Man rips head from Hitler wax figure
July 5, 2008 3:54pm CST
I was reading an article online where they made a wax figure of Hitler and on the opening day less than 10 minutes in a german broke through security and tore the head off. I personally don't think Hitler deserves a place in the wax museum. Yes the man was a big part of history and is in our books and Germany will be forever reminded of their past. I don't think this man should be charged on this. Yes I know no one has a right to destroy but a monster like hitler doesn't deserve such a place in a museum with rock stars and other famous people. If they think they need to have him in a museum they should have a section for Monster through out history and toss him in there. What do you think?

I say he should be charged. He went into a place and wantonly destroyed someone else's property. He had no right and just as if he had gone and destroyed any of the other wax works there he should get some jail time, unless Madame Tussauds is gracious enough to drop the charges.

Him being a monster, evil and all that is well and good and i agree that he commited many unforgivable crimes. But the thing is that IS the past. The crimes against humanity he commited no matter how bad they may be were in the past. The present, however is education. He is indeed an important part of history. Keeping all that aside, the man couldve used any other way to protest, damaging the property of the mueseumis not a solution. He should be put to trial.

Well trail maybe. Pay damages yes. Never know he may have had family that was killed back then. But agree there are other ways to protest. If he has a history of destroying things that are not his then lock him up but if it was an emotional over ride due to the history of his family maybe. But I will agree damaging others property wasn't the answer.
