From Nathan Wajsman 
> shot was not an ordinary Wehrmacht soldier--the SS were a special
corps, responsible for many of the worst war crimes. Of course, after
the war they all claimed to be just "following orders" etc. Basically,
the guy got what he deserved.
- ---------------------------------

Yes the SS were a special corp, BUT, many in the SS were just ordinary
policemen doing police work.  How do you (or the pole) know what he
deserved?  To be arbitrarily shot and robbed by a one man judge and
jury is disgusting, and his INDIVIDUAL action is no worse than many
other war crimes.

He could have been a law abiding cop caught up in the general round-up.
 Who knows.  Do you?
