A Jehovah’s Witness this time

Today I commemorate Wilhelm Kusserow, a who was executed on this day in 1940 for refusing to serve in the army in Nazi Germany. He was a Jehovah’s Witness and his faith prohibited military service. His brother would later meet with the same fate, for the same reason.

This will be my last Executed Today entry for this month. I had quite a few, five I think, for April. And four upcoming for May: an embittered father, a doctor who was as kind to his patients as he was a terror to his wife, a freed slave with extensive knowledge of the Bible, and a rapist who went back and murdered his victim after he got out of prison. All of them murderers, with seven victims between them.

    Can I make a guess here or will it spoil the ending? B/c my guess is your rapist that went back and killed his victim later was Charles Campbell out of Washington state? He was a real nasty piece of work.

      You are quite correct, it is indeed Mr. Campbell whom I’m honoring on the anniversary of his much-deserved death.

      Okay, I was supposed to get Charles Campbell up tomorrow, but he got bumped back another year in favor of someone else. What happens sometimes is Jason writes me: “Somebody wrote a guest post for me that’s supposed to run on this date where I already promised to run your post. Do you mind if I run their post instead?” I’m okay with it.
