American Tourist Punched For Giving Nazi Salute In Germany

The attack victim is being investigated for violating Germany's laws against displaying Nazi symbols or slogans
An American tourist was punched by a passerby in Germany for displaying a Nazi salute several times.
When one such drunken dumbass, an American, started throwing out the stiff-armed Nazi salute in downtown Dresden, he got what he deserved: a swift punch.
On 5 August, two Chinese tourists were caught taking photos of themselves making the gesture in front of Berlin's Reichstag building. The incident took place at 8:15 a.m. local time, police said.
The American also had insignia of "unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols", Deutsche Welle reported. According to official accounts, the unknown attacker fled the scene and is now being sought for causing bodily harm.
The Dresden incident occurred just a week after two Chinese tourists were detained for giving Nazi salutes outside Berlin's Reichstag, once home to the Imperial Diet. The duo was arrested but was eventually released after paying a fine of about $1,000.
Germany criminal code inflicts heavy punishment against the uses of Nazi symbols and images, and offenders may carry up to three years in prison.
