are there prayers in it for various occurrences in life? Against storms? Against illness?
    H* Against temptation, against floods -
    A* But not against progress, I suppose?
    H* > I think not.
    A* That’s a shame.
