Joerg Kretschmer, the father of Albertville-Realschule gunman Tim Kretschmer, was convicted of manslaughter for not properly securing the gun that his son used to kill 15 people and himself.
It may sound like justice was served but it wasn’t as the elder Kretschmer received a 21 month suspended sentence. That means that he won’t even see the inside of a German prison cell. To make matters worse Kretschmer’s attorney plans on appealing the non-sentence.
So not only did Kretchmer’s father not keep his gun secure but he was also informed about his son’s lack of mental well-being, did nothing about it and not only does he receive no jail time but also has the temerity to try to appeal the sentence while 15 people were killed for no reason? Again, that’s not even close to justice.
