Potrebbe essere secondo buon senso che i minori di una certa soglia di età non siano ritenuti essere penalmente imputabili. Ma sarebbe anche secondo buon senso considerare il tipo di crimine commesso.

Nei tre casi proposti, in mezzo ai tanti altri, si tratta di omicidio volontario con efferatezza, stupro, associazione per delinquere.

I minorenni sono stati tutti rilasciati, quasi facendo loro le scuse, mentre l’unico maggiorenne è stato condannato a quattro anni. Quattro anni soltanto per un delitto di questo tipo.

E mentre in quattro hanno stuprato la ragazzina ubriaca dopo averla pestata a dovere, uno filmava la scena ad imperitura memoria e dava le direttive come se fosse un regista.

* * * * * * *

Questi fatti si presterebbero ad una discussione approfondita, qui però fuori luogo. Ci si limiterà solo ad alcuni argomenti.

In primo luogo, se è ragionevole non ritenere imputabili penalmente i minori, sarebbe altrettanto ragionevole valutare il tipo di reato commesso. Un omicidio volontario unito allo stupro con simultanea videoregistrazione dell’accaduto è un reato di portata tale da rendere obbligatorio l’internamento in un riformatorio. Questa è l’apoteosi del vanto della trasgressione omicida: è il trionfo della “libertà” intesa come mera possibilità di compire anche delitti efferati, dei quali vantarsi e riceverne encomi.

In secondo luogo, a complemento del primo, ben difficilmente un adolescente si imbarcherebbe in imprese di tal genere se avesse avuto una famiglia che lo avesse seguito con amorosa fermezza. E magari anche con qualkche sano lerfone. Non stupisce che in una Germania ove il concetto di famiglia è stato quasi totalmente annientato, dove l’educazione sessuale fatta a scuola fin da bimbi impuberi è l’esatta negazione del concetto di famiglia, in una Germania di tal fatta prosperino delitti di questa tipologia. Oltre un centinaio dall’inizio dell’anno.

In terzo luogo, ci si pensi bene: «a drunk 14-year-old girl». Una ragazzina di quattordici anni, magari già con forme da donna ma con mente ancora da bimba, se ne stava fuori casa a notte inoltrata e si era ubriacata. Non “tipsy“, bensì “drunk“. Ma dove caspita erano i genitori, sempre che possano essere chiamati così l’insemenzatore e la fattrice che la hanno generata? Quale razza di degrado morale vigeva in quella casa e nella scuola che la ragazza frequentava?

In quarto luogo, lasciare a terra tramortita la vittima in regioni a climi gelidi significa abbandonarla a morte quasi certa per congelamento. Ma è anche indice del sublime disprezzo vero la vita umana: la vittima non era considerata “persona umana”, bensì mero oggetto di un insano divertimento. Si inizia dicendo come l’aborto sia cosa buona e giusta, sacrosanto “diritto precostituito” delle femmine, come se assassinare un feto fosse cosa buona, e si finisce così.

In quinto luogo, non siamo così ottusi da non vedere come fatti del genere siano salutati con gioia selvagia nella casa della vittima: i genitori si costituiranno in tribunale per ottenere un congruo risarcimento pecuniario da parte delle famiglie degli assalitori e, spesso, dalle pubbliche autorità. Ma quanto tempo ci ha messo questa ragazzina a farsi fare il servizietto! Va beh: la prossima volta farà meglio.

* * * * * * *

Concludiamo questo articolo, articolo che mai avremmo voluto scrivere.

Esiste la schiatta dei buonisti, sedicenti amorevoli verso i colpevoli ed incuranti delle vittime, in questa, come tutte le altre situazioni. Esiste la schiatta di quanti considerano onnipotente la libertà, per cui una persona sarebbe anche “libera” di uccidere, stuprare e via quant’altro, come se gli altri non godessero nemmeno del diritto alla vita.

È l’unica eccezione che faremmo: ci spiace che le loro fattrici non li abbiano abortiti.

