Hitler Makes SS Independent, Answerable Only to Him

Adolf Hitler and Ernst Röhm

Adolf Hitler declares that the SS will from this day on be an independent organization that's responsible to him alone. This places them entirely outside of and above the law.

No matter what any member of the SS does, they can and will only be judged by the SS itself and, ultimately, Adolf Hitler. No police officials and no courts have any jurisdiction over the SS in any way.

Previously the SS had been subordinate to and answerable to the SA, but Heinrich Himmler and the SS played a key role in eliminating the leadership of the SA in the Night of the Long Knives, June 30-July 2.

This new status is effectively a reward for going above and beyond the law when serving Hitler's goals.
