German Jew Gets 5 Years for Using Slugs in Slots

A five-year prison sentence was imposed upon an unemployed Jewish printer for using slugs and counterfeit coins in telephones and automatic machines because “there is nothing left for the Jews in Germany to do but injure the state.”

The prisoner, Julius Heyman, allegedly confessed to the crime and gave this as his motive, according to the public prosecutor.

The prosecutor in demanding the highest sentence that could be imposed by the court declared that “if the Jew wishes to follow the Old Testament and avenge himself, the German court will do the same.”
