This probably should not be included in this noble Forum, but I feel compelled to respond.
I recall this incident, and look back upon it as a classic example of Law West of the Pecos.
These four trained, but stupid, Nazi agents, were put shore in Florida in June-42, by a German submarine.
After stashing their equipment, they rode a bus to New York City, and were immediately apprehended by the FBI..not by their (FBI) efforts, but by the action of informants.
The Law West of the Pecos and Judge Roy Bean enter here....
The would-be saboteurs were tried and convicted, then executed8 August 1942, so their "grand tour to see the USA" lasted just about two months.
That is the way Judge Roy Bean did things out in West Texas, in the "good old days"...try and convict the dastardly cowards today, then hang them from the nearest tree in the morning. There was no appeal in his court. (Well, I guess you could appeal, if you thought you could out draw him.)
On a serious note, it was disturbing, of course, just as we are disturbed by an element in today's society. U-Boats were sinking shipping all up and down the East coast and in the Gulf of Mexico at the time, and now this plague has been imposed upon our psyche.
Just as the Roy Beans overcame adversity in their day, we will stand as tall as ever, and overcome today's pestalence.
