BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A 59-year-old German man who has spent the last 34 years in jail has turned down offers to be let out, an official said on Saturday.

"He rejected an offer to leave in 1992," Thomas Melzer, a spokesman for the Brandenburg state justice ministry, told Bild newspaper. "We can't do anything if someone sentenced to life in prison doesn't want to leave."

The man, identified only as Gerold H, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1972 when the area was part of communist East Germany.

German prisoners have no obligation to agree to leave jail before their sentences have been completed.

What would he do? Where would he go? Do they have Walmarts there? He could be a greeter like the creepy dude at the Walmart by my house.

The prison should charge him for room/board if he doesn't want to leave.

This thread could best be summed up with Morgan Freemans monologue towards the end of Shawshank Redemption.

Why not?

My dad , who worked with the corrections system for years, said he would see the same guys check in when the weather turned cold just so they could sleep in a warm place and get 3 hot meals a day.

They said they cant, he can by the law serve his full term, which was life. Its how the system is.

They should offer to end his life. Of course, the offer should be made discreetly and in the middle of the night.

Premeditated Murder actually, though, he was faslely accused, and they finally admitted it after 9 years.
