“Eat Your Horny Flesh”

A top German court ordered a cannibal to be retried Friday, saying his manslaughter conviction for killing and eating a willing victim was too lenient.

“The conviction only for manslaughter and not for murder does not stand up to legal review,” the Federal Court of Justice said in a statement, upholding an appeal by prosecutors.

Armin Meiwes, 43, was sentenced to eight and a half years in January 2004 after a gory case that both fascinated and repulsed Germany and the world.

Meiwes admitted to killing a Berlin computer specialist, Bernd-Juergen B, he met via the Internet, but was spared a murder conviction as the victim had asked to be eaten in a startling case of sexual fetishism.

Prosecutors believed Meiwes should have been convicted of murder as he had killed to satisfy perverted desires. Meiwes’ lawyer urged the lesser “killing on request,” a form of illegal euthanasia that carries a maximum five year sentence.

All Cartoonists Are Perverts Anyway

“The man in the mask, who had stripped me completely naked, handed me a safety razor and shaving cream and ordered me to shave myself down there. While I complied without protest, he began filming me from different angles with his video camera.”

On April 7, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police arrested Hideka Tada, age 38, who, writing for Dojinsha Co. under the pen name “Hideki Nonomura” has been acclaimed for his famous SM cartoons in which adolescent females with enormous breasts undergo acts of humiliation similar to the one above. Tada, it seems, wasn’t content merely to imagine such activities, but wanted to experience the real thing before turning to his sketchpad.

“Nonomura’s works were extremely popular. Bookstores would set up exclusive corners just to display his books. He was regarded by many as the ‘Emperor’ of this type of cartoon business and rumor had it he raked in 100 million yen a year via consignment sales to the media.”
