6. Tip of the hat in that first panel with the reference to that "Kristallnacht" creep -

the guy was actually convicted of manslaughter in France for running down a smaller boat with his yacht, and killing a doctor aboard that boat.


"Tom Perkins

In 1996, Perkins was racing his yacht in France when he collided with a smaller boat, killing a French doctor on board, he wrote in his 2008 memoir, “Valley Boy: The Education of Tom Perkins.”

Perkins was found guilty by a French court. Jail sentences were suspended, and he was ordered to pay a fine of $10,000.

Perkins described it like this: “Arrested and tried in a foreign court in a language you don’t understand, by judges indifferent — or worse — to justice, represented by an inappropriate lawyer with the negative outcome preordained.”"
