Two Chinese tourists were detained in Berlin for making the straight-armed Hitler salute for photos in front of the Reichstag parliament building, a police spokeswoman said on Sunday.

The holidaymakers were spotted by officers on a routine patrol Saturday snapping smartphone pictures of each other posing with the banned gesture outside the historic landmark in the heart of the German capital.

"A probe on suspicion of using the symbols of anti-constitutional organisations was opened against the two Chinese men, aged 36 and 49," the spokeswoman told AFP.

The pair were questioned at a local police station and released after paying 500 euros ($589) bail each.


Oh no no no! The German government can't have any hint of nationalism in it's state... Cuffs for everyone!

I'm sure they must have thought they were in Rome where this salute originated (at least I think).

Edit:  upon further thought, it's absolutely ridiculous that the bagels have demonized the raising of one's arm!!!  I'm actually a little peeved at this one.  What the hell else are we supposed to do?  A closed fist? 

***Screenshot does not do video justice.  That music will bring you to tears.


notice @337.  I started a thread months back about how 337 plays a huge role in my life.  Since that thread I've had countless encounters that knocked my socks off.  I really need to start writing these down to share the insanity.  :D
