Evil - 2
We tried them, then hung 10 of them on 16 October 1946. They generally ranged in age between 45 - 55, with only a few of them older than that. Until they were brought to justice, they had about 10-12 years of living a high life, leading the massacre of millions, and causing the destruction of their country.
They probably didn't set out to become the bastards they ultimately became, but some people have trouble managing power. Be that as it may, their faces and names are forever inscribed on the roles of the truly evil.
As I mentioned in the last posting, people like this intrigue and puzzle me. I wonder why they became what they became and I also wonder if it is possible to determine anything that could be applied to living people among us. Beats me, but its worth keeping the knowledge of this kind of evil available to teach our young and hopefully enable them to become even more cautious in their daily dealings with others.
