in liberal terms quite outdated

though this film was mostly intersting because of its topic
the ending left me with a strange feeling.

after the police officer has shot the murderer
he said "he was already dead for a long time",
which could be interpretated that it was okay to kill him,
that it makes no difference if he is alive or dead.
that was just a ultra-right wing position at the end

out of a european view quite horrible
and pro-death-sentence
