German Police Raided a Tor Exit Node Operator

According to a message on the tor-relays mailing list, a Tor exit node operator in Germany was raided by the police.

Volker wrote that law enforcement officers raided him because “some Nazis used TOR to send nazi-emails to several schools in Germany.” Authorities accused him of Volksverhetzung, which is “incitement to hatred” (which in Germany means “insulting… segments of the population”).

The operator was a marijuana smoker (illegal) so he is now potentially in trouble for possessing marijuana.

Hi folks.
On Tuesday morning police knocked on my door, performing a full house search.
Some Nazis used TOR to send nazi-emails to several schools in Germany.
Unfortunately their mails left one of my Exit Servers from dark- to
clearweb, so an ip address, registered on my name, was the last stamp.
Now im accused of Volksverhetzung (german, try to find a good translation).
It means spreading bad nazi bullshit to the internet.

I can take this down by showing them German Telemediengesetz §8, which
protects TOR operators in Germany.
Unfortunately they found some dope (yea, 420guy here) during the house
search, which  makes thing even more complicated.

Now I am considering shutting down all my exits.
I promise you guys, there is nothing more bad than a police house search in
the early morning hourse. Even a burglary would be less worse. Burglars
come, steal, go and you never hear again from them.
Police comes, searches through all your belongings, destroys your privacy,
is allowed to take ALL what they want - and they will send you bad bad
letters afterwards.

What are your thoughts about this?

Best regards,
volker

inb4 some American makes a free speech joke as if you can say something offensive in the United States using your real name without losing your job and having your bank accounts closed. And why are you emailing schools? Trying to get out of class?

This will only turn into a Tor-related case, in my opinion, if German authorities decide to pursue the operator for the activity coming from his exit nodes.

This part is obviously true, lol:

Poor guy. I never had the balls to operate a tor exit but in my country it would be suicide. I was raided too and know what thats like. And now their going to get you in trouble for a little marijuana. Thanks for standing up for our rights brother and stay strong!

Just leave exit node operation to the feds, who the fuck is using Tor to access the WWW anyway. It’s barely even useful for spooks like its intended purpose was.

Facts we don’t have any freedom in America. Freedom to get fucked up the ass or get shot dead by a cop.
