Everyone makes mistakes from time to time; it’s not fair to go too hard on the poor lad.
Besides, Germany’s prison cells need to be reserved for the real menaces to society.
A Syrian teen has been convicted in a near-fatal stabbing attack in Germany but will only serve a suspended sentence and attend mandatory schooling, despite a record of threatening other lives in his host country, according to reports.
Mohammad A., 17, vowed to attack his victim on a train platform in Beucha, and fulfilled his promise days later, executing a stabbing which he knew was “life-threatening,” according to the prosecution.
Sebastian M., 17, barely survived after being rushed into surgery at the University of Leipzig with knife wounds to both thighs, clavicle, abdomen, and arm.
Mohammad was reportedly enraged that a girl he fancied was dating Sebastian instead, motivating his brutal attack.
“Originally, the arrest warrant had been issued against him because of the urgent suspicion of attempted manslaughter,” Epoch Times reports.
Mohammad has been released and will only serve a two year suspended sentence.
The court discovered Mohammad had a documented history of violent threats in German youth asylum centers.
