I will vote for mercy. The defendant deserves life imprisonment for what he has done, of that there is no doubt, however execution will be damaging, not only to the man's son but also to the morale of the German people. I fear this may only inflame the situation further. I also find my fellow members of the Reichstag's opinion that somehow all German soldiers are pure and dedicated to our glroious republic and committed no atrocities to be extremely foolish. There is no doubt that these Militant Socialists did as well, yet they will be the ones punished, and not the soldiers.
