Well, the fact that my name is "Funkychinaman" means I can't be THAT politically correct.

I do want to keep it civil though.

That being said, I'm not some sort of godless turtle-neck and tweed jacket wearing coffee-shop socialist drone of the politically correct left. I've always been pretty conservative, though I'm far more libertarian now than I was in college. But one thing conservatives are known for that remains true of me is being tough on crime, and that includes crimes against humanity. (How's that for a segue?)

I did not want to list him as an "SS criminal," but simply as an "SS trooper," seeing how the title of "soldier" had been denied them by the IMT. I saw no reason why we should restore a title that had been denied them by a body far more qualifed that we were. The fact that the person in the screencap had just put a bullet through the head of a woman for the crime of having a nosebleed and being Jewish seems to indicate that the man, indeed, is a criminal. And "Trooper" was the most basic SS rank, so it seems appropriate.
The term trooper or Mann was replaced in 1941 with the term Schütze or Rifleman in the Waffen-SS which is the equivalent to Private in the US Army.

I know what you are saying it's just in the credits the actors are listed as X so that is what should be put down. We list the actors characters as what is in the credits and verified by IMDb nothing more or less. IMFDB has more and more industry people looking through it so it's best to keep it to what the credits say.
