Homosexual Cannibal Admits To Eating Victim

Summary: Reuters reports on December 3, that Armin Meiwes has admitted in a German court that he killed and ate a man he met through the Internet. The Reuters story neglected to mention that Meiwes was a homosexual.

WARNING:You will be reading very disturbing material.

Armin Meiwes searched for a willing victim to cannibalize on the Internet by searching such discussion forums as "Cannibal Café," "Guy Cannibals," and "Torturenet." He finally found a man willing to be killed and eaten. He invited "Bernd-Juergen B." to his apartment, which had been rigged up like a slaughter house. The man allowed Meiwes to cut off his sex organ and eat it. Ten hours later, the victim fell unconscious and Meiwes slaughtered him and cut him up like a side of beef. He filmed the whole event. Meiwes' lawyer is arguing that he be given a lesser sentence under a German law known as "killing on request," which is considered an illegal form of euthanasia. The penalty for this crime is up to five years.

German legal authorities are saying the charge of murder is unlikely to stick because the victim was "consenting" to be killed an eaten. Meiwes received responses from 430 other men who indicated an interest in his proposal.

Vanderbilt Anthropology Professor Beth Conklin has written sympathetically about cannibalism in research she has done on the Wari' tribe that lives in the Amazon. According to Conklin, "We assume that cannibalism is always an aggressive, barbaric and degrading act. But that is a serious over-simplification, one that has kept us from realizing that cannibalism can have positive meanings and motives that are not that far from our own experience," says Conklin.

I wonder if this would fall under Justice Kennedys thesis concerning "transcendent liberty"?

One more example of a country with more laws than are good for it.

Why should this be the States Business?
Any reason besides Liberal do-gooders and big brother-ism?

A newly created minority for the liberals: Cannibals

Watch for 'Cannibal Rights' groups to start popping up.

Shocking that they would put such a redundancy in the headline...

Yeh, cannibalism is positive when the Democrats are eating their own!

Meiwes, "No bones about it, this tastes good."

You all really should be more tolerant and understanding.

Could this be what Hillary Rodham had in mind in her commencement address when she was a student at Wellesley?:

"We're searching for a more immediate, ecstatic and penetrating mode of living."

You forgot the stupidity tag on your comment.

Suppose the victim suffered from depression and with the right medication would never consent to this barbarity?

Your reasoning could lead to the murder of a lot of people who are in a low period of their lives. They should not give up, they should keep fighting their internal and external demons, not give themselves up to one.

So, what's the problem? Just add another item onto the end of the gender list:

gay/lesbian/transgendered/S&M/leather/cannibal.

Simple. Now we can start teaching our public school children the virtues of cannibalism. Easy as pie. Simple as putting a condom on a banana.

Now we need big brother govt. to protect us from any action we might take while possibly depressed?
Do you think we should need a psychiatric certificate of happiness before we can spend money or make or break a relationship too?

Treat people like adults for God's sake.
Allow them to make their own decisions, for good or ill.

Not to worry. After the initial shock, the German people will come to tolerate and accept this rich and diverse cultural practice.

These things take time. The Nazis weren't conditioned to shovel Jews into ovens overnight. Given time, people can be "guided" to accept anything as OK.

Anyone read STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND?



I bet Heinlein could have concocted one heck of a reasonable explanation for this man's actions...and those of his "victim."


(Was there really a victim?)

The interesting 'bits' to this story...the cannibal was a computer engineer type who had an extremely high income, and enjoyed his lifestyle. The dimwit victim...actually talked to the cannabal at the train station...went to the house...talked there some more...felt uncomfortable...went back to the train station with the cannibal...and then suddenly changed his mind there (he was home free...but was too stupid to realize it). The cannibal apparently recorded the whole episode...and the court case is uphill because the victim went along with the entire episode...so murder just isn't a tag you can pin on this episode. And finally....the cannibal has hinted...that there are up to 800 of his buddies in Germany. The cops have investigated this comment and aren't making a comment. They are probably pretty shocked and really don't want to start a cannibal hunt...but if you look at the 200-300 people who come up missing each year in Germany...there might be a couple of active cannibals out there in the shadows. All the more reason to carry a weapon....but the authorities really don't want that to happen.

Scary. This case has horrified me, and it really is upsetting to consider what Western society has become.

In Australia, recently, there was a serial killing case involving a group of men who preyed on others. Cannabilism was involved, as well as torture. (It the South Australian "bodies in the bank" case.) They operated for years, undetected. And one wonders - are there others?

There are freaks on the margins of every society. And the smartest thing a society can do is kill them immediately. There are some things you take no prisoners for.... cannibalism is one of them.
