As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Eight and a Half Year
I feel strange when I learn that it will bring you into prison for no longer than 8.5 years when you kill a person and eat him for nothing than your own sexual kick and pleasure.
Okay, the person was consenting.
So, does that make the murder to killing on demand?
We had a quite lively discussion about this at the office, too. The problem is - what would be a fair sentence for the Cannibal? He had a thing about wanting to kill and eat a Human. It must be a man and it must be in consent.
He would not have eaten someone who didn't consent, that's proven, since he let go sevral others who stopped the, what they thought, game.
But for him it wasn't a game, he was - excuse me - dead serious.
Is he responsible to realize that his consenting victim was unable to give consent because of whatever mental problems?
Is he responsible for giving this guy what he had wanted?
I think he is, but that might be because I have some special relation to the meanings of the word "consent" and "being able to consent". For me, this cannibal Armin Meiwes has a really really sick fantasy where consent is no longer a valid point or excuse for anything.
Who will know if the victim was "really" consenting. Who will know if it wasn't just a game for him and he was unable to stop it when he hit the edge? Who will know if Mr. Meiwes won't go out in 6 years and look for the next victim on the Internet, even when he now claims, that he'll never do it again, because his fantasy is fulfilled. I mean, who can judge it? There aren't so many of cannibals around out there for psychologists to have any experience with them. Who can judge how far a person with mental problems is able to consent? Obviously the German Judge couldn't.
