A father's revenge

    In 1995, a French court convicted a German doctor in absentia of manslaughter in a girl's 1982 death. Germany refuses to extradite him. This past weekend, the doctor was found tied up and gagged on the steps of a French courthouse. The girl's father is the suspect in the kidnapping.

    I thought only the Mossad did this type of stuff.

    Given that the German doctor was delivered to the courthouse, I think a decent case can be made for this. Plenty of fathers would have delivered him to the morgue.

    Under international law, the French may not be able to keep Krombach in jail if Germany objects. The Ronnie Biggs kidnapping from Brazil in 1981 is a precedent.

    OK, I stopped reading a few paragraphs in...but the doctor was living with the girl's mother? So was he essentially in a stepfather role, and drugged her to rape her?

    Because if so, the restraint shown by the father in this case is admirable.

    Shocked, I tell you, shocked, that the French won something.

    Or, the doctor was a "live-in" BF, rather than being married to her and being considered as step-father.

    Mel Gibson and "Ransom" feels that father didn't go far enough to get revenge.

    Right. I'm saying I read Inky's lead-in and figured it was a doctor who accidentally overdosed her. I was just shocked to find out this wasn't in a professional setting, that he knew this girl and basically drugged her to rape her.