Nota.

Ma alle vittime chi ci pensa? Chi le protegge?


Deutsche Welle. 2016-10-25. Hamburg teenagers walk free after gang-rape conviction

A group of teens in the northern German city of Hamburg were handed suspended sentences despite video evidence of their crimes. The presiding judge said the perpetrators appeared ‘repentant.’

*

In the wake of the news that a group of teenagers were unlikely to see any real punishment for gang-raping a 14-year-old girl and leaving her for dead, citizens of the German city of Hamburg called for new rules regarding violent crime committed by minors. On Monday, an online petition calling for the teens to see jail time had garnered some 21,000 signatures.

“The sexual self-determination and integrity of a woman must have more weight than any concern for the perpetrators,” [of sexual crimes,] says the petition.

According to an update on the Change.org petition, state prosecutors in Hamburg have said they will explore a way to make sure that the teens are punished despite laws that make it difficult for minors to be prosecuted and sentenced to detention.

However, the authorities have made it clear that they came to this decision on their own, and were not swayed by such petitions, Spiegel Online reported.

Assaulted and left for dead

The case in question relates to an incident that occurred in Hamburg this past February. Four youths sexually assaulted a drunk 14-year-old girl and left her for dead outside in freezing temperatures while a fifth teenager filmed the crime, during which time he shouted out instructions like a film director.

On Thursday, a judge handed down suspended sentences to the underage perpetrators. Only one defendant, who is 21, will see jail time of four years. The relatives of the defendants jumped and shouted with joy in the court as the sentences were read. The state of Hamburg has said it plans to appeal the sentencing.

The judge admitted that “the penalties may seem mild to the public,” but that the teens had all made confessions, appeared repentant and been judged to no longer present a danger to society.

Due to German laws protecting the victims of crimes, little is known about the situation of the victim other than the fact that she managed to survive being left alone outside in the ice-cold conditions of a Hamburg winter.

The rights of children versus the rights of victims

The conflict between respecting the rights of children as too young to grasp the consequences of their actions, and holding violent criminals accountable, has been thrust into the spotlight in Germany several times over the past months.

In late September, a 12-year-old boy in the western town of Euskirchen was nearly beaten to death by a group of classmates. Authorities announced they were opening an investigation into attempted murder despite the fact that no one under 14 can be charged with a crime in Germany.

Laws prosecuting perpetrators for sexual crimes in Germany have also come under fire after the string of assaults committed in the city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve. Although some revisions to the law have been pushed through, it remains difficult to prosecute sexual offenses.


Deutsche Welle. 2016-03-10. Rare child murder in Germany raises questions over punishment

A 13-year-old boy has confessed to killing another child of the same age in Germany. Police say the motive and the object used remain unknown. German law for under-14s perscribes supervision and not criminal punishment.

Police said the suspect had been sent to a psychiatric facility on Thursday after admitting hitting his friend Fabian over the head with an object.

Fabian had gone missing on Sunday, triggering a manhunt. Searchers found his body on Monday in the outskirts of the small town of Bad Schmiedeberg in the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt.

The case raises questions over culpability. Under German law, children under the age of 14 are not regarded as criminally liable. Responsibility lies instead with their parents, legal guardian or the local youth welfare office.

Liability from 18

Full criminal liability applies only from the age of 18.

“If convicted, the boy’s actions won’t pass without consequence,” said Rudolf Egg, who heads the German Institute of Criminology in Wiesbaden.

“The age restriction doesn’t mean that youths don’t have a sense of guilt or don’t realize what they are doing,” he said, before adding that murders involving under-age juveniles occurred perhaps once a year in Germany, and, if so, usually between siblings.

Residents shocked

Bad Schiedeberg’s mayor, Stefan Dammhayn, said residents were shocked, especially by the young age of the victim and the suspect.

“The town has 4,200 residents and at that scale people know one another,” said Dammhayn.

District chief administrator Jürgen Dannenberg said neither of the two boys had previously come to the attention of authorities.
